Re: Truck Rollover... Lessons Learned

good to hear you came out of that alright. I guess this explains why the previous owner of my Ranger had a several hundred lb hunk of metal in the flatbed. I didnt understand it's purpose but noticed it made acceleration and stopping at least a fraction of a second slower; so i removed it. Any thou...

Re: Truck Rollover... Lessons Learned

Been awhile since I checked back in here (lots of stuff changed at work rapidly, lol). So, thanks to my insurance, I actually got paid out more than the truck cost me. With that I ended up getting a 4runner (98, I think), 4wd and 5 speed. Loving it so far, and it's a lot nicer for transporting our d...

Re: Truck Rollover... Lessons Learned

Yeah, I was wearing my seatbelt, so thankfully I stayed put, and most of the motion was spinning (other than the roll), so no whiplash or other more serious injuries. Definitely gonna have stuff on standby to weigh down the bed of my next truck during wet weather. I would've used 4 wheel drive, but ...

Truck Rollover... Lessons Learned

Well, this last Saturday, I learned a few valuable lessons. 1. During rainy weather, drive slow. During heavy rains, if you think you're driving slow enough, drive slower. http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a539/ReubenLQ/PART_1356310731844_IMG956865jpg_zps57edc821.jpg 2.

Re: could i make an alcoholic pumpkin?

Haha, touche major. I, of course, am fine with random mixings of ingredients, as anything with a high proof will taste good (if not now, just down a few more and your opinion is sure to change ;) ). I have a feeling this may require a grog-off....... Fill your pumpkin with choice of concoction, tast...

Re: could i make an alcoholic pumpkin?

I like majorhavoc's idea. I saw an article about making a pumpkin into a beer keg, but people brought up the fact that the beer would go flat and various other issues. Major, is that a random concoction you just threw out there, or are there actual measurements of the ingredients to make something t...

Re: Weird Vehicle Tampering

My thoughts are probably someone (or maybe more than one) who for some reason is trying to intimidate you/the previous residents into leaving. The fact that it's not always damage may be their way of showing you how vulnerable you are to whatever their intentions are (not trying to be alarmist, just...

Re: Your pet is quite plump....

I would never eat either of my dogs or my cat, no matter the situation, and anyone who tried to grab any of my pets for dinner would find themselves without a working hand (or probably mouth, for that matter). 1. My wife and I raise our pets like a member of the family, and we would NEVER eat a memb...

Paid for membership not showing ZS Member

I think the lower cost, "virtual" membership is a great idea. It will definitely make signing up more palatable to some, though I personally don't mind the current cost. I've gotten a lot of return on my investment (no, not money. I've met a TON of really great people, learned some things, and I've ...

Exactly. You carry for yourself, so others will have their kit on hand in case they (hopefully don't) need it.

Very interesting video, Merlin, thanks for posting it up!

Community Involvement Before the PAW

Nothing wrong with being the leader or the person people look to for help, I would just rather wait until things get bad before I choose who those people are. What I am getting at is you might not have much choice later. Prepare yourself now and try not to get caught unprepared later. You wouldn't ...

Community Involvement Before the PAW

In almost any situation, there are followers, and there are leaders, and I think the logic of "don't be a leader because people will expect you to take care of them/will use all your resources" is flawed. People will naturally find someone to be their "leader", and I would much rather be that person...
