This Is Cool! Look What I Got In The Mail!!!!!!!!!!!! (Includes Pics)

7 posts in this topic

I figured the other day I needed some signage for my rigs (truck and boat). I click on the link Rick had in the “Outdoor Discussion, Clean-ups, and Agendas - Keep it Civil” about stickers from Fishing Minnesota, Hot Spots Outdoors and Ice leaders. I found out how easy they are to get. I bought some.

Well today I get a cardboard tube in the mail (less than 2 days). I look and it is my stickers. I had some other things to this evening, but kept those stickers on my mind. Once the chores where done, the first thing I wanted to do was get those stickers on my rigs. Here is how it went (pretty easy):

Got my stickers:



Dirty, dirty window!


Spray some windex on window or surface!


Rub window with rag!


Wipe clean with a clean dry rag!


Mark a center on the sticker!


Peal sticker off of backing!


Center the sticker on window, with mark!


Once centered, start working from the middle outward to the right and back again to the left. All ways start from the middle!


End os Part One!!!!!!!!!!!

Part two!!!!!!!!

Once this is done, rub the sticker all over to clear any air bubbles!


Smooth all the sticker area!


Start peeling back, the backing of the sticker!


A little more!




Do a final rub down to work all the air bubbles out!


I also threw a couple on the boat!


Now, if you get an air bubble you can not finger out, take a little needle pin and poke a hole in the middle of the air bubble and work the bubble to the pin hole.

This only took minutes and I have the FM/HSO Badge now!

Who knows????? This could get you out of traffic ticket or a search by the D.N.R., grin NO!!!! Just fooling around!

They look cool and I am sure to meet new friends at the launch's and gas stations. A good way to meet a fellow F.M.'er.

Nice job Josh and they look good. I agree with Airjer, get a sign squeegee and life will be much easier placing those decals on and getting them smooth without air bubbles. You did do a very nice job without the tool.

Those look sharp. Been thinking of doing the same to my rig. I have some I got from Upnorth I think and they are pretty sweet too. Not HSO, but nice fish ones.

I figure since a squeegee is not furnished with the stickers, I would show the mass's the "Shade Tree" squeegee wink :


Plus I just had to get it on grin and actually if you start from the middle on the HSO sticker and work your way out you will have no bubbles at all. I did have a window tint squeegee at the ready, but these stickers went on so easy, it was not needed.

    • There is more than one guy holding up the show, it's not a big deal, whatever they were planning wasn't going to work long term anyway, just like Obamacare.
    •   They must be irrelevant then?
    •     The roadblock in this case is Ryan.  They should ask him to step down.
    •   Oh look that big money in politics Del likes to defend.
    •   It's more a problem of special interests and political ideals setting up roadblocks. If they did the their jobs and do what is in the best interest of the voters it would be an easy fix but you can't do that when big donors and insurance companies have to have their way.
    • Well my season is done, was an extremely short year, with not alot of fishing opportunities, but still enjoyed some good outings with good friends!    
    • Was just speaking of health in general, you brought up the cancer.   Speaking of:   Well, ill just eat like a slob cause it can happen to anybody. They want you to think that, drive that machine johns Hopkins!
    • Good. If we had a third opposition group when they were pushing Obamacare maybe that wouldn't have passed either. 
    • AKA the Tea-Party
    •   One brave soul comments but nobody really knows.   10% is YUUUGE!  Most are struggling to stay in the black at all.  Yes, equipment and market share are a must - the customer demands it.  Stay current and convenient or die trying.   Aside from pharmaceuticals, the biggest problem is keeping up with the regulatory requirements.  EMTALA requires hospitals to see everyone, regardless of ability to pay.  The reimbursements are controlled by CMS (Medicare/Medicade) so if a hospital wants to be reimbursed it must maintain Deemed Status.  The most common way to acquire Deemed Status is through surveys by a private company called The Joint Commission.   The Standards are set by CMS, surveyed by TJC (which hospitals pay a fee for) and cited for any deficiencies.  EVERYTHING is surveyed from the physical building, to policies/procedures, credentials, life safety codes and so on.  If you're deficient anywhere, you have to correct it or lose your Deemed Staus - and your reimbursements, which aren't even enough to cover the actual costs of caring for those who can't pay their own expenses.   And yes, expenses are high.  Because: Staff need to be skilled and licensed, certain infrastructure components have to exist where they don't in other businesses and most all the equipment used has to be certified and tested regularly, and purchased from certified manufacturers.   And every step has to be documented.  If you didn't document it, you didn't do it.   Literally, there's your snapshot of why medical is so expensive.  And yes, it's all in the name of patient safety - which won't be compromised.   Now, I'm going fishing.  See ya.
