      Thanks to all who contributed, we collected just under $500.00. I sent a check Monday (8-7-2017) to his wife for $500.00 along with a card expressing Forums condolences.

  1. Our H/B cameras are based on buying an over the counter personal camera and hacking it to work with a separate controlling board.. These cameras have a different type processor that requires a high amperage at startup which is more conducive to the characteristics of rechargeable. You can use alkaline in our systems, but often times the stamina of alkaline are no where near what rechargeable are. Some commercials that use rechargeable batts will have a extra tray for them and when using alkaline they provide a dummy battery to put in it's place.
  2. An eneloop charger is just that a charger. A smart charger does lots of things to the battery. I am not sure I can tell you all it does and what sequence , but it discharges your batteries then recharges and then discharges then takes internal resistance , etc. in what order I don't know and how many times, etc. is all programmed into the unit. This whole process depending on your condition of batteries can take a couple days vs a couple hrs. with an eneloop or any other charger.
  3. Hey Paul glad to see your ok. I hear the kid thing, my 16 yr old niece told us late winter she wanted to get certified in scuba this summer. The hardest part of this whole ordeal was coming up with when she could go! It ended up being a lot of fun and it was great experience for her and her Aunt and Uncle. Hunting is coming and my nephew is 10 years old and he wants to hunt deer this year, he weighs 68 lbs and I will have to have him use a crossbow. I took him Turkey hunting in the spring and it was a good thing I had a large tent, so he could do laps inside. Wisconsin’s mentoring program is really kind of nice for these kids to get out in the woods hunting.
  4. Please see announcement about sending card/gift. Thank you in advance.
  5. Here is Chris Warden (212) Obituary http://tinyurl.com/ycnatdcs Christopher Lee Warden Christopher Lee Warden, 59, passed away peacefully in his home in La Vernia, Texas, on Monday, July 17, 2017, surrounded by his family. He was an auto mechanic, but he could repair just about anything else too. Christopher was always ready for another project and helped anyone in need. His motto was, do one thing, do it right, and then do something else. He was preceded in death by his father, Henry C. Warden. Christopher is survived by his wife of 39 years, Peggy (Stevens) Warden; mother Dorthy Warden; daughter Jennifer Racey; grandsons Zachary Poston, Kriegen Racey, and Roman Racey; brother Henry C. Warden Jr. and wife Anja; stepsisters Carolina Warden and Valeska Warden; stepbrother Adam Warden; a special aunt, Faye Cooper; and many other family members. A private family service will be held to honor his memory. We are all very thankful to have been able to have him with us for the past year since his lung cancer diagnosis, said his family. The family would like to thank Nurses In Touch Hospice in Floresville for their help.
  6. I received very sad news today and want to let everyone know about the death of a longtime member "212" Chris Warden of Hags House. Below is a partial note I received from his brother this morning. Anyone who knew Chris appreciated the help he would offer to its membership, including myself. Recent new members will find lots of very detailed posts on various builds he did and most helpful was the troubleshooting he was able to do, solving lots of problems for us along the way. R.I.P. my friend and heartfelt condolences to his wife Peggy and the entire Warden Family. Hi, this is Chris 212's little brother Chuck. Chris passed away last week. He had been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer which had already spread to his bronchial tubes. He knew the odds were slim and decided not to go through treatment. Chris and Peggy had been told he would last 2 to 4 months but he held out over à year and died at home. His wishes are to be cremated and to have his ashes buried under à pine tree at his house outside La Vernia,TX. I asked Peggy and she Said it would be ok if I informed this forum of his passing. I do feel it would be better if a regular member did that. I live in Sweden and was planning à trip here in september but came as fast as I could. Chris just got too worse too fast. Take care. Henry C Warden
  7. I bought a cheap one $40.00 clearance after xmas about 4-5 years ago, mainly to find survey stakes and I thought I would bring it along on vacation and check the beaches. It worked great for finding the survey stakes and I took it on vacation one time and was to lazy to do any beach cleaning.
  8. We are starting to accept new members using the Board settings. With the old version we had to modify this procedure, but so far this new version seems to weed out the spammers. Now that doesn't mean it can't be done, but so far in a months time it flagged and isolated thousands and approved 5. I do need your help and I believe everyone can do the following if a spammer gets in and starts spamming. 1) Click on the members Name 2) Click on "Flag as Spammer" It will immediately shutdown the spammer and hide any posts and notify me. Thanks for your help!
  9. Ok I wanted to get some time under our belt to work out any problems. I have not had any issues so far. Someone mentioned Tapatalk, I see this used all the time on other forums and wonder if this is something that would be used. Also any other things we might want to add?
  10. Needing to buy a new bow and wondering if someone is selling these yet. Mine is showing extensive wear from years of use and want a new one.
  11. Ben can you explain what you use the tinsel for.
  12. If I remember correctly you will have to take the board loose and pull it from the case with the wires connected to the batteries, so you can run the camera and adjust, you should be able to turn the lens.
  13. Make sure you don't have something close, tip of tree branch, tip of grass, that the auto focus is picking up on. Could even be edge of lens hole.
  14. Ok here it is! This should put us in the newest version with a stable format. It will take a while to get familiar with the new look. Please be patient, I am as new to this format as everyone else, so the answers maybe slow to your questions.
  15. If we are down, it will hopefully be only a short time, thanks for being patient. It will also have a new skin look to it. I am trying to salvage somehow a piece or pieces of the old look, this may not be immediate.
