Re: Finnally A V8 Small Block American Diesel

They don't make Rangers here anymore do they? I had back in the early 90's (first car) and it got great mileage. Hauled my surf boards and a couple buddies. It did everything I needed it to. Wish I still had it.

Re: bug out bicycle?

I tend to agree with the others when they say buy a quality bike from a good bike shop. These days with the internet the prices from one shop to another are about the same. A good quality bike will last a long time. Also around September bikes start to go on sale because the shops are starting to ge...

Re: Finnally A V8 Small Block American Diesel

I saw that Dodge 1500 commercial last night about their new diesel too. http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/ecodiesel/ $$$$31K Too bad it's about 10 years too late :( As to the new V8 getting 23 miles per gal-- I have a 2009 5.4L and the only time I get 21-23 miles per gal is when I'm on the freeway in the ...

Re: Thinking about getting a .45

Those of you that know me, know that I love my 1911's. I hope y'all aren't saying Springfields are bottom of the barrel 1911's. I have a few, as well as a couple Kimber (including a Kimber Warrior), a couple Terry Tussey 1911's, and a complete custom BBQ gun, and I'll carry any one of my SA without ...

Re: Thinking about getting a .45

I'd look for a used Springfield Loaded Combat or save another $300 and get a brand new one.

I'v4e put thousands of rounds through mine and have never had an issue. You get a reliable 1911 (out of the box), with nightsights, front serrations, and descent magazines.

Re: The Poor Man’s Prepping

Along the lines of Poor Man's Prepping: I just got finished with our 3 month back up water supply. I found a source that sells 55 gal food grade barrels for 20 each. I know that in some places $20 a barrel is high, but around here (Southern Ca it's a good deal). They were used to store soy sauce. I ...

Re: New Emergency Vehicle Bag

I keep one of those vests in my truck-- the dump near me makes you buy one if you don't have your own. They get a lil miffed when I pull out the .99 cent one they sold me the first time I made a dump there (10 years ago). I enjoy the lil things in life.

Re: Anyone use the modular sleep system?

I use a Thermo-A-Rest pad inside my USGI MSS bivy and a Snugpack 30 degree (it's really about a 50 degree bag) bag when it's warm, and the bivy and my Northface Bighorn (20 degree) bag when it's cold. I always carry my wobby with me as a pillow, that way I could supplement it inside my bag if it's t...

I've read that you're not supposed to roll up the excess cable tightly, but loop it loosely into a figure 8.

I'm just learning about this stuff, but how did you wind up your excess cable? 18 feet seems like a lot for a Jeep. Did you tune the antenna?

Re: Need a good knife

If that TOPS STEEL EAGLE is too big, might I suggest the TOPS PATHFINDER. It's a good lil knife, I've been carrying it for about 2 years now. It's razor sharp and is easy to maintain, it's a handy knife. http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s176/jpbeck1/1911/DSCN1757_zps1958c8b8.jpg http://i152.photob...
