    I always heard 50 miles a week, but who really knows. It's all about climatology and when the weather cooperates lol. Latest map i have seen.

    Agreed. Mine came with an F-150 to haul it around with.

    We got over 3" of wet snow yesterday. The ground was nowhere near frozen solid, though. If temperatures increase as predicted and we continue to get steady moisture, Northern Illinois should be in pretty good shape for this spring.
    I sharpened my knife and put fresh batteries in the thermometer today. Time will be made to whittle on my new shroomin' stick(cut from my favorite indicator tree)whilst the dawg and i listen to the Cubs on the radio this evening. Spring rocks.

    Tick, tock...
