Mar 22 will be flying to Texas for a week to visit with Swamp. Was a spur of the moment thing. I know that his trapping season will be over with but am looking forward to see where he traps and some of his trapping buddies. Should be some good stories and info. So now I'm trying to figure out a dress code for there. Cowboy look or confused Canadian tourist look?

I think with the temp difference the nudity look will work.
Have a blast and remember the dang pics.

That's really cool Wolf! Enjoy you're trip. Like TT said, end of March in Texas will be much warmer than July in northern Ontario.

We are all getting ready for Wolf's down south visit. Nothing like a Canuke in east Texas! I think Festus has plans to take Wolf on a fishing trip...I will tag along for a photo op.

Well it is very near showtime for Wolf to make it down South! I hope he is ready for some scenery without any snow.

No turning back for Wolf now, he just sent a text telling me he was boarding his plane for his flight to Texas! We have a fishing trip lined up for tomorrow with Festus.

Wolf was fascinated with the homes on stilts along the Gulf Coast. I told him it was due to the heavy snows and he seem to think maybe it was because of the Texas BS.

After a good meal of fried crappie Wolf and I headed down to Camp Winky

We then returned to my house and the very sunburned Wolf had a Red Cup & Rum

We took a day off to let Wolf rest up after all the traveling, then on Friday we headed down to Camp Winky for a couple of days. First stop was the shooting range to do some pistol shooting.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

After shooting the .38, .380, .40, .45,.22, 410 several times we went on down to the camp.

Festus came in a little later with his Mule and we went for a ride about to show Wolf some of our trapping situations.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Cecil Gore called and said he was at the camp so we came back so he and Wolf could talk about some questions he had about putting up furs


Image

Image

Image

Image


Cecil went for a ride with us, then had to head home. Festus stayed for awhile and we got our camp fire started for the evening.


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Rob checked out Camp Winky before he decided to sleep there or in my truck.


Image

Image

Time to use the fire and cook some boudain for supper.

Image

Image

Image

Saturday morning and time to get up and around. Another ride about today before heading home.

We chilled out on Monday, Wolf was soaking up the sunshine.

Image

Image

Then Tuesday when all good things come to an end and Wolf has to catch his flight back home. Off to the airport. What a great visit we had with him!

Image

Image

Image

Image

I think Wolf will agree that he has some good friends down this way and that he learned a little more about what our trapping grounds look like. He got to try crawfish (not crayfish), fried alligator, hominy grits, hush puppies and strong coffee. He realized quickly that we have many things growing down here that will stick or scratch you. :shock: He became a master fire starter using lighter pine as kindling. He saw that most folks around here are pistol friendly and like their guns. He saw alligator, feral hog, snakes, lizards and bugs of all sorts. I am not sure he'll ever return but I'd guess if he does he'll wear long pants and long sleeved shirts while in the woods! :roll: :lol:

Wolf will have to share his experience at a drive thru liquor store when he gets his computer back online. He may even have a picture or two. Funny how some things are common in one area and not in others.

Swamp- A well documented adventure as usual. Thanks for sharing!!!

I'm out in the land of the fruits and nuts this week. I finally figured out how to do about a 2-block in any direction jaunt without getting turned around so I could get back to my hotel. I'd love to walk these streets with trappintime and doc and listen to the color commentary they'd be saying. I think specific panhandlers have specific areas they work. I haven't seen any human **** on the sidewalk yet such as I did during my last trip to this fine metropolis but I have 2+ days left. A whole different world than my bland suburbia .....
