    Backup sump pump

    Watch your City Ordinances. Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working. After that the water driven sump pump will kick in. The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower). Cities keep the tower full for fire protection

    Insulating low piched roof rafters?

    Google a hot roof system--spray the foam on the bottom of the roof, and you will be fine!!!

    Building up a seasonally wet trail

    Delcecchi: In this case all of the named parties knew of the road, and said they would watch it, but did nothing about it--As I said it is purely political

    Building up a seasonally wet trail

    Trails thru wetlands are purely political, and who you know. I personally know of a situation in western Minnesota where the owner was told there was no way an owner of a duck hunting point would be able to build a road out to the point. After a few years of fighting the road was built. The owner was told the road would be no wider than that to drive a four-wheeler on. The road was built so a farmer could drive a 4-wheel tractor on it. It was built upat least 3 feet. This situation is not what others in this post have seen--this situation was purely political and who you know--a real shame for our wetlands!!

    Shot A Big One In the Guts.....

    My hat is off to you for sticking to it to find your trophy!! A question for all on the side--does this Buck need to be tagged?? I know of the same situation in Minnesota, and no-one can tell me if the buck was "taken", thus requiring tagging.
  6. I have a 2008 Chevy Avalanche, and the gauges do not work occasionally. Sometimes the needles all peg to the bottom of the gauge for a day or so, then they return to working properly. Seems like a ground issue. I have cleaned the ground on both ends, and the problem will still occur. Anyone have any ideas??

    Xcel Energy???

    You can thank your legislators for this increase--it will not be the last!!! 25% renewable by 2025, and another program called CIP--which is legislated to conserve power (If I remember 3% per year) all reduce power consumption, but they all cost money!!! Everyone thinks the wind generators are a beautiful thing that saves money. Bottom line they cost companies like Excel a great amount of money due to the fact our "legislators" force the purchase of "green" power even if power companies can generate it cheaper--thus costing money and making companies like Excel raise their rates.It seems like they are regulated to cut their own throat!! Wind power will not be cheaper until there are more transmission lines, and storage vehicles (batteries) to store the generated electricity until it is used. Enough of the rant--Bottom line--thank your local legislator--do not condemn Excel. No other business is mandated to cut the product they make (in this case electricity) and reduce their rates!! It seems to me, that they are regulated to cut their own throat!!

    Jewell Outdoors

    I ordered 2 pounds of jumbo leeches from Mark. Family problems changed my plans many times, which meant I continuously changed the date I needed the leeches shipped. Mark was always there telling me the leeches would be here when I needed them. He is a real class act--full of cutsomer service. Prompt replies from e-mails sent, delivery when I wanted, and a great looking bunch of leeches. I definitely will order from them again and again. It is not easy to find an establishment that values costumer service--Jewell Outdoors really does!!! They will go a long way with attitudes and products like they have. THANKS again Mark!!!

    Zone 4 Pistol

    I would like to use a Thompson Contender in 30-30 caliber to hunt in Zone 4 (shotgun) I looked in the 2006 regulations and do not see the 30-30 caliber as a legal handgun. It is listed in the approved rifle cartridges. Does that mean I can use it in a handgun???
