@roamer_1

Not true. There is also 3 and 4 wheelers. I suspect you  may dislike that concept even more than I do,but it IS an option if all else fails,and believe it or not,but *I* am one of those people who fill themselves with hope when that is all that is left. Getting there to suck in the peace,quiet,and the beauty is more important than HOW you get there.


Not up in there @sneakypete No motors allowed past Spotted Bear, and that, road only... Spotted Bear is 80 miles in at the back of Hungry Horse Reservoir, And the start of the White River Trail - The 10 days to 2 weeks begins right there... That's where I am used to going... Where there are no roads - Not even trails - and it's too dang straight up and down for anything but feet or a horse. And there's hundreds of miles like that all around me.

Quote
And,who knows,just being able to get there at some time in the near future on a 3 wheeler just might inspire you to work a miracle or two?

Yeah,it sucks to even think about the noise disturbing the solitude of those areas,but you can turn the damn thing off once you  get there. The important thing is getting there and sucking in the beauty and peace of nature,not how you  arrived.

That's right - where it's possible. And I ain't against it. Already looking for a wore out side by side to fix up, and around a 22 ft tandem axle camper busted enough that I can afford it. Heck, I'm looking for a 3/4T full size utility van with a 4x4 conversion because I can get in the side door of that sooner than the regular doors. I can get into that right now.

So I ain't blind to it... and I can say I am already re-rigging for overlanding, somewhat like you said. But I am not under the idea that those places I can go to like that... Well, that's not anywhere near the deep woods. and nothing like it. But I DO appreciate your thought... And I am already looking that way, as a faster way to get up and around a bit.

Anyhow, if you care to reply, let's take this PM so the ridiculous thread can get back to being ridiculous.  :beer:

I am glad to hear @roamer_1 that you are not in pain! Your surgery hasn't been that long ago. There is no doubt in my mind that if you want to go  China, the holler or down by the creek to fish...you will do it! Now riding a horse...that's a different matter. :rolling:


@berdie

The Chinese Wall is not the one in China... It's a 50 mile long escarpment hundreds (maybe a thousand) feet high, way back in the Bob Marshall Wilderness... And my favorite playground.  happy77

As to a horse, getting on it is the hard part... I have every confidence that once I am on it, I ain't coming off - At least on an older duffer horse like me, not interested in shaking his giggles out before we go on... Couldn't handle a hot-rod right now.

An old friend of mine is still around... An apple jack (Appaloosa Mule) that I used to drag around the mountains when he was young. He'd be surprised to see me (though he will remember me as a friend), and even more surprised for me to try to get up on him, as I always lead him... But I bet we could figger it out.

IF I can get on him, the rest is second nature to me. And if I can't use my feet, a horse would be next best.  happy77 :beer:

I'm pretty darned sure that @roamer_1 will do whatever he puts his mind to doing @berdie . He'll figure out a way.

As much as is possible @Bigun ... Not as much I can do if I never get my legs back to right. But thanks for your confidence.  :beer:

Just a reminder: All things are possible with The Lord.

He who can move mountains, can surely get your ass up one (and back).
He might require some faith and a lot of sweat on your part, though.
I believe you are capable of both.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

There are plenty of usable weapons on all the shelves they passed.  I'd have grabbed the first thing that would cause pain.

Ukraine's English-speaking spokesperson is an American male leftist activist who wears a wig and calls himself Sarah Ashton. I'm not making this up.
Still: Do you think anyone will take Ukraine’s army seriously with a man wearing a wig as the face of the military?

Turkey fryer explodes in home after cook falls asleep

Updated: Nov 27, 2023 / 05:38 AM EST   

BURLINGTON, N.C. (WAVY) — A North Carolina family is lucky to be alive after a turkey fryer exploded inside their home.

According to authorities, a propane tank fueling the fryer exploded at a home in Burlington earlier this week. The explosion was so strong, it blew out the windows in the back of the house.

Investigators said the person cooking the turkey fell asleep and left the boiling oil unattended.  ...

Not just falling asleep while frying, but operating a turkey fryer inside a house. Good grief.

Woman arrested after shredding pet gecko in garbage disposal
Lootpress News Staff   by Lootpress News Staff   
Wednesday, January 24, 2024 5:00 pm

PUTNAM COUNTY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A couple who planned on having sex when they got home turned violent, leading to their pet gecko being shredded to pieces in the garbage disposal.

Hurricane Police say they responded to Hickory Mills Apartment about a potential domestic in progress earlier in the day. When police approached the apartment, they made contact with a male victim and the suspect, Hannah Nicole Jones. The male victim told police that they were going to have sex when they got home, but it did not work out as planned. An argument allegedly started, and the male victim stated that he called Jones a slut, in which she then struck him twice on the forearm with a curtain rod.

When police spoke to the suspect, Hannah Nicole Jones, she advised that they got into a verbal argument, where she got distraught and began to throw things. She said she threw flowerpots against the wall and busted a fish tank. She further stated that she took their pet gecko, put it in the garbage disposal, and then turned it on. The pet gecko was shredded to pieces in the garbage disposal. ...
