  1. To clear things up, the stile is the vertical piece. Rails are the horizontal pieces. In either case get the solid core composite door. They don’t have the problems that solid wood doors have. If you are after a stained or natural look the solid wood is your only option. As stated make sure that you paint all edges and ends. Lots of people don’t and that’s when they run into problems with swelling.
  2. I’d be more concerned by the use by date.
  3. My dear Aunt would tell me “It just as easy to fall in love with a rich woman.” I always responded true, but they are harder to find.
  4. Do what you love and it won’t feel like work. Learn to live on what you earn and keep your debt down. If you don’t like your work move on. I was a teacher and they don’t make good money. Most work more than one job to make ends meet. I was going to suggest looking into being a sales rep for a tackle co., or an outdoor sports supplier but then again you are working for corporate America. I’d look for employment in a field that gives good benefits, a decent salary, and a time frame that fits your lifestyle.
  5. I’m not superstitious, but my wife brought a banana on a flats boat in the Keys, and the guide lost his graphite push pole. Today we went clamming and a kayaker that I was talking to lost his paddle. During our lunch break she pulls out a bag of sliced bananas.
  6. I find that grilled lobster takes on a calcium taste. Is it just me?
  7. Play nice. They already recognized you from the night before. Even if they are wrong they can make your outing a pain in a$$. There are plenty of other places in the area to fish.
  8. You may be inadvertently hitting the bail. Slow things down and analyze your cast
  9. Try doing what the AutoBody guys do, use a plunger and pull it out. A little heat won’t hurt, but be careful.
  10. I bought a pair of Cabella’s waders about 18 years ago. The first pair leaked after 4 or 5 years and they replaced them free of charge. I’m still using the second pair without any problems. I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy a new pair until those wore out. The only hint to a possible problem is that the suspenders have lost most of their elasticity. Last year Cabella’s had a sale and I picked up another pair as back up. They probably won’t last as long.
  11. I’ve had both. Three Tacoma’s and one Frontier. Dollar for dollar the Frontier is a better deal, but the Tacoma , which is more expensive is a better truck.
  12. If you are fishing every day and catching legal fish every day, you must be a pretty good fisherman. So why freeze them? Go out on the days you feel like eating fish and have them fresh.
  13. I understand that a lot of guys mount a backing onto the arbor before the braid to help prevent the braid from slipping. Is it necessary, and if so what pound test and how many wraps? Thanks
