    Re: Need advice on how to clear 4 acres

    That really just looks like it is scrub brush and small stuff, and not really that much of it. If it was me, I would just by a brush cutter and a chipper. You could probably do an acre a weekend and...

    Re: Strange things found in the forest

    You have to be careful of spending time on the riverbanks and estuaries downstream of old gold mines. What looks like beach rock today, could be mining tailings from long ago. There was a lot of...

    Re: Strange things found in the forest

    Sounds like someone baited the area for a while and then just shot them over a period of a few days. Possibly at night with a light. Target practice maybe? People have been known to do stupid...

    Re: ideas for pulling tarp edge

    Maybe this is too McGyver for what you are looking for, but when I have to secure a tarp for camping or to cover wood or machinery etc, I never use the grommets because they tear too easily. I wrap...

    Re: Neighbors and favors.

    The last issue I had with a "borrower" was when my buddy needed to haul something with a gooseneck trailer and his truck doesn't have rails so he needed to borrow my truck. He was supposed to come by...
  94. Re: MSRP schock on Ford F150 prices model year 2015 and newer

    I was going to say the same thing, but you beat me to it. :)

    Re: Why I hate ST trailer tires

    ST tires should not be used at highway speeds. They are rated for 55 or 65 MPH top speed depending on the brand/model. When they go too fast the friction from the stiffer sidewalls cause them to...
  96. Re: MSRP schock on Ford F150 prices model year 2015 and newer

    Sorry to get off topic from the OP's truck, but a diesel pickup that doesn't do better than that has something wrong with it. I have a 2011 6.7l diesel F-250 crew cab 4x4 with 138K kms on it (about...
