General Discussion / Re: BRRRRR!
« Last post by Pete Bog on Today at 05:56:30 PM »
     Today we hovered right around the freezing level, 30 to 33 F. .  Snow started early this morning and kept on until about 3 this afternoon. Big flakes, and little on the wet side and just a whisper of a breeze. One of those days when the sound is muffled and you can hear the snowflakes landing. We ended up with about 5 inches and it was just a beautiful late fall day. Deer tracks in the snow, evergreen branches sagging a bit, all in all, a great day for those of us that are retired and don't have to be anywhere. I like to push snow at night, it's easier to see where I've been. These early season snows are kind of fun. Early Blizzards and late spring snows, not so much. But for now, I enjoy it.

Production Knives / Re: Marble's Knife

The 120th Anniversary Ideal model made in the USA should be a good one if Bark River is making it as their knives (regardless of what some people think of the owner) are well made.  I will add however that when you get to that price point with knives you need to understand that should you want to sell it at a later date it will be difficult to get your money out of it.  If you like the style and the size and it fits the kind of work you will do with it then it is a good thing  You can buy an original Ideal model in reasonable condition for less than these new models.  I would probably go with an original which can be obtained for less than $150 in some venues.  Ebay has several.

  The one I'm looking at is from Discount Cutlery. They describe it as A2 steel. Beautiful looking knives. I think I saw someplace that these are being made by Bark River Knives for Marble's.

Tony, I'm still working out some details. I got some additional ideas from me using it at camp. When I get it more complete, I'll do a write-up and either post it to this thread, or start a new one.

Thanks Dave.

Great pictures as always Crash. This was a great camp, I had a blast. I left my phone in my car most of the time, so I didn't get many pictures. I did take a couple of my 5x8 Bike Hauling, Kayak / Canoe camping trailer. First time using the new right rear awning and tent / screen room combo. Worked out really good.





Also got a chance to test out a prototype build of a new portable solar powered battery box I'm building for the trailer and camping in general. Didn't get any pictures, but was able to test out charging a phone, a watch, powering some LED lights, etc. Even with the limited sun, the solar panel was generating more that the devices were using.
