Mike I know you were being facetious in the comparison with California. I'm sorry to hear of moms passing but glad you could be there for her.

Re: Drying Your Food

Try dried Kiwi. Since you're not a fan of dried citrus you're sure to get scurvy and dried Kiwi likely won't be too sweet for you.

Re: Sailrite LSZ-1 WANTED

Mike,
A very common cause of what you described is using a needle that is too small for the thread. If the thread can't pass through the eye of the needle freely, it will jam the machine and the...

Re: Sailrite LSZ-1 WANTED

Do you have a time limit for when you need to buy? A good deal will take some time, especially since you will probably want to buy from someone relatively local. (International, or even cross country...

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

Stearns. About 10 years old, maybe 12. Have been on the boat all of these years, summer and winter.

Re: What to take, toss, sell or store

Not too late at all. October here has plenty of wonderful days, when it finally cools down. Great riding weather in the mountains, fall colors galore.
