    Any of you guys have the Amazon Echo? My FIL got one for us for Christmas and it finally arrived. Pretty cool machine and the sound is good.

    Haha more of a cylinder but yeah. It's pretty cool, you can ask it to play music, audio books, ESPN radio and a bunch of other stuff. Also set timers, add items to a shopping list and ask questions you want to know the answer to. The music is what I'll use most but it's also doing a timer for my daughters hard boiled eggs right now.

    stuff
    Picked up a whole bedroom set for my mom tonight. Ended up fitting the spare in the backseat. Looking forward to not doing that.
    Only downside is can't haul with the tailgate down. Rarely haul my own shit anyway. Want that couch moved?!? Buy a truck!

    It definitely not ideal but you still could, most swing outs lock at 90* throw a ratchet strap on there and you could haul something with the gate down. Not the safest but it's possible.

    Easy enough as well to pull the swing out off the spindle. Will take some extra time, but will work if you really need the extra space.

    Ended up returning the Cobra and ordered the Midland. The Anytone unit looked great- 8 watts was appealing. Decided that I like the handheld feature of the Midland though. Thanks for all the info!

    I had the midland for the christmas tree run but thought it was kind of bulky. Just returned it and debating if I want to go with the Cobra 75WXST all in one unit or just get a cheaper unit and install a speaker somewhere.

    That was the one I bought. It worked well just wanted something where the hand held unit was a little smaller. Leaning towards the all in one cobra (this was my first choice but because I ordered last minute before the x-mas tree run, I went with the midland because it was going to arrive on time).

    What's your mission? I have to go to Sparks on Friday, but if your wheeling in the snow, I'd be interested in tagging along on Saturday.

    just to go screw around and check out Tahoe for the day. Woman wants to see the snow and figured tahoe was safe enough that i could get there, around and back and have a little fun and get some pics. I got a friend coming with me as well to join in as well.

    I checked that one (Cobra 75WXST) out at Frys. Much bigger & heavier than the standard mic. Not sure how it will compare to the midland. Mine arrives tomorrow.
    I'll just be happy to be able to communicate with the front of the line. We had a 45 minute stop and didn't know what was going on.
