    Wow! A few days ago it looked like the 60+ thread had gone dormant, but things are hopping now.

    Just the way I like it. :bananadance:

    I jump to conclusions, exercise my rights, and stretch the truth. :)

    I do a light workout most days - 50 pushups, 80 sit-ups, 40 oblique crunches to each side, 40 normal crunches, several other stretching exercises and then 2 sets of 4 arm and shoulder exercises using 5 pound weights. Then I try to get in at least 20 to 30 minutes of walking. Nothing hard...except keeping myself motivated to do it.

    I saw the picture of the "stretch" Tacoma...but when a Toyota Tech asks "Short or long bed?" wouldn't they be referring to a 5' or 6' bed Tacoma?

    There was a nube that had trouble in Virginia. A guy drove a couple hours (each way) to help. @EatSleepTacos If I recall correctly.

    The only issue.... They rolled it inside out and backwards when the packed it at the factory. I had to unroll it, turn it around, and then place it. Minor PITA. It looks robust, fits great. The Exped SynMat Duo M fits well between the wheel wells. :thumbsup:

    When we hunted Maine we would always try to help someone who was a "dumb ass"! Some of the places we hunted had culverts ripped out, bridges missing, big iced over water puddles, drainage ditches off the side of the road, North Woods roads that weren't plowed, logging trucks coming down the middle of the road where they have the right of way, etc.! One time we drove through a flooding stream to get a buck that one of the guys had shot, you do what you gotta do! The next "dumb ass" that needed help might have been us, so it was kind of like a pay it forward thing.

    Worst weather for camping around Memorial Day weekend I think I have ever seen. It can sometimes be wet, but not for this long. Been for a week or so now, extending into next week. Good year for me to not have a garden.
