re: I have a question about buying an existing home VS building new - Chris4x4gill2
Buying a pre-existing older home is just about always cheaper than building new. But if you are talking about buying a "new" house that the builder has just finished, the cost is going to be comparable to building from scratch in the same neighborhood....

Related note, I had a call last night about a job In Quality out there. Not sure its worth being ostracized here on the OB for though :lol...

re: Walk-in hunting to flooded lake bottom - where do you put your gear? - Chris4x4gill2
What if you took a marsh seat and modified it to have a milk crate on top instead of the seat pad? Or use that concept to make something from scratch. Maybe a T-post with a platform welded to the top for a basket and hooks just under it to hang things from. Edit: or PVC would be lighter and easi...

re: out of gas on side of road, can not get tank to let me put gas - Chris4x4gill2
Find something to put in there that will hold the flap open. Coat hanger wire, stick, small piece of tubing..... Just don't drop it on where you cant get it back out. New gas cans suck, you pretty much have to have a syphon hose or a funnel to be able to put gas in a car with them....
