Monday I pulled my Alabama beaver line. It was miserable, rained most of Sunday night and most of Monday when I was pulling. Rain on top of ice, rain on Alabama red clay. Yeehaa! Down the banks on my butt, up the banks on my hands and knees. I covered my truck seat with my extra coat and at the last set I was such a mess I just stripped down to socks and underwear and drove to my daughters , I called my wife and had her meet me in the driveway with pants and boots. A hot shower and things are looking better. Not! I'm cleaning and storing my equipment for our return home Tuesday and I'm 1 330 short. I check my notes, I check my memory. Ah man I got to go back out! Arggggg. I start to pull my wet muddy gear on and let me tell ya, I was PO'd. Susan asks "Are you sure you counted right?" Kaboom! "$&;: yes I counted right! I counted the ;-&$ things twice! Do I look like friggin idiot? " "Did you count that one?" And points at this -

Long, long pause "No Suze I didn't ". Another long pause "What side would you like me to start on?" Suze - "What?" "What side of your butt would you like me to start kissing for the way I just acted?" She just laughed and got us some coffee, a lesser woman would have made herself a widow long ago.

Don't feel bad, I have 3 kids that are ages 3,5,and 7 and last summer we were at a baseball game watching my oldest 2 and after it was over we were fixing to leave the field and I looked around and didn't see my little girl(2yr old at the time) so I started panicking looking for her. So I yell to my wife who is talking to a couple friends WHERE IS ALEXIS! and they look at me like I'm crazy and it was then I realized that I was holding her

The fact that you would head back out (after enduring such awful conditions) to collect that 330, speaks volumes to your ethics as a trapper. Good Job and glad you didn't have to.

That is a great woman.

I'm sure a few of them would've just kept quiet and let you run the whole line searching for it all day in vain.

I generally count 'around' as arms length.
