I wouldn't argue with that kid - looks like he'd pop a cork in your ass just to show you he can.

Great pics.

Actually, JSBriggs is correct. The original was by Bob Dylan.

The song has achieved that level of infamy for both OCMS in the indie-folk realm, and Darius Rucker in the popular-country realm where every fan thinks that the first version they heard is the original.

That article doesn't go into detail but I've read elsewhere Dylan wrote just the melody and OCMS wrote the verses. My musical vocabulary isn't great so I hope I'm saying that right. The OCMS version was incredibly popular while was in college so most people my age were luckily exposed to the original.

Anyways back to sightings. My buddy saw this in the Destin area earlier this week. I wanna say it was for sale on here a couple months ago

It's got a sick Ashcroft (I believe) underdrive that just allows it to crawl at a snails pace offroad. Very cool, hopefully the new owner knows how to work the bells & whistles.

Love that truck. Was that a recent pic? gonzanc bought that truck, and I thought he had been selling off a ton of the stuff that came with it.

Yep. Either this past weekend or earlier this week. I couldn't imagine selling stuff off that truck, I think it's about perfect as-is

I think he was seeing what he could get for the wheels/tires, but I don't believe he was selling anything else off the truck.

Last he said was he was cleaning up the interior. The sliders in gonza's for sale post aren't off Kip's old truck.

He had listed a ton of stuff, so it was hard to tell if it was coming from the truck itself or if they were surplus. There were ARB switches and stuff, gauges, Badger top, etc.

So random. I just saw an Arles Blue D90, parked in the same spot that Andre usually parks his Arles truck...but it wasn't Andre's. 1995 SW 188/500 with a rack.

Here are more pics of it. It looks like it just sold a month ago out of San Jose, CA for $30k-ish. I remember this popping up recently, but I thought it was more than a month ago.

I had heard that Bob Dylan had written it, but I've never heard him sing it...I'll have to track that one down.

Dylan version, like most of his singing, sucks. OCMS is an awesome group live. It's one of the best concerts I've ever been to, besides some Widespread Panic shows back in the 90's!

Rovers and Phish?

Went rafting with friends yesterday and caught this on the back of my friend Dani's Phish shirt. Was very excited- friends were not.



I then had to correct one of the guys at the canoe shop that it was a Land ROVER, not a Land Cruiser.
