re: Smoky Mountains Next Week - nctiger71
I think there are skiing/snow boarding slopes in the general area. My ex-boss used to go to that general area w/ his teenage son. They got a lot of snow in western NC yesterday, not sure about TN....

re: Collaboration to save the West's forests - nctiger71
I’ve had an interest in the forest products industry for quite a few years. I just googled USFS Harvest Trends and found many reports, etc. on the subject to find those charts. I knew the western public lands harvest had decreased significantly ~ 25 years ago. I don’t have info on lumber imp...

re: Collaboration to save the West's forests - nctiger71
One of the main reasons that so much of the USFS lands need attention is because they stopped harvesting in the early 1990s. They primarily stopped due to the spotted owl; being an endangered species. Harvesting is a management tool. Stop harvesting means more fuel for fires. [img][img]htt...

re: Vertigo - any OTC remedies - nctiger71
Thanks for the input. Went to the Immediate Care and paid $65 to be told pretty much the same things I learned on this board. I did get a prescription and an explanation of why vertigo develops....

re: Good books about the history of Communism - nctiger71
The Shadow of the Winter Palace. I have not read but a friend recommended it. Exactly 175 years ago, on the Senate Square in St. Petersburg, a failed uprising ignited a process that would, one red October, finally sweep the autocracy away. The Shadow of the Winter Palace recounts an extraordinar...

re: Concerning "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" - nctiger71
“ I watched them all tonight. I liked them all. Great story telling in the Coen way. Of course my wife said, “I don’t get the point of any of it.” “ _____________________________ That’s pretty much what my wife said. She watched the first 2 & gave up. ...

re: How would you handle this? - nctiger71
Well if your wife loves her then that is Game, Set and Match. Women have their own priorities and “rules” and all mothers know that the DIL controls visitation to MOM. And husbands are at the bottom of the pecking order below grandkids, your children, her parents and the family pets. Be tha...

re: Does DD&D bring you in to places to eat... - nctiger71
I googled The Gumbo Shack to try and watch that episode even though I had seen it. Found out it is permanently closed. I’ve encountered that before; DDD places permanently closed that is. Being on DDD doesn’t guarantee success....

re: Does DD&D bring you in to places to eat... - nctiger71
The Gumbo Shack in Fairhope was not good. (Had to look the name up.) Neither one of us liked it. By comparison, on that same road trip we ate at Chimes in BR & loved it....

re: Does DD&D bring you in to places to eat... - nctiger71
We look for a DDD place when traveling. One reason is to avoid the fast food chains and eat at a local place. We have eaten at about 16; about 4 of them were great, about 1/2 were ok, and the rest were disappointments. But most of them we have only eaten at once - hard to judge a place based on...

re: How much is Pine Timber worth? - nctiger71
Thanks Couple of other thoughts for the OP. You could potentially increase the $ generated per acres by waiting a few years; depending on the product mix on the tract. As the trees grow they move from the less valuable category, pulpwood, to a higher valued product. And, there are usually mo...

re: How much is Pine Timber worth? - nctiger71
That is an impossible question to answer for your specific tract based on what we know but here are some industry generalities. There are generally 3 pine products in the south: pulpwood - smallest usually, <= 8" diameter,lowest value, quality not much of an issue small logs - 8" to 12" diamete...

re: Alaskan Cruise options - nctiger71
RogerTheShrubber has posted about options to travel around Alaska that would definitely not be in the mass market cruise category. You might search and find that; it was posted within the past year. We did a 10 day land and sea cruise last year. It was our first cruise and first time in Alaska. ...

re: How do you post photos? - nctiger71
I use Imgur. The photos stay on the Imgur site but after a while only the link is visible on here. You have to click on the link to see the picture, whereas if it was posted correctly the picture, initially anyway, was visible. Hope that makes sense, it’s kinda convoluted. But I may not be doing...

re: Nashville suggestions - nctiger71
We ate at the mall next to the GOO too. Won’t make that mistake again if we return. But there are probably some good restaurants there we just didn’t pick one. LOL at your ‘meals’, sounds like some of our trips. ...
