  13. Hey Rick, I have a project for you. I want a 8' dog leash that has a Y on the dog end with each short leg about 18" and the terminal end to have some sort of latch. This will be a dog leash to walk two dogs at a time. Subdues or camo like colors would work. Can you do it?
  14. Matt, you can store the crusher at my place anytime! And, that one time Matt turned on his 5000 he was his usual self and popped out a nugget in his first few minutes.

  16. Was a great surprise to hear a Rokon off in the distance then have you pop right into our camp.....hope to see Ya out here again
  17. I got to enjoy what were called LRRP rations. Pretty much a completed dehydrated meal in a bag. You could put water in it, put it in your pants cargo pocket and have a warm meal whenever you wanted. They were OK, but our Vietnamese counterparts had the same kind of meals but geared toward their tastes. Those were outstanding and we would always trade, they liked ours,better than theirs.
  18. We have had sightings around Foresthill too
  19. We will be moving to Jack Ass Flats tomorrow. Hope to stay there long enough to pick up a few buckets if any are left
