    As our climate shifts, and the range of insects shift, the range of the animals that eat them will too, eventually. Sprawl pushes out the real effective rodent killers, so ultimately unless our fringe-city development trends shift dramatically we will only see more tick, and more lyme.

This longstanding tradition teaches kids that animals are ultimately food and lumberjacks are to be feared and respected for the badasses that they are. So continues life well north of Portland in the Great State of Maine. Good luck joining the fun Bottleman!

    Did a study on Didelphus Virginiana (Opossum) while at UVM in 1982. By that point, they were well established in southern Vermont (up to about Springfield) although both of my parents swear they were in the Barre area in the early 50s. To be honest I haven't seen one in a long time and I spend a lot of time in the woods in southern Vermont.

    I see them occasionally in my neighborhood. This girl got ahold of one on a dusk walk a few years ago, watched her shake it in to multiple pieces...it was like watching a bear make a kill! Ugly mfers but if they eat the ticks I'm all for them. Now skunks, not so much. Sammy has been sprayed at least 10x in her 11yrs but at least 4 of them didn't live to spray again. The TN hound in her loves to kill wildlife but thankfully, she's never crossed a porcupine.

    Had a chance to read that tick article last night and it was pretty sad. What a horrible way to die, those tick veils sound disgusting. Really amazing how quickly the moose have been killed off around here, used to see them and or sign of them on a regular basis, now it is rare to see any tracks or scat. Too bad they couldn't be treated somehow like the rabies bait drops, but I realize the area to treat is the first barrier too high for this to work.
    The Opossum are like some sort of disgusting mutant rat, I hope I don't see them around my door.


    Realized yesterday the homeowner and kitchen designer had changed the layout, which requires prep changes, without telling me. So I said fuck it and went skiing.

    It was a great afternoon to be out in the forest. Skied a new aspect of around 800' on 1" of powder on a thin zipper crust over 6" of sand topping the frozen base. South facing was pasty and manked out.

    Might as well start here

    Why must they roux-thicken every bowl of gruel they turn out? A bisque is rice thickened originally according to Gastronomique, then came to mean fish or game based puree. This is just some bullshit snot with chunks. Gnarly.

    Sun feels amazing today. Ready for cutting MTB trail. 2 major projects left before the vision is built out. Maybe finish this year. Hoping for a couple more good dust-ups before then but the season is changing. Small hawks back early, as well as pileated woodpeckers. Riding in April this year I think.

    Funny little critters. Caught one in the barnyard last year. Released it a mile down the road. The only NA marsupial species I believe.

    Did you try to pet before the release?
    You missed out the bonding moment.

    A bit of personal chaos mixed in with some good skiing in the last 48 hrs... skied the Notch on Friday, rode some great pow and one chute that was a little too narrow for my amateur snowboard skills. Dropped my phone on that one.

    Total kerfuffle getting that one replaced, end up phoneless today, supposed to meet a friend at Pinkham Notch, we both miss each other, each tour up solo, he meets our other pair of friends while I had a solo day hiking Hillmans, walking to Left Gully cuz the snow sucked, almost leaving after Left Gully cuz that snow was kinda shit, then rebating with some beautiful pow off the snowfields and a skills-building finishing run down Lobster Claw in some steep, rippable, sun-softened fresh.

    Drive two hours back to VT to find my tenants in Maine ran out of oil and have been trying to get in touch with me all day. You win some, you lose some (losses that you caused yourself), right?

    Beautiful day for photos though, damn. Agiocochook/Mt. Washington put on a show today; hard to believe this is East Coast skiing!
