that way people can tell you and the group leader that their FSJ is dead on the trail before you drive a mile away from them and have to run back up a hill on foot to see why the headlights disappeared.

not that I'm referring to anybody in specific....

It surprised me that Terry and I were the only ones with CB's.
An issue soon to be addressed.

Tuesdays/wednesdays are the days i normally go because we know the bar tender. nothing like a hookup on tiki drinks.

P.S. thats my 2nd favorite bar in town.

also, i dont think that "few" people have CB's, what is a more convenient way to communicate between rigs on the trail? Its fine when one or two people dont have them but as we saw, it would have been alot better if a few more folks had them. PEeople were sitting waiting for like 45 minutes while Greg and I were cuttin and replacing hose on Pucks rig with no updates.

they are all very specific about it, haha. Its good practice, but its fine to give it a lil stress test.

Theres somebody on youtube who frog lubed their glock and hasnt cleaned the thing in months.

I remember back in the 80's when everyone had one, so by comparison, few do have them. Common among off roaders, but still the chances of someone offroad being in range when you need help is slim. Assuming they are not in your group, of course.

I was put on phone restriction once. Can't remember why. My girlfriend at the time lived just a mile away. I got us a pair of CB's.

Guess I will get a CB. Going all the way though getting this one
http://www.gijoesradioelectronics.co...idproduct=1080
It a 10 meter but with a simple mod it goes down far enough to get CB frequencies as well.

I went to the truck races a few years back in a box. I'm not a racing fan, but it was incredibly engaging. Definitely worth the time to do it. They also gave us race radio with noise cancelling headphones. It was really loud ... but it was cool to listen in on the drivers. Whenever someone got wrecked, we all turned to the channel for that truck so we could get the uncensored "commentary."

If you can hit a repeater. I have a HAM, I love it. I use it for races tho. No license yet so I can't talk on it on the trail....
