        Never tried this stuff. Time will tell.
        Damn man, you're woods are 100 times cleaner than my yard at the moment. I'd gladly send you and inch or two of rain per day.

        This shit is killing me. I've been trying to nuke my yard for 10 days now. The trend has been a downpour with 4-5 hours before the next downpour. So today I get out there about 45mins after the rain with a stronger concentrate to overcome a bit of the residual rain on the vegetation. I hosed that shit down like a mad man, using way more Round Up than necessary, hoping some would stick. Annnnnnnnd........ it started pouring again 15 minutes after I was done. FML.

          Flat Fenders, baby!

          Awesome Jeep.

          Nothing like a flat fender. Early CJ or an MB? Looks like a CJ2A?

          That's a fantastic project... but pretty great looking just like it sits!

                                              Cool stuff. Do those mounted weapons systems have to be "deactivated ", made unserviceable, etc... for travel on public roads? Just curious. They would get a lot of "attention" here. I would think in your parts as well.

                                                    So many of my aviator friends and mentors had children who showed no more than a passing interest, despite their family owning a plane and their dads having combat time in their logbooks. A few of their kids kept up just enough interest to solo then dropped out of flying altogether. I have one Navy Captain friend (P2-V Neptune, P-3 Orion) who has one son who became an airline captain, and an Air America pilot friend (gone West) whose son flew F-16s in the Guard. The rest of them continued to fly actively in civilian life, but their kids just didn't have any interest. MY family had NO ONE who had any interest in flying, yet I was somehow struck with a love affair for old airplanes as a kid with no one to shepherd me. I would have KILLED for the opportunity those kids just took no interest in. My theory is that it just wasn't that "cool" to them because it was always there for their entire lives, and there was nothing new and exciting about it (plus, maybe a bit of rebellion, to go a different direction than their parents' interests).
