    Welcome! What brings you to the treasure valley?

    I have no clue on shops, sorry. This is my first Toyota. Curious what others say.

    My ex-fiencee last weekend shot herself in the leg with my 357 magnum revolver and claims that someone broke into our house and did this to her. I didn't know that she has a seserious mental health problem. If she is capable of shooting herself what is going to stop ber from shooting me if she having a bad mental health day. It broke my heart to leave the one i loved. But its not worth my life.

    Hello all, ran out to the Alvord again this weekend. This took the family and the camper. First night we boondocked at Frog Springs, right on the edge of lake bed, kept us out of the dust. The second night we spent at the Alvord Hot Springs Campground. It was simple, but nice. They told us when we got there to keep an eye out for a cougar that had been sited in the campground. We didn’t see it but we did see some tracks up the mountain. There we even baby cougar tracks. The campground borders on the Steens Mountains and BLM land. On the second day of exploring we saw a group of 8 Big Horn Rams. Got a distance shot with the 200mm lens, but they are still small. Got to pull the pictures from the camera and then I’ll post one of the rams. It was fun, but it’s quite drive to get out there.5D36754D-F6E6-411B-8446-E68684BF4C5D.jpgD3AA3C08-50D8-41C4-A9FC-C55E72D983C1.jpgA2E48824-E8B0-4BFB-B6AF-754BA6A5CA92.jpgB7DDD087-D964-4BCA-A001-F62D221CE7E6.jpg

    I thought I recognized this from your live feed on Instagram. We’ve been twice and my oldest keeps bugging me to go back again.

    That was my experience in general when I was looking for a second set of wheels. But I thought they were all priced for a premium. 96 Civic for 5 grand and stuff like that.

    It was, we chased some dust devils down with the truck. The eastern side was full of dust clouds and the wind at night turned the fire into a blast furnace.

    Here is the photo of the big horn sheep. It’s a 1 to 1 crop. That’s how far away they were. C2C455C7-7299-4771-91C8-05D4DA9269E3.jpg

    Legit. My wife and I were just talking this weekend how we had never seen any big horns in the wild before. Have seen just about every other oddball animal at some point, but no rams.
