I agree 100 percent .at 65 years old the heat is just ridiculous. But I find I still can't stop digging guess what does not kill you makes us stronger . That's because us bottle diggers are tough
If I had a spot I could just drive to, and walk a short distance, I wouldn't be quite so bitchy.

I don't even have a "good" spot at the moment.

The places I'm looking at, have 2-10 miles involved, through thick woods.

Went to check out a potential site today (only 88° lol), 5 miles total, a sea of stinging nettles and have nothing to show for it..

Soaked!!!

It's nice to get out and enjoy nature, but I wrang ONE of my shirts out three separate times before I put on a spare.

Got all scratched up and exhausted for nothing.

Gotta pay to play though..

The only thing stopping me is frozen ground, even tried that can't be done by hand.

I hate it!
With temps in 90's, hiking and digging is just not wise. I'd have go pack 50 lbs of water and at no point be comfortable.

It sucks.
I just wanted to bitch lol.

Stay safe, stay hydrated.
Hi Newtothiss,
My plan was to head out early last Sunday hike roughly 2 miles through the woods to a dump that I had seen but never dug in. Saturday night my daughter informed me one of my neighbors had just seen a mountain lion right in that area. We do get them passing thru every once in a while in CT. I have no desire to see one out in the woods alone, so between the heat and humidity and a possible mountain lion I decided to take the day off. Better days are coming.

Roy,
"There are no ( __) in CT." Baloney! A while back I saw a mt. lion that walked right in front of my truck (live near I-91 high ground). I'll never forget that long rope like tail. (Now a [home] Panthers fan in the NHL.) Once in a while we get bears too (but my NFL allegiance is already spoken for.)

The BEAR'S will take out Panthers anytime
