  1. Where are you located? In San Diego... The Gourmet Bagger in Point Loma has great sandwiches. They aren't fancy, but just a good ole fashion sandwich. They serve it in a brown paper bag with a homemade chocolate chip cookie that is the best! Another Point Loma special....Torpasta/Devine Pastabilities. It's a hollowed out torpedo roll and they fill it with whatever pasta you want. Lasagna, tortellini, spaghetti, etc...Freaking amazing. Hope you like carbs! Also...on Coronado...Park Place Deli. It's a liquor store on Orange Ave. It's a big sandwich and freaking good! Try their Diablo. It's a spicy chicken sandwich on a ciabatta roll. Get it with "extra diablo"! Then you can go down to the beach and eat it.
  2. @Retired and you've not even scratched the surface.
  3. At this point, I fully support Marshal law so long as Trump is in charge just to see the left suffer. And...I'm not really a Trump supporter. I fully support massive human rights violations, prison camps, detainment, you name it. I just want the left to suffer in a way that is beyond comprehension. I just don't care anymore.
  4. Thank God I live in a suburb of San Diego and NOT the San Diego city limits. I'll be unaffected by this....for now.
  5. I had a 27 foot pontoon with a 350hp Merc inboard/outboard. It was awesome. 50 MPH plus all day...smooth as could be. It was the Merc 350 HO motor. No issues. The big thing with a pontoon that goes faster, you'll want a whale tail and get the right prop. The prop would cavitate due to the outboard/prop being up higher to go into shallower water. The whale tail helps keep water down on the prop.
  6. The problem is, we no longer "melt" into a single culture or people. Most of the "immigrants" these days only come here for the benefits and they stick together, practicing their own beliefs, customs and never make any attempts to learn "our" culture, language or way of life. It is time for America to establish an identity. Declare the majority language as the official language. Declare the majority customs, norms and beliefs as the official structure and identity of our country. I'm tired of "immigrants" invading my country and trying to make it just like the same sh*t hole they just left.

    I wore boots for 25 years. A good pair of boots and insoles will really make a difference. I know a lot of people really like Redwings. I swear by Belleville boots. These are the best boots I have ever worn. A little spendy though, but worth every penny if you're on your feet a lot. https://uspatriottactical.com/belleville-800st-waterproof-steel-toe-flight-and-flight-deck-boots-black/
  8. That's why I have long range sniper stuff....you won't ever see me.
  9. There's not a whole lot that will cause widespread panic and chaos. Like you said, let the "unprepared" try and flee, after that chaos dies down, then I'll make my move. Not like any of us will have an easy escape pulling a trailer or RV. For those that are asking the questions. You need water to live. Period. Figure that out. A lifestraw or like product will get you far. Fire. A good knife...simple tools. rope, string, stuff like that. Dried foods. First aid/medications. Clothes, shelter, bedding. These are just some of the things to think about. For a lot of you, read books on surviving in the wild. Sounds stupid but...get books with pictures. These will show you "how to". I have taught my oldest daughter how to survive. That girl can leave life for a week, live off the land and survive just fine. The girl is an extreme backpacker. I'd challenge any of you to be able to keep up with her...including myself. She's sick in the head. She lives for the shittier, the better style camping. She goes out every year in the winter and disappears for a week or so by herself or with her little sister. Her last trip was up at Crater Lake last year. She did 50 plus miles in the snow and ice. She's about 100# soaking wet and carries a 65# pack. Beast mode for sure.
  10. I'm formally trained to survive... I have "stuff" but I also know how to live off the land. I also have no moral compass so if you have what I need, you won't feel a thing and thank you for your donation.

    CBD oil

    The cannabis industry really planned on people using it more than they projected. States overtaxed, over-regulated, made it too restrictive. Producers are sitting on years worth of product and are trying to find ways to use and sell it. CDB is easier for them to market and get around the government regulations. The biggest problem I see is i do believe there is some goodness in CBD, but the quality and the "trendiness" of it in everything has already watered it down and the public is losing interest. Cannabis plants that produce CBD aren't grown to get you "high". They are strains that focus on high concentrations of CBD and low THC. The bulk of the market producers grew and grow high THC products because that's what they planned on being their biggest market. So now, as they scramble to make money off their stock piles, the CBD products aren't what they could be or should be, because they aren't the quality of plants that best suit the CBD market.

    Jeff, I fought a battle with plantar fasciitis that lasted over a year. It was crippling. I ended up taking an injection, months of physical therapy and now wear good shoes and most of all, good inserts. My flip flop days are over. Let me know if you have any questions. I highly recommend these insoles... https://www.powersteps.com/shop-products/protech-orthotics/protech-full-length.html
  13. I wish my buddy was on here. He bought a new Stealth a couple years ago and it's been nothing but a POS. He bought it through Giant...they are absolutely useless. He bought an extended warranty...nothing but fighting them on everything. He goes through Forest River...they simply can't get it right nor do they show any interest or concern to make it right. I know everyone always wants something "new" but I'd seriously look for a good used one and save your money for a better toy, new truck, or whatever. I bought a new Attitude several years ago. It took me almost 6 years to get the thing fixed and working right. I tried every avenue I could until I went on a full on social media smear campaign. They finally asked..."what will it take to make you go away?" FIX MY TRAILER OR BUY IT BACK! They finally fixed it and even that was a battle every step of the way. Now...it works as advertised. But come on...6 years??? Buy a good used one. Take it somewhere and have it upgraded or repaired. In the end you'll have a better trailer for cheaper.
  14. I've flown helicopters in combat made by the lowest bidder, maintained by kids saying they are the best of the best, yet accept below minimum wage to stand in front of a bullet to protect peoples freedoms and rights that don't give a shit about the country or the means that provide it to them... Fly on the 737 Max? What have I got to lose?

    F this guy...

    So Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan Chase says America is stupid and has too many excessive regulations and laws to prevent him and others from making more money off of hardworking Americans, collapse our economy again and get another taxpayer bailout. This is one f the guys responsible for the financial collapse in 2008. He should suffer a public beating and lynching for saying and thinking this crap. https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/jamie-dimon-jpmorgan-regulation-165058287.html

    Life's regrets

    It is a consideration...you sure you all want that? 🤣

    Life's regrets

    Dude...I could go on and on for days. Senior leadership in the military is the worst display of ass kissing and "what's in it for me" I've ever seen. Yet they wrap themselves in the flag and try to look honorable.

    Life's regrets

    Great topic HondaJim Interesting that a lot of you regret NOT joining the military. Any particular reason? I did join right out of high school. I enlisted, was a jet mechanic for 9 years, got picked up for a Commission...flew helicopters for 16 years among many other things. I retired at 43 with my pension, medical and other benefits. I haven't worked in 6 years and just go to school. I'm getting ready to finish my second Masters. I mainly do it because the VA PAYS me to go to school...on top of paying for school. Kind of nice, but after 3 years of going to school (Masters, Culinary college, second Masters)...I'm really over school. It's not hard, just over it. I still have more time left to get a third Masters if I want. With all that said, I hated the Navy. I enjoyed my jobs, enjoyed mentoring young people, helping junior personnel that didn't have a voice. I hated the leadership, the constant social and political experiment that we had to go through. I hated budget cuts and having to try and keep my troop's morale up when I knew I was even lying to myself. I have a very different view of America. I see America as an ungrateful country and people. All the talk of people supporting Veterans is absolute bullshit. I constantly get my benefits cut or put on the chopping block by Congress and the President (not bashing Trump, just all Presidents). I was promised things that Congress takes away and gives to others who haven't earned it. Congress took away military pension retirement. Now all new personnel joining have to pay into a 401K type program if they want a retirement...which they can't draw on until they are 65...unlike my pension that I could have taken at 38 without penalty. I could go on and on... I'm glad I did it, I'm grateful for what I have, but it took a lot of my soul with it. Regrets? I wish I hadn't partied as much as I did. I had a lot of fun, have a lot of memories and stories but it took a toll on my body and mind. Overall, I just wish I had taken better care of myself. I also wish I had been a better man at times. I think we all have a few of those moments we wish we could rewind and do different. I also wish I had more actively pursued getting a job when I first retired from the Navy. It's been a challenge to find a job now having been out of work for 6 years. I don't have to work, but I just want more. Plus, I'm bored.
  19. While digging out Wash 10 would be cool... I'd rather see them put up a crossing we cold either drive over or an overpass. Having to remove and reinstall your buggy whip each time would suck and I could just see BLM..."Where's your whip?" Can't fix stupid. Seems like it would be a recipe for failure from the get go.
  20. I'll believe it when I see it. And...this will be the permanent BLM DUI/shakedown for everything checkpoint, due to it being a choke point and they can limit passage and check everyone.
  21. Stop being a little biotch... Dude...I feel for you. Like I said, I've been down this road before. So many times I wanted to go to the hospital for drugs, help...I feared if I did, I'd never fly again. I will reiterate...if they say "ureteroscopy"....welcome to the most pain you will ever endure in your life. But...after a few days the pain and stones will be gone but you will never forget it. Every time I go to the doctor now..."what's your pain on a scale of one to ten?" "Ahhh...4." "You're ok then. What's your ten?" I tell them...and they accept my pain level and treat me... You're get through this. You'll change your diet, make healthier choices to do what you can to prevent it. Again...welcome to the club.
  22. I store clothes, some non-perishable foods, etc... I keep things stocked the best I can. I do this so not to ruin a trip if I forget things. I have a big green parachute bag. I pack all things from each trip, take them home, wash, replace, whatever. Then big green bag goes back to the trailer each trip. I am putting together a box of stuff for my car over the summer. I had it put together for my RZR but never got one together for my new car since I got it half way through the season. In the past, I've had a note pad out out and would write things down during the trip and make sure and tear it off to take home as a to do list.
  23. Mine have consistently been the size of a peppercorn. But yes...feels like Satan ripping a flaming boulder the size of a house through your pee hole.
