Friday I went to our hunting property at Bayard, Nebraska. Total cost of the trip for just gas was $236.00. Really looking forward to spending this much every weekend during hunting season. Add $110 a night for a room and $60 for food every day.........Going to have to hit a couple of bets to afford this.

I think you need to get some camping equipment, and find some small game to kill and eat to offset the cost of gas. Rabbit stew and beans were good enough for settlers, why are you so spoiled?

If I choose to go to the 64 Steel Grill, then $60 will get me a drink and an appetizer....

The bone in Rib Eye will be $50....

I only eat like that after a good day at the track or hitting a nice sports parlay bet, or completing a job for a customer with a good hourly rate.

Bad day betting or working and it is the dollar menu at McDonalds.

Finish way down, eat at The Clown.

Anymore, it's mighty expensive to eat at McDonalds. The large Double Quarter Pounder Combo, plus 10.5% Chicago sales tax, is now $12.19! And to pay by Credit/Debit Card, I have to order at the kiosk.

What makes sense is to buy an existing house or a lot close to the property. There are two very interesting properties there. One is a 4 bedroom house that is unoccupied right now that is 2.5 miles from the property. The other is a lot that has a house on it that is probably unliveable, but is only 1 mile from the property. I would prefer the lot. Build a house that has a deck facing the river, and then when we sell our property will have a much better value. This is what the view from the deck would be.

It would depend on what unliveable means. It could be cool as a hunting camp and a project. It depends on how much time you have on your hands.
Construction lumber and supplies have come down to about 50% of peak, I think they will eventually go down to where they came from. I am doing a slow home remodel, more like a rebuild. The place was just poorly built, they even recycled termite eaten wood for interior wall studs. I knew that because there was no evidence the termites did their dining here. There were electrical wiring junction boxes with branding on them from a company that ceased to exist in the 50's, the house was built in 1981.


The property was bought for the shop I run my machine shop business from and the 10 heavily wooded acres.


Lots of hunting and target shooting going on around me. This area is very heavily wooded, so a stray shot isn't going very far. My liberal city living girlfriend asks me how I can be totally unbothered by the gunfire. A guy probably 1/2 mile or so away must have a Springfield model 1861 or
similar, that was a .58 cal muzzle loader. You can tell by the loud noise and
a shot every 20-30 seconds. I told her they don't shoot at people here.
The only time he bugs me is the rare time I am talking outside on the cell phone to a customer.

Hearing reports of $5 a gallon in places like Kentucky.

I thought it would be a good time for a new poll.

$4.45 here in Houston

Some places like Sam’s are still $4.3x
We all know high gas prices are being caused by Biden’s refusal to approve new drilling sites. Except they are not.

The chart above proves that the United States daily domestic oil production is higher under Biden than it was under Trump. And much higher than under any previous President.

Funny you call everyone who disagrees with you stupid and are a liar, yet you are always proven to be the stupid liar in the crowd.


https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist/Le...s=MCRFPUS2&f=M


As you can obviously see domestic oil production slowly increases by the year, so one needs to compare years close together. Do the math
Trump 2020, exceeds Biden 2021, that is from a government site, not some idiots Twitter.


You are stupid because you take liberal propaganda as fact, and a liar because you post opinions and numbers without context as facts.

You beat me to do it because I was adding up the numbers to get yearly totals. Also to add Cliffy is stupid enough to believe the lies.

You cannot be serious. The source that you and Inner Dirt used is the exact same source that I used. The Energy Information Administration. EIA. The only difference is my post breaks it down by Administration while yours breaks it down by month or year.
Even comparing 2021 with 2020, oil production is down 8 tenths of 1 percent. Put another way, oil production in 2021 was 99.2% of what it was in 2020. Compared to 2019, production was only 91.1% in 2021
Oil production in 2021 was 102.25% of 2018.
Finally in 2021 oil production was 20% higher than in 2017, Trumps first year in office.

There is also the fact that the Biden Administration recently opened several sites for drilling, then closed them down when no body bid on them. NOBODY.
