    Is that a tow bar attached to a GM product? For shame those should only be seen on a Heep! LOL! GM's never need towing only Furd's do!

    Kool Idea though especially if you blow out the drive train or motor on a serious trail head!

    Correction: THAT is a very stout custom made tow bar that Rene built to pick up a Blazer from Rocko in Texas and tow all the way back to Canada. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I think he said the whole round trip was something like 4700+ miles, so, at least for half of that trip, the tow bar held up just fine. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    He did experience some of the famous Kans-Ass weather while driving back home thru the state. He was somewhere north of Wichita on I-35 and at the same time there was a tornado on the ground. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif He said he was doing 90 mph while towing the Blazer, to get away from the twister. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    He stopped by my place on the way down and then again on the way back. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    time for scanner lessons though Wes.
    you dont have to scan the entire platter, you can specify just the pictures by dragging a box around the area you want scanned after previewing.

    It took me awhile to figure out the scanner too, Wes. If it's anything like mine, you can do all kinds of cool stuff.

    Yeah, I was glad the pic of the tow bar came out good because I took two pics of it and the other one did not fair so good. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif/forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I agree! Two ugly guys and a dumb dog walking in front of us. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Mike, Eric, please do give me tips on the scanner thingie. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    It took me about a half hour just to get those pics scanned and saved. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Probably take me another half hour or longer just to figure how to chop the pictures, too. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
