Valley Home News for July 27, 2011

What an exciting weekend for our Valley Home 4-H'ers who attended the Stanislaus County Fair. In last week's column we wrote about Garret Bryhni's exciting win at the Fair and his entry beating out over 400 other pigs and that he was now looking for buyers for the animal. Garret named his animal "All That" and his entry came away with the title of Supreme Champion Market Hog, and thanks to the efforts of "Friends of Garret" he received $41.00 a pound, $11,152, for his 272-pound hog. We received word that "All That" will happily ...

Tight Lines - Warranties On Outdoor Gear

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, things go wrong afield and one of your favorite pieces of gear malfunctions. I recall once as we were trekking across the old Immigrant Road that runs from Highway 4 in Hermit Valley to Deer Valley off of Highway 88. The road is a very rugged jeep trail that only the most determined 4 wheelers can negotiate, and is littered with pieces of broken gear that has fallen off the vehicles trying to traverse the road. Our goal on the trip in question was to fish for wilderness trout in a section of ...
