  1. Do your diligence before you mess with D8. Look at the process used to make it and decide if that is right for you. Personally, I don't want to put anything in my body that is made by soaking a natural product in acid to turn it into something else. In my opinion the only benefit of D8 over regular marijuana is that I can walk into any "CBD shop" and get all the D8 I want.
  2. I'm ready to go because I never bothered changing mine after Christmas last year.
  3. I'm thinking of going with a Double Cab next time. That 5.5 ft bed kills me. This is the first truck I've ever had that I didn't have a toolbox in the bed of. The ample room behind the back seat kind of makes up for it, but I certainly can't make do with a 4 foot bed, so no toolbox. When I go hunting I need to take my camper and a 4 wheeler. I have a Honda Recon and a Rincon. I normally take the Rincon, but it's a chore to get situated. I have to strap my generator to the rear rack of the four wheeler, put car ramps in the front of the bed, then pulled all the way forward the rear wheel will be right on the edge of the bed. (Without the ramps the rear tires are in the bumper) Once in, there is zero room for anything else in the bed. A gas can, and a 5 gallon bucket with the camper's stinky slinky and accessories go in each floor board. With the Recon I can pull it in the bed of the truck, no ramps needed in front of bed, put it to one side of the bed and still have room for the generator, fuel can, and bucket. With the Recon I could probably even close the tailgate. The holy grail that I will likely never find to my liking would be a low mileage 07-08 Double Cab with the 8 foot bed. Discontinuing the 8 foot bed is one of several bones I would like to pick with Toyota. Other bones I have to pick with Toyota: 1) stupid low payload rating in Tundra. 2) another 6-8 mph would be reality nice out of the 5.7. Fords see those numbers, still wouldn't trade for a Ford though. 3) no 3/4 or 1 ton options.
  4. We are a Toyota household here as well. I'm in a 2012 Tundra Crewmax and wife drives a 2021 Sequoia TRD Pro. This is my second Tundra with the first being a 2004, both have been great vehicles, only reason that I upgraded was towing capacity. My current plan, and I will reevaluate, when the time comes: sell my current Tundra when it hits 200k and buy one that's 5~ years old with 100k~. Reason being it doesn't seem like these trucks loose a lot of value between 100-200k but they start to loose value after 200k. For example, I drove my 2004 Tundra for 7 years and put 100k on it. I sold it for $1,500 less than I paid for it. Paying a couple of grand to use a vehicle for, especially one you like, for a few years is pretty decent business in my opinion. I'll also add, in the 7 years that I owned the 2004, other than routine preventative maintenance the only thing that truck ever needed was a coil pack and a wheel bearing. Not bad for the second 100k of it's life. I sold it to a friend and he absolutely abuses it (saw him tow 18k pounds with it) and it's still going strong.
  5. I've missed your posts over the past few years and have wondered where you got off to. Heck of a story, glad you made it out relatively alright.
  6. No good deed goes unpunished and whatnot.
  7. Hunting dogs are almost never spayed, and there is no way to tell. So you can do is keep an eye on her and keep her put up if she goes into heat. Almost certain that the dog was beat, keep doing what you are doing and it will come around. Be generous with the treats too.
  8. I have no plans of buying an EV anytime soon. That said, I recently rode in a Tesla and it was an absolute mind blowing experience. I'm a recovering car/motorcycle/speed junkie. The only thing that I can compare that I've driven/ridden to the acceleration of the Tesla was my old GSXR1000. I was in the front passenger seat and had my sunglasses on top of my head, the driver hit the "gas" my sunglasses were on the back dash. The auto driving feature was really cool too, but it's unsettling to see the driver throw their hands up in the air while going around a curve. The computer interface is pretty amazing as well. It allows you to see everything going on with the car. It was one of the coolest car moments that I've experienced.
  9. I've had several. I had to seek medical attention for two of them. The worst was 4.5mm. I was delirious from the pain. Apparently, I called my mom she told her that I thought that I was dying and I was going to the hospital. She was alarmed because I normally resist medical attention and the fact that I wanted to go to the hospital worried her. She encouraged me to call an ambulance and I told her that I could drive their fine because it down hill all the way, makes sense right? The second time I had one that required medical attention I was driving to Destin, Fl for a week long vacation. A dull, but persistent pain was lingering in my lower back. I spent the next week hobbling between the beach and the hotel room. That one wound up being 11mm and requiring surgery, but the pain wasn't nearly as bad as the 4.5mm stone. As for the pain, the best way that I can describe it is having your boys in a vice while someone twists a rusty soon into your gut. Couple of things I've found that seem to help 1) 50/50 mixture of lemon juice and olive oil, a shot glass at a time, as needed. 2) drinkk lots of water and/or cranberry juice (real stuff, not the sugary junk) 3) A doctor probably wouldn't tell you to do this, but get some beer with as low of an alcohol content as your can find (I always liked Budweiser 55, but I'm not sure that it's still made, Keystone is also pretty low alcohol) drink as much of it as possible. You are loading up on fluids to push the stone around and the alcohol acts as somewhat of a pain reducing agent.

    legal or no?

    Mostly true. If your grandson is a Tennessee resident you are good to go. If he resides in another state then legally it would need to be transferred through an FFL.
  11. This article needs more pictures, I don't read too good.
  12. I have refused to buy much of anything from Walmart since they decided that they would only carry the calibers of ammunition that they like.
  13. Way over my head, I do enjoy your post though.
  14. I don't have anything for sell at the moment, but for budget ATVs a Honda Recon is very difficult to beat. I have one that I paid $500 for about 5 years ago, I've put tires and brakes on it and beat them everliving $h!t out of it and it just keeps going. I will probably never sell it. My buddy has a similar Kawasaki that is always broken. That said I just came into a Honda Rincon 680. I didn't think that I would like it because of how big it is. I hunt/ride just North of Sparta, lots of steep hills. The 4wd on the Rincon and it's wider stance makes it much easier to ride in changing terrain.
