  1. Older stock would have been sold at the lower price. The cost now to replace inventory has gone up a LOT and a battery is one of the hard items to get. Because the ones that have a b and s for box supplied acid can sit a long time and not go bad as the acid isn't added till a customer want's to purchase it.
  2. Yuasa is a better brand name and you can get a a different brand. The 1st letter stands for MFG (Y)TX14-Bull (box supplied of acid) You can get a Ctx14 and it is the same thing by a company like parts Canada.
  3. dragonflies are out in Gooderham, I have a hundred or so crusing the property. Blackflies are getting less and less as the Mrs and I took the bikes into Haliburton today and came home with semi clean visors. The mosquitoes are now out in full force...
  4. So I'm not sure where this post should be on the pages but the Mrs and I just got us a camper to do a BNB. It's going to stay where it is parked on my side lot but open to weekend only rentals. We figured this would be a decent way to help anglers and bikers coming to the area to have another place to sleep vs running to the next big town looking for a hotel/motel. So if anyone is wanting to take a bike trip or fishing trip to Gooderham I now have space to rent. No pet's because we already have 2 dog's and I don't want to clean up more poop than I have to.
  5. Yeah both, so I see, read and hear are decent. I'm a Shimano fan so no other tid bits of help here.
  6. Simon lives there. Get him as a guide if you can!
  7. I wish you luck finding someone. I'm sure someone would love a trip like this. If you're ever headed out with your boat to Gooderham msg me as that where I moved to. 5 min from the lake...
  8. I hope they are good. I haven't had luck with that site or wish.
  9. Well, it took Thursday morning to pack the moving truck BUT due to a delay in getting the key's we had to advise them that we aren't going to be in on time and we weill meet them at the new property on Friday moring. We planned for this and in turn it costs us less due to travel time. Those that I have as friends here on FB watched the gong show unfold from Thursday eveing (as I got here at 4pm when we took ownership at 1pm). HOWEVER the prior owners were here still when I got here and scrambeling to pack! They were so far from prepaired to say the least! So I slept on a small pad, a sleeping bag for more padding and got up for 6:30 to ensure they came back and picked up the rotten out, broken down truck and camper. At leaset they showed... Our movers got here at 9am and the games began. Man this house is a lot smaller than the last! L0L Since, I tested positive of Friday for covid and my wife did this evening. So unpacking has been slowed. BUT we thought we were going to be screwed for milk and fresh food over the course of this move but thank God for parents! My mother who is 30 min. away asked for a shopping list and is going to get it for us and no talk door drop it for us now that we are stuck here for another 5 days for me. Worst part when it comes to a fishing report to this is that I don't have a single trout lure here to wander over to a river, creek back lack to during all this! ARRGGGHH! I do enjoy the quiet, the dark and everyting that isn't Lindsay even despite all the issues going on. Anyone want to door drop some rainbow and brookie lures to help a guy out, HA! I can NOT wait to discover the fishing and share.
  10. Me too and I look forward to hunting for them and all other items Mother Nature provides out at my new place in a week.
  11. Sounds like a good time to me, enjoy!
  12. So we went for a pre close visit today. Seen a guy launching a kayak in town at the river (I hope he got a trout if fishing). Also seen this image and I know I've seen this before. Anyone?
  13. I was stuck working to 3pm so I sadly missed it. I really did want to go as it's been a while since I've seen any of the GTANorth folks.
  14. So far so good. His is now a year to two old and happy with it. His Samsung units (yes he had more than one fail) were brutal.
  15. My father has a Mitsubishi heat pump and likes the quality and cost to run it. I am moving soon where Enbridge isn't an option I will be following this too. There are no big bullet or any propane tanks currently at my new to me place...
  16. Enjoy and safe travels my friend!
  17. The lack of parking and the huge line turned my wife and I away. We BOTH wanted to see everyone and what the vendors had but I was not willing to waste 1/2 a day in line to be pushed out for a 3PM clse time so we left after seeing the line and tring to find ANY parking for 20-30 minutes. Wish I was able to walk in and see some folk but sadly not today...
  18. Hey man, see you after we have breakfast in LIndsay at Queen's Bistro. So maybe around 10:30 / 11:00'ish.
  19. I have to reply and it's not that I don't care, because I do. But way back when I worked downtown TO with HH there was a homeless guy I took into Tim's on average 1 time a week to warm up (winter wise) and have a bite to eat and a beverage. He was over the top look wise like an addict but every day I spoke to him he was stone sober or could fake it like a pro! I wanted to ensure he was safe and warm one REALLY bad cold night that was coming I gave him the winter jacket off my back to make sure I seen him again in the next few days. He refuesed to take it and so did I to take it back. He took it in the end. I called him 'knuckles' due to his hand tattoos. He was around and safe a few days after that cold snap and still had the jacket and he made sure he opened the door for me when he seen me. I told him he doesn't owe me and doesn't need to do that, he said he sure does. That's the one thing I miss about TO, knuckles and HH (in no order for HH to be offeneded, lol ) A moment in time for those that can is and can be volumes to those that are trying or can't. I'm always watching, willing to help when and where I can and I hope there are many otheres out there who think that way too. No, I am FAR from a RICH man but as a former Queen's York Ranger, nobody is left behind.
  20. Sweet! The Mrs and I are going for breakfast then going to swing buy (get it, pun, buy vs by ;)) Is there a food donation bin this year?
  21. Not going to this BUT I am planning of going to the PTBO swap this Sunday.
  22. That looks like a nice 12 pack on ice...
  23. Very nice season so far for sure!!
