So, Reb and I have been discussing national forests, lets hear how many acres your state has.

Dunno about National Forest acreage, but forests cover 90% (17.7 million acres) of Maine.  I believe Maine is the most heavily forested state in the country.

Timber is the 2nd largest cash crop here in Mississippi. 

Any advice to a flatlander as to how to prepare for the mountains?  I thought I was gonna die walking around Yellowstone, and it was about 8,000 feet.  Where I live is about 400 feet above sea level.

Lots of exercising. Running is the best route to get conditioned for the high country.

hopefully you enjoyed your Yellowstone trip though!! I live about 180 miles from it and it is an awesome place to visit. I love going to see the different places, and I always try to spend some extra time at sites I have never been to or spent very little time at before. plus there is great fishing and hunting around the area that is just outside the park, if you are into that. I love to jsut see the magnificent beauty of that whole area.

I enjoyed it very much.  I spent 2 full days and half of a thrid day there, and I loved it.  This was my first trip that far west or north, and I can't wait until I can go back, hopefully next year.  I'm planning on hitting the Tetons next trip also.

Bug Spray!!!! The mosquitoes are savages in the Tetons. Plus you have the elusive golden trout in the tetons. But lots and lots of bug spray.

The only trout fishing I've ever done was for rainbows in Arkansas.  Not real sure how you would go about catching them lol.

Lakers are deep water logs.

Whats fun is catching wild browns and cutts that go soaring through the air.

I remember with the rainbows in Arkansas, the water was so clear that you could see the fish when they'd bite the hook.  I was pretty young when we went, so I don't remember a lot about it.

The one occasion I remember with rainbows is the beast my cousin caught ice fishing. The pig did circles under the clear ice and seeing those colors under that ice was incredible.

The Canadians have infiltrated those areas pretty hard,  guys up north are feeling the pinch. (and rabidly hate them)

But, theres still many thousands of private acres to cut on. People are having guys come in to harvest to make extra cash for themselves. If I had more than 13.5 acres Id think about it myself. My land has been cut as recently as 10 years ago, so its not really ready yet. (plus I cut my firewood off it too)

To me it was just weird seeing water that clear.  We don't have clear water here.  rofl
