Good pair of ear muffs are your ears best friend. I wear hearing aids, shooting without muffs most likely the cause. Even with the aids I have a hard time hearing and the ringing never stops.

That is true Don if the pond is deep enough and the fish stay out of the top water. My pond area is a composite stock trough maybe 2.5ft deep and the heron stood at the top and picked off the fish when they came toward the surface.

All those rocks along the top of the pond will give the heron and other fish eating birds a place to stand. I tried fish in our small waterfall pond and the birds kept the fish sellers in business. I managed to relocate a couple heron but the neighbor and sheriff decided I wouldn't be shooting any more of them.

I was really surprised that our new place up there hit *102 last week. That's pretty hot for the panhandle area me thinks, especially when it was in the upper *90s here.

Yes it was hot up there Ken. Spent 3 days in the area last week. That is some very nice country for sure and that new mini will surely help the looks of your new place.

Hey Don, guess I should have known that  :facepalm: . Was thinking you might be setting up for a training school or? Poor RV site is still in my mind as I was almost trapped with no way out a couple weeks ago.

here is a picture not to scale of what I was trying to propose/recommend



I would agree with the concept, however before you start developing a small camping site, you do need to think about pull through or back in sites. Pull throughs don't need as much road width or free movement area to get into or out of. 30 Amp sites wouldn't cost nearly as much to run power but the bigger campers would suffer in the summer as you can't run both air conditioners on 30 amps. 30 AMP needs hot, neutral, and ground where as 50 AMP needs two hot, a neutral, and a ground. 50 AMP is two 50amp circuits where 30 amp is only one30 amp so wire size would be larger with the 50's. Site size needs to be large enough to open slides on both sides of the camper and long enough to accept larger trailers/5th wheels. The road  into out of doesn't need to be level but the pads should be close to level side to side and not too far off end to end. With back in sites you would only need one road but the rigs need room to move into out of the sites. More angle means less room needed to back into the site. Younger guys there for training could get by with a tent and an outhouse, older guys like me and a few others would need the full meal deal if longer than a couple days.

So my question is........why are you trying to kill yourself when you can rent stuff like this?!?!?!?!

https://www.sunbeltrentals.com/equipment/detail/1225/0440098/stair-climber-1500lb/

Why not just hire the safe sales place to move it for you, less to worry about and they know what they can  and  can not do?

good luck man, I know my new safe (National Safe ) was all two guys could handle from the truck through the garage into the wreck room. After all was said and done, it looks nice either from the room or outside looking in. If it is druggy, they want it now, so will move along to the neighbor hopefullyr, if not, well they would find it anyway.

Charles, that is exactly why were at the vets today. As long as she is not suffering I don't think I could put her down. At this point I can still afford the meds and vet bill so until things change she will be with us. Subjects like this do turn into a deep hole for sure and I for one will not go there.


Living on a half acre lot which has only a very few trees a mill is not in my plans. There are mills around that can be brought in to saw some stuff if needed or wanted.

Sorry Shawn but I am with Dave on this one. My wife and I are watching our little dog of 13 years suffer with leaking heart valve and water on the lungs from it. Just today was back at the vet getting an updated meds intake for her. Tears me up, a friend sent this to us today.

Pulled the Trailer up to our Canal lot for a few days. Heading back from Hoodsport to the lot, crossing a very narrow bridge, an oncoming Dodge pu got too close to or over the centerline and took out my outside mirror with his mirror. 700 dollars for new mirror,  and some lost blood from fighting with the door panel, all is good again. I wish those Dodge guys would pull in the mirrors when they weren't towing.

Can't you rig a long line on the go handle of the splitter. You then could get out of the path of flying chain or hot oil from broken lines. If you win the container ends up where you wanted it and you get an I told you so moment. :beercheers:

Hum...What would Don do..Stay away from that and all should be good.
Well, not so quick there Tonto!

I'd take a run at it with the rubber track loader and it would move as far as I wanted!

But that contraption Tex is talkin' about sounds like it would work, but we'd need a vid just in case it didn't! ;-))



Now that is what I am talking about. Two rubber tracks laying in the woods and Don scratching his head wondering what went wrong.

I sure would like to see the action, don't think one truck will move it unless it is tied to a tree with a wrecker between the truck and the load. BUT I am from Washington so just need to see it on video to believe it.

and why cant your tractor not push it back the foot or 2 that you need?

if you place the bucket on the bottom frame portion of the container you should be good?  just go slow and don't ram anything?

if all else fails, give boone a call and see if he can come down with something?



Getting to close to what Don would do....

I think it would work, even if you had to set up a double pull with wire rope. Protect the tree bark too unless it is history after the move.
Added: Call in a friend with a good sized winch on their truck. Rig it up and be done.

Tate, just brushed on butter, lemon juice, and  pepper. Kept the temp down and let it fester long enough to get the corn finished. Of all the salmon, I really like the sockeye.

Bob I not only follow the law I respect my neighbors. We are in the country and it?s entirely legal. And we were done by 10pm. 

But just in case there were stray dogs or other nefarious creatures I was carrying my G23 and an extra mag.

Armed neighbors are polite neighbors.

I don't even know what nefarious means but here those fireworks were not legal and it was well past midnight, and our little dog was not doing all that well, and I was still all done with them.  I just might have been carrying also, not that it would have mattered. Polite neighbors would have been done before midnight.

Was that you at 1:30AM behind our place. I was close to walking over and making you a deal " if you stopped now I wouldn't call the law." A few years ago I would have just tried to stop you myself but time has made me both smarter and less able.

I just bought a 50 amp 25ft extension cord for the trailer and there was nothin cheap about it. But never bought a welding cord so don't know. If needed I would just buy enough wire to install another plug so you didn't need to be changing back and forth.

Nice to have a larger compressor in the fall when it is time to blow out sprinkler lines. I have a 220 unit but our friends only have a smaller 120 model. Takes most of the day to blow their lines out. They have 2.5 acres and water most of it so lots of line to blow out.
