  1. Wow, that's nice! Do you guys ever get those huge grasshoppers where you are? The ones that are (from my childhood memory at least) about 4" long and 1/2" thick?

  2. I went through a field last year and felt like I was being attacked by grasshoppers from every side. Yes, they went 'ping' as they flew into my spokes.
