Re: March-May ZS Postal Match

I'd be fine running them again, I would even give others the chance to craft scenarios (I had a narrative going, but it's been awhile so I'm rusty).

Just without prizes, until we can make sure that the participation will stay strong, I think. Bragging rights, if you will.

Re: Do you have rain barrels?

Re: Do you have rain barrels?

Holy moley. I just got the email reply notification for this. Must have been stuck in hell. Anyhow, the attachment on the downspout has a leaf screen and a reservoir channel around the outside, since most of the water that comes down a downspout isn't going directly down the center of the channel, b...

Re: June-August ZS Postal Match

First off, there are no current postals. Second off, the results were never posted because like the two times before it, I didn't get two entries emailed to the postal box. Without at least two entries the postal is a wash and there's no point. I got a little burnt about running them and having mult...

Ya know, I don't have an EMR, but I do have a Mountainsmith Apex 80 Liter. Since I run a hammock setup, I picked up a Jacks R Better Gear Hammock/Pack Cover. http://www.jacksrbetter.com/shop/jeffs-gear-hammockpack-cover/ It actually works quite well.

Re: Is a Remotely Piloted Vehicle Part of Your Preps?

I'm given to understand that, on mine, everything is available as pins on the underside of the body, along with the USB port. Is that what you mean? Hopefully I'll find out before we leave work, as it's being delivered to my office. Yeah, the APM was one of the reasons I decided to go ahead and spr...

My XJ470 has been collecting dust for the last few weeks. I got busy with work related stuff, in addition to getting up to speed on my ham radio stuff. Nearly all the components are there, and I'm a bit nervous as I get closer to completion, but I also have a couple smaller copters I've been using ...

Re: Is a Remotely Piloted Vehicle Part of Your Preps?

IMO manufacturers could maybe fix that flyoff issue - If "fly -these- waypoints" is set before launch, then you just force the drone to lock onto the GPS signals before it'll launch; That'd solve THAT cause, if it's that. Yes and no. The Flyoffs are mostly caused by what is colloquially known as a ...
