I grilled and smoked the other night. Sirloin steaks, sausages, chicken breasts, St. Louis style ribs, skirt steak and hamburgers.

One of the modifications I'm making is to the light wiring. Currently the headlights are wired from the switch to the generator. Lights won't operate unless the engine is running, and at idle are very dim. The faster the engine runs, the brighter the lights.

So I am going to provide power to the switch from the battery side of the starter solenoid.

Later on I plan on replacing the factory front lights with some small LED lights.

Also got my cupholder mounted!

Read some young idiot posted on another forum, that the United States has never experienced such an event as the crisis we are going through now with the coronavirus.

Hmmm....then what about the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic? Between 500K to almost 675K in the United States alone died from the Spanish Flu.

Are the not teaching history anymore in school?

We were and are pretty good on groceries and supplies. Biggest concern was bread products and pet food. But so far we haven't yet had an issue with either.

Shoot looters and thieves. Best advice I can give!

I did now for almost an hour this morning before it started raining, again. This mower is a 1994 Montgomery Wards Power Kraft. Has an 18 HP Briggs and Stratton, and a 46" deck. It rides so much better than the other riding mower as well.

I'm really liking this mower! :rocknroll2:

I need to now and burn some brush piles, but it's too wet right now. And there is more rain being forecast in a few days. :bangheadonwall:
Best time to burn the stuff when everything around is wet.
Little diesel fuel to entice it and done.

I'll have to wait until it quits raining so much and dries out some first.

A good prepper is someone who you have no idea just how prepared they are. :D

From many that I have seen, like to brag or boast about how much, or what they have in preparations. There are several reality TV programs about them.

I'll stand on my previous statement. Vast majority of preppers are idiots. Some more so than others.

What I have, or how much in the way of preparations is my business. I fully plan on keeping it that way.

Maybe the media got it all twisted up backasswards like they do everything else Axxe.

Maybe the reality TV prepper shows are just a. Bunch of unemployed actors,, doing what they do best,, pretending to be someone, or something, else POORLY.
Most reality shows,, whether miners, gun Owners, farmers, truck drivers, etc,,are so freaking pathetically stupid and ridiculous,, they totally mis represent what the person they're trying to pretend to be.
 Their ideas on WHAT REALITY really is, is so skewered,  they've no clue. So they just make shit up as they go.

Maybeeeeeeeeee, Pembas is right. Maybeeeeeeeeee,,, the REAL prepper is the guy who does it,very quietly,, and ain't stupid enough to tell anyone.   :th_thicon_funny:

I can agree with that to some degree. But personally, I detest the term prepped!

I ain't sick, but I'm in my own stay at home lockdown! :wave1:

Got a pork roast in the freezer, and the wife picked up some fresh new potatoes, carrots, and green beans at the farmer's market the other day. Gonna throw them in the slow cooker for dinner tonight.

Well the newer mower runs and mows like a champ.

I'm going to take advantage of the rainy days to do some minor repairs and maintenance on it. More rain being forecast for the next several days.

Earlier in the week I was mowing, and ran out of gas, while waiting for the wife to bring some home. Well I filled it up, and got back to mowing, but soon after it started running rough and surging. Figured it picked up some trash an clogged up the carb. Tore it down and cleaned it at least eight times, and still couldn't get it to run right.

Found an older, in much better condition, and larger one that I bought yesterday. Thing mows like a beast! :rocknroll2:


Almost sounds like you got some bad gas.

It was fresh gas from the station, and is working fine in the push mower, and the "new" riding mower.

I gots to know. How many of these generators did you buy? :th_thicon_lol:

IMO, preppers are idiots, who preach doom and gloom, and some, I believe hope and pray for an apocalyptic event.

There is a huge difference between being a prepped, and being prepared for disasters to ride things out. Huge difference.

I went with my brother yesterday afternoon close to Normagee to help him pick up a golf cart he bought the other day. We stopped in Buffalo at Texas Burger to grab a quick bite. Forgotten how good their burgers are. We lost our TB over ten years ago.

Tonight if the weather cooperates enough, I plan on grilling hamburgers, and making homemade french fries for dinner.
