I wish I had a pic of coyotes, almost hit a huge one a few years back. It was in the road and wouldn't back off.

I almost hit one on the highway. He was walking against traffic and didn't give a crap.

I used to have big off road tires that really sang on my Jeep, the only two animals to stand up to it were that coyote and a huge buck with a major basket on his head.

In 1993 I was idling down a road going to my tree stand and had a buck hump the radiator of my pick up. Tore up the hood pretty bad. Found out my assistant had put buck lure on my hood vents. He thought the smell would be offensive in the cab, he paid for the body work.

Now that I'm retired, there isn't much electrical work to take pictures of anymore. But I did get a chance to pull out the bender a few weeks ago.


Certainly nothing special except... this is Florida. Mine is probably the only house for miles that has conduit in it.

When I set up the garage for use as a workshop, I did all the electrical in pipe. My neighbor, who is a builder, stopped by, saw the conduit, shook his head and said, "That is WAAAAY overkill."

I just find working with pipe easier for me.

People do what they know. I wouldn't say overkill, I'd say best possible circumstance for a garage workshop environment.
