desertbikes: Naw. It wasn't as good as the heavy snow 2 years ago & there's pics of that around here somewhere. I see AZ made national weather news cuz it snowed in winter :D Camera crews all over Flagstaff which gets about 14 feet every year. Jan 27, 2021 5:38:52 GMT -7
lurker: get any pix? Jan 26, 2021 18:23:20 GMT -7
desertbikes: There was snow on the mountains a few miles away. Lots on the mountains north & west of Phoenix too. A rare & beautiful sight. Snow on the saguaros seems such a juxtaposition of what we normally see 99.999999% of the time 8-) Jan 26, 2021 18:04:04 GMT -7
lurker: i used to do just about everything on my cars, last couple of years i just pay people to do it. Jan 24, 2021 13:47:13 GMT -7
tomcat65: So, I changed the oil in 2 vehicles Friday. My truck seems to appreciate it. Almost ashamed to admit, that I have started using my cordless impact driver to remove and set the oil plug- Carefully.. It is much faster. I used to curse people who did this. Jan 24, 2021 10:11:37 GMT -7
lurker: technology is good when it works. Jan 23, 2021 5:22:04 GMT -7
tomcat65: Sounds like my online Dr dates.. Jan 22, 2021 18:30:57 GMT -7
desertbikes: The software didn't work as planned - no surprise. I had to turn off most camera, mic & browser security & whitelist the site in firewall. Doc is 30 something female so let her know it was my first online date. Jan 21, 2021 7:23:56 GMT -7
lurker: what gf said, but no pics, thankyouverymuch. Jan 20, 2021 19:19:43 GMT -7
gonefishin: i wanna hear how that goes :D Jan 20, 2021 19:01:14 GMT -7
lurker: is he going to tell you where to stuff the camera, or are you going to tell him? Jan 20, 2021 16:00:04 GMT -7
desertbikes: Having my first video doc appointment shortly. I'm planning on quoting Lincoln a lot. 8-) Jan 20, 2021 13:32:56 GMT -7
desertbikes: Perfect day for BLM shooting yesterday. In fact, it's also Sonoran Desert Monument land. Didn't see any illegals or smugglers. Or rangers or sheriff's dept either. Broke in a T/C Strike & tried a CVA Bobcat converted to a blanklock system. Jan 19, 2021 8:43:56 GMT -7
gonefishin: really tho every year aint the the same. Always has been been different since i was a kid. Like it seems we the only ones that see that ::) Jan 18, 2021 20:31:24 GMT -7
lurker: "it's a dry heat" you say. we say "it's a damp cold" Jan 18, 2021 6:46:40 GMT -7
desertbikes: Eh, it's still winter, You're allowed to be lazy for another month or so ;) Jan 18, 2021 5:45:54 GMT -7
lurker: weather here not so nice. but you're right, i need to get a life. really feeling it today for some reason. Jan 17, 2021 20:03:55 GMT -7 *
desertbikes: Back to the grindstone. Setting up a .25 cal Benjamin Armada. That one is right up your alley as I recall. Jan 17, 2021 13:39:56 GMT -7
desertbikes: It's in the low 70s here :D Just did about 100 rounds with air rifles. .357 Bulldog, .177 Marauder & Hatsan AT44 .25 cal. Good fun! Jan 17, 2021 13:37:50 GMT -7
desertbikes: Hey, Lurker! What are you doing indoors on such nice day? Jan 17, 2021 13:34:32 GMT -7
