This will be a long weekend. Tomorrow, we plan to boil down the first five gallons of maple sap for maple syrup. Wish us luck.
I spent last night testing weapons against deathclaws. (They are mobile death.) By the end of the testing, I had lost most fear of them. One of the tests was the "charging rhino" test. Could I take out a deathclaw at close range at the last second? Yes, oh yes. By the end of testing, I was running around with a shotgun snap-shotting the things into their early graves. They really aren't so tough, unless you are using a weak weapon. The pistol test nearly killed me.
