Re: Compact Drill vs. Impact Driver for Lag Screws

I've never tried using a compact drill for playa lag screws. From the first time it was demonstrated to me (thanks, Just_Joe!) it was one of those 'clearly the right tool for the job' situations..... My pleasure. One of these days I'm going to start with a drill and finish with a ratchet wrench, ju...

This was going to be a "Works in Progress" post, but it changed tone a few hours after starting. I've been in a carpentry mode the last few days and decided, what the hell, why not make an identical set of smaller ABC blocks to bring out this year. When I realized I had a few extras, I dec...

Re: How do physical ticket transfers work?

Once shipped, it looks like the only way to transfer a ticket is the old fashioned way. Person to person, preferably face to face. Subsequent "owners" do not need to have it registered in their name

Good luck!

Re: At what time does it start getting cold at night?

At what time does it start to get cold at night? Yeah, what the other guys said. The sun dips below the mountains at ~ 7:15pm on Sunday and then a couple minutes earlier each night. It's full on dark about 30-40 minutes after that. Once the sun is gone, winds die down and temperatures drop quickly....
