    best dumpster score..

    I just stopped by my favorite dumpster belonging to a bougie outdoor gear company. Picked up two crossbows, a couple huuuuge tents, some campchairs and a leatherman. Returned everything I couldn't use to the store for cash money and boots!

    Video DIY welding using car batteries!

    I was fucking around in the woods near Saint Johnsberry vt and came across a compound that had a battery bank powered welder.

    Featured How do you make your money?

    Circus cook! It's the best gig I've ever had. I work three months out of the year having the best time and living for free. If I hoard all my paychex I can make it the other 9 months without working, living pretty comfortable (always live for free tho, I've never ever paid rent).
