8 posts in this topic

I was just messing around with some christmas lights, and was wondering if anyone has uses the rope christmas lights and placed them in there portable shelter. Thought it could be kind of cool since you can connect them together and get them in different colors. White,blue,green,yellow,red, multi colored.

Anyone Tried them?

I tried them once but it was a pain dealing with the mess. I ended up getting UFO type LED lights from Northern Tool and they ork great. 48leds and no wiring,you can't beat it.

How much $$ for the ufo lights and how many hours can you get out of a set of batteries? How many batteries does it take?

I just looked it up on their site. northern tool and it does look sweet for the portable. It has a hook or magnets. One tip, you must twist to open, someone pried it open and broke it. On sale for $12.99. It has six great reviews as well. I think I should order one!!

You won't be disappointed. They do go quick this time of year. I use 1 in my X2 when it is slow and 2 if we are playing cards. They say batteries aren't included but they were in the ones I bought last year. It takes 3AA batteries and those lasted me all season.

I also have the UFO lights(2) from Northern. They are awesome. Mine also came with batteries and they lasted all season as well.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
