Re: Backpack advice.

Honestly, if you're not sure what you're looking for yet or what you want, Go cheap, use it a few times and make a list of the like/don't likes. No sense spending 100$+ on a top of the line if you dont know what you need. I'm currently rocking an Amazon Basics backpack. It suits my needs for weekend...

Re: Southern Survival A Netflix Series

I'm kinda Meh on it. I've seen a few things I'm interested in / didnt know about. But the whole thing comes across as a 30 minute commercial for their business... No names of items mentioned i.e. "Look at this cool match we have" and never mentioned it was a Zippo Typhoon match... Few other things.

Re: Coin shortage?

Was talking with a few about this, and I don't see anything sinister afoot. Personally, I think it's a combination of banks not turning cash, business's not taking cash and a lot of cash stuck in vending machines that haven't been accessed in months... The cash is there, it's just in limbo... And I ...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Am I the only one shocked that anyone could think this thing is over? No, but we see it all the time in Hurricane situations. Almost all our local stores are refusing refunds for select stuff at this point (Toilet paper, food, medical). Most have been doing it for months. I honestly hope they conti...

Re: Why do some countries have very few COVID-19 serious illnesses and deaths??

Something that's not being touched much on because of ?politics? maybe is WHICH countries are reporting what. This quote gives a perfect example: The Dominican Republic has reported nearly 7,600 cases of the virus. Just across the border, Haiti has recorded about 85. You have a developed country rep...

Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

We did just get a fairly low price on a Generac propane-only generator to make 240V to power the well pump but that's the hardest-starting small engine I've ever used. There's no way my wife could start it and it nearly kills me on a good day (I have spinal problems and have a lot of not good days)...

NT2C3PO can double check, but the secure/not secure has a lot to do with images. If people link images without http s it'll report as non secure.

They do ,ale adapters for the stoves to convert over to propane. I have one for my demo stove,
It's just (to me) kinda sketchy as it connects the same way as the liquid does (over the open burner).
