Re: Important

depending on what Mac does with his new jeep, I may have a seat. I don't have my rear belts in so the back seats are not an option.

I have given Mac first option. Dylan gets a seat for Chadville.

I've got two guys from work coming, one with a cj7 and another with a tj. both will have open seats.

or something like that...hopefully mama lets me buy my truck by then. i've been searching fairly hard for a 94-96 cummins ram. i talked to her about it again this morning and she didn't bat an eye, so i have a feeling it will probably happen. i wish i could afford a newer one, but i like the 12v cummins and the gen 2 ram body style...plus 96 or older diesels dont need an emissions test in New Jersey...and the 12v motors are fairly easy to find if you need one.

Re: Important

I like the sound of this road trip!

Let me know, if we don't have anything going on I think a UP excursion would be fantastic...

Knox County – Monday night, April 29, at approximately 9:59, a Knox County Deputy was driving down Wilbur Street in Vincennes when he was flagged down by friends of Ross A. Darkis, 42, who resided at 215 Wilbur Street. Darkis was intoxicated and was in possession of a handgun on his front porch. He had been arguing with his girlfriend earlier in the evening and was very upset according to his friends. Additional officers from Knox County Sheriff’s Office and Vincennes City Police arrived. Officers attempted to get Darkis to surrender his weapon, but he refused. Officers used a taser and a weapon that discharges a small bean-bag in attempt to diffuse the situation, but both non-lethal weapons were unsuccessful. At approximately 10:25 p.m., Darkis raised the handgun he was holding toward the officers. In order to protect themselves and other officers on scene, several of the officers fired their weapons. Darkis was struck multiple times and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes where he was pronounced dead several minutes later. The identity of the Vincennes City Police Officers and Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy involved in the shooting are not being released at this time. No officers were injured.

The investigation is continuing.
Can't say much else, but I was the Deputy that got flagged down.

Went to the baby doctor today. doctors walks in and cant believe how big the wife has gotten. decides she wants another ultrasound to get a view of the size. after digging around in there, she says she is not even close yet, then tells us we will be having a pretty big baby.

as we leave the office i tease my wife telling her that's probably going to hurt like shit and rip her open. she gets mad and say your big ass put this big ass baby in me.

30 years ago, I got in a snowball fight halfway up the Keweenaw Peninsula on Memorial Day weekend.

Whereabouts in da YooPee are you thinking? East, west, south, north?

Not exactly sure yet. Still planning. We are thinking we will probably hrow the kayaks o the roof and I want to do some remote, secluded camping. Any suggestions? All I have seen so far is US2 heading over to Mackinac Island.

Wow, man. Hopefully you're handling this well. I know we talked a lot about this kind of situation at WF. I'm no shrink, but if you need to talk about it, you got my number.

I hate to laugh at this because it's true, but wiser words have never been spoken.

Re: Important

You can do big lake kayaking on 3 sides. Pictured Rocks near Munising should be pretty impressive from a kayak, I have no idea how much of a paddle you're looking at from a dock. There are small rivers & lakes everywhere. Especially up in the Keweenaw, watch out for unexpected waterfalls.

There's always the Seney Wildlife Refuge.

Whitefish Point.

The locks at Sault St. Marie.

Drummond Island

If we keep talking about this, will Brian (97XJ2) show up?
