can't get a fire going?? one word NAPALM! OK me very bad thinking of that movie quote " Nothing like the smell of napalm in the morning" I have a load of wood for use but it would be nice to unload it as I DO NOT want to be bringing it home I loaded by myself so if we can't get it unloaded that's going to make some look like real girly men LOL

2012 Southern Alberta Singles Campout At FT Macleod
Posted: 6/15/2012 8:45:25 PM
Well I just finished fighting with some monster chunks of wood. I have a full load but some of the chunks are way to big to work with. These are from a 70 foot tall poplar and some are 3 feet across! Now if one were to throw it in the firepit it might take a couple of days to burnup LOL Splitting these monsters is proving to be a challenge if I had a 30 ton splitter might be ok but I don't have such a beast. Now I think I can only get less than half of the pile I have here loaded onto the trailer would need 2 pickup trucks to take the rest I think. Now I would really like to get all of this out of here so if anyone wants firewood come and get it.

OK I have gotten things taken care of so I WILL be there! Now I am bringing the infamous "Froggy" and some firewood too. Now the firewood is in big chunks but I will be bringing my splitting maul so we can have a mini lumberjack contest splitting. OH OH I just had a bad thought AKA Monty Python's "Lumberjacks???" ME BAD!! lets hope there are not a lot of wildflowers LOL Now I might be able to tuneup an extra bike I have here it has front suspension and adjustable back suspension with a comfort seat. But it no one needs it let me know and I will not bother with bringing it.

Posted: 8/28/2011 12:29:39 PM
Ok now I have one of those "Big Blue Jugs" for water I have also set it up with a hot water maker so that might help. I have tested out this contraption and it works nicely I will be there with the RV "CC" and it has a full water tank as well. Now if need be I can use the outside shower hook up to supply hot water as well. Not sure what to bring for potluck yet have options on several things will wait ans see what is needed most! I also will be there on thursday unless I have to run to the hat to kidnap someone, if so I will have to stop somewhere and pick up pink duct tape for that deed

NOT a good idea to poke me with a stick! My killer chihuahua has been know to take a chunk out of people who try and do that to me! If one wants to see a instant transformation into killer psycho puppy you just have to be nasty to me and it is NOT pretty! But folks are so nice that never happens so no one believes me when I warn about it!

Not sure what I will be using for camping yet but I have several options so not a problem. Now as for a costume to take a line from a movie and change it a little " Costume???

DD I have done some research and sorry but titanium is non magnetic that's one of the reasons they use it for spare parts so after wards a person can have a MRI and not have a part go shooting through a wall LOL But one other thing we could do is build a helper machine for her knee with a couple of electoservos and a proton pack and boost the power with a Flux Capacitor then set up a remote control for onehot. Only problem is if he gets itchy fingers she might be doing a "River dance" Or if he has to many shooters she will be making the sound from the old show about the guy with extra rebuilt parts "DA DA DA DA" and she will be going in slow motion??

OK I guess I am going to have to bring "Freakenstein" I put a new motor on him last summer and he has been field tested for gopher holes. I tested him in a place with lots of gopher holes and they were no problem! Now I best not put his big yellow umbrella on him for if the wind picks up cooker will be in lethbridge real quick LOL. He should be helpful as he can seat 3 comfy and has room on the back for coolers full of shooter stuff. He is not to loud and does not go real fast so if one has slow reflexes from to much medication we are still safe from being run over. Lets hope onehot51 doesn't do a tim taylor on him and soups him up into a hot rod LOL We might have to worry if he knows how to put a blower on a briggs engine. OK me bad

I am starting to wonder if folks are going to be mean and duct tape folks to chairs and fill those people with shooters, maybe practicing the bagpipes at 6 am after all that drinking might be in order to avenge all the meanies. Oh I can be evil when innocent folks picked on at the very least the sound of generators will be nothing to complain about LOL

THANKS DDDesiel!!

That works well for me as Munchkin should be not be here those dates and I am free to attend both times. I just hope I am still able to drive by then but I think I will be fine I am not going downhill that fast. Pixie should not have any trouble as long as there are not any big dogs that see her as a nice light snack She is such a big chicken. But when you hear of some of the things going on you can't blame her She could wind up as ammo in a red bra being used as a double barreled slingshot. OK now I am being bad!

OK the vaccine does not work this way but WHAT IF and I mean a BIG WHAT IF. Having gotten the shot a person does not get the flu but still transmits the virus to others, then by giving this shot to the flames we have made a team of " Typhoid Mary's" infecting thousands! If this happened would we still think that these clowns as so great and wonderful??

Posted: 9/4/2009 7:16:31 AM
A person does not have to worry about not getting any help setting up ones tent! there is a whole crew that jump into action at the smallest sign of a damsel in distress. I have helped MANY setup their tent and I do not have a suit of armor (Although that might not be a bad idea) but then I would have to worry about can openers and the indiscriminate use of said device. Nor do I have a white horse, all I have is a goofy tiny black and white dog who could be mistaken for a gopher with a gland problem. For all those fence sitters good points have been made to take a chance join this fun bunch and have a great time, and not to worry some harmless folks like myself have extra beds in their trailers so people have a WARM place to sleep and no "HOT ROCKS" needed (by the way the rocks do not last the night and by 3 am you are not a happy camper) I am distressed by unhappy campers that is NO FUN!

well my new camping fridge runs on 12 volt, 110 volts, and propane so I will have a cool spot for my tapioca pudding. I also have other things that make "roughing it" not so rough. I have a couple of stoves and a BBQ as well so I think not finding a spot to cook on is highly unlikely. And I have stated before I have an extra tent as well, god only knows what other things I have in the hiding places in my trailer might even find Mr Yamamoto a little guy who don't know the war is over

But dddiesel you forget when it gets cold they heat up those rocks in the campfire to stay warm at night. Then say they were cold in the tents all night instead of using the extra beds we have in our warm trailers. I do not like to see anyone in distress in any way

Money Making Idea's....
Posted: 7/15/2009 4:15:19 PM
Well my off beat hobby is starting to turn into a money maker, was not supposed to do that! I find old busted up bikes and other things then turn them into one of a kind special needs machines, I have pictures of a couple on the profile. Now these recumbent trikes I make now can retail for thousands but I do NOT charge stupid prices like that! I like to play around with my MIG welder and come up with special things for folks and each one is a custom build! I tend to only make these for disabled folks as part of their therapy needs. And the process is part of MY therapy I wonder does this make me a recovering "Dr Frankenstein"

Smoking in public bars and restaurants
Posted: 7/6/2009 6:47:19 AM
yes paint can help with the third hand smoke. The most extreme solution is what happened to my local watering hole! It burnt to the ground on new years day It is now being rebuilt so it will be very nice when finished. They had real good food there but the lingering cigarette stench bothered myself and others. The place was called Annabelle's it will now rise from the ashes! It was a fun place with karaoke and live bands once in awhile so it might be a place to think about for a meet and greet for folks who want to get away from the big city

The back of a car is not the most comfy place to sleep and I have extra beds that would help avoid folks looking like a pretzel in the morning I can't have folks copying the way I am in the morning now! I am thinking the best way to wake up weewink is a nice cup of black coffee served in bed. But I could be wrong it would not be the first time

Yes I have gotten a Wii as well . My mother who is getting up in years finds it fun and with the internet connection can get weather and news feeds as well. Great investment the Mario cart we just got is a lot of fun she gets a kick out of what the characters do like say "bye bye" as they pass. And yes it is very good to encourage movement for anybody play it much and one can "Feel the burn"
