Re: expired propane tanks

Gotcha.
I do the same thing at the cottage - decant new into expired tanks. The new ones are a PITA- can't get all the liquid out.

Re: Propane Tank Question: 100L vs 20L

Check the fitting on what you want to attach. It may already have the older, male fitting inside the other one.

That's just the old style propane fitting, left hand thread.

Re: Surviving without air conditioning

A few years ago this super wicking fabric was developed. Keeps you much cooler in the heat. They didn't make clothes from it, they licensed the tech to other companies to make clothes so it goes by a lot of different names. Here are a few places I've found so far.

Re: Storebought beans as seeds

I planted from an old bag of black-eyed peas (cowpea) as a bit of a N-fixer cover crop . Even in the crazy no-rain summer we're struggling with they seem to be growing OK on the hugel bed.

Re: Dried & Dehydrated Meals for One

I opened a #10 can of FD peaches last fall and I've sort of been nibbling at them since. With the humid weather the last few months I see they're becoming leathery rather than crispy. Still taste fine after 8 months opened- just like peaches.

Re: Dried & Dehydrated Meals for One

Most of this stuff is just rice and sauce, pasta and sauce or potatoes and sauce. Rice and pasta are already foolishly easy to store. It's meat and veggies you're short of. Sauce mixes are cheap and easy to find at the grocery store. I do a lot of Mountain House in #10 cans, like beef stew and veggi...

Re: Looking for Replica Rifles - Need Help

Replica of exactly what firearm?
Probably an airsoft rifle would be the least expensive.
