Duracoat Continues

The worst thing about Duracoat is there are way too many colors, and sometimes they turn out way different than you thought.  I'm probably addicted to it and the downside is it takes a long time and if you screw up hours have been wasted, patience is needed.

I thought about trying to multicam a rifle but it looked way to difficult and my attempt on an M4 magazine failed horribly, the camo actually worked but it wasn't what I was looking for.

The good news I really enjoy painting things, that and my friends always come over and we hang out while we sand and paint.  They never seem to run out of stuff to paint w.hich is nice because I don't have that much stuff and painting magazines gets old.

Another problem with the colors is people online don't list what colors they used, so I try to match what I think and the color is wrong and sucks.  Tactical Woodland Brown sucks, it really isn't brown at all, so my 3 color digital camo became 2, Magpul FDE and Tactical FDE.

The snake skin effect turns out awesome, (Tactical FDE and Magpul OD Green)

If someone has an awesome brown send me the color, next coloring i'm buying is tactical coyote tan.

Juice Part 2

3 weeks since my Blendtec arrived, I bought mine from harvest essentials they offer the wild side container (larger 96oz) for $50 extra.  I bought this because I thought it would be nice, turned out that the regular size is way to small and I have never used it.  If I had to do it again I would pay the $40 for just the wild side size and pay the $50 extra for another one.  A 96oz container is essential to pack the blender full of food.

Ensure you pack the blender correctly, I didn't' the first time and my green drink was steaming and I thought the blendtec was a piece of crap.  If you read the manual it will tell you how to properly pack the blender.  I always add water at least 12 ounces, it makes life much easier.  Start with the hard fruit first, carrots, apples etc. then I add the green leafs then the fruit.  I add the powders in the middle and frozen blueberries last to ensure the drink is cold.  If you are used to juicing it will be thicker but if you drink protein shakes you won't notice a difference.

The blendtec is awesome, it keeps track of the number of blends mine is at 72.  The only problem is I can't put everything in that i want, so I have elected to have 2 per day.  I look at it as a system, just like a bug out bag, I can't cram everything I might ever need into a bag that will weigh 200lbs and expect to walk to California.  Like wise you can't put your days worth of veggies and fruit into one shake.

I have split my shakes into 2 groups.  The morning group is all about Kale, the afternoon shake is all about Spinach.  That way I can ensure to cram all the veggies and fruit I want into the 2 shakes, on a side note I really haven't noticed any loss of muscle mass, or real loss in strength.  One huge benefit I have noticed is the cleansing effect on my body, when I have bowel movements I can literally feel my intestines being cleaned out, awesome.  All the toxins in the body (fluoride in the water, pollution, radiation etc) are leaving.  It is a wild feeling and I pretty sure I'm not going to have colon cancer.

The Blendtec has huge upfront costs but if you search the house for lots of ebay and craigslist items, in a couple of weeks you'll have enough to buy the blender, that is what I did, Operation Victory Sweep.  Follow the Army Troop Leading Procedures and you will have success.  IT IS WORTH IT.

Using a blendtec is an art form and it will take you a week or 2 to really perfect the craft of loading the contents correctly to get the consistency that best suits your taste buds (recipe below video).

Kale Shake (morning, listed in the order I place them in the blendtec)
16oz water
2 carrots
1 apple
1/2 cucumber
1 piece of pineapple
1tsp cordyceps mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, milk thistle

If you are a fan of MMA, you'll love Ronda Rousey. 5 fights with 5 submissions, look her up on youtube for other nasty fights.

Usually the females put on the best fights.
