    What is the last thing you bought and plan to buy?

    Makita 36V chainsaw. I'm already in that system with batteries. This weekend was a reminder that I really needed to get one when wheeling in areas that burn. Had to turn around a couple of times after reaching a fallen dead tree from the fires in recent years. a handsaw or hatchet is not very...

    Thanks for coming out. It was quite the adventure. I’ve already ordered a chainsaw for next time.

    US West Monthly meet-up/trip - Sonoma, Marin, Mendo, Lake

    The local meet is 9 at Costco in Santa Rosa. So if you’re close to there at that time you can meet us there. I put 11 at Pomo pumps since it will take about 1.5 or so to get to that point and got folks coming from the valley.

    US West Monthly meet-up/trip - Sonoma, Marin, Mendo, Lake

    Right now, I'm leaning heavily on Bartlett Springs Rd to Walker Ridge. Bartlett Springs is fairly tame for any vehicle. In summer it's doable in most 2wd vehicles. Walker Ridge is nice too and not technical. There may, or may not be light snow on the ground on Walker Ridge, though it's been dry...

    Traction board mounts?

    My solution is a lot like the others. A couple of long bolts that fit the channels of my racks, and a couple of large plastic knobs. I did try wing nuts at first, then discovered what a pain they were to twist off in the snow when your fingers are cold, and an even bigger pain to look for when...

    US West Monthly meet-up/trip - Sonoma, Marin, Mendo, Lake

    That’s going to be hard to say since it will depend on who shows up. Unless we can decide in this thread. I just drove out to Lake Pillsbury and there was quite a bit of snow. So I’m thinking possibly doing a loop out Walker Ridge and Bartlett Springs Road. Maybe explore a spur off those if...

    New Cast Iron Care And Maintenance

    a chainmail scrubber was a game changer for me. I use one with hot water and done. I don't do much special with my cast iron except use them. i have a few pans that i've been using for 20 years or so, and they are pretty near indestructible. they been soaked, scrubbed with a pad, soap and...

    Best electric cordless chain saw for trail clearing? ***DeWalt Flexvolt 60V Max 16 inch or Greenworks Pro 80V 18 inch***

    Since we now have a "fire season" out here in the west, I'm realizing having a chainsaw to clear roads and trails will become somewhat regular. Last trip I went on, there was a lot of clearing needed and I didn't have a chainsaw. Fortunately the 2 other guys did. I have a hand-saw for cutting...

    Come on up! I'm hoping we get a decent turn out. We'll determine the route based on who shows and their comfort level and capabilities.

    Off Grid Chainsaw’ng

    Rear or Top hand? I just got cash for Xmas and also considering getting one. Didn’t realize there are different kinds. Does it really matter?

    Sounds like a real possibility.

    Friday Night HAM Radio NET

    I don't have a mic on my computer, and I would like to be able to use my handheld if possible. If nothing else, then to become more familiar with it.

    Friday Night HAM Radio NET

    Total newb here. I just got my license the other day, KN6SCT, and all I have is a Baofeng handheld. What do I need to do to get in on these?
