    I can fish in the lake below me and catch catfish ... sorry, not my cup of tea.. rather eat mud.

    I can fish in the lake down the road 1.5 miles and catch cats, bass and stripers.

    I can go about 6 miles and fish in the aquaduct and catch stripers, bass and ??? not sure cause I don't fish.

    I will let you guys fish... and I will trade you canned fruit, fresh eggs, meat, butter and cheese. Or fresh vegetables from my garden or fresh fruit from my trees.

    Don't need any of those things? I am a pretty darn good sewist! you describe it and I can make it. No? Let's barter then.

    I am still eating the chocolate.

    I can understand where you are coming from. For me fishing is rather relaxing. If I get something great, if not, I'll find another food source, providing I don't already have something in mind.

    And if ye want to barter, we have a thread going on what you would barter with. One of my knacks is working on small engines, basic work usually, but when I can get it working I can barter. In fact I currently do that. A buddy of mine got his oldest a non-working go-kart. I waited until the kid asked me to help fix the motor, then we got down to bartering. He ended up watching my daughter while the adults went to watch a movie.


    P.S. and yes, I would rather eat the chocolate than use it polish that can, but if it meant staying warm and being able to cook some other food, then I'm doing it.
