Well, while we were away the last week or so, I chose the Etrex Vista C. I got it UPS a couple of days ago. Costco.com had the best price I could find at $275. I have not been able to mess with it much yet, but it looks like a nice unit. It is amazing how much stuff this little unit can do. Now I ha...

AIMLESS WANDERING - NEED GPS INFO

I'm looking for some information about how to determine what GPS system I should get for my new sand rail. I've never used a GPS system before, but understand how they work and that a GPS unit would be a great addition to the new rail I am getting. So if any one has some advise on how I can determin...

She is so far gone... it's sad.

I'm sure most of the media will prop her up again once she says something lucid along the same line.

Sad.

CHRISTMAS AND THE GIANT SUCKING SOUND

Christmas? Giant Sucking Sound? No, the sucking sound is not the 18" diameter pumps sucking the flood waters from the streets of New Orleans. So, what exactly am I talking about? :?: If you all will indulge me, I'll explain. Well, the giant sucking sound that you are about to hear is a direct result...

Hey Thor,

Sounds interesting.
What exactly is the Ghost Haunt? I've never heard about it before this.
Is it an organized event?
Does the RV Park accept 40' Mo Ho's w/50 amp service?
Is the area there open for riding?

Thanks for the heads up and info.

Peter

Great story Steve! It sure is great to hear that Larry is happy with the new rail. Thanks for the update.

During this last season, she had been asking for a more powerful quad. During the next dune season (or sooner), the LT80 will become too...
