    My brother and I went out to go shooting after work today. Stopped by a local county yard (no fences, signs, nothing) where they have a bunch of mil surplus stuff. We were poking around and discovered a bunch of different michelin military tires. Andy will prolly post pix later. We're going to try to get our grubby mitts on some. :D Impossible to find now due to the war I guess. If we can get a bunch, anyone want some?

    Also ran into a little storm/flooding. Had a blast. He should have some pix of that up too.

    Yah that Nissan Pathfinder is the dirty whore that wont die. Its seen more airtime than the Blue Angels and been flat out run into alot more **** than it should. In place of the camper shell, now they have the hood from a jeep cherokee supported in the front by two crutch legs and screwed onto the back with a few sheetmetal screws.

    cegusman, we have a place here in Houston and Warton that sells military tires. I have seen the 36's, 37's, and the 16x1100 tires and this was just week. You just have to pick through them to get a good pair, and they are between $50-$150 depending on the tire. So if you are interested let me know, or you can get my # from robert.

    later
