  4. Anything with ingredients I cannot pronounce. Seafood. Most vegetables. Anything containing gluten (allergic). Most forms of sugar. I am a total PITA to cook for, try to get to go out to eat with, and work has given up in trying to career anything in that I can/will eat. I'm a carnivore. I get my vegetables by eating vegetarians.

  5. I'm using a OnePlus One with cyanogenmod currently, but I have several nexus devices as well. Will be installing L on them next week. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for the replies and advise guys. The problem here is that I don't want a truck - I want a diesel 4x4 SUV capable of towing 10k. There's no option but an Excursion. 7.3 Excursions are pretty scarce and when you can find them they have 300k+ and while the motor may still be strong the rest of the vehicle is beat to hell. And since it's a magical 7.3, they think it's still worth 20+ thousand. I can get a 6.0 for a lot less in a lot better shape. I'm not opposed to the idea of dropping a 12v into it at some point down the road, but I simply don't have the time anymore to do it myself, and I don't want to have to do it first thing. All of which brings me back to the original questions. Is there a good diesel mechanic on the board, or one used by members of the board, in west tn (preferably near Memphis) who knows these motors who could talk costs, options, and things to look for when buying?

  7. I will be pulling the trigger in the next few weeks on a diesel excursion. I'm looking at several and there are a few nearby that have the options I'm looking for. I know a lot of people bad mouth the 6.0 but from what I understand if you are willing to put the money into them to bulletproof them they can be excellent engines. So my questions are, is there anything I should look out for when inspecting them, and are there any good mechanics on the board in west tn that can go over what all needs to be done and talk costs with me? The one I'm leaning towards right now is a bone stock '04 4x4 3.73 with 100k on it. I know I'll need to do some mods. If my research is right, I'd only have to worry about the head studs if the engine already has a problem - coolant leaks being the biggest symptom. Are there any experts here that can help me out?

    Republican Wave

    I don't see much difference between either party. They are all bought and paid for by the same corporate interests and are more interested in lining their pockets and promoting their image than in improving the lives of their constituents. There are individuals on both sides that may have good intentions, but.... I have little faith in any of them as a group to act in the best interest of the people. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  9. This. My sinuses used to lock up tight during allergy season. I could count on weeks of misery every year. In the three years since we went low carb and gluten free I might get a little stuffy for a couple of days, but nothing even worth taking OTC meds for.
  10. My next project. A while back I picked up a '60s era Kohler generator rated for 6.5kva. It was in pretty bad shape when I got it and sitting in my shed for a few years didn't help it any I'm sure, but I've decided I want to see what I can do with it. Interesting things about the L600 inline 4-cylinder for use as a generator are that it runs at 1800rpm and it's liquid cooled. In theory this should mean that it can run quieter than a more modern (non-inverter) generator. It also uses the generator has itself as a starter motor. If I can get it running I'm probably going to use it as a backup power source for my home - I need to see how practical it is. Right now it has no spark and the fuel pump is missing pieces so it has no fuel either. When hooked to a battery it turned over freely, had compression, and showed good oil pressure on the gauge. Current state: degreasing and getting years of crud and funk cleaned up so that I can begin working on it. I didn't think to take pics before I started cleaning - these are after an hour of spraying engine degreaser and scrubbing.
  11. Vacuum sealed with a -10 degree deep freeze here. Found a 3 year old pack of ground venison and a 4 year old hunk of tenderloin (I know, I know)... Both were fine. No freezer burn. No odd taste. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  12. Honestly, if you're wanting land, and will be working mostly from home and occasionally out of the wolfchase area, I'd look north along i40. Brownsville is just under an hour, and you'll get a lot more for your money out that way. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  13. Will you be working in the Wolfchase area? Or are you just looking to live near there? I live in Bartlett and work in south Memphis and my commute is 30-45 minutes on average with traffic. I'm looking out east towards Somerville/Fayette county and north up i40 for land currently. It'll push my commute out to over an hour each way, but... You cannot hunt or shoot in most of the incorporated parts Shelby county - which is most of Shelby county. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  14. I drive past this solar farm quite frequently. It and the one at Shelby Farms are on the TVA program for green power. The program is almost impossible to get into, but if you do manage the TVA pays something like 20+ cents per kilowatt hour during peak usage. At that rate you can turn a profit in under 5 years with the size arrays they are running. Solar currently has a bad ROI for homeowner/small business scale operations, but if you have the cash to go big it can be very profitable in addition to being one of the greenest ways to generate electricity, period. In this case they are not throwing our tax dollars away - this is a sound investment in our future imho.
