Early Bird Special
« on: September 07, 2016, 07:25:41 PM »
Greetings! Welcome! I'm making this the unofficial opening of IF247 for the 2016/2017 season. I tried to get it in gear Monday night but there was an issue creating new topics. Our forum has recently moved to a new server, the latest and greatest. But there were a couple fine points to be smoothed out. All seems to be in order as of now. If you  notice anything amiss send me a PM and I will take a look. Check in here and let.me know what you're up to.

Ditto. We have been remodeling the living area of our house. All above my skill set. But I have pitched in building a wall along a part of our deck and powerwashing and restaining another section of deck. But my big redneck engineering project has been gutting and re-purposing a 12x36 foot pool cabana into a storage shed. I have been completely enjoying myself ripping out walls and evicting the red squirrels that had taken up residence. It ain't pretty inside but looks like a nice little cottage on the outside. I'm about to add some big barn style doors to one end. Once that is done I can start moving in stuff for winter storage.

Just finished four new duck blinds for my club, the last plywood went on last evening. The club is located on a tidal river so they only last a few years and there are 12 of them so we need to stay ahead of it. I tinker with them a couple hours after work when I'm not doing something else, it took about a month. Almost forgot, I built a generator shed at the same time using the basic pattern for the blind with a solid roof. Thought we might need the generator the last few days, but Hermine fizzled and missed.

Looking forward to the new ice season.  Just finished a new 36X40 garage and am starting to fill it up.  Got a new one series John Deere 1025-R TLB to get into the landscaping around the house.  Installed a new propane fired gas furnace (replacing the original fuel oil model from 1947) with A/C.  Been nice the last few weeks in our house.  Still got some projects lined up and some healing to do before that ice, but I'll make it.  8)

Well, KP has been running and boating alot for my son as he pursues one of his passions...bass tourney angling. Along with recreational fishing. Boating and hanging with the family, fills in the rest of the weekends. Business has been great, doing alot of different projects. I'm waiting impatiently for ice season. It can't come soon enough.

Looking forward to seeing some of you guys on the ice this year. We will be trying to pull off the derby we missed out on last year.

Lastly, looking ahead to seeing pics of fish and outings from everyone on IF247.COM! The best ice site on the InterWeb! End of story!😎

Well just finished off the summer with a family camping trip to Splash Magic Campground. I installed a new roof on the homestead in August and currently working on remodeling our living room, which the wife says must be done by Thanksgiving. Looking forward for some R and R on the hardwater.
