Marshal and I had a conference call today where we outlined a really, really cool series of DRTV videos focusing on the AR platform. I think we're going to be able to make it happen in 2014...fingers crossed! I'm definitely going to take a carbine class with the DoubleStar C3 Constant Carry Carbine. So very many things to do...
German town building giant rake in attempt to catch bite-happy snapping turtle
After hunting dogs, an electric fence and traps couldn’t get the job done, a German town looking to remove a snapping turtle from a lake has asked a blacksmith to create a giant rake to fish out the sharp-beaked reptile.
Giant snapping turtles! Could this be worse that the plague of cohones-nipping piraña spreading across the world??? A lowly blacksmith, hammer in hand, is all that stands between Germany and a nasty nip on the butt. What the heck...couldn't they just shoot it? I mean, they'd need Congressional approval and stuff, promise to only fire one shot, between 4:47PM and 6:02PM, then assure the public that the sharpshooters will miss. But a giant rake? Reminds me of George Clooney.
I'm as ready as I'm going to get for the Dark Continent. I've been working with a DeLorme inReach SE sat communicator in the hopes of being able to Twitter or post to FaceBook from Africa. So far, I've been able to send texts. Got a few battery packs and a solar charger, so we'll see.
