  1. A little levity in an increasingly unleavened world 🌎 Not a shameless request for "likes" as per #10. Just spreading a little cheer.😄

We in Hendersen Nv visiting my daughter . 6/15/22 we are in Gallup NM . an observation of hiway traffic so far , I would guesstimate traffic at about 10% above pandemic days of shut down . trucks are working hard many packs on roads and every fuel stop with parking is loaded with trucks , Also miles of trains loaded with double stacked 40 ft containers ! So industry is moving but cars , pickups , Rv’s really noticeable , we counted five class A’s DP ‘s and about same in fifth wheels From Fresno to Gallup NM . Last year when we went to RPRU in Da Quoin we had to reserve RV parks head of time they were packed so far no problem .

  9. And that atrocity is appropriated at every turn, and it's untrue, and it's disgusting. There was one Hitler. Neither George Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump nor Joe Biden are Hitler, but I've heard that comparison over and over in my adult life. Such a description is lazy, false and a sure sign of an intellectual lightweight.

  14. I have a couple family pieces a a few I’ve purchased. I prefer the smooth surface personally. Bought the wife some enameled cast at a Lodge store a few years back. It has served us well. Have a couple Dutch ovens and a few pans. Griswold, Victor, Wagner. Have a 13 gallon kettle for cooking chili or chowder (regional name) over a fire. Clean new dirty stuff with pure lye in water and let soak for 2 weeks. After that I warm up to 400° in oven and coat with Crisbee Puck. Leave in at 400° for 30-45min, repeat a total of 3 times. Do this when the wife is not home as the smoking from the oven is bad at times. When finished I rub down with table salt until dry. I will wash lightly after use and clean off heavy with a chain mail scrubber that is made for cast iron. I like taking a rotten looking pan and making it look new.

  19. My Dad passed 9 years ago and I think about him often. I'll share what I wrote after he passed to be read at his funeral. It's a private/personal letter but I don't mind sharing with you all. I read back through it and it still stirs up emotion. A Son’s Perspective I think all little boys grow up idolizing their fathers. I was no different and my dad was my hero! He could fix anything, had superhuman strength, and knew everything. As a young kiddo I followed him around everywhere and we worked on all kinds of things together. My dad taught me most of what I know about life. He taught me to ride a bike, and then later a mini dirt bike. He taught me to shoot, how to hunt, how to fish (although the fishing never took), and taught me how to drive anything that had wheels. He taught me the value of hard work, and that anything worth doing is worth doing right. He taught me to think ahead, and use my head more than my back. He taught me that if you treated others with respect and worked hard people would, in return, respect you. He taught me that some things are worth fighting for and that while I shouldn’t ever start a fight, if I found myself in one I had better win. He taught me a love for nature and a love for the land. He taught me to respect Mother Nature and to marvel at her awe. I do not have to look very far to see my father. All I really have to do is look in the mirror. He is with me always because I am partly him, and sometimes more like him than I would like to admit. I want to be like his good qualities. My dad was a kind man. I have personally watched him do things for others out of kindness when he thought no one else was looking. He was a firm man. He knew what he believed in, and he stood firmly by that. He could be a hard man, and was at times the most stubborn person I have ever met. That said, he had a soft side that he didn’t often let others see. My dad loved his family and he loved his farm. He loved my mother. He loved her with all of his heart, and while they may have argued here and there, he always respected her. He wouldn’t stand for anyone ever putting her down or not treating her right. He loved his kids too. I think he had a hard time expressing it, but I never doubted how he felt. He and I argued and didn’t always see eye to eye, but even in some of our biggest fights I always knew he was still my dad and I could always come back home. I always got a kick out of how he dealt with some of the farm animals. They were all pets to him and you could tell having the animals was something he really enjoyed. He was so kind hearted with animals that if we were ever going to butcher one, he’d have me put the animal down as he just didn’t have the heart to do it himself. Dad never met a dog he didn’t like. Someone could have the biggest meanest dog, and dad would be loving on him and petting him within a matter of minutes. One his most cherished dogs was Sam, and him and my father were inseparable. Dad never really was a church going man, but I know he loved and feared the Lord. Dad knew and understood that he wasn’t in charge and that there was a higher power that was. I think John 3:16 sums up how I know my dad is now with his family in Christ. The last couple years of dad’s life have been tough. Dementia set in and it quickly took its toll. Prior to him becoming sick though dad and I went from being father and son to more like buddies. After I graduated college dad and I had a totally different relationship. I got to see my dad in a whole other light, and I am so thankful for the time I had with him. We had several adventures together usually involving some kinds of tractor, but we got to spend a lot of time doing something we both enjoyed. My dad has been a force to be reckoned with for me my entire life. He has always been there when I needed him. I can’t count the phone calls we had back and forth when I didn’t know how to do something or I needed advice. I can’t count the number of events he attended with me as a child for support. He has been a constant source for encouragement, advice, and direction since the day I was born. To say I’m going to miss my dad would be an understatement. In a lot of ways I feel lost without him. But I know that he will be with me always in spirit and the life lessons he tried so hard to instill upon me. I can only hope he is as proud of me, as I was to be his son. Until we meet again dad I will try my best to honor your memory and I understand that God probably needed some stuff fixed in Heaven and needed his best man for the job. I love you, and I will miss you! You’re loving son, Bryan

  20. Ok fellas, new thread for more random stuff, here’s some pics of that John Deere king pin all fixed up and ready to go. No we see if he shows uP with the cash... Also working on the old ‘75 Harley. She’s got a strange noise which I first thought was the kick starter ratchet however the noise is still present while in gear with the clutch in (transmission not spinning now). It’s intermittent and seems to be only present while just off idle. The bike sat near 18 years so I thought maybe surface rust on the crankshafts roller bearings might be the issue. I pulled the tappet oil screen, it’s clean, pulled the oil bag filter and put a magnet in the dirty side, got a few little metallic flecks (pic below) but nothing real bad. Checked end play and vertical play. Seems the manual specs a little end play (which seems odd for tapered roller bearings) but I bet they do this so when the aluminum crank cases get hot and expand, the preload becomes correct? I’ve never been that deep into a Harley shovel head before... I think I’ll pull the cam Cover next as the noise seemed louder at the oil pump (near the cam cover) and all the serious workings are over there also (cam, followers, rotary breather and oil/scavenge pump... any suggestions from the Harley fellas are welcome!

  24. On the night of November 9, 1938, Nazi para-military units stormed into the Jewish sections of German cities, kicked down doors, smashed windows, burned down buildings, and eventually rounded up 30,000 Jewish men and sent them off to concentration camps. This night was the first step in Adolf Hitler’s final solution which resulted in over 6 million Jewish people slaughtered in concentration camps. It was called The Night of Broken Glass because the following morning the streets of these cities were littered in broken glass from the many store and house windows that had been shattered the night before. https://www.objectivityistheobjective.com/post/the-night-of-the-broken-glass

  29. Camping this weekend, so i am not there at the moment. That cook stove is best suited for use at the deep end of a mooring chain. It was a “gift” from my FIL which is his way of pawning useless junk off without throwing it away. The last of his “gifts” I flatly refused, he gives it to us, then it’s forever, he's a hoarder and has run out of room so he's trying to continue his collection in this manner.

  31. Mine aren’t as pretty as some of yours. i am contemplating sanding the big one and see how i like it. the flat one I bought because believe it or not it is lighter than the griddle I built for my 424 Coleman stove. It fits on nicely. I also have a lodge Dutch oven a friend’s dad gave me, he had cleaned and seasoned it after getting it in a yard sale. No idea what he seasoned it with, it looked good but smelled rancid. I used it once for a shepherd’s pie , pie tasted like the pan smelled and i had to throw the whole mess away. i want to clean it somehow, maybe the lye deal, and try again. what is the consensus on oil? I use a lot of olive oil in my daily cooking. the hanging ones are mostly Le Creuset. There is a stray little non stick pan in there though .

  34. Got a couple cast pans, I always try to keep them in good condition, don't have a missus to mess them up but I do a good enough job myself sometimes. I took the time to sand out my Lodge Dutch oven, make it smooth and re-season. Made it a better pan in my opinion, but to each there own. One thing I tried, and it surprised me. Bought one of those Copper Chef (as seen on tv) coated fry pans a couple years ago, and haven't really looked back. You really can fry cheese in one and it doesn't stick. I haven't found a way to destroy one yet, my oldest is 5 yrs old now.

  43. Regardless of license requirements, BELIEVE the trailer ratings. Axle rating says 7000lbs, you better believe that's the MOST you want to put on it if you plan on hauling any distance and expect long term reliability. Especially when these trailers get a little age on them. Especially especially in the "rust belt" if you tow the trailer in the winter. These commercially built trailers tend to be built using a poor steel alloy that is susceptible to rust, and the cheapest components that they can source.

  44. How do you like that Morris MP chisel plow? My old Morris 7-31 is getting worn out and needs replacement. Looked at the earliest wheat field today. Seeded May 23 and I like it. Not bad for weeds at all so far. Also parked by my last field of canola and surprised to see how good the emergence is and how much is up.

  45. Pretty much, yeah. When the stars align just right... What you'll notice is that over time it will become less and less intermittent. Eventually it will stop moving in TA, then shortly after, it will stop moving in direct, and you'll need a new TA. Nothing you can do about it but ride it out or proactively replace the TA.
