    No Shave November - I wanna look like a Pirate Argh Matey

    For the first time in my life I'm not gonna shave. Found out there was this Cancer Awareness No Shave November thing. Mrs. Admiral is pretty darn sure my beard will be pretty gray. I've never gone more than 3-4 days without shaving before.

    P.S. I still can't go more than a month without a haircut. Must be a military thing. I tried growing it out but can't stand hair touching my ears.

    Chicken Pot Pie. A few picture grabs from a recent ride. I'm not liking this winter thing just so you know!

    Little bear tracks (I kept the bike engine running just in case).

    Ugh!

    Dodging animals in the woods. It's says it's a Deere don't-cha-know!

    That is all. Carry on.

    Pictures of the beard or it didn't happen.

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Gonna need a "Before" (which is now/today) and "After" photo on Nov. 30th.

    Week-By-Week is optional.

    I have a few friends that do that as well. For myself after 7 to 10 days I get too itchy and can't take it anymore.
    Sometimes though I'll leave the mustache which my wife hates. Says I look like Ron Burgundy. I like Ron Burgundy, HaHa.

    OK – so let’s get this straight …..

    Bear: Recognisable by the big pointy teeth, claws, makes a good coat
    Mountain Lion: Recognisable by the big pointy teeth, claws, makes a good coat
    Timber Wolf: Recognisable by the big pointy teeth, claws, makes a good coat

    Seems to me that anything you can consider a “walking coat” over there comes with its own defensive “complications”

    None of the above are likely to attack a human of course, unless you’re carrying a tape measure.
    Or in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    Or if the critter in question is in a bad mood.
    Or hungry.
    Or just for shits and giggles.

    There are defensive measures you can take of course, like leaving a TW ticking over nearby, I’m sure that will have them crapping themselves. Even better if the TW in question happens to be pink, with the rider giving them “that stare”. Even Grizzlies know better than to risk “The throat punch”.

    You could always try growing a beard, but that might make them jealous. Best not to upset them really.

    21217d1440295461-looking-more-top-speed-bear7.jpg

    But I’m sure the real estate agent pointed all this out to you when you looked over the property.

    Personally, I applaud your decision to live in the woods with so many deadly hungry violent critters, it shows guts. Bit like riding a TW with a “Death Wing” still on the front. Reminds me of Fred in many ways, you two should swap notes. Fred can explain how to set up a plastic cow with glowing eyes on your driveway, which is so unconvincing you just know the critters strolling past are thinking “Meh”. Then there’s the cunning way he cooks “aromatically enticing” foods at night, just to test how bear proof his screen door is while grabbing a few more pics.

    I think that Fred’s attitude is about right. He takes the piss out of them by taking numerous pictures and going for a ride with nothing more than a grin and a couple of cats for an escort, while they take the piss out of him by using the driveway as a thoroughfare, leaving numerous pawprints in their wake, and the occasional pile of poo. Come to think of it, it might be time to get Rosco some company, a pair of Maine Coons should do it (big buggers).

    We have much bigger things to worry about on Anglesey – Cows. You might well laugh, but try coming round a blind bend to be confronted by the “Cruiser Class” rear end of one of those things. Now you know why I always wear a full face helmet …….

    Bwahaha. Too Funny. Love it. Fred takes more than pictures, he drinks "Bear Piss". He showed ejfranz and myself on the Sierra Mtn. ride. Thought he was joking but I tried a swig of the stuff and oh boy howdy. To say it was a bit tart is an understatement.

    I'm not an animal trackologist but to be fair to you, you can't tell the size of the print from the picture. You're probably correct but if it's a Mountain Lion it was a small or young Mtn. Lion. These tracks are much smaller than the Mtn. Lion tracks I've seen before.

    Do Bobcat tracks look about the same? I suppose either young Mtn. Lion or another relative. In any case, no matter what the tracks are refer to Purples description above:
