  1. Yeah, you get back from vacation and the work just piled up while you were gone. Vacation only pauses it for a while but then you have to work that much harder upon return.
  2. I agree with Surface Tension. Weight distribution should typically be leaning toward the rear and prop selection could also be part of the problem. I'm assuming with the 60hp you have power trim? Perhaps the motor is trimmed down too low forcing the bow down too much.
  3. I guess they did. I wasn't paying attention to the date.
  4. This makes sense. I suspect it might also depend on the insurance plan that was purchased. I'm sure there are policies that can be written to include replacing the whole side or entire siding to make sure it all matches when done but it would also come with a need to open the wallet a little more.
  5. Humidor is a smoke saver. Using Propylene Glycol fluid keeps my cigars at a pretty constant 70%, which is ideal. Although, during the winter the house is at about 70 degrees which is a tad on the cool side for 76-80 degrees is ideal. As you said, summer is better.
  6. Depends a lot on your tastes. I personally don't find where brand name means all that much for each brand has a wide variety of cigar sizes, lengths, strengths, flavors, and wraps to choose from. I personally prefer the aged maduro wrap for flavor, mild to medium strength, and 42 ring or larger diameter. Larger diameter cigars will burn cooler preserving the flavor much longer as heat kills the taste. That's why nubs can be popular. Smoking them slower so they don't heat up as much can also help. Here are a couple of my favorites. Ashton Aged Maduro Churchill - medium strength, maduro wrap, Churchill size (48 ring, 7" long). A little more spendy. Macanudo Maduro Gigante - mild to medium strength, maduro wrap, gigante shape (60 ring, 6" long). Moderately priced. Don Lugo Maduro Robusto - mild strength, maduro wrap, robusto size (42 ring, 5" long). For a low cost cigar I find these to be pretty good. Backwoods Sweet Aromatic - Very mild, aged wrap provides a sweet flavor but not sugary, cigarillo size (27 ring, 4" long). Cheep cigarillo you can find at most cigarette outlets. The Black & Sweet or Mild & Wild are also quite good. These can all be found on Thompson Cigars HSOforum.
  7. I'm betting that after 25 shots, the last ones you tasted were better than the first.
  8. I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip?
  9. Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon. My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly. Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
  10. Learning curve. With every new system we go through them. Windows 10 is laid out quite a bit different from Windows 7. Remember how difficult it was when Windows 8 first appeared? Now that I'm starting to get accustomed to Windows 10 in the two months that I've had it at home, I find it is not that difficult anymore. We have to learn to adapt to change.
  11. Personally, I still use my Garmin GPSMap78sc. I have it loaded with Upper Midwest Fishing Info and a Minnesota Topo product and love it. I use it for hunting, ATV riding, and fishing. I'll use it until it won't work anymore.
  12. Most of the time I just use the Dale's as a marinade. Brush it on before grilling.
  13. It's good stuff. I use it with chicken, pork, beef, venison, fish, you name it. I can get it locally at Elden's in Alexandria.
  14. That is how my 1T external HDD is. There is a 12v power supply and a USB connection.
