    I'm blessed.

    Fred +1 on the bear spray but you can't wear that bear bell cause 1) you might not get to see as many bears which is one of the true treats and treasures of being in the mountains and 2) you will hear lots of snickering after you pass folks on the trail!

    I haven't started the one I got for Christmas yet.

    Here's one I built last winter. It's a .58 calibre and I copied it off of an original that was made in the early 1760's in PA.





    Here's the purple Strat I picked up a couple weeks ago (my christmas present from me to me).

    Rog,
    So far, sounds like you got the best present. A back country fishing trip with your son before he heads off to college is absolutely priceless!

    Cherish every moment of your trip with your son. You are indeed a lucky man!
    I am green with envy.

    Jeff your flintlock is a work of art ! Flintlocks were the firearms of the frontier.
    Black powder smoke is the smell of freedom. Squirrel hunters became patriots.
    Gone fishing.
