    Anyone know how to skin a raccoon?

    Damn.. Wish Ida known about the possible dangers of consuming raccoon meat... A few years ago a raccoon was messing around in my baby food forest and my puppers took it down with the quickness but didn't put it all the way out. I finished the deed with a 1800's Era, double headed axe that...

    bike trip through florida next month

    I'd be down to hang if your going down the coast. I'm in Ormond beach /Holly Hill. I might even ride a ways south with you if work isn't to crazy by that time. I'm not sure about the Jacksonville to St Augustine leg but from St Augustine to Ormond (on Hwy 1) they recently put in a sidewalk...

    A story about a band.

    Hahah.. Yeah. That place was not unlike a parallel universe compared to the rest of the world. We weren't so much rivals as we were the best skaters of our respective towns. So when we finally met we had to have an epic game of skate. Hahah. But the high school for the whole county was...

    Haha.. I shoulda just stuck with the 90s but those other decades were pretty great too I've heard.. For California. I grew up in the 90s too.. But where I lived didn't have anything but cornfields and angry rednecks.. The only other punks lived in other towns.. There was about 6 of us in the...

    Creating a new hobby of storytelling

    Nice. I've always wanted to write a futuristic, dystopian, freight tale of fiction.. Ala Mad Max style. But I'm definitely no writer. I'll have to give this a listen when I get the time.

    Awesome pictures and story. The "sunset at the Catchout" picture is especially bad ass. That ride up the Hudson is definitely one of the prettiest river runs on the east coast. My first time rolling into Selkirk had us pulled way up into receiving. Walked a few miles towards Steward's and...

    Redding CA to Albany OR

    In my experience (years ago..but I doubt its changed) hitchhiking out of Redding is fairly tough. Also in California it's illegal to walk or be on the highway so it makes it harder. My advice would be to hit the exit at the far north end of town and have a sign saying Oregon. I would turn...
