Soo I'm starting to get the hang of this thing. I thought I was going to be able to record every town we go to each morning but that's just not going to happen. Instead I'll mark the location with the farthest point of the day. Since I'm working primarily from my phone I don't have the ability to move pictures around soooo I'll just start an entry for the day so I can upload pictures and finish it that night.

Man what a long day today and we only had 3 sites to do. Our first point was an hour and a half away and our last point was almost to Columbia. Three days in and we have racked up close to 1,000 miles on the truck. It looks like we will be filling the truck up every other day. For today we heard a few quail and got some video of deer and more turkeys.

Soo its been 24 hours since day one of p90x and I can tell! Today was all jump training. It was an hour of that good accomplishment pain. I have a feeling walking in the field tomorrow might be a little more of a chore.

Dinner tonight was green beans, mushrooms, and venison steaks (are you seeing a trend?). After dinner we went on a feral hog hunt. The hogs didn't cooperate today which is probably a good thing. The mosquitos were soo thick in the box blind my first shot would of been just to clear a hole to see out of. The air was filled with a deafening hum of tiny wings. I guess that's to be expected in the swamp. We may have the chance to go tomorrow so stay tuned.

I'm beat so I'm calling it a night. We get to sleep in tomorrow and don't have to leave till 6 soo it should be a good day.

Btw I saw a kid on a leash today find the end of his leash, it made my day.

Pretty cool man! So I guess you got to bring some pig harvesting devices with you? Did you use the Thermacell yet sounds like a good place to put it through its paces.

Well we acquired a few devices. I haven't used the thermacell yet. I wish I brought it but we had no idea we were going to go until we got here.

NO! I really wanted to tho. We pass it on the way to our last point and we are always pushed for time. Looks like we will just have to hunt with Mike again!
You know we have really not run into that many people. A few farmers here and there but they don't have a lot to say. Last year we ran into one guy i'll have to tell you about when I'm back. From now on I will try to include any characters we run into.
