    we all have been there, either making the dumb mistake, or foreseeing the mistake about to happen, and came out ok LUCKILY!! It is amazing after things happen, to sit down, decompress, and try to gather your thoughts, on how many different ways that situation could have turned into a way worse deal! Hopefully none of us has been part of these situations where they didn't turn out OK and not everyone made it home that night...I sure would not want to have to deal with those memories for my lifetime! Glad you are OK and the snowmobiler came out OK and hopefully learned a life lesson!!

    Gotta remind myself of that even as pay for the wrecker. My worst fear is a sledder popping out of the ditch and into the road. This guy just drove onto the road and stopped in my lane without so much as turning his head left or right. I still clipped his back end but he didn’t get hurt. Not on a trail and techically trespassing by rinding in the field he came out of. Dude did seem lost. He did offer to help but really had nothing to offer. I know it should go without saying but PLEASE LOOK before you come onto a road!!!

    In related/unrelated news from the twin cities campus... My stopping power is greatly reduced by slick road conditions. I know on a normal day, you can just jaywalk right out into the road and cars will stop. But not today. And put your phone down, obviously you can't cross streets and text at the same time. Get your head in the game.

    It's one thing to get run over diesel pick up. It's another to get run over by a diesel pick up with a snow plow on the front. When I was about 14, some kid shot out onto the road on a four-wheeler riding a trail. My dad missed that kid by an inch. I don't think the kid even noticed. But I'll never forget that, partly because my father never swears. But he did that day.

    Theres a trail west of Brainerd Its called snoway 1 I believe Great trail Except one spot as you are going threw the curves &hills you come to a gravel road ,well I presume its gravel never been there in the summer lol of course its groomed and as you come over a slight knob its there boom I like to ride rather hard and I was in the middle of it before I knew it I actually stopped and went back to see if I had missed a sign and couldnt find one This was years ago so maybe it is marked better now But when that happens you just think , wow I guess the good Lord wantedme on the earth alittle longer Kinda slows you down for a bit !!!

    Time for a smoke

    Well.... after 12 months of debating it, and 6 months of having the seasoning - I finally decided to give buck board bacon a try. I ended up using the High Mountain cure on a 6# butt roast. The box of cure will do 25# and comes with 3 packets of seasoning. I portioned out the seasoning based on my size, removed the bone, rubbed on the cure and put the roast in a vac bag. I turned the bag on day 5 and pulled the meat out of the bag on day 10. I soaked the roast for an hour in cold water to level out the cure. This gave me the desired saltiness. I let it sit in the fridge over night and smoked it the next day @ 225 on the pellet grill. I was planning on only bringing the meat to 145 deg internal temp, but I missed the thermo alarm and ended up cooking to 160. So, the end product is more like ham and less like bacon. Either way, it turn out awesome and the kids ate the sh!t out of it! After smoking I let it sit in the fridge over night so that the smoke could set in. I sliced it by hand since it was only a single roast and my slicer is a pain to clean so the slabs got a little thick (~1/4"). Next time I am going to do a couple more butts and also try making some canadian bacon out of pork loin. For the cost and taste, I am going to have a hard time making store-bought bacon again! Now that I know the cure is good, now comes the fun part of messing with additional flavors. I did crack some black pepper on one of the smaller chunks. Next time I am thinking brown sugar or maple syrup.

    One of my pet peeves are all the people that can't do ANYTHING without either looking at their phone or without having earbuds in and music playing. Peoples awareness to their surroundings must be at an all time low right now. I'm surprised we don't have more of these people getting mowed down on a regular basis.

    USB cords and source are 5v at max 1.4A. Vex runs on 12v. Most LEDs are also 12v. May have extreme dificaulty to to get USB to 12v.

    I know I'll hear a lot of s------------ for this But the money between glass and tin doesnt seem as far apart as it use to be I've only been in a prov lund once and it was on Winnie And if I had to fish in one of those I would never fish in more than a 5mph wind Smaller lakes maybe 10mph ……..just my opinion I think alumacraft might be better they are nice looking boats

    the snow should not be a problem, looks like up to 8+ inches more next week, and below average temps for this month.

    Have you looked into the Milwaukee power source? You could use the cordless drill and hand auger to cut holes and use the same batteries and the Milwaukee power source with the USB port? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Power-Source-Tool-Only-49-24-2371/203461325

    Thats correct. But cigarette lighter sockets as power sources are getting pretty outdated. Even the car charger plug ins are just the terminal end that you plug a USB cord into. The E6 Lightning is the first battery auger that has this feature and I’ll bet all others will follow suit. The amount of power to charge things that run off USB is pretty minimal, including LED lights. The E6 (6 Ah battery) is marketed as being able to drill 70 - 8” holes through 24” of ice on a charge. If that stands to be true, I might be wantin’ one. But even if I could make the power connection to a Vexilar, I doubt I’d take it that far. 6 Ah hours isn’t enough for a day on the ice for the Vex IMHO.

    Welcome to the forum Nuttinbittin. Can you expand on what you are using now for power? What kind of house do you have and how many lights or other 12V usage items are you trying to power up on a itty bitty USB port?

    Trails just got groomed over here in Wright county. Fist time in 4-5 years. Would be nice to get a little more snow on top of them and hope the weather cooperates for a while.

    looks like it will be a long riding season this year, most likely good riding well into march.

    I had a friend who was sledding with his son up in Outing where the trail goes across Lawrence Lake and comes out on a road on the other side. The banks where high on both sides of the trail and when he came out on to the road some guy was flying down the road on his sled at about 60mph and they collided hitting helmet to helmet. He had to be air lifted and is now partly brain damaged. I never trust a road crossing.
