I believe I know someone who got one of those thru a foreign country a few years ago.

Let me know if you need info from him.
Thanks, but no, just curious. I’m bidding on a John Deere X500 for my daughter. It has 40 hours on it, and I’m at $2500. I expect it to go up a good bit.

This is a pic of my Lifeguard stand from the far side … the pic of the Cannonsville Reservoir and Rte 10 bridge was taken from here with a little bit of Telephoto. My daughter showed me how to focus the darn smartphone camera when using telephoto (all my previous telephoto pics were blurry).

We also enjoyed some nice fires at night. This one is mostly Ash.

I guess my Color Laser printer is a real high capacity unit … it is telling me one of my color cartridges is low … only 6,000 copies remain!!!

I know the high capacity black cartridges are good for 20,000 copies.
Laser is the only way to go!!! You spend about 4x as much initially and the cost of toner vs ink pays for itself in about 200 pages.

A break in the weather. Been locked in the house due to wind for 3 days due to wind (wild) and record low temps (mid teens). Today, no wind, temps coming up into hi 30s. Even better laster in the week up into the 50s.

I got out, hauled and split one garden trailer full of rounds, lit off the pile of bark/chips that had gotten way too big. Tomoorow it is off to Lewiston, Id to pick up my MS193T. It wasn't coming up to speed or power. I had it over to one dealer (60 mile round trip) who put in plug and some minor tuning...not much change. The one in Lewiston (100 mile roundtrip) is the best I know. Family run for a couple generations.

The Wednesday back out to the Willow brush clearance. Gonna feel good behind a saw again even if it is just brush and small stems.

I know he has not been posting lately, but my Nephew MechanicMatt scored a nice Buck with the bow today in Orange County NY. He has been after this one for a few years now!

Obviously, he is a Happy Camper!

Awesome! Congrats Matt. I can't wait for gun season. I really need to buy a crossbow so I can start bow hunting.

Tried a little fowl scrounging myself. Whiffed on a trio of mallards. Had a great passing shot on a hooded merganser. He was going full speed past me at about 20 yards. I led him by about 3’ and pulled the trigger and he simultaneously dishragged. Haven’t had that many great shots this year so was nice to see.

Missed one nice grouse shortly before dusk.
