    I wouldn't use Tulip Poplars as they are prolific spreaders of seeds and can overrun an area. There are many varieties of dwarf apple trees that would work as well.

    I looked at the pictures and didn't see anything inherently dangerous about the jumps. I've got jumps built into the fence lines of my farm that include coops (more vertical than the corner shown),...

    While jump judging I've seen multiple people get eliminated for jumping the wrong fence when several division's fences are lined up side by side.

    I've felt particularly bad for the people who are...

    I'll give him credit for continuing the programs and policies that were in place despite campaigning against them in 2008. I'll give him credit for giving the go ahead when the time came. I did find...

    The phone/internet companies are regulated already. I live by anyone's standards in the middle of nowhere. We are the last house on the end of a seven mile long phone line. That phone line...

    We had the same problem with axles on our hawk. We took it to a welding shop and they straightened them. That was three years ago and we've had no problem since.

    I'm not a fan of the restaurants in Middleburg. There is Hunter's Head in Upperville which is about 5 miles west of Middleburg.

    The Wilderness Battlefield is just west of Fredricksburg on Route 3. If you take Rt 3 to Culpeper and then head north on 29 to Warrenton, you can also stop at Brandy Station which has a small museum...

    I don't know how old is too old. I've met people in the hunt field that are in their 70's and still hunting first flight. There are a lot of risks in the hunt field. I think it would be hard to...

    The helmet cam is cool and maybe some of those jumps look better live. I think it is the third or fourth jump on the course that is four blocks across the front of the jumps. It has gaps between...

    The only heads up I'll give on the Maine thing is that if a VA cop continuously see's the trailer parked in VA you can be ticketed for failing to register in VA. If that happens then you have paid...

    WG is right about current prices in Culpeper. However, we avoided Culper County because basically the county has been rezoned for growth. While there is not much happening now, when real estate...

    I keep wondering where is the liberal outrage against our involvement in Libya? We heard it, and rightfully so, for 6 years with W but now we hear no criticism of Obama. I think the liberals are...

    Installing centaur fencing is pretty easy. Far easier than doing board fence. I'm also wondering why they recommended doing posts every 10'. When we did ours they recommended 12-16'. That's 8...
