      Wow! I am having to relearn where everything is on this forum. I guess I have been away for a while. Still can't post mods from work due to something funky in the lame proxy. Oh well, I should be working anyways.

      It has been a LONG time since I have poked my head in over here so I thought I would give an update.

      Life has been very good to me. Work has been busy to the point that I have been working long hours and the occasional weekend. I relocated to a different apartment in Torrance where we scored a two bedroom, three car garage unit! The garage is also taller so it will allow more room for my truck to grow!

      Speaking of the Hummer, I have been a very busy participant/leader in my club. I am still learing what it is capable of taking and the pictures will prove it!

      I did learn the extent at which I could tip my truck over and not roll. drkjstr333 was with me when I almost rolled it on a steep hill in Last Chance Canyon. Things were okay at the start. The hill is roughly a 50 degree slope with a few steps on the way up.

      Then . . . my right rear wheel dropped into a hole, putting us into a 37 degree side slope.

      Talk about pucker! Here is a good video of the incident. LINKY

      Well, I hope all of you are doing well. I will try to come back over here more often.

      A Couple of Hectic Weeks

      4 years ago

      Wow, has work been hectic lately. Seems like every task is a top priority rush. Somehow amidst all the chaos I managed to get some fun stuff done.

      I recently ordered a Wolo 840 air tank and compressor to put in the Hummer. This would allow me to have on-board air and not have to pull out the cheesy portable compressor when I air back up after a trip. It took me an entire weekend to just get the compressor and tank mounted. I had to pull the entire front of the truck off to mount the tank in the bumper in between the tow hooks.

      I found room for the compressor behind the right headlight.

      The truck sat apart for a week until the next Friday. I guess I was in a hurry to get it completed and forgot I left the cabinets open in the back of the garage again. CRACK! The back window disintegrated. I bolted the front back together enough to get the truck to a body shop to fix the rear door. I was bummed out since I had a Club Hummer Offroad meeting Saturday.

      The club meeting went well. Got to meet some new people and make plans for future trips. I decided to take a group back up to Last Chance Canyon on the September 25th. It was a fun day with my CHOmies!

      The next day, Ellen and I took a few days off to go to San Diego for our twelfth anniversary. We had a lot of fun taking the convertible around the city and spending a day at Sea World.

      Today, I got the air tank finished on the Hummer. Most of the gear is packed and ready for the run next weekend. Good thing since I have to work on Sunday.

      As usual, you can find all my pics here:

      um... well, I wasnt prepared for that

      well if I were to sell it on my site I would charge $2 plus $1 shipping

      besides the Klingon, what were your thoughts?

      I mean if you were a customer buying from the site and that came in the mail do you feel that its a decent value?

      I went with the best vinyl possible from a material standing, that's also the best release media available, did it apply well for you? (I'm very practiced at it so I am not a good test subject)

      Should I run tests?

      Yes? YES!

      I think I'm going to run tests, once the new product pages are completed, the new products up and coded, I think I'm going to run an official test
