    Thank you so much! I'm really from Iceland though, but living in Norway :) (not that it matters)

    In some ways, Iceland is more authentically "Norwegian" than Norway herself :) You´ve even managed to keep the language closely related to Old Norse, whereas we speak Danish of sorts :D

    Yeah Bokmål is pretty close to written Danish, but sounds very different (at least to me). I've had Danes come in to work though and they just talk Danish, no explaining beforehand or anything. Even though I'm partly Danish and have learned a bit, Danish still seems like an alien language to me lol.. But Norwegian is fun! I love learning it. I'd say you are moving more towards Icelandic with the Nynorsk, at least in some way. But it's also true that the Icelandic language is basically Old Norse :)

    This wasn't supposed to be so long, I don't want to ruin the picture thread! But however, nice to see another living in Norway :D

    I am on the bottom left. I am a highschool student, and when I'm not taking care of spiders, I love to play Xbox! :D This is me in my science classroom dissecting a frog.

    Doing work on the reef aquarium, making sure everything is good to go before I take off for a road trip to hit up the lake of the ozarks, probably will hike Haha tonka state park again and see if I can find and get some photos of Centruroides vittatus and some herps maybe.

    It's about a two and a half hour drive from me. I'm comptemplating hitting the road today or tomorrow morning super early. Hmmmm.

    Have you ever been to Haha Tonka? Place is incredible, it is one of the jewels of MO for sure.

    Nope never been to haha tonka. Lake of the ozarks is probably about 45 minutes away from me. I'm in sringfield, it's about 40 miles from branson

    Oh boy Lake of the Ozarks, I hope this is a fishing trip, cause if it isn't its a waste of a trip. Lake of the Ozarks is where the tube was invented and popularized. That lake has some of the cleanest water in the country, despite being heavily built on and being one of the busiest lakes in the country, its water is also some of the most frequently tested in the country and is the most tested lake in the state....its a dock fishermans dream, more docks on that lake than just about any other lake in existence (something like over 70,000 of them)....great finesse lake, those fish will eat all your finesse worms...keep the drop shot and shakey head armed and at the ready!

    Have fun, and please, catch (and release) some bass for me @Ceymann :)

    Be safe though, that lake can be a zoo, especially on holiday weekends.

    Come on down! We will go fishing! There's some good crappie and some decent walleye fishing here too! Stockton lake is crazy for white bass, they eat those roadrunners and rooster tails up! If you wanna catch some big garr I've seen them around five and a half feet. Also the area is awesome for turtle watching. One of the areas I fish has tons of turtles constantly hanging out near the dam.

    We have some crazy huge trout, from what I've heard and what bass pro has In their tanks, Im not big on trout fishing but I've caught a couple decent rainbows by mistake.

    My family has a house down there on a rocky point, with a 5 slip dock that has been there about 20 years, it is a fishing dream.

    I mostly use Gary Yamamoto hula grubs during spawning season as those momma bass sitting on their beds will attack crayfish imitations even if they aren't hungry, however I am sure you are already aware of all this. This time a year I'll use a GY slugo worm wacky rigged of course, also ill use shad raps and large slab buster jigs. I also have a little 17ft Boston Whaler I take to go trolling for white bass and walleye.

    I'll also go fly fishing for blue gill to use as live bait on jug lines for flatheads. Sometimes I'll also drive down stream of trout dale and go fly fishing for the existing rainbow trout population with a foam hopper dry fly and a weighted nymph, usually a copper John.

    Well I'm going to try to hit the sack, I hope to be on the road by 6 am tomarrow.
    Have a great labor day weekend everyone !

    yep, I'm green with envy. You're a lucky man.

    Try a dropshot for bedding fish, its unreal..actually its effective 365 days a year...I win a fair amount of money with that rig every year....I dominate the tough nights with it and sometimes bring in huge sacs with it on those nights and destroy the competition.

    Them hula grbs, I don'y use em much, but theyre certainly an effective bait, that's for sure....same with senkos, although I avoid them because of the number of fish that get gut hooked when using them...ya just can't help it sometimes..
