    Understandable.... if your tires can allow you to get down to around 10psi would help climb it, power up slowly, let the A trac try to do it's thing, all fails, as one of my buddies says skinny pedal!

    No joke. The earthquakes have been increasing in frequency over the course of the last 2 months. Couple of weeks ago had one that really shook the house. I thought I left earthquake central when I left SF. They seem to be following me... doh!

    Had little ones in the sierras my entire life. I figured out there's no place away from shakers. There are little ones everywhere in California. Coast and sierras seem to be the better spots to feel them.

    They feel different transmitted through rock than soil/sand. Rock makes for a sharper jolt. Soil it’s like a freight train rumbles through building then fading away.

    It would probably not be a good time to tell you the ‘89 quake was preceded by a number of smaller quakes over a period of a couple of years...

    It has definitely been a year of increased seismic as well as volcanic activity throughout the world.

    Yeah no joke. Mammoth has been active too.


    We’re one of the last spots on the rim of fire who hasn’t had a major quake in the last decade or so... hold onto your hats!

    It took some rock stacking and few bumps, but he did. Everyone got stuck on that one even solid axle rigs with 38s, so this 4runner with IFS and 33s did amazing

    In case someone is looking for a battery setup for their fridge.

    I did a bunch a reviews and research for about a year.

    I saw a deal at Costco for a Mossimo brand...I was like ehhhhh....didn’t get my attention.

    a few days prior the Memorial weekend’s camping trip I saw a pretty damn good deal at Costco. ECO Flow River Pro 600 (720ah) for $429 with free shipping. Or $699 with an extra add on battery pack boosting the pow wow to a whopping 1440ah.

    With Costco’s return policy, it’s a no brainer. Unfortunately it did not arrive on time for my trip. Ordered on Wednesday and arrived Saturday before end of day.

    Now for the meat and potatoes. Out of the box I charged that baby up within 1.5 hours. This fast charging feature works like a charm is is legit.

    I plugged my ARB Zero 47QT into the battery pack. Set the temp at 32 degrees and left it in the garage.

    I got a solid 31 hours of non stop runtime with an average draw of 40 watt draw while the fridge is running.

    I am satisfied and happy with this purchase. I’m glad I didn’t spend $699+ for similar battery packs that are out in the market.

    Rightfully so! I once stuck my hand inside a water shut off valve box and ended up with 3 black widows on my hand. None of them got me but I think I had diahrrea for like a week from fear. :p
