    It must have changed a lot since I was last out there. I haven't been out there in almost 15 yrs.

    The biggest thing is make sure to use fresh eggs. Bubble wrap from wherever you can buy bubble wrap from. Use a 6"x12" piece per egg to wrap them.

    It's very scary, home is home no matter the cost. Getting out of here if there was a fire is my main concern. We live at the end of a road with one way out. Not the best choice I've made.

    We got this place for a steal. Real blessing well, except summer. Insurance is extremely high and just the other day I got a letter saying they were going to come through the place and inspect it for trouble areas which means rates are going up.

    No I don't hunt them. Lots of folks have volunteered to come and hunt for me though. The turkeys are all over the place. Not unusual for flock of little poults to be in the teens for numbers. Lots of things eat them though.

    Yea if they're that busy during the week things have changed a lot since I was last out there. Yea the Fudge Factory was always a great spot to hit.

    Heck we may have rubbed shoulders in that place :lau

    The pond is fun to watch the kids catch fish. They go crazy.

    Were you there when they did the reenactment of the civil war? Black powder rifles and canons

    Either that or you've probably bumped into family of mine [​IMG] Actually never made it there for the civil war reenactment.
