New South Wales

Well, things have been kinda quiet so I ran across this and just decided to post for everyone's enjoyment! Just the kind of motorcycle thing I could get into. May even be better than motorcycle demolition derby!! Of course, it is very difficult to beat motorcycle demolition derby....! https://www.fa...

Oh, mannnnn....just looked and they are there! How bizarre. Just gotta love electronic stuff. That kind of "slip" is why I never trust an ATM - don't even have a pin number.

Re: Missing Photo's?

Well, shoot... I just went to my old tornado post and found that all the images appear to be 'gone'. I was gonna share it with someone. The pics are still located in the same photobucket location they were in. I guess I need to go through and redo that whole thing??

Re: Peel and stick solar panels

Our state in it's infinite lack of wisdom passed a law last year that allows - actually appears to require - that electric utilities must charge home/business owners who install solar to pay a "fee" that can be as much as $25,000. I am not sure what to expect when I get started on this - need the g...

Re: Battery Price

Great! That is good info that I have been wondering about. I will probably go lead acid for the first project - a small backup system just to run heater and refrigerator during short term power outages like snowstorms. Am also looking at larger system for new place. I am planning to expand the searc...

Re: Hay, and the unroller.

Have been using photobucket/tinypic for photos for several years and when I started this thread it seemed very cumbersome to deal with...more - a pain in the butt! They always had lots of ads, but they seemed to just surround me and try to get attention. Last few times I have tried to use it, they a...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

What/where was the final destination? The bus rally.... We drove to Las Vegas last Monday (11/21) and I may have seen that train along I-40....or any one of quite a few that seem to travel east/west out there! Got to go over the new bridge at the dam. Saw the water was thousands of feet lower than t...

Re: Have you considered the weight?

Last time I operated a crane was lifting signs at a sign shop when I was 15 in the mid 60's - the cranes of that day seemed to me to be death traps. I am wondering if there have been improvements in the underlying safety mechanisms - the one thing that comes to mind is some kind of "quick release" a...

Re: Fun with tornadoes...not so much!

My little corner of paradise! The green Dodge is mine - the Road Toad - and to the right, there is a Lance laying on it's side. That came from the left side of the road and slammed into my home - can just barely see the front of it above/behind the side trailer. I had lots of damage to the trailer a...

Re: Fun with tornadoes...not so much!

Early in this, I showed a pile of 7 large 5th wheels. This is the back side of that pile. The brown truck had been thrown up against a trailer, then the red one was lifted and leaned against the brown one. There was a guy thrown out of one of those and kind of flung around like a rag doll. He was ap...

Re: Fun with tornadoes...not so much!

Walt and Nadine are two people who have been there almost as long as I have - about 1 year less. Older, less healthy. Walt got out of hospital after surgery on Tues. Storm hit on Wed. They couldn't get to the park tornado shelters, so rode it out. Behind the white camper truck is what theirs looked ...

Re: Fun with tornadoes...not so much!

Good to see you back, Dennis! Oklahoma is a rough neighborhood in recent years! Add earthquakes to the list, now. Fun and games. I took a couple hundred pics of this - and no, don't worry, I am not gonna inflict all that on here. Just some of what I thought were the most memorable - ones that stick ...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

I have been thinking about Suburbans again...came close to buying one with an Airstream a long time ago. Would be nice to get with the Duramax diesel and Allison transmission, I think.
