I was a volunteer at this fire tower

Yeah, the ones out west are a little larger and more advanced with the more prevalent and higher threat of fires. Most, if not all, towers around here have been retired for quite a few decades.

I've been wanting to stay in one of the retired ones the forest service rents out west there. I think that'd be a pretty cool experience.

Another bout of Boundary Waters snowshoeing today with my brother and Charlie. Chilly (+8F), windy, and snowy (~4" throughout the day) this time, so no slush to deal with. But plenty of thin ice and open water, though I chalk that up to the Kawishiwi River running through the lake we chose to explore. Either way, a fun day out in this winter wonderland!

Charlie and I waiting back as my brother chopped through the ice to see how thick it was, as a precaution. Ended up being only about 4" thick in most areas. Minimum considered for walking on.

Hi TBR17,

I was asked to get involved with Monster Trucks and even invited to the SilverDome in Michigan (when the Lions played there). After picking the dirt out of my nose...trying to stop my ears ringing etc... I folded my tent and went home...Turned it over to Ford Marketing if they wanted any part of this action...I had to draw the line....NFW! Marketing said they did okay with no more than Bob Chandler and Big Foot....

best,

That's pretty cool. They are beasts designed to handle lots of HP and punishment. The pic of this one looks like more of a Redneck Yacht Club swamp runner down here in SW FL. That's the name of the place they go to play.
The company I work for has a facility in Auburn Hills. I had a chance to see the Silver Dome in a bad state of disrepair a few years before they took what was left of her down. Roof was all caved in.

Then, of course, there’s this crazy thing powered by a CAT MOTOR...

For those who think AZ is always hot and 108*. Today it freezing in the mid 40's with thunder, lightning, pouring rain and even some sleet. 🥶

You have more hail on your outdoor kitchen countertop than there is snow in all of Toronto - even the stuff the Zamboni dumped behind the neighbourhood hockey rink has melted.

It's been a strange winter that's for sure. Last week was nice in the low 70's and now this cold front these past few days with a lot of rain. The wind picked up and then the hail started for about 30 minutes, now it's sunny again. It is a nice change from the heat as long as it doesn't last to long. :)
