    What Kinds Of Things Can Happen...

    I play this game all the time time at work. Interesting topic to be posted here. We refresh our Hazard Vulnerability Analysis (HVA) on an annual basis and run Emergency Preparedness drills based on our highest scoring items. We use the Kaiser Permanente model. The struggle with HVA’s is getting a group to agree on the scoring of each item. Based on the past year’s experience, people’s perspectives change. But thats actually the point of doing an annual review. Since I like to keep work and play separate, I’ll just leave those comments without citing examples. Look up the model to get some more ideas if you like. It can be a looong conversation! Water is usually near the top of the list so Duff is right on track

    Catastrophe or not, access to fresh water will always be a concern for us humans. We're lucky here in MN, there are pretty much sources nearby for most of of our population. I've got 4 different purifiers for shiat hitting the fan scenarios. They are in my bug out bags. Parts of this country would be truly farked if access to plentiful water ceased. It's already happening in parts, at a slow pace though. It will be one of the biggest issues facing our species in the next 100 years.

    Big rock in the CONUS, agreed. EMP would take out the whole country, coming from a nuclear detonation in space. Basically destroy the power grid and the telecom grid, unless those folks have taken precautions they haven't advertised. Major earthquake like New Madrid. Yellowstone Caldera supervolcano... Mount Ranier erupts (local but with national effects as yet undefined.). Major Tsunami on either coast. Major disease epidemic like 1918 spanish flu only worse. Natural mutation or human intervention. Ebola, whatever. Virus so antibiotics don't help. Nearby supernova. Super large solar flare. Change in ocean currents causing major transition in climate (that has got europe scared bad. look at how far north most of Europe is. It is as warm as it is due to a warm current that starts out as the gulf stream. If anything were to happen to that..... Here is a real interesting map, with europe superimposed over north america. Paris ends up on Canadian border. Berlin is north of Winnipeg. It would be quite a lifestyle change, eh?

    Birds Everywhere!!!!

    Eyeguy, I left the camera out for 1 day and had 800+ pictures, some very good photos but lots of tube feeders blowing in the wind too so those went to the other end of the feeder for a couple days. Then in a moment of stupidity I x'd out of the wrong window and poof, all gone. That's a bad angle for focus, it's just my game camera dangling about 1 -1 1/2 foot away on a piece of junk angle iron at a bad angle but it worked for my purpose. I had it on 8 MP, I'll try further away and 10 MP. I will say it does look pretty dumb. I had lots of clear worse looking pictures of the bird from hell but they got deleted.

    Bear Baiting

    We had 4 of 6 baits hit. Today I drove ATV to about 40 yards of bait, got off, grabbed the goody bucket and headed to the bait. Ended up watching a close 300 lb bear have lunch. After 15 minutes he wandered off. I refilled the bait. I know where my stand is going.

    I'm convinced they are grosbeaks now because I've seen a couple young males like the one in this photo on the far end. They are a week or so older and showing their color now. These are a little fuzzy, first try with a game camera mounted and focus needs to be more straight on I think but at least I finally got pictures. So what do I have in the second picture? Are they just younger ones or finches, young purple maybe? I have a ton of the grosbeaks now but zero mature males, in fact I think I've seen only 1 or 2 all summer. That's why I doubted that's what they were.

    Anyone Catching Them Yet

    For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August. Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing. Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short? Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish, 2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks. Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things. It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down. Tune in next week for another episode.

    Ice House Wheel Well Question

    My thought was building an axle similar to this. Then instead of using cranks I was going to use some 5000lb Square Bullydog jacks. Then making a handle I could put my impact on to lift and lower the Ice House. With having the camper, I already have the axle, electric brakes and springs. Its just the matter of welding it up and making it work. This is an example of the Clipper Ice, which Im trying to duplicate, just trying to find the dimensions.

    Bear Baiting

    I'm hunting no quota, have 3 for sure different bears maybe 4 on my bait. One is a giant boar. Headed back north tonight, will rebait an and set my stand in the morning. Only took 2 days for them to start hitting, my guess they were already in the area because of the mass quantity of acorns fall by the bait site.

    Ice House Wheel Well Question

    I got the floor and walls ripped out. Im starting fresh, down to studs on everything. Im at the stage where I will get the wheel wells cut out and the drop axles built. Then the fun stuff begins, hopefully all done before the ice sets in.

    Ice House Wheel Well Question

    Welcome to the forum. Wow for $400 bucks it looks like you have a good foundation for a nice house. Not sure if you pulled the walls apart but if it was flooded the insulation in the walls may also be pretty wet. You may want to remove that so it doesn't mold or freeze in the winter if still wet. Good luck and keep posting pictures of your progress. Sorry, not much help on your question.

    Very Impressive Journey!

    I followed both the boys trip this spring, and these folks as well during their trip. There was actually a web site where you could track on a map their progress compared to the spring trip in real time, so cool watching how close the two trips were in time and distance. http://timberjay.com/stories/paddling-pair-sets-new-border-route-record,15360 Congrats to the two of them! (And the boys as well for their effort this spring) 220 miles of canoeing and portaging in 63 hours straight. Unreal. Gives hope to us fellow old timers. I'm guessing he doesn't have a problem opening a pickle jar.

    Wheeled Fish House

    Getting the moisture out is key. Even a few guys breathing in a house all day and night will add moisture. Anyone who has ever slept in a tent hunting late season and woke up to frost and dripping on the top knows that. What I did on a few of my old skid houses was added the small round vents posted above, one right behind the heater so it always had fresh burnable air and one on the opposite roof peak on the other side. This let the rising heat push the moisture out of the house and worked pretty well. Let us know what you come up with this winter.

    Wheeled Fish House

    I have a Suburban NT-20 SQ, 19,000 BTU vented in my 6.5 X 12 wheelhouse. I drill my 6 holes (8") with house fully up taking extreme steps making sure no snow, ice or water gets on the floor. I also found a unique way to 100% seal my holes so no outside air gets into my house through the holes. My house is also well sealed. At -22 deg. with 20 mph wind my furnace run time us about 18-20 min. per hour and my windows don't even "fog up" with 3 guys fishing. Drilling or re-driling holes in a skid, it's nearly impossible to avoid avoiding snow, ice shavings & water on the inside floor which may be the source of inside moisture. Maybe venting as leech suggested will help, our even power vent until the floor dries could help. Sorta like taking a shower in a bathroom without a bath fan, when a bit of condensation shows up on the mirror.

    Getting Rid Of Snakes

    We used to get garter and milk snakes during the spring in the house growing up. I figured they were hibernating somewhere in the foundation and looking for a way out or hunting mice. Was always a sight watching my mom walk by with a snake in her hands. She started wearing gloves after a couple of milk snake bites.

    "Quick" game changers will be what has always pretty much been......super volcano type thing, big rock from space, gamma radiation burst from somewhere, some type of airborne containment, magnetic shenanigans. Odds are pretty slim in our lifetime, but all will happen again.

    What Kinds Of Things Can Happen...

    Most of the things I can think of would be somewhat localized. EMP, power failure, storm/weather could all be sizable but still nothing that would likely impact the nation as a whole so while life could get interesting for awhile in the impacted area there would be available assistance from outside sources to help get control of the situation and prevent a complete brake down of society. Prevention would mostly be related to ensuring the power grid is maintained with fail safes built in to prevent wide scale issues. Hard to guard against weather and storms beyond being smarter about where we choose to live and continually improving our building practices to better withstand whatever mother nature can dish out. On an individual level having a supply of some basic emergency supplies would probably be enough to keep you alive long enough. Something that would be more frightening would be something like a disease that ends up being easily transmittable with a high mortality rate. There would potentially be little we could do to stop the spread once it got beyond a certain point. Depending how far it spread and how long it lasts it could have potentially catastrophic implications.

    Warning about 80 is just for the day you spray right? It is getting cooler now so I should be ok. Del, I wonder if that Brushtox has mixing instructions for brush killing. That would be pretty strong and I have been warned about following the instructions exactly. Thank you. I will check into it today.

    Anyone Catching Them Yet

    Nice bag of fish there Duff! I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike. Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though. Horrible conversion rate. The bite is still on reaction baits for me. Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait. Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to. It’s been weird with all the short bites lately. I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait. Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed. I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em. I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them. We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area. The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed. Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed. Bad photo but better n nuthin.

    Magnet Fishing

    I'll have to watch a video or two to get my brain in the magnet mode, once I get my magnet in the mail. I was already told about a high end spear in a nearby shallow lake and a shotgun in a deep local lake. There has also been historical newspaper articles about a couple meteorites that landed in a couple local lakes.. I probably won't find a dam thing worth my time but it would be nice to fish for something I can actually use instead of fish. But if I have an old jigging spoon, from the lake bottom, stuck to the magnet... Does that count as a fishing line??

    Pick them up with your hands, put them in a bag, paper or plastic, drive to a nearby waterway and release them on the shore. They don't bite and are good for the environment.

    Getting Rid Of Snakes

    I get it that some people don’t like them but those are really harmless. As others mentioned, more beneficial than a nuisance. They’ll thin out as they disperse and probably not be so prevalent next year. I know, I know, that’s not a plan the wives are usually happy with. I won’t even let any of my family kill bull snakes on our property. Good mouse control.

    St Croix Jigging Rods?

    I own two rods that I use for walleye jigging. When I want super sensitivity I go with my Fenwick Elite Tech 6'-6" medium power ultra fast tip. When I want a to present a little more subtly, I go with my St. Croix Premier 6'-6" Premier medium power fast tip. Both are excellent in my view. One thing that I learned through experience it to downsize on the reals. I originally outfitted my St. Croix with a Pflueger Trion spinning reel, which is a step down from the President. Later, I changed to the Pflueger Supreme reel in a smaller size and the lighter weight made a huge difference on how the rod felt in my hand, how much less tiring it was to use, and how much more sensitive the outfit became as a whole. It's not necessary to have mega line capacity when typically we only use maybe 50' - 75' at any given time. Just my $.02.
