I did not have the faintest idea that the moon crescent indicated a girl outhouse, but now that you mention it, it makes perfect sense.

   Did you know that when you go to mount a camel you first make the camel sit down and it is sitting on his legs and belly sort of like a sphynx  you get on and he first gets up with his back legs then he rises in the front. When you get off you do everything in reverse and the camel kneels down in front then lowers his back legs and you get off. Of course you better have a good grip so you don't slide off in the process. It is easier on an Asian camel than on an African camel because on the Asian camel you are sitting between the 2 humps and can hold on to the front one. My wife got on one in northern Mongolia and the herders nearly died laughing at her screaming as the camel got up and down. I got pictures of her bear hugging the front hump and yelling.

  Did you know the hump on a camel is a good indicator of hydration? A plump, fully erect/upright hump (two humps on Asian Camels) is a sign the camel is well watered. The hump is generally accepted to be a reservoir of fluid for camels to draw down on when they encounter periods of reduced water access. The hump(s) on a poorly hydrated camel will flop over to the side.

  One of the days I'll tell the joke about "bricking" a camel but maybe this is not the time and place for it.

   Okay, I won't post that or running out of chain with  the bear trap joke either.

  I may be a little intermittent (late?) at posting or replying for the next week due to my other scheduling issues. Stay safe and healthy. Don't stick your hand in any badger holes this week.

   Did you know most birds defecate as they fly off any roost? This is a natural trait intended to lighten the load for flying. It is also a good reason not to startle large flocks of nearby birds into flight especially if you are under their roost tree or when you have any reason to believe you may be in their initial flight path. ::) It might be a good trick to pull on your hunting or fishing buddy if he happens to be near a flock you can scare to fly out over him. :D

That's right Howard!

Quite a few years back I surprised a flock of roosted turkeys early one morning, they all flew and so did the crap, I think they all had to go, and I was lucky, they went the other way!

I was close enough that I could hear the stuff hitting the leaf covered ground!

   Did you know standard turkey hunting practices for old timers used to be to separate the flock then call them back together? If an old timer could kill the old hen he'd sit there and call in and shoot every single young one. If you've ever scattered them at night as Chuck describes, you can come back at daylight and hear them all clucking and yelping and putting to get back together. Turkeys are very social birds and call to each other constantly to keep the flock together.

    Did you know if the residents of Colorado (at least those from the Denver to Ft Collins area) ever visit West Virginia, they will never be happy living in CO again? Sorry guys but once you CO residents see our green, well watered state with real mountains instead of distant canyons and scraggly pine trees you will never be happy in the flat, parched land we have seen the last few days. Actually, some of the area up around Estes National Park is pretty and look like a nice short term vacation spot but not a long term residence area.

   My sawmill would starve to death out here.

Doc,

   Sorry about that. If the truth hurts sometimes you just have to accept it. My wife has been looking for some exciting topography ever since we landed and all it seems we saw till we went up to Estes was flat, brown, wilted corn crops with big irrigation systems running overhead.

   Our niece who is getting married today said people here are not even allowed to have a rain barrel because I guess that prevents the rainwater from reaching the aquifer and getting shared by everyone.

   And I have not been able to get grits any place we ate breakfast. No wonder they approved cannabis use out here. :D

Danny,

   The mountains we saw yesterday were nice but they were often shear, bare rock with a few scattered, sickly looking, pine trees fighting for their livelihood. The mountains were all brown with what looked like dead or dying brush. 

    There are some neat things out here and the mule deer doe I saw in the people's yard was a very big, very healthy looking deer and looked a lot bigger than our whitetails. My wife was impressed just to see a prairie dog. That's sad! No telling what these folks would do if they actually saw a big fat woodchuck sitting up beside the road or out in a meadow.

   I am glad there are people here who like this area or we would be so overrun with people we would be as crowded as NYC. The guy sitting beside me on the plane had on a Ga Bulldogs hat and was coming out to hunt elk with a bow. He likes to hunt here but then he comes back east to live. My local barber is out here this week elk or mule deer hunting but he is returning to WV after.
