  1. I've been known to smoke some crazy things but skunk and possum have never crossed my mind. I think I will wait on Mac's AAR on this before trying
  2. Hmmm... how to train a deer to do what I legally can't...
  3. maters and peppers are dragging. We need some sustained hot weather. We didn't plant much anything else this year. I've got some lettuce growing in an indoor system and a few squash plants of various types. Just starting to think about fall seed starting. Probably starting plants in 2-3 weeks...
  4. The Still Surviving series and the Farm series
  5. Well, you've picked a nice area in general. As far as high speed internet, I'm afraid you may be out of luck at the moment. We use (2) Cellular routers with external antennas. One for the house and one for my office. Speeds aren't great but that gives me an excuse to keep my camera off during video calls. It is fast enough to stream most of the time. I sent my Star Link deposit in a couple of months ago. I should have equipment in the next 6-8 weeks (I hope). It remains to be seen if this will be the savior of rural internet the hype promises. I am optimistic anyway... Mark
  6. Recently read 2 series by Boyd Craven III. Decently written, but could have been proof read and edited a little more professionally. Anyway, based in Arkansas which is nice as I know the areas which is always fun in a book series. Def not War & Peace or any other literary giant but if you want an easy read that buys you an escape from the current craziness that is our daily life go check them out... Mark
  7. Try fermenting some of them. You can make a great fermented chili paste
  8. Well, I hate to break in to the Covid forum but I thought I would get some garden stuff going. Last weekend we got a start building our new greenhouse. It is a highwall (7.5') 24x48 structure. We did pretty good for a bunch of not very good layout folks. I hope to have it finished by the end of October. Still trying to decide if we are going to do in ground beds, or raised beds or maybe a combination. We like raised beds the most but they are expensive to build; especially now with the cost of lumber... Next year we will be adding a second layer of plastic and a fan to create an air gap between the 2 layers for insulation
  9. Commercial reloaders are presumed to have better (or at least verifiable) quality control. You also don't have to worry about them wanting to push the velocity limit. They want their ammo to be profitable and go bang every time.
  10. Ranges that use higher end bullet traps instead of rubber tire backstops have limits to the velocity of what the backstop can handle. Most of the ranges I've been to have a no reload and a max velocity limit on handgun ammo. Sometimes you have to ask. When I'm firing some of my larger caliber pistols I draw the attn of the range manager. I've never minded as I want the range to stick around and I don't want to needlessly damage equipment. Mark
  11. The new Outpost location is highly visible from I-24. It is a nice looking building. The Glockstore is close. I'm ready for it to be open. I have several customers who have their offices in the vicinity. I anticipate many lunch meetings with Glockstore receipts being turned in.
  12. 8 in a row... playing a real team this Saturday. Lifelong TN fan. They are back when the first 2 teams they played this year are being beat by 30-40 points. Wife is a Georgia grad. Most likely going to be a long weekend.
  13. You are squarely in HF Ham territory. Probably a lot easier to invest in Sat phones.
