General Talk / Carrying a Tourniquet While Diving
« on: November 26, 2017, 11:40:13 AM »
Great concept,but really practical?
Wanted to open this on it's own thread.
Sitting here, comfortably in front of the computer, it's easy to rationalize applying a tourniquet to a bleeding wound.
But in the heat of the moment would you really have the opportunity or the wherewithal to do it given a GWS scenario given the pain, fear and shock of the moment? Would your motor skills, at that moment, even be capable of deploying the device properly? Would you even be able to get it out of the case?
And what's to say the GWS wouldn't have taken it during the attack?
I think it would be better to leave it on your dive platform if you are going to have one at all.
You certainly won't be applying it in the water. That's the first place you want to get out of.
Way too many times I've seen people talk the talk but when the $#!T really hit the fan they were completely incapable of walking the walk.
If you want to carry one on your person, that's fine, but have a back up in your dive platform.


General Fishing Tips / Pay Attention To Your Surroundings

It's not ALL about the fishing.
Found some lost photos and put them together in a vid.
Good times!

General Fishing Tips / Another way to tie a Palomar knot?
« on: November 05, 2017, 12:01:51 PM »
Tuna knot?
The end result looks like a Palomar to me.
You have to be impressed with the aquarium in the background.  :smt002

Great photography

General Talk / Twin Stickin' It To The Man!
« on: September 09, 2017, 06:24:28 PM »
The 2 hour project took me 11 hours.
Small section of the plywood sub floor in the way.
Becky wanted the base plate to be under the carpet.....time suck right there.
Cable mount needed to be grinded down a bit to accommodate the speedo cable.
Figuring it out for the first time was fun..not.
And directions? Virtually non existent.
At least itís done!

General Talk / Twin Stick Transfer Case
« on: September 02, 2017, 12:23:22 PM »
Has anyone done a cable twin stick shifter on their transfer case?
I have a golden opportunity on an NP 205 right now and was wondering the pros and cons of cable shifters.........if you really know.

General Talk / Got Pain??
« on: July 23, 2017, 07:45:42 PM »
I have a lot of it.
Wilderneshunter (Bryan) turned me onto this salve.
I'm a definite skeptic so I need real first hand experience before I give a thumbs up.
Knee, shoulder, neck...this really does work.
I tried it with the expectations that it wouldn't work at all.
Did the knee first. Woke up the next morning with no pain. I didn't realize it at first. When I did realize it wasn't hurting I figured it was a fluke.
Shoulder...same thing.
Neck...same thing.
I am sold!
It's kind of like a Mennen Speed Stick. Rub it on where you hurt and, at least for me, pain is either gone or WAY less than before.
Thought I'd pass it on in case anyone else like me is feeling the aches and pains (dare I say it?) of getting older.
Hopefully this will keep me in the game a little longer.


General Talk / Best Water Nozzle for Washing Your Gear
« on: July 16, 2017, 10:02:47 AM »
Bullseye Power Nozzle

This thing puts out such a small stream of water (about the diameter of a sewing needle) that you can really get in to the finer nooks and crannies of your gear to get ALL the crud out.
It also puts out a spray and super powerful stream to get the big stuff clean too.
Used it for the first time today and I wish I had it 10 years ago.
I am amazed at the varying sprays it puts out, especially for something so compact.

General Talk / GWS Kayak Attack on Video
« on: May 19, 2017, 05:23:12 AM »
If this has already been posted...sorry. Been real busy lately and haven't kept up on reading all the posts.
The guy who was attacked said it happened about 10 minutes before the guy in the hotel started to video the ordeal.
That's a long time to be in panic mode.
Glad he made it out safe.
Amazing how the shark kept attacking the kayak.

I need a positive ID.

General Talk / How Much Are We Tracked?
« on: April 09, 2017, 03:51:28 AM »
Intentional or coincidence?
Yesterday I replied to the thread, "How old is your oldest reel that you still fish".
This was my reply, "Pfluger Medalist  1494 1/2  30+years".
This morning I get an email from Amazon with the title:
"Pflueger President Spinning Re..." and more
Of course there are shopping recommendations based on previous Amazon purchases in the email which I understand, but I had no idea they were so assiduous in their tracking.
