You really need to come out west. You'd be amazed what is still on the roads here. Where do you think Ron got that pristine Scout?

"The packy" - now that is a term I haven't heard since going to college with a bunch of eastern MAssholes. That and "the bevy". Both said with a wicked Boston accent.

He probably thinks we are all part of the boost/3rd brake light crowd.

Rob, that was my truck. I must have wheeled with you at Eric's event. Sorry I just can't put a face to a name. I traded it in on a F250, which was the first half of getting my family into camping. I bought a fifth wheel shortly after. Now we go camping with air conditioning and a king size bed. Much more my wife's way of camping. I thought that they would enjoy off roading much more, but it's hard to do family events in a D90 with 3 kids and a dog at the time.

And to show you that the world's even smaller, there was a Jimmy Padgett on my first boat (about 12 years ago). Probably the same guy.

Yes! I ended up catching up with Jimmy later, and is a good guy...and also yes, that truck is well loved (almost as much as mine : ).

Saw a ROW 110 going east on Highway 33 towards Harrisonburg, VA today. Gray paint and loaded down with tent or some gear on top. No time for pic but good looking rig.
