    a little excitement in my day

    We have found that Canadian Tire game cams have a long battery life 6 month and take incriminating photos, good enough that we took some thieves to court and won. The fool was two feet from the cam and did not see it, and got a nice selfy

    Tired of crappy rubber/plastic utility tires?

    Nice job on those run flat tires. Here's a couple ideas to save you some work and time. Use a section of 8" pipe from the scrappy's. These used some 3" angle iron for the spokes and a 2 1/2" long piece of 1" round for the hub. Drilled out the round to 5/8" ID to fit the axle.

    a little excitement in my day

    Dabbler, I am willing to bet that those kids have experienced what you are going through, but in their own home. This was not a one off, that's what scares them. If I have to deal with it, it will be with a lethal weapon. Never pick a fight with an old man, if he is too old to fight, he'll...
