  Interesting cabins/RV
Posted by: mac66 - 10-18-2015, 05:26 PM - Forum: Shelter - No Replies

On a recent trip to Alaska I was in Homer on the Spit.  The Spit is 5 mile long narrow peninsula that sticks out into the bay. It is where all the fishing boats (hundreds if not thousands) are and there are shops, bars, campgrounds etc the length of it.   My wife and I were walking along the waterfront and saw these cabins on top of shipping containers. There were dozens of them. Note the fences between the cabins. I don't know the use but I presume they are for the crews of the fishing boats while they are ashore.

This motorhome was nearby as well.

  UST 30-Day Lantern
Posted by: Tom Mac - 10-15-2015, 02:05 PM - Forum: Lighting - Replies (7)

Haven't seen it mentioned here , but was on another site...
I picked one up for the family ( safe for kids ) and was quite pleased with it. I like the fact it can hang upside down with the top off if needed too.

Has 3 levels of brightness and SOS.  30 day rating on low.
Been running it now for 3 days on low, going to see if it makes the 30 days as mentioned; uses 3 D cells with leds ( glow in dark rubber too )

I picked up 2k small pistol primers and a couple of pounds of powder today. I used one of those pounds and 1170 primers to press out some range ammo this evening. This batch of 9mm cost me about 9.7 cents per round to load and a 6-pack of Hopsicutioner Beer. I got a deal on 147 gr bullets a few years back and that keeps the cost way down. I also used a friends Dillon 650 press (press rental is what the beer was for).  BTW:  I bought all the CCI 500 small primers I found today.

I will be at the range on Thursday burning some of these off.

It comes in 2 flavors 49cc and 125cc. The 49cc has a 400 mile range on a tank of fuel. To me it is a bit pricey at $2500 and you have to put it together (49cc version).

  Eating Utensils
Posted by: Tsquare - 10-14-2015, 12:16 AM - Forum: Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting & trapping - Replies (1)

Back when I was in the military I had a fork, spoon, and knife that I carried when I went on deployment. I didn't use the issue utensils. I had a set of polished aluminum Sea-to-Summit similar to this:
[Image: 7bddfc9e-72e6-46a3-aec2-cebcb1d0f33a?size=440]
This set is aluminum but it is now anodized. Somewhere in the past few years the spoon went missing on my set. I have been looking for a replacement but I have not found one. I have been looking at the KA BAR Hobo and the Case Hobo knives as well as more traditional camping sets. Does anybody have any experience with camping utensils?

  Open carry
Posted by: David - 10-13-2015, 12:23 PM - Forum: The Pub - Replies (3)

Found out yesterday that open carry in Florida is going through legislation.  Proposed by a State Representative, it has apparently passed the house panel and is on to committee for possible vote in January.   Currently Florida does not allow open carry except for activities such as hunting, fishing and things of that nature.  Florida does have a concealed carry (by permit) in place and has had one for decades.  As I understand the proposal, those with CCW permits would be allowed to open carry if it passes.  I'm unclear if it will be an option to either conceal or open carry or if it is a move to open carry only. 

Anyone live in an open carry state?  Is it only open carry or do you have the option to conceal?  What are your experiences?

Personally I'm big on the 2nd amendment.  From all the research I've seen, the more good guys (gals) that have guns the less bad stuff happens.  I'm a firm believer that if people could carry on airplanes that 9/11 would not have happened.  In my opinion, a person without a firearm in this day and age is a victim-in-waiting. 

The argument can be made that carrying openly makes you a target.  But I also consider that if a bad guy sees 50 people at the mall food court or grocery store or theater he is less likely to start a shooting spree like we've seen on the news in various places.  True, crazy people are going to be out there regardless but at least it would give people options other than being sheep.

Thoughts or open carry experiences....

  Mini mobil multi band radio
Posted by: mac66 - 10-13-2015, 12:12 AM - Forum: Communications - Replies (1)

Well the Chinese are at it again and have come out with another cheap multiband radio for <$100. This one is for a mobile/vehicle use and is rated at 25 watts VHF and 20 watts UHF.  I've not got one yet but have been looking at them since it came out in June. Still some software glitches but when the radio nerds work them out this may very well be a great little radio to use in conjunction with the Baofeng handhelds. It actually is getting some good reviews other than some noted programming issues.

QYT KT8900 aka as a variety of other brand designations.  Here is link to a youtube vid.


Keep an eye on this one. It's small, cheap with decent power for a mobile. I expect some software upgrades within a few months and some hacks will take care of any issues it may have. This thing is just begging for use as a base station at the cabin or mounting in a Go Box. It's gonna be a great bang for the buck.
