I always said the same thing until I bought a truck. It's much easier to reverse in a spot.

I've also always hated truck drivers. I still do.

Or you can just get an old wooden door and float on top of it. Titanic-style.

I just did this too. Definitely wasn't that great. I had to focus too much on standing on the damn board. I got on the water to relax. I much prefer my kayak.

It was great until about 2:59. I was able to score some tickets too! It was loading just very slowly. I had to be patient. I'm happy with my seats too.

Just moved into a new house and this is in the backyard! How do I use it? by dimemarie in grilling

Seems like a simple grill. You can use wood or charcoal. The ceramic bricks indicate that only that center part of for cooking. I think the sides are just decorative. Seems pretty small. Maybe it was used for something else.

Video showing racist bully getting kicked out of casino then continuing to threaten victims until they shoot him; found justified under Florida's Stand Your Ground defense. 3:59 by KeyedCarr in watchpeopledie

[–]ciscotree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It seems pretty obvious to me that the white car was trying to cut off the shooters car. He creeped down the aisle and yielded to the first car. and waited for the shooters car to approach. He had a stop sign and tried to roll through it to cut off the shooters car. You can see him slow roll and then accelerate as the shooters car approaches the intersection. The shooter car stopped to avoid the accident.

[–]ciscotree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man, back in the day, I drove to Harlingen for Arbys when they had just closed the one in McAllen. Turns out they closed all of them in the RGV. I ended up eating at Chilis.

I'm thinking it's Palo Pinto Mountains. Although calling it "mountains" is stretching it. Would have been more appropriate at Guadalupe Mountains.

[–]ciscotree 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maybe removing a burn ban isn't a top priority when the area is flooded?
