re: William shatner vs millenial regarding housing costs - Unobtanium
[quote]Why not wait a year, save and put down more money and take a smaller or shorter loan?[/quote] Can't speak for everyone, this was my experience. Bought my first house in 1982 with a loan at the aforementioned 13.5% interest (gov't. subsidized program for first-time homeowners). IIRC the ex...

re: Backpack Sprayer Recommendations - Unobtanium
As of this post, Solo has the best ratio of positive/negative reviews, so I think I'll go in that direction. This is not for daily use, but I do spray an acre or so for weeds and two houses for bugs, so the direct pumping action and large reservoir are very appealing. Thanks for all the feedback....

I was looking at the bed hoist (has to bolted to truck frame) and a hitch-mounted hoist. Decided to go with the trailer so I could move with truck or tractor. Did not think about registration costs - assumed ultra small trailers were exempt, but will check to be sure. Thanks for pointing that out....

re: Generator issue - please help - Unobtanium
:hijack: rather than starting yet another generator thread - apologies to OP. Need to make my 7kW 'portable' generator a little more portable (too heavy to lift into truck bed).
