...for the elusive B.r.b.
in no particular order





















I caught 2 Steatoda grossa, one with egg sack about to pop in the smokehouse. pix of those will be taken in captivity when established. the Rivi was given to me when I was 8, it's still in the name of the first owner and I'm about to put it up for sale. technically, it's a survivor car which adds to the collector value over the $6100 book value. it's been sitting up at what is technically my mom's property that her ex has lived on and has a 10% interest on the deed for - he's a crazy polish immigrant so the thing I'm standing on...makes no sense, but the smoke house does because when we lived up at carter lake and had pigs we made our own traditional polish sausage with one of those.

FIN!

haha, I've never taken 'shrooms' so I wouldn't know if they were the good kind or bad kind if a reputable dealer set them in front of me.

Those are not correct!! I was only teazing but the one time I did find the correct ones I was walking amongst the cow patties(and cows) on the banks of Eaglenest Lake there in Colorado,but I was with my dad so I just kept on walking.When we left all the cows ganged up around our car and started licking the windows and side mirrors after following me like I was their king LOL. Shocked scratch Shocked

Sweet pics, Ras! Mushrooms are always good photography subjects.

. . . We have lots of "cow pat" shrooms out here in the NW -- I'm surprised cattle people don't put up "NO HIPPIES" signs on their property. Rolling Eyes

if I lived in a hippie ridden area and I had a farm with cows I would totally put up a sign that said "no hippies!"

it is mined for it's phosphorus content, which is used mainly in the production of fertilizers but also gunpowder. collecting such a small sample from such an isolated location would probably do more damage to the already trashed property it's on than it's worth.

people who make fertilizer and don't care about the ecological impact that comes with "mining" it

yeah, I don't know why any Rivi would choose such a biota though. at 2.5 tons I don't know how to recover it because of where it's sitting and how it's impassable by anything that can pull it down
