re: what handheld gps do you use in the woods/on the trail? - calcotron
Phone and Google maps, I download the satellite imagery for the area since signal sucks. Tried without the phone in the dark one time, and I legit walked in a big circle. Some areas are easy without the phone, some woods are not because I can't walk straight for more than 5 feet at a time....

re: How high did you climb? - calcotron
As low as 20 if other branches start to take away clear sight lines, as high as 35 if it works. Even when I do climb that high, the hills in my hunting areas make it where I'm level with or even below certain ground within 150 yards. I also don't measure and may suck at estimating, so could be off b...

re: Who is ready for turkey season - calcotron
We have a youth weekend up here April 8-9, gotta get the older boy excited about it. After that I hope to get out a few times in the 6 weekend season. I always hear them gobbling at me on my runs before work during the season, one of those frustrating things when I can't find them on a hunt....

re: Identifying Hickory Trees in winter - calcotron
[quote]The diagonal bark patterns are what clue me in, but typically it’s the nuts on the ground. [/quote] Can you easily tell the nuances between those and the "chevron" style ash bark? I plan to study this in the summer....

re: Summer Camp vs Pre-k - calcotron
[quote]That's all I was really getting at. It's just stressful to take him out of school. [/quote] Don't overthink it. There are many things to be learned in social situations, physical challenges, new environments that create well-roundedness. All good things that parents who focus only on academ...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - calcotron
[quote]Xero HFS[/quote] Never heard of these, just googled. Pretty minimal. Are these types of shoes potentially for anyone, or do you need to be pretty light/small? I like cushion and response these days, but maybe I'm missing something. Closest I've come are probably Saucony Freedom 1, and befo...

re: Identifying Hickory Trees in winter - calcotron
I can't do it in the winter. Up here there are 50 kinds of hickories, too. The shagbark is the only one I know I'm right about. The red oaks here, and even in LA from what I recall, are only now dropping leaves. They turned brown a long time ago, but they don't fall right away for whatever reason. ...

re: Designing a house with my wife and it’s, uhh, exhausting - calcotron
[quote]Let he have full reins bro; with the exception of your office/man cave. You will be a lot happier in the end. [/quote] This is a bad decision. What I call "white lady" taste/design ages very quickly, it's fleeting. That junk will be out of style in 2 years. Go with classic, tame, not goin...

re: Summer Camp vs Pre-k - calcotron
I may or may not have figured out what you are asking. Put him in something he will enjoy over the summer, if it fits your budget and schedule. If he learns something in the process, great. He's only a kid once. If he's destined for greatness he'll make it in spite of not sitting in some classroom f...

re: Mazda vs Toyota/Honda - calcotron
I'm debating what to do about the extra car right now. We have a 2018 Kia Sorento, it's been fine, no issues. 6 cylinder AWD, 3rd row. Functional. Oldest is getting her permit this year, license next year, I need to decide whether that's a good starter one for her to drive sometimes or swap it for s...

re: article detailing the lengths health insurance companies will go to deny coverage - calcotron
If you can't see that the systems (from drugmakers to caregivers to insurer systems) are completely broken, you just haven't looked into it at all. It needs to be blown up and started from scratch. The insane amounts of wasted money and pointless processes and roles, the inefficiency of getting anyt...

re: Summer Camp vs Pre-k - calcotron
[quote]#1- None of this makes sense. [/quote] I'm not following it either. We've gotten 4 kids past kindergarten and after reading all of chick's posts I feel like I might not know what she means by either pre-K or summer camp. Pre-K = during school year, go every day. Learn/play. Summer camp = ...

re: FBD - trashy in pink - calcotron
I don't want to make a new thread, because my question is about beer. Anyone ever do growler fills at Costco? I've seen it at the one by us. I tried to call and look up details on the website, but apparently they don't answer and don't put anything about alcohol on their website. Wondering if you...
