    I'm 90% sure I briefly saw him at the Denver airport once a year or so ago. I wasn't about to go running through the terminal to find out if it was him but remember doing a double take when I was walking past the electronic people mover thing he was standing on, going the opposite direction.

    I'm also not sure WTF is up with those shoes.

    When I first looked at the pic, I thought he was wearing my orange mountain biking shoes.

    I bought them because they were ugly...

    More Context to the pic above:



    I loved seeing that in the other picture, especially in regards to the ships namesake, in the back of my mind though I am thinking I hope the upper echelon means it.

    All this talk of standowns for extremism and new oaths......I hope that display is a message "American Patriotism and love of our history is not Extremism".

    Were your findings good, bad, or indifferent?
    I would typically load for a single rifle. That being said I'm in a quandary so this is my solution. I have a set of twin match rifles and spare barrels to install with specific components to last 5 barrels.They are non factory rounds though. I want to leave 1 with a friend so I can fly from jobsotes to matches and shoot. So I want to use this to tune both rifles to the same load.... silly but oh well

    What kind of Olive tree Mike?

    And dang, thats some weight on that bugger for sure!!
    i dont know stud, it wasnt my deal. mr hefty there, got the contract but it was to heavy for him and he is family, not but is, so i did the lifting and moving.
    i do know the tree came in from cali and i believe it to be a couple hundred years old. isaw, about 10 years ago and at a tree farm we buy from, olive trees from greece that were thousands of years old, no bullshit.
    the crane can handle more weight, just, not in those soft ground conditions, its gets the butthole watertight swinging those things over the edge of the truck bed.

    Mr Hefty. Thats funny.
    Homie should do a little cardio.....
    Perhaps switch to light beer. 😱


    Cool stuff though.

    Not sure if it helps you, but had some guys doing some work once who brought many sheets of OSB. Stacked 2 perpendicular to each other with centers of boards close to lined up with one another.
    had been really wet and the crew boss said otherwise they would sink in bad.
    just spread it out enough.
    Yard was normal where they had parked, which surprised me. I thought i might be fixing ruts....

    Would not want to be mr hefty come July down there!

    Is that dark sand common down there? Does it smell organic? A lot prettier dirt than I thought y'all would have.

    They started the dig before I got there, so when I did walk up to the hole, the first thing I asked was how good the dirt smelled. It is perfect garden dirt and almost as dark as I've seen down here, but most of everything we grow, both landscape wise and ag wise, prefers more sand in the dirt.
    Everything here likes water but doesn't like wet feet.
    Generally the older neighborhoods and places near the lakes will have the good dirt like you see.
    Dirt is like hay, it needs to smell good otherwise you will have problems.
    Mr hefty IS old florida, he can take the heat, fo shizzle x 2, lol. That man can work. He's in his 60s

    Life and Home Depot are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’ll get. 🤷‍♂️

    I needed some shelves (7) for my loading room and saw where I could get what I wanted from HD. So, I go online and find that my store which is about ten miles away only has (2). I do the search and find more are available in a town about twenty miles the other way and while doing this I notice FREE next day shipping. COOL! I place my order for (7) shelves w/next day FREE shipping and get a confirmation.

    Now fast forward and today is the next day and about 11:AM I see Mr. FedEx coming up the drive! As I walk out to tell him not to bring the box to the house, I see him unloading several boxes and scanning them. I said I’ll take it from here because it’s going to the barn and he hands off a box and as I’m walking, I notice he’s coming along behind with two more boxes.

    I asked what’s all that and he said I don’t know but they’re yours. :unsure: They shipped (7) 12” X 48” shelves from three different stores to me next day for free! And they must be running their buy shelves and get a "Free Squeegee" sale because that was in one of the boxes. What a great store!

    Lots of this in my future. Road tripping it to FL with the family. We should be in Georgia when the sun starts coming up.

    Now that the twins are 16, we've got four drivers so we're rotating through the drivers seat every few hours.

    Sleeping in a vehicle is absolutely horrible.
