Not so good. GJ killed the breaker to the skinning shed which killed the timer. Using the portable hot tub as a pool this coming weekend.

Got any good ideas for pools that donít require a concrete truck and forms? That bigger 10í x 3í deep trough?

Fire GJ.


I'm about to buy the yearly pool again. I don't know if the pump/timer would work anyway. Mine clogged up and needed flushed out to often, but that well water may be better than ours.

I cut the front ones with my sawzall since they were installed before the bumper was put on. I ordered new ones and put them in the opposite way to avoid having to take the bumper off.

And I thought it was just my dad's that was backwards. I replaced his and did the same when I put new ones in. I had two "mechanics" That couldnt figure it out

The rear is much easier.

My brother and I made a quick trip out this past weekend to fill feeders, work on the restroom and to do a little hunting.

Saw tons of Whitetail doe and few young bucks. Think I had 17 whitetail and 5 Axis in front of me Saturday morning. Itís really dry and they are hungry. Few pictures from the hunt.









After the morning hunt we ran to town for feed and supplies. We got to work on the restroom when we got back. We got the vanity and mirror in, but the toilet will have to wait until the next trip.





We wrapped up the work and headed back to the blinds. The whitetail almost had all my hand corn gobbled up when a young axis doe stepped out. She didnít get a pass.

It was a scorcher Saturday evening so I didn’t waist anytime with getting her gutted, skinned and hung in the walk in.









We then got down to business with some cold beer, steak, chicken wings and fried cabbage. Perfect mixture of work and play.









Until next time....

Looking good as it always does.

We set up this pool at my place and have been really enjoying it this summer. We bought a larger sand filter and pump, added a skimmer and a saltwater system to it.

We built a deck so it was easier to get in and out and so our Lab can swim in it as well, and bought a set of wedding cake stairs for the inside to get out of the pool and step onto the deck.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Intex-24-...-Set/511456217

It runs on a timer and has been no trouble for us.

Might work for you guys.
