Since it is hunting season you will only see moose trout on Sundays otherwise they are in hiding with all of the jackelopes.

So that is where they went.

I had heard that they were all hiding on various walls disguised as mounted Moose Heads.

Ya know, it will only be a matter of time before one of our members digs out his old Billy Bass singing fish plaque and puts moose antlers on it! 

I can't wait  ;D

I keep thinking I need to stay out of any more of this.......

But... if the Moose Trout are either hibernating for the winter, or hiding on the walls with the mounted Moose Heads next to the jackelopes...

Does that mean they are really...

a Moosrout???  or a Trouoose???

I am going to regret this after I click on the "Post" box.

Out of curiosity, will the sheathing covering the bridge trusses be installed while the bridge is in Sheepscot, or after it is installed over Trout Brook?  Is completion of the sheathing part of the work that must be completed by the end of the year?

I love that video. Awesome.

You see in Brendans 4th picture up from the bottom, Tim and I are working on the lateral cross braces. They will be just above the floor beams when installed.

I also learned a trick or 2 today. Working with someone like Tim can teach you a few things.
