My lease is pretty large, and after a 30 minute truck/ATV trip to a prime spot last year, I dropped both my primer caps swatting mosquitoes, waiting on the thermacell to get warmed up. Swore I'd never get in the stand with primer caps again.
Made good on that promise today, by entering the expos...
| Outdoor Board|| What I learned today - bendellee on 7/1/14 at 12:39 am|
The oil capacity of my truck exceeds that of my oil pan--considerably.
Tomorrow I will learn whether a 15 degree nozzle on a 4k psi washer can remove oil stains.
Also I learned that the oil filter placement on a 5.4 Ford motor was chosen by either service managers to deter self maintenance, or...

So I walk into the shed this morning, and one of my dogs is just laying there with heavy, labored breathing. He was unable to lift his head, and I saw where he'd crapped in the bed (solid) which is unlike him. He may crap in my bed, but never his own.
I pick him up and take him to the vet, and ...

My nerves still ain't right. Neither are his.
Not me in the pic (my brother); I'm off to the side changing drawers.

| Outdoor Board|| Paint Gun Question (Paint, not Paintball) - bendellee on 5/15/12 at 1:15 pm|
Since I'm painting outdoors, I thought I could put this here.
Is there any airless/electric paint sprayer worth its cost?
I've had the compressor driven kind, but they just aren't worth the hassle of dragging out the compressor, etc., and then the ~ 50 piece clean up and re-assembly.
