    Niiiicce kit. Japanese whiskies are excellent. Their bourbons are getting tight also (Four Roses anyone?)

    Check out Compass Box's Peat Monster. I'd say it's even smokier than Laphroaig

    Trend Shift! From LED to Halogen: what say you?

    My response is echoing pretty much the same. I have the Mopar upgrade led headlamps for driving. However the color makes harsh contrast in dark wooded areas. I like softer halogen and yellow/amber lights for fog and trails because I can see so much more with less (?).

    Trail Security

    It's worked well for us with Florida black bears. We keep horns on the ATV, deck and the garage. If we leave the garage door open it's guaranteed they get into the freezer and make a mess. One came into the kitchen one day from the garage door being left open, that was interesting. Had another...

    I'm big into the Islay peats. If you like smoke, check out Brookladiach Octomore series as well as Compass Box The Peat Monster. Laphroaig quarter cask is great and won't break the bank. Lagavulin 16 is my go to and I was super excited to score 2 bottles of the Offerman 11 year edition last...
