    Motorbikes you dream owning someday anarchy

    Take this and add some giant loop coyote panniers then ride from AK to MX. In the mean time I'm perfectly happy puttering around on my current ride.

    FOOD!!!

    Working out in the shop one day I wound up with a big chunk of 5/16 plate steel and thought why not make a pizza/baking steel. I had the TIG machine set up so used that process to stick the handles on. Took it to a local sign maker for san blasting. Seasoned it on the grill outside at 5-600 degrees which gave it a nice deep color. Tonight was the test run, I wanted to do it on the grill outside first time but the weather didn't cooperate. So in the oven at it's highest setting of 500, preheated for 30 minutes ir so. Tossed in a thin crust with an olive oil, fresh garlic, oregano, red chili flakes and some plum tomatoes that were destined for the trash. Been sitting out for almost an hour now and still very very warm. Holds heat well. Damn fine if I do say so.
  4. Good for you. Where did you find it? If I wasn't headed some place warm soon I'd go look at it. If you do buy it keep me in mind for transport. Us retired guys can drop what we are, or aren't doing for any reason.

    What Have You Done Today?

    I didnt know houses in Punta Gorda had heaters. The average low temp out there is what we call sweater weather.. The opposite is in my area no houses have AC.

    6 days to go on BaT, it will be at least twice that when it sells.

    I would really like a 60, but it's insane what they go for. There's a 55 down in Denver that looks nice. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1979-toyota-fj55/

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    I'm not mocking the boat, just a question about the custom placement of the second set of primaries. Kind of a specialized idea, probably not for everyone. Really limits movement around the helm. I can't embed the full size photo, go to the ad and see the cockpit photo. https://www.sailboatlistings.com/view/89209

  13. It's a long walk from CT to CA, but I guess he had nothing else to do. And it's a lot warmer out at Dorado's house.

    Trail Cameras Again

    I'm shopping now for my first ever trail camera, looking for advice. The environment it will be used in will be cold, sometimes really cold. I imagine battery performance will be an issue, especially with rechargeables. I'm looking for basic, certainly nothing linked to a phone or anything like that. Budgeting less then 200. Security isn't an issue. What should I look at, what should I avoid. Oh and my target is a large herd of elk that primarily moves around at night, frustrating the hell out of me. Might as well get some photos if I don't drop one this year.
  15. Over the weekend a natural gas pump station serving Aspen was vandalized causing 3500 customers to lose service. https://www.aspentimes.com/news/investigation-continues-into-aspen-area-natural-gas-outage-which-could-last-into-tuesday/ Public utilities are ripe for the picking of homeland terrorists. Is this the next shitstorm to deal with in 2021?

    Ski Season 20-21

    Took my 16 y/o grandson today. Only chance I have of wearing him out is on snow.

    Winter is icumin in

    Winter has had its icy grip on my area for awhile. Yesterday just a few miles away at Antero reservoir it was -50f. My town was warmer, just 5 below. Yeah I'm over it.

    I am angry today

    The same can be said for countless other disease processes. A quick look finds 1,800 children die every year from cancer, so far this year about 100 children have died from covid. And just to be clear I'm not diminishing the effect covid is having on peoples lives. It's real

    More infrastructure fuckery.

    More infrastructure fuckery.

    Agree nothing new, Two Elks was definitely ELF. But anybody could scribble anything on a vandalized site. It just seems to be ratcheting up with the Nashville bomb and the white supremacists wanting to take down electrical grids. And you have to wonder about the "major fight" with the fossil fuel industry. Kind of hypocritical to have an airport full of private jets bringing your target audience in. Side story, several years ago I was sitting at the kitchen table when the roar of a larger then usual jet leaving our small airport got my attention, then a private 737 flew by. Big story here in town. Turns out the pilot was able to drop off the owner and guests but there was no place to park the jet. So the pilot flew it over the mountain and parked it here. He got in a world of shit for it as the 737 was way over the weight limit of the air field.

    FOOD!!!

    From scratch baked macaroni and cheese is a joy, although a little messy and time consuming to build. Last night I made two cheese (gruyere and sharp cheddar) and left Xmas over ham, the bechemal was 2 parts half/half and 1 part whole milk. Something like 700 calories per serving, not for the faint of heart. Pan roasted brussels sprouts on the side. Possibly the best mac and cheese I've ever made.
