    who is currenty reading what?

    That's also my current read warrior. VERY dry, but very accurate and scary isn't it?
  2. I'm with Snake. Been driving Jeeps since '85 and love em. My dream Jeep is an old CJ-8 though. Found one but the old couple wouldn't sell it. It had been their son's and he had died. It matched my old CJ-7 perfectly! I drive a 2005 Rubicon now. Nice, but not want I want. Too much comfort, too little function.

    Cat owners - Train your cat now to come

    Maine coons are the greatest. Mine is laying right here beside me and spent all day in the workshop with me. He likes to supervise. I just open the back door and yell, "hey Gus!" And he comes running with his tail straight up in the air like a bicycle flag. He likes to make sure my wife's Golden Doodle "Duffy" doesn't get out of line also. If I had a video camera, I'd make a fortune with funny pet videos!

    New House

    I'm kind of interested in the Fisher Bonker. Sounds like a Ronco product. LOL

    New House

    My buddy in Pensacola sent me a humorous note this morning describing the experience one of his girlfriends had when she fell off the porch into the Yucca plants. It ended with a trip to the ER and an ex-girlfriend. Grab some Yuccas Nana! He swears by em!

    New House

    Remember Nana, With great power comes great responsibility. LOL My buddy over in Pensacola has some type of plant that makes a rose bush look like a powderpuff. I'll try to get in touch with him and find outwhat it is. You might like it even better. What about just getting some bars for the living room? Not as stylish as offensive flora, but they'll work.
  7. I was reading some history stuff about the underground railroad which lead me to WWII and the ways the Jews knew where a safe place might be and the idea hit me that a lot of us would be travelling during or shortly after a life changing event like the ones in the title. Another member's post actually started my reading journey. I wondered if there should be some sort of sign or symbol that those enroute to a BOL or other safe place could look for to know that they have encountered a friend and maybe a place to spend a safe night on the road. Is it even feasible these days to provide a safe place for the ones making the journey? Would it be possible to find the symbols in or near a big city that would lead you safely around or through the area? Gangs use tagging to communicate and give instructions, direction or advice. Why couldn't a civilized group also do it? Any ideas on the subject or am I just thinking out of my butt again? It has made for some interesting reading today.

    When I'm not prepping for TEOTWAWKI, I'm a radio controlled glider guider. Nothing is as enjoyable as controlling a little sailplane for hours as it silently rides the wind.

    When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I wasn't a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out. -------—--------Martin Niemöller 700,000 signatures so far? You could fit that many people in 7 "camps". The camps were described before when an undercover agent infiltrated the Weathermen. There was talk of re-educating or eliminating up to 28 million people. That was in the late 60's or early 70's. how much more efficient could they be today? To borrow a phrase from CCR; "There's a bad moon on the rise".

    Blast stained EAA Witness

    I have a full size .45 Witness in what they call Wonder Finish. If you've never seen it, it looks almost like a brushed stainless steel. The only problem is that it aint... stainless. I have stains all around the muzzle and some spots (not rust) on the frame. I've tried several different cleaners and lubes but nothing seems to get it cleaned. Runs and fires great, just looks a little grimy. Somebody suggested brake fluid or something like that, but I don't feel comfy with it. Any advice on what might get it purty again?

    Sure seems like they're getting to be more common than they used to be. Yellowstone moving around ya think?

    I found out today that we had a minor quake INSIDE Mobile Bay on Friday night. I believe it was around 2.5 or thereabouts. I'm only about 10 miles away but must of slept through it. The folks down on Dauphin Island got a bit of a rattle and some called 911 to report it.. Just thinking back, I did notice that the transformer in my neighbors front yard had been moved almost a foot from where it was sitting. I suspected my 16 year had trouble backing out of the driveway but she said no..... emphatically...I may have offended her by asking, but she's 16 and I'm the dumbest human she ever met right now.. She'll get over it.

    Blast stained EAA Witness

    Hey Excoastie, just remembered I had this thread on here. Thanks for the suggestions. I may wander up to the gunshop tomorrow and ask my guy about it. Doesn't effect the shooting or anything and it's not a "BBQ" gun, so I don't guess it matters too much. Although there is a guy over in Pensacola that does ceramacote type stuff...maybe neon green with bio-hazard symbols all over it would be neat looking..LOL

    Rock Island .22 TCM/9mm 1911

    Do we have anybody here familiar with the .22 TCM cartridge? It's a necked down 9mm case with a 40 grain .22 cal bullet. The speed is incredible , and agianst zombie watermelons, it explodes them as opposed to the 9mm which just makes a large hole as it goes through. The Rock Island comes as a double stacked frame with both .22 tcm and 9mm barrels and springs.

    The White Horse Inn..a Place to Talk..

    It does appear to be that time again doesn't it?
  16. It figures! I thought about this when I was ten while walking (uh, hauling butt!) barefoot across the road. just didn't have any idea how to make it work.. Yup, I've always been an idea man with lack of follow through!

    Kinda thought this place would be in flames...

    Another reason to love her! LOL

    Not to kiss too much butt here, but I'd like to say "Thank you" to OregonChick. I may disagree with some of your views, but you're not the shouty type of liberal, you know what you believe and why you believe it and I find it refreshing to hold a discussion with you. You never once called me or anybody a name or were unkind to anybody. If everybody could discuss things like that, it'd be great. I think I started to get under your skin when I mentioned my love for my neighbors goat, but then you realized I was being goofy and you came right back with your own goofy...that's good stuff right there! And! You're a zombie genre fan.... So that right there shows you have SOME good taste! LOL

    At the bookstore

    I went to the bookstore the other night and saw a book entitled, "Sex For Dummies" Why would anybody want to teach dumb people how to reproduce?

    Good, I didn't want you to think I was actually comparing being gay to "helpin the sheep over the fence".. And now for more rude levity! Why do Scotsmen wear kilts? Cause the zipper sound scares the sheep!

    The whole marrying the goat thing was me being silly and trying to lighten it up a bit.. I don't really have a thing for my neighbors goat.. I promise! We're just friends! That's all! How bout this phrase to describe our political process? ELECTILE DISFUNCTION. Pretty much covers it doesn't it? Just wanted to check in and say howdy... I'm back to Netflix and Galactica 1980.. Quite possibly the WORST sci fi series ever put forth in this confused nation. But then, it was the first year of the weirdest decade since the 1960's which were pretty weird.

    My first hog hunt

    I didn't get lucky but my neighbor got a 145lb boar.. Not gamey at all and beat the taste of Winn Dixie meat by miles! Camped out in the woods, saw the disk of the Milky Way. Ate like a king and snoozed by a bonfire for the first time in years. Saw shooting stars and deer. Wasn't yet deer season so no luck there. Walked for miles on forest trails, wore myself out, but the stress from work just dissolved within ten minutes of getting to the camp. I HIGHLY recommend leaving the world behind, even for a day and a half and getting out to live in the woods for a bit. I also learned that I can live okay out of a large backpack, but I can thrive out of a dufflebag! Guess I need to re-evaluate my BOB setup.....my get home bag will work fine just to make it home from my work area.

    If a guy can marry a guy and a woman can marry a woman, why can't I marry two women, a guy and my neighbor's goat? That goat loves me! I seem to recall a bunch of people saying they would never vote for a Mormon because he believes that it's okay to have multiple wives. Shouldn't that be religous descrimination? That's supposed to be illegal isn't it? Let me throw it at you from a Libertarian perspective... The Constitution doesn't say a thing about marriage. It's been left to the states who formalized it probably for tax reasons mostly. Take the power of granting a marriage "license" away from government and everybody is happy. Gays can marry gays, my goatfriend and I can live happily everafter, and I may even have two or three wives! All states will have to recognize my so called marriage won't they? They'd be forced to wouldn't they? What about my right to keep and bear arms, or keep armed bears even? That's mentioned in the Constitution and guaranteed by the 2nd ammendment that the Federal govt can't take it away. Illinois and D.C. don't allow their citizens to carry a weapon for protection. That's in their state constitutions (for Illinois anyway.. No clue about DC) if Alabama must recognize the right of two guys to marry, shouldn't Illinois be forced to recognize my right to protect myself from criminals if I visit Chicago?

    Careful Matt, you'll be accused of hate mongering and fear spreading! LOL Or is that hate spreading and fear mongering? Either way, I'm a wee bit fearful.. Not hateful though Guess I can kiss my 401k goodbye.. Hasn't done anything since 06' anyway.
