  1. Septic system? Safe drinking water supply, Hydro? Lots of things to consider, don't take anything forgranted.
  2. Well I might have to wait a bit, I just saw on the news that east coast boat prices (what they sell for at the dock) have sky rocketed to around $20.00/lb from $3.00 to $4.00 /lb two years ago. I am happy for the fishermen, they work hard for what they get but that's more than I am willing to spend.
  3. Lobster, lots of lobster. The whole idea is to go somewhere that I can get lobster fresh off the boat and eat until I can't anymore then repeat (perhaps a couple of times). I've dug clams in PEI and loved it but I think I might be too old to pull lobster traps so I would settle for buying them at the dock. Looking for suggestions, help an old man fill his bucket list 😊
  4. Well anyone that knows me, known I am not much for pictures but how about my cooler of vac sealed whiting fillets. There's one small bag of shrimp (cooked) that we caught when we went digging clams. It was a hoot, the shrimp were caught in a tidal pool when the tide went out and try to catch those little buggers, we must have looked like fools, boy can they ever move. Anyway one more adventure to add to the list 😊 So here is ,a picture of my cooler, about 12 bags of whitings.
  5. We ended up with a beautiful two bedroom, two bath place right at Apache Pier in Myrtle Beach. Weather has been awesome with daytime highs in the high 70s almost every day. To top it all off the bite has been the best I have ever seen. Blues, whitings, sand perch and even a few Spanish mackerel (we haven't caught any of the mackerel but we aren't fishing for those). Today was exceptional, hit the pier at 8 am, it opens at 7 but it was raining so we woosed out. You are allowed two rods per person, I got my first line out and set and it was all out action from then on. Limit on whitings is 50 per person per day, I can't tell you how many we caught, it was stupid but I ended up keeping 39 of the bigger ones which are now cleaned, soaking in salt water in the fridge and ready to vac seal tomorrow. Things here are so much less expensive, gas $3.66/ gal. Clothing, fresh fruit (whole pineapples $1.00 ea) booze, a 26 of CC, $9.00, we just bought fresh jumbo shrimp for $5.99/lb, mind you those prices are in US$ but even with the exchange..... Anyway, for as long as god grants me the ability I think this is going to be an annual trip, it's a nice break from winter and a great way to recharge the batteries 😊
  6. Perhaps a bit of wiring, I have a switch not working the way it should in my motor coach but the main job would be detailing a 30' motor home (inside only) + a RAV 4, And I might have some other work if you are interested. It would have to be done in Lindsay but I would provide room and board (free) for as long as it takes and I am quite willing to pay for all work and materials required. If this is something you would be interested in let me know.
  7. I don't need anything done right now but I think you have a great idea and could easily turn this into a very profitable business. Good luck with it 🤗
  8. That's one trip that's still on my bucket list.
  9. Wishing an old friend a very happy birthday Beans. Wishing you health and prosperity for 2022 and many more years to come.
  10. Always room for one more. Welcome
  11. Holly... the line up to get in was huge, across the parking lot, down to the next street and half a block down that one and it was the same when we left... much more than I expected and so crowded I really didn't have a chance to shop but good to see so many people out.
  12. I always try to help when and where I can but you do have to be careful. Not too long ago there was an influx of people begging outside local grocery stores. They had signs with things like " have 5 children, need food medicen, please help". It was pretty obvious they weren't locals but I saw many people donating cash. I later saw a van going around picking them up and I suspect taking them back to where ever they came from but it was an organized group. I try to donate to things like the Legion poppy fund every year all the funds go to help vetrins and their families, I usually drop into our local branch and give them a cheque and you do get a tax deductible receipt. Womens shelter, Salvation Army....
  13. I am thinking of heading down to Myrtle Beach in about two weeks to do a bit of pier fishing (about the end of March) (the whities should be running really well by then) and perhaps dig a pail or two of clams and oysters. Anyone interested? Flexable travel dates and length of stay.
