Come to Yuma AZ. NO ANTS
Oh that must be why I did the quarter mile in under 12 seconds after stepping on a mound of those suckers out Avenue 3E back in 07.
If you are operating under the misconception there is none of them out there you are wrong.
Canada Geese: Rats with wings. Ptooey!
There you go offending our neighbors to the north. :R
No way will that offend any Canadian who has any exposure to those birds.
They tend to cluster around any body of water and will fly out to a nearby corn field to feed. People get involved and wrongly attract them by providing feed then the darn things will forego migration completely if they can find a catchment pond that remains unfrozen as many factory fire/cooling water circulation ponds do.
Those birds do not just poop, they are rather into coating the ground with a layer of stuff that could only be described as "axle grease" in terms of both colour and lubricity.
I've seen golf courses rope off entire greens due to the poop those things have left behind and being a protected species, there are rules in Canada about how you can discourage them; I favour a weekly hunting event to feed the needy with them.
A friend in Louisiana desired some Canadian geese for his many ponds on his property and only after I pointed out that the many bridges without guardrails he had installed to make ATV'ing between those ponds easy and fun would be rendered impassable due to the "grease" those guys leave behind, did he give that idea a pass.
My caution to him went something like: "Ralph, when you attempt to cross one of those bridges as you normally do now by hitting it at around 20 mph, your wife can look forward to watching you come wading ashore cursing a blue-streak and shouting for her to go get the tractor to come haul the up-side down, four tires up, ATV out of the pond."
Dry hitch top plate......scoop up some goose poop, squeaky springs.....lather on some goose poop, neighbours kids running across your driveway....send them home coated in goose poop after falling in the stuff you put in their path, neighbours cats gracing your shrubbery with their spraying.......coat the bottom 8 inches of your shrubs with goose******and those cats will not be let out of the house again after returning coated in that stuff......the list is endless......
Rats with wings is being charitable and goes nowhere near far enough in describing those poop factory birds.
I'm going to jump on to state that having backed all types of trailers up to 53', even some hay wagons with steerable axles the absolute worst to back with any ease is the old narrow, single snow-mobile trailer where you couldn't see the damnn thing in either mirror until it had already gotten sideways, taken out one of your taillights or punched a hole in your bumper.
