Out and about today:



Lots of flood evidence from a rainstorm and thaw we had back in February. This is about 100 yards from the edge of the river and vertically is about 8 feet higher than the normal water level. It is also about 10 yards from and at about the same elevation as a spot where I often have a blind set up



This culvert is normally on a small creek that is 18 inches wide by 1 to 3 inches deep. It is a 24 inch culvert and has never washed out before. Ended up caught up in the trees about 15 yards from where it was originally installed:



And to end the day I got the side by side stuck. They are great tools but mine does not have the same clearance as an ATV. Shady spot on a 20% slope with about 15 inches of snow for a 100 yards or so. Snow had been frozen and thawed a bunch of times giving it a very hard dense consistency and once the frame was hung up it was just spinning all 4 wheels in the air. Really need to put a winch on that thing.
