    Is there a 3d printer thread around here? I'm interested, it seems like you can make some useful gadgets.

    Just a little rant here, sorry. I have a roommate that is also friends with Harold (my retired air force friend) and Harold and his wife are going through some financial issues. They've helped us out, a lot, and Harold has given me a lot as far as outdoor gear and such (he's been hoarding that stuff for years lol). Well we went out the other day and they were gonna pay for our lunch, after telling us that the usps has lost over $800 in cashier checks for a bill, so I wasn't going to let them pay so I did. Then we were at the pawn shop and he wanted some AR mags so I got him a couple. Not bragging about what I did but just to pay back some kindness. Anyway, yesterday the toaster oven went out so we were going to get another one today. I have enough in my account to get a decent one and so that was the plan. That didn't happen. I wake up and text my roommate which one to get, if she was already at Walmart. No more than 5 minutes later she walks in with this huge toaster oven saying that Harold's wife got it for us and that she was already at Walmart when his wife, just happened to be there? This is not the first time she's done that. We both earn decent money and we need for nothing. Harold and his wife however are hurting at the moment and it's out turn to help them out, not letting them but a $80 toaster oven. We don't need one this big or expensive. It just irks me people taking advantage of others, especially when they're older. She said his wife insisted, but she should've insisted not to let her. Harold and I do give back and forth. He gives to me, I give back, but little things like books, knife hardware, camping. Luckily he don't know how to order online lol. Apologies for the rant.

    Boo Boo the bear as we call the local problem bear..
    Boo Boo decided to bend my humming bird feeder pole in half today…
    Slightly impressed he managed to bend the pole in half.
    Also slightly impressed that the pole was able to stay firmly in the ground while a bear bent the top part in half..

    Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get any photos of the crime being committed … I discovered a few hundred photos of the dog running around the yard… And a set of dead batteries in the trail camera..

    I was supposed to spend the 3-7th in banner elk, NC for my 40th birthday. I decided I didn't want to go at the last minute. But it kind of worked out for the better so my girlfriend can watch things at her barn since her senior worker has covid. I stopped by a friend's shop on the way to the bank today and now we're going to the beach to work on a boat tomorrow.

    I'm riding the Harley down and she driving down after work.

    Recently took a 5$ pay increase at a job setting up equipment and I'm using company provided community tool box most setup techs have there own roller and since I'm new I'm at a decision making point do I invest in my own box plus tools maybe a small essential tool carry bag or the old hand me downs that are left in this community box. I wish there was just a place I could go to just buy it all in a set. Like I use to fix and sell stihl chainsaws and they offered a complete set of tools and box with just about everything you would need. Trying to track down like a combo 3/4 and 9/16 ratcheting wrench shows vary limited options I'm tired of looking and the 5$ raise is going to be spent once I have to buy the stuff I need. Company will work with me on some reimbursement but it's just a headache right now

    I couldn’t figure out how critters were getting the food out of my trap and not getting Trapped…

    So I completely took down my setup and discovered Boo Boo the bear had actual made a hole in the side of the trap.. I just hadn’t noticed as I put it all back together/ in place in the dark…

    The hole is probably 6 inches wide and 2 inches tall… just enough for smaller critters to sneak in and out..

    Had a very nice and relaxing evening. Cooked some turkey sausages over the fire and listened to the songs of nature. 20210906_193326.jpg 20210906_193335.jpg 20210906_195558.jpg 20210906_203320.jpg 20210906_203311.jpg

    Not sure where else to put this but I needed this. He's really good and funny and I needed a laugh after these last few days.

    This is why I don't like Tops knives warranty. I have the field buddy 5.5 and it has these squiggly lines that they say are a cerakote issue. If left untreated it'll rust underneath and is not covered. They said I can remove the coating to prevent the rust but that will void the warranty. I can send it in to them but I'll have to cover both ways since it's been over 60 days since purchase. So if I never inquired about the lines and it rusted I'd be SOL. Therefore I'll need to pay an extra $30-40 just to have them fix an issue they caused and be without it up to a month.
    That's why I love esee knives, not just because of the warranty but because they're not ***holes about it. I did contact the knife connection also and waiting on a reply. Their site says the warranty is unconditional. 20210912_165257.jpg
