Tips on how to bury a cache tube

Green PVC is better then white.  The green stuff has a life expectancy of around 800 years, buried and full of sewage. Yep, that last part is correct, the green stuff is sewage pipe. So be sure to get it new and not used. One end cap does not need to be glued on. To make that seal, use heavy duty water proof wheel bearing grease for boat trailers.  Boat trailer wheel bearing grease is designed to be submerged in water. Spread it around the outside of the pipe on the end that the cap will not be glued on. Spread it on thick, as the cap goes on it will push the extra in front of the cap, building up a bead of grease.

Youtube censorship of hunting videos

Since when is hunting considered animal cruelty? Well, it seems that the management of youtube thinks that hunting is just that, animal cruelty. Or, is youtube bowing to political pressure? Over the past few months youtube has started removing hunting videos. The reason –  hunting videos depict animal cruelty. One of my videos that showed how to skin a squirrel was removed from youtube.

On that same day I sent an email back to the people at youtube asking if I could get a reason “why” the video was removed. Four days later and Continue Reading….

Hurricane Rita Review

When Hurricane Rita made landfall it was the fourth-most intense Atlantic Hurricane ever recorded and the most intense tropical cyclone ever observed in the Gulf of Mexico. After Rita made landfall in southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana, the storm caused $11.3 billion in damage. The following story is my personal account of the days right before Rita made landfall, lessons learned, the actual landfall and the following days. Wednesday morning it looked like Rita might hit Houston so my ex wife brought my youngest kids ages 9 and 11 to Bridge City Texas where my parents live, from there they (my kids and parents, not exwife) were going to evacuate to Jasper – to my house. Wednesday noon my 16 year old calls me, ask Continue Reading….

Coleman exponent sleeping bag review

An unbiased review of the Coleman exponent sleeping bag by trained professionals (not really). Both of my kids liked the sleeping bag and found the bag to be comfortable. But, the bag is supposed to have a comfort rating of 32 degrees. Even with temps around 36 degrees, my daughter was still cold. But my son slept good. Here are their stories. Even though my daughter had a US Army Poncho liner and a fleece blanket in the sleeping bag with her, she was still cold. It might have helped if she would have had a sleeping pad between the ground and the sleeping bag. But we did not have any pads with us, just a poncho thrown on the ground. I told her she Continue Reading….

Who is to blame for our current situation?

Who is to blame for this nations current situation? If you voted for president bush 8 or 4 years ago – I blame you. If you voted for your current elected official – I blame you. If you voted third party, against your current elected official or against george bush 8 and 4 years ago – you are not to blame. Put the blame where is should lie – at the feet of the people that elected these bozos. I hope you are proud of yourself. If you have a comment, post it in the this thread of the political forum.
