Picked up another Baofeng before the new laws go into effect. May get another one here soon, don't know how they are going to "police" the manufacturers overseas after the 30th.

Went out hunting and got into some elk. No luck again, but man, they are the coolest animals.

Neighbor of ours gave us the green light to go on their property and snatch up some apples from their trees. They are tiny apples, but they make good apple sauce and filling. Ill head over there with some 5 gallon buckets when I can.

Why a ban? I thought that was just a passing thing?

I bought some rice and beans today.

Default prep today

As of last night, I have a 20x20x 6-high of firewood rounds waiting to be split by snow season. I use about 3 cords a winter and this will give me a 4-year supply.

I just ordered a good fencing tool so I can tighten my wires on fence bordering a cattle rancher so open space laws don't keep messing me up. Also ordered an inexpensive tactical flashlight.

Finished the AR47 build (7.62x39 on a AR frame) It shoots nice with very little barrel lift with the compensator I installed.

I am thinking about getting the .410 upper. That way with one platform I can shoot .22 lr, .223, 5.56, 7.62 and .410. With one case I would have the lower and three uppers with the .22 lr conversion kit. I could hunt just about anything including small game and birds. Reminds me of the old Valmet shooter system

Neighbor allowed me to pick more apples. I also got a case of some gala apples at 50 cents a pound that I'll mix in. I just purchased an industrial Apple peeler, tired of using the hand peeler.

Thanks BB.

That's pretty amazing, thank you. I have two good friends who died on 9.11.01 only they didn't realize they were killed until 10.16.08 and 09.16.09

I added to the firearm collection... that I lost in a boating accident. Picked up a BNIB Weatherby Vanguard Weatherguard in .223, and a Remington 700 in .243. I may have to hid the Weatherby, as it fires the same deadly .223 that those evil assault rifles do. I bet I could kill a dump truck with one round. I really like the 700. It has a beautiful Maple stock from Boyd's. Way better than factory plastic crap.

The other day, I scored a dozen whole dressed young chickens all under $3 bucks each.
Far cheaper than I can raise them.
And, I don't have to kill, pluck, dress them out, package & freeze them.

I am going to butterfly, bake, part out boneless & can them.
All American 941 holds 18 quart jars & makes canning go fast

Nice find! I rarely find whole chickens for less than 5 bucks a peice. Hope you have a pot big enough for all that stock!

Prepping for a marathon canning session tomorrow with the apples I have. Im guessing I'll get 25 quarts or so.

It's bunkwrbuster... He probably has a pot big enough to cook a semi. And a flame thrower to get it lit.

LOL, I do have several LARGE stock pots. Only because our BOL kitchen is set up to cook for & feed 25.



If its a really big job, I can fire up the boiler & use the big steam kettle.

Got a used Suzuki King Quad 300. 4X4 and has three ranges on the 5 speed, super low, low and high.

Now just need to outfit it with stuff like extra gas, chains, rifle rack, GHB, air pump/tire plug kit, more tools.

Heck, I was looking at the SINK! I want a triple sink like that...I'd be able to wash my stock pots and canners in it, instead of having to use the bathtub!

On a semi related note. Made some soup tonight using some of my pressure canned chicken stock. First time ever using something from the pressure canner. Turned out great!

Tonight I unloaded my big trailer in preparation to move some stuff from storage this weekend. I was able to stack all the wood, separating it by type and size.
Using the wagoneer to tow that big (20') trailer will be a struggle due to bad gearing. I'll just keep the load light and go slow.
