    Great post Mike! PBS has been showing a film about a guy that lived for years in the wilds of Alaska. Show is called "Alone in the Wilderness". If it happens to be on, you have to check it out. Amazing.

    Aaaah....the wilderness, where nobody would notice that you're burying 'something', or at least they wouldn't ask any questions....

    "....Aaaah....the wilderness, where nobody would notice that you're burying 'something', or at least they wouldn't ask any questions...."

    I'm not quite sure what to make of that observation, 13, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt and assume you were momentarily consumed by a Nordic "Impulse" to cache in the snow ....
