I had one registered, but I had receipts for an axle, tires coupler, lights, etc. plus a bill of sale for a "trailer frame". I was told they were primarily interested in the receipt for the axle. I got all the parts needed including the axle for a little over $200 at Herb's on Plank. ...

If you think you will need it, add pvc under the decking so that you can run speaker wire or low voltage lighting cable in the future. Glad I did that because I added omni directional speakers in the landscaping behind the pool after the pool was finished....

I did a poured in place concrete counter top using Quikcrete countertop mix purchased at Home Depot. When I researched the process, I read that you shouldn't attach it to the substrate so cracks won't transfer through the base. I used plastic sheeting between the cmu base and the countertop. I als...

I'd check to see if an abrasive, metal cutoff saw has enough capacity. Just replace the blade. I have a Harbor Freight model that was around $100 and it has at least a 14" blade. There are also masonry cutting chop saws that will cut cinder blocks, but those are probably expensive....

Here's more info regarding fishing in the park:
Lures, Bait, and Equipment
Fishing is permitted only by the use of one hand-held rod.
Only artificial flies or lures with a single hook may be used. Dropper flies may be used. Up to two flies on a leader.
Use or possession of any form of ...

If you decide to flyfish, just go to the flyshop in Gatlinburg when you get there. You can get your license(s) there. They can tell you what is the hot fly. What is catching now likely won't work in August. If I remember correctly, there is a state license, a Gatlinburg license and a park license ...

Caught a few mahi along a weed line a few summers ago with an 8 wt. I needed a heavier rod though. Didn't know I was going offshore so I didn't have a sinking line, heavier rod or bigger flies with me. I caught the fish on size 2 Clousers. Without a sinking line, I couldn't get the fly down to t...

| Outdoor Board|| re: marlin 60 vs ruger 10/22 - TigerTaco on 2/21/14 at 10:55 pm|
I have both. If you are comparing stock rifles, I give the edge to the Ruger due to mags vs. tube feed. Personal preference. If you consider a bolt rifle, a CZ is better than both, build and accuracy wise. ...

I've made dozens. Just don't do it to save money because you won't unless you build lots of rods. 10-15 years ago, you could save a good bit of money, especially on fly rods. The only ones I have made recently are rods with actions, lengths, components, etc. I couldn't find on the shelf. ...
