Maybe buy used and get both!

I would but its tough to find either used. I look believe me.

If I get a bumper, I might as well stuff a winch in there while its off too. I wish they gave those away. Sierra Expeditions has a very good price on a Warn right now too.

Yeah I hear you! As I think about it, I would do the bumper and winch first - but that's me. I like to have people like MPleitez bug me to mess up my truck by going on trails we shouldn't be on!

Oh, speak of the devil! No this w/e was a nice slow one (relatively speaking).

Sat Morn hiked fish canyon with Ed, Oscar, Ed's date, Osacar's gal, Zoom and me. Had a great time.

Then it was down to Doheny and hang Sat Night/Sunday with a friend that rented a motor home. Had a great time.

We need a trip to Seirras - we need to find a place that has less than 6 feet of snow - It may be a bust up there this summer!

Did they have a printed label on them? If they had the double zipper they would have been at least a storage bag. I would go with the freezer bags. They will be a blue box with a lighter blue label. The storage bag box will be blue with a red label. Sandwich bags are in a blue box with a green label. I wouldn't use them for anything more than a sanwich or likewise in a lunchbag or box. Or maybe a bunch of screws or something for storage. I have them all over the garage and basement workshop.

Not sure if the newest ones are on the market yet but they have a cross-hatch pattern between the zippers. Not really anything different from the old design though other than they make a more audible sound when closing the bag.

Oh yea, when the double zippers are both zipped, they will feel level. Its easy to not get them zipped right.

Cold beer

Oh yea, I have a 40qt and a 30qt and on a very low setting if your not careful it will freeze stuff. I promise anyone who owns one of these will love them.I live in Indio and 120 temps you would want two battery's, I leave mine in my dodge diesel for a day and a half before I need to drive it or plug the fridge in to 110 ac also ARB has a insulated canvas cover thats a good investment.

Pretty impressive if you ask me.... not that you would want that done.

Oh shit! Taking my gal on a trip to bear courtyard and a bit concerned about the frig not being able to fit in a bear box! I didn't see that one coming! Has anyone had any experience with this issue?

Hmm. I have put a Igloo 40 Qt. MaxCold 40 - 5 Day Cooler (40 Qts/38 Liters/56 12 oz. can capacity.) inside a bear box before... I can't find the dimensions...

Here is a picture of a bear box that was provided in Yosemite White Wolf campground:



Those back totes are the 8-gallon action packers...

I like those action packers!

Here are some dimensions:




My frig will fit in the newer type boxes!

You probably have panther boxes there! You put small animals and children in them so they don't get attacked. On a serious note are there any reports of panther attacks in FL or are there enough small game to keep them busy?

Haha. I've honestly never heard of anybody being attacked by a panther. I've have heard of gators though.

We have people that get whacked every 5 or so years by our cats. My brother lives in Amelia Island and I kept thinking 'lots of small game and deer for the local cats!'

I love that area. Have you been to Amelia Island State Park or the drift wood beach(Little Talbot)?


Here's little talbot







I think the beach just eroded away taking trees with it. It's cool to see all the roots. It's kind of bizarre.
