General Talk / Re: FF Connection Corrosion Help
« on: August 13, 2018, 10:42:19 PM »
Yes, it says safe on electronics, but it is basically an oil. I use corrosionX on my reels, but I do not use it for electronics. I think of it as a general purpose oil. Little bit of water would flush it away. Dielectric grease is designed to be used on electronics.
"Dielectric grease is electrically insulating and does not break down when high voltage is applied. It is often applied to electrical connectors, particularly those containing rubber gaskets, as a means of lubricating and sealing rubber portions of the connector without arcing."

did you read the link?

Here it is again.

Corrosion-x is not meant for electronics.

What are you talking about?  Right on the label, "Safe For Electronics"

read this link.  It will explain how it works.  I've been using it for 6 years on my FF connectors and battery connections with great results.  If sand does get in, I flush it with this stuff.  It works great!

I went through Lackland in January of '75.  It snowed there that year!  If you had posted before he left, I could have advised him on what job to take while in basic.  Each person is assigned a job; laundry queen, latrine queen, bed aligner, etc.  Laundry queen was best as I had plenty of down time while the washers and dryers were running.  Eventually I became an instructor at a technical school teaching instrument landing systems and tactical air navigation.  Turned out, I enjoyed hollering at Airmen!  Ha! 
Flying is the best.  The smell of JP4 still is a rush for me. 
Oh, tell him, while he's in tech school, to join the drill team.  Drill Team has it's own dorm wing and gets out of all sorts of mundane jobs like lawn mowing, KP duty, etc.  Plus we traveled a lot for tournaments.  We drilled with rifles, so there was that aspect that was pretty cool too.  One honor was that our unit lowered the flag each evening.  We got to have lunch once with POW's that had recently been released from Hanoi.  Very cool. 
If he likes sports, have him check out the base's baseball team.  I played shortstop and got to travel all over East of the Mississippi playing ball. 
Wishing him well and you and yours peace with his decision to volunteer. 
The flight line rocks! 

Eric, we are gonna be there.  Any specials on rooms at The Tides?  We want to treat ourselves and NOT camp this time.  Pets allowed?

I believe more salmon were caught than any other species.  You should'a come out Ken, even for just half a day. 

If you'd like to have your rock fish fried up, please bring some of your cleaned and de-boned fillets over to our camp.

Wow!  What a nice treat!  I'll bring some fish, if I catch any, Friday.
In the meantime;

Map update.  Lots of unclaimed sites.  If you haven't already posted which is yours, better do it soon.  I'm leaving early tomorrow morning.  If you know of someone who has one of the unclaimed sites, post that too and I'll update the map again.

Just got done talking with her and she said they had an issue storing the card for a year . I paid over the phone and got my confirmation then and printed out my parking pass. See you up there!  :smt006

ps : make SURE to not tell Andy the code and maybe he won't be able to get in! :smt005

Ditto.  Some gal called, caller ID said it was Albion Campground.  I gave her the credit card info and almost immediately got the e-mail we are paid up and a parking pass to print.  Included was the gate code, the wifi password, the laundry room code and my confirmation code.

They let their friends win what?  A shell?  I love that the tournaments are leaning to personalized, hand made awards instead of cash prizes.  I also love that the drawings are completely random and support just causes.  At least the events I attend. 
I'm hardly aware it's even a contest.  I see these gatherings as a way I can get on the water and know there's enough folks around in case something goes bad as well as a way to meet up with friends old and new.  I'm amazed at how many can gather, party and (I've personally) never witnessed so much as even a raised voice in anger between participants. 

General Talk / Re: Picking a spot to retire

We love El Dorado County.  The biggest negative is the fire risk, but seems anywhere in CA now is at risk.  You could find a place with 2 or more acres 2 bed 1.5 bath for around $300,000. 
Don't worry about snow country, YOU'RE RETIRED!  Just wait it out and stock up.  There's lots of mountain fishing beyond the usual stomping grounds everyone knows about, gold panning, lots of outdoor activities.  From my place to, say, Albion, is a 215 mile drive, 4 hours depending on traffic.

Every cubic foot of pool noodle displaces 7 gallons of water that otherwise would have filled the hull.  The noodles aren't for flotation, they are to prevent taking on water by filling the void inside a kayak.  I use those air filled packing bags that come with shipping orders.  Every time I get some, I shove them down the hatch.   

General Fishing Tips / Re: Crawfish spots?
« on: July 20, 2018, 07:47:15 AM »
Ice House Reservoir has a good population of crawdads if you set the traps on rocky outcroppings.  I'll set my trap as I come in from an evening fish and check it when I come back in from a morning fish.  Usually enough  for two in the trap for my omelet for breakfast and chill the rest for a salad at dinner.
The clean waters of mountain lakes make for great tasting 'dads. 
Hit me up when you get back and I'll take you to a couple 'secret' spots I don't talk about.  Although, by late October they are snowed in and it takes 4 wheel drive even without snow. 

Well, there goes the neighborhood....
