Never.  I just make sure my fishing partner does. 

Just kidding of course.  Who in their right mind wouldn't carry a pump?  Noodles, sponges, buckets are fine, then the pump is a back up or a rescue for someone else.  But there is a pump and it is always tested at the launch.

What's the problem?  Little wasabi and it's good. 

General Talk / Re: Need a boat towed from SLC will pay $$

Not sure where in 'bay area' but from Oakland to SLC is about 750 miles each way, 11.5 hours drive.  Round trip is 1500 miles.  I have a diesel truck gets 15mpg empty and 14mpg towing.  Diesel is about $4 a gallon.  $200 in fuel there and $215 return for at least $415 in fuel alone.  23 hour drive time, figure 3 days with a one night layover in SLC.  Wear/tear on tires, oil, meals, 1 night in a hotel in SLC on the layover, the expenses alone total over $500.   

For what ever reason, site D1 was available this morning.  Sure wasn't last night!  I reserved it. 

Who would'a thunk; the cool kids are over in D this year?!   :smt002

Open area between B and A sections

Thanks Hojo!   :smt006 I seen that area this year with yellow tape barricade and no one camping in it.  Since I'm self contained, I'll have no problems in over flow. 

Where is over flow?
I don't see it on the map.

Nothing left.  Lost my cool status.  Guess I ain't going next year.

Hmmm who’s fault could it be? Must be from polution coming from the opposite side of the world. Come to think of it I think all our air pollution is from China and our president is Russia’s fault.

Just to be totally clear nothing is our fault.

Could someone pass me a tinfoil hat please. 😄

Jeez, lighten up Francis.  I was making a joke.  The nuke plant leak is an accident, I didn't say it was anyone's fault.

Looks like cancer;

I speculate that the nuke plant in Japan that is still spilling out radioactive debris is the cause.

All the cool kids already know, have their reservations for camping in and the campground is full.  Guess you didn't make the grade.  I KNOW Craig didn't!  Ha

Just messin' with ya.  Ha!

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?
