A big thank you to Amadeo for once again supporting Crabfest.

Check out his work at: https://www.abachar.com

Will you be taking one of these home?

Checked out his link.  Man I would LOVE to have some of those displayed in my home!  Now when someone in the family asks what I'd like for Christmas, birthday or other, I'll send 'em there.

I have some relevant unopened gifts I received from Christmas I'll be donating.  Maybe this post will inspire others who are sitting on unused, new equipment to donate to this raffle as well.

What the hell is the 'try me' button?!  Does a chunk come off the kayaker when the shark attacks or something?

I've no interest in remaining anon either.  I used to report 'em at the refuges when I hunted those.  I'd come in, tell who ever was manning the check in station the details enough that they would perform a search and I'd give 'em my contact info if they needed it.  Only once was I asked to testify in court.  Happy to; the idiot shot a cormorant.  I was on the same pond and congratulated him on a mighty fine Blue Duck.  Rare I said and one is the limit.  Hell, he didn't even try to hide it when he checked in.  The warden asked him if he shot it, asked to see his shot gun, then asked which was his vehicle in the parking lot.  At this point he got nervous.  When he asked him for the keys, he got sick.

Technically, I think adding a motor requires the craft to be registered and have the hull numbers assigned.  This is taken care of at the DMV.  I only mention it because if a warden stops to check you out, he or she is sure to notice. 

7
If I were looking to add one, I'd add it in a way that preserves the peddle drive.  The peddles work great as a keel for any cross wind and you can assist the motor with your own peddling.  Besides, if you disguise it well, people will think you are a monster at peddling! 
I'd only use it when I got tired peddling, conserving it as my 'spare'.

Let me know ASAP so i can get my registration and waiver in.
Thanks in advance

I have spot 121,  It's plenty wide enough for you to share with us.  You are more than welcome. We have the spot from Thursday to Sunday; 24th to 27th. 
Just pay what ever extra vehicle fee may cost is all.

Fishing Tournaments and Events / Shelter Cove campground confirmation
« on: December 19, 2018, 11:41:33 AM »
I got a phone call yesterday from Shelter Cove confirming my reservation for 2019's Gimme Shelter tournament.  I made the reservation when attending this year's (2018) event and all they did was take down my name, phone # and what site I wanted.  This phone call was just to confirm, they didn't want my credit card # or anything, said they would call closer to the event to collect the 1st night fees.  They did ask how many would be in our camp spot though. 
Anyone else contacted?

Maybe a good home inspector.  My son had one for a house in Roseville he recently bought.  The guy found a water leak from the upstairs master shower by pulling off the kitchen ceiling light below and finding some water stains.  When asked how he found it, knew to look there, he said he saw in the garage ceiling a spot that had been painted over as if hiding something, threw a laser level light on it and it pitched to the kitchen.  Pulled the light fixture off and saw water stains. 
One thing about home damage is; you not only got to identify what is wrong, but how it got that way in the first place.  Fixing the damage only to have it come back isn't gonna do any good.
Hope your friend gets a good inspection and engineer's opinion on what's up. 

If it helps at all, I have a high dollar laser level and a transit.  If he just wants to shoot some elevations, mark some reference points on the structure, I could probably help.  I'm in El Dorado Hills 2 or 3 times a week to visit my dad who lives there.

I can recommend  Burne Engineering.  I've used them for a couple projects of mine and it costs nothing to get a consult.  They are located in El Dorado Hills as well.

Our dog got sprayed 3 times in one week.
Only thing that really worked for us was the following solution
Equal parts baking soda and peroxide with a couple table spoons of Dawn (blue) dish soap. 
Almost anyone in the cove who has a dog has this on hand because it's a pretty common occurrence with our skunk population.
This works because hydrogen peroxide, H2O2 is water w/ an extra atom of oxygen.  The baking soda releases that oxygen and it combines with the skunk juice. (One is starved for an electron in it's outer valance shell, the other has an extra electron)  This converts the skunk juice to a different molecule, one that no longer stinks.  Think of it like metal rusting when it's exposed to oxygen. 
I've used this while camping and a dog of ours got skunked.  After treatment and dry-off, pup slept in the same bed with us later that night, no problem.  However, if your dog gets the skunk stink up it's nose or deep in ears where you can't reach, he'll stink for a month.  Not as bad, but stink none-the-less.

Halfway correct... enter resident organic chemist.  The reason peroxide works is close to what you describe.  Peroxide works by donation of it's "extra oxygen atom" to sulfides present in skunk gnar gnar.  Sulfides are functional sulfur atoms on volatile organic compounds that due to their d-shell, can be oxidized first to sulfoxides, then to sulfates, which are no longer volitile, acidic, and way less smelly.  The baking soda, sodium bicarbonate, neutralizes the acidic sulfate converting it via acid base reaction, to a deprotonated sulfate, which is water soluble, and washes away.  This of course also produces co2, which is the basis for all of your volcano projects in middle school, except with vinegar.  Summers Eve is likely formulated with other additives for better pH control and additives to help cover residual smell.  When ladies start baking sour-dough, sulfides are culprits as well for helping clear the room.   :smt044.

It was kind of you to state my post was halfway instead of halfass correct.  I failed high school chemistry... TWICE!  The instructor called me a smartass. 

I'm told this remedy isn't marketed because of the shipping hazards of an accidental spill generating a flammable gas.  If you stock this at home, maybe want to keep them stored separate.  I put my baking soda in a vac sealed bag to keep dry.

I usually hail them on the radio.  If they don't have a radio or don't answer if they do, then I don't want to talk to them.  Either they are not prepared for the conditions or they want to be left alone.  Either way, I'm not going to get involved.
