Wow Dave, the fun never ends!! You may get tired of all the compliments. Its pretty clear you arent the sort to need attention but I can help myself!! Man, you are sooo talented!! Fer real, fer real!! Looks like the the dino track might could be flipping you the bird for peeing all over it!!

I never figured Lonny to be ANY kind of handsome!! Hard to tell by just reading posts. Heck, I've met Leonard in person and never expected he would have looked just like James Dean as a youngster!!

Yes, Danny, there are several movie stars I am continually mistaken for. It's embarrassing, sometimes!

Hey Dave, the last time I went down a "trail" like in this photo, half of my engine mounts broke!

Leonard, breaking motor mounts is mostly a thing of the past. I broke them a couple times, way back in the day. But frames are a lot more rigid these days, and suspensions are a lot more flexible, far less likely to twist things up to the point of breaking off mounts.

I replaced them on my Jeep recently, just on GP. But they were actually in surprisingly good shape. I saved the old ones. Have worn out two transmission mounts on it though.

The new stuff that went in a couple weeks ago.

If you say so? I forgot to mention that I also busted the fan cowling on the radiator. I replaced with steel motor mounts and stayed the hell out of those tight places. You just have to ask yourself; do I really want to go there?

I've been down some awesome creek beds where I needed somebody walking in front and guiding me. And, always in the back of my mind I keep saying "won't I ever learn?"

I look at it like this: if it takes away from hunting, it's probably not worth it. Now, in your case, you have a different objective. Oh! And, I keep forgetting! Do you bring the gear and give in to temptation and make a stand, now and then, in that back country? It all looks very prime, even a hand call, perched on a rock, gun or no gun? Come on, admit it! You done it.

Good hunting. El Bee

Pics are awesome. You need to remove your front plate, snap a few and make a small fortune selling them to Jeep for advertising. I've never seen a picture that screams "Jeep Tough" quite like yours.

Has anyone mentioned about that red dye used to paint on the rocks? I'm very curious. Whatever they use, everybody uses the same stuff, apparently? And that is all the more curious. I mean, they didn't have TV. So hundreds of miles away, group A is showing group B & C how to gather the berries and mix in a little catalyst to just the right consistency. I'm saying that it was a technology of the times and I think it's interesting that something like that would get passed across town, so to speak.

However, it has been established that those people did network. They had contact and there was trade. I am very curious about those various cultures. What it was like. And, it sure as hell wasn't easy!

Imagine this. You need a new stone war axe. So you find the perfect rock and imbed it just right in the Vee of a hardwood tree and wait a few years until the branches grow around and it's wedged in there tight, no messing with twisted vines to hold it in place. Clever, and a trick that was passed around. Anyway, I think that stuff is interesting. How do you make a two piece arrow, with superior flight characteristics? Usually consisting of a lightweight reed for the front part. Whoever would have thought of that, and pass it on. Just finding tubers that they can suck the moisture out of. Did every tribe, every band have to reinvent the wheel? That also is interesting, in that Amerinds possessed a well developed culture, were very into decorations. Some primitive people had all they could do to keep from starving, but our Indians had the spare time to indulge in what you might consider frivolous ornaments and stuff to improve their appearance, like plucking stray facial hairs with two clamshells as tweezers. They were all into looking good so there was obviously an abundance.

Good hunting. El Bee

I had a sociology professor in college who lived in Madagascar with the Kung Bushmen for a year. Totally primitive indigenous people. He impressed upon us that we should consider technology not so much a matter of microcircuits and computers, but rather, discovering and maximizing the resources available to you in your environment. For example, the bushmen used two-part arrows similar to what Leonard describes above. The back portion was a hollow reed and the front portion was an integrated shaft and arrowhead. What was remarkable about these arrows is that the bushmen would locate a very hard to find plant and mark its location for later use. The roots of that plant, when processed using a method they devised, produced a toxin that was overwhelmingly potent.The arrowhead tip would be dipped in the poison and then the arrow would be used to take game. A single arrow was enough to bring down an adult giraffe. They would get a shot into the target, the hollow shaft would fall away and the hunters would follow and track the giraffe until the neurotoxin spread through its body and it went down, at which time they would swarm over it and process the meat.

Each time I see those shards of pottery in the pics above, I'm reminded of something my uncle taught me. He was born and raised near Cortez, Colorado and he and his brothers bought a mile-long canyon four miles north of the backside of Mesa Verde. Down the canyon, a couple hundred yards from his property line there can be found another much smaller Anasazi encampment. On the top rim of their ground, if you look closely, you can see circular arrangements of stones embedded in the soil. Anthropologists have been there and they were told that those circles are the foundations of structures built by a people that were ~800 years prior to the Anasazi. When I was little, we were allowed to pick up arrowheads and pottery. When I took my wife and kids there 15 years ago, the family had changed to forbidding anything from being removed. But, my daughter Tabor found one particular piece that is extremely unusual and considered to be a real find, so she was allowed to keep it. This pottery was produced using a secret method of firing that, until about ten years ago, had never been replicated using modern technology or science, and people had tried forever. The pieces were a light eggshell colored clay, about 3/16-inch thick. Looking at the edge of the piece, you would see a black line sandwiched between the inner and outer white surfaces. Apparently, this is a very rare form of pottery that is specific to this particular culture, making the pottery very strong. Somehow, they figured this out on their own. Passed it along for generations, and the method died with their culture.

How did those bushmen discover that they could process the root from that one specific plant and produce a chemical that fed them and provided them with food, hides, sinew? And who was the guy that first discovered that cow's milk was good? I mean, did some caveman get drunk on fermented fruit with his caveman buddies and suck a cow's teat on a dare?

Makes you wonder.

Something I find interesting about our native Americans. Those anthropologists have determined by examining knife marks on human bones and also cracking those human bones open to get at the nourishing marrow, that many of them were canibals. Well this little detail doesn’t set to well with the descendants among us today. Their Public Relations Department prefer being thought of as The Noble Redman, rather than primitive savages.

Good hunting. El Bee 🐝

PS one of the above photos is of a can of Log Cabin Syrup. I hope I’m not the only one that recognized it.
