    Update on our house

    My neighbors house across the corn field. My house is the white one. My neighborhood. The school. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Update on our house

    Many of you saw my post and what happened to my family in June. I thank you all for your prayers, words of encouragement. We have moved back into our house and we experienced the best in people and we know why America continues to be the best. Our house after the flood. A friend of a friend came and dug a ramp for us so that an Amish crew could clean out the basement. He didn’t charge us and we asked what we could do for his kind act. His response was. Donate to a cancer research group. Wow! Such a blessing. I didn’t get a picture of the crew that cleaned out the basement. I was working, but they did a great job. we had a couple piles of dirt and several dump truck loads removed. They worked so hard and would accept anything from us. I offered lunch, gas money, and they said they saw a need and wanted to help. Another big blessing. The day came when the block was to be laid. I was on nights so when I stopped by my house on the way home they had just started. That was at 9 am. I went over at 3:30 pm and both walls were done. they moved all the block into our basement by hand. They didn’t charge us labor! That was another huge blessing. Concrete was poured the following week and we made a lasting bond with our house. this was taken a few days after moving back home. We are grateful for so many things, even though we lost much of our memories to the flood. We know we will make many more in our years to come. Thank you all again.

    Water and guns

    I did email aimpoint just to tell them how their red dot held up. Sent the pictures of my basement and the safe. It would be cool if they sent some cool stuff, but if they don’t I will still highly recommend aimpoint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    My new ride...

    Not sure if the gladiator will get the same as a JL or if it will be totally different. When I did 35” tires on my jku I regeared to 411 from the 373. Gas mileage went from 20 to 13. But as you know, you don’t buy a Jeep for gas mileage. Personally I wish I geared to 456 just because it would help a little more since I added steel bumpers, winch and have the extra 35 on the back. At least going up hills. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Well since you’ve owned jeeps for awhile. You know what they stand for. For a lift I’d suggest Meatlcloak they are one of the best and still affordable. If you put bigger tires on then you may need to regear. To protect from door dings. Get a good set of steel side steps. Other people’s doors will hit the side step and you will protect your doors.

    That’s a good idea. Wish I was able to take a bunch of pics before and after. My hands were covered in mud and crud so I wasn’t gonna use my phone to take photos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    It says waterproof and gives a rating. The rating states 1 meter for a half hour. So basically a causal dip in the water. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I looked them up and it is 1 meter for a half hour. Now the aimpoint pro survived its time underwater just like I knew it would. I didn’t know about the coating or lack of. I purchased them because of price and what they said about the product and never thought of them being stuck in water for a week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Here is what my opinion is on what magazines I could find. this is an Hk mag after spraying it off with the hose. Wish I remembered to take pics before I sprayed them off. Magpul same deal garden hose. They both cleaned up real nice, but in my opinion for a flood magazine. I’d choose the magpul, it had less mud in the mag. The spring looked cleaner and overall it was much easier to get looking nice. The Hk had considerable more mud and took more scrubbing with a brush to clean up the inside of the mag. And the spring needed more cleaning cause of whatever lubricant they had on the spring. my sig Romeo. Definitely not waterproof. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Questions: can you tell if the water got in through the door seals, or did you have holes for bolting to the floor that were not plugged ? You know the brands of the bolts ? John The water came out through the sides of the door, so I think that either the seals didn’t last long. The bcg’s were both aim surplus brand, the other bcg I cleaned was fail zero and the nickel boron didn’t hold up any better then the aim surplus brand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Water and guns

    Some of you may have read my other post that talked about the flood I had at my house. My safe was underwater for a week and when I got it open the guns had a little rust. First let me say that aimpoint is worth the money. I have left my aimpoint on for the last year and even after a week underwater it still worked. I won’t hesitate to buy another aimpoint pro. My Sig sauer Romeo filled with water and doesn’t work. And the primary arms red dot is also dead. Lests talk bcg’s. I have owned nickel boron coated for a few years and found them to be easy to clean and I also used the nitride coated, but I liked the nickel look and had them in my favorite rifles. Here are the bcg’s fresh out of the rifles. The only things done to them was rinse and rim oil once they were removed from the safe. This is right after I hosed them off before I started to tear down and clean. The nitride coated is the way to go. I would have taken more pics but my hands were messy. Just wanted to pass along a little info. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Sorry it’s been awhile

    So my ammo got wet. Not all but some 9mm and green tip 556. I’m assuming the green tip should be ok. What are your thoughts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    My Birthday Present (Shingles)

    Sorry to hear about the shingles. My brother had them when he turned 40. He was in lots of pain and I felt bad he couldn’t take some time off work to recover. He didn’t get the meds to help with pain cause the doctor said he was to late getting to him. I pray your experience is better and can recover fast. Take lots of naps if you can.

    Thank you all for the prayers. I know I am not the only one that has experienced this and I won’t be the last. My kids were safe and they didn’t have to witness everything unfold and they seem to have adapted to our life at my parents house. It’s crowded it cozy. I’ll post some pictures of things as they happen. Mark Wills cleared a ramp for us to get the mud and junk out. And a nice group of Amish helped us clear the debris out.
