re: Power outage in Ascension Parish - Yammie250F
[quote]I read where DEMCO and Entergy are in a fight over who pays to move power lines, but I don't remember where those lines were located. [/quote] I've also heard this is the reason why the road work on HWY 930 between HWY 42 and Airline is delayed. They can't start the widening until the ut...

re: Views from the flight deck - some cool pics - Yammie250F
Kind of off topic but with pilots in this thread I thought I would ask. I've heard the FAA is looking at changing/loosening the weight requirements for GA that would make your typical cessna 152/172 considered light sport aircraft. I've always wanted to fly recreational but can't because I can't g...

re: Any experience with a Suzuki KingQuad 400? - Yammie250F
I have a 2014 Kingquad 500 with over 1k hours on it with no problems. Half ridden to and from stand with the other half being teenagers goofing off on it. I love the power steering and the fuel injection is very nice especially on really cold mornings. Just cranks right up, no choking etc. Suspe...

re: Battle of Peleliu - Yammie250F
My PaPa was a seabee on Peleliu. He (now me) has a KBar he found in a landing ship. A buddy of his took some plexiglass from a downed zero cockpit cover and made a bad arse handle from it on the knife. He said while they were reconstructing the runway they could hear the Marines fighting off in th...

What is the best way to edge around a small pond? - Yammie250F
I'm about to close on a house and it has a roughly 1/2 acre pond. I'm worried if I use a weedeater around it all the weeds will just fall into the pond and that could cause problems later and I obviously don't want to use round up. I thought I might be able to get in a small boat and spray towards...

re: Rifle for 13 & 11 year old - Update page 5 - Yammie250F
How far will they be shooting? Mine use an old Marlin 30-30 that has worked wonders but they're a little younger than yours. Its compact and has little recoil. Like others have said, a .308, 7mm-08 or .270 should be fine for them....

re: Any pilots on here? - Yammie250F
Anyone here just have the recreational license? Its half the cost and you don't need a medical certificate. You can only fly a two seater, can't fly cross country or at night and other restrictions but seems like a good deal for someone who just wants to fly a couple hours on a weekend. I've al...
