All Knowing Angler (8/10)



  1. Looks like someone is having fun. Enjoy, if anyone deserves it, it’s you.
  2. Have fun!!! Again, a wonderful offer from the most generous guy on this board. Hope you hammer the fish down there.
  3. Tough price point to find a decent SUV that is not close to being clapped out. A decent used Caravan would be her best bet in all honesty. They are decent and are cheap to repair/maintain. A Pilot or Highlander at that price would be pretty old. Pilots need to have timing belts done so be wary on the service history. PM me if you want some ideas, I’m a Finance Manager at a Ford dealer in Burlington. Ive ran s used car lot and can help guide you through any pitfalls.
  4. Worst but most fun was a 1990 Jeep YJ Laredo I bought brand new in Sept 1989. Day after I bought it, it started surging and barely ran. Brought it in, needed the carb to be rebuilt. 3-4 sets of rear ujoints. 2 front propellor shafts, 3 sets Of front knuckle joints, a transmission (ground going into 2nd from new, they tried to blame me by saying there was water in the transmission, my response, it’s supposed to be a sealed unit, they begrudgingly replaced it), an ignition coil, several sets of ignition wires, a leaky gas filler neck, a transfer case..... I became good friends with the Service Manager. As a I was a university student working at Knob Hill Farms, he would come in and I would bring him to the butchers who would take care of him, then I’d take him to the produce cooler to get his fruits and veggies. Got rid of that thing with 120k on it. It was great in the winter and fun in the summer but what a p i t a.
  5. Stick to Lund, Alumacraft, Princecraft, Crestliner, Smokercraft, those brands are more expensive for a reason. Yamaha 4stroke on the back for bulletproof reliability and you will be happy for many years to come.
  6. Didn't do mine this year. The boat has about 5-6hrs on it this year. I checked the fluid a couple of times and it was nice and golden, no crap or cloudiness.
  7. Nice Cliff!! Have fun. Love Myrtle Beach. Nice drive too. Enjoy your Rav4, great little SUV.
  8. Beautiful Cliff. A wonderful tribute to your beloved lady.
  9. As long as you are using the correct type, grade and service designation, the brand is not that important. There are other brands that are less expensive and just as good. If you have the time, do it yearly, if not, every other year is ok. Through the combustion process, oil becomes acidic which can be hard on the bearing surfaces as well as the gaskets. Ask anyone with a German car with the 24k service intervals, by 100k, they leak oil and it is an expensive proposition to fix the leaks.
  10. Yes, the Earth will still be here after we are long gone. Our goal as a society should be to leave it a better place when we pass on. The hype with the young girl from Sweden.... I don't buy into. A little too scripted. That said, more needs to be done. Lots of junk all over the world, heck, they treat MT Everest as a dumping ground, so much so that Sherpas go up once a year to drag some garbage down.
  11. The door swings both ways. Our Admins here do a great job at keeping things civil. Keep up the good work! I know most people don't like Kevin O'Leary, I personally don't. 2 people lost their lives and 3 kids now have to grow up without a mother. We know very few facts here. The OPP have done their job and laid charges. BOTH drivers. As for lights being on or off, who knows?? Let the courts decide the outcome here.
  12. They are decent clean hotels and customer service or the lack thereof makes or breaks the business. The island is on my bucket list.
  13. Kings send props to United. Citywide is great. Kawartha is supposed to be good too. Depends on where your buddy is, he can't go wrong with any of these 3
  14. Great smallie fishing, great walleye fishing, great pike fishing, great muskie fishing.... LOTW has it all in spades. Have fun, I'm jealous, it's been 10 years since I was up there last.
