Help me plan my honeymoon! - DownSouthDave on 3/16/20 at 8:19 am
I'm getting married at the beginning of March, next year. We want to do about 2 weeks in Thailand. With all of the travel discounts going around, I would like to go ahead and start booking to save some money. I don't really know much about Thailand, I don't have a list of things I would like ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Blue Angels at Pensacola Beach - DownSouthDave on 3/13/20 at 12:32 pm
Parking and traffic can be a nightmare. If possible, leave a vehicle at casino beach the night before and take a taxi early in the morning. If you park at the end, around chicken bone beach, you're looking at a 3+ hour drive to get off the island. I've never watched it from the Gulf, but the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Tax Refund From USVI - Recommendations - DownSouthDave on 3/11/20 at 4:04 pm
Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. I'm working for an engineering firm, based in the US. They did have to set up a carribean entity to work down here, which I had to switch to before coming down. I live in corporate leased housing, I don't have any bills here. Vehicle is a corporate l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Tax Refund From USVI - Recommendations - DownSouthDave on 3/11/20 at 2:43 pm
I've been working in St. Croix since 2018. My 2018 returns were easy, I got my refund from the feds. I don't have my returns in front of me, but I think they qualified my time here in 2018 as a visit or similar. I wasn't owed any money from the USVI government. I ended up staying here all th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Tractor and implement suggestions... - DownSouthDave on 2/16/20 at 4:11 am
I think I agree with you and some of the other posts here. I don't mind spending time running a cutter, but the less time the better. I don't know if a batwing would be a good choice for me because of future plans for grapes and fruit trees, but 8' sounds a lot better than 6'. I haven't been abl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Tractor and implement suggestions... - DownSouthDave on 2/15/20 at 3:47 pm
Looks like I'll be in the same situation, almost exactly, as you are. I never considered a batwing, I just thought it would be too small to pull it. You don't have any trouble running it from your 5800? I'm a little surprised at the people suggesting smaller, I figured tractors were like saf...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Tractor and implement suggestions... - DownSouthDave on 2/15/20 at 7:31 am
I'd rather have a little extra than a little less. I believe the only Kubota models that are smaller, that have cabs, are the Grand L series. The regular L series does not. The Grand L series tractors are much more expensive because of all the additional features. They seem nice, but think I wo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Tractor and implement suggestions... - DownSouthDave on 2/15/20 at 6:44 am
I am going to need a tractor to take care of a little over 20 acres. It was formerly a horse farm, so it's pretty much all pasture with fencing and cross fencing. I'm new to the tractor world, but I was thinking about something in the 50-60 engine hp class. It'll mostly be used on the property,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (15)
re: Best way to protect new treated pine fence? - DownSouthDave on 2/3/20 at 3:19 pm
Sorry, I'm not home, I can't post pics. But I did it probably 5 or 6 years ago and it still looks really good. I'm sure you can find some info on the net. Like someone else said, people used to use burnt oil. Cutting it with diesel just makes it thin so you can spray it. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Best way to protect new treated pine fence? - DownSouthDave on 2/2/20 at 2:24 pm
I use a mix my neighbor suggested, works great. 5 gallons of diesel 2 gallons of burnt motor oil Mix in oil based color as desired, I think we used 2 pints of brown and 1 of red per batch. Filter oil and put mix in a roundup sprayer, goes on easy and does an excellent job. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Who has the best land loan options? - DownSouthDave on 1/3/20 at 6:39 am
My fiancee and I both own homes in neighborhoods, but we are looking for something bigger. I've found a property that I think would be just right for us, a little over 20 acres. I listed my home a week ago, data says homes in my neighborhood are usually under contract within a few weeks. Onc...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Anyone here make their own wine? - DownSouthDave on 12/30/19 at 4:45 am
[quote]Never made any, but I once reached the desperation point to drink a bottle of my grandfathers muscadine wine. I’ve never had prison wine, but I hardly see how it could be worse.[/quote] That's just bad wine. I've been to a Muscadine winery where they had every thing from dark rich reds...

re: Anyone here make their own wine? - DownSouthDave on 12/27/19 at 5:35 pm
I have a couple of Carlos Muscadine vines. I've made wine the past two years. First batch was good. Second batch was great. It's a fun thing to do, and drinking my own wine, from my own grapes, is rewarding. Kits are cheap and it's easy to do. Just keep everything sanitary. ...

Yeah, we head there quite a bit. Usually after jeeping down to the tide pools we will stop on the way back, they have killer banana daquiris. Tonight was the boat parade and fireworks. Great display. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
