Tennessee

I am in Tennessee tonight on another of my continuous "Quest for Fire" trips. My wife was not thrilled with being left at home but she has her trusty Mini 14, the dogs will guard the place and the noble ferrets will handle internal security, with a little help from Midori the cat if the snake gets back in the house.  I will be back home tomorrow evening. It has been an interesting trip so far.

I know that I have some e-mail to respond to.  Right now I am using a Kindle and the terrible Wi-Fi at my motel. Picking out words with a stylus one letter at a time is wearing me out so I will get the email answered tomorrow when I get home.

  1. Did she want to travel with you or just a little creeped out at being left alone in the woods? We talked about that at work one day, most live in town (St Louis). They think we're out in the wilds and it's dangerous. Really? I don't have too many drive bys out here, unless it's our neighbor on a 4 wheeler bringing beer. Of course we don't have grizzley bears or (normally) wolves and the coyotes pretty much stay to themselves if people are around. I'm so at peace here and hate going into town . They told me that people go out to the "country" and end up dead and buried in someone's basement. Too much tv for those folks!!

    1. The more people that believe that about us "country" folks, the better I like it, lol.

  2. This is a "business" trip that I took to meet some folks. She isn't much interested in those. She will be safe out at the place but she doesn't like being left alone. I won't have been gone that long, I'll be home this evening.

  3. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)

    Come to Texas!

    We got Buffalo the size of buses and Sharks the size of Meglodans (Giant prehistoric 60 foot sharks)

    We got so many prepper/survivalists down here its pathetic. I was at a friends house last night. Too say that he's like minded is an understatement. I bartered a shortwave radio (I already have one) for a hatchet that is Swiss made and worth at least $100 or more. The hatchet is an SaS brand that is at least 40 to 60 years old. (I prefer older steel and not this new Chinease made garbage)

    I may barter some other stuff in time.

    Hopefully your foray into Tennessee will prove beneficial.

    If you come to Texas you and stay awhile you will get a ranch, a rifle and a few longhorns (we will get you a big hat too)

    1. When Harry isn't wearing a ball cap, he strikes me as a coonskin hat kinda guy.

    3. I saw the show about Megladon. I'll pass on that exotic adventure.

      I wouldn't mind a coon skin cap, but it would have to be faux coonskin!

  4. I thought you bought a new laptop not long ago?

    See another reason to reject email.

    1. I did. But it is hooked up to a battery backup, three printers, two drives, and a cable for my camera. I'm not about to hook that thing up again so it isn't moving. I had a little tiny key board for my Kindle, but I was too tired to mess with it so I just used the stylus.

    1. It was nice. I got a change of pace, met some interesting people, went to the Barnes and Noble books store, and hung out a the big lake they have outside Chattanooga. I needed a change.
