    Good afternoon Packerfan.
    Were having a pretty hot summer here but not compared to what you guys have to deal with. I feel like I acclimated to the heat pretty well this year with plenty of days upper 80's and lower 90's. Im glad to hear that your having a good summer and congrats to your wife on the promotion and raise!

    What's up jungle mates,

    Sounds like everyone is having a busy summer.

    POP rocks, glad to hear you had a good time in Texas. A camping rig sounds like something I could get behind. Kids have been back in school for about a month. The wife got promoted to supervisor, so she got a 6$ raise, woo hoo got me sugar momma, lol.

    yeH ,I am with you Newsom has got to go. Polls look pretty good for Larry Elder. Imagine the shock to the system that would be.


    @Fiddynuts I feel the need for a break on occasion, too.. I wind up bored and stir crazy after a few weeks of not growing. Bummer about not having time for boating. I am looking forward to some fall weather. Today is the first day in months that I'm not sweating at 9 am.

    hope everyone is doing well

    Greetings friends!
    Happy Tuesday. Ive been away for a bit but was still checking in regularly. I miss all of the participants here but I know how easy it is to get busy with other things. Ive been spending a lot less time in front of the computer and a lot more time out doing things the last few weeks.

    For the last 5 years I've been learning how to grow out our favorite plant. Other than a quick break for some well repairs I've kept my flower tent packed and my lights running. I enjoy spending time with my plants and tending to them for the most part. Only occasionally does it seem like a chore or do I feel like a slave to them.
    A few weeks ago I decided that the run I had going was to be my last run for a while. Im not sure for how long but I felt it was a good time for a break. We are going to be getting some work done in the house and can't risk an inspector or contractor finding my plants. My last harvest was about 3 weeks ago and I must admit its been kind of nice to not have to water and such. I miss the plants but the break is a nice thing too. Im not sure when I will be set up and running again but I'll still be checking in here on icmag and hope to continue to chat with y'all from time to time.
    Lets finish off the summer strong guys and I hope all your gardens are kicking ass!

    Greetings pop_rocks.
    Im glad you had a good trip to Texas! I have been wondering how it went and if you made it back to SD with that truck. Did you get your fill of tex-mex and Texas BBQ? Did you go on the horse ride you were thinking about? What else is fun to do in Texas?

    I gave up boating because I don't have enough free time to justify owning a boat. Not enough nice Sundays in the season to enjoy it and when I was I would have to neglect my other hobbies. Ive been really hitting the mountain biking hard this season. I rode 14 times at Alpine in July and a couple weeks ago I did my first back to back laps there. It was on!y a 16 or so mile ride but was 2 hours and 40 minutes of ass kicking climbs and exciting descents! Ive been working really hard and I may be close to getting into the best shape of my life. Ive also got my diet in a pretty good place and I'm feeling great. My disc golf game is as good as it was back in the 90's and I even got a hole in one a few weeks back. Ive been getting plenty of live music in as well and really things couldn't be much better. With summer wrapping up in a few weeks I am looking forward to some cooler fall days and even stoked that I've got snowboarding to look forward to this winter.

    I'd love to hear more about your adventures and see what that truck you got is all about!
    Ive also got an important jungle announcement to make so I might as well get to it in the next post.
    Talk soon pop_rocks.

    Smoked my first Brisket, started lastnight at 830, pulled it of at 10 this morning. It was very tasty and tender, couldn't be happier with It. Especially for my first attempt. Seasoned with salt pepper and garlic.

    Now that I quit smoking cigarettes, I can't stand the smell either. A big motivation was that I was smelling it on myself. I feel so much better now, it's been 5 months with only a few cravings. I still vape, gotta start weaning myself off of the vape soon.

    @ Fiddynuts, I hope you get to hit the lake this weekend.

    @ pop rocks, I hope you have a great trip.
    Good afternoon Packerfan.
    Good work on that brisket buddy! There might not be a wrong way to season a brisket but I like the salt and pepper best and a little garlic sure doesn't hurt things. A lot of places use rubs with a lot of chilli peppers in them and to me that takes away from the wonderful beefy flavor that goes so well with the smoke and S and P.
    I quit smoking a lot of times but the last time a few years ago I was finally ready to quit for good. I was on the nicotine gum for a while but I was able to get off that a couple years or so ago. Its been a long time since I had a craving to smoke cigs.
    The weather on Sunday was a mix of sun and clouds and it was kind of windy but we went out and made the best of it. Even though there were plenty of clouds I got a little bit of a sunburn!
    I hope you had a great weekend.

    Greetings friends.
    Happy Friday to you as well pop_rocks!
    Im looming forward to the weekend as well buddy. Im really hoping for some nice boating weather this weekend but the weather man says I shouldn't get my hopes up. There is a good chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday. If we don't get out on the boat this weekend it will have been 3 weeks since we were out for our first and only time of the year. By this time last summer we'd been out at least 4 times, its a short season and we need to get out enough times to make it worth the cost and hassle of owning a boat year around.
    To me life is absolutely about trying new things so get on that horse and see what its got in the tank. Just be careful when they trot they bounce a lot and I always felt like I was going to bounce right off its back. When they step it up I to a run they smooth out a lot I think. Get that picture and have fun doing it!
    I would certainly recommend getting some fireworks on your way home. I really missed fireworks when I lived in calli. We have plenty of fireworks stores here and its pretty amazing how many people light them off right around the 4th. Fireworks are getting pretty fancy these days and its easy to spend a lot more than you might think on some of the big ones.
    Thats great your ex and your sister get along well. You guys are going to have a great time there and you'll have plenty of time to talk about your future on the ride home!
    I love those cone tube shaped papers. Its a great shape and the small end has that insert that keeps the weed out of your mouth when you hit it. I need to order some soon as I've got some concerts coming up and I like to share a joint with my neighbors at the shows. Ive had joints with tobacco in them and they say the nicotine helps get you higher than with plain bud. Ever since I quit smoking a few years ago I am disgusted by the smell of cigarettes and would probably pass on the tobacco \weed joint these days as well.
    Have a great weekend brother and I hope you have a blast on your trip!

    hey hey my man! happy friday
    lets get the weekend on
    ive never really been into horses and growing up i kind of avioded them
    but its a chance to try something new and im sure the horse will be cool, plus i will get a pic of me on horse back!
    /rough rider style!
    we will be doing a lot of good cooking and im going to make them a couple nice meals, plus i will colaborate with my nephew and bil on meals too so we are going to eat good!
    but i want to check out some realt tx bbq
    so i was doing so looking at online maps and it turns out there are fireworks stores close to my sisters house!
    im thinking i might buy a box or two to bring abck to california! for those desert camping trips later in the year
    i used to love fireworks and the chence to pick some up sounds pretty sweet to me
    i was talking to the ex and i think i am just going to bite the bullet and pay her way out if thats what it takes
    i want her to get to spend time with my family and be like we used to and my sister and her have this friendship so it would be nice
    /sis said "...she is welcome at her house any time", when i asked
    its only a few hundred dollars for her plane ticket but worth a lot more for the memories i hope
    the machine he got is like one of those cone machines that shoot the weed into pre made tube
    ive seen them before and he sent me a video of how it works
    hes been smoking on them and says they are great for a fun puff, but he puts tobacco in his
    /like 50/50 or 25/75
    i dont smoke cigarettes but have not problem with smokers, but told him i would roll mine straight up weed
    im goign to post up a link to the shop he gets his weed from here! he sent me the name and i was looking at their menu online
    kid in a candy shop shit and i cant wait for the fun to begin
    have a great day fiddy and i hope you have an even better weekend!

    we have some fun things planned and a whole lot of nothing to do
    he even got this cigarette rolling machine that he plans on making weed cigs with and we are going to check out his pot shop spot
    man i cant wait
    im not going to try and bring any weed with me in or out just to be safe
    i saw a news story about a pro athlete getting busted recently at dfw with a grinder with cannabis residue in it and im not there to fck around
    /https://www.ksat.com/news/texas/2021/06/23/lakers-guard-alex-caruso-arrested-by-texas-am-police-for-trying-to-board-plane-with-drugs-reports-say/
    so i was talking to him about the food scene and there are a few places we might hit up
    i dont know if we are going to the dfw area, thats where a lot of those spots you see on the tv cooking shows are located
    but im sure there is a kick as joint closer to where they live
    check this out man, i am going to ride a horse too while im out there
    my sister has been into horses as far back as i can remember and she has her own horse now
    i talked to her and she said we could go out and vitit the animal while im there!
    i asked if i could sit on it and she said i have to ride the horse
    im not really into riding horses but it soulnds like a blast
    i cant wait for this weekend but im also ready for the fun next week!
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    It sounds like your going to have a great time next week. I love the anticipation when a trip is getting close. Im sure your nephew and sister are looking forward to seeing you as well! I hope you guys do everything you've got planned and more. Im sure there are a lot of great and unique things to see and do in Texas.
    I use to have one of those rolling machines back in the day. From memory it was really easy to make the joints too tight and they were almost impossible to pull through. Tobacco is a lot less dense and leafy so with bud you had to be careful to not put as much in as you'd be tempted to. Reminds me that I haven't been puffing many joints lately. Im not vary good at rolling joints and I feel like I should be after 30 years of practice. And if your nephew has a good hookup you don't need to risk bringing anything on the plane with you.
    ​​​​​​You should be able to find great Texas bbq just about everywhere in the state. As big as Texas is I'd bet there are differences in the style of bbq in different regions. Im sure you guys will find some great local eats and I look forward to hearing about them and hopefully seeing some pics when you get back!
    Riding a horse sounds like fun. I rode a few times when I was a kid up by where our cabin was. There was a stable that gave guided tours through the national forest just a few miles from the place up north. I was pretty young but I never got the feeling they liked having someone on their back. My wife hasn't been on a horse and really wants to ride someday. Maybe that would be a good anniversary present for her. Im sure your sisters horse is tame and I hope you have a great ride.
    I hope your week is finishing strong brother!

    how did the ribs turn out fiddy?
    thats so cool you and your friend have a good thing worked out
    a lot of times you can share with people and they dont really share back so it sounds like this guy is cool
    yeah im excited about trying some new foods and just hanging out with family while there
    we will have a great time and ill be sure to get some pics in addition to some great stories to share
    im excited about the truck and talked to my nephew about it th other day
    we will make a day of taking it out and getting her road ready and go from there
    the more we talked the more i wanted to do so we will see what the final price tag is, but im getting a screaming deal so i cant go wrong
    /have you seen the price of used cars/ trucks lately?
    me and the mrs are actually doing a lot better now
    one fo the things that ive done on my end i work on my drinking
    its not like i was this angry drunk, but it definitely put a wall up between us now that she dosent drink
    she dosent even care if i drink, just not all the time
    im in training right now!
    ive nbeen getting up and taking better care of myself, working out harder and eatting a lot better
    i cant wait for the adventure to begin
    Good afternoon pop_rocks.
    The ribs turned out really well! Even my wife, who says she doesn't usually like ribs, ate a few and commented that they were great.
    For sure my buddy and I have a good thing worked out with the sharing. He's definitely a good guy and appreciates fresh buds and seems to really enjoy bringing something nice to show it. We've known each other since like 7th grade and we use to work together for a few years in the early to mid 2000's. Like you mentioned there are plenty of people who would try and take advantage of free bud but he is one of the good guys. It gives me some faith in humanity to see that some of us are still cool like that.
    Im really looking forward to hearing about your adventures and all the interesting sights you see and foods you try on your trip. If I ever went to Texas at the top of my list would be to try the bbq brisket and hot link sausage they are famous for. Also texmex comes to mind when thinking about Texas.
    I hope you get her road worthy quickly and easily! When my sister in law moved from Cali to Alabama they said it took 2 days to drive across Texas so plan on plenty of drive time. Also ive heard they cops in rural Texas can be really tough on cannabis so keep a ow profile brother!
    It's great you and your lady are doing better. Life is too short for fighting and fussing. Drinking less is always good for the body and probably the mind as well. It can be tough for someone who doesn't during to be around someone who does if its all the time even if the drinker is on good behavior. Eating better and working out are always good things, especially as we get older, and wiser. Good work buddy keep it up!
