Take it with you lazy pigs

Recommended Posts

Did anyone read the article in the Outdoornews about all the 1 lb propane cylinders people are leaving on the ice? It's on page 8 if anyone is interested. With the ice season winding down I wonder how much litter lazy pigs are going to leave behind. IF YOU BRING IT WITH YOU, YOU CAN TAKE IT HOME TOO!!! mad.gif

I myself have been wondering if I need trailer behind my 6x6, I always have to stop and pickup pop cans, plastic Milk jugs and even minnow buckets and yes I have the 1 lb cylinders also. I don't know what people are thinking. mad.gif

this for one is a subject that gets brought up on this site all the time and like always stated , the ones that do this are unfortunatly not reading this. probabaly because they do not have the abuility to read. i am sorry but when i drive off my favorite landing every day and see garbage that has been left from these lazy buttheads. i get totally eurked. there was a television dropped off the other day by someone. and the only reason i did not pick it up is the cost in getting rid of it. the dnr does not have the extra funds to put dumpsters at the landings. and even if they did there would be more non fishing people useing them. than anything else. i also stop to pick up things that have been tossed out of vehicles onto the ice. and at the landings. i also participate in an ice cleanup day before ice out if there is one. but the thing is we should not have to do this. i was always taught. take only pictures and leave only foot prints. and i practice what i preach. you cant imagine how my blood boils when i see litter on the ice, landings. or along side the road. infact the other day i caught some nomind tossing garbage in my dumpster at work. after giving him a royal hindside chewing out, i did inform him that if i caught him doing this again i would detain him and call the police. it is a pretty sick thing that you can not provide your own means to dispose of the waste you incurr. but like i said the poor buttheads that are doing this are not reading this. because i know that the members of this site would never stoop to something as low as littering or tresspassing on a private dumpster. but lurkers beware. if i catch you, i have a camera and a cell phone. you WILL get busted. and i will take time off of work to see you prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. ... paul

Well put... As a Biology teacher, I couldn't agree more. Our environment is too often taken advantage of. It is sad that people that partake in the sport of fishing are so ignorant that they do not see the big picture.

I agree that the people that post here, for the most part, are not the lake trashers. Last winter, at the Cats On Ice event, I was helping to tear down and so was one of the last ones to leave. There was over a hundred people there and aside from ice holes and tire tracks, you couldn't tell that people had been there. At one point, a guy dropped a cigarette butt(filthy habit) and I almost bumped heads as two of us right behind him both bent down at the same time to pick it up. I have a special compartment under the seat of my flipover for trash. Most trips, its just not big enough. frown.gif

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
