  1. My thought is that if you are going to use this for the full season is to invest into a handful of 2x4's and a sheet or 2 of plywood and create a floor! overall you will be warmer and not have to worry about animals and water from the ground. use screws to connect everything and then at the end of the season unscrew it and you will have scrap wood or it will be ready to reassemble next time you need a place to stay.
  2. tomorrow is an arm roast on the Traeger...
  3. wow those are either really big or the 3rd one in the picture is really small! I will say you would be surprised that you don't necessarily need to go that deep. Caught a lot of my walleyes on original floaters over the deep water. Good Luck and I hope when you do connect over the deep water, it is a monster of a fish!!
  4. I keep forgetting to run a spoon...I have been running rapalas again this year with little success over the deep water. I have ran shallow and deep divers but not as "hot" of action as we had in years past. The fish are still there but not attacking the same as they historically have. Great to hear you are catching some nice eyes on Superior! Sounds like a great trip to land a few lakers and then a few eyes to top it off.
  5. listening to the FAN Outdoors the other week the bait shop that they speak with often stated that minnows in the summer become almost impossible to keep alive due to some factors with a protective slime (?) and that is why you don't see them sold as frequently in the summer. I maybe off on some information along with it but was interesting to say the least...
  6. I have this issue with my dad's boat when loading. seems no matter what we do sometimes, the only way to get it on the trailer straight is to hold the boat while pulling out of the water...not ideal especially with only one person...
  7. i have had clients that have the Sea Legs and use them as their lift. the issue came when the waves became an issue and the Sea Legs bent. one owner could not do anything other than call the manufacturer of the Sea Legs and they had to set up a time to come to his pontoon and disable and remove the legs because they would no longer retract due to the bend in the sea legs. IMO great to have for pulling up to sand bars but no way would I use them as my main lift system.
  8. update: we used air pads on the current mattress this weekend and slept a lot better and now our new mattress arrived so we get to test that out this weekend! So far we are getting used to camper life on the weekends and will take some adjusting. I had to return the camper for maintenance as we have found a few issues that were needing to be resolved. So far the sales place (Roth RV) has been wonderful to work with!!
  9. I have been smoking burgers wrapped in a strip of bacon lately and they are wonderful! I use Mesquite wood for an hour and half. First hour at 250 and bump up to 270 for the final half hour and they come out very tasty!!!
  10. Thanks for all the information!! I am now debating myself (at least I should win!) on if I should go with regular mattress, and if we can't fold up the murphy bed oh well, or if I should get a hinged mattress so to use the function of the couch with the bed folded up. I am leaning at a regular mattress, as I think with the hinged mattress, one would still "fall" into the hinged section making for an uncomfortable sleep. I like the idea of a mattress topper but I wonder if I will still fall into the hinged void.
  11. So with the virus and uncertainty of the world, my family decided to purchase a travel trailer to be able to go north this summer. We bought a 2020 Salem FSX 179DBK. Nice unit and checks our needs. We are parking at my inlaws so we don't "infect" their home yet can go north and hang out with them. The first night sleeping in the trailer was horrible!!! We have a murphy queen bed and first order of business will be to replace the mattress. Anyone have recommendations? Also any tips to a newbie would be appreciated.
  12. Well I just finished the walls for my indoor gym. Have a weight set for bench and a curl bar n rack along with dumbbells. I also have a treadmill, rowing machine and a recently purchased elliptical. The problem is when i went to put elliptical together a wire had been damaged so I have to get a replacement part and a service call to the house...probably won't have that up and running anytime soon! But along with all that getting out walking and playing with the kids in the yard has been the healthy options to stay fit in our household!!! Sure glad I built a sauna in the house last year!!
  13. Usually your home insurance will worry if you have a solid fuel device such as a wood stove or a pellet stove to heat the garage but it is always a good idea to check with your agent for your policy coverage and verify that you are not causing a coverage issue.
  14. I have found that a 2.5/2.5/1 has been great for me! My family loves fall off the bone ribs and the extra time in the foil with apple juice really makes for a tender rib. I also agree that taking the membrane off helps. My mouth is watering thinking of ribs...looks like it is a trip to the store for some weekend smoking!!
