Re: Adios HW

Great story. I've always thought it cool when you meet someone who is a "Somebody", and instead of talking about whatever it is that has thrust them into the public eye, they talk about the mundane or what is at hand. I friend of mine spent some time with Bobby Knight, Bobby had no desire to talk a...

Re: Ummm, where was I? ==> The Dinty Moore Diet Page 27

Fantastic!

I have an annual FF trip that started with my Dad, brother and a few close friends. Though he is now only there in spirit, we are now running on our 16th year. Only wish I'd have started it earlier.

BM, sorry to hear about the impact of the storm. But, glad to hear all of yours are safe and sound. Stay good, be strong and help your family and neighbours.

Re: This day in history THREAD...

Though they both would appear to speak English, I am not sure who I can understand least. Austro or FSB. Though, I truly dig all the excellent pics FSB posts routinely. And, they help me interpret what he writes.

Re: 3 man tents...

If it's strictly for car camping, forget about getting a 3 man, get something big and roomy. I've got my backpacking tent for when I have to carry it, but for car camping I've got a big Kelty family sized dome tent that I put my Simmons queen size inflatable in (bed, that other inflatable is svelt)...

Re: And we're off.... (canoe build)

This is awesome. At the risk of sounding like an idiot, what is holding the planks in place once you pull out the staples. What, obvious thing, am I missing? Each cedar strip is cut with tongue and groove. Wood glue is applied between each strip before placing and stapling. Look back at the picture...

Re: Hey Califunkians

Fucking pussies. That is about all I have to say about it. Are you suggesting that 'pussy hair' would not be caught by the ban? It is hair, not fur. And, your time in strip clubs would be legitimized. Or, maybe it's a chance to get your wife/gf to shave her pussy. Either way, this is good thinking....

Re: Canada has a few things going for it. (Report)

Hitting water near there end of this week (a little further South). We rarely catch as many big Cutties as you, but we do catch a enough decent sized ones and also rarely see any people. Reasonable trade off, me thinks.

Re: come hell or high water tr

I love these reports. But, always feel like an immigrant reading the local language for the first time. Like my classroom English has little or no bearing on the dialect actually used by locals. Keep it up.

Love those pics of your Dad crunching on the butt of a cigar.
