    Ham wasn’t too hard as long as you study for maybe an hour a night for a week. There are even apps for it. All the questions are publicly accessible, but there’s a large pool of 400 or so.

    And yeah it’s easy to take your time while respooling. I just meant that’s the first I’ve ever truly followed that rule to a T and I was surprised how fast 30 seconds goes by while winching, and how slow it seems while waiting for it to cool. Definitely doing the stopwatch thing from now on on the trail.

    Man I’m from CA!! Never been to tejas

    All straps are clean, dry and tightly rolled, ready for the next trip. I use those reuseable twist tie things for my two shorter lines and a cam strap for big Bertha.

    I am looking at getting the kenwood one it's small and compact but should do the trick. Reasonably priced. I know you love Amazon so here's a link. I have found them from time to time on sale at actual online CB and HAM radio dealers for cheaper than amazon

    Agreed, I love them. Just never got around to buying a longer one for the purple strap! And heck no, this wasn’t fun! Since you don’t have a hose though, you’ll have to get creative with a bath tub and bucket and maybe the toilet to dump dirty water down? I dunno.

    That’s not a terrible price! Once more people start using ham I’ll pony up the cash. For now Tyler and I just use the hand helds if it’s only us.

    Ha I bet they do!! Well you should definitely clean and organize your straps then. Makes for a quick and efficient recovery.

    I think that's the one I was looking at getting, caus I want to do an antenna set up similar to my CB setup so i can be symmetrical, but nobody we go with uses HAM yet, so it was hard to justify the price of the stationary setup. Eventually I'll probably install one though.

    I have one ready to go attached to my receiver and then tossed in the bed. Since I am going again sunday this time down to gulches I think I'll wait. I am out pretty much every weekend wheeling.

    I'm going to let the kiddo!!! She helped with the skid. I am just going to prime with the rustoleum rusty metal primer then paint with a good satin or flat black. Hopefully I'll get a can of the black that actually has a good fan spray pattern unlike the can I got for my skid which was more like a stream.

    Ok @FadedComa the gauntlet has been set you gotta get your bumper on before me or I can get mine painted then come down to your place and we have a bumper putting on mod day!
