Very cool, thanks for the fun-guy lesson!
Wow, the mycilium can go far...I but the radius on that circle was about 6 feet.

Any idea as to the species pictured?

Wow, Mr. Nate.  Hang in there.  Guess you like your Jeep.

Is anyone keeping an eye on Katia yet?

Cool link.  I love to watch radar.

So is that pronounced Caught chya? 
I am thinking most 'mericans will call it Catie ah.

Found a fairy ring last week....a nice sphere of mushroom growth...Anyone ever seen one?

Is it magic or is there some "science" that explains such a regular distribution of growth?

This is a crappy photo, but I mean it was a perfect circle!
I stepped in and made a wish anyway. ;)

....and give some to the chickens ::)  They really are a fantastic plant.

How about Delicata squash.  Anybody grow that one?  Really nice nutty flavor, supposed to be a winter squash but I am eating the first of mine right now.  Nice to go out to the garden for dinner.

Ya'll are making me feel bad for thinking about slicing this fatty for the chickens on the compost pile!

One way to slow down a zuc plant is to let it concentrate on a monster for a while.
I might try that grated and caramelized idea.  Cheers.

I find that bugs add a pleasant yet subtle earthiness that you just can't get from rinsed hops.


I found that if I let them sit overnight outside,
most critters voluntarily vacate the premises!

Have fun.

Yesh, scary stuff Cap. :o

I though you were getting out of there and headed up state? 
You don't have any eucalyptus there do you?

Nate, with your humor, fermentation temps are soon on your horizon.
Best wishes for breaking through.

Shucks on the mushrooms.  Still lots of time to get some.
Hella good landscape to wander around in.

I met some shroom hunters once, collecting for restaurants in Aspen.
Not my kind of folks. They slept in their BMW all night in the forest and drained the battery listening to tunes.  Ragged, I gave them a pull start.  They wondered why I would not tell them where the chantys were I had seen that morning.  Come on man.

Hot springs up to 113?  Climate change fer shure. ::)

 ;)  Good luck next trip.  Lots of jealous heads here who wish they could jump in the Subi and head for the hills.

Man that is cool.  You are really starting to answer the WHY in Wyoming.

Speaking of still snow,
I got to foot ski a massive slab this week way up in the headwaters of the Rio Grande.
Good times in the Colorado alpine.

Speaking of snow already,
I can only point to the massive hail storm we got
on the CDT which collected 12 inches deep in debris flows on the trail.
Made for some good graupelly ball bearing snowconeish treat.
Alls good before the monsoonal flow of 1 pm thunderlinghtening show!

Cool pic of the moose.

this fella found his way to "my" lake.

I just love the gular sac!  What an amazing animal.

Cheers to late august in the high country of this Land!

I dry bean for aroma and add brewed espresso to taste at kegging or bottling.

Do you crack the beans or just put them in whole?

Not the Denny, but I crack mine for sure.

It 8) WOULD be cool to meet the famous Rabid Dingo Dog in the flesh,
but alas,
I am not going to be near enough Durango town on that date to meet.

However, it should be a great time to visit Durango;
seems that the hordes of Texans and Tourons have begun to dissipate.

Would be cool to have a TR (trip report) of your findings!

Should you ever find the ability to travel north through Silver town (via train to sample Sean's wit)
and then head north over the Red Mountain,
there is the pub/brewery crawl of Ouray (your-RAY for you outa staters)
on to Colorado Boy
then Horsefly
and then up to the Gunny brewery of Gunnison
before heading over the ridge of Monarch to the east slope.

It is all the great state of Colorado.


The Pub / Re: Got Wood?
« on: August 20, 2011, 09:57:45 PM »
 :D I have a couple new chicks this year
but they don't care about my wood.

True enough, that stack is more for pleasure burning and shop heat
than to really get me through winter.  I do have my eye on a couple more standing dead.

Good grief, the people's forest around here is rife with dead wood these days.

Goats are good, fat and spoiled.  Sheila turned up with milk, a virgin producer, I guess she really wants a kid.

Vert, I do love the smell of a coal fire as well...ecopunk aye?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Bad news for Utah brewers
« on: August 20, 2011, 09:46:35 PM »
it creates an enviroment that gets us serious about our homebrewing.

Heck yes.

I learned how to make beer in that great state. 
Lots of reasons to develop the skill.

Keep it up home-brew Utah.

Interesting how things change....
when I lived there, in a tiny traditional town,
I had an ancient little old neighbor squint at me when I planted hops on the fence,
she told me it had been 70 years since hops had grown there,
as she remembered her grandma had once tended hops in that ground
to make her "barley beer".
