Did you ever send Gerald the pictures of the rear brace across the back of the skid that I asked for?

I sent some more of the skid but didn't realize he needed the back brace as well. I can send those this evening when I get home. If you want to you can PM me your email and I can copy you in on those plus forward the rest to you as well.

I was trying to get more video of the incident but unforuntately the only video that exists is what's already posted a few pages back in this thread. Let me know if you need the link for that as well.

Thanks,

Matt

Either way humans will adapt and overcome anything that happens.
Can't say it better that that!

Hey, for any of you guys that want to do the RV thing without buying an RV on the cheap check out cruiseamerica.com Their repair facility is in Phoenix and they have all sorts of one way deals all of the time.


For example... they are currently showing 2 RV's that need to come to Vegas. You go pick them up and just deliver them to the destination when you are done. The ones right now you can get for up to 6 nights @ $12 per night and you are allowed 1500 free miles.


To put that into easier terms for you guys... you could drive to Phoenix pick up the RV, drive back here (350 miles) then still have the RV for 6 days... the only out of pocket expense would be $72 if you keep it 6 nights and the price of gas. You could do Moab, the beach, Big bear, Death Valley, or where ever you want to go camping... for dirt cheap. Heck if you have family coming in from out of town, you could probably do this and leave it parked in front of your house.


If we are still moving, I am hoping to get one heading out east.

Do you have any idea how much CO2 one of those behemoths puts out?

I have it on good authority that it is almost as bad as one of Pucks farts. You two ****s are destroying the ice caps!

I know this has probably been shared here, or at least everyone has seen this, but it's a powerful video that I wanted to share again!

Don't go to the place I was at. I was wearing work boots, cargo pants and a company polo and a nice work jacket, and I felt like I was wearing rags and everybody was staring at me. Also I wasnt working on my macbook air, and i had a magpul cover on my iphone, which was only an Iphone 4.

Talk about not fitting in.

I can only imagine if any of them saw or knew about the 1911 under my shirt.
