  • Mine was a Camp Chef Smoke Vault. It's a propane smoker.

    https://www.campchef.com/smoke-vault-24.html

    Easy to set up as I put mine on wheels. Wheel it out of the garage, hook up the propane and ready to smoke in 10 minutes. Really easy to clean and if you use foil lined pans even easier. And it produces great BBQ.

    Our cabin's on Lake St. Clair in Lacey.

    So yes, we leave it on the lake all summer, and then we're gonna store it under the carport for the winter. You can leave your boat in all winter, but I'm too OCD to do that, cause they can get mildew if they're not covered, so we'll park it dry.

    Of course. But I don't know how to post them. I keep asking, and getting no answers.

    When you post, scroll down past the submit button and you will see a section that looks like the attachment below. Select "Choose File" and locate the image on your computer. Double-click the photo and then select "Add the file". The page will refresh and you SHOULD see the name of the file under the File comment field in green font. If you don't the file size may be too large and you will have to reduce the size.

    Hope that helps!

  • I bought a king bed for the wife and I and it’s glorious. We’re not big people anyway (both 5’7”) so we might as well be in separate beds, zip codes even. We got an awesome deal on a latex mattress and I’ve never slept better.

    Is that a remote control jet? What kind if propulsion does it use. When I was a kid my friends dad like to fly remote control gliders. They were launched with a really long piece of surgical tubing. Can't remember how long, but as a kid it seemed it stretched the length of a football field. Was pretty cool.

    That is one sweet looking dog and it's pretty clear that he loves you. I'd crop out the ugly dog in that last photo, it's not a flattering shot. :irishdrinkers:

    He really does love me! And, for me that's actually a flattering shot... :mrgreen: The wifey tells me that since I've been TDY in San Diego for the last month he mopes around everywhere, and has started filling out in his chest muscles. Good lord, my poor lap when I get home!

    That's the plan when we retire............just need to get rid of these pesky kids who keep wanting to be fed, housed and educated.

    Aren't they old enough to fend for themselves yet?

    On a more serious note, I've always wanted to get a boat. However, I know exactly how much of a money pit they are, so no.

  • Always thought the best thing to do as far as Boats was to know someone that was a avid Fishing Enthusiast or enjoyed sailing etc and over to help them launch or bring it in for the season initially, pretty much gives you a in to going out regular without the headaches of Mooring and licensing and maintenance. :P

    Believe me, we held off for two summers with no boat. But it's a pain in the ass to depend on friends and family to use theirs, so we got our own.

    And I told my wife we were never getting another one until we had our own place so I could just drop it in and leave it for the summer. The most stressful part of owning a boat for me was the trailering, launching and pulling it out all the time.

    So far so good, no regrets. I do like being in control of where we go, who gets to ride and what music we're listening to.

  • I had one too many, and live within walking distance to a Guitar Center, came home with a Strat last weekend. Cried for a couple of hours about the money gone, then the only time I have put it down was during the game last night. FREAKING IN LOVE...
