    Thumbs down Terrible sight at the favored training field!

    Terrible sight at the favored training field!

    So sap is not running, cold and windy. So I take my
    dogs to my favorite training field. It is the front field
    at Sullivanís Duck camp. The site of the first NAHRA
    field tests I chaired and more recently the favored
    opening series field for our AKC master hunt test.
    It is my go to spot and I have known the landowners
    since childhood. So I pull in the south east opening of
    the class 4 west rd. that is just melted out and passable.
    I stop and take this photo. Note the gentle roles of the
    field. The stunning Adirondack Mountains to the west.
    THE FRESH BOX SPRING IN THE MUD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    and yes I left the photo huge so you can clearly se the beauty and the ugly






    I HATE LITTER I HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT

    Hate it also, but it is better than the bulldozers starting a new subdivision.

    Looks like a good excuse for some a nice bonfire on a cool night, some hotdogs, and beer!

    I hate litter too. It is the ultimate in low-class. No class actually.

    It is not cool for sure. Thankfully it's not a big mess and hopefully a one time dump job.

    Ken,
    If you can find the gal it belonged to, could you please post a pic of her, too?

    Looks like it took a beating!

    Stand it up and use it for a stickman. Problem solved.
