  1. Sorry, I believe that would be my fault with post #3.
  2. The loss in grain production will be offset by the increased pressure from the greenies to reduce the public consumption of grain fed livestock. Better start liking that lab grown meat and veggie burgers.
  3. Johnny B will be at the station as long as Johnny B wants to be there IMO. No offense to Dan or Pamela, but I don't think either one is a good choice for that spot, just a personal preference. I know by no means that he is ready or capable at this point, but his son Campbell that he did the Podgoats podcast with wants to get into the "industry".
  4. Several weeks ago they had a guy named Brad Staggs fill in for a week or so and he did a good job IMO. He currently does a podcast called The Daily MoJo. I don't remember the details, but Brad and Phil had a previous work connection I believe. I'm going to miss Phil on my 50-60 minute drive home commute. Been listening to him for almost 20 years. RIP Uncle Phil
  5. For those short on time and therefore unable to read the response letter to the ATF, I can summarize the letter for you in three words, "go pound sand"...
  6. Yeah, ditto what Greg said, you need to practice on what you'll be riding, Just take it slow and you'll be fine, Though with a bike that nice, I'd stay out of tight single track trails, etc. if it were me.
  7. Based on Mr Rotten's intel of the triple axle, that puts it in the highest size/weight category I believe. It's almost a guarantee he was over the GVWR for a F250. That one bites a bunch of folks in the butt since everyone seems to focus on the towing capacity. From what I've heard, if you have an accident, they're going to check, and if you're over the GVWR, it's a pretty good chance your insurance claim gets denied.
  8. Beat me to it. It's one thing to put your life at risk doing stupid stuff like that, but it's inexcusable to endanger other folks. Based on the description of the toy hauler, I'd be willing to bet that a F250 is undersized for the load.
  9. Did y'all know that contrary to popular belief, a one legged duck does not swim in circles.
  10. Not my quote but it seems appropriate. "The best things in life are the people you love, the places you go together, and the memories you make.
  11. Nice looking ride. When does the "Now, a bike for mom" get posted? Get her one and that qualifies you guys as a gang, I believe.
  12. Before the days of Covid you could've asked him to let you double on the back.
  13. One Year After and The Final Day.
  14. I added a doorbell camera to my security system and got several benefits from it. I then added several outside cameras so I could see when someone comes on our property. Totally sold on the benefit of having them. Regardless of whether it could be used to determine who a criminal is, it allows you to see who is on your property, who just rang your doorbell, what just got delivered and whether the person treated the package properly, when someone you're expecting has arrived, when someone is around your house at night, check from work if it's actually raining at your house and will be able to mow when you get home, etc. Basic all around early warning system.
  15. Whenever I show stuff like this to my wife, the usual response is a question. What are you 12? But I show her anyway. If the shoe fits...
  16. Do you already have a overall home security system? Having systems that are compatible with each other makes life much easier than having a bunch of different apps to use. Some folks don't plan ahead well and end up with a home security system, outside cameras, video doorbell, etc. and none interface with each other.
  17. At least for me, after adding the red dot, it was twice as fun to shoot and much more accurate. YMMV.
  18. You know what they say... Pics or it didn't happen.
  19. I got a .40 cal version about 2 years ago. I wanted a .40 because I wanted a little more power than the 9mm plus I had plenty of ammo. I ended up adding a red dot because my eyes didn't agree with the "scout" rear sight position. I also changed out the mag release button because the stock one sucks. Overall I like the rifle and would purchase again.
  20. I wouldn't know anything about that but have I ever told you guys about the time that I was flying with Brian Williams in a helicopter over in Iraq? I think the year was 2003, we were taking enemy fire and forced to land. Brian and I barely made it out alive....
  21. Yes, I was specifically referencing international shipping for DHL. I believe they are the preferred shipper for most European countries from what I've seen. They are based out of Germany.
  22. Just for reference if you have to deal with an International shipment, DHL is awesome based on my past experiences. My latest shipment through them was from Estonia and I got it either 3 or 4 days (back last year so I don't remember for sure). The speed at which it was traveling across Europe prior to getting on a plane was impressive. The shipping charge was around $23 USD.
  23. Where there's a will there's a way... when you have a dire need. Link below, but in summary a 10 lane bridge (I-35W St. Anthony Falls Bridge) crossing the Mississippi River up in Minnesota was constructed in less than a year due to the collapse of the old bridge. Bridge construction started 10/30/07 Bridge opened 9/18/08 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I-35W_Saint_Anthony_Falls_Bridge#:~:text=Minneapolis%2C Minnesota%2C U.S.&text=The I-35W Saint Anthony,collapsed on August 1%2C 2007.
  24. Not that I agree with the drastic increase in gas prices around these shortages, etc., I heard an explanation a couple of years ago that makes sense, at least in my mind. Gas stations set their prices based on what they will have to pay to refill their storage tanks, not what they paid for the gas currently sitting in their tanks. I guess technically a lot of product costs are based that way, just seems gas is more prone to do so. So supply and demand pricing affects both the gas station and consumer.
