    Mooresville to Aylett is 300 miles one way. Just under a 5 hour trip. When do you want your bees?
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    I will not be spending 5 hours in a Prius with a colony. But thanks, all the same!

    I was thinking two colonies, but yeah, a Prius is just not an appropriate bee hauling vehicle. All the same, you are welcome to visit if you are in the area.

    Prius would be fine. In this heat the bees would appreciate the a/x as well. Just make sure the lid is closed. The odd stray bee will go out the window of you crack it. I have had Nucs go 3 hours to long island and NJ inside the car.... Just don't stop for lunch....

    Nice! I have a very nice 1946 edition of The Hive and The Honey Bee handed down from my Grandfather. I'm wondering what the differences are. If it's anything like his edition of Gray's Anatomy, it's better left on the shelf except for occasional comfort.

    I do love old books. However, I use Calibre to collect and curate the ones I have chosen to read. Since most of everything that is in the Public Domain contains all the collected bee knowledge that seems merely to be repeated... except for varroa and pehaps some other diseases, meh. Occasionally I will buy some book, and ultimately find that it reads like a 7th grade book report liberally 'borrowing' from these tomes of old. And yet some others are just full on re-releases of them verbatim. I will say that so far, I have found a handful of people producing some novel work, but then it tends to amount to a chapter or two, surrounded by... well you guessed it. There is a beauty and elegance in the language and style of these old books. I look forward to seeing new authors embody some of this as well as some new information, that is not some strange gimmick or odd "tire kicking" superstition. I look forward hopefully, but not really all that expectant.
