    Getting ready to retire, what did you treat yourself with?

    I've been retired from my career for 13 years, but not long after that we began taking care of my wife's folks. It has been time consuming, expensive, and tiring. They are now both gone, but as my wife is executor of the will & trust, we are still dealing with the aftermath- emptying the house...

    Question(s) about tending a brush pile fire with the tractor.

    Where my place is in the mountains, we are very lucky to have a forest service owned/run slash burn pit. It is a large area, roughly 1/4 mile X 200yds, 4-10' dp, and was created when the highway was put in; it was a quarry, the source of rock/gravel for building the highway. It is <3 miles...

    Ratchet straps, rope , or bungees

    I keep a bag of 1" ratchet straps under the back seat in the truck, along with another bag of assorted thick bungees. The straps are for anything big enough to need them, such as the small vertical bandsaw I'm hauling home from the cabin in a couple days. Bungees are for the small stuff, like...

    Any Fat tire bike owners out there?

    Been thinking about getting me one of these, thought I'd ask for some input. Any preferred brands or brands to stay away from? Features to look for or stay clear of? I have seen prices from less than $300 to over $7100. Thanks in advance. :)

    Sounds delicious! Is this something you whipped up, or can you buy it?

    Straps or Chains for trailering?

    That pretty much sums up my reasons. Well said. And this.

    Question(s) about tending a brush pile fire with the tractor.

    Did it look like this? This was burned in the Tinder Fire in northern AZ a few years back, but your post reminded me of it.

    Getting ready to retire, what did you treat yourself with?

    I had the same plan as Tughill Tom, with the same result. So instead I spent several hours at The Tilted Kilt, watching the girls & getting mildly potted. Then I got to spend several more hours getting sober so I could drive home. All in all, a pretty relaxing day. :)

    Sometimes you just have to say it...

    I have worked retail, both at the small business level, and at the corporate level. Claiming that "shrink" does not raise prices is plain dumb as fuck. I make rational decisions every minute of every day, as I carry every minute of every day. I have never taken the law into my own hands, nor...

    Sometimes you just have to say it...

    With 10s of thousands, probably millions doing it, I doubt it is at the level of petty theft. Corporate WILL NOT write off the loss, they will raise prices for the rest of us. If they would pass on the costs of being lax on crime only to the liberals who want to go easy on criminals, I would...
