+diane c Be sure to give your new pet a good brushing before dark.  You'd hate for it to go roaming around and its hair is a mess.

This is the ugliest kitty cat I have ever seen. A good brushing should fix it up.

Ha!!! I remember your grooming tips. Mine has the most lovely baby hair, so
if we go for a bit of a retro-punk look, the little guy should be very So
Cal indeed!.

+Lee Schnitzer We are running Fiber at our office and it has been awesome thus far.  I already have 1 TB of storage, so another can't hurt either.  I can't wait to see it here at home the next time I have to download an ISO or upload a big video to YouTube.

+Chris Swanda It's more an incubator ?.
My dad built a ~5 ft tall wooden incubator. The heating element is a oven heating unit with a fan that blows upward from the bottom. Heat and fan are at the bottom with water. I had 75 eggs at the top. My eggs after weeks of rolling and opening with a consistent temperture came out hollow with nothing inside. 1 had a black junk I assumed to be contamination coming from a hole. All of these were 1st eggs from year old chickens and guineas. I tentatively concluded a. My roosters suck b. I steamed eggs to dehydration c. The way the incubator is set up with eggs is totally wrong d. I'm a dumb ass. (Hahahah) So it is eggs...then fan heat water at the bottom. I think I have a phone pic I'll post so you can see. I wanted to do some ducks and quail but want to experiment on chickens first. The incubators we did have that were commercial he sold.

Story
Tagline
A technology creator and adopter, wilderness survivalist, and a polymath looking for more. I was lucky to be a Dude from Discovery Channel's Dude You're Screwed Season 2. Follow along as I have some cool projects in the works.
Introduction
Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully you will find something interesting here.  We tend to cover a lot of topics ranging from outdoors, technology, BBQ, fine pipe tobaccos, and random shenanigans.  Stick around and have a good time.  

He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all, but the Saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea.  - Thoreau's Walking.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - So sayeth Robert Heinlein's character Lazarus Long in Time Enough for Love


Bragging rights
I am lucky enough to have been given opportunities in life, and have seized everyone of them. I cannot say I have been successful in each one, but trying is the hardest part. Failure is the greatest teacher.
