Re: burning man

That's true at the actual event, however the admission is very expensive. Somebody's making money off of that. I had a co-worker that tried to buy tickets on e-bay after it was sold out. They were...

Re: burning man

Burning Man is a real mixed bag. It's gotten so expensive and so "cultish", that you have everything from the absolute bottom of the barrel, always filthy and poor hippie, to the highly paid Dr.'s,...

Re: What Inflatable Kayak should be for Ocean?

I've never tried it, but some of the whitewater inflatable kayaks look pretty robust. Talking to the whitewater folks in my area, they call them IK's or "Rubber Ducky's". They have a reputation for...

Re: gws attack in Manhattan beach

Regardless of whether or not the fisherman was criminally liable, this is the state of CA, where civil suits rule the day. With that in mind, it seems to me a good civil attorney could use this...

Re: Savage rifle frustration!

Does indeed sound like a mag issue, but since I did pull the gun apart and put it back together, there's a strong possibility it's a faulty owner issue too!:D

Re: Savage rifle frustration!

Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

My next trip to the coast, if the swell's decent, I'm gonna try surfing my gen 2 BB boogie board style. I think it'll work really well for that. Certainly has more float than my boogie boards!

Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

My board, as well as all of my kayaks, are bright orange for the reasons Diablo mentioned. I've also found a flag invaluable for finding my board. It's amazing how little swell it takes to block...

Re: Banksboard 1 or 2?

I'm not sure there's a "3". I believe there is a first and second generation of the first, smaller hull, and then there's the "2", which is the bigger hull.

So far, I've been able to clip my...

Re: I could picture a bloody fish on the hood.

I remember fishing with my dad back in the 60's and watching the old water cars of the day drive down the boat ramp and out onto the lake.
Modern version of a very old idea.

Re: What's a Limited edition JBL sawed-off magnum worth?

Since it might have more value as a collector's item than a working gun, maybe contact Guy Skinner at JBL. He might be interested in it for display?
