    I think I know now why I like camping. If I stay home I am constantly working my arse off doing something. If I leave for a few days I can finally rest.

    At my age, I hate camping mostly because of the set up time and the packing up time involved. I like 'camping out' in a hotel room; leaves me more time for fishin' and watching the scenery on the beach!

    Last time I was in the FL panhandle a few years ago I was out on the beach after dark catching bait. Sand crabs come out at night in that area. I was out there chasing sand crabs with a net in one hand and a 5 gallon bucket in the other hand. Some idiot saw me and called the cops! Cops came down to where I was at, checked out what I was doing, had a good laugh, and left.....................after noting the kind of net I was using, and the LED light on my ball cap! :smiley:

    Oh, now if we talking the beach no I'm not camping. I'm getting a condo and just sitting on the beach checking out the scenery. Mom, dad, brothers, nieces, nephews, kids, grandkids all going to the beach this year. I can't and I'm the one that loves it the most. :(

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Tell me about it.

    After working for 23 years in a building that was literally on a beach, working on the water and around boats and ships, and having grown up 4 miles away from the beach - actually the same one - the sea has zero attraction for me. I don't despise it or anything, I'm just "done" with it.

    My wife OTOH, grew up near Chicago - so she's fascinated with it.

    Oh the beach would be great.............. If you got rid of the people. Only females 7's to 10's allowed.

    I don't mind people, what I do mind is people's NOISE.

    No less than three ghetto blasters playing within earshot when I was at the beach just yesterday. The closest one was actually playing decent enough music, but I don't want to hear ANYBODY'S music or other NOISE.

    For me, it depends on the beach. The FL Panhandle has some GREAT sugar sand beaches, and during the M-F time frame they don't have the level of Anus Chapeaus that show up on the weekends. And I won't be there during any freakin' holidays, either. I'll either be out in my Gheenoe fishin' or on the beach surf fishin'. Neither one are done around people on a 'public beach'. I do like chillaxin' in the beach hotel room sitting out on the balcony watching the 'scenery' stroll by. :smiley:

    I can see it if you're fishin' - but otherwise one beach is pretty much the same as the next.

    I've only ever found one beach I really liked.  It was in Germany on the North Sea.  Grass grew all the way down to the high tide water line, and there was no sand.

    I've seen pix of "beaches" like that - was it near Peenemünde?

    Rugged coastline, such as Big Sur and much of the west coast (and parts of Greece I've seen) is another matter entirely. I love it!

    That holiday scenery is 99% jail bait. I'll take the cougars stalking the beach! :D

    It's very hard to keep direct observation of one's child on a crowded beach. Sometimes its a trying time.

    No, Wilhelmshaven.  Peenemünde is on the Baltic Sea.

    Started on the kitchen project today. First up, an extension of an existing soffit. Of course, there's no studs where I need them - but a soffit doesn't have to be particularly strong.

    When stationed in Bremerhaven, i think i went to that beach. Freezing cold water and hard, sharp, pointy rocks on the beach. I will take any Florida beach over that

    You went to the wrong beach then if you wanted to go in the water.  The grassy beach is where we went for picnics.  There is a huge sandy beach a ways west of the tanker pier that even has an Imbuß in the middle of it.  BTW, the beach west of the Imbuß is FKK only.  I should also mention that the water there is only warm to a depth of about two feet at most in the middle of the summer.  After all it is the North Sea...

    1st soffit framing complete. It was, of course, a minor PITA to do. Wood where I didn't expect it, no wood where I needed it, NOTHING square, etc, etc. One of those "eyeball it and hope" kind of projects, 'cause it sure wouldn't look right if it were square! Sheetrock goes on next, may wait a day or so - I'd like to sneak off to the range!

    Everything that I’ve added or repaired in our house has been that way. The previous owner was a do it yourself hack and I’m OCD. It’s difficult to put up a square wall against someone else’s crooked wall/foundation.
