    Default Hello from South Carolina

    Hello from down in the low country of South Carolina. I'm just getting started with bees although thirty years ago I used to carry them on tour with my semi around the country. I continued in the trucking business moving other freight but I haven't hauled or done anything else with bees in many many years. Times have changed so I find myself about to repeat a little history. This time I want to do much more than just transport them for others from location to location with my truck. I am interested in learning everything there is about bees from A to Z. I'm excited about working with the little ladies once again however I find myself starting from scratch so it's gonna be an all new learning adventure for sure...

    Welcome! I can assure you that you are correct about it being a learning adventure, but it is a fun and fulfilling one IMO. My profession is on the other side of trucking.....being the mechanic, been doing so for almost 30 years. Again Welcome!!

    Thanks for the welcome, glad to find such an interesting group forum. Wish the computer age had come about sooner for many of us. It makes life a little easier without depending so much on the school of hard knocks as our first learning tool..
    *OK, guess I'll have to say a Gamecocks fan!!

    It's a fun town with good food. How long do you think it will take you before you start thinking about putting together a load of bees and going to almonds? If they are your hives are you exempt for keeping a log book etc?

    Papar,
    Where were you? Maples by the coast where producing but inland in my neighborhood I saw a couple that didnt seem to be there yet.

    It did look like they've been working the maple for a while, found some nice burr comb to snack on. I'm near the Conway area

Public service,DOT,FMCSA boyz hold all the cards & get paid to attend Kangaroo court, I don't (it's all about money anyway, safety? yeah right!! I got passed yesterday by pops who was running maybe 80mph with grandma in an MCI converted 42 foot bus/camper rig pulling a BMW on 20 foot trailer with golf-cart. I saw him later at the rest area in GA , must have been pushing not a day over 90 give or take a year? Camper tags,camper insurance, auto license, sheeeese!! Can't fight city hall!
