Again, thanx to everyone for the congrats.

17" 08 Rims for Jeep JK

Not likely, but if anyone needs a full set of 17" rims for an 08 JK or whatever (I needed to change to a different offset) I have them available. They have the senders for the Low Pressure lite on them. Any reasonable offer. Brucek@socal.rr.com

General license

Well I finally got my General. This has been a long standing promise to Dave K6DTK and this New Years he called in his marker so I went ahead and did it. I had been procrastinating for some time but I try not to make false promises. I hate to toot my own bagpipe but I got 100% on the test. Now I jus...

That was a very dangerous situation you put yourself in, and it could have turned out much worse - a good example of why you always need to be prepared for a worst case scenerio, with clothes, food, water, blankets, etc if you are going to make a trek off the beaten path in bad weather.[/quote Just...
