Almost a Guide

Almost a Guide (5/10)



  1. Just get 3 other guys willing to go then pick a place you like and is in your budget then throw a deposit down and you are committed!
  2. I agree.......I looked into a trip in NW Ontario and decided it was better to fly into TBay, rent a car and pick up groceries on the way. 1hr in the air vs 18'ish on the ground.
  3. Just got back from Anjigaming (AirDale) and we had a great time!! We drove straight through the day on Friday and stayed with Jenn and Martin at their lodge at Hawk Junction and after an amazing breaky at the lodge we drive to the air base at Wawa for our 9AM departure. Flight in was smooth and we were unpacked and on the water by noon. We were the first group on this lake in 2 years (it was closed for most of the pandemic) so we were excited about getting out on the lake. The boats were 14' Naden's with 8hp Merc 4 strokes and ran fine. Fishing was very good once we got a good lay of the land and by the end of the week we landed close to 200 fish with the largest pike in the 42-44" range and the largest Walleye was in the 24" range. We had a couple of fish fry's for lunch and only had rain blow through a couple of times in the week but the bugs were thick when the wind died down in the evening. The cabin has a solar array and a sat router that allowed us to get WiFi so we could text and send pics of the trip. The week went by quickly and I am already looking forward to next years trip!
  4. Please do not say teacher - LOL
  5. I still prefer my schedule.........the life of a sales engineer (no punching clocks for this guy). Get paid to golf and fish......I would add hunting as well but I just need to find a good customer that likes to hunt - LOL. Flexible schedule so LOTS of time for fishing and hunting & for the most part I can work remotely.
  6. That is not what the Lib's are referring to when they talk about a 4 day work week. While you are at it go for a 24hr shift like the fire fighters - 7 x 24hr shifts a month and your done.
  7. But you do know that working a 4 day week will reduce your pay by 20% I think a 4 way work week is a terrible idea. You think that supply chain issues are bad now imagine when factories reduce production by 20% - contractors, retailers, restaurants.
  8. 3 vehicles netted me $1,220........sad to say I think Justin is going to screw us for 10x that and I just do not know how yet
  9. Yep......as an electrician I do not like to sort through a rats nest to determine where they made a mistake. I find it MUCH easier to rip out and start from new again. That way I can use properly sized cables/wires, terminals, abrasion resistance on the bundle and labeling (yes I actually label wires) - LOL
  10. Yes I agree. The biggest issue is with people not using the proper size wire, the proper type of wire and not using the proper connectors. My personal fav is ring terminals that look like they were crimped with a pair of channel locks or a rabid beaver.
  11. I bought two new Costco 27M Marine batteries for my trolling motor Item #207220 Reserve 180A, 120Ah $169.00/each
  12. I do mine annually.......usually in the winter after deer season when I am waiting for things to thaw. I do not strip them down I just lube the basics - use Beretta gun oil.
  13. I'll probably go just to see some of my buddies that will be in the hunting section and some of the lodges that I know. Good way to kill the better part of a week day morning/early afternoon on errrrr.......sales calls in the GTA - LOL
  14. Should definitely be biodegradable........we no longer use lead shot for waterfowl eliminating non-biodegradable plastics should be next on the list.
  15. Said the guy that watched it on TV and read the newspapers. I WAS THERE........just because you do not agree with them do not discredit them. I do not agree with 3/4 of what they stand for but seeing what I witnessed and watching what was reported on the news were polar opposites. Just because you want to believe it and feel that it could be true does not make it the truth. These are great stories, unfortunately not facts. Do not believe everything you read The restaurants were open to take out - I know this as a FACT because I ordered take out on Friday night and again on Sat night (once on Rideau Street and Dalhousie and one in the Byward market). I wore a mask in the mall, in stores, at the LCBO and when required and nothing was said to me or my family. This was over the weekend so I do not understand about the daycare thing. I was 1 block away from Rideau Street (Cumberland and Besserer) and slept with the window cracked open a tad because it was hot and the noise died down after 11 - and I was about the closest condo there was to the rally.
