    Jon, you are DEFINITELY a good driver. Just like the Rain Man. ;-)

    With all that is happening with this pandemic, we need a little humor:

    Only good thing sbout having pythons and anacondas in the glades is - they’re eating raccoons.

    One nice thing about where we go in Canada is - NO RACCOONS!!! But, there are a couple of pesky red squirrels in every campsite. Those little squirts can smell peanuts through vacuum sealed bags! The caribou in that area are reindeer. Every once in a while, sitting around an evening's...

    Sounds tasty. A satisfying meal for two can be a can of corned beef or spam, crumblrd into a couple of packs of ramen noodles and flavor packs. Boils up nicely.. I’ve carried packets of prefried bacon along camping. Tastes great, but the smell can be a powerful attraction to furry critters...

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Thanks, Jon. Me too! I have some local flights planned, then some cross country trips. Albeit, a cross country trip in an ultralight is not going to be like in a faster plane. Cruising at about 55-60mph isn’t exactly a barn burner pace. But, it IS scenic. Flying along country roads, I ought to...

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    FIRST FLIGHT Here’s a report of a trip that took place over 116 years ago. On 17 December, 1903, the Wright brothers flew four, individual flights at Kitty Hawk. The final one was about 852 feet. But the first one, that all important one, was only about 125 feet. Maybe the most important 125...

    The packager misspelled the name, leaving out a letter. It was an “S”. The original name was SPASM.

    RUPTURED DUCK RIDES AGAIN Following corona guidelines, I’ve been staying home, been out only twice for groceries. Today, I went for a 7 mile bike ride. As my Mom would have said, “Get outside and blow the stink off!” I rode a couple of miles to Haslett, then around Lake Lansing. There are...

    Sounds neat. I did a ride today, but I had to pedal. Never thought of that for bowhunters!,

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Thanks, Andy. While I know that you’re right, I’m more like the cartoon of the little girl, praying. “God, please grant me patience? And - HURRY UP about it!”

    HAND MADE KNIVES

    3C, is there more to your story about making knives? Others on here do that too.

    As Crocodile Dundee said about his knife: “Naaaoww, THAT’S a sander!” Welding sluminum is difficult, and not all that common. May I ask why you were learning, and what you were building? And, please respond in a separate string? To avoid hijacking. Thanks

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Corona lockdown isn’t speeding things up a bit here. I’d hoped to “fly above” the mess. Plans and dreams aplenty; but time airborne - nil. sigh One of my dreamy plans includes flying Michigan’s coasts with Lakes Michigan and Huron. And, maybe downstream, our coast of Lake Superior (Gitche...

    Poor Man's Fiberglass

    The coat looked robust; it was withstanding the pressure from underneath. I think that, under the right conditions of application, it could be a viable system. You are an inveterate experimenter, and you report your findings unequivocally. You and Joey both do a good job that way.

    Poor Man's Fiberglass

    Looking close up at those blisters, I can tell you that paint is not the problem. The paint held; the surface is not broken, it is still integral. The problem is something causing pressure UNDER the paint. A likely culprit is moisture. Moisture could contribute to both poor surface adhesion...

    Intro and a Southern Sabalo

    That would be what’s “usually” done, I believe. But, there are lots of variations out there too.

    Intro and a Southern Sabalo

    3C, 1. Glassing outside to water line is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (Read: kinda foolish not to) 2. Glassing outside all over is a standard practice 3. Glassing inside on the bottom is (again) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) 4. Glassing inside above the waterline is pretty much ineffective. In a “flat bottomed”...

    E-Bike

    Out of curiosity, (OK - nosiness) what’s the status of this bike today? Are you still riding it? Day trips? Overnight trips? Do you live anywhere near Michigan? inquiring minds want to know.
