Roger Repp’s Puerco Mountains Report 

Buenos It's Hot Out Herpers,

If I could push the October button, I'd do it! All you high elevation and road cruising herpers LIVE for this heat. Those of us who have to wallow in it think it SUCKS!

Howdy Herpers,

Well, I have several reports in the hopper, but we'll just have to let them rot a while longer.

Last Saturday, the Peach surfaced on our plot. It was like old times again. Those of us who remained in the Sonoran Desert over Memorial Weekend were treated to Arizona perfect weather all three days. We speak of about 80 degree highs and 60 degree lows. Awesome!

Howdy Herpers,

First off, I'd like to welcome my friends Urs from Switzerland, Freek from Holland, and Adrian from Mexico. Yup--we're going international with the Puerco reports now. (Grin) I'll still try to remember all you "little people" in my life.

Howdy Herpers,

And thus it came to pass that on Saturday morning, 19 April 2008, Herman the German arrived at my house 35 minutes late, blaming his sidekick Jared for his tardiness. In all, there were 10,000 excuses, each rejected by 10,000 rebukes. The sniveling and bitching was legendary.

Howdy Again Herpers,

Let's see, you were left hanging with a rather mundane herp report of the coming and going of about ten rattlesnakes. Ho hum.

Of course, ten rattlesnakes that live in pristine surroundings are worth a day trip out, in my opinion. Others on this list might disagree--but they don't matter much, do they?

Spring in the mountains

Howdy Herpers,

I wanted to give a special snow day greeting to my Chicago friends and family. How I wish that I could share in your frigid rapture. At least I wouldn't be suffering from sunburn!

Enough harassing the hapless...

My name is Roger Repp, and my friends call me Moody. My friend is Dr. Gordon Schuett, but I call him Broody. We are Moody and Broody, two Americans of Germanic descent linked together by a common obsession-Herpetology.
