    Finally, got my "first 4x4" in a Tacoma. Barcelona Red w/ JBL & Entune - Then traded it in on a Ridgeline.

    Tonight (06-14-2013) ... NBC National Evening News .... did a good story on "USCG Rescue Swimmers" and their duties & training.

    You can probably find the news clip on it on NBC's website.

    Kudos to you guys and the crews that make the rescue missions possible ... :D

    Just kidding. Those guys are beyond hardcore. I already knew that movie with kutcher did it no justice at all. I would love to be a rescue swimmer but could never make it through that school.

    I liked that movie. Unrealistic and cheesy, but good.
    My old roommate is a rescue swimmer and always give him crap about it.
    That course is no joke though. I think in the movie the graduating class had over 15 people in it. Guess how many people were in my roommate's graduating class......

    One!!! It was him. Pretty funny ceremony.
