  1. Unit 8R has a good method for sure. Like fasteddie mentioned if you go the heat tape method lay it flat along the line. Secure it to the pipe with electrical tape, and possibly some pipe insulation Everbilt 3/4 in. x 6 ft. Foam Semi-Slit Polyethylene Pipe Insulation-ORP07812 - The Home Depot A little to short heat tape is ok but to long is not good. Keep it plugged in on cold nights/days especially if it is windy. Having it on a switched outlet would save plugging it in each time and lengthen the life of the heat tape.
  2. Got about 1.8 miles on the x-country skis today. Don't down hill.
  3. Follow-up from yesterday. Skied it today and my field looks like a war zone compared to the cornfield stubble field which is hardly touched. There are actually a couple of paths they have made while walking through the corn stubble to get to the ex-soybean field. Almost looks like every deer within 5 miles is showing up here. Fist pic is my field for reference:
  4. We have a few that have dropped. I have also seen a couple of 1/2 racks but I have also seen four different bucks this week still carrying both sides. Saw a good size four point tonight just before dark.
  5. Not saying it will be the case in Albany but some family members attended the one in Hamburg last week and they said the prices were WAY out of sight. In some cases, double what they could be ordered online for. I think they said they paid $175 for a thousand rifle primers. There wasn't any buys but they had stuff for sale if one wanted to pay the price.
  6. I am no plot guy, farmer, or even a gardener. All I know is the guy that works my field planted soybeans this year for the first time. They are not an annual but have kept the deer here. Deer have been in them all summer. Once they were picked they kept coming back for the residue. One night last week I counted 32 deer out there at once and there are least at least 8 or 10 out there every night. Looking at the tracks there looks like there has been at least a million deer out there since the snow fall this past weekend. The field behind mine was corn and all that is remaining is the stubble. They usually hit that pretty good also. Twice this week I have also watched 9 long beards digging to get down the remains. I hope to strap on the cross-country skis tomorrow to investigate but based on what I have seen this year; soybeans seem to be the draw.

  12. Larry...Easy way to tell real time. Get the nys 511 app. They have live cameras you can view on most major roads and highways. You can check road conditions just about anywhere in the state from your living room. Just tap any camera symbol and it will be live when you hit the play icon. I watched a guy this morning in Parish get stuck at a gas station hauling a trailer. Pretty neat app.
  13. I had a friend move to Tennessee when he retired because his wife's family was from there. He decided to start a little lawn mowing venture to keep busy and earn some extra cash. After a month or so we chatted and told me he gets on the mower on the trailer and doesn't get back off the mower until it is back on the trailer. He was scared to death of snakes and there were plenty of them. He said if he ran out of gas or broke down, he would call somebody to come get him because he was not getting off that mower in the grass. Needless to say, he didn't mow lawns for very long.
