Very cool. Wished I was neat and orderly like that. Good job! After a failed taste from my wife after trying one puff and me coughing up a lung after smoking a few..I have offically gave up trying ot make coffee flavored home rolled cigarettes yet again. My voice still sounds funny from all the hacking. Fortunately all variants of Marlboros and Mentholated variants is covered. Still looking for a big boy Camel clone tobacco but aint found it yet. Needs to be heavy on Turkish. Plan to use em for barter when the democrats crash the economy. Also working on trying to learn to roll Cowboy Cheroots as Clint Eastwood prefers.

Polished up a bunch of Martial Arts, Archery, and Art awards from when I was a kid. Zero material/monetary value, but was back before the day of participation awards. Honestly, 90% of them are 2nd and 3rd place, a humble reminder there is always someone better than you out there. That said they will go back into the keepsake box out of sight along with all the other achievement-based things in life.

Came out shiney though...

Ordered some organic 100 proof vodka from Bluewater Distilleries for the extracts I am going to make. Much of what I read said "at least 80 proof" so I did that. I got the organic beans, now I just need to find a source for organic almonds.

As the project requires the use of alcohol are we sure we aint making a tincture as opposed to an extract? I make quite a few of those using menthol crystals and 151 Rum to make Menthol cigarettes. Works much quicker than vodka..and dont add as much moisture to the goods...cheaper than everclear and tastes pretty good with home made super healthly ho made ginger ale if there is any left.

well - I guess maybe I don't know, now you have me concerned, isn't tincture more of a medicine than something used for cooking? I am not real familiar with the term. In cooking I thought the use of extracts were in such small quantities that the alcohol content wasn't really an issue. Everything I seemed to find said "use at least 80 proof". What I found went from 80 to 100 and the wife wanted organic, so I went with this.

I refilled 4 gas cans and topped off our truck, News was saying due to Russia California gas prices are going up. Yep, anyone sneezes is an excuse to raise the price.
Unleaded is now $4.15 at a local Flying J, I should add that the Chevron station 300 yards down the road is $5.00 for regular.

Upgraded the dashcam in my daily driver today.

Automotive lighting Automotive mirror Mirror Azure Sky


Went from an old-school 1080p that had to be reprogrammed every time I turned it on just to set the date & clock (I just gave up on that and every time it started it recorded the date was Jan 2, 2000). The only way to preserve the date/time setting was to leave it powered up and that drains the battery overnight. It was from back when 1080p was just coming out, knocking 720p off the throne.

4k now rules, and that's what this one does. Also records GPS coordinates and speed right on the video file. Since I got the version with GPS, I never have to worry about setting the date and time... it's automatic. All I need to set my time zone.

Accepts 256g micro SD card. That should give me about 3½ hours of recording based on my old rig using a 32g card. Time will tell. {Update: 256g garners me 13½ hours} It has a shock sensor, so if it's triggered it automatically locks the current file out so it can't be overwritten.

I intentionally tucked it up behind the mirror to reduce the obstruction of my view, Yet it's still where the passenger wiper blade will keep it cleared.

It can also do an ad-hoc wifi to any my devices, but viewing a 4k video creates lots of lagging issues. I'll just pull the card and use a reader directly into whatever device I want to view it with.


If you don't have a dashcam........ GET ONE! FOR EVERY VEHICLE YOU DRIVE!!!

What kinda dessicants? This stuff should work great to fill up the cotton tubes. Should be infinitely reuseable.

March being the month where I do my annual checkups on my GHBs and BOB, I started with all my electronics. All tablets and my phone get synched with all necessary files. BOB tablet is turned on, update all apps and files and charged. I haven't turned it on since March 2021, and it was still at 77%. Battery banks are charging. Flashlight batteries are charging.

Gun show score: 6 boxes of Hornady .308... the preferred diet for my scout rifle.

Haven't seen any for over 2 years now, and it was $28 back then. So $30 today is a steal.
