I have had an OMM card since 06. It's nice when your Doctor tell you it's OK to inhale.

If I had gotten my whizzer back in 1972 I would not have one today. I had wanted a whizzer ever since I was a 13 year old kid delivering news papers in LA.

OK...OK...it's time for me to break my usual silence and speak up since the idea of a tandem trailer has been mentioned. I brought this subject up about 5 years ago (under the thread "re-formatting an old housetruck to pull a housetrailer" May 2005) so thought I would repost what I said back then so...

Sharkey...

I was sad when I read the news about Trace. I know you have lost a very close friend. There a lot of people supporting you and we care about you, so lean on us when you need to.
