I sold a BLR .308 to a buddy yesterday. He wanted it because his dad had one when he was a little kid, it was the first center fire he ever shot. His dad got it from his father, brand new, at 13 years old, in 1971, in Saskatchewan. His dad sold the rifle in 1995, after owning it for 24 years. Yesterday, he got it back. Checked against the serial number his dad had engraved in his safe...same rifle, 24 years later. To say they're both pretty happy is putting it lightly.

What are alternatives that you guys use to start the coal?
What type of coal thing are you trying to get going?

I have a coal stove at home, I used to build up a fire in it and slowly add coal to get it running...now I just drop a bag of that ready-to-go charcoal in there, light the bag on fire, wait a half hour or so, and start piling coal on top of it. For as much as I use it, that sure beats trying to build an actual fire in there.

I don't particularly like the latest batch of coal that I got, it lights off easily but doesn't last worth shit. Last batch I got was a bitch to get going but once it was there, I got 36 hours out of my stove once and it's a 1-2 bucket capacity. This stuff burns hot, but quick. Same vendor too. If you need any in the short term I've got a bit over a ton in my basement in central NJ that I wouldn't mind replacing with some stuff like I had last season...not gonna be doing anything with it for the next 6 months at least.

Built the skeleton that will become a 12x24 run in shed with a 16x30 roof. Never built anything like this. Only ever worked in a shop, with clean metal, and more specific measurements, etc. Actually had to dust off the ol' stick welding skills. We got that all built yesterday and this morning

My parents had a bunch of old 2" thick, rough cut boards down from old growth pine we fell back when I was in highschool. Been stacked and stickered for 18 years. We went out there this afternoon and loaded a car hauler full. Should look really good stained. I bought some rust neutralizer and plan to paint the pipe a dark sage green. After I get a few more shelters built I plan to ditch the t-post fences and build pipe fencing. It's gonna be a long hot summer.

We don't really get snow. We get ice, one inch at a time.

It is getting metal roof and wooden walls.

There's still a bunch of pipe that hasn't gone into it yet. This is just the basic skeleton. I still have a long way to go.

There was a thread recently about somebody looking for a certain type of SUV and the plate number I think. Did that ever get figured out? And was it the Houston area?

Action fat, you really need to turn those roof pieces into trusses. Even if it doesn't snow in Arkansas it still rains a whole bunch and a completely flat roof will hold water. It's really easy to do all you have to do is put in a small vertical section in the center of each one then run pipe out to your ends. Even if it's a shallow ditch it will still get rid of the water.


P. S. I'm using Google Voice to Text so I have no freaking clue how all of this is going to come out while driving down the road

Is picking up and storing vehicles becoming some kind of side business for you

Siting at home. Came home from work yesterday not feeling well with a gas pain in my chest that just wouldn't go away. Started feeling a little better last night, then woke up with a raging headache and body ache today so called out. Took a couple brief naps and did some chores around the house. Finally feeling human again.

Thanks man. Keep your eye out for something. Running, not running doesnt matter if it can be fixed. 92-96 is preferred, but I'll look at earlier stuff too.

Still have my #?

A chimney starter for my coal grill.

I also got a few bags of shitty coal. It burns fast and turns to ash rather quickly which makes an ash storm when I pour it.

The bags prior were also meh. Burned ok but damn it was like a 4th of July fireworks show.
