    Iso stihl chainsaw

    I looked at the ad you linked and I read MS261 not 361 on the saw.

    Iso stihl chainsaw

    I have one in my shed that has had very little use. I had it tuned up at AtoZ and haven't started it for the last 3 years cause I haven't had a dang elk tag since then. I know it has a 20" bar and a new chain on it.

    There will always be Cameras on water!

    You know if they are banned that people will carry a hammer and smash the crap out of the birdwatcher's cameras.

    Who hear is a leader/boss?

    I managed 100 people at 30 years old and 156 when I left the corporate life at 52. I now own a small biz. If the first guy gets to work at 6AM i have always been there at 5. Let them know they are more important than you are. They are. Mine know they will get paid even if I don't. You will always have an butt kisser that bugs the heck out of you. Treat him like your dog and rub his head every day. You will also have a lazy sack of shoot too so figure it out and get him to resign. He will poison the well. Your people will know if you are a stand up man and will walk through a wall to take care of them. They will also take care of you. You will do fine. I have also taken many fishing trips to Alaska and Mexico and included some of my key managers. Some are now my best friends. At 71 I have seen it all but there are some real freaks coming up so never know. Good luck.

    Building a shed

    I moved into a house where the owner had put a base frame of 2x4 and two sides of 2x4 along a tall block wall. I framed front and back including a door, put a roof on it and decked it all with plywood and sheet siding. I have half of the shingles done and it was easy work and cost me around $600. Maybe 8' x 10'. It is easy basic framing work and he had the floor joists built on a gravel base. I did it with no help so if you can get a couple of friends to help should be a quick job. I am 71 so no volunteering from me. I am lucky to still be able to do my own.

    Outdoor Writer - Best Wishes with Medical

    Hang in there old man. We found out a month ago that my wife of 52 years has pancreatic cancer so going through similar situation. At 71 I know so many people with cancer and other serious issues it is shocking. Getting old ain't for sissies. Hope they figure out your issues and fix you up.

    Tundra oil change.

    Yes. They just called and are sending a letter on Toyota letterhead that if anything happens to the engine they will guarantee it. Will be signed by the tech and the service manager.

    Lot lizzard was a disappointment. Was a 250 pound man.

    Tundra oil change.

    Well, they have been the only people to ever change my oil and every 5000 miles with synthetic. I just checked and it is full of oil so they didn't leave the drain plug out. It is probably fine.

    Tundra oil change.

    He added all the oil. There wasn't a drop on the dipstick when he looked at it.

    Tundra oil change.

    I guess I'm a little paranoid looking at the oil gauge. I will see what they send me in writing tomorrow.

    Tundra oil change.

    No lights at all. They said they would send me something in writing. I noticed the oil guage moves up and down a bit now and it never did that before.

    Tundra oil change.

    Got my oil changed in my Tundra today at Right Toyota. I have a 100k Toyota warranty so always have them do it. 72000 miles. I drive back 15 minutes to my shop and hear a slight whirring sound. Get in it to go home and look at the oil guage and it is on zero. Check the oil and not one drop of oil. They say they will stand behind it if anything goes wrong. Had a lot lizard drive over and fill it with oil. How would you handle that. I wonder how much internal damage could have happened running it 3-4 miles dry.

    Knife Recommendations

    I have 3 buck folders that are 40 years old. I carry a diamond steel and they are sharp enough to cut through hide with only a few strokes on the steel. Light and sharp and all I will ever need.
