Watch out Tom, there's more rain on the way. Have had a couple of short breaks but pretty much been coming down three days straight and very hard hour after hour. Still cold, 46 to 50 degrees most the time.
Wish I'd have counted all the Griffs I saw while there, musta been close to twenty five, maybe more. The state is completely infested with those things. I liked every one I saw. Serious huntin' dogs.
The test site was every chapter's dream come true for the field work. Used but a small portion of it which left a lot of room to run dogs that weren't testing. Lots of wild birds despite all the commotion of the test.
Ellie managed to bump a skunk but she didn't get hit too bad. A quick call by one of the attendees to his son produced a box of baking soda and a bottle of Dawn. I had the peroxide. She's not exactly fresh as a daisy but okay in the house. Gotta get right in her face to smell anything.
I didn't get many pictures cause of the rain. Managed to soak my camera despite being in a plastic bag and in the vehicle. Don't know how much that'll cost?
Drove home in one shot leaving Laurel MT a bit after 6:00 AM, making lots of stops along the way, arriving at the house shortly after 8:00 PM. The rain quit around Butte and stayed dry the rest of the way home. Has been wet ever since, still pouring outside right now.
