re: Covering a mobile generator - Jon A thon
If I'm running mine outside, for an extended period in bad weather, I plan to just use a pop up tent like at a tailgate. ...

re: Anyone here can't swim? - Jon A thon
[quote]ever did that for anything close to that for any of my IM's. I did some longer OWS sessions over 1.5 miles but never anything close in a pool[/quote] I trained with a coach and a "team". There were group brick workouts. The workouts were never "swim 2.4 miles", but sometimes it was swim ...

re: Anyone here can't swim? - Jon A thon
Yeah, when I did an IM, the one or two training sessions where I swam the 2.4 straight in the pool sucked bad. Swam it twice in open water and honestly was surprised when it was done. It's just mentally so much easier. ...

[quote]hat doesn't make sense, how many salesmen generate the "10's of millions a year?" $250 for a dinner if the guy just closed a deal for several mil is just a nice attaboy[/quote] I work in the oilfield. The numbers are just inflated due to the nature of our work. Every single job we do can...

[quote]You think I am bitching about this if he is with a client? No. He's eating alone or with some random he picked up.[/quote] I'd get one warning for a solo meal that large, then I'd be on my way out the door. With clients, no problems. It's not fair to compare revenue between various indus...

re: Bathing habits by "Bustle" - Jon A thon
I shower once or twice a day. I usually get sweaty or dirty in the garage every afternoon. We do only make the kids (7 and 1) bathe every other day unless they get really sweaty/dirty. Started with the older as he'd have dry skin issues as a toddler if you bathed him every day....

re: Anyone have a 30-35 gallon gas caddy? - Jon A thon
I have a 14 or 15 gallon caddy with a hand pump/siphon hose. I can get it in and out of the truck myself. Much larger and it'd be awkward. The hand pump just looks like a gas pump handle. If you have the tank higher than where you a pouring, it'll create a siphon after a few pumps. It's rig...

re: Anyone here can't swim? - Jon A thon
My wife [i]can[/i] swim, but she's not a swimmer. Like she won't die and no one will feel the need to save her in the deep end of a pool. But she's at most swimming to the sides and back to the shallow end. Her dad flat out can't swim, and I guess she just never had anyone as an example or put he...

re: Anyone's grass struggling from the recent heat/lack of rain? - Jon A thon
I have to water every other day. Planted some sod this spring in an area that died due to sod web worms and it started to take, but is now taking a beating. Even watering every other day, the grass starts to look burnt by the end of the second day. I've got a ton of shade too. I'm North of Houst...

re: Amazon charges you to pickup an item they incorrectly sent? - Jon A thon
I get the point you are making. But what would happen if you bought something from a brick a mortar store, opened the box, and the wrong item was in there. It's not like the store would drive out to your home to replace the item with the correct one even if it was wrong through no fault of your ow...

re: What is going to happen to IVF treatment? - Jon A thon
[quote], let’s talk about prohibitively expensive. There are some programs that subsidize some of the adoption expense, such as Catholic Charities, but there are long wait lists and it’s tough to get qualified. Otherwise, the lawyers have made it way more expensive than IVF. [/quote] Yep. We look...

re: DIY garage workshops. Let's see them. - Jon A thon
When my truck didn't fit in the new house's garage, I eventually went all out and took over the bay. Dust collector, mitersaw cart, and drill press are out of the frame. This is actually an older picture. I've fit a 17" bandsaw and an 8" jointer in there as well. Just roll them into the other bay ...

re: Karen yells at man in the gym for deadlifting 465 lbs loudly - Jon A thon
I'm impressed by the double overhand grip with no straps more than the deadlift itself. Guy deserved to drop that :lol:. I don't understand why people are so against dropping weights. Yeah, don't drop cast iron plates from any type of height. But most weights are made to take a little drop. ...
