I forget, do you guys happen to have a pickup, or just the Explorer/Expedition/Expewhatever? If so, I would recommend looking into the in-bed auxiliary fuel tanks. A small one is at least 50 gallon, many of them are 100+. Used to sell them at a job I had way back when. The diesel guys would fill up with fuel maybe once every 1500 miles or so.Mike and I put up 55 gallons of water yesterday, will do another 55 this coming weekend. Looking to get our hands on a 55 gallon drum for gasoline. Luckily, there's a guy not too far from here that sells refurbished ones.
Reminds me of the field beside my grandma's house when I was a kid. Apparently I used to ride her golden retriever like a horse through said fields. Lot better looking than my "yard", that's for sure!Thought you all might enjoy my view...
For my unsteady hand, 8" is shooting bullseyes like robin hood...Wool makes for an awesome cold weather protection if you can put up with it. Some people can't, but it never bothered me.
That muzzle loader... how far is your target? 8" is as good as a miss isn't it?
Oh, and I told ya the Ford game is fun. "Anal Ranchero", sounds classy!
Yeah, it's the new style with the 209 primers. It shoots sabboted (sp?) bullets, but not round balls. I've been reading that sabbotless bullets can really tighten things up, but haven't tried them yet... waiting until I shoot my last 3.Are we talking a ball and powder rifle, like an old musket, or a breakover type? I'm not terribly familiar with muzzle loaders. I thought that's where you inserted the bullet into the same end it comes out of?
Hope all goes well for the little guy. And 100k... for everything up to this point? :aigo: How much of that is insurance covering?Monday will be surgery #2, hopefully the last one...
If things go absolutely perfect he could be home by Thanksgiving. We all have our doubts about that happening, but it would be ubar awesome.
We're up to $100k without including "room and board", hoping I get my Obama iPhone5 soon.
I'm in a similar boat myself. Now, I can see the advantage to both routes. I like to keep money on hand, just in case. However, I like to pay things off as soon as possible as well. I'm debating whether to finance my next car, or to save up the cash ahead of time.My question to all: (since I'm obviously not a financial guru)
What are your feelings toward 0% financing for XX months sales? Like if I need an appliance, should I just pay it upfront or use their 'free' money? We've always taken advantage of them and paid them off a month early and made payments $/(#months-1) It seems like a double edged sword... on one hand I'm not out a large chunk of money I may need for an emergency, but it's another $1-200 payment for 5 months or whatever. I know as soon as I'm late or don't pay it off in the time allowed I'm SCREWED, but I make sure not to let that happen.
Good advice Mario.Great list, but I would say, if you live out in BFE which is the place you want to be...Learn to ride a horse...gas is going to be no where to be found when shtf...
You mean like that time they stuck fluoride in the water supply? Oh wait...Besides, what if the water supply becomes tainted? If I can sit here and think of that off the top of my head, then some damn terrorist can as well.
Apparently... I got the call today saying that Friday was the big day. Now it's just sit back and wait for the bills to come pouring in. I need to make a spreadsheet of them and get the totals... Would make a good page in his baby book for when he asks for _______, I can say "Well, it looks like you still owe me $X."Anyway, for the little guy, glad to hear he's coming along nicely. Seeing as how I'm pretty sure you're a fellow Walking Dead fan, shall we nickname him "little ass kicker"?
Hey, always look on the bright side of life, right? *whistles*I think I got like 7 hours of sleep all weekend.
The good news:
I'm pretty awesome at Borderlands now.
