Eddie Bauer Denim Guide... Can't really take credit for the sighting. I came home to find the catalog open to page 60. Brandy had already spotted the 109. It also appears on pages 33 and 85.

Looks like what I'm guessing to be the same 130 on pages 6, 44, 82, and 90.

Another Westport, CT sighting. Anyone here? I did not get the badge number. Super clean and I think they like the steel plating...just saying.

OK, so I have two. One was from 8/13 in Downtown Denver on Larimer. Black ST with California plates. The other was at the Landmark in DTC tonight. Anyone here?

Hey Dave,

LOL, that was me parked in Larimer Square getting my Filet Oscar on at Capital Grill or a post dinner margarita at Lime. Just moved to Denver from San Diego several weeks ago. My wife and I moved to downtown Riverfront Park just west of the ballpark.

I'm glad you didn't have a Defender sighting of my truck today on the back of a flatbed. My starter solenoid went out in the Park Meadows mall parking lot. The D can make it 1,100 miles in 115 degree temperatures across the Mojave and Death Valley without a hitch, but can't quite make it to lunch and back locally. Long afternoon... Thank goodness for Triple-A. Too bad their 7 mile tow limit couldn't quite get me home.

I swore up and down I was going to sell my D all afternoon, but by the time I was home I realized it was all blasphemy, and completely in love again.

White D90 downtown Denver

There is a white D 90 frequently parked on the west side of Wazee St. between 14th and 15th in downtown Denver. Anyone here?

LOL, you're right, but I swear I drive the thing only once every week or so, and every time I look at it something breaks. Would love to meet up for the next Colorado happy hour whenever that may be! I'll try to keep a close eye on the forum.

You need the Gold or Platinum Membership or whatever it's called by AAA. That'll usually cover 50-100 miles, and in some cases I've even heard of 250 from the PA people!

Thanks for the great advice. Unfortunately, those hookers won't let me upgrade until I have had my membership for a year or something. It's coming up in January or February and I'll be the first in line!

Josh is right. That helped me when my transmission died just before the tunnel on the way back from Breckenridge two winters ago. Free tow back to Denver... it's only like $140 /yr for all my cars and includes my motorcycles (which have seen the flat bed too, unfortunately)

Finally have a sighting with photos. Saw a black 95-97 D90 on the streets of New Orleans in the CBD or Warehouse district. Which I will have when I find the photo shrinking thing.

A bit late but I saw a white 110 (not NAS) heading south on Route 89 near White River Junction in Vermont last Sunday (Aug 14th). I had just gotten on 89 North from 91. I was thinking it was a Rovers North rig as it looked like something from their Defender Sales ads.

Come to think of it I should stop by and ask them or at least make a stop especially since I've been on that side of the Notch twice so far.

I'd put money on the fact that it was Taylor Congleton driving.

Saw this guy again yesterday while walking my dog Murphy near our apt in the West Village. He had the ST on, and the front windshield folded down. He's a young dude and had shaggy hair and iPod earphones in. I was going to wave him down, but he was silent mouth talking to some dude about 30 feet away and gave him the "call me" sign with his pinky and thumb. Anyone here?

Saw a white 110 with fishing pole holders on the front bumper stopping at a light on Rt 35 south and sunrise(?) ave. Honked to get my attention, which he did and he waved as I was making a left turn onto Rt 35 north, I was driving the battlewagon.
