Franconia Weekend Outing

Recommended Posts

Hello all. Looking forward to the weekend and a good time. Probably arrive about 1:00 pm on Friday. Will be

commuting back and forth from Laughlin so will probably miss Rick's Chili but will be there for the Saturday evening

get together. Good luck to all in the field. --Perry--

Aha, so you will be there for the steak and lobster meat eh! :innocent0009: Well bring your appetite cause I am trying out a new cooking recipe with the slipper lobster meat that should prove pretty darn good. :brows: See you then! :cool04:

Aloha, Stan aka Kaimi :banged:

Aloha and also counting down the days. Just got back from picking up some firewood. All my camping gear has been checked and double-checked and is sitting in the garage just waiting to be loaded.

Aloha ,Stan aka Kaimi :banged:

BTW, weather looking good so far. Checked with wunderground and it states that it should be in the mid to low 50 with sunshine. BUT the nites will be in the mid 30's. :yikes:

OH YEAH! Make sure you bring some pepto bismal if you have a weak tummy. :brows:

Tastes great and will keep you warm all night long if you go back for seconds. :hmmmmmm:

BTW, just got back from BassProand picked up a couple of Midland LXT322 for $19.88 less the charger. I figured that since I am in the field away from any power source for a couple of days it did not make sense to pay the extra $30 when I have access to a ton of AAA batteries. Will be on channel 6 during this outing FYI!

Jeep already packed and ready to go. In the meantime I am using my other car to get around. Bring your binocs and if you got one a spotting scope or telescope for the meteor shower this weekend. Should be interesting to see who stays up late. :coffeetime:

Aloha till then,

Stan aka Kaimi

Hey Rick the rule of thumb on eBay is that it's best to wait 30 days before filing a claim for anything (even PayPal disputes). If the guy shipped it via priority snail mail (USPS) it should take a minimum of three working days to get you. However you have to realize it's the USPS' crunch time right now and it might take a little bit longer than normal. Don't know why the guy shipped it USPS, I would think UPS or FedEx is a better choice for shipping an item like a detector. Get the tracking number if you can and check it on the USPS website.

I've sold my fair share of things through eBay and I've shipped through USPS quit a few times. Overall the USPS does a decent job, but sometimes (more often than UPS or FedEx) there packages arrive a lot later than expected.

You know Rick, I'm willing to bet it's a problem with the post office especially this time of the year. Try to get a tracking number from the guy, he should be able to give you one. As for the filed dispute, I'd stop it and hold off until after thirty days.

You gotta realise once the person ships the item out, it out of their hands.

Well the DETECTOR plot thickens....the seller say they had no tracking number just a confermation number. If you check it is says no records found so the seller thinks it might have been stolen

off of the poarch when it was wating to be picked up by mail carrier....they did offer a refund and I told them to send it. So as it stands I guess I ain't gonna git my GM4B like I thought.

Hmmmm :hmmmmmm: is this a SIGN...I bought one and it was defective....bought another and it is missing.....I just thought I was going to get out and hunt...oh well :outtahere:

Wahooooooo! :ROFL:

NO ANAL SPHERIC PRESSURE RELEASE FOR YOU GUYS! :bowdown:

We will be lucky indeed because the skunk may indeed like them fumes. :nutty:

I see that Del will be bringing his GMT so you may have a chance to get out in the field anyway to find that elusive rock with your name on it. See nice things happen to nice people! :winking0023:

Will be there VERY EARLY friday morning, probably just before sunrise. Will be bringing a box of donuts so we can get that sugar rush and get an early start.

Aloha till then,

Stan aka Kaimi :ph34r2:

Her kidneys have shut down,her heart is weak, she is having great trouble breathing and her liver is starting to fail....

The Docs said they have done all they can do, no they will make her comfortable and ...................

So I am not going to make this outing after all.....I am sorry but I have to be here.....

Hey Rick, I'm sorry to hear about your mom. Go take care of her because she's more important. There will be plenty of other outings to go to in the future. God bless.

Fortunately my mom got out of the hospital today and she's doing fine so I'm still in for this weekend.

Moni- Sooner or later your gonna have to come out and do a little bit of hunting with us. Alot of us here wouldn't mind teaching you how to effectively hunt meteorites with a metal detector if you don't already know how. Trust me you'll have a blast!

Rick,

Your mom will always come first, so be with her as long as it takes. If it helps I will be in touch with my "Sister" at the convent and ask her to have the nuns there say mass for her tomorrow. Check your PM's.

Take care and God bless.

Keep in touch and let us know if we can help in any way.

Aloha and take care,

Stan aka Kaimi
