    18-19 ski season

    Looking over one of my happy places on earth. Doing laps out there is a blast.

    Looking for a new Razor Brand?

    And it's the same color as my motorcycle. So it's fast!

    Looking for a new Razor Brand?

    I tried their intro deal thinking it was all a gimmick. Turns out I love it. And yes, the orange handle rocks.

    18-19 ski season

    Tragic event at Taos. An inbounds slide on Kachina trapped two. One died, the second is critical. Buddy of mine was there and wound up on the probe line. Same day a slide on the pass up from my house caught a sledneck. He was dug out and CPR started, might make it. Be careful out there.
  6. No. I'm still in Buena Vista. Just heading out to go ride moto for awhile, maybe even slide over to San Diego. Retirement is a bitch.
  7. If I find myself in that hell hole sure, I'll stop by. No time soon as we are headed to the desert to thaw out. All this global warming is piling up in the yard and I'm tired of keeping a fire going.
  8. I think he meant "ferris" as in ferris wheel. Which is what this thread is turning into. It just keeps going around and around and around.

    Grilling 2018

    It's a cow, they typically go 500 plus on the hoof. I got stupid lucky and was able to back a truck up to her. Still a load of work getting it in the bed. When I started gutting you could hear coyotes in the distance yipping. When we left they were going nuts just out of sight in some scrubby pinon. Scavenger feast ensued.

    Joke

    A device used by people who are too lazy to turn off the lights that is spying on you in order to sell shit to you.

    How many of those equal one of these? She's going to hang a bit then I'll be whittling for a few days, then grilling. By the way, that's a 10'6" ceiling.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    Nice boat, but I think he's placing a lot of value on access to the slip. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/boa/d/oceanside-1978-pacific-dolphin-formerly/6785639881.html

    Replacing a fireplace gas lighter

    When we built this house the wife and I couldn't agree on what type of secondary heat to include. I wanted a freestanding woodstove, she didn't like the idea of black pipe showing. She won, of course. So we installed a fireplace from this company. https://www.fireplacex.com/ProductGuide/ProductDetail.aspx?modelsku=98500104 Combustion air is drawn from outside. The fan to blow heat is also installed outside the living space, in the attic. The idea is outside air is heated and blown in, slightly pressurizing the living space. Works great, mostly. It was my idea to place it up there as opposed to a side wall or the crawl space. In theory that's where it should be. If it was in the crawlspace it would just recirculate inside air, due to the "conditioned crawlspace". 90% of the time it's great, however if it's not running on a cold windy day the attic pressurizes and sends cool outside down that duct. Next time we have a fire I'll try to remember and post a photo.

    Coast Guard Mutual Assistance

    Im not making light either, the whole thing sucks. But who contributed to the local construction worker who got snowed out last week? Or the laid off iron worker? Or the single mom scraping by who lost her job due to outsourcing overseas? They don't get back pay. No work, no pay. Denver is offering to pay mortgages for furloughed federal employees, up to 2 months and 5,000. For free, they dont have to pay it back. Even when they get back pay. Again, not making light but come on. Nobody ever paid my mortgage when I was out of work. Flame on

    I would be very interested in seeing those, seriously. Regardless of this topic history like that is cool.
