re: A world outside of 225 - BLM
Get out bud and experience life. Don't want to be on your deathbed wishing you had done and seen more. I love my family back in LA as much as anyone and miss them all the time but it doesn't outweigh my desire to experience new things in new places. I actually moved back home to LA in 2013 to have ...

re: Running and Strength Training - BLM
I get my cardio (sometimes running distance) in the morning around 5:45am and then lift in the afternoon around 4:45pm during the week. I'm really more focused on dropping body fat at the moment than I am getting stronger. On the weekend I try to get one day of long distance (only 3-4 miles at the...

re: Places to hang out in Pineville, Louisiana - BLM
So funny to hear PHS is the best high school. Guess that's evolved over the yrs. Would not have described that way back in the mid 90's when I was there. ...

re: Places to hang out in Pineville, Louisiana - BLM
No idea. Been gone except holidays since early 2000's. All my buddy's I grew up with that are still there have families and jobs/careers. They all do the 'hang out with friends at the house/camp/lake/river' routine. ...

re: Places to hang out in Pineville, Louisiana - BLM
Go to Cajun catfish...was my favorite spot growing up. If you like fried catfish. As others have stated you'll have to go to elick for bars. Too bad the bad you can't still hit drinking with Lincoln at the Cotton Gin any more. That would be the spot......

re: Houston has destroyed New Orleans Port traffic - BLM
Glad I moved back to Atlanta and opened an office in Savannah in April to take advantage of all the tilt warehouse projects that are happening. LA just ain't got it and unfortunately never will. ...

re: Need input in designing duck boat.. - BLM
I had a CC gator tail that was pretty nice. Definitely would get catwalks again. Mine were 10" at the widest point. They're great for sitting while landing fish/reaching out of the boat, standing on when needed, using for shell box shelf/coffee cup shelf while blind is up and for the blind to rest o...

re: What keeps you in Baton Rouge? - BLM
We moved to ATL after college but always talked about moving back. We pulled the trigger in '13 and moved back to BR. Was awesome being back close to family...especially with 3 kids under the age of 5. Moved back to north ATL suburbs last yr, so we only lasted 3 yrs. Overall quality of life is jus...

re: Anyone using the new Toyo Open Country R/T tires? - BLM
Put a set on my F150 last October. Love them so far. Very quiet and got me thru a couple mud holes a few weeks ago. I personally like the look better that the BFG's. ...

Pit Blind Fabricator - BLM
Anybody have a recommendation for a pit fabricator. I have a buddy about to get one from Quirks but I'm wondering if there may be one up in NELA that's closer to where I need it. ...

re: Buying used side by side - BLM
Rode in my buddy's Pioneer 700-4 this past weekend at the camp. Was also very impressed with layout and the rear seating/bed functionality. I don't know a ton about them (trans problems) but I'm going to seriously consider one in a few yrs when I pull the trigger....

re: Self employment tax, best structure to have in place to eliminate?? - BLM
Same here. LLC taxed as s-corp. We've bumped salaries down to reasonable level and take distributions. Not sure your business, but the lowered payroll burden also saves us some money on G/L and WC insurance (construction biz). This wasn't something I considered when we first set everything up. ...

re: Small Business Loans - BLM
I'm in Atlanta and just started a new biz last yr. Upon opening our new biz account at local bank we immediately opened a LOC (based on personal credit scores) of $50k. They won't go over that until 2 yrs in business. We just started a 2nd related business and are doing the same $50k LOC for it. You...

re: Farm write off question: My house is on 30 acres - BLM
Does the landowner typically lease the property and do a profit share or is it generally one or the other? Sorry to hijack the thread...I'm very interested in buying some land over the next 5 yrs if I can find the right property/deals. Initial property will be more of a small farm with house to us...

re: Farm write off question: My house is on 30 acres - BLM
What part of the state are you in and what is ag land trading for on average? I've heard up in the NE portion of the state it can get up into the $3-$4k per acre range. Definitely higher than I was expecting. ...
