Cats code- All Hail The Fire Box !!!
Will work for booze thanks brother!!!
Oh and I oinked a little today...
Also, that's only one if very few wrapped ton I have seen tied down in the back of a pickup. Then again, most are shortbed crew cabs so ff its longer than a 5' shortbed, makes sense
There's a lot of windy roads to and from Will's house and I don't drive exactly slow... Lol. Better safe than having to pick them up on the side of the road!
Yeah, I tend to err on the caution side so I would do the same.
The only times I have hauled full tons was with the Avalanche that we just traded in. That had a very heavy rubber mat and nothing would move. It actually was a PITA trying to get anything out of the bed.
My honey traded that in 2 weeks ago for a new GMC Sierra that has the spray liner-I doubt things would be held in place so much with that, and its the 6' bed.
I like it Snowy. Good design.
Knowing I had a ride today I got the 4th mowing of the leaves done Thursday night. Yard is still relatively leaf free since there hasn't been any wind.
This morning I was at the dump at 9 am, when they open, stopped at Gumbies for some energy bars, then back to the house to get all gearded up for riding. It was 43* when I left the house so had on my heated gear - but didn't plug it in for the first part of the ride (to the dealership 30 miles away to meat up with the Chapter). Plugged it in and left it on low while we did a Scarecrow ride thru Chester and surrounding communities. We stopped for lunch somewhere in Derry, rode some more then finally got home about 4:15 Gave the cats treats (too early for dinner), started laundry then got on FB to purloin Chapter member pictures for when I create the quarterly newsletter.
Time to feed the cats and birds, change the laundry from the washer to the drier and do the dishes. Later I plan on watching TWD (DVR'ed from earlier in the week).
Is the the ton of Virginia Goldens softies from TSC?
Yes! It worked out good the only two places in the area that have the Gold's were the Quakertown and Brodheadsville stores. I had to go up to Will's on Saturday to fix his stove so I stopped by the Brodheadsville one which is only 10 minutes away from his house LOL
I guess you must all be watching The Essence of Emeril on Dabl.
How did you know.
I could not get the vac and box down to clean yesterday, abbreviated cleaning just now, high today about 15*, low tonight 5* and more cold to come. Exhaust access panels, WWW scraped the exchange tubes (blasted long wire brush I cannot get up if I manage to force it down (5 tubes), and vacuumed that passage on the bottom, and stuck the shop vac over the ignitor & tube for a few seconds. It's igniting right now, hope it's a bit happier.
And 27 minutes later we finally have ignition!!!! (augers, after I got those turning I looked again and burn pot was not properly seated. Convection blower finally kicked on.) Woooo Heat!!
Well most of the folks on here are only thinking with and about their tummies.
Made an interesting discovery.
We have been burning the nut shells for 27 years and always had to deal with a clinker issue.
Every 6 hours or so on the wee stove ...We do the POT SWISH maneuver..
Turn off the feed and let the fire burn down some...then pop the door open and knock the crap out of the fire pot..
Leave a bit of coals...turn on the feed and good to go.
Big stove is not as fussy, but needs a pot swish once a day.
Fast forward to a week or so ago and we are running the materials we grind with Munchy and the wee stove will burn all night and still have a usable amount of space in the fire pot by morning.
We have 15 barrels of the old materials from 2 years ago on hand and need to get it used up.
Nice sized material....butttttttttttttttttttttttttt.....the fines apparently have a lot of DIRT in it...and that stuff does not burn, just makes a hard clinker.
Gonna be really nice when we get that stuff gone and replace it with the stuff from Munchy.
The new stuff makes a hotter fire too....
The larger pieces burn longer and hold the fire better.
The price to pay for munching them yourself there's always a happy ending you just got to believe
I always tie mine down, usually use 2 straps.
