Look at that!!! I'm amazed and impressed all at once!man those things are relentless... i'm finding them of all sizes now.. adult, juveniles, and babies... i just want genocide!!!!
oh i'm right on board with you on the fuckin squirrels... those bastards ate over hundred of my peaches this year... next year i'm running an electric fence down there!!!! be prepared for some great videos of squirrels getting zapped!!! and i'm not getting them the little rodent one, i'm getting the cattle size!!!!
i have mesquite hear but i can only get it in chips,,, my smoker likes whole logs.. so i just make up pouches of aluminum foil and put that in with my coals... it's such a strong flavor it doesn't need much either.. just like hickory, doesn't need much for the loud flavor!! we have lots of hickory around here, a few different kinds too... oak is one of my favs as well, white oak especially!!
man i sure wish i was around for taco day,,,, fuck that beef looks good... plus i could have brought ya a chainsaw too, man i have a few of em laying around. i was thinking of getting a battery chainsaw to cut up kindling in the garage!!!
and yes sir, i do still have the projector... some times i have to modify the 4k movies to get them to play. when the files have to many subtitles on them the movie skips.. i have a free program that lets you remove whatever you want from a .mkv file.
i also have a 100 inch screen.. maybe 110.. don't remember... it's big... i keep it all in the garage because we tried an outdoor deal for friends and the bugs were so ridiculous to the point we couldn't even finish the movie.. so it kind of spoiled my drive in nights... and nobody wants to sit in their car in the winter to watch a movie... so i have it connected in the garage and have it on my big sound system so it thumps pretty good!!!
that is really badass about greenpoint seeds bro... i had that experience once in my life. a guy delivered me roofing materials before even confirming and getting my CC info.. it was the next morning after i called him.. he even left a free calendar for me!! i called and said man i never even paid you.. he said yeah but you bought for here before... amish run. i'll never buy metal roofing from any other place now!
speaking of something else badass....

i would have said it's all yours... i hate fish.. i like almost anything else from the ocean except for fish... every few years i try some just to see if my tastes have changed (because that has happened with other foods) but nope still turned off from any fish at all... i've eaten seafood from all around the world and liked everything but fish... and some eel from korea that was whole in a bowl was pretty nasty but anything else hell yeah!
i'm about to go caterpillar hunting. i found that when it's dark and i use a super bright headlight they are much easier to see. i bet they tastes gross... like mushy tomato leaves...
i'd also like to harvest a sky master plant.... hopefully i have time for both!!!
Man you have me thinking now with the electric fencing stuff! Yep they took out my peaches long ago and fucked up the trees so bad I had no choice but to cut them down they got so stunted. I really dont wanna wrap everything in netting or anything like that. Maybe a moat with squirrel eating gators in it or something would work. I also see motion sensor sprinklers as maybe being possible or maybe critter ridder spread around but I have my dogs to consider too. Just so frustrating. Now when I see roadkill squirrels I kinda think they had it coming. Some neighbor on my neighborhood forum found a baby squirrel and asked what to do with it and my first thought was wrap it in bacon and grill up the little fucker
I'm hoping my drive in movie idea works. Last Saturday we had tix to a drive in hosted by Anthony Michael Hall. It was a double feature of Breakfast Club and Vacation and AMH was gonna do a Q&A at intermission. It was to be our first night on a date in months and I was so excited. Never even been to a drive in ever but that dang hurricane came along and the event got cancelled.
I looked around for other drive ins and found a little quaint drive in of 20 cars max for this Saturday and they'll show Jurassic Park II. Place has been around since 2017 and has lots of good reviews so I'll get a feel for if my idea will work out. I'm also hopeful about it because a home down the hill is a big Alabama fan home and they host outdoor watch parties using this big inflatable screen. Not sure if bugs are an issue or not for them or maybe they just so hammered they dont notice. Hell they're Bama fans so they might eat the bugs!
This weekend I'm installing the post for my speaker set. I found some restored drive in speakers online with a light up junction box to install in the driveway. They're the kind that hang on the window. I could pipe sound thru my boombox but I wanna get a little retro style with this project
I just need to set a pole in the ground to mount the box the wire it up so it can plug into the projector. For films I'll just plug in my Firestick and stream thru my wifi. I have a shit ton of movies I own both thru Prime Video and Vudu I've bought over the years so that will be the movie source. And on Halloween I might throw a watch party for all the kids around here and show The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
I tell ya man I get these ideas about doing something and I go off the deep end to make them happen
Hell I might even get a custom drive in movie marquee with neon built. Call it the Lone Palm Dive In, named after the big ass palm tree I planted in my yard a long time ago
