Yes, people do, alot of 4x4 perople do...its really convenient to be able to communicate between vehicles over a short distance.
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.
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.
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.

Just found out the ones I picked up are for the Fedex Suite so it should at least make the race a bit more interesting to me! I'm not the biggest nascar fan out there but the friend I'm taking is a nascar nut! He was at the race in Phx on Sunday and said he'll be at the one in Cali on the 24th. Commitment right there!
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."
