  • Road Trip!

    Found a fun "shortcut" road heading for Socorro. Love it when the blue line on the GPS disappears, especially when you are on a "highway".

    Five is amazing. All I've ever seen were some tracks in camp. Well, did see a jaguarundi heading from the beach in Ixtapa in the 80's. We were on the side of the road when he crossed.

    And why were we on the side of the road? Our taxi had a flat (naturally for me) and the cabbie's jack didn't work.

    (Apparently the chairs are on backorder. ;) )

    That's anther fun thing you can do camping.

    First get an old fashioned windup Big Ben alarm clock and swap the top bells for a rattlesnake rattle you've glued onto the striker.

    Then set the alarm for around 9 pm and hide the clock behind a log or a bush near the campfire.

    Along about 8:45, when everyone is nice and mellow, start telling snake stories....

    I'm still on my first pot of coffee and for a minute there I thought @brian125 was going to take a break. If anyone around here deserves one, it's him. Play a round of golf instead Brian!

    Plan B: and you will appreciate this one stever lol. back to Rogue but not the Select. We really liked the 2014 Rogue S (new body style) as much if not more than he CRV LX. The reason it's

    I like that plan better - not a big fan of buying "orphan" cars. Money can be hard to come by sometimes, but life is too short to drive around in a car that you "settled" for.

    And yeah, Nissan deals don't seem all that great, although I think there's a bit more incentive money on some models right now. Not sure if it's still live, but recently you could click around the site and a coupon would pop up. Again, not sure what models that applied to.

    Smart move getting rid of the van too.

    Another day, another flat. My third since I got this van in July. (One was just a slow leak due to salty rims). Picked up a nail sometime and the TPMS light came on first thing this morning, but made it 7 miles to a shop okay.

    I'm gonna rethink runflats.
