    Can't make this stuff up..

    So I had just finished setting up and seam sealing my WL Old Man Winter Tarp and was feeling quite proud. Suddenly I heard liquid hitting the ground a few feet away from my tarp. Wait a minute, it's not supposed to rain until tonight, I look up into the giant tree near my trees I selected to hang from and lo and behold Little Ricky here came out of his hole to do business and compliment me on my tarp. Looks like I'll have some company around for my hang tonight. Just one more reason I love being out in the woods!!

    As pesky as they can be, they are still fun. Curious, ornery, but fun.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I guess Ricky was trying to help test your seam sealing. But was just a little off on his aim (thankfully).

    Wait until he figures out you got food and comes crawling down for a snuggle session

    Looks like Ricky found a hollow tree to live in? Hmmmm....a "here's your sign" moment?
    Stay safe out there.

    Ha ha. Ill be fine. He is still just chillin and I gave him the rest of my dinner if he will eat it.. Figured I would head off any midnite munchie runs he decides to make. Saw a bunch of squirrels playing at dusk as well. Its my lil bro who has to worry about raccoons he got bit 5 times growing up, twice by pet raccoons. He was not amused when I sent him this pic and cracked a joke.

    this is great!
    no! you can't make that stuff up.


    I saw a squirrel poop once while climbing a tree. I thought it was one of the greatest things I have witnessed out in the woods.

    I guess this is not the thread to talk about what a great backstop is made by a hollow place in a tree... and no need to dig, if he stays up there afterwards.
