re: Colorado in late July with kids - slinger1317
I was very close to pulling the trigger on Co. Springs this year for our summer vacation. We have 2 kids 7 & 8 and there seems like a ton to do. Some of the things I had looked into: White Water Rafting - Canon City Garden of the Gods Pikes Peak Royal Gorge Train Various Hikes nearby...

re: Outdoor Kitchen setups - slinger1317
I built a house last year, with an outdoor kitchen I designed. It is U shaped with appliances on 2 sides and a raised bar on the 3rd side 12' ceilings with 2 fans (must for circulation on muggy days/nights) Ceilings were high enough I opted not to go with a vent hood over the grill Travertine ...

re: Anyone live on the lakefront in Mandeville? - slinger1317
I just checked that house out on Zillow, good location right off Girod and looks like it has been updated. But you're right, when you buy a house that old you will always be fighting some sort of repair. Some people love to do that, but it's not my cup of tea....

re: Anyone live on the lakefront in Mandeville? - slinger1317
I don't know that. I would imagine a new build would have to be up for a few blocks inland. I know some friends that bought on Girod near the Rusty Pelican and they are gutting the house but it is considered a remodel so they did not have to build up. I know this weekend the water was spraying ov...

re: Leaf blower suggestions - slinger1317
I recently bought a Milwaukee Blower and Weed Eater for my new house. My grandfather would roll over in his grave knowing I bought electric vs. gas, but I couldn't be happier with it. I am more than happy with it. [link=(https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-FUEL-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Brushless...

re: Anyone live on the lakefront in Mandeville? - slinger1317
I live in MV just north of 190. It's a great place to live. Old Mandeville has plenty to do, and its a great place to walk/bike. Spring and summer weekends are awesome out at the lake, plenty of greenspace to chill and let the kids run around. Houses in old MV are interesting, Girod is the main ...

Handy-man around BR/Denham Springs - slinger1317
I have several rental properties and my longtime handy man is hanging it up. He doesn't have any recommendations for anyone that he really knows. I'm looking for someone that is reputable and can do small jobs from time to time. Any info is appreciated!...

re: Sonoma Winery Tips - slinger1317

re: Sonoma Winery Tips - slinger1317
I visited Wine Country last month with the wife. We visited Del Dotto in St. Helena, and did the cave tour and barrel tasting. It was an awesome experience. I have done other tours that weren't nearly as in depth as this one. We then stopped for lunch at Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, and spent the r...

If I am paying the money for the fence, I want to look at the "pretty" side. My neighbor didn't have to pay anything for the fence between ...

re: Would anyone recommend a fiberglass pool over gunite pool if I don’t want a custom shape? - slinger1317
We built a pool over the winter this past year. In-ground gunite rectangle with an elevated spa spilling over into the pool. The cost was high but it was a solid construction job, I was able to supervise the job and was happy with it. Our kids are young and we plan on getting plenty of use out of i...

re: Ryan Theriot explains strike outs, hitting philosophy - slinger1317
One of our main problems, and it has been for years under Maineri, is that all of our players are 5'-9" 165. Watch us in any series against and SEC opponent and we are madly undersized. I don't understand why we can't go out and recruit a couple of mashers to offset all of our midget clones....
