For anyone who doesn't know, Patch Farmstead is close to the middle of nowhere. About 6 miles behind our farm is 9000 acres of NC Wildlife Department game lands and 15000 acres of the Green Swamp Preserve. The closest section of any of that to us is the part that is the bear sanctuary. Means that six miles from our house is protected bear territory. I'm not sure Dare was really ready to be plunked down into the wild and definitely not ready to be confronted with it all at once.
Jak was very interested when we got to this..
