Tried another healthy hippieish treat today. No sugar / no added fat and only 3 ingredients.

3 overripe bananas
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1) Mash bananas
2) Add oatmeal and mix well
3) Add chocolate chips (you can substitute dried fruit, nuts, etc. for the chips as you choose).
4) Bake on parchment paper at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Killed the craving for cookies and they tasted pretty good.

I can ignore power trails, but it bothers me to no end when the CO ignores maintenance on their power trail! Confused


Especially if the cache page says something like...

Quote:
If you can't find the container, feel free to replace it with one of your own.


I mean, if a CO is gonna put out 100+ caches on one trail, he's expected to maintain them, right?

I'll repair/replace a cache as a favor to a CO if I happen to be there anyways, but otherwise it is the CO's job to do it himself.

It's a fluid filled tire which makes it extra heavy to move around. Finally got it off the tractor and onto the trailer so he can take it for repair. It appe



The things you learn! Who says this is all useless drivel? I had no idea there were tires like this!

What is the purpose of a fluid filled tire?

The extra weight increases the traction, which in turn allows the tractor to pull a heavier load. It also decreases slipping or spinning of the tires, which increases tire life. Finally, adding weight in the tires lowers the center of gravity, reducing the potential for the tractor tipping over. Did you really want to know all that?

Thanks Jim ... was wondering if it had to do with running it in sandy or boggy soil. Guess it would sink too much in boggy stuff.

This was very beneficial. It gives me a greater appreciation of all of those film cans hidden in posts with a picture of a tractor on the sign.

You'd better go buy some gas!
