This was an idea that I had for some time. When I fabricated the quilted aluminum panels a few weeks ago, the idea all finally came together for a new (much needed) light in my kitchen. . A few notes about things : I used pine for the framing, and 3/16 underlayment for the metal backer. You certainly could use anything else though. Poplar would be great if you were going to paint it, and oak might look great for … Read More
So, we have been toying with the idea of a second camper for a while now. We know that eventually the kids will be bigger and the Regal Eagle will just not be big enough. A few months back I came across online, and purchased a 1962 Shasta Airflyte. We have been working on my mom/dad’s teardrop, and are almost finished up with that. I figured NOW was the time to get started on the shasta. So, I recently “tore … Read More
Quick and Easy Asian Tyson® Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Recipe – We are constantly on the prowl for a new recipe, it’s a new year, and here are two parts to this Asian Chicken and Cauliflower Rice. Both are pretty quick, easy, and only 1 part takes a little prep work. You can pickup the Tyson® Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips at Sam’s Club, and have this ready in about 30 minutes. The extra prep work (on the part of the cauliflower) I believe is worth it, in that it is better for you than a high starch rice (although that would work just as well if you choose).
So, a few months back I joined up in a great partnership with Case knives, and since then I have really come back to carrying a pocket knife on a regular basis. A lot of people have noticed my knife (in my pocket) and said “what’s that for’? My question to them is What is it NOT for? I used to tote a knife, and I quit for a while. Not really sure why. I guess maybe my pockets just … Read More
So, my son is starting to get a little bit older now…. Obviously. I think it’s about time for him to start learning some responsibilities with some of the things that I had as a kid. This all started a few months ago, when he and I went target shooting. He had asked me about “shooting guns”. I taught him the basic rules of gun safety, quizzed him a bit, and then we went to our makshift range out back. Although he … Read More
This is the first video in a series where I’m going to cover, from start to finish, with videos, how to build your very own teardrop camper. Let me first say that this is in no way the only way to do it, this is just the way I’ve done it and I am happy with the results. My videos are going to cover the majority of the build, but the notes and all below will show some of the … Read More
Well, if you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that among other things, we really like to camp. Part of our camping adventure is that I built our Teardrop (ish) camper that we currently camp in. I started a series of posts a while back that covered the what and how of our camper build. Y BUT. I have decided to take this a different (AND MUCH BETTER) direction. So this will be the last … Read More
