Another Anti-Nutter? And I already picked up a bag for you for next September.

Hugh tells me I can swap them out for a bottle of whiskey instead. . . then we can still be friends. :)

I’m going to bring a bag and scatter them about the camps as a bear repellent. I figure no bear will come near us if they smell those things.

I’ll probably have to buy a bag on my way out west because I think circus peanuts are illegal in New York State so I won’t find them around home.

:)

Well I guess I will not be visiting New York any time soon.

I cannot imagine how your fellow citizens would not revolt over such a policy.

Hey, if you are driving next September look for a hitchhiker about half way across Ohio. I'll be the guy in need of a haircut with the over packed pack. :)

They are all denned up at this point I believe.

Here is an observation for you: I have never seen a rattlesnake on Mount Van Cott before. I have seen them immediately to the south in Red Butte Canyon and on Mount Wire, and I have seen them to the north on Black Mountain Ridge and many of them in City Creek Canyon. So maybe Van Cott is a rattlesnake free zone. :)
bet they were smart..unlike me, and were wrapped up in their puffies and using snowshoes!

Do not scatter em! Their half life is something like 5 million years….th only thing that lasts longer outside is a McDonalds hamburger! Scatman is bionic..those things power him up!

If this keeps up, we may have to have a circus peanut challenge on th Grizzly Lake trip…my money’s on Scatman.

Circus Peanuts are a grizzly delicacy! It's common knowledge. :)

My money is on @TractorDoc. My metabolism has slowed way down now that I am :moses: . When I was a young man, I could have finished off a bag of those before our first break on the trail. :)

I'll bet that if you ate this whole bag of peanuts that you could make it to the summit of Black Mountain Ridge, seen in the distance, in 30 minutes, and there is something to be said for that. :D
