    Greetings friends.
    Happy Friday! I hope y'all had a great week.
    For me the week has gone really well and flown by. We are starting to get busy at work and spring is in the air. Its amazing how much better peoples moods are this week here with some sunshine and warmer temperatures. With the days getting longer it gives some hope that summer will find its way back around and warm days are on the way!

    @pop_rocks. There is something really comforting about putting on a nice hoodie and getting out in the crisp air. Towards the end of summer here we always get that first cool day and it feels great. The summer heat gets stagnant and the cool temps give us a taste of fall. I love living in a place with 4 distinct seasons because too much of the same weather can get boring. I just wish sometimes winter was a little shorter. I wouldn't mind a few days in the 70's like you are having. We can get some nice days here in March so maybe I'm not far off from that.
    A camping trip sounds like a great time. I know you guys had lots of fun last time you went to the mountains. I suppose the Observatory is still closed. Whatever you decide to do I'm sure you'll make the most of it!
    I strapped into the board in my living room but I have to get out on the hill and make some cuts with it before I really start adjusting the straps and finding a comfortable setting. It looks like Sunday will be the day for that.
    My bro brought back a couple of different strains of flower and got me 2 carts of oil. One of the types of flower is a wedding cake cross and I forget the other. They are both tasty and potent. I prefer flower but I like the carts for keeping a low profile in a bar or somewhere its too windy to use a lighter on a bowl or anywhere else I need to be discrete.
    Do you have anything exciting planned for the weekend?

    @star_crash. Pop is right that's a beautiful dog. He is totally prepared for the weather and looks warm and sleepy even when crusted with snow. Its pretty amazing how an animal can have a coat that can keep them warm in such cold and also make it work during summer when its warm. It's nice to see you posting and I hope all is well with you!

    I'm having a great week so far and I hope you are as well!
    Its been in the mid 30's to about 40 here all week and we've been getting some sun too. We are starting to get some nice melting but temps get back below freezing during the night and things get icy until it warms up again the next day. I would bet that thirty something last night felt pretty chilly to y'all but a little crisp air once in a while must also be a nice change.
    I got the board and boots now I just need to test them out. Im going to stay local for this next ride, either Saturday or Sunday to make sure all my equipment is working well. If all goes well this weekend I'm looking at a trip up north or to the upper Peninsula of Michigan in a couple of weeks. The hills are bigger up there and the lake effect snow off of lake superior is going to be deeper than around here. We are starting to get a bit late in the season so I doubt ill be taking a trip out west to ride this year.
    I also want to get back on the disc golf course this weekend too!
    My bro was up in the UP of Michigan snowmobiling and is bringing back some treats from the dispensary. Michigan seems to have a good recreation law and some really good product in the dispensaries. I love my buds but some variety is always a good thing.
    I hope your week finishes off strong and you have a great weekend on tap!

    /f'yeah to good people!
    the snow golf scene sounds fun as long as you are pretty good
    /i bet you can find a lot of discs once the now melts
    thats funny because i was going to ask you about if you had snow shoes to traverse the banks
    even one of those packs of spam from costco and some beans in a can would be good place to start for your survival rations
    you would eat the stuff in the fridge/ freezer first and with a few canned goods you would be good to go for at least a week
    you are so right about how you dont have to worry about water as much
    with plenty of fresh snow and stuff i bet you would have plenty of water to drink and even clean things
    i know what you mean about getting introspective and just grooving
    im looking forward to taking another balloon ride soon
    you have a great day too buddy! the week is flying by and i cant wait for the weekend
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    Thank you for the kind words. Your right there are some great people here on icmag! Social media and internet forums often bring out the worst in people but we are here for a common goal and that seems to help eliminate a lot of the argumentative shit I see in other places on the net.
    Nothing beats a game of disc on a beautiful 75 degree day but if you want to keep playing year around in a lot of places you have to play in all different conditions. I was using that pink disc on Sunday because its so easy to see it against the white snow background. I bet your right that there are quite a few discs buried under the snow and when it finally melts some people are going to have some new plastic in their bags. Fall is another great time to find discs out on the course. During summer the grass and brush are so thick that plenty of discs get lost and when that dies off in the fall you can find a bunch. I found 4 discs in one round a couple of falls ago.
    I don't have snowshoes because we don't usually have enough snow on the ground to need them here. If this keeps up I might have to get a set.
    Spam and beans would make a great meal during a disaster or in the aftermath of one. I use to go a a Hawaiian bar in San Francisco that had a bunch of spam based dishes on the menu.
    Your right the week is flying by and I'm really looking forward to getting on the snowboard this weekend.

    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    That basket is at least 2-1\2 feet and probably 3 feet off the ground. As you saw it was all packed down around where people were walking but right up to the bottom where no one had stepped. There was a nice packed down path between the tee and the baskets and if you stayed in the fairway it was pretty good. If you made a wild throw you had to post hole through the deep stuff and would have been wishing for snow shoes. I only went I to the deep snow a couple of times and had a bunch of birdies. I felt really good about how well I shot.
    Im sure your right about winter being far from over, especially here. We get plenty of cold weather and snow in March and even April. We even ha a pretty big snowstorm in May here when I was a teenager. But I think we are getting g to the point where we are probably not looking at the bitter sub zero temps. I can deal with coll.weather and as much snow as we can get but the arctic blasts are what make me miserable.
    I agree that canned and dry foods are what you want if shit were to hit the fan. In the winter those of us that live up here could probably keep fresh food cold for a while but not indefinitely. People forget that when the power goes down so does your fridge and freezer. We can also be a little more careless about keeping water up here because we have so much fresh water in all the lakes here.
    Im glad you two had a great time over the weekend. I always use to get a case of the giggles when I was younger and took a voyage but these days I'm more introverted and less expressive. I get to to my music and if there is a bonfire I can stare at the flames for hours. You are certainly good people and good things are happening for you! I hope your having a great day buddy!

    its hard to complain about the weather here in socal and ive been putting in some time in the garden to get hgns ready for the spring
    no matter where you live you still need to be prepared, you never know when the power will go out or things get crazy
    even in socal we have natural disasters to worry about
    /mostly earth quake, fire but there could be other problems no on anticipates
    i was talking to a friend last night about this very same thign and he was pitifully unprepared
    he had some dry good and a few cans of things, but no water or other essentials
    the funny thing was he said, well ill just stock up when the time comes...
    WRONG!
    /you and the other ten thousand ass holes will all be cramming the stores and anyplace else hoping to get whatever is left; being prepared isnt somethign you wait for the lastr minute to run out and do
    the funny thing is one of out friend made a good case for tsunami here in so cal; something no one is anticipating
    thats why they are problems, people just arent prepared to take care of themselves and then complain when the gov is overwhelmed by an emergency situation
    a few simple things kept around the house can amek all the difference
    this dosent even include weed and drank (for those of us who like to imbide)
    /ill get off my soap box now brother, thanks for letting me vent
    cant wait for our adventure and its all systems go! we are heading out later today and i am excited about the haul
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    Happy Monday!
    My weekend was nice! I found and purchased a nice used snowboard and bindings. I also got some really nice snowboard boots. They seem like they are going to be a lot more comfortable than the ones I used a few weeks ago and I'm hoping that means more riding for me. I didn't get a chance to test the equipment out yet but next weekend I will for sure!
    How was your weekend?
    I hope you had a great adventure! Im looking forward to hearing what you did and how it went. Your doing a great job of keeping us in suspense brother!
    Your so right about it being important to be prepared. Its easy to take for granted that we have a wall mart available 24 hours a day for anything we need. As you mentioned if you wait until a disaster strikes you will be too late to get stocked up and you will suffer. We saw how quickly the toilet paper ran out last spring when this covid panic hit. I think it was Badfishy that mentioned how there is always a screen like that at stores in Florida when there is a hurricane predicted. And your so right that water should be at the top of the list. You make a great point about people being irresponsible and expecting the government to bail them out when there is trouble. As we know that's not a good plan just look at the track record.
    Just as predicted the heat wave is here brother. Its in the 30's outside and feels great after the last few weeks of bitter cold. It looks like we are going to have some nice melting temps this week and not too soon. My gutters and roof have a shitload of ice and snow in them.
    With the warm weather yesterday I made sure to get out for a game of disc golf. I had a great time and played better than I have thought I would have given the long layoff. The snow cover on the ground here comes all the way up to the bottom of the basket. I don't think I've seen this much snow on the ground here since I was a kid. Here's a pic of how deep it was at the course yesterday.

    but you can never be too prepared
    let me know if oyu ever find the secret to a good king cake and i hope you get baby with every bite!
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    Happy Friday!
    I can tell your excited for the weekends adventure. Have a great time and don't do anything I wouldn't do LOL.
    Im quite envious of your weather, I just looked at your forecast and it looks so nice. Sunny and 70's is just about perfect.
    Its a good idea to have a few weeks worth of supplies on hand. As we have seen when Covid hit the stores can get emptied in a hurry and if you don't have supplies your out of luck. There are a ton of unknown things that can happen to cut supplies short and it happens usually without warning. Good camping supplies would be just the right things to have if there was a power grid problem. Being able to cook your food and stay warm are not underrated. Your absolutely right that you can't be too prepared.
    Have a great weekend brother!
