  1. Darn Tough. Spring, summer, fall and winter. Boot height full cushion. Been wearing 7 pairs for three years now and doesn't look like I'll be using their guarantee any time soon.
  2. Best dog I ever had was a yellow Lab named Nala.
  3. For water like that, I prefer a 7' 4wt with a med/fast action.
  4. Lots of good luck with your purchase! I should consider selling mine. Since my buddy passed I really don't get to use it much.
  5. That's right! Freedom above all else! Millions have died for it, and you and others like you are more than willing, eager even, to go belly up and give it all away. Its disgusting.
  6. I alternate between Keen Pyrenees and Irish Setter Ravines and can't decide which I like better. I have both for 3 years now, and wear one or the other almost everyday of the year, and neither is showing any sign of giving up soon. There's a brand new pair of each sitting in the closet for when I eventually need a backup. They can both be found for right around $100-$120 if you catch a sale.
  7. Oh yeah, that'll do! Very cool and thanks for sharing. Gotta love a 7-08.
  8. Exactly why I haven't called.
  9. That wait is killer, isn't it !?!? The only thing more stressful is being a single teenager and waiting for the results of a pregnancy test. I probably have at least another two months until I hear anything about the Muley I shot and delivered to the taxi in Wyoming on Oct 2. I'm so tempted to call for a status, but I hate to be that guy. I like full sneak mounts on whitetails. Enjoy him.
  10. Glad you're going to give it a shot! I used to love hunting and fishing there in my younger days, back in the '70s. Please post back or PM with your impressions.
  11. To my mind, very few professions as noble as nursing. I wish you all the best.
  12. Another vote for Carmines for Italian. 44th St. Times Square For steaks, my two favs are either Smith & Wollensky at 3rd Ave and 49th (east side) St., or Old Homestead on 9th Ave at 15th St. (west side) I know you didn't ask, but great Chinese at Mee Noodle Shop on Second Ave and 49th St. Katz for pastrami and a knish.
  13. I have had 4 Stradic 4000FGs on Teramar rods, on the boat for about 5 years now, down here on the Gulf coast of Fl. I fish inshore at least a couple days a week for about 6-7 months a year. I keep them cleaned and lubed and change out the drags once a year and they've been work horses.
  14. You didn't think those stimulus checks were free did you? Oh, you did?
  15. The cops should have been kickin' ass and takin' names before the victim even had to draw his weapon. AND, to be clear, I am pro police. I've had/have quite a few in my family. The decisions to allow this BS to happen unabated, comes from the PC pussies in command.
  16. Unreal how the cops let the crowd abuse this man and destroy his property without stepping in. But they were there in an instant when he dared to defend himself. Had they done the right thing to begin with, the victim would not have needed to resort to a display of deadly force. Had someone died in this incident, I would lay a lot of the blame at the cops' feet, along with that crowd of jackals. I also agree with Buckmaster7600. Cocked and locked or don't bother carrying.
  17. I believe they have a free 30 day trial for their basic plan. The premium plan that I paid for, gives access to a lot more info, and for all 50 states, as opposed to just one. Keep an eye out, since they frequently run a nice discount sale.
  18. I have no experience with OnX, but when I was researching, a bunch of the guys on Rokslide who had multiple apps, preferred Gaia GPS. That's the way I went and have been very happy with it so far. It's not free though.
  19. Congrats to mom and dad, she's a cutie pie. Welcome baby girl!
  20. How about the headwaters of the Willowemoc, near Claryville? Follow Flugertown Rd. way up, into the back. It gets pretty rough. There are primitive state camp sites back there. There's also a trail head that will lead to Long Pond and a state lean to. Don't know if Long Pond contains any fish, but the brooks and streams that comprise the head waters are teeming with native Brookies. Just a bit further downstream, Browns and Rainbows will be available as well. I cut my teeth deer hunting around there in the early '70s. It's a really beautiful area.
  21. I agree with everything Steve D has told you. Consistency and repetition is everything in archery. I would add, in case you're not aware, that an archery shot involves 7 steps. They are stance, nock, draw, anchor, aim, release and follow through. You should be mindful of each step for every shot until it becomes as natural as breathing. Good luck. It'll come, be patient.
  22. Lots of satisfaction and piece of mind.
  23. Oh, believe me, I feel your pain. Just last week, I finished the third and final bathroom in my house. I started the demo the first week in January! I went through the exact same crap you did. Plus I had to chop up 3' each of the toilet and shower waste lines, under concrete deck, and redo them. Nothing plumb or square, wired for fire, uneven concrete deck, late delivery or damaged materials that had to be reordered. The granite vanity top showed up cracked, along with the back splash. It took over a month for the replacement to arrive. Then throw the wife's constant indecision into that mix!
  24. Thanks, Grouse. First thing I did was strip the bolt and clean it, even though it already was pristine. Also cleaned it when I first purchased it, as I do with all my firearms. It's only got about 50 rounds through it and never been hunted.
