re: Best way to get Plant Jobs? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
[quote]A good segment of young professionals today(25 yr old+) aren't lazy, they work smarter and recognize needless labor. [/quote] I'm not saying there aren't any. If you happen to be in an area with a few good ones, they can have a positive effect on others and the overall attitude is good. A...

re: Best way to get Plant Jobs? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
(TLDR) (Holy wall of text, Batman) 25 years in a plant. 43 yrs old. Take it FWIW A common misconception about plant jobs is that anyone can do it walking through the gate, and everyone on the street qualifies. When the plants were just getting off the ground in the 60's and 70's, and huge nu...

re: Recently bought our first travel trailer - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I highly recommend astro rv in Lake Charles. I replaced three custom sized mattresses, including one angle cut, with solid foam, pillow top mattresses for $500 total. Super nice people. They give two week lead, but I got all three of mine in one week. I took good measurements and they fit like the...

re: Best wireless trail cameras - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I don't have any, but since you don't have any first hand responses, I do know others who do. I'm told that Moultrie works well, and you go online to set up service with verizon, regardless of who you have mobile service with. It's an independent plan tailored for trail cameras and is somewhere in t...

re: OT mechanics, DIY'ers. Ever diagnose a freon leak in your vehicle? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Look at my pic above. It should be in a similar area near the low side port. But I'd put soapy water on it and see if it bubbles first. ETA- sorry, that was on a chevy and I assumed. This is on my 2010 Tundra. It's on the high side in this case, and a lot lower in the system. So the reason I di...

re: OT mechanics, DIY'ers. Ever diagnose a freon leak in your vehicle? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I also found a leaking pressure/cycling switch on the accumulator. It was black plastic with an aluminum band crimped around it. I had put a whole can of 5-shots of UV dye. Got no UV dye out of it, presumably because it's the highest point in the system. Soapy water found it though [img]https://i...

re: Ladder Stand Support Bar - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Is the problem an existing bar broke? If so, I had one rust and break where the two telescoping ends overlap. I bought a 4' piece of 3/4" cadmium plated all-thread at Lowes. I used that because it is extremely stiff/strong and does not flex. I spanned it across the two ends, on the underside and fas...

re: I found this knife in the woods... - Tiger-Striped-Bass
This is the knife I referred to earlier. Obviously it's the gut hook model, but otherwise looks similar enough to possibly be the same series [img]https://i.imgur.com/BM0Y3g0.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/9egUGIo.jpg[/img] ...

re: I found this knife in the woods... - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Good find. Looks a lot like a Winchester brand knife I have. It wasn't very expensive, and wouldn't surprise me to be the type NWTF might mass stamp. The one I have is a good knife. ...

re: Complete Backyard Makeover - Zoysia or St. Augustine - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I bag the emerald, without exception. Only sometimes do I bag the zenith, and it isn't near as bad. Emerald zoysia grows incredibly dense and it takes a really long time for any dead parts of the plant to decay. For reference, I don't tend the compost pile to help speed it along. I just spread it ou...

re: Complete Backyard Makeover - Zoysia or St. Augustine - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I planted 30 pallets of emerald zoysia around my house, and planted about the same area across my driveway with zenith zoysia from seed, both 12 years ago. When it's right and perfect, there isn't a prettier warm season grass than emerald zoysia. If anyone says differently, they have never seen it i...

re: SECt Baseball Finals: Arkansas 2 vs LSU 4 | SEC CHAMPIONS - Tiger-Striped-Bass
It's like today is the exception. But for all the good Newman has done in the past, today has been typical as of late. And as for his ERA, it is deceptive in that the majority of it was pre-sec and it is a fact that he missed a lot of sec games due to injury. Upon return, today's Newman is today...

re: SECt Baseball Finals: Arkansas 2 vs LSU 4 | SEC CHAMPIONS - Tiger-Striped-Bass
No one is trashing Newman. But let's say this was for cws championship, you Newman aplologizers still want to take Hess out after a handful of pitches when he's on, and roll the dice with Newman? Guy has not been the same after returning from injury. Don't like pulling a fresh Hess who is having...
