My neighbor has more chickens than he knows what to do with and he is a fishing fanatic. I still have some bags of crappie in the freezer and can get more whenever I want. Same with eggs. He told me when I want eggs just to get them out of the henhouse. I reload his ammo for his hunting rifles and keep his outboard running. So have all I can eat fish and eggs in return. If I could find a way to make toilet paper I would be set up grin

If anyone can disconnect and make it Scuba 1 will. I have seen him in action. He can fix or make anything he wants. He has already helped and fixed stuff for me and made it better than it was to start with. He is a top hand on anything he wants to do. He has made a fine east TN redneck. I got some apple butter for you the next time I see you.

I thought you had Euro connections , you have probably even used one of them Bidet' things ,the toilets with a butt washer.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Good for you, Scuba! I agree with you on the communist part for sure.


The US has become a place where entertainers and pro athletes are mistaken for people of importance.

Back in the day I was taught and told to fight communism. That was during the cold war times. Never in my dreams would I have thought that at some point in my life I would have those very communists sitting official positions of government in a country that I live in. It sure is crazy. Not time to fight them " yet" but I will not support them either. Just cant do it. And now having a missus and kids and grand kids, Thats a pretty big anchor to haul up and go. So I'll stay and get through this as best I can. Servicing my wood splitter today and then its back to making firewood. I want a big pile of the stuff to season. Have lots of camp grounds here in the area and once the stuff is dried properly, I'll bundle some fit and sell it to the campers. There is a small produce stand on the side of the road that ells live bait and local grown produce. I am pretty sure he won't mind making some easy money on firewood. If one looks a little bit around, there are opportunities to make a little cash all over the place.

I am moving dirt at the moment down at the site where the house is going to be and where I'll set up my saw mill. It takes a bit of time as all I have is that little compact tractor with a front loader. I had a bunch of tree logs to move and wood to cut and split and there is more of that coming up in the next few weeks. No nothing exiting is happening at the moment. Just repetitive things not worth writing about really. The progress is slow but steady though and I am getting a bunch of things done that I have not even thought of a year ago. Its a little bit of a learning curve for sure with being a land lubber. But I have my food plot set up, a bunch of trails cut, found a pond and just away the brush around it, finished my shooting range and graded some tracks into roads. So now I can take the truck and tractor to places on my property that I could only get to on foot or ATV before. Made some implements for the tractor as well. I can now haul water with it as I have made a 3 point carrier for a 70 gallon tank with pump. A lot of things as I said that I did not plan on a year ago and they just keep popping up lol Who I bought the property I did not even know that is had a spring an a pond. These are all things that I found out after the fact. So now I am finding ways to utilize those new resources.

I finished enclosing the bow
Pulled the engines, outdrives and tanks out of the back end as they are not needed for the boat anymore. I will however use the tanks to store diesel for the tractor in. Thats 150 gallons that I can buy now before the idiots start jacking the prices up for the " green new deal " bs.

If you were having your best year ever with Mad Max, would you feel the same?

Lots of businesses are closing in this economy and our taxes are as low as I can remember.

My business has not been much affected by the covid restrictions. I have wound down somewhat myself by choice. I made just north of 100 grand in 2019 but was doing crazy hours because I wanted to buy this property and not take up much of a mortgage on it and pay off what loans I did have. 2020 I made just over half that and could have made more. But I chose to only work one week per month and spend the rest of my time playing around here on the property. I figured that way I don't have to hire people for the stuff that needs done here.

Its a principle thing for me to quit. Like its a principle not to shop at Dicks or Walmart or spend my money at Cheaper than Dirt to name a few. I have even banned Zuckerberg out of my social media and deleted my Facebook account.

I am a pig headed old fart at times but I can live with that. Sometimes the missus cringes about some of the decisions I make but at the end of the day she sticks with me
