You'd probably have been more relaxed if it was just a bear. It would be pretty hard to convey much authority at work if your subordinates had to plug their noses!
First skunk this year and it was a closer encounter than I'd have liked. Lots of rabbits and raccoons and even turtles this year. I think I've only seen 1 deer all year and I was often seeing several each morning last year.
On the trailway yesterday, we saw a bunny, a few chipmunks and an army of poopy Canada Geese. The only deer was in our front yard as I left.
Just 100 metres down the road from us is den full of at least 6(!) baby foxes...although they are growing up and are more like teenage foxes now. They are quite active...one even scared Erin at night on the rail trail while it had some wildlife food in it's mouth.
Cool. :) A couple of years ago, a mother bear and cub were seen walking on the rail trail near Palgrave. Now that you are country folk, you never know what you will see!
Spent 2 hours last night moving a pile of old chopped wood away from the house...and as we don't have a wheel barrow yet, it was quite the workout; that would never happen in the city!
'Bent has been known to log "logging".
We've been using a terrific Lee Valley wheelbarrow for years. It is especially useful for filling with water and soaking all your AR gear post-race. :)
Ironically, several of my strength exercises in the indoor gym are called woodchops, lumberjacks, etc.
Maybe I should just sign up for BentCamp. I wonder how much I have to pay to chop and haul real wood in the outdoors?
Let us know what your boot camp costs. We could easily take 25% off the top for our scenic outdoor camp. If you play your cards right, that could even include room and board. :)
... and all these years I thought that the Lee Valley Smart Cart was just a mobile tub for beer and ice?!?!
It's perfect for everything, FB.
It was even a chariot for the late lamented Thunderdog in her last year.
