  1. Damn! That's brutal news. He will be missed. RIP VT
  2. I hope the dude with the sweet comb-over in the ad photo is not one of the EB admin. Just sayin'
  3. That's a sweet ride. I like the color too. We bought a new 2011 back about 15 months ago. Same color. I love the thing. It might ride a bit like a truck, but that's what we need here in the mountains. They are very capable off road. Ho ho ho.
  4. Gets cold in the desert at night. You could see a dusting of snow which would make for great photos. Another easy BP food idea. Can of chili, corn tortillas and oil. Heat and serve tacos
  5. I hear in Virginia guys on the AT got shot at by moonshiners.
  6. There are awesome books on the various sections. At least there were at REI in 1993-94. FWIW, I remember folks doing sections and a parent hiking in ahead of time to cache food and supplies along the way. I'm sure it made it easier for the little ones. There were also cool huts and shelters in some sections. This eliminates the requirement for tents.
  7. I wanted to do the entire trail and studied up on it during the end of my senior year of college. Right after graduation I spent a little more than a month from MA to the NH/ME border (I forget w/o checking/finding the journal how many miles, but it was ~ 400ish). These sections were tough, but temperature was easy. I heard fgrom 'thru-hikers' doing the entire trail that the south was so hot that they would recommend starting in the north and heading south. They said it was easiest to hike at night. It must be great to hike sections in the Autumn with leaves and everything down there. Th
  8. Tomorrow looks slow. So it's Friday here too!!!!!!
  9. We won't be able to use the company box seats and drink beer the entire game on the company's dime.
  10. Damn, now Hockey looks like the season will not happen due to another lock-out.
  11. My housekeeper crashed the Land Rover while taking it in for detailing. Now she's going to be out of work while her femur heals. Who will clean the house?
  12. I'm outta here for a long weekend of back-packing and fly-fishing. It's my Friday,you can cry if you want to!!
  13. that stuff might have been too good. automotive paint industry may not want clear coat to last so long. or maybe it was bad for the enviro?
  14. Rain does a good job, but I swear by a once of year thorough detail and wax to keep the car looking great. My silver 01' Tacoma looks almost as nice as when I got it after a good waxing. It's like putting money in the bank. The longer it stays nice, the longer I own it. And I might keep this thing until my 3 year old can drive (if the engine lasts). I am going to try and own our new 4runner for 10+ years too.
  15. thanks for the input. I've always used Meguiars rim cleaner on my wheels, but I've heard waxing those is also the way to go. Not sure I want to make that switch though
  16. Question - what's the consensus on waxing the plastic (painted to match body) molded body panels on newer vehicles?
  17. I've heard of terrible 2's, but WTF. Mini CDC hasn't gotten any better since turning 3. This terrible 2's deal was a bit misleading
  18. ^ Tonight, one night only, Peakachoo does Davey Jones in Vegas
