    I have an '84 K5. Love that rig, but a jeep would be nice.


    +1


    The weather I guess... :confused:

    I've know at least three people with '95 Ford Explorers and every one of them was a POS. There's a reason they're nicknamed "explorers". And for some odd reason all Fords have noisy power steering pumps, or at least they did up through the 90's and early '00's. Now the first gen up to '94 when the front end was still boxy, you don't hear much bad about those and you could get them with a 5 speed if you wanted. Not sure why I've heard and seen so many negative reports about explorers but not so much from the Rangers they're based on, specifically the '95 model year.

    Yea they take some practice and i have never put in much time or effort... After making a mess a couple times i was happy to go back to a spinning reel.

    However in deep water, if your just dropping straight down along side the boat... I'd prolly be ok with one lol.


    And thanks bro... Prolly gunna have to let the boat pass this time though.... Id have to come up with 600... Really good deal but we just bought a new washing machine beginning of the month then just finished our new roof yesterday that cost 6400 and we planned a new fridge next month...

    600 might as well be 6000 right now.

    I'll save up and keep my eyes open for another deal!

    I called about the Jeep a few minutes ago. They said it was in good condition body, and interior wise, but they had to order a part for the axle. He didn't know what exactly it was. Has a winch, so I'm guessing it was used to go 4 wheelin'. He said they had several hits about it online. Here she is. She's a looker:

    Looks nice Dubz. Would be a good idea to have a mechanic inspect it just because it's a used vehicle but it sure looks promising.

    I wouldn't be able to go there until Saturday. It's a few hours drive away. I wish it were closer so I could take it to my mechanic.

    Bummer, I think the best shot of the knife is when the sheath covers it. Two more 1084 knives then it's time to switch.

    No day off here. I've got work, then some more work.

    Next week though, I'm taking off.

    That sounds like a good day to me.

    Today is my last day of work before a long weekend trip to TX. It has been dead all week, so naturally, today is the day that all hell is breaking loose. I'll put out what fires I can, delegate the others, and let the hyenas pick at the rest. Then I'll run home to fix a leaky toilet and pack for a trip..... I'm wanting a good IPA, so I may need to make a pit stop on the way home.

    Had a 90 minute death-by-powerpoint class after working a 13-hour shift. Bleh. Well at least it's over now. Until the next one...

    Feeling lazy today. Skipped my morning Krav Maga classes. Probably will laze about, read, and then do some house cleaning, then go to the evening class. Heck, I'm even too lazy to take pics of blades today.

    Ken Schwartz just announced he is now making Nubatama stones for the KME sharpener. He also released a 0.025micron emulsion at 3.2million grit.
