Four days and counting...fish that is

Boy howdy, only 4 more days and the BLM officials will be com'n round with a "paddy" wagon to take old Billy Bob away. To jail most likely. For those that don't understand or have no idea what BLM is, you can camp on the public lands (BLM) for a total of 14 days before they kick ya out. And the BLM guy is a big feller with a face full of whiskers and carries a big ole pistola....and handcuffs. But....old Billy Bob got a plan up his sleeve. Take the license plate off'n the jeep and put in on "da house". What ya think???? Two more weeks free camp'n and fish'n???

Speak'n of fish'n....game sheriff come by today..."just check'n licenses, how many fish ya got in da sack". Well I had 3...one a nice one. Soon as he left, I had 4 in da sack....what is the limit...so's I took them inside, cut off their heads.....yank the guts out them...and put them in the freezer. Then I went back outside and catched me 5 more....just like that.

What I got to do now is repackage all the fish what still has tails. With tails, they don't fit the baggies for quantity storage. So...gonna cut the tails off 22 fishes...what I don't eat no how.

Sure hope it's warm when I get to Deming. Gonna have to get back before long anyhows. My debit card done expired on me and I have only enough cash for 100 gallon of gas...what is more than I need. Tried talk'n to pesky neighbor Wayne this morning, but damn....cell signal went out. Oh well, I should be back to Deming in a week...or so.

There was something I were gonna say, but don't remember what it was.

  2. BB, sure sounds like you've got a handle on catching them there fish now!

    What you were going to say and forgot was "I'm going to have to make it back to Terlingua before long."

  3. Yea BB, I got to agree with Trouble on cutting the tails off. BUT I understand in your situation.

    I don't think swapping the license tags from Jeep to MH going to do you any good at all Son.

    Sure sorry you not in TEXAS this day, Texas Independence Day but I thought of you when I ran my flag up and if you'll reminder me,I'll give you one of mine when we meet up later this year.

  6. Don't know about Arizona but at least in Texas even if you are on federal land and they say you have to move in 14 days, it is not enforced unless there are a lot of campers there. Otherwise, a lot winter Texans in Lake Amistad would be in serious trouble!!

    When I was a kid and we lived in Argentina (not from there my dad just worked there) the fish merchant would save the fish heads for my mom and she used to make a really tasty fish soup.

    In the U.S. they don't sell fish heads...too bad you are not close by :-(

  8. The 14 day BLM camping limit is enforced during the winter months in the Yuma, AZ area.

    However, I would be willing to bet that Billy Bob could sit right there from June to October and the BLM 'police' would just scratch their head and 'wonder what is wrong with that old man'.
