That's true lostagain.  
The aircraft at Offutt Air Force Base shoot flares to knock the skeeters out of the air and buzz the runaway to scare off the buffalo before they land.

In moments of adversity;when life's a total wreck, I think of those worse off than me and really feel like heck.

How do the keep the prairie dogs from digging up the runways?

A loaded B52 weighs in at about half a million lbs. Kinda hard for prairie dogs to dig through 2 feet plus of reinforced concrete runway on top of whatever base is under there....

Yikes - never ending snow! We got lots in Colorado but fortunately we are close to Utah canyon country. Heading to Hovenweep National Monument with our 179 next week!

We're heading to Great Basin Ntl. Pk. next week, but the stormy weather pattern looks like it may last a while longer.  I hope we don't get snowed on.

You have obviously not dealt with the gophers or prairie dogs we have out here.  LOL

Grew up in NorCal, and had a lot of fun with gophers in the day. Saw one disappear a full grown artichoke plant down a hole. But still, I think in a fight between a hardened military runway and some small burrowing mammals, the mammals are gonna lose every time.. Besides, where’s their motivation, there’s no yummy plants to eat under there.

first trip for Daisy Mae is a music festival... boondocking her first time out! I'm hoping it's not too wet in the field they have us all in.. and believe it's far from a river! Phew! But good point about those hungry mosquitoes... packing extra repellent for sure.

there's just too much to see, waiting in front of me.
