Dang Pack Rats and a Drive

Pack Rats 1  Clark’s 1—one of the dang things is still living in the engine of my car, we’ve started the car, tried to drown the nasty bugger and have two huge traps set.  Emmi has been keeping a close eye on the car all day!

This afternoon after packing some more things we decided to take a drive—recently a new USFS road opened near us leading back into what is known in these parts as the Deer Creek drainage.  In 2006 a forest fire swept through this area leaving the views not quite so scenic—but we still enjoyed the drive in the jeep.

Blogs will be sporadic over the next few days, I don’t think there will be much cellular service in the direction we are headed. 


  1. Hoping that you can bat 100 with the last rat.

    Enjoy the quading.

  2. You should have taken your car for your drive today if it had been possible. That might have given the message to hit the road somewhere away from yours.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Dont know what you are baiting your trap with but peanut butter and raw oatmeal mixed together is the ONLY thing I've had success with... good luck to you! I detest the creatures.

  4. I've heard putting a really bright light - like a halogen work light under the hood will sometimes drive them out. Or just buy a new car :-) You have such great places to explore "up there", this looks like another fun one.
