    Must be a new Moderator in town.

    After careful consideration of the options available, and several attempts to find someone who could run it as a "favor" to the community, I opted to transfer it to an entity that specializes in operating and promoting forums. The only remaining option was for it to fade into oblivion. There...

    Questions for the SAR folks

    I have taken Gryffin (a golden retriever) on bushwhacks and he has exactly retraced our steps out using only his nose. Even if we find a herd path that might a better exit, he still insists on retracing. I find it comical that he can dig a buried cheez-it out from 6" of snow in winter. The...
