Through the snow to ribs2 we go!

3 posts in this topic

I added a fresh rib cage and some sunflower seeds to rib2 today. Lots of chickadees, a couple downies, and a hairy woodpecker were there when I arrived. I didn't stay long to see if any Boreals would show up. I put up a cheap-o bird feeder with sunflowers in it too. Its pretty ugly, the dog chewed it up a bit and I was going to throw it out. I figured its still functional and ugly enough that no one should take it. Hopefully it will attract finches, grosebeaks etc.

We had to blaze our own way up S. Adirmal. Hopefully it gets plowed soon. If you go make sure you have 4 wheel drive. I remember one year they quite plowing it.

Molly the overly enthusiastic lab leading the way.

Thanks for the heads-up, Jay. I'm planning a couple trips there yet this week. Good to see birds have returned.

Sure looks desolate Jay!...not an area one would like to have car/truck problems in grin....I used to see magpies in that lone tree on the left in your image ....I picked up some more "black oil" today also..."blankety blank" deer ate all the black oil seed I put out for the birds at Carey Lake this last week....seed has dropped a few bucks from last years prices.....I think I'll "rearrange" the station at Ribs1.....I've been there 3 weekends in a row and nothing "zip"(well, a lone squirrel of course) ....it was "alot" better in the original places I put the "treats" last year.....the ribs last week were not touched and covered with snow...think I'll place them back in the trees as Ribs 2......plus add more seed....

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
