Matt,

Cruizng started a new thread here:  http://real-man-truckworks-and-survival.com/index.php?topic=3580.msg78377#msg78377  for us to post up our maladies. Stitches, surgeries, etc...

feel free to leave here or move over there, if you need assistance moving it over, just let me know and i can do that for you.

I thought I would start a thread where we could all show off our maladies. Stitches, surgeries, etc... I think we should see who can top who until we all scream TMI!

Only stipulation is...?... it has to be of your injury and not some craziness you pulled off the internet!  If you want to add what was don't to correct your issue, then that would be okay as well.

Someone like me that likes to have a place to lay wrenches, tool holders, Chuck's, bits, and a soft drink, during a job, would consider that shelf priceless. :toolazy

Oh no, I have to agree with Ken.  Tool table or drink spot is handy.

what I am trying to get at, is a few things.

1. have you sat down and actually sketched out exactly how you want the hide/farm/or whatever it is becoming now to be when complete?  just asking, as that's something that shouldn't be shared for the world to know.

2. I understand "YOUR" camper being where its at, because that is the only one down there and that is also serving double duty as a command center.  is it smart to have campers kind of just pulling up where ever and being scattered all over with no sort of organization?

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

Gutsy move, Mav...

Whys that?
Makin' that.

I remember the first time I ever ate it

I was a buck sergeant at Ft. Knox and this tall Texan Staff Sergeant came to us. We hit it off immediately and wasn't long before he had me over for dinner. He made that Carne lava mix. I remember sweating while I was eating it, then burning up later on when I was "sitting."

Ya I remember that stuff...

I actually kept strictly to the recipe and did not add any other heat source.  but then again, Hatch Chiles are not know for their Scoville heat level but more for their richness in flavor.

if I could figure out the pressure canning time, I would can some up for you and send it your way.

So think we figured my Mom’s issues last night. Her nurse came in at 3am to find her stats had dropped way off 70, they put two different machines on her to help bring them back up. Still couldn’t get her up past 90 & called Dr in. Keeping her at least another day and doing a sleep study, severe sleep apnea. Essentially she is breathing so shallow she can’t remove carbon dioxide, at 3 this morning she was out of it again. As they raised her stats she started coming back around. Explains her constant being tired, weight gain, incoherent at times etc. she’s not getting sleep & when she is it’s labored.

if thats the case, i pray she takes to the mask/machine

So for dinner tonight, I am attempting some Carne Adovada.  (I didn't add the cloves, because I am not a big clove kind of person)

*pictures of finished product will be posted later*

Braised New Mexico-Style Pork in Red Chile Sauce (Carne Adovada)

Why This Recipe Works:

To make carne adovada, a classic, ultrasimple New Mexican pork braise, we started by cutting boneless pork butt into large chunks and salting them (so that they would be well seasoned and retain moisture during cooking) while we prepared the chile sauce. We used a generous 4 ounces of dried red New Mexican chiles, which are fruity and relatively mild. But rather than toast them, as we often do with dried chiles, we simply steeped them in water to preserve their bright flavor. When they were pliable, we blended them with aromatics and spices (including garlic, oregano, cumin, cayenne, and cloves), as well as honey and white vinegar, to form a thick paste; then we added some of the soaking water to form a smooth puree. We tossed the pork with the puree in a Dutch oven and then braised it in a low oven until the meat was very tender.

Ingredients

Pork butt roast is often labeled Boston butt. For an accurate measurement of boiling water, bring a full kettle of water to a boil and then measure out the desired amount. If you can't find New Mexican chiles, substitute dried California chiles. Dried chiles should be pliable and smell slightly fruity. Kitchen shears can be used to cut them. If you can't find Mexican oregano, substitute Mediterranean oregano. Letting the stew rest for 10 minutes before serving allows the sauce to thicken and better coat the meat. Serve with rice and beans, crispy potatoes, or flour tortillas with shredded lettuce and chopped tomato, or shred the pork as a filling for tacos and burritos.

-1 (3.5- to 4-pound) boneless pork butt roast, trimmed and cut into 1?-inch pieces
-4 ounces dried New Mexican chiles, wiped clean, stemmed, seeded, and torn into 1-inch pieces
-4 cups boiling water
-2 tablespoons honey
-2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
-5 garlic cloves peeled
-2 teaspoons dried Mexican oregano
-2 teaspoon ground cumin
-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
-1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

This is where I ordered the Hatch NM Chiles from, and yes I got all three levels and used a mixture of all three in this dish:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JMJTJO2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Instructions

1. Toss cut up pork and 1 tablespoon salt together in bowl; refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. Place chiles in medium bowl. Pour boiling water over chiles, making sure they are completely submerged, and let stand until softened, 30 minutes. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees.

3. Drain chiles and reserve 2 cups soaking liquid (discard remaining liquid). Process chiles, honey, vinegar, garlic, oregano, cumin, cayenne, cloves, and 1 teaspoon salt in blender until chiles are finely ground and thick paste forms, about 30 seconds. With blender running, add 1 cup reserved liquid and process until smooth, 1? to 2 minutes, adding up to ? cup additional reserved liquid to maintain vortex. Add remaining reserved liquid and continue to blend sauce at high speed, 1 minute longer.

4. Combine pork and chile sauce in Dutch oven, stirring to make sure pork is evenly coated. Bring to boil over high heat. Cover pot, transfer to oven, and cook until pork is tender and fork inserted into pork meets little to no resistance, 2 to 2? hours.

5. Using wooden spoon, scrape any browned bits from sides of pot and stir until pork and sauce are recombined and sauce is smooth and homogeneous. Let stand, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Serve with lime wedges. (Leftover pork can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.)

Technique: Blending Chiles Into a Smooth Puree
To ensure that the tough skins on dried New Mexican chiles break down as thoroughly as possible in the blender, start by adding 1 cup of liquid?just enough to create a vortex while leaving enough friction to grind down the solids. Once the chiles are finely ground and the puree is smooth, blend in the remaining liquid.

how many are you thinking of putting in?
One of each near the shed and maybe the same at a different location nearby

Depends on how I add in electrical power on the off grid system

Have a very cool power generation system coming up as a cold weather project...

is there a spot just a little ways from that whole area that you could flatten out, drop a little gravel, run a few electrical lines and maybe some sort of a sewer tank system?  basically make a spot for campers that is just away from the main area as to not clutter it up ?

I think, if memory serves me correctly, that the F-105 Thunderchief "Thud" is the only USAF fighter to have been retired solely due to combat loses.

Not only did they bomb, but check out the "Wild Weasel" mission those guys flew.

dave, here is the FMCSA website.  this is the federal regulation that covers what we are talking about, but it is not a catch all and remember that states can "add to but not take away from" the FMCSA regulations.

https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/

Nate, for the Record it wasn?t jacka** truck drivers as much as it is owners who were pushing the boundaries to make extra money. Regardless of what we did or were instructed to do my salary and our drivers never made more.

& I realize what you were saying, just a clarification.

Like was stated, best bet is not to pull company equipment with personal truck. Again I understand been there done that too.

you are correct shawn, a majority of the drivers in that profession are/were honest.  just like anything/anywhere else you are going to have your bad folks. 

I truly feel bad for the DOT industry, because for decades there was not a lot of oversight and or things put into place to prevent such tragedies from happening, and then all of a sudden there is too much oversight/over stepping of bounds by the feds.

Dave, the newer DOT rules are a bit fuzzy to me and I?m sure someone who deals with it often will clear it up. I do know that our 1 ton dually trucks hooked to a 25k GN we?re viewed as a semi and required a cdl (again fuzzy as I cannot recall the class if it was A or B etc). I?m guessing the 22k is combined, probably makes a difference on 3/4 ton versus 1 ton too.

The other thing is your truck is personally owned and their are rules that go along with that as well. For instance my personal 1 ton could pull my personal enclosed GN but the company owned truck could not pull that same GN without the required CDL even by owner of company of said truck.

And part of the reason this is fuzzy is that when the new DOT rules came thru & after getting pinched a couple times we hired and outside consulting firm who specialized in such matters to help fight the fines and get us in compliance. So her and my secretary / records keeper worked on this a lot more than I.

It will vary state to state also. But as Sean said, personal vs commercial towing is looked at diff in many states. POV with a company trailer on the clock would be commercial.

GVW is truck and trailer with the proper hitch and tires. I do not think the stock hitch/bumper on our trucks will handle what the truck can pull.


Shawn and JR hit the nail on the head.  if you are pulling personaly then you are not subject to as many strick rules as you are commercially. 


dave, here is the reality of that accident: 

- That truck is is going to be gone over with a fine tooth comb and everthing that is found to be wrong or broken a fine will be issued,

- every piece of paperwork that goes with that truck will be processed, every maintenance record will be processed,

- every pre-trip and post trip inspection will be processed,

- every ounce of weight that that truck was carrying will be processed,

- that drivers breath and blood will be processed,

- that drivers medication whether perscribed or over the counter will be processed,

-if that driver has a CPAP machine they will process the data card of that machine,

- that drivers residency status will be processed,

- that drivers language will be processed


and in the end, "IF" (and thats a big "IF") that vehicle and driver pass everything, the driver will most likely still be deamed at fault.  why you ask?  because DOT laws are written by worthless oxygen thieves who either go to work everyday in their prius (cars are known as 4 wheelers) or on a bus and have no concept of what it is that they are trying to make a law about..........let alone all of the years where JACKASS MORON truck drivers willingly and blatantly broke the law just to make and extra $$$!  but in general, the trucking industry has done a good portion of this to themselves.

my recommendation to you would be to STOP PULLING WORK TRAILERS with your privately owned truck and use the company trucks.

you are your first line of safety, if something is not safe and you do it anyways then you are the only one to blame when something goes wrong or breaks.
