Ysb-just curious, why didn't you pull just far enough into your driveway to prevent parking behind? 2 car driveway? Gotta say, I know you must have given them weeks or months worth of chances. I would have flipped out and probably ended up in jail for torching it. Either that or towed it right off. You are much more patient than I. I don't really know how I would have handled that.

Eventually I would've either lifted the car on floor jacks and rolled it out into the middle of the street or possibly used the jeep winch to park it in his yard... Maybe just push it back up in front of his house but leave it sitting on cinder blocks with all 4 tires off the ground? Either way, I'd have just moved it myself...

I've had my share of stupid over the years. Might be hard to tell now, but I used to enjoy fighting. There were times when I considered it recreation. Home is different. You don't want that sort of stuff around where you live.

It was a townhouse. I had a two space driveway, but it was a tandem driveway. There was also a sidewalk that went over the driveways. I didn't want to block the sidewalk since there was an elementary school nearby.

I did what I could to stop it. I first talked to the neighbor. I tried to talk to his landlord, but he didn't care. Having tried other solutions, I felt having it towed was the next step. Had it continued after that, I probably would have started it myself and parked it in a river.

Yeah, at that point it would have been the only way to get through his dense little skull! Anyone got a hookup or buddy needing work that pours and finishes concrete? Obviously I'm willing to pay for it, just want a second quote. Needing about 10.5yds

that would have beeen a better plan then setting it on fire or pushing it in the street. they'll know you took it but maybe they dont know. either way the car is gone and the problem is solved.

Damn it. Those Ron Paul people keep calling me and I keep asking them to stop calling. They always ask if they have my support and I always tell them I would never, ever vote for Ron Paul.

They've had hundreds of people out there searching Calico Basin. I've climbed a few areas there and there aren't that many places to get lost. Even with the lower temps, decomp wouldn't be difficult to track, unless he was in water. Calico Tanks is the only place up there with water deep enough to conceal a body, but you can see to the bottom there when it's deep. It's probably less than 2 feet deep now.
Still not found. Search "find Ron Kirk" on facebook and you'll see the page. They are assembling another search party for this Saturday. I will be out there at around 8am. They are searching brownstone this weekend.

About the treadwright. I did a lot of research to find these tires. They were $521 shipped, and probably another $50 to mount and balance. This price is far cheaper than ANY halfway decent tire out there. I haven't seen a bad review of them and there is a large. Thread on this forum about them. Mostly nothing but good things.

Smiiile-do you know someone that pours and finishes? Or just epoxy coating? Like I said, I'll pay for it, not asking for charity here. I was quoted 2600 to dig out, form and pour a roughly 70'x12'x4" slab. It's a lot of concrete, about 10.3-10.5 yds.

4dr wrangler sport - but me saying it was too cold to go topless made me think it only reinforced the 'soccer mom-ness" of that vehicle.... Might be taking off the 'freedom panels tomorrow

Is there a grid somewhere showing areas searched in relation to where his vehicle was found?
