Hi Troutstalker :) What a strange nickname.. but it sounds vaguely familliar. You don't go by the nickname Troutsqueezer elsewhere, do you?

Welcome troutstalker2.

Bought a bunch of furniture in hickory years ago. Was talking to Steve from Brushy a few weeks at a meeting and he mentioned many of the furniture places were not there anymore. Sorry to hear that. I loved the area.

Wife is from Denmark. It's part of her family name. Thought since it means "bear" and with bees, honey, bears....it all went together somehow..  :-D

Troutstalker2.  Welcome to our forum.  Interesting handle for sure, how did it come about?  Tell us that story.....this is indeed a fine place, a great forum, full of friendly and fun loving people. We have beekeepers from the novice to the extremely experienced.  This will be a place where you can spend some awesome time, a place to tell your stories, tales and experiences.  Here you will also make some very good friends, if only you stick around, which I know you will.  Nice that you have three colonies of bees. Have a wonderful and awesome day, great health.  Cindi

Welcome... I work for a paper mill that has a customer in Hickory NC.  A masking tape factory named Shurtape.( I think)  Have fun with the bees.

  Troutstalker is not that interesting of a story, I needed a username and I'm a trout fisherman. Troutstalker was already taken on ebay, so troutstalker2 was it.
  I'm glad to be a part of this forum and I have already learned some things, I'm sure I will learn much much more. Thanks in advance for the help with all the questions I will have.  ;)

Troutstalker2.  Well, I think that was a short, but good story, all stories are good.  You are a fisher, that is cool, in itself, smiling.  Have a wonderful and awesomely great day, Cindi

User names can be cool, like the handles we used to use on the CB back in BC (BC= Before Cellphones).  I think if I were going to pick a pseudonym these days it would reflect my other hobby of pigeon racing....something like Raptorbait.

BTW, welcome to the forum.  Everytime I write "Welcome to the forum" I think I sould be wearing a toga like Julius Ceaser and Mark Anthony.
