By the time you’re reading this I’ll be driving through Georgia or at our South Carolina lease checking out food plots and deer sign. As many of you know I’m transitioning to a new job next week and decided to take the remainder of this week off to go have fun. Links and words up here might be truncated over the next couple of days as I’ll be following the thread primarily by iPhone, but I will get the Open Thread posted at their usual time. In the meantime, while we’re waiting for the next Vikings game to start we’ll continue with our thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. With that, let’s do this.
Around the DN since our last thread:

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
