    What do you use for a truck gun?

    I've been eyeballing one of these. Spent a lot of time shooting a more traditional flavor of the same gun as a kid. https://www.marlinfirearms.com/lever-action/model-1895-big-bore/model-1895sbl Mostly, I just want one so that my father craps his pants while ranting about the "shiny metal" and...

    Sounds like a plan to me. My advice would be to keep the supply and return runs as short as possible, make sure that neither can be smothered by sleeping bags (etc.)in the tent, don't forget to put a carbon monoxide detector in the tent with you, and make sure that you can point the supply duct...

    How many times can I LOL? That's the best MEME I've seen all day. Also, It's been a lot of fun trying to figure out how the forum works. After the upgrade. Again.

    So, I went out to start the Jeep on Wednesday (after sitting for three weeks) and the battery was dead. Bummer. When I reinstalled the NOCO I hooked it up to the rear battery only. Dumb. Yesterday I took the Jeep apart and hooked up NOCO bank 1 to the starter battery, NOCO bank 2 to the coach...

    You have a very admirable trust in fellow human beings. Specifically the ones that are closest to you when you are the most vulnerable. Best of luck with that.

    Camp Chair Recommendations

    After a couple of months of testing I've decided that nothing can compare with a Kermit Chair. Choose oak vs walnut. When you get it you must go through the entire chair and apply blue Locktite to all screws and nuts (while adding a double nut where possible). If you will spend the money and...

    You sir, are a very smart fellow. I turned the saw on it's side one shortly after your post (oil port up/cap down) and guess what? No more leaking. I owe you a beer. If I had a child, I'd name it after you! Edit: Next child = Jason (or Jackylin) Mobydick-Conroy :)

    After all the drama with the Propex over the last two years, it seems to have finally stabilized. I've turned it on at 3AM for the last two or three trips at elevation (when you wake up freezing at 3AM) and it has worked. The next two months will tell the tale. I expect that the Propex drama...

    Glad you are following. I've been away from the portal for a while. Moved on to different hobbies for the foreseeable future. The Jeep is more or less "done". There may be a little this or that next spring when I gear up for camping season. We will see. It would be nice to have some sort of...

    why are rooftop tents so expensive?

    Amen brother. Any person that has ever worked in retail knows this (except those that are paid to mop floors...maybe). So, and this is the real question...do you think that the person or business that is selling you an RTT bought and imported for 2K deserves the extra 1.8K markup that they are...
