Gun Control / Re: Trump to Sessions “ban bump fire stocks”
« on: February 20, 2018, 09:23:48 PM »
There is already a law that forbids bringing a gun onto school property, how is that working now?

So Shawn, where exactly do you stand on this? You can not have it both ways. I think the bump stock being legal is going in the wrong direction to be considered worth fighting for. I don't want my 2nd rights to go away, but still have to look at real problems. I won't be handing over my mags or rifles, but do think there is middle ground we can work with. If I can not buy an auto rifle without paying a premium , why should I be able to buy a bump stock and end up damn close to the same result.

Ken, I don't think that is just your opinion. It is so hard to get the right stuff to repair a problem area.

plinking and 45/70 doesn't really go together unless you really back off on the powder.

Time for a bigger 5th.


Yes indeed, brand new state of art 5th wheel with four slides and a new rig sitting on the flatbed behind the cab. You won't feel so bad when it is time to pay at  the fuel stops. Nice to have all the room for fuel, right up to the time you have to pay for it.


Nice set up as long as you have room to maneuver, doing a nice job setting it up. You should never have to worry about pin weight of a trailer either.

D.O.T. / Re: Winter driving

And when the plows get to the area, fighting all the abandoned cars just slows down their work. Every area has its own requirements for calling in the crews after hours. Just depends on where you are at the time. Plow trucks could be working but just not where you happen to be.

9

Well, for location of stuff, I am just a road worker so I just measured from a couple known points for each end and made a quick dirty not to scale drawing to have and hold forever. Same with the sewer cleanouts, and D box.


I would think some kind of metal roofing would well outlast the asphalt shingles. Biggest draw back is metal can be a bit slippery when wet if you have much of a slope to the roof.


 Sprinkler....have the plumber provide a stub out from the 1 inch minimum  water service line for connection of irrigation. If on metered water service, request a 1 inch or larger meter for good flow to the home and fewer sprinkler stations.


Depending on how far down the basement floor is, not sure conduit would be needed. Could be a lot of digging to get down to it.

10

How well will shingles hold up in your area? Would metal or tile roofing hold up better? You can even get metal in a tile look or even metal 3 tab look...


Sprinklers, if using drip type for individual shrubs and trees, don't use the black plastic tubing as good old pvc has a much longer life. Have them install lots of conduit under the concrete flatwork for wiring and irrigation runs and mark/map the locations. I wish they would have used one size larger here at the winter place as I could only get 1/2" pipe through the conduit.

Then you have to buy a new bigger safe to hold all the new shinny stuff. Good part of that is you hand down the old safe to the wife and when she gets her/ your together stuff in the old one, you have lots of vacant area to fill with new shinny/ or not stuff.

Nice getaway place, or even a main home for that matter. I really like the covered porches and the metal roofing. Once you get all that grass on the side of the house turned into a pool the mowing time will be reduced....

Could you plumb a second heat source and use wood boiler to keep the temp right. My friend in WA uses a wood stove with coils as an only heat source for his pool.

Wow, a pool....So who gets to keep it clean. Every needle, twig, creepy crawler in the county will be in it if it is an outdoor model. I like the idea of two 500 gal tanks, regulators do fail and that pool better be warm for the family.

I was going to ask the same question as Bob. in WA you need at least two rear facing. And I like them for watching the rear tire without sticking my face out the window in the oncoming path of mud and debris


Hi Tate, how is the weather up there, Ken's state can not be beat, during the winter that is....

« on: February 03, 2018, 07:41:02 PM »
Sounds like you are mixing your own blend for the growing medium. Do some reading and studying for the right mixture for the best results. You will probably have lots of weed seed from the river silt and the donkey droppings. No really good  way for weed control other than herbicides or continues weeding, so for a few years just stay on top of the weeds and all should work out OK. Some of the top soil places use extreme heat to kill the weed seed, try to keep on top of them and all should be good.

Sounds like a good soil blend for growing. Is the river soil and donkey droppings processed or will you be fighting lots of unwanted growth the first couple years?

Spent the day at the Grand Canyon, what a sight that big hole is. Still some snow around, after all it is 7,000ft. Saw 3 bunches of elk laying around under the pine and juniper. No photos, wife had her camera and we don't have a card reader to transfer them to the computer.

Ken, how good of an operator do you have to be to run water back uphill? Maybe a pond is going to happen, make sure all the important upgrades to the area are protected by some rip rap or ditch (wash) around that area.

After thinking on this a bit, depending on what insurance you bought, you just might have a good claim, depending on how you describe how the damage happened. Check with the high school shop teacher, maybe they are looking for a class project.

Maybe while waiting on an engine a different bilge pump system install is in order. Mount an auto pump system with manual and auto switch in the bottom of bilge and run the discharge hose to a through hull fitting set well above the waterline. Might check with the big marine place along the hwy near Everett they might be able to help with either a used replacement engine or do a rebuild for you. Boats are usually tossed away because of engine damage not drift or rock damage to the hull. The bad part is the engine and running gear are always more than the rest of the boat is worth.

« on: January 23, 2018, 02:10:09 PM »
Yes the Contender and Encore systems from T/C are very fun. I started with the Contender and a .41 mag barrel, bought a .410 shot/.45 colt for the travel trailer and the list kept growing. Then bought an Encore frame with a 7mm/08 handgun barrel. They are all fun to shoot and with the rifle stock and longer tubes can be good for hunting. Only bad thing with them is barrels keep following me home.

That is a very good looking rig, sorry it wounds on the wrong end. The style /shape of the stock could be causing part of the bruising, along with the metal butt plate. I have a couple of Ruger falling block rifles in 45/70 and a T/C Contender hand gun with 14" barrel also in 45/70. One of the Rugers is a stainless with laminated wood for hunting the wet side of Washington. I started with the handgun but it is a bit of a challenge to hold on target.

Agreed Bob. Little hot loads like that, are a crutch for poor shooting skills IMO or when you are competing and have a sponsor, money is no object.  You mis read the wind or distance and its a lot more forgiving at 4000fps.  That's why now they have 308 matches where only 308s compete.  Levels the playing field.  I still think the 300 WM is hard to beat all around.  One reason the secret service used it for years and perhaps still do.


Yup.....My go to round for hunting is a 300 win mag. Might mess up a little more meat but they are usually dead right there.

Charles, I was told it wasn't the speed as much as all the powder burning that ate up barrels. Cuda, more important to know what the bullet is doing at the needed range than how fast it is getting there. I know the wind is not a friend but heavier keeps a better line than faster. A good old .257 Roberts improved is about as good as it gets for longer range yote hunting.

I can understand the family benefits side but when forced to weed water and harvest when the lake was calling was hard to swallow. I do not look back at fond memories of the garden or berry patches.
