  1. Today
  2. I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds. Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
  3. U have to keep telling us.......
  4. duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now. I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
  5. Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
  6. It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off? Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
  7. Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
  8. I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses. I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.
  9. Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
  10. What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed. Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against. Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
  11. hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel. opened holes nice and drilled nice.
  12. Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did. He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
  13. Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
  14. What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
  15. If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
  16. I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors.
  17. Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals). Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
  18. Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout. After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted. Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through. I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right. All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.
  19. You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?
  20. I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build. I decided against it as it needed a wood backer. Not sure if there is a different product out there now.
  21. finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
  22. they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed. I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
  23. Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently. I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
  24. No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
  25. Yep, turns out it was a copy. Whatever
  26. Yesterday
  27. Donald has already managed to ramp up demand for ladies fashion hats. This will create jobs and help stimulate the economy. http://www.chatelaine.com/news/coward-hats/
