    Few good heavy duty chains in the bucket and 2 craftsman tool bags huge assortment some good brand name stuff and quality vintage stuff.
    My neighbors Dad past a few years ago and he came over to ask me if I wanted to look at some tools

    Most of this stuff was in boxes didn't even get to look and he said $100 I told him that was to low and gave him $150 and if I sell off something I don't want or need that I would give him the money cause I didn't want to profit from it.

    Did 55 gallons of JD come with the deal?

    Why do you need to percolate 12 law enforcement officers when camping?

    Then again....... how does one even percolate a human being?

    Prepared One, trust me, I understand the angst. However, you cannot defeat anger by simply creating "different anger."

    Here's what works for me. When some idiot has gotten under my skin, I find the dullest knife in my wife's kitchen drawer. You know, a real "tear down and rebuild." It's something that will need care and a slow attention to detail.

    I don't use The Edge Pro, I just take a fine grain stone, ink the edge, and slowly and calmly polish out the dings. Sure, my mind is racing but I must keep my hand calm and level. Slowly, my mind matches my hand in these careful and precise movements.

    Lots of guys have punching bags (where they envision their enemy's face) or they take their cars and run the pedal to the floor (I had a 'go fast' Mustang). Adrenaline will not curb adrenaline.

    It's cold here now so waxing a car is out, but polishing a knife works. This type of work also requires your mind affixed to a singular focus. You cannot hone a knife to a perfect edge with haphazard, unfocused movements.

    We used to refer to this mindset as "Illegitimus non-carborundrum est." In English that's "Don't let the bastards grind you down."

    When I started building the sleep and shelter systems (SASS) for my GHBs, I decided a low of 20°F would be a reasonable goal. While it does get colder than that here on occasion, I think it's unlikely I'll ever have to endure it when deploying my GHB. A while back I tested my SASS and it got down to 34°. Last night, I set it all up again for another test. I reached my goal of 20°..... it got down to 18°F.

    Attachment 103775

    I will call the temperature test of my SASS a complete success. Now to wait until the spring storms to test it for rain and wind worthiness.

    Do you not understand what's happened here over the last couple of weeks? Have you really no clue?
