The best swimming holes in Vermont

In Vermont , a state with only about 600,000 people, the opportunities for a summertime respite abound in the state’s parks and high country. There’s no better release from the unrelenting heat of summer than a dip in a local swimming hole, and here you can find them under bridges, tucked behind barns, or on a several-mile hike through the woods — if you know where to look. With a bit of scouting and a little know-how, these four swimming holes are actually quite easy to find and are perfect f...

Portable generators & welders.

Before someone recommends a Miller Bobcat or Lister diesel, those are out of the price range. Plus I already own the Lincoln AC 225 & already paid for is a good thing in my book. Is anybody running a welder off of their portable? If so, what size welder & generator? Yes I'll be adding a mig at some point. But for now I need to get a generator that will run my 225amp stick.
