We can't even find one in the top 4. What makes you think we can find one later?

This front office would screw up the #1 overall selection.

#3297108 Carowinds Transformed

Posted by Towelboy on 24 March 2015 - 09:45 AM

Went to Cedar Park a few years ago, doubt I'll ever go back to Carowinds unless it's free.


now that cedar fair owns carowinds, they are starting to step up their game and spend money on some good coasters (intimidator, carolina cobra, and fury 325).

#3289664 Greg Hardy to the Cowboys

Minimum base salary eh? They must be giving him bonuses for showing up to practice, putting his helmet on, etc.


bonuses available for not wrecking his motorcycle, not taking a picture of his speedometer while going over 100 mph, and not allegedly throwing his girlfriend on a futon of guns and threatening to kill her. you know, the normal fine print in a contract.

#3278997 Greg Hardy not getting a warm reception ....

I have as much credibility as BR. That being said, the Bengals picked up Hardy in my Madden 15 season. That, my friends, is hard hitting news.

#3272911 Kayak Fishing.....

Posted by Towelboy on 10 March 2015 - 07:24 AM

Ever do any cat fishing down there? 



Catch some nice blues up here. Use vienna sausages for bait. 


i haven't fished for cats, but i know they are in there. 


According to the travel section of USA Today:

Bass fishing -- particularly largemouth bass fishing -- is one of the Catawba River's main attractions. Smallmouth bass are available farther upstream in the river's headwaters, but the section near Rock Hill, where the sluggish and often muddy water supports thriving aquatic vegetation, offers perfect largemouth habitat. Deep holes in the river also harbor massive flathead and channel catfish, and panfish anglers in search of table fare will find bluegill, bream, redbreast sunfish and crappie.

#3271693 Kayak Fishing.....

No not yet, may make my way down there this year. 


So far mountain island lake is my favorite place locally for fishing. 


Love kayaking in salt water. You stay higher up in the water because of the density, makes things easier. Plan on some of that this year too. 


if you want to fish down towards rock hill, let me know. i plan to be out there quite a bit this spring and summer.

what college are you interested in? why not call their admissions office and ask what they look for in applicants?

I bet she parks in the fire lane or no parking spot in front of the grocery store for a "quick " trip.
We don't think enough of the other guy and good dudes like us need to keep setting the tone and calling it out.
I went up to a guy parked in the fire lane once with my wife's biz card. He rolls down his window and I go sorry to bug you but my wife is an English tutor. He goes huh and gives me this loom and I point at the no parking his tires were on. Priceless look on his face. I don't mind mixing it up.


I tell my wife that firetrucks must be getting smaller and smaller these days. Amazing how they look like normal cars nowadays. 


For once I'd like to see a firetruck pull in to that lane and push the cars out of the way - kinda like a snowplow.

#3215448 Need new camera

Posted by Towelboy on 21 January 2015 - 08:12 AM

canon has a 50mm 1.8 for around $100. I use it for all kinds of things but it's perfect for family stuff, portraits and poo. It's their cheapest lens, and you can tell in the build, but the picture quality is great. The option of opening up to 1.8 gives you perfect depth of field for that stuff.

get a decent DSLR body and you'll be able to use it forever and buy different lenses for everything you need. Take some time to read about how DLSRs and lenses work and you'll be glad you have one. You might end up using it for other things.

A 60d body is like $400.


the nifty fifty lens is great, but it helps to have a quality external flash to go with it. i use my cheapo 50mm ($75 used) for all portraits on my canon 40d ($300 used) but use a canon speedlite 430exII ($300 new). makes for great, clear images. it can be a bit bulky, but the quality is terrific.
