If you live far enough out in the country that 911 response is longer than a few minutes, having a firearm available makes sense for home security, as well as for meat gathering and pest control. For the NON-HOBBY shooter who intends to own only one firearm, the best choice is a simple, bolt-action repeating 22 rifle. Read more

A Simmons Street woman scared off a would-be burglar about 11 p.m. Saturday by acting like a dog, an Athens-Clarke police report said.

Driving to the South Pole on a Tractor

October 27, 2009 by  
Filed under Trail Boss News

This sounds like a bad Lifetime movie. A woman drives her tractor off the farm with some vague idea of heading to the South Pole. The world rallies around her and the thing breaks down and she drags herself the rest of the way.  The trip is representative of all our own lost goals. She then mysteriously vanishes on the way home when her plane disappears.

In what could be the oddest current expedition, Dutch actress Manon Ossevoortis is riding a tractor from the Netherlands to South Africa, and then hopping a boat to Antarctica. I’m not sure how far it is, but she has to go past the pyramids on her way, so it’s not like she’s taking the interstate. The plan is to make the South Pole in 3.5 years. She also has a blog.

Yosemite NP study: Bears prefer minivans

Filed under Trail Boss News

Images-1A study published in the October issue of The Journal of Mammalogy indicates that black bears in Yosemite National Park have a preference for minivans, breaking into those vehicles more often than any other in the park. The likely reason is because the vans are usually owned by families with children who spill food and drinks, and the smells (not always food) attract the bears. Fresno Bee.

The Lansing State Journal reported Sean Murphy on Friday stuffed 16 Madagascar hissing cockroaches into his mouth. He was trying to set a new Guinness World Records mark and said the old record was 11. Read more
