    Re: Original Honeybees in North America

    Re: Original Honeybees in North America

    All of which happened after the early 1600s. Why is that hard to believe? Or do you believe that all Cherokee stories are static and from before Europeans arrived on the shores of North America?

    What you don't know could fill volumes, I'm sure. Plymouth Rock is not in Virginia. It's in MA. And people were hardier back in the early 1600s than today. It doesn't matter what anyone can imagine....

    Re: suprise for my fiancee

    I like this idea the best. Then if all he wants is to buy a Bee Book and learn about bees he can. Or he can buy the hive.

    Your Profile says nothing about you or your apiary, other than that you are 50. How many hives have you had for how long? What's your back ground?

    Re: Interstate Hauling of equipment

    If you take the maximum both units can haul, plus their own weight, then you are going to be over weight. GVWR means the total allowable weight of the vehicle plus the cargo.
