    Quick Game Camera Question ?

    I've placed one high in a tree, need a ladder, for a security project. It's pointed down and taking great pics. Can I just swap sd cards once a week if there is little to no activity, simply putting the one from last week back in WITHOUT re-formatting them, thereby saving all the pictures? I...

    A Tribute To Jerry Riopelle...

    Most of you are probably too young to remember Jerry. Also he didn't get regular airplay back in the 70's/80's unless you had really good underground radio in your town, but he was huge in the Phoenix metro area at the time. His New Years concerts at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix were...

    Ratchet / Sockets ...

    Since a mishap I'm in need of a better travel hand tool kit. My older American Craftsman set is gone and the new ones are Chinese and 12 point. In a pinch I bought a Kobalt set last year and it's junk. The 3/8 ratchet locked up on the FIRST use, Lowes gave me a bit of a hassle (hassle free ?)...

    Dogs, Heartworms, Raw Diet...

    My daughters Shar Pei died at 10 years old from heartworms. Tough, as she had it from 6 to 16. The next Catahoula got on the treatment from day 1 and gets regular vet visits. Now at under 3 years old, yesterday he tested positive. I'm done, and I don't believe them anymore. I think we're going...

    Front Porch Pickin'.... Americana

    Here's some Americana from my cabin in the woods. Original song simply recorded with an iPad, there is no power at this cabin. The guitar is an '03 Gibson J-45 and the mandolin is a 1933 Gibson. I'm the guitar player on the right.

    It's 1 Degree (f) On The Ohio River...... Starting Procedure..

    I like to let my truck warm up a few extra minutes when it's this cold. I'm running a 5W20 Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Synthetic which flows good, but I just think the metal should be allowed to get to temp before stressing. How about you? I also wonder about transmission temps.

    A Tribute To Free Form Radio....

    I realize a lot of you are too young to remember the days when some radio stations actually played good music. There was a free form "underground" station in Mesa/Phoenix that was a pioneer in open format rock and gave a lot of unknown acts airplay back in the day. Unknown acts like Bruce...

    What's Your Motor Oil ?

    Since buying the new Ram, I've been researching oil. Sheeze..... Mine was a leftover 2016 so I was concerned to get the OEM paper filter changed because it was likely 2 years old and had the dealer change it with 5-20 Penzoil Conventional due to it's high moly count and Chrysler spec while it...

    New Bighorn......

    Just picked up this leftover 2016 Bighorn 4x4 CC. Steps are on order, it has the protection skid plates and tow hooks. This is the trail down to my hunting cabin. This isn't really a build thread, just a new truck for an "old man adventurer". I don't stray as far as you youngsters, but it's...

    Borg Warner 44-44 "Auto 4WD" and such Transfer Case...

    I'm getting near in the market for a new truck, and my '05 Ram 1500 has been a very good one. I notice the upper level trim on the new Rams (Sport, Bighorn/Longhorn, and Laramie) don't use the 44-45 (chain) anymore and has the 44-44 clutch driven transfer case. I'm seeing/hearing mixed reviews...

    The Old Hwy 90...

    The old Hwy 90 ran from Jacksonville to Van Horn, Texas. Around Lake Charles / Sulphur, Louisiana there are sections where the Live Oak trees cover the road and it looks like you are driving in a tunnel. It occurred to me MANY of you all may know that road....... Here's another original I wrote...

    What's your Multi-Tool?

    The tool thread made me wonder if we'd ever done a multi-tool thread. Rather than search............... I've gotten to where I keep this on most of the time because I fear if I leave it at home, I might need it and die or something. This is an SOG Powerlock WITHOUT scissors. I'm pretty sure...

    Nashville.......

    A Tennessee State trooper pulled a car over on I-24 about 2 miles east of Nashville, Tennessee. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a Magician and Juggler and was on his way to Nashville to do a show for the Childrens Hospital. He didn't want to be late...

    How Many Old Jeeps Were Killed Making "The A Team"?

    They are running old re-runs of the original series and I forgot how goofy those were, but sheeze...... I realize Hollywood has tricks that limit the damage, and they rebuild stuff and re-use it many times, and re-use footage as well, but they still seemed to have a pretty good budget.

    My Next Truck.........?

    I need a truck for maintaining our hunting land/cabin/pond, along with our family Patriot for exploring with the family. I found my next one. I'm going to start saving now. It'll be a few years before I can afford a used one....... http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/power-wagon/

    Chiggers and ticks...... Oh My !

    Summer is here. Here's some tricks I've used over the years...... Spray all over. Spray the "on your clothes only" stuff all over your skin. Drink some kerosene once in a while, they hate the taste of kerosene sweat....... Find some leftover radiation from an accident. They'll still bite...
