Beekeeping driven purchases.... :-)
« on: June 08, 2013, 07:15:30 PM »
Well, like any new hobby that you get involved in, it's always a little more "involved" and expensive than anticipated.  There's always overlooked equipment, either needed are simply desired, that you can only resist for so long.

Some of this optional equipment hits the pocket book a little harder than others.  

I picked up this little Beekeeping driven purchase today.   :-D
I'm probably one of the few red blooded American males who had never really had the fever or desire to own a truck....REALLY, NEVER!  Add this to the list of thing Beekeeping has changed in my life.  :laugh:

You still don't own a truck. That's a Dodge.   :evil:   :lau:

I'd buy a Dodge before Found On Road Dead with a Chevy

But if I had my choice, a Toyota probably.

I just know Dodge means....Dodge the payments until you can get it running again.   :-D

TOYOTA, made in USA.

Arkwood,
Ford, Chevy, Dodge, made in Canada and Mexico.

I buy American made, even if it carries a foreign name.  :th_thumbsupup:

I buy the best product I can for my money...Probably the most American (i.e. Supporting Capitalism) thing anyone can do.

The whole concept of capitalism is that companies who produce quality products at a competitive price, survive...The ones that don't perish.  Pretty simple actually!

There was a time when American automakers were producing crap, and knew it...People buying them, simply because they were American made, did nothing but exacerbate the problem.
Buying an inferior product, simply because it's American made, is about as unAmerican as it gets in my opinion.

3 of my last 4 trucks were rams.  i've got a 2011 now that i've already managed to put 90k on.  had a 2009 before that that i'd still have today if some idiot hadn't rear ended me at about 60mph while i was stopped (drove that truck for another month until his insurance decided it would be better to settle with me quickly since i was only asking for the assessed damage and diminished value on my truck instead of getting an attorney).  had a P.O.S. 2006 ford before that that was worn out by 60k miles, a 2001 ram before that.  it was all chevies and fords before that. they're good trucks.  they're supposed to be coming out with 1500 diesels in january.

Man can make up any excuse for buying whatever he wants and use any means he needs to justify it.
I got into remote control planes and used my son (who was 10 at the time) as a excuse to buy all the equipment you (NEED). Must have sent thousands over the years I was in the hobby.

ps My son only went to the field a few times and never took a liking to it (but I did).

AT least that is the reason you gave yourself or your better half why you needed that!  :-D As for the purchases, all I can say is it does not stop.
Seems as though I just purchased 100 frames and am needing other stuff. Had 6 strong hives beginning of the year and now running 20 and if it wasn't for removals I do on the side I would be pulling money out the family funds which would not be cool. Seems like I am adding supers on every couple weeks now over here. :) All foundationless here and need to ask CD again what is the best extractor for them as I had a memory lapse last time I asked. :? Too much going on upstairs and not enough time is all. ;)

Good going Moots, vehicles are like kind of bees, supers and foundation or not, it's what ever you like.  I have a 1993 small Toyota, still runs great.  As far as having a truck, my first vechile was a truck, and have had several since.  All Chevy's before this one.  Good luck to you and your truck.

Congrats on the truck. Looks good...

Blanc.   What you need is a non radial type extractor for foundationless.  Dadant little wonder is an example.

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

Nice truck Moots. Maybe I will catch sight of it on my way to the office one day lol.
I bought a truck for "camping" back in 2009. We only use it for camping. It has 11000 miles on it today. Most expensive piece of camping equipment ever.

Bailey, why a non radial extractor for foundationless?
