November-December

Posted: 20th December 2017 by Cheap in Camping, Fiction, Hunting, Technology

My hunting trip was successful.  On my fifth day out there, I found a spot that was so ideal for attracting deer, it was like shooting fish in a barrel.  I took a doe, shot through the heart, leaving a Quintin Tarantino blood trail.  Next year, if I hunt that spot, I think I will […]

I read The Paladin, by C. J. Cherryh.  I generally liked it, but it certainly wasn’t her best work.  It was published in 1988, and it is 2017 now, so her idea of a love interest just came off as harassment to me.  Maybe I’m not like other guys, but when a girl repeatedly says […]

My October

While casting about for other television series to watch, I’ve been reminded that I own both seasons of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but I have only watched the first.  It has been a while, so I should probably re-watch the last couple of episodes of the first season before starting the second season.  Also, […]

In 2008, I ordered and purchased a Kimber rifle. I wanted a compact, lightweight rifle in a caliber suited to slightly smaller southern deer. I agonized over the choice between .260 Remington and 7mm-08, and I ultimately chose .260 Remington. The Kimber 84M Classic is a beautiful rifle, and with a 2-7x33mm scope, it handles […]

Exploring Android development has sparked my interest in smart watches.  I see I have a lot to learn. Until now, I have ignored the smart watch market.  This is mainly because I’ve stopped wearing a watch.  I used to wear one all the time, but I’ve noticed that they have become somewhat unfashionable.  Among the […]

Flannel bed sheets are pretty awesome in the winter, but now there are little fuzz balls everywhere. I finally got my car put back together after having replaced the broken engine valve.  I still had to have the catalytic converter replaced, which was damaged by all the unburned fuel that was dumped into it.  However, […]

Anyone who tells you that Cat’s Cradle is science-fiction is fucking with you.  Or else they don’t know what science-fiction is.  Yes, it contains a bit of science-fiction as a plot element.  Yes, the science is reasonably sound.  It also contains a made-up religion, but no one categorizes it as a religious text.  It is […]

I spent a weekend in the Mark Twain National Forest, in the Doniphan and Eleven Point ranger districts.  My primary goal was to scout for good deer hunting spots.  However, I didn’t get to explore all the places on my list, and most of those did not turn out to be good spots.  My secondary […]

Hunting in the Upper Peninsula

Several years ago, when my father retired, he moved up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan near Escanaba, where he has a house on the lake.  He quickly came to understand that hunting is very important to the area.  As my interest in hunting was budding at the time, he suggested that I should visit […]

In 2008, in preparation for my first hunting trip to Arkansas, I picked up a Kimber 84M Classic chambered in .260 Remington, and I topped it off with a Leupold 2-7x3mm scope.  I wanted something that was lightweight and not excessively powerful for the slightly smaller whitetail deer in the south, and that’s exactly what […]
