    I didn't get that either?? He was 170lbs dressed I guess 200ish on the hoof. The Bear I saw was about 150. Windy and warm the whole week. Good luck when you go and post some picks. Also have a pic of me on 87 when my buddies fishing rods fell out of the truck.

    Nice. Early muzzleloader season started in VA today, I'll be hunting next Saturday and at least a couple of days the following week, then off the next two for regular firearms season.

    Yes, in Highland County. The next ridge to our north is Pendleton County, WV. Beautiful country. I'll try to get some pics when my daughter goes with me, she's the digital camera expert in the family. Palo Alto is the nearest "town" if you take a notion to search it on the web, although the post office closed in 1941 and the one room school house closed in 1946.
