HAHAHA, LMAO Alex....the short answer is hell no, not in that place. I wish that I could have taken a pic about two weeks earlier, that place had hundreds of snappers, I've never seen that many in one place before. It was a rather awesome sight though....

Many years ago, there was a tavern that the owner kept 55gal drums full of water and snappers that he made into soup, when I was young and dumb, we would catch snappers, usually with a broom handle and hold it in front of the snapper. In quick fashion, the snapper would clamp down on the handle and would then be dropped into a big bucket. We'd take the snapper to the tavern and the owner would make us a cubed steak and onion w/butter sandwich...damn, they were good.

But, there were so many snappers in that area it was best to stay concealed....I'll never forget that place...lol

To heck with soup. My older brother would boil turtles and then fry them on a grill. Melt in your mouth.

I'd try that, it does sound good.

I have only seen a few snapping turtles around here, so when we found one that was about two and a half feet long lounging in our swimming hole, we were not too impressed.

Those things are nasty!

But we left it alone and haven't seen any in there since. It must have gone up river into the lake, or it's lurking somewhere else where there's less activity.

We do have quite a few other turtles basking in the bogs around our camp. I'll see if I can get some pictures this weekend.

GUUUUUYYYYYYYSSSSSSS ..... Here I am for 2-3 days to wash and put on repair my equipment for the next achievements.

Joel … I am glad to see you again with us – your garden remember me my parents – they use to love to do the same.

What about my tour – it was a suffering tour. At the first day I succeeded to fall from the bike and I injured my ribs baldly. Fortunately it happened in a grass area, I did not injured other bones or joints. But … I still am sleeping in one only position.

So, instead to do 1200 kilometers, I did only 600. I did not lose my over weight ... maybe next time ...

Never mind, it was really nice. I visited more of the places I intended.

I and my Important One visited the high places in Rila mountain, after I found out my son and his family at the sea side – we were together for 3 days.

I only did not seceded to meet Maya – I had to bicycle 300 more kilometers – it was not possible in this extremely hot June and July … last days was possible to bicycle only to 11 am ...

Several photos now

Looks like a great trip Borislav! Sorry to hear bout the ribs, I've cracked a few, and it is not pleasant when it hurts everytime you laugh or cough.

Love the pictures, especially the one of the cute little girl with the proud grandfather.

I've heading up to my cabin for the weekend this afternoon and hope to spend most of my time there in the water or in front of a fire.

Great pics Borislav...!! That looks like a wonderful adventure, do you make camp fires when you stop for the night? I'm envious that you can get away from work and all other things for such a long time, I guess things just work a little differently over there....

And, it's good to be back with old friends........!!!!

Evenings I am too tired to do a fire Joel, especially in the hot summer evenings … usually at 8 pm my tent is set up, I slip into it, research the map, take a little pin nuts and whiskey … listen to the radio …

Well … maybe here things are not so different than other places, but I am not so ambitions in my work … I intend to enjoy of all I love next days, and when at the 10th of Sept I go working, I will find my colleagues so tired having grey faces … all the summer they were working to get money … I do not know why they need so much money … or they need to be great … I do not know, not easy for me to understand it … well … some more photos …
