Cold- I fill a Rubbermaid tote with cold water and that seems to work pretty good. The tote will forever have paint around the water level and some sinks after you brush the excess away, so don't use one that the Mrs. stores nice things in! Guess you could clean it off it you cared to. Other than that its pretty mess free. I hang mine after to help the water drain and give it a good shake every so often for the same reason. Don't freak out if it doesn't work the way you hoped either, you can always repaint and redip...

The daughter & I got out today for some fishing (had 1 bite is all), a little hike & generally just did a bit of exploring. What a beautiful day !! On the way home we spotted a black bear sow with two itty bitty cubs. They were about a 1/4 mile away in a ravine. Mom was feasting on grass & the little ones were just playing around. What a hoot.....very cool to see !! We watched them for roughly 40 minutes. We both tried taking some pics, but the smartphones just wouldn't pick them up that far away. Oh well, great day spent in the outdoors !!

Sweet pics Spitz. Nice to get out in the sun and nature. Still no shrooms here Mike... if the sun would ever f-Ing shine that would help. Lots of moisture just no warmth! Don't care,... going bear/ shed hunting with the oldest tomorrow, f-Ing rain or shine... got my honey dos done enough! Please be nice out, please!!

sad that I'm going to have to get a permit for the old sundolphin flathead sunrise weekend at the cabin nice to get away. from Zoo town.
Spitz think that I could have cooled down in one of those pools today too hot for me.

Mmmmm cocktails! Nice weekend retreat G! Now that's livin  @)....

Here's a rundown of this last weekend/week for my crew...

Bear Hunting went...


Shed hunting not as crappy...

... but no freshies that the tree rats hadn't found first!

At least we got out! and it didn't f-Ing rain!!


Still no Morels, but we did find...
another egg! (and maybe had a samsqwatch sighting)

and a real nice Matsutake mushroom...

Crazy taste to these shrooms... apparently worth a lot in Japan  :-\

@ G fish - Great pics.....The Flathead sunrise is just beautiful.....Those pools would have cooled ya down for sure.....Daughter waded out in that lake past her waist & she was absolutely freezing after she got out.....She had to go warm up in the truck.

@ Kyle - Looks like the outdoors is treating you well.....Sheds & shrooms.....Can't beat that.....It sure is nice to just get out after the long winter.....Shake the cabin fever off & enjoy some nicer weather.....Bring on summer !!

I got off work & loaded up the 5th-wheel for the first camping trip of the year. Headed out bright n' early in the morning & plan on staying out for 6 nights. Looks like the weather is actually going to be favorable too. I'm feeling the need for speed & I'm so looking forward to racking up some miles in the Maverick as I haven't driven it in almost 8 months. I should have quite a few pics to share come next Thursday. Until then, everyone stay safe & enjoy the holiday weekend !!

G fish nice photos I especially like the one with clouds refelecting off of lake.
BackCountry Kyle since I'm not a hunter curious why your state and a few others have a spring bear hunting season does it not cause a few cubs to be orphaned when their mothers get killed. Also what do you do with all the shed antlers ? To you and all the other mushroom gatherers be careful as I'm sure you know some varieties are highly poisonous and look similar to nonpoisonous types.

 Thank you for taking the time to post your photos gentlemen.  SpitzoMT have a good trip.
Steve
