What would yall do in this situation? - BFIV
About 3 weeks ago, Mama BFIV totaled her 2001 Subaru LL Bean Limited Edition Outback when she swerved to miss a deer, jumped the curb and scraped the guardrail. Busted the two front tires, grubbed off the muffler, and the right side of her car looks like Richard Petty's old Plymouth after the Darli...

Just lost another dear friend... - BFIV
My dear friend and picking buddy, Ernie Craft, passed away today in South Carolina. Ernie really loved to cane pole fish out of one of those South Carolina pirouges(spelling?). He died from the effects of being sprayed with Agent Orange in Vietnam and our government and the Veterans Administration...

Short ginseng video from local TV station... - BFIV
It's ginseng season here and it's nothing like that program on Discovery Channel about ginseng hunters. This week two local guys from Lee County, Virginia dug up what could be the oldest ginseng root ever found in the U.S. It was 200 years old and weighed about 11 ounces. If I can find a non-faceb...

Manual or automatic tranny in a 4WD? - BFIV
Since the manual transmission seems to be going the way of the dinosaur, I was wondering which transmission most of yall prefer. My old CJ5 had an 8 speed manual and so does my old workhorse Ram 1500. I prefer a manual transmission for off road and going up these mountain trails, and driving in sn...

Anybody here ever raise guineas? - BFIV
Would like to have a few roaming around the place, but I don't know if they'll stay off the porches and decks. Free range chickens want to roost on the porch and crap everywhere. If guineas will stay out in the yard and fields and stay off the porch, I'd like to get some. They're great for tick c...

"Submarine"...the huge great white shark - BFIV
Any of yall watching this program on The Discovery Channel about that 36 foot long great white shark off Capetown, South Africa? Been eating people for decades. Very interesting, but terrifying, too. They've even got camera footage of it attacking and underwater video. Another reason not to go i...

automotive question... - BFIV
Gotta replace the throttle position sensor on Mama BFIV's Outback tomorrow. If I position the replacement TPS in the same exact position as the original, is it still necessary to adjust the new TPS with the voltage meter? I don't have a volt meter, but I could borrow one, I guess. TIA!...

Here's to ya, Smack! - BFIV
While looking at the national weather map, I saw a little community with the name of Smackover, Arkansas. I guess it speaks to the mindset of the OB members, mine at least, that I immediately thought of SmackOverHawg. Always kind of wondered to what his identity here referred, Now I know! I've a...

Tornado exposed a thief - BFIV
Seems that when a neighbor ran to assist the inhabitants of a house one of the tornadoes destroyed up here Sunday evening, he found some of the stuff that had been stolen from him the day before.

Tornadoes, wind, hail, severe thunderstorms headed right our way. Hope aVAtiger has been watchin the forecast. 50% chance of tornadoes here. That's incredibly high odds for this region. Clinch Mountain is standing tall between us and the storm direction. That always helps. Glad I have the genera...

Spinoff from legality of killing snakes thread... - BFIV

Was wondering if Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv would kill the wild hogs - BFIV
I guess it would, but according to this article, it's unlikely they will catch this, so the population continues to grow. [link=(http://wild-wonderings.blogspot.com/2014/06/pedv-in-feral-swine.html)]LINK[/link] Yeah, it's a very rainy day here today. Can't get outside to do anything......

One less crotalus horribilis... - BFIV
Since all legless reptiles are protected by Virginia law, it is a violation to intentionally kill or harvest any snake. But...when a timber rattler is crossing the road in a residential neighborhood, and you "accidentally" run over him, that's not a violation. This one was a juvenile, about 15 in...

My OB semi-annual change of pace - BFIV
I don't have any legless reptile ID questions. We don't have any wild hawg problems here...yet. And I'm so far away from the major duck migration flyways that a wild duck of any kind around here is always of the Wrongway species. But we do have a lot of these: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch...
