Utah isn't a bad place, our firearm laws are quite awesome (not as awesome as Wyoming but still awesome) I ride my dirt bike from the end of April until the end of November, rock climb and hike in some of the coolest canyons you can find, Wakeboard all summer, and snowboard all winter. The only problem is being Mormon in Utah can be rough, you get a lot of people who can be really judgemental.
That will give me an excuse to actually go boarding this year, I haven't been since the beginning of the 09 season, I'm not really that great... If you come in January I'll teach you how to snowboard on ice, if you can snowboard on ice you can snowboard on anything.
Did I mention the firearm laws=Awesome the only place you can't carry a gun in this state is a Mormon church, federal property or anywhere that has a posted sign stating firearms aren't allowed.
Yeah... the whole body purity thing didn't do my uncle much good when bone cancer wracked his body. Of course his sister didn't help either with the whole "oooh your wife's just callin' ya home " shtuff. :P Kidding though, as i wish I could kick the caffeine but not yet:/
You need more than a dirt bike!

Even though I have to move my hives around to get maximum advantage of the blooms, I always keep at least one hive here at the house just to have that powerful life-force nearby. Good for the soul. Plus there is walking nearby the hive you get this warm, sweet smell that cannot be described.

I am mentoring a neighbor gal and the other day my son and I were up at her place going through her hive with her and suddenly there was a "change in the force", I asked her if she felt it and she had to think a second but she did and almost missed it. I would have missed it myself if it hadn't have been for her, what with me being the mentor and all I need to notice these things and communicate them to her. If it had been just my son and me I may have just ignored it. That is what I mean by interesting. Hard to put it into words so an outsider can understand.

I have heard that about beekeeping. Many years ago when I was a paramedic, there was a fellow paramedic that kept bees. I would go and tend the hives sometimes wearing only bathing trunks and he 'knew' his bees and they 'knew' him. His wife was terrified of them.

Do you sell the honey? What got you started in 'bees'?

Default Just and update

Finally got around to shortening a couple of shotgun barrels. An old Remington model 11-48 30" full choke that I bought back in '56 is now a 20" improved cylinder with the stock and forend painted about a dozen light coats of camo green. Looks great and handles well.

Also took my old Winchester model 1897 take-down which was made in 1911 and which I purchased in 1967 and had refinished in 1981 and turned it into a 20" cylinder bore also.

Now I can actually hit a barn door, if I'm inside the barn that is.

I've read some threads where guys have said doing this to a shotgun is just pure sacrilege. Well, it probably is if it happens to their guns, but now I'll actually go out and shoot them and have a good time, plus, having one handy downstairs and one upstairs is just a bonus.

Keep on shooting and I sure hope that pharmacist in Michigan owns a sizeable portion of Walgreens in the near future.

You need more than a dirt bike!
We all have things we wish we could improve on I think. If not then I'd like to meet that person and tell them they think too highly of themselves. Actually I know a few and I have told them that...

And no one needs any more in life than a 2 stroke, an endless supply of fuel and infinite miles of desert and dunes

Oooh, and you're fiesty!

And Blashphemy! Riding the 66 is probably much awesome-er than the dunes:P kidding kidding...
Idk... two strokes have a nicer power curve but having to mix can be a pain. I want a trail bike more than an MX bike though.
