    As far as putting webbing or even rope around a tree--the tree will be fine as long as it doesn't girdle the tree but the bark will incorporate the rope or webbing over time. I'd go for the screw eyes, for a better look.

    (The monkey-wrenchers like to spike trees, doesn't seem to hurt the trees, just the loggers and their saws. [I don't approve]).
    Isn't the drop cloth just inviting people to piss on it?

    If you say so. To me it's a urine soaked mess hanging up on my side of the property that I have to deal with or suffer the smell.

    heh, heh. I've dropped about $100 worth of dimes. Sometimes they do something sometimes they don't.
    Town Council passed a fairly strict STR ordinance, but town staff--it's a town manager system--does what they want to do to keep the transient occupancy tax dollars coming in.

    Check and see if the house is on the Truckee STR List. If itís not, raise hell. I had a party house behind me in TD, and found out they werenít on the list. Once itís on, the owner has to provide a phone number to promptly respond to any issues. You probably know this.

    Yeah, it's a permitted STR. The thing about getting problems solved in real time isn't happening. And it definitely isn't happening after hours. I think the owner has been fined a few times but we don't hear about that. Things have been better lately, maybe there's more enforcement than I know about.

    1. Found a good target of a used vehicle. Unfortunately previous owner smokes cigarettes, which rates among my least favorite smells in life. Do ozone bombs work, or just ditch it?

    2. With all the money I spend on insurance, an aftermarket used car warranty sounds enticing, but I always read they are laughable. Why?

    Oh... man. That would be a hard no from my end. I don't think that there is really *any* way to remove that stench from a vehicle, short of removing the interior completely and replacing it.

    That said... maybe I'm just overly pessimistic.

    1. I've never used ozone bombs, but my wife's car was stolen last year and was raged on and in, and this includes smoke that went beyond cigarettes. The body shop used some sort of sealed process to, in short, suck the toxins out of the car. I'm likely describing it incorrectly, and I don't know the name. It did work, however. Check with your local body shops and various dealers on who they use for that process.

    2. It all depends. Some companies are great, others are a joke, and some are fly-by-night. I had one for a few motorcycles and it was absolutely worth the money. If you can find the names of these companies; do your homework.

    I top to bottom remodeled a post and beam house last yer that the former owner smoked in for 30 years, picture nicotine stained walls and a nauseating level of smell. Washed the surfaces and Binned all of the drywall before painting which helped but still awful smelling. Tongue and groove ceiling, 2nd floor flooring.
    Bought an ozone generator and completely eliminated all smoke odor. 1%er clients were super happy.

    As far as aftermarket or extended warranties on used cars--the way I figure it is insurance is for something you can't afford to pay for, not car repairs. That said my kid has bought two--the first one paid for itself a couple of times over, Audi clutch. The second one would have except towing the car to the dealer would have cost as much as the repair.

    A good detailer can reduce the smell a bit, but I think it will come back. The smoke gets not only into the car roof liner, but if cloth seats into the cloth and the foam as well as the carpeting. It's bit better off if leather seats from a smell standpoint sometimes. I ran a used car for a year and some and it seemed to have smoke smell. I did the carpet cleaner, scrubbed the seats and Febreze spray through the liner, into the seats and then it got a bit better until the warmer summer months when it would of course sit in the hot sun... Was a beater of a car just to get some transportation until another better and nicer vehicle deal came along after previous car had way too many issues to pass inspection.

    Looking for an outdoor wifi camera system to mount on the porch looking into the yard & driveway at my cabin so that I can check in on the place when I'm back in town. Trying to avoid a monthly subscription deal. What's my best bet?

    Blink worked pretty well for us, if you're looking to do it cheap, but it had its limitations.

    Def looking to do it cheap as this is more for my own amusement than it is to address any real security concerns. To be honest, my main goals are seeing critters rambling thru the yard and setting up a snow stake.

    SURVEY SAYS! The smoke definitely did NOT go away.
    Bummer.
    Then they had the audacity on a second vehicle to tell me the fact the brake pedal was squishy and a quarter inch off the floorboard was no problem at all.
    I’m worried for whatever person buys that one without knowing what’s up.

    Cornucopia or Famine?

    So Q-hatter friend is on about grocery shortages. Anyone seeing actual empty shelves? Or thinly stocked?

    Most of his "articles" feature photos from 2020. I do see the usual media hype about supply chain problems (try to import 20% more containers, and duh). But most food is not imported - My grocery seems as stocked as always, though I order online and would not see empty shelves or outages of products I don't eat. Occasionally they don't have something, but that's been the case since humans stumbled out of Eden.

    No grocery shortages when I was there today. Only empty shelves Iíve seen in the last month or two were changeovers in seasonal product (school stuff to Halloween, now thanksgiving)

    You do need to order an SD card if you want to be able to store any video. If you just want to see what the weather is doing live, they work fine without it.
