    Watches - ExPo Style

    I have a $29 watch from Timex and it doesn't have that little window with the date in it, but is set in a 24 hour face. I get a new one every four years as I really beat them up.

    Solution needed for no-rattle dish/cup/silverware storage

    Old wash clothes between pots, paper plates over the metal plates, and all the kitchen stuff is in individual transparent totes from Bed 'n Bath and Cub boxes from Front Runner in the drawers. Seems nothing really rattles except the exhaust pipe under the Rover.

    Sleeping bag or duvet?

    I use a sleeping bag but often open it to use as a blanket as the foam pad I sleep on is quite insulated so sleeping is quite comfortable even when it is cold (40 deg F). I don't camp in the winter. I used an old sheet and sewed it to make a cover for the pad. Keeps the pad clean.

    Harbor Freight Jack Stands Recalled for Risk of Collapsing

    I have purchased many things at HF and when paying I am always asked if I would like the additional warranty for a cost. Often that cost is very close to the price of the item. I have always declined the additional warranty. The items have always lasted far past the even additional warranty...

    DMOS Elite Shovel Review

    When I expressed my amazement that it was $300 the initial thought was what can it do that a $30 shovel can't. How light it may be is no issue as a shovel is as heavy as what is being shoveled, right? What it is made of is not as important as how long it will last getting beat on a rescue...

    New Defender Rage/Hate Thread

    I made an assumption that this section of the forum was to be devoted to Land Rovers and yet I find constant insertions that espouse distain for them and applause for other vehicle brands. Please confine praise of non LR vehicles to their devoted sections. This rage against the LR is unseemly...
