    HAPPY 4th OF JULY

    Happy 4th Everyone. Unfortunately today there are people who do not recognize what sacrifices were made to give us the freedom we have today. They take it all for granted and dwell on other matters from the past.

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Like you I was interested in the design. Look at this one. Informational item... Back in my younger days a buddy of mine had a Model A. We would take it and straddle a set of RR tracks. Let about half the air out of the tires so they would cup the rails. No steering just work the throttle and...

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Jack..... You are correct , the inner tubs today are no whee as good as the ones I had as a child. Back then the only time I had a flat on my bicycle was when I ran over a flint arrowhead some Seminole ( or a tribe before them ) lost a long , long , long time ago. Darn thing was in the ground...

    Good choice , the better the cart the better the results. With all the options you mentioned then is one I like and that is the quick disconnect on the tires and rims. if you ever have to fix a flat the quick disconnect is a time saver in energy and equipment.

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    It's some fantastic stuff , a 38 liter backpack ( frame;less ) weighs 10.5 ounces. The 55 liter pack with a Carbon Fiber frame weighs 20.2 ounces. Gone are the old days of the external frame 7 or 8 pound backpack. That 38 liter one when I have it packed the base weight for the pack and...

    Cheesy Potato Casserole Loaf With Scalloped Potatoes, Ground Beef, Tomatoes & Spinach

    Good idea Jack...... Ever since ( Back in the dark ages ) when you told us about the liners for the crock pot ( Slow cooker liner bags ). Every time the crock pot is used there is a bag in it.
