scott: I think tomorrow I'm gonna go rent a pressure washer and see about a sander. You're right man, money isn't exactly flowing out my ears right now, so hopefully I can get this done myself and get some more life out of it. Would I get the sander at Home Depot? And what kind of sealer? Just like the standard Thomson's deck sealer?


AFAIK Home Depot rents just about everything...i forget exactly but i think they have like a 4 hour rate and a daily rate, so if it's close enough you may want to just get one first, return it and get the other

are you just sealing and keeping the natural color, or are you staining too? i went with a 5 gallon jug of Behr (was doing some privacy fence too)...think it was like $125 with a $20 rebate...i've seen home depot run that from time to time on paint/stain around Memorial Day...could be possible they have a similar deal for Labor Day :-?

just hit up yellowpages.com, enter your locality, and search on tool rental, there are probably lots of places around your hood you can call for rates.

Wait and see how the wood cleans up. If it has surface issues, you may want to use a stain to make it prettier.

Oh and don't forget to sand the railings, don't want to get splinters in your butt if you're leaning up against it nekkid ;-)

If you trim the bushes around your deck, it'll make your deck look bigger.

Other than that go with the composite stuff. ;-D

Mosly now it was just getting the stuff off the deck put away so I can repair the deck. All of which I have mostly done. So are you able to work with your back out? I imagine it must be tough to be on patrol, and maybe even dangerous, with your back in a fragile state. Are you on leave?


Funny that you ask. If we miss more than 3 consecutive days of work due to injury, we have to re-do that week of training. And if we miss more than one week of training, we have re-do that 7-week phase. So I took one day off, and went back to work the next day. I still couldn't walk without a slight limp, but I tried to hide it the best I could. I was just really hoping I wouldn't get a suspect that went bad on me because I was in no condition to be tusslin' around. We did get a call about a suicide though. This lady had swallowed a bottle full of pills and was passed out inside her locked apartment. They needed someone to kick the door in, and of course I couldn't help because of my back. So the firemen did it, and gave me crap (and still do to this day) about it. And then once we found the lady inside (she must have weighed a good 200), they had to carry her down without my help. I felt pretty useless, especially since I'm just a rookie. But luckily I didn't have to fight anyone. I've been back to work ever since, and my back still hurts quite a bit, especially with the vest and duty gear on, it really pulls down on your torso all day long. But if I throw it out while at work, I'll just make them pay for it. :-b

Sorry, I'm jumping in late here. I've had chronic ciatica problems for about 5 years now. It's stemming from lifting heavy things, and a bulging disk. It's the most excruitating, debilitating pain I've ever experienced in my life. When it is at it's worst. The only way to explain the pain is , If I were laying in bed and my house was on fire, I would burn to death, because I litterally can't move, it's strictly paralyzing pain. :~(

Well, I'm certainly feeling you right now Met. I worked on the pond all day Friday, had a doubleheader (baseball) Saturday and spent all day yesterday fishing and playing with the kids. I felt a 'tweak' during one of the games Saturday but didn't think much of it. Last night, however, a couple hours before the alarm went off, it really flared up. It started in the muscle just left of my spine but it reached all around my left side. I was worried since that's the side I've broken ribs on 2 occasions, but it was a different pain. Needless to say ibuprofen got me through the day and I'm feeling much better right now.
