Don, the train museum in Sacramento is worth the stop if you get into JR's area

Don, your family has a lot on the plate right now and the wrestling thing  is not one of them to be worrying about.

Charles, is that the only man door into the garage other from inside the home? We don't have a man door into the garage down here and I sure miss having one.

Hope your mom is ok after the surgery. It can take a lot out of the older person but they usually bounce back.

Lots of years driving snow plows. Used to set the wing windows to force outside air across the windshield but those can't be had anymore. Now I just find a place to get off the road till the roads are clear. Good luck on finding an area to set up for your needs and getting out of California.

JR, try to keep the heat off the windshield when driving in snow and cold temps. Run a little bit of heat on the floor to keep from being too cold but keep the windshield cool as possible. This will help keep the wipers and window from freezing the melted snow and causing a big mess. If you start fogging up, open a window or just throw cold air at it from the blower motor. :beercheers:

Strike 2 or 3 maybe, 2nd junk yard across street had a 500 but motor was locked up tight...



Doesn't mean the engine can't be rebuilt. If it has been in the yard a long time exposed to the elements it could be locked up just because. And it is only across the street, make a deal with the guy it could turn into a good place for parts.

Took the boat out on Lake Mohave and really enjoyed the day. The engine pod was dry when I took out the drain plug after the day on the water. The sealing of the inspection plate must have taken care of that problem.
After looking more for the water in the bilge problem, I found a thru hull fitting, just above water line, that  didn't have anything attached to it. Contacted the boat dealer, found out how to get into the area,  found the drain hose from a storage bin in the bow area wasn't attached to the thru hull fitting. The hose was just laying next to the fitting. Need to pick up a stainless hose clamp, and attach the hose. Hopefully this will take care of the problems I am having with water intrusion. Everything else is working great, very happy and ready to start doing some fishing for the striper bass.

I do think it would be a mistake to underestimate them. People with a fanatical ideology are unpredictable and unstable and prone to violence. Walk softly but be prepared to respond with overwhelming force.



Send in the Feds. They can pick a person they know can't pay for an attorney, get a judge to sign off on a questionable  warrant. When that person refuses to spy on the group in question let the feds respond with overwhelming force. That is the American way after all.

The sewer hose won't like the metal tube and protest with holes which will leak out the black water. I have gone to the Rhino hose that retracts and fits inside a fabric zippered container. Yes a bit more expensive than the ones that are what they are but sure is nice not having leaks after a few months of riding and rubbing inside a metal tube.

CIEMR / Re: Get it off your chest / whats bothering you
« on: January 29, 2019, 02:43:01 PM »
I agree but... If everyone drove to the end of the lane and took turns merging things would be a lot smoother than all the movements that take place for the 1/4 mile before the lane ends slowing the left lane to a crawl and causing tempers to flare. I think concrete barriers, not just barrels or cones, between the two lanes from some point all the way down to the merge area would be a good traffic flow improvement,  keep both lanes moving at about the same pace, and just maybe keep the jerks in both lanes under control. Now the person that pays no attention to traffic at the on ramp and causes stop and go conditions should have to go to driver training.

« on: January 29, 2019, 02:00:50 PM »
The signs say "lane ends merge left" The driver in that lane does in fact have to merge in front of some one right? As long as they are trying to merge safely, why not let them in?

Ken, bend a couple coat hangers, handle with a 90* bend and a foot or so straight wire. Hold them straight out in front of you and depending on how you hold them they will either cross or turn away from each other following the path of the pipe. Set a steel bar or water pipe on the ground and give it a try before you discount it as witchcraft. I have found culvert pipes under the road, water lines, phone cables, tools lost in the grass and even a small gold nugget and dowsed two water wells. I am not into ghost hunting and other dark side stuff so can not and will not speak to those practices. Don't know how or why they work but they sure do.

Ken, sounds like you need to pick up a couple brass rods and start witching the area before digging. I don't think the one-call would have helped much since most were not utility owned stuff.

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.

« on: January 12, 2019, 07:53:56 PM »
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.

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.
