    Clearing an engine code - federal offense?

    Whether or not there is an actual law on the books is of no consequence as an unenforceable law is the same as no law...

    Ohio Grouse Season Change

    Yep. I know I do. Actually on the top of my list of places to retire (assuming there's still grouse there by then)

    Ohio Grouse Season Change

    John, this was true even back in the early '70's. Michigan coverts are not that far as to discourage travel and there is no comparison in grouse numbers, then and now. SE OH is tough cover by comparison as everything seems to be up hill.

    Get an OBDII scanner and clear the codes yourself. Dead easy.

    Clearing an engine code - federal offense?

    Scans are free at a lot of auto parts stores. $20 is a rip off and I wouldn't patronize a place that charged $20 for something that took less than 5 minutes and didn't involve any parts or real labor. I have heard that some folks won't clear codes or certain codes due to safety/liability issues.

    Clearing an engine code - federal offense?

    On a side note I've always gone to a parts store like AutoZone were they'll read the codes for free.

    Clearing an engine code - federal offense?

    I have a scanner and have cleared codes on my GM trucks forever. Go to Amazon and search for OBD II scanners. There's a million of them. If its a Fed Law, its been a fun run fellas but Im headed to the gray bar hotel soon!

  12. My 2012 F150 had its first issue yesterday. Was on a 4 lane highway when someone who wanted to merge did not look in their blind spot and was merging no matter what. No big deal, I stepped on the gas to accelerate in front of him and I heard a misfire in my 3.5 liter ecoboost. Did a bit of research and found out these motor wear out the spark plugs faster than NA motors. Stopped by my local mechanic to verify my thinking and sure enough, had a misfire. He said just need to replace the spark plugs. I asked him to clear to code, which he said he can't unless the work is done, federal law. Anyone hear of this before or is he just trying to make him do the work vs me? FWIW, I paid him $20 to do the scan, which I thought was fair. Thoughts?

    Hot wheels collecting?

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I used to be an insurance agent. I wrote a Personal Articles Policy for a Mattel executive who had every first edition Hot Wheels car in their unopened packages. He had a room dedicated to his collection. It was impressive. My thought at the time, that's a lot of dusting! I also really loved Chip Foose's Deora II build.

    Ohio Grouse Season Change

    A few more thoughts… Tom / Brad, I had a similar phone discussion with another Ohio hunter the other night. We also wondered where any support will come from if the few remaining grouse hunters are run off. I don’t believe hunting license $$ generated specifically from grouse hunters have any significant impact here, but do think those hunters may be the most vocal advocate for grouse. Our cooperator survey participant numbers continue to fall (only 20 or so last season). Wonder what that number will be in a year or two? Cooter, that almost sounds like the definition of something. Course some probably think I have that affliction too since I continue to chase birds here… Millriver, I can’t speak to the drumming data accuracy, but believe the past thinking has been that to change the drum routes or listening locations would introduce a variable that compromises the long term data. That said, our Biologist is looking at changes to that process, likely at least in part because of the habitat and bird location changes you noted. We know what the data shows and its time (actually past time) to start over in an attempt to better understand what's happening today. I do think the flush rate data is pretty accurate, as my numbers mirror the trend. Another factor is that with so few participants, a couple guys that get into a few more birds can skew the flush rate average significantly. Our Biologist knows that is occurring. He's a good guy that unfortunately inherited a big problem. He has some good ideas and would like to use some new technology to better understand what is going on...wish we had him years ago. Hi CheckCord, nice to meet you…you’ve met one now 🙂. I agree there won’t be enough push back to stop approval of this proposal. Not sure if you filled out the grouse hunter survey our DNR did last year, but it was pretty evident based on the questions asked that they were gauging hunter support for this change. Erik, I've had that same thought on the tag concept…if our DNR can manage it for deer, surely they can do it for a few grouse hunters. I’d be all in for that if it would extend the season length. I appreciate everyone’s comments… Roger

    Hot wheels collecting?

    Me and my brothers had slot cars. Not sure what they were called. This would have been in the mid to late 60’s. We had a track set up on top of a ping pong table in basement. They were controlled by a hand held thingy. Lots of fun.

    Not to totally derail the topic, but did anyone have AFX slot cars as a kid? My father build my little brother and I crazy big track when we were kids and we spend so much time racing it was great. Then we got an Atari and spent all our time playing Asteroids and Pac-Man instead. I've looked for the cars we used to have on eBay once in a while but haven't found them yet.

    Good, but the yolks are overdone. Yolks need to be between soft and medium. .

    OFFICIAL THREAD FOR UJ PIPE SMOKERS!

    Tin art has sold many ounces of tinned tobacco. So-called "tin note", has sold many ounces of bulk tobacco. "Room note" has attracted many to try pipe smoking, and also has likely been responsible for many a burnt tongues.

    I remember bending the Hot Wheels wheels inward to gain speed on those plastic tracks.

    Remington 760 fans.

    I don't have a 760 but do have my grandpa's 141 Gamemaster .35 cal. This model was the predecessor to the 760. I have never shot it. He shot his last buck with this rifle during the 1957 Michigan deer season. He died in 1958. I am very fortunate to have this rifle as I am one of thirty two grandchildren.

    I meant limb tipping. I’ll edit that post.

    You might consider trading in your truck for a pick up like the one in the middle. Trade in your homeless outfit for black. That buggy pick up could be customized quite easily, dog boxes, gun racks, grain bins for off road hunting. Would be a long trip to Montana though. A wider wheel for that western gumbo would be advised.
