re: Port Fourchon Marina - HES
How early is early? I’ll be heading out there tomorrow too for the first time (from the marina). I usually stay at a camp nearby with a private launch. I was thinking of launching at 5:30ish to beat any charters. Also with the private launch, I see you have to go under 3090. Is it a low bridg...

Sawdust for fill? - HES
Just grinded down a large stump and have tons of sawdust to deal with now. I’ve read it’s great for making compost, but it’s way more than I’d need for that. I have some low spots on the property with none of the depths greater than 6-8 inches. My thought was spreading it across some of the low s...

re: Boat insurance cost - HES
Good thread, I have a 26’ Hydra Sports CC with twin Yamaha 150’s. Bought last year for $32k. Probably dumb of me, but I didn’t shop insurance. Just called Allstate (who has our auto) and am paying about $1000/yr. seems high looking at the prices above. Are saltwater boats that much higher than ...

re: Deadwood, South Dakota - HES
Went a few years ago with the wife. Had a great time walking around what I can only assume is called the strip. It’s definitely dated, but I think that’s what makes it cool. Food ehh, casinos ehh, but people and outside scenery are great. Mt. Rushmore was cool, but was over it in about 20-30 m...

re: What to do with stumps on property? - HES
I have a couple metal trash cans I cut the bottoms out of. I place them over stumps on my property and add a bag or two (depending on stump size) of match-light charcoal and burn. Take around the stumps first to remove dead leaves and watch often for the first few hours to stomp out any live grass...

re: Must Eat Places in Chicago for long weekend - HES
Just got back last night from a weekend getaway with the wife. We took recommendations from here and also some friends who live there. Lunch at Portillo’s - Chicago dogs and Italian beef sandwich. The hotdogs were just ok to us, but probably because we’re not big hotdogs fans anyway.... just ...

re: Singapore - HES
Can’t agree with the stingray recommendation more. If on the company dime, get the black pepper crab as well as the chili crab. Little India has some good places if you like Indian food. Walk through some of the fish markets just for fun. Really intersting things to see....

re: What’s the coldest weather you’ve been in? - HES
-60ish wind chill, I think about -40 actual. Minot, ND in 2013. I’m heading there Monday for a few days, but I think the low next week should “only” be about -15 (high all week will be about 3 last I looked)....

re: Looking to the OB for advice (hobby related) - HES
Not looking to deal with the hassle of trying to sell it, would gladly give it away. I just have a feeling I’ll end up trashing or burning like others have said. Building a partybarge might be a little more of a hobby that I’m willing to take on....

Looking to the OB for advice (hobby related) - HES
I recently purchased a 30 acre property in St. Tammany Parish. With the overgrowth thinned, I decided to take a stroll through some of the wooded areas for the first time. I found large piles of cut pilings (not creosote), but they are all cut into anywhere from 1’ to 5’ pieces. Probably 100+ pie...

re: Need help from fellow Food Network watchers - HES
Although that dish looks awesome, that’s not it. That’s in San Francisco too (not NY) and this definitely wasn’t in California. The thing I remember about the video the most was the large split bone they placed (marrow side up) over the top of the other meat. I’m thinking it might be RPM in C...

Need help from fellow Food Network watchers - HES
Channel pretty much stays on in our house. Saw an episode a while back, I think “best thing I ever ate”, but not positive. Was a restaurant in Chicago (again, I think) and it was a steakhouse with their specialty dish being lots of different cuts of meat topped with a large marrow stuffed bone cut...
