...moderation is for people that just can't commit...My spring/summer/fall go to are these two in moderation, allowing me to remain calm & become 1 w/ my surroundings...

No to derail the thread but i'd be interested in the bassis of the statement above. We went and did the Bourbon trail last year and would love to go again, only a handful distillers I wouldn't buy from but it was either perceived value and or just taste. QC and Ethics I haven't seen or been privy to anything I've heard. I wouldn't badmouth anyone for what they drink, everyone has different taste preferences and I love the history, preservation of Bourbon, and also would prefer to support a family owned business than a Global producer. But if what they produce taste good to me and is available at a reasonable price I'll buy and drink it. Some of the Choices I love are only distributed in KY now and pulled from the NC/SC shelves.I tend to purchase from my customers, those that are really smart, use impeccable quality control. It's nice to literally meet the Maker from Maker's Mark.
I won't badmouth distillers with poor QC (ethics and all). But I won't buy from them....
I manage a training laboratory for chemical analysis instruments. There have been many brilliant distiller employees passing through here, some technicians, some didn't really know what's what.No to derail the thread but i'd be interested in the bassis of the statement above. ...
Interesting,I manage a training laboratory for chemical analysis instruments. There have been many brilliant distiller employees passing through here, some technicians, some didn't really know what's what.
As long as their method is sound and instruments are tuned well, there's usually not a qc problem. But there can be if those first two criteria aren't met and the employees are oblivious to it.
I like supporting the ones that I can confirm know what they're doing.
I'm no snob; I enjoy plenty of them. Mood dependent?Interesting,
So do you drink any other Bourbons other than Bardstown? recommendations are in no way badmouthing anyone, after all we have no idea who you have trained. Seems to me Bardstown was fairly new in the game and didn't have a consistent staple bourdon, new releases as the barrels aged out. I do like to try new things but I am looking for an everyday drinker, EW single barrel was a good value that is no longer sold in SC or NC.
Me: wondering if the moderator is going to move our discussion.
I noticed in Harbor Freight the other day they have a whole 10mm socket / socket accessory kit. Everything in it is for working 10mm nuts and bolts.Am suprised no mechanics have chimed in, so here it goes.......
But none of them can be found.
Flashlights….I keep seeing better and better ones….Off topic - what thing do you have multiples of (at home or on the road) - which is a bit more of an indulgence than an absolute necessity (sockets and wrenches do not count).
For me its Multimeters - I have three regular DVMs (all Sperry units), a clamp- on DVM and a fully analog multimeter. This does not count the several small battery tester meters, nor the three specialy testers (voltage, capacitance, insulation). Accordingly, I have a rats-nest of test leads. One DVM stays in the camper. The Three DVMs are all Sperry's so that I only have to learrn one system. Two are identical, and the 3rd is nearly identical to the other two. I do not own any Fluke gear, as a DIY guy I cannot justify the cost.
I should note that for a long time I only had one multimeter - an Archer fromRadio Shack - very good - assembled from a kit. Then the WWW arrived, and we had access to stuff from China and 2nd hand stuff via ebay. The internet is a great enabler for acquistive folks. To be fair, ebay has enabled me to re-acquire a couple of things preciuos to me - a Panasonic transitor radio that was stolen (I had used it to listen to VOA and America's moon landing) and my first SLR - a Pentax H3 (no meter, screw mount lens) that I had solfd before coming to USA.
oh crap.Fly rods- 6
Sleeping bags- 8
I don't think it's even possible to own too many fishing rods, tackle boxes, or even guns, for that matter, hahaha!She: "How many fishing rods do yo need?"
He: "Just one more..."
(Feel free to substitute "guitars" for "fishing rods")
Is there a 12 step program for we that were formerly consecutive, and are presently concurrent, camper(s) owners?.. I guess the biggest of the multiples... CAMPERS
...have been looking for another small simple P'up to add to the fleet for little trips.
