    Baroon Pocket, Kondalilla Falls & Tree Tops

    Mick; A few weeks back there was a report on one of the news stations about a small town over here in the US doing the same thing, printing their own money. The report said that their was nothing illegal about it. I think the town was in one of the Carolinas, but not certain. The way they did...

    Dutch Ovens

    Shoot Chuck, if you cut on oval hole in the top of that cooking grate, that thing could serve a dual purpose and delete a whole additional thread. :lol: :lol: Course, you wouldn't want to be using it over the fire at the time. DM

    Here's your sign....

    Wish my mango tree had that problem, maybe in a few years. Me & the girl were over on the Ft Myer's side of Florida a few weekends back, and decided to do the touristy looky-lu thing, and did the tour of the Thomas Edison House & Museum. He collected plants from all over the world and grew them...

    Flu Shots.....

    Well it gives the talking news heads something to talk about and talk about and talk about and talk about. :roll: Guess they are getting in shape since hurricane season is just a month and a few days away. DM

    Thanks from a newbe!

    One thing to keep in mind (or a word of warning) with that cart design. When transporting to the water, with the boat moving forward, if you come to something that will stop the wheels from rolling (rock, stick, root, roadkill possum...), the cart will stop, boat will want to keep going forward...

    Triangles??? Cubic feet??? What's next? X's multiplied by Y's divided by a square root of Z. If its more than cypering a couple of oughts (maybe a double ought) and a goesinta or two, it's getting pretty complicated. :lol: DM

    Another homemade hammock-- take 2

    Just a question for all you hammock types. If you where on TRR's last Brazo paddle, sleeping in a hammock tied to a tree, in a lightning storm (never mind the winds for now). Since hunkering down under a tree during a lightning storm is a no-no. What would you do in that situation? What do...

    1st Timer Build Log

    If you hold a hot soldering iron to the srew for a small while to heat the screw, the epoxy will loosen its grip on the screw and you should be able to back it out. Maybe not on the first shot, but if you repeat, heat & turn it should come out. Of course if you are using something other than...

    Tea Bags.....

    Dont forget to add an additional 20 cents postage per envelope, since the tea bag in an envelope will make it to bulky to go thru the automatic sorting machines, and it will have to be hand sorted. Or you will just get it back in a few weeks. Of course, since 9/11 not sure how many "lumpy"...

    Saw these 2 while out this past weekend

    I will see your two otters, and raise you this........ Was paddling Hickey Creek down near ALva, Florida last weekend, this was in somebody's back yard right where Hickey Creek runs into the Caloosahatchee River (near Highway 80). There was a llama also, but he was kinda camera shy. DM

    Wabanaki Build

    Gator; Sounds like a bad mix ratio to me. Not sure what brand epoxy you are using, but some come with pumps that you have to add little spacers to to control the volume of one stroke of the pump. Different spacers for 2:1, 3:1, 4:1 etc.....Do you have spacers added? Some epoxies come with...

    And so it starts...................

    Looks like we are pretty much at the top of the list tho. From a 2001 New York Times article : "No one knows the precise number of weapons illegally imported from the United States to Mexico, although it is assumed to total hundreds of thousands over the last decade. Mexican officials believe...

    Waterproofing Fabric.

    If you look in the camping sections of stores, they carry spray-on stuff, the one I have is called "Silicon Water-Guard". Looks like a spray paint can, probably about $7. I use it on my kayak spray skirt. Seems to work ok. Can says it works on "suede leather, nylon, cotton, canvas and all other...

    Call your Doctor first

    Piper; Try a google search for "smoked fatties". Kinda the same things but not wrapped in bacon. One of the kayak fishing forums used to have a bunch of different varieties, alot of different things rolled up inside. They all looked good, just haven't gotten around to making one yet. DM
