    Outdoor Magazines. Is it just me?

    I used to get Backpacker magazine when it actually had good articles on trips in the US, but it soon went to bucket list trips to far away places and tons of adds. I finally dropped it when it added a strong political slant that I did not agree with. I still pick it up at the magazine isle from time to time but it still is not worth getting. At least for me anyway. I also agree with the silly home finding shows. Maybe I was just in a different boat, but our first house in our early 20's (1994) was in the $40,000 range. And that was a little bit of a stretch. Of course that was 25 years ago. My son is getting ready to buy one for around $100,000 so I guess times have changed.

    What are you reading right now?

    Andrew Kaplan - Scorpion Winter. Pretty good book. I didn't realize that he wrote the Homeland series also.

    Dutch oven cooking videos

    I am a novice dutch oven cook but I ran across some good videos today from a youtube channel titled "Outdoor cooking with Al". He seems like a pretty normal guy and had some fairly simply dishes that I will definitely try in the near future when camping. Sadly I wasted most of the cold, rainy afternoon watching most of them. That said, does anyone know of any other channels / sites that are worth giving a look related to outdoor cooking? Thanks,
  6. My wife and I laughed at this article. What a sad statement on the liberal mind set. One interesting thing that was left out was black on black gun crime. He mentions white on white and white on black but where was the biggest one of all. Also, was this for legally owned guns only. What about all those guns in the south side of Chicago and other areas that are used in black on black crimes where they are not legally allowed to own them?

    Property line legal question

    I am a land surveyor so the next line will seem very biased. NEVER buy property without a current survey. It amazes me that people will buy property valued at over 100,000 dollars and pay on it for 30 years and not find out exactly what they own and or if there are any issues. So I obviously suggest that you get the property surveyed and see where you stand. Keep in mind that the building could be on you property but if there is an easement along the line and it is on it, you could "lose" it later if a utility needs to fix an existing line under it. If it is a platted lot it is simpler to verify what you are buying. If it is unplatted and is just described in a deed you really need to know what you are buying. We had a job in Vonore where a guy from Florida bought what he thought was 60+ acres iper the listed acreage stated at the end of the deed as "60 acres more or less" that ended up being only around 35 acres when surveyed per the description in the deed. To make it even worse is that he paid the seller a per acre price. Worst case scenario I know but you get the picture.

    Fly Eagles Fly! Long time fan.
  9. Here a couple shots of my wife shooting on our property and one of my son shooting at a charity sporting clay shoot in the fall. I was also shooting both times. :-)
  10. Last weekend I built a storage box for our steel targets, paper targets, clays, tape, stapler, trashcan, etc. I was tired of having to carry everything down the driveway for an afternoon of shooting. Plus after multiple trips and about a half mile total walking (half back up the hill), it was a little hard to hit the target until the heart rate slowed down. The box is 2' x 2' x 2.2' and is made of the barn siding that you can buy at Lowes and should last many years. I say that since I built a dog house 10 years ago from the stuff and it still looks new.
  11. I joined up and added a few posts but I noticed you don't have a general gear and accessories sub forum. I saw the EDC one but no general one unless I missed it.

    What did y'all get for Christmas thread :0)

    New Boyd's stock for my Marlin. It really looks nice and is so much better than the plastic stock that came with the gun. A nice gun belt for when I someday try IDPA, Stephen Hunter books and a few other odds and ends.
  13. $1000 Lego set shattered all over the yard. Yikes!

    Netflix series

    Are the books different than the show? I like the show and was hoping the books were different stories and not just each episode in book form.

    TWD Season 8

    Hmmm....... no posts on this season in awhile. I liked Daryl toward the end of the last show. Stop playing with the bad guys I say. ;-)
