CIEMR / Re: Trumps AG connection to Ruby Ridge

Ruby Ridge should never have happened. Another case of law enforcement flexing mussels they shouldn't have been flexing.

Yes, more likely the board than the temp rod but Trager should take care of you. I clean the burn pot and lower area every couple burns to try to keep all the ash under control. Mine is the medium size but would think they would operate about the same.

Don, don't know if your figures are right but the winter time warmth in the house/garage is priceless. "O" own fuel cost is a bit low isn't it?

May come to moving the reloading stuff to the casita and locking the girls in the seacan. Just kidding of course but the thought might pop up.

Yup, the boat and pickup would take 3 spots at least. I  ended up staying at a casino in Redding and at Tehachapi up by the Denny's store. If I had known the CHIPS would give me 65 I could have done one overnight and been down here.  I always thought they gave the truckers 62 but held the RV's and other trailers to 57 or so. California is such a pain to drive through, but not as high elevation as the other options and I don't like pulling in the snow.

bob, hows NV treating you and the new boat?



Nate, a bit cool down here this year so am waiting a bit to go for a boat ride. The ramp area is still open but no rangers around but the area is clean and someone is cleaning the area. The ramp and parking is inside the National Lake Mead Recreation area is  managed by theNational Park Service. Was a bit of a hassle coming down looking for places to park for food and sleeping. A lot of motels said I would have to park out on the street, and that just was not an option, for me anyway.

Nate, you wouldn't believe the trash composing the Oly down town area now. Sorry if I offend anyone,  these people don't want help, just a handout, won't offer help, open drug use, get in peoples face for no reason, and have no respect for public property.

Best thing I did was to run non ethanol gas in the small engines and boats. Not a lot of maintenance costs, oil change on the four strokes and new plugs is about it.

Took three days but got the boat down to AZ for the winter. JR, how do you get anywhere towing at 55 mph? Darn trucks were trying to run me over so I speeded up enough to stay with them.

Looking for tire chain advise,   What?s your thoughts for towing with them?  What would the actual use be?  Not me. For my buddy who is overthinking snow coming from NM


I would carry some cable chains, but if towing and chains were required I would just get off the road until they lift the restrictions. Don't know what he is driving but with lots of rigs, they say not to use them. If he is towing and uses them, he might need to chain one axle on the trailer also to be legal.

This same subject came up on a shooting/hunting forum once. Turned out the person only had one arm and bad eye sight too. All caps worked best for him. The big difference was on the other forum he was being put down by the "forum police" that liked to point out mistakes, spelling, and proper word use. Served them right in the end... As long as the message gets across who cares.

We usually buy the individual cuts when on sale rather than buy large and break down. Used to buy 1/2 beef or whole hog, but when it is not the best it is a lot to get through.

That is a very nice looking set up. I couldn't find an area open enough to justify owning one but would be so cool to have something like that. Do you leave it parked in your brothers safe, or take risks and take it home with you?

Don, do you have an infrared heat gun? I checked the air coming out of the ductwork at about 93* and the line coming from the heat pump to the air handler is around 110-115*

Fake grass for the dog, we tried that but our dog didn't like the smell or feel of the fake stuff. Lots of walks and trips to the dog park. Good thing is we are only in AZ for 4 months.

My wife has the furnace at 70 all winter when we are down there. Up here it is 71 or 72 depending on how wet it is outside.

Well since Lake Mohave, Lake Mead, and Havasu all have infestations of Quagga mussels our boating is going to be a pain when we head back home next spring from AZ. Will need to have an inspection and hot water power wash of the boat and trailer by Arizona Fish and Wildlife. The inspection includes the boat, trailer, all the fishing gear, life jackets, boots, fish boxes, live wells, wash down pumps and hoses, thru hull fittings, ropes, and anything else that was in or near the water. I should miss the California inspection stations with a bit of luck, but when I get to the Oregon boarder another inspection at the very least, and they could even take the boat away for a week in quarantine and  another power washing before I can pass through their State. I don't want to infest any lakes with the darn mussels, but reading up on the fresh water quagga mussels, they don't do well at all in a salt water environment, or left out of the water for a few weeks.

You will be shocked when you open it up and see how much isn't there. When that was built, weight was a big issue, they really skimped when building them. Special use? Closet space isn't much to start with so I wouldn't want to loose what there is. Lots more room to work with if you had a larger camper to start with.
  I used an 8ft camper as a hunting camp years ago. Also had a couple tents set up for cooking and sleeping. Four guys with a weeks worth of stuff just wouldn't fit inside that little camper.

Are you just looking for a change or are there problems now. Brave man for taking on a camper rebuild. When they put those smaller campers together, All the companies use about the same floor plan because there just is not enough room to do much else.

I wouldn't think the fire would be burning at such a high rate, but you are heating a lot of area, and it is cold outside. 180* water seems high. What temps did the sales guy say you should be shooting for?

That's impressive, especially for a home that size.

Only took a 1/2 a cord of wood a day to do it too!  :shocked:



I would hope Don will keep good records of wood burn and share that information with us.
Once he gets some logs dried out and starts loading them into the stove, burn time should increase. Maybe then he will keep good numbers to share with the group.

Once you get good dry wood for it to eat, you might want to clean the exhaust piping. If you have much build up it can cut down on the draft's ability to keep a good burn going. On my wood stove, if the exhaust builds to much junk, it curls toward the center of the pipe cutting down on draft ability. Either that or get a darn good chimney fire going and burn it out. Don't think anything is close enough to be hurt from that.

Dave, Looks like you need waterproof leggings too and  stay out of water deeper than the boots are high. Gore-Tex is a wonderful thing up here in wet country :wink: If those boots are waterproof and leaking you need to give them back for a new pair. Low heat with that boot dryer is better on the leather than higher heat.

Don, I hope things are getting warmer for you now. I had a propane heater installed in my garage this fall. It hangs from the ceiling and it sure is nice to have better heating in there. It looks a lot like the unit you installed in your garage except for the water lines. Once you get a bunch of stockpiled wood that can dry before you use it you should be golden with that setup. I would caution you though to not be putting the fire wood right next to the house or in the garage, the bugs could eat you up.
