  1. Got my third shot yesterday. Hospital my wife works for thawed viles to administer to immunocompromised patients and had some leftover that were bound for the trashcan. As someone with asthma, I don't want any virus that attacks my lungs, and being at the 9 month mark since my last Pfizer shot I went an got another. Rest assured while some of yall are out there trying to decide to take a vaccine or not I'm over here being a voluntary lab rat. If it means I don't suffocate to death over a 5 week period I'll take the chances.
  2. was that a public field or private? I've never been lucky enough to find a field with enough birds and few enough people to make it worth my time. I do love Dove hunting though
  3. It’s a new corporate policy, however not even the employees are following. Seems more of political theater than true concern for public health
  4. EKMO is an external machine that exchanges oxygen and CO2 in your blood. Most often used during transplant surgeries or in cases of significant lung damage(this case) or heart weakness. it means his lungs are experience severe disease or damage that are not allowing them to effectively exchange Oxygen and CO2. He can develop hypercapnia which is basically CO2 poising and becomes fatal.
  5. Yes, an available Machine is the issue. I imagine they are trying to go to Vanderbilt but need open beds and availability. This is a truly bad sign. He can only be on EKMO for so long before they have to pull you off. Some can make it but some do not. I’ll be saying a prayer for Phil. Don’t wish this on anyone
  6. Pretty sure our whole family had it for about week and a half. I was pretty down with it. Chest and head congestion. Ended up with sinus infection. Of course clinic did the Rona test and of course it was negative. Kids and adults both had pretty significant symptoms
  7. This isn’t a good sign for Uncle Phil. Hope things turn around
  8. I think this was meant mostly in jest but in case it was not. We all understand how politicized this has been and I don't want big brother mandating anything, but I can assure you turning the TV off will have no affect on how severe your case of COVID can be. I figure Phil is the prime example.
  9. Again, I'm fully supportive of your right to not vaccinate, but the immune response from the vaccine is much stronger than antibodies from contracting coronavirus. And the research is still weak on how long they last from exposure. I'd get a shot if its been 6months or more since you were sick.
  10. I think that risk analysis factored in a bunch of false negatives on the side of the vaccine, is my point. I guess I’m just jaded and can’t see why there is so much fear of the vaccine. Odds are much higher of dying from Covid at age 61 than any complications from the vaccine.
  11. Not being in Nashville I don't hear much of his show (didn't really when I did live there) but happened to pick it up back late June. And he spent the better part of an hour railing on the vaccine and how we done KNOW that its safe because its not fully FDA approved yadayadayada. I hope folks will realize before its too late that this is a deadly disease and the best way to live is get a vaccine, set all the political bull #### aside. I'm all for you right to choose NOT to get it, but I think too many people are being swayed by bad logic and political rhetoric that's not founded in rational thinking
  12. I need to take survey of my ammo but I probably have some hunting supers i could do at least a partial trade. I'll check and send a PM
  13. I know a guy who just moved from Knoxville to Texas to lead trial rides at the Bronco Off-Roadeo course there near Austin. He's a very discerning off road enthusiast and he says they are really great and capable off road vehicles. Its a true contender for the Jeep in the "off the lot off road capable options". If the fords have any level of better reliability than Jeep they'll see good sales
  14. in my opinion the best bbq in the US doesn't come from any of the cities on that list. It comes from the places you find when you think you're lost in the middle of nowhere. Places like BE Scotts in Lexington TN or Trollinger's outside of Paris. We were in Florence AL one time and the group decided to get BBQ and we drove past 4 commercial looking spots with bright signs to get to a small little building with a tiny sign over the door and inside looked like it needed a good mopping. We clearly made the right choice. It was really great btw if anyone is ever in Florence; Dick Howell's BBQ
  15. This makes me sad. I will be praying for y’all and hugging my fur babies close tonight
  16. I didn't read this whole thread because I'm lazy, so forgive is this is repetitive. I sold my G20 only to purchase a G29. I love it. I love 10mm. If I were owning simply for shooting purposes I'd have kept the 20 but it was a bit too big to carry for my needs. I will buy another G20 in the future just because one cannot have too many 10mm guns
  17. Its not for lack of desire, I'd say most appreciate the quality and value, they just lack the discretionary funds to actually purchase. But this goes for Anything over $1000. We see 1911s, ARs, etc sit for months priced at $1200
  18. Not sure on trimming alone. It’d probably cost $2k to cut it down if not more. I will say with the size of the tree I don’t imagine any amount of pruning is going to save your gutters.
  19. Big Tree is Willow Oak Below is my best educated guess from the picture. Trees always look a little different in person. If you really want to know I can swing by sometime and look
  20. I thought you could buy long guns out of state?
  21. Found the go fund me page that explains the man died from fatal injuries trying to navigate the canyon to get to the road. The female ha da severe ankle injury require surgery. I simply think they made a bad navigation error and got in very extreme terrain and had a mishap. According to the timeline on the page if they’d stayed with the car they would have been found an entire day earlier. Assuming it had gas they could have even run the ac periodically to stave off heat trauma https://www.gofundme.com/f/emily-henkel-alex-lofgren-disaster-relief
  22. So many things when wrong. After looking at the map they hiked in a direction that appeared shorter to paved road but extremely rough terrain. I know making the right decision is never easy in the moment, but staying with the vehicle or hiking down the road they drive in would have been better options. 22miles even in extreme heat could be done. Wait for night fall and hike hard all night and you could be there before sunrise. They should have had more food and water as well as a mobile emergency device like Erik posted above. It’s easy to armchair quarterback this now but when you go to a place called “Death Valley” you HAVE to prepare to survive if the situation arises.
  23. I can’t figure why they hiked to a location that was unreachable but helicopter? Like was said above, if you have 3 days of water, why not hike down the road? Or did they?
  24. Yeah I hate people. It’s just like when “guns in bars” was passed. Drunk people have been having Wild West duels in the parking lots ever since, right?
