NEW:  As you know, I been saying it for awhile now. Well now the time has come! I have redone my website from scratch.

Rickie Traeger: Ancient Aliens And Secret Societies




I am reading this book called “Ancient Aliens And Secret Societies”  

I have not gotten far into it yet. 5% according to my kindle. So I am not far in it at all.  But I already have questions and opinions.

I want to know as of right now, from a scientific approach with evidence.  How was man created?

Again, not legends, not hearsay, not from the bible.  A real scientific approach with evidence.   How was man created?

In this book it talks about how god created man.  And then it also is explaining how the aliens that are god like, created man.

As many of you know the version in the bible with the ark, great flood, etc…   They are describing a similar scenario but from the alien god like perspective.

It is very similar between the two stories.  Did one copy the other? Did they really happen at all?

I am not to educated in the topic of the Anunnaki.   I know from being in the paranormal field, I hear it a lot.  I know a lot of stuff. A lot more than most. But I never did educate myself on the Anunnaki topic.   So that is one of the reasons why i got this book. So I can learn about that topic and many others.  Like I said, I am only 5% into the book, so I still have a long ways to go.  But I am looking forward to reading this book, and hope to learn new things 🙂

 








Rickie Traeger: How To Get WXRX To Play New Hard Rock Music? Or Buy & Setup Our Our Local FM Radio Station




 

Happy Friday!   Hopefully everyone had a safe and wonderful week. Yup, it is Friday!   Weekend time 🙂     So what does everyone have planned for the weekend?

I was thinking about going fishing this weekend.  I haven’t been fishing in awhile. I have my fishing license and all, but I just haven’t been fishing much this year, lol.

It has been raining steady in our area for awhile. Some well needed rain. But now that means my lawn will be growing again, lol.  I need some exercise anyways, so let it grow so I can mow,lol.

I  have been thinking…

What it would take to buy or setup a local FM broadcast station?   I want new hard rock music to be played in our area.  WXRX, plays the older music. And is the only rock station locally.  I wish I could pick up WJJO, but they are just out of range for me to pickup.  So my only rock station is WXRX.

Soooooooo…   How do we get WXRX to play new hard rock music? Or how do we buy or setup a local fm broadcast station so I can do it myself?

 








Rickie Traeger: Cooler Outside Today




Well………. it got cold outside 🙁    I actually had to put on a jacket today. The first time in months!  The storm front came through and it dropped the temps fast and cold.  I mean realistically it isn’t that cold, but with the rain and cooler temps, it definitely is a lot colder out there.  We needed the rain, so it is nice to see 🙂   Some thunderstorms too 🙂  

 








Rickie Traeger: Trail Camera Setup Ideas




Good morning everyone! 

It is Monday.  That dreaded day that everyone hates, LOL.   Think positive though!

I have been thinking of places to setup my trail camera.   I am trying to find some really cool wildlife to capture on the trail camera.  I have been thinking about area that have had reports of exotic wildlife such as bears, mountain lions, wolves, etc…   They are rare to see in person around here.  So, I have been researching places as to where there might be potential luck to see some good wildlife. But then comes in question, even after I find an area I need to find a public land area, or ask a land owner for permission.  I think right now my best luck would be up near the stateline along the area of Meridian rd. There are a lot of open area you can see a ways, so if something crosses a field you would be able to see it pretty good.  There is another area over by Cherry Valley that has some wolves that I have been thinking about setting a trail camera for those.  I want to get it setup and going for awhile, before winter hits. I have determined that my trail camera can last approx. 3 months of a full set of batteries.  So if I set it up now, I can retrieve it around November sometime.  Which is kind of prime for these exotic animals to be traveling through our area.

On the other hand I was thinking it might be a good useful tool to try to capture some paranormal activity with it. I have been thinking of some places on public land that might have some paranormal activity.  Yes, I know trail cameras are not made for paranormal activity. But you just never know unless you give it a try.  What is the worst thing that would happen?  I would set it up and let it sit 3 months, then not capture anything, LOL.  Heck, there are many times I have set it up and haven’t caught anything but some moving trees.  Ah yes, the dreaded moving tree captures, LOL.  Or the shadows…   So realistically it won’t hurt to put it up to try to capture paranormal activity.

So the question  now is, What do you think I should set it up for: Wildlife or paranormal activity?
Whatever has the most votes, I will do that. I will leave this decision in your hands and you tell me. Wildlife or paranormal?

Wish me luck! 

 








Rickie Traeger: Misc Flight Simulator blog




Hi everyone!
Hope everyone is doing well! 

 

I was able to get the new Flight Simulator game to finally run!   Holy cow talk about a resource hog 🙁    But I will say the graphics are nice and there are a lot of neat features. I love the live features. Live traffic, live weather, etc…

I am actually just starting a flight as we speak, of a live flight.  It is from KRFD to Oakland, CA.  The game grabs actual real life flight data, and you can fly the same flight!  I normally like to fly the Cessna 172. But obviously, the Cessna 172 is not going to make that trip. So, I am going to try flying the Boeing 787.  This will be fun.

There are a few things that I want to complain about though.  Some of my visual reference points to fly into KRFD, have been taken out of the game 🙁    And also when you crash, it does not show the crash anymore.  And the whole resource hog issue and crashes alot.  But overall I like it. I think if it didnt take up so much resources and the game didn’t crash so much.

Here is a screenshot I found online. So you can see just how amazing the graphics are!


So here I was thinking summer was slipping away from us. But the next few days are going to be mid 90’s 🙂   Heck yeah I am excited!   What we really need though is a good thunderstorm.  We had a little bit of rain last night. But nothing like how much we need. I think we are in a drought. If not, we are not far from it.  Plus a good thunderstorm would be nice 🙂

 

 








Rickie Traeger: Microsoft Flight Simulator History




Rickie Traeger

 I have owned at one time or another, all the Microsoft Flight Simulator games!  This video brought back sooo many memories!  I think it is amazing how long and how far they have come with the technology as it grows. Hard to believe I have owned and played each and every one, and I still am not a pilot in real life, lol. Even though I can probably start, takeoff, fly, land, taxi  probably better than some of the real world pilots, based on my Simulator hours, LOL.  

I have literally played EVERY DAY since the day it came out, Microsoft Flight Simulator X. I may have missed a few days over the years.

But I play this game religiously on a daily basis.  The game came out in 2006 and it is August 2020 now. 

You tell me how many hours I have played (and still play) daily and how many years I have invested, LOL. 

I thought I was like the #1 fan of the game, considering literally how many years I have invested into the game, lol.

Come to find out there are fans that are even way more into the game than I am 🙂

1962 Volkswagon Bus Scale 1/32

 

Good morning everyone! 

Hopefully everyone is still staying safe and healthy!

My daughter and I went on a hike out at the park the other day.

She found a 1962 Volkswagon Bus scale 1/32 near the creek.    Looked like it had been in the creek for years.  She brought it home and I cleaned it up some.  I took this photo of it.  Pretty good photo, for being a cell phone photo.

We hiked a few trails for a bit.  I had to take a photo of this landscape. It reminded me of the movie “IT” with Pennywise.

Rock Cut State Park

We went over by the dam area of the park.  While we were there we got to meet and watch some professional wakeboarders.  JB ONeill and some of his friends were in town doing a film and promo.  https://www.youtube.com/user/jboneill They were actually filming when we went down to meet them.  They were very friendly.  They explained they were in town doing a promo and filming.  I took a video of them wakeboarding down the dam.    It was pretty cool to watch them!  My daughter and I enjoyed watching them wakeboard, and was cool seeing them wakeboard down the dam. Did I also mention they were using a drone to film 🙂   I asked them how deep the water was there, they said they could touch the bottom.  I had always thought it was way deeper than that.

I was able to get my 2 meter ham radio back on the air yesterday. I am back on the air again! 🙂

I haven’t checked the SWR on it yet, so I am not going to be on it much until I get the SWR checked on my antenna.  But I am back on the air, thats is the main thing.  It will probably be awhile before I get back on HF though 🙁    But hey, at least I am back on 2m 🙂








Rickie Traeger: Just wanted to give everyone a heads up




Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. 

Server is running slower than normal.

So you may have to wait a few extra seconds for it to load.

We have some of the best in the world IT techs investigating the issue and tracing it back.

Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon.

If not, please bear with me in the meantime on the slower than normal load times.

 








Rickie Traeger: July 20th




 

 

Good morning everyone!

Hopefully everyone had a safe and cool weekend.   It did get pretty warm after the storms rolled through the area.

I went out and mowed the lawn yesterday.  I figured it be some good exercise to mow the lawn in the heat.  I tell you one thing, it was a hot one, lol.

I been craving watermelon and bbq lately.  I was able to get a few slices of watermelon yesterday!  OMG, delicious!!!   Now to the next goal, some good bbq!  🙂

I spent 3 or 4 hours yesterday scheduling random songs for the FB page. 1 song a day for next few months.  Some local artists, some random songs and some of my favorites. I think people need some positivity in their lives. And what better way then music!  So I scheduled 1 song a day for the next few months. So people can listen to a large variety of music. Maybe give people an opportunity to listen to a genre that they normally wouldn’t. Just giving people the opportunity to listen to music 🙂   If you would like a certain song to be posted, just send me the youtube link to the song and I will schedule it for you.

I wanted to give my condolences to Nick Peterson and his family and friends. And also to Steve Thorne and his family and friends.  May you guys rest up in there in heaven!  🙁
