Rolling hills rather than mountains (the mountains still have snow on top at the end of summer!).
Those photo's are from last year at the end of October (they were left on the camp computer). I have some I took with the Movie but still need to u/l them offsite and post a link....nice and green here right now.

A .308 is just a "small" 30-06 case with the same bullet.
Old folks like myself still own the Big Dog.

Deer/elk/invader can try to hide behind a 2 foot thick pine tree and a 30-06 will still kill them @ over 200+ yards.

Hide behind a cars engine block @ 100 yards and my Remington Gamemaster with AP rounds will find you.
The 30-06 was the round used in the Springfield in WWI and part of WWII as well as the .30 Browning MG.

The smaller .308 case was made so the Army could carry more ammo and is still a "heavy" rifle round.
I have seen steel jacket reloads (.308) -blast- through 1 1/2 foot thick stone walls @ 150 feet!

I will be back up north 2nd week of June and try to send photo/movies I took a few weeks ago...with everything green and lush looking.

and i thought the m1 garand was a 30-06?
Title: Re: Z's new home
Post by: ZOldDude on May 30, 2008, 08:14:20 am
The M1 was first made to use the 30-06 and later redone to use the .308 so the user could carry less weight.

The .308 is still bad ass....just not as much powder as a 30-06 which if you hit a deer @ 1/2 mile away will still -move- it a foot or two from the impact!

These Northern California wild fires are south and west of me. One whole town has been evacuated.

I have been busy cutting brush,grass,wildflowers withen 6 acres of my home for the past two days (only half done) to be ready for fire season.

For reference 1 acre is about 11 L.A. city sized homes and yards.
My new home is basically setting on 66 times more land.
I was a Officer in the FFA and two time California State prize winner decades ago when in High School.
[TKC]Vicious knows what knowledge and skills that takes.
It's time to get those "tomatoes" in high gear!
I expect $6 per LB with the price of fuel this year (Organic Market prices).

Just got back from fishing,we caught 15 rainbow and 9 broke trout.

Broke trout are in oven wrapped in bacon with tomatoes and onions.

Having a cocktail while they cook.

This lake is about 6,500-7,000 feet and only the 3 of us were there.
Looks like I taught him to fish well enough eh?

That lake above still had snow on the first day of July.
Down in the valley the reservoirs and cattle tanks all have catfish and bass.

Lots of deer and elk here also.
All those wildfires in the news have this place filled with smoke...yet the fires are 100 miles away.

this is the area where they filmed that movie, i think its called "the game" with Ice-T as prey for big game hunters, that do that for a living...i like to hide in the same cave and wait for unsuspecting tourist...i mean animals...

I have been in a few movies over the past 30+ years...won't say which (no parts that pay royalties).
All "extra" parts except one that I had my real life name in credits for martial arts consultation and choreographing.
I think it was one of the best fights on the big screen in decades,pure raw life and death combat moves...but that's just my viewpoint.

I have allot of photo's and 60 seconds movies from this and last year up here that I just need to find time to u/l to an offsite host.

I know yourself and many others could get into viewing them.
I -am- living in the Wild West!

Well winter is just around the cornner.
28F this morrning and due to snow as soon as the temps get down to 26F.
Should hit a high today of 54F.

All last week the highs were low 70's other than 3 days of lite rain that topped off at 65F.
Title: Re: Z's new home
Post by: ZOldDude on October 11, 2008, 02:15:11 am
Weather at this altitude is subject to change...2PM and outside temps are up to 36F and all of the 2" of snow that was on the ground at sun up is gone even as some snow still comes drifting down.
Glad I am not camping out up at 6K+ fishing for trout today!

Inside my well insulated home it is a nice toasty 60F and I have still not turned any of the heaters on. I have electric,LP Gas and oil heaters...took out the wood heater to make room for the oil heater.
Wish I had room for both!
Basically I control the inside temps by just closing or opening the blinds and heavy drapes on the sunny side.
Even when it was 110F outside in mid July I never turned on the cooler,yet the house never got over 80F inside.

Found this foto and thought about sending the GF to go "pick up some meat for supper"...hehehe.

It's been awhile and I told Medic and Mr. Euro on TS today I would send some video.
This one is my mailbox...1 mile away from my driveway!
At the end I point towards my home,town is 4 miles the other direction.
My front fence by the road is 1/10 of a mile long and if you drive @ 60 MPH it takes just over 6 seconds to go from one end to the other.

Video attached.

Z, sounds like a great life change.

Not that I been (assuming your up the northern part of California) but flow over on the way from LA to Calgary, during last April.  I was amazed at how quick you leave the suburbia of LA, striahgt into the mountains (which I can now appreciate the prob's LA etc have had with wildfires), with snow covered peaks, and i'm assuming desert to the east of the range = all very spectacular from the air.

Will check out the vid's and pics later on.

Would be good to see more of the US, not jsut the glamorised LA/Hollywood version of the US.

These Northern California wild fires are south and west of me. One whole town has been evacuated.

Just read the posted news link (For my interest : 35 sq mile = 22400acres / 9000 hectare) -I certainly hope the fires dont end up like they have here in Victoria (Aus) -"In early 2009, bushfires swept across Victoria, devastating 78 communities and 400, 000 hectares (1545 sq mile) of land.  It is currently thought that 173 people lost their lives during the fires. A total of 2029 homes were destroyed along with 61 businesses, 5 schools and kindergartens, 3 sporting clubs and numerous other buildings"

Well we are not even at the end of May yet and the TV says they have found over 200,000 Pot plants.
NP...just a drop in a rain storm.  :icon_laugh

No doubt it was all found on public land (National Forrest).

On another "growing note"...I have many olive,pear,plum and apple trees and the GF took down the 6 foot high wires around them all this week.
As I fully expected the massive deer population here went right to work EATING the apple trees!
Rather than set up a few wires connected to my 15 mile electric fence charger....I simply sprayed the apple trees with a mix of water and ROTTEN eggs,garlic oil.
Any doubts why the deer (and rabbits) no longer come near those apple trees?

oi m8, cause you destroyed the apples yourself.

honestly screw those small weak hotfences, stick a self resetting circuit breaker on your 210 lines and wrap them ten feet around your bushes. make it a capital offence. if you want you could stick something like a 1100 mF run cap on there and cook the meat in a split second.

(-12) degrees Celsius = 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit
Still nice and warm in your part of SE then.
It was -9F the day the storm passed and the sky fully cleared letting "the warmth" radiate off into space.
Last year it got down to -18F at my place and the record cold was in 1972 at -34F.
Record high for Dec. was in 1932 and 71F!

It killed the deer and eat bits for 3 days.

I am in a high dessert but as you can see by the photo's is is still a forest.

I buy my gas for the Honda car one time each year when it's cheep at a commercial depot and put Stable into it...over the State line to save 40 cents per gallon.

Anything that lowers my output in cash each year is a plus for me.
Because of my bad back I have not worked in 10 years.

While this would bring most people to an absolute financial collapse I have always worked and saved to prepare for such things.

I was looking at YouTube about chuck wagons.
I ran across a chuck wagon cook that is world famous and many a world competition cowboy cook winner.
Long before Studebaker made automobiles they made wagons...both built to last forever.
This cowboy cook uses a 1856 Studebaker wagon for his chuck wagon.

He also cooks up some fine eating foods.
