    Drip edge on roof?

    We’re building a house right now. Noticed there’s no drip edge installed on the roof. It’s a shingled roof. Per the builder, “we don’t do that anymore - if water gets under it, the water will be trapped and cause problems” Seems like he’s trying to cut corners. Everything I’ve read and ever...

    East Idaho News - Secret Santa

    I thought this would be worth sharing...if you have some time, these "Secret Santa" videos on the East Idaho News youtube channel are really worth the watch. It's very uplifting and definitely can put things in perspective.

    New Mexico Ski Trip recommendations

    We're looking at doing our first family ski trip. My wife and kids have never been - it's been 16 years for me. My kids range in age from 1.5 to 17. I've been told Angel Fire is a good choice. I don't like that the tubing hill is pricey and very limited (only hour long sessions). I'm...

    How and When to take young kids elk hunting?

    I have been pondering just how to go about taking my kids (under age 10) along archery elk hunting. Being from TX, it's always a long trip regardless of what state I'm going to, and it's 7-10 days away from home (we home school btw). and as you know, elk hunting is physically demanding. I'd...

    Mathews Focus vs Flatback vs Engage

    What grip does everyone prefer? More specifically, what are your thoughts on the old focus grip? Does it actually help with torque? I have that grip on my Chill R (and flatback on Halon). I can't say it helps or not, but then again I'm quite the amateur.

    Collegiate runner spends night in tree to avoid bear

    This is interesting: I’m not a bear expert, but I have to think if the bear wanted to get her, it would have. It is interesting though that it would have followed her so far and then lingered under the...

    Anyone tried Asio clothing?

    I think maybe I saw this in a facebook ad. I haven't heard of them until then. My first thought was that I didn't care for the pattern, but reading the "about us" page, it says it's targeted to whitetail stand hunting...makes sense. Has anyone tried the Asio...

    Any Better Call Saul fans on here? (obligatory possible spoilers)

    Now that the season finale has come and gone... How many Better Call Saul fans are on here? What are your thoughts? What do you think will come of Lalo, Nacho, Kim, and Gene? Early on, I thought Kim would dump Jimmy and go on with her life as a legit lawyer. I'm now of the mind that she'll...

    We're doing a family trip to Orange Beach, AL in September (yeah, I know - this is my in-laws and i dare say it was on purpose - but I'm going straight to Wyoming the day we get back). Can anyone recommend a guide for, I guess it's considered "In-Shore" or Bay fishing? Maybe something family...
