Thumbs up A clear THANK YOU to the D-90 site and janvil

I recently worked on my soft top windows as they were badly scuffed and had a lot of packing tape residue on them. I went through the site and asked questions; ended up going on the recommendation to try Janvil products for plastic scuffs and also glass window repair.

I have attached some pix of before and after.

Let me say, I had never hear of Janvil before and there may be other products just as good, but I am impressed. A $30.00 odd payout and it saved me a $300.00 estimate from the local repair shops.

Just wanted to say thank you to all as this site and the great people on it really help.

Good feedback on the product Paul! Marking this with a 4 star rating so it can be added to the new FAQ section.

Mt Whitney. Portal route, up to the saddle and just about to hoof it along the spine to the summit.
Mt Muir is just off to my right from the pix (though I missed the trail to that summit).

Its a nice hike.
We did 40 @ 40 in 7.
I.e. 40,000 ft for my buddy's 40th in 7 days.
Toured Yosemite then down the divide to Whitney. Rainier was last year, this year rim to rim Grand Canyon. Ever done the big C and if so, any suggestions. Oh, and damn, Mt. Whitney is one rocky Mars-like landscape!

Awesome. As I was walking up Whitney (and Rainier, too), I was thinking of how I could get the Defender up the trail. Would have taken A LOT of spotting!

"the big C"? As in Grand Canyon? I only walked down about 1/2 mile when I was 15. Considered anyone who walked lower a fool because of the hike back up the hill. I think the trails might be a little better for the Defender there, haha. Someday in the future will be a hike to the top of Mt Washington (doubt that I'll be able to convince anyone from the family to join me after the last attempt), maybe part of the Muir Trail, and Half Dome. Appalacian Trail just doesn't seem to have the same sort of grandeur as the Sierras.

I was told by the rangers that for Whitney there is a parcila route by 4x4. As you drive up the portal road (within the first 3-4 miles) look tot he left. There is an access route on the ridge. I was told you can 4x4 on it quite some way in, then dump the truck, hike a nice loop, and come back.
As to the Appalacian trial, I hear what you are saying but I disagree with popular position. The grandeur of the Sierras is increadible, but the Mountains in the Northeast are special. The rock formations, low shrubs (acres of wild blue berry fields) make for some spectacular views. I've done the Presidents and hoofing over grey/blue lichen covered granite was wonderful. Wierd thing is up there I love triskets & peanut butter. Never touch the stuff any where any time else. Childhood memories are funny things. Oh, and I am from the North east so...
