In my DIY home improvement journey which I recently started I have learned one valuable lesson. It is best to learn about your home and what are the details concerning things you may want upgraded or fixed, and seeing if you can do it yourself if possible. Might save your hundreds or even thousands in labor. No point in paying 1 or 2 people anywhere from $100 to even several hundred dollars an hour in labor to remove and install $1000 bucks worth of material.
Redoing the attic insulation and so far I have learned 3 things so far in the project. In older homes like mine there was pretty much no insulation when they were built, the people who sold it years ago had fiberglass blown in the attic, and that is the most worthless fucking insulation job I have ever seen might as well not even have insulated the attic it’s such as shit job. And lastly why would anyone want to use blown in fiberglass insulation, that shit is fucking terrible for everything, your lungs, skin, clothes and is not a good well rounded insulator for a home anyway!
Distance- 6.29 miles
All in boots and cammies with 51 pound ruck, well 54ish at the start. I figure not bad for a none combat Rate/MOS Navy Reservist, guess training and being down range working with the Army rubbed off on me.
Really liking MitiS and the Dubstep, makes you just wanna go and live free.
New Year’s Day Ride 2009,
Happy I was able to find the original version of this online at another site I had uploaded at one time, so I then downloaded then re-uploaded a original version back to my youtube since copyright stuff forced me to change the music a few years back. But now it’s kick ass once again with some U2 for some tunes.
Oh and this was shot with a bullet camera up in then decending from the Sierra Nevada mountains when I was stationed in California.
Glock 19 Gen 4 Review and also a comparison to a Sig Pro 2022 9mm.
I’ve always wanted to go out in the rain, and I don’t mean light rain I mean piss pouring monsoon type shit and take photo’s. Problem is that’s going to ruin my 60D. One day I’ll do it, when I can figure out how to not ruin a camera I spent $1500 bucks on.
Managed to pick up this nice firearm this evening, last blue label Glock 19 Gen 4 the store had. Not bad for $444.25 out the door. Initial thoughts the Glock 19 feels so much better in my hands than my Sig Pro 2022 (also my wife likes the Glock 19 feel much better also), I like the trigger on my Sig better but I hate that the travel distance, it’s more than my Glock’s to the point to where my index finger is almost pulled back 90 degree’s from being straight. I also like how Glock angles the mag well to take the mags and reduce a snagging the mag when you insert. But I’ll give my impressions on it more once I get some rounds through it.
The thought of replacing my Sig Pro in 9mm with a 1911 such as this Remington in .45acp to accompany my Glock 21SF which is also in .45 auto is well a very good thought. I don’t know what it is with me and handguns, it’s like buying a rifle really doesn’t cross my mind that much. I’m considering ditching 9mm all together in just going .45 auto all the way. I just like .45 auto better it’s just a smooth round when it goes off recoil is easier to manage imo than 9mm. That and when a .45 auto round is about twice the size of 9mm well can’t argue kinetic energy there. I also have noticed that I love a full size gun and getting into compact or smaller I start to dislike the gun as it just feels too small, and I’m not a big dude by no means but I like the surface area for my hands to hold the gun. Downside is the price difference in ammo as .45 is almost twice the price of 9mm for the same amount, but it’s how it is. But at the end of the day anyone whose American and likes their firearms I mean who wouldn’t want to own the Gov’t model, 102 years of kicking ass and taking names.
I often wonder why we are divided here in America especially over things like race, why do we use that as a reason to stay divided. I guess I ask myself this because in Afghanistan just being an American is the minority and there are a lot of people there who want to kill you any way possible just because of that. The sex or skin color of someone is never a issue, the only thing that matters is we’re all Americans and we all got each other. And that is something I truly do love about the military, is that people from all walks of life, all colors, male/female all can come together in one place and just get it done together, in a otherwise situation it would never happen.
Been a bit since I was last rucking up for exercise, until last evening. 3 miles with 50 pound pack in boots 41 minutes. Kept it under a 15 minute mile, I’m happy with the pace I did at 13.6 minute mile. Next is adding a mile each week till I get to 6 miles then work up to 12 from there. Maybe I’ll start rucking up 10K’s eventually since I’m not a big fan of running. But first thing is fist need a large molle II OCP ruck since my bug out bag doesn’t handle the weight as well since my straps just can’t stay secured for more than 30 seconds before I have to readjust.
