    I believe it was actually here in MA at Lexington/Concord, but whatever. It's good to hear from some Taco fanatics in the area.

    The first shot for freedom was fired in Rhode Island on June 9th 1772.

    The sloop Hannah tricked the HMS Gaspee into running aground on what is now named Gaspee point. That night under cover of darkness men from Providence rowed out, boarded the ship and captured the crew. Refusing to surrender, the Captian was shot and mortally wounded before being removed from the ship which was then burned to the waterline where she sat.

    Alright, cool. Never heard that story Roland. Murphman, How do you like your '08? Any issues with the leaf spring TSB?

    No issues so far. Pushed the tongue weight a couple times and didn't bottom out the leafs. Hoping I already have the latest. The truck was still in plastic when I picked it out back in March. Honestly, been a great pleasure to own and drive - I really love it.

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    There are lots of things to like about good 'olde Rhody, the Woonsocket area has some of the best fried clams around. Providence is a great city to visit, Rhode Island has a very nice airport, certainly better than Logan. Paw Sox and the Baby Bruins.

    I like sitting on the seawall at Flo's in Portsmouth eating fried clams. Kinda pricy though.

    Hmm, Rhode Island....been to Mt St. Charles, Brown, and Salve Regina for hockey games. Also a few restaurants including some fancy beach club right on the ocean for brunch. The students at Salve live some fancy dorms thats for sure!

    Welcome aboard Frisbie. Woo Hoo another Rhode Islander! I'll have to reextend my invite for people to come sailing when the boat goes back in next year. (If they don't close the state.)

    Hey Roland...I'm up for a sail anytime! I have a boat too...without sails though. Maybe we could trade; sailing lessons for fly fishing lessons. My wife and I have taken a few sailing lessons in years past; looking to get back into it next season.

    I used to fly fish but haven't done it in years. I get really tempted to dust off a cheap rod and toss some pan fish poppers at the snapper blues.
