The weather is warm and pleasant, the warmest and driest Fall I have spent in St. Maries (11 yrs). Golf has been excellent, fishing up the Joe tough, got skunked the other day for the lst time.
However since it is the 8th of Oct. I got my ski tuning stuff down from the garage loft today and set up my bench but didn't unpack any tuning gear as just too warm yet. But hey historically we are only 6 weeks away from skiing so I have this deep spot in the back of my brain where it is snowing. I know this is true because I get this brain freeze every once in awhile without eating any ice cream so must be so.
Did take my skis into Ski shack for new bindings.
Cleared all my summer furniture off my deck since the weather is going to change Saturday to rain and colder. Besides it was an excuse to get my ski tuning stuff down so I'd have room for summer cushions in the loft.
Notice quite a few hunters coming into St. Maries for opening of Elk & deer rifle seasons. Elk hunting success has really dropped off mainly in the backcountry due to wolf packs really hitting the Cow/calfs hard. The SSS program will be in use this year. Shoot, Shovel and Shutup, t he new creed for guys out in the woods when they see a wolf.
I guess the real giveaway is I have been on Epic more looking for fellow estranged early season zealots. See Mike was here recently. Hi Mike and Everybody.
