I did say it was a "quick guide". If you want a complete guide, you'll have to write it yourself. Or hire someone to write it.

There are THREE ways to get something done.

1) Do it yourself.

2) Hire somebody to do it.

3) Forbid your kids to do it.

-------------------------------------------------------------

You know what the true definition of an "expert" is?

He's the guy that has messed it up more often than anybody else. There is nobody that is going to know it, inside and out, the way he does.

Wish you would tell my husband that. He seems to operate on the "Goofy Principle" (as in Goofy from Disney) lately -- If it ain't broke.... it will be! ;-)

Hey speaking of political matters ( especially out of state ones),It seems the story of the Nevada rancher is getting interesting!

Turns out Bundy is not the first by a long stretch:

Eureka rancher next on BLM arbitrary list - The Ely Times

And remember, before the BLM decided to hike fees and restrict grazing numbers down to nonviable for a working ranch, there used to be 52 ranchers in Clark County. Now there's just Bundy.

Now I can't find it again (I mighta posted it here, tho), but there's a constitutional scholar who gives a talk on this very subject... how the BLM is an unconstitutional and unlawful agency, because per very direct language in the Constitution itself, any unallocated lands are to be "returned to the states" and NOT sequestered by the federal government.

As I've traversed the western U.S. several times in the past two years, I've found it very interesting to note range conditions vs use. The two most highly-regulated states, California and Oregon, are in by far the worst shape. California looks drought-stricken and eastern Oregon has gone from desert to dirt. (Tho the huge fire of two years ago has helped a lot; that area has gone back from invasive sage to native grass.) Conversely, you can practically draw a line along the Nevada border where the desert has a lot more greenery and thicker growth, especially grass. Southern Idaho has really strict water use regulations, and where it's farmed it's in good shape, but otherwise it's not great. And again, you can practically draw a line at the Montana border -- the graze on our side of the line is in better shape, more grass and less weeds and sagebrush. Yet MT has lighter restrictions on use. Utah, which appears to have a policy that the earth was made for man's use and uses it to the hilt, is the greenest of the lot by a long shot. Utah also has the most industry and the most prosperous-looking farms and ranches.

These areas all get similarly-parsimonious rainfall (actually MT and NV get less than most of the other areas) so that's not a huge factor here.
