I don't mean to over state the 3 job thing. It's not that big a deal. 5 days a week at job 1 the other 2 at job 2. And job 3 is as needed and fits in when ever I can be there. Still 7 days a week and the hours change weekly. Hard to make plans.

Yeah on things getting quiet here and elsewhere forums. I check here every day to see what's going on.

Things have been really busy here at home. My wife had another heart attack and my mother passed away the day after I got my wife home from the hospital. We buried Mom yesterday, so things here have been crazy. Wife is doing fine.

In September I shot 20 squirrels using my .17 WSM but haven't been hunting since. Tomorrow is shaping up for a hunt.

I think it's largely a Facebook thing. I work 3 jobs and do not have the time for hunting, a situation I am always hoping will change in the near future.
Forums in general do seem to be dying a slow death. Two of my outdoor sites appear to have closed shop in the last couple of weeks. A few sites I visit are going gang busters, but very few.
I'm not a huge fan of Facebook nor it's groups. I do spend quite a bit of time there because these days it's my best way to keep tabs on friends and family.
Gutpiles does have a Facebook page, but as yet it receives little attention.

Is every one on Thanks Giving / Christmas Brake ?
Not a word for a LOOONNNGGG time, what's up?
The old gut pile is almost all dried up, hate to see that.
Maybe it's a personal think but most ALL the hunting sights I'm on are slowly strangling
and are near death I fear.
Do you think it's an economy thing and every one has 2 or 3 jobs and no time to get out and then wright about it, or maybe a "Facebook" thing...
 I just hate to see it .

  O0 I think your long living batteries prove it is a wise investment, D. If not for the tenders, your batteries would have given up their ghosts long ago.

Ever wonder???
Up here in the cold plains of Montana, your car can need some help.

The early , dark cold mornings can be rough on a car's motor and starting system. Often times I don't run the car/ truck to get it all warm and charged back up, sooner or later you can run out of battery. I don't put either in a garage, a car port is as good as it gets. I DO plug in the "tank" , frost plug , heater in as soon as I park it for the night. I have a battery Blanket on the car that plugs in with the heater. You think a Battery tender would be  cheep insurance?

I have a tender on both boats that stay plugged in  all year when not in use. The "big " boat has 4 batteries  that stay in all year, 3 Optima that are for trolling and are 18 years old. The BOAT battery is a glass mat used for starting and is 5 years old, I think the tender is the reason . But on a car/truck I would tie it in to the same plug as the heater And it would rum all night every winter night.

I can get two 1.5 amp. tenders on Amazon for $34 bucks ,free freight, one for each vehicle. Think it is worth the effort ?
