Hmmm the spammers have found the harvest thread...Spagetto, you may not be breathing much longer... ;D

Oh the strawberry's are done for, now we're starting to pick the occasional banana pepper, or pull one of the mater plants that are volunteers in the compost pile, for a few fresh taters to slice and eat raw.

I have not purchased on before now, I think the biggest reason is that my friends who have one have theirs out of commission more than not because of the oil pump that needs cleaned after every use.  It is such a big job and it is just not worth it to freeze dry the food.


I was at my local farm store the other day and they have a NEW model that has an oil-free pump.  If that works as well as I hope, I may end up getting one.  It is a LOT more, but if it means I would actually use it, it would be worth it.

I read a few other threads and thought this was an interesting forum, but it was this thread that actually made me join!  I'm female (gasp), originally from a major city (wtf?), and Colombian/brown (run!).  LOL.

I'm a Euro/Asian mutt, yet half my friends are rednecks. No one cares what you look like if you have the same interests.

Outdoors Activities / Re: Educate me on Inflatable Mats

It's out of your price range, but I'm a big fan of the Exped DownMat Series (
I was a little thrown off at the price at first also, but after listening to experienced outdoors men I gave it a try.
Sleeping in the field has never been more comfortable to me after making the switch.
With the use of the Schnozzel Pumpbag it can be inflated in about two minutes.

Are the trees in the rocky area you camp suitable for hanging a hammock?
That will get you up off the ground and away from the lumps and bumps.

Firearms Legislation And News / Re: Why shoud I keep my NRA membership?
« Last post by Ken325 on Yesterday at 09:21:11 PM »
And the Washington Post is compleatly unbiased?   Our established media has been losing money left and right since the internet became a better source of news and a better place to advertize.  The failing media has been bought up by a handful of billionairs who don't care if they lose money.  They use the media to push their globalist, socialist agenda.  The Washington Post and Jeff Bezos are the perfect example of this.  They are not going to get to bring about a "new world order" unless they can disarm the American citizen. The NRA is the most effective orginization at stoping this.  I am also mad at some of the dumb things the NRA is doing, but the reason they get attacked by the left is they are effective.

If the NRA is gone then we will have gun confiscation. After this US soverenty is given to the UN in the name of stopping global warming or something stupid.  Redistribution of income from the developed world and the productive class to disfunctional socialist countries, and the lazy pot heads is next.  Control of the internet and the media means that anyone who protest this will be labeled a Nazi, racist, who uses hate speech by the controled media and tech billionaires.  People will have their careers ruined because they are opposed to having an intact, 6 foot tall, 200 pound biological male who is confused about his gender compete in sports with a 100 poound 15 year old girl.  And if you are opposed to him showering with your 15 year old daughter after the competition then you are destroyed by this same media.  If you want immigration laws enforced to prevent your community being overwhelmed by unskilled, uneducated, non- english speaking central americans, who are going to get the vote and then vote to give your money to the government, so it can be given back to them as welfare then you should oppose the NRA.  After the NRA is gone then if will be easy to do all this.  If you can flip Texas like they flipped California with massive immigration then the Republicians will never win anouther election. Then we get the green new deal, agenda 51, income redistribution, Christian persucution, and you won’t be able to do anything about it because you bought the Washington Post story about how the NRA is bad.  If you think I'm wrong then look at what is happening in Europe.

This is why you keep your NRA membership.  Fight to change the NRA if you want to fire current leadership and get them to focus on protecting your rights.  Get rid of the NRA and we are hosed.  When we lose the second ammendment the USA is toast.
