  1. I've done a lot of hiking including 2 weeks on the AT. I prefer running shoes to hiking boots. I have wide feet and have never found a boot that fit well enough and still be light. Trekking poles are great for when I have a backpack. Without them my arms get fatigued quickly. Without a back pack I think they're more trouble than they're worth. I also highly recommend pants with the zip off legs for spring and fall when the temp can change drastically throughout the day.
  2. Yeah, I can't imagine paying that much for something I'm going to take off road. But then, I'm not making the big bucks like Otis.
  3. Hey Otis, I know where you can get a deuce and a half for only $5K. May as well stop beating around the bush.
  4. You referring to the rhino-lined exterior (PITA for cleaning maintenance) or the build/setup? The lift/bumpers/tires/etc is all easily added to any jeep if that's the case I think you're missing the point of rhino-lining. It isn't for people who want to make their Jeep look new again after they wash it. It's to keep the body from rusting when you scratch the hell out of it from heavy brush, rocks, and branches. They don't care if their Jeep shines, they just want it to last. My floors are lined so when it gets a good coating of mud, salt and grit, I can just pull the drain plugs and hose it out. It's lasted 10 years and isn't peeling anywhere, which is much better than powder coating in my experience. Yes, it never looks perfectly clean, but I just don't care.Trust me man... I know the point of durability... I'm not missing anything. My jeep likely has as much or more in the way of trail-striping and body damage from rocks and such as anyone here... And I've hosed my rig out many times. My floor plugs haven't been in since 2007. That said, we are talking about Otis here. He may end up heading down that road but for what I initially expect his use of the vehicle to be, it would end up being a bad idea. Point taken. He doesn't strike me as a guy who doesn't care what his rig looks like.

  6. I've always wanted to go to Sengaku-ji in Tokyo and visit the graves of the 47 Ronin.
  7. yep. As stated here, CJ may make you feel nostalgic in that you're getting a "real" jeep..... but definitely take a few for a ride before you commit. Leaf springs, short wheelbase, and solid axles will beat you up a bit on the road. There are few things more fun, vehicle-wise, than driving a topless/doorless jeep around on a nice day. The other thing about CJs is you really don't want to lift them much. A very narrow stance makes them feel less stable when you do.
  8. Sounds nuts. Last time you got out there? It's been a few years. The enduros are much safer and less exciting these days. I remember the first time I went and wondered why so few people were sitting at the end of the turn. I was soon reminded why they are called dirt tracks. That was some gritty beer.
  9. I used to go to the enduro races at Hagerstown all the time. About 40 $300 cars racing around a 1/2 mile track. Wheels and body parts flying off and they would just keep racing around the wrecks. It was awesome!
  10. Maybe one of the producers told him that if he didn't manufacture some drama the show would be canceled because it's so freakin' boring and predictable. Freddy is a team player.
  11. Maybe he should avoid the no reserve auctions.
  12. Worst depression I ever had was when I was suffering from low T and didn't know it, and that's saying something considering some of the loss I've experienced in my life.
  13. This is the hardest part. These Moore movies are like when those guys on tv try to eat those 70-ounce steaks. There is so much of it that it eventually becomes impossible to eat, it all taste the same, and then you want to throw up and die. Glad to see you're still thoroughly enjoying this. I'm just surprised you haven't made it the whole way through by now so you can start all over again. Dr. No was on some channel the other day. I stopped and watched. Did your wife know or was it one of those deals where you quickly changed the channel whenever she came into the room?

  15. That had to be the smallest starting grid since F1 was last at Indianapolis. It was a decent race, but totally screwed with my fantasy race team.
  16. For the third time now since I've been watching the show, Clarkson has mentioned how all the bad guys in American films are British. And every time he comes to the same conclusion as to why; because Americans are afraid of people more intelligent than they are. I have my own theory. If you want a villain that every one will hate, make him a snob. Americans hate snobs. Brits have been perfecting snobbery for centuries, so it only stands to reason that an inordinate number of Brits are cast as villains. Love the show, though. Hopefully the head snob will be back soon.
  17. I've watched like 14 of these ####ing things in 8 weeks. What more do you need from me to see I'm a fan? To blow the guy? Sorry, I just don't see why you would want to be a fan of something you really don't like for the most part. But whatever makes you happy... or unhappy... oh, forget it.
  18. I'm confused. You say you are a Bond movie fan, yet you hate twice as many as you like. What's your definition of "fan"?
  19. My Optima yellow top is finally crapping out and I need a replacement battery. I heard the Optima isn't what it used to be. Can anybody recommend another brand of AGM type batteries? I need deep cycle for my winch. Where can I get the best price?
  20. Who gave this to you? Obviously they didn't realize you are not a big fan.
  21. Not to worry. I'm sure Bond has a 5 gallon tub of lube stashed on him (probably where he keeps his suction cups and grappling hooks).
