  1. And another big caribou
  2. Been real bad here for fires, had one burn 35k acres just out of town. More fires burning out of town, like these
  3. Back at work, up in the Arctic had some visitors at camp this morning

    Lol. When the wife bought a horse she was being led down this path by some of the others. Lots of gals doing Dressage. We had a major course correction real quick. We kept our horses like the livestock they were, and from that point they could pamper the critters all they wanted. We avoided the Golden Corral syndrome.
  5. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
  6. Be patient, and good luck.
  7. Those work very well, and last a long time. We have some of them for welding, stout and useful FYI, they will break,
  8. Thank you gents, what a year it was, seems like they get faster as we go
  9. Hm. Quit wearing Levi’s when the leg seams would twist around my leg. Quality had been dropping, the move offshore, and I had enough. I have been wearing Carhart for years since. Now they are getting cheap and discontinuing the carpenters jeans I wear (I like the heavy denim, single layer, and the leg pocket for my phone). Main reason I went to carhart was the 100% cotton jeans, shirts, and turtlenecks. Welding for a living it really helps to not melt your clothes to your body. Now all the new models are synthetic mixed cloth or not very well made for a construction worker. So when I bought my last jeans they were wranglers, but they are to thin and I am not very impressed. Some of the guys at work are talking about 1640 jeans, but they are way to expensive for me. I just don’t know which way is next. I am personally not impressed with Ariat, or some of the others. We shall see
  10. Most pumpers run a cleaning plug, it’s a sponge, through the line backwards. Some push it with water, but it cleans out the line,
  11. When she had horses we stacked on pallets under the car port tarp deals we bought on Craigslist, worked very well, just don let the snow build up
  12. There is a lot of good information here, and great ideas. I would just offer that what ever you do be factual. The old stories that were told to scare kids just made liars out of the parents, and then they ignored the rest of the deal.
  13. Everywhere is different, here we install drip irrigation lines and inject fertilizer as needed. If you have samples of the soil and the trees checked they will tell you exactly what is needed. Might surprise you want adding some minor nutrient to your crop will do
  14. Lol buddy of mine has a few welding machines, tools, and such. His wife was asking about it one day, his reply was something along the lines of they pay the rent, the mortgage, and the grocery bill so there can never be to many
  15. You might find that a steel line has better flow. Copper can be thicker walled and have a reduced area. By the time you put a 3/8 fuel hose, push in a barb, and all the rest, the center hole isn’t going to be much larger than 5/16 tubing. So what are you gaining? If this is your pulling rig and your not going to be farming with it you can drill out the center of the adapter fittings. Or even go larger on the carb inlet as for Swagelok, you might prefer buying plywood. It will be cheaper.
  16. I had the same issue with my new loader bucket on the B8200. I honed the hole very lightly and it worked
  17. I can see where varying the distance will mess it up. We had a set line and still had a poor average axes were dirt simple, but it’s all you need i guess
  18. We got 8 people for an hour for $100, and had a half hour of instruction before they started the time. been a cold spring, finally staying in the 50’s at night. Really hurt the flowers and everything is about three weeks behind here. If they don’t get a late fall things will not be good
  19. So get this, the government, in and effort to ensure all races are treated equal, makes every effort to quantify what race people are and doing what. Somewhere there is a building full of government employees that are tabulating data to see what percentage of who does what based on race. go ahead and check them all, see how it goes. It normally upsets the bureaucracy
  20. I rolled my eyes, but then we had fun. Guy was nice and taught the kids how. I wouldn’t have chosen it, but we might go back adding alcohol? That seems like a good way to be called stumpy
  21. Get some thicker paint, it helps me a lot
  22. Busy couple weeks. Came back from out of town. My wife had scheduled us to take out son out for his birthday. We went axe throwing and to the drive in at the drive in a few guys came in, just a few pictures had a great night, lots of fun. So my son tried knife throwing on his own today go figure.
