    I've seen this guy in RI a few times that literally just drives his small box truck to the break. Scared the piss out of me the first time, I was walking through the parking lot toward the beach and right as I walked past the truck, the rear door slid up and out stepped a wetsuit-clad elderly guy. Beats getting changed in the cold wind I guess.

    I will, General Lee, I will....it's just that Assateague was pure goodness & fun from March through late September that I just stayed up north. Then a nor-easter just toasted the bars. After several post-concussive closeout sessions at AI in October, and a demolished finbox, I'm looking south again.
    Keep that N wind down & there's still hope.

    Man i dont get the crappy mileage all these new SUV whatevers are getting these days. I mean damn my FJ40 has a small-block 327 out of a 68 camaro and gets 17 MPG and its pretty heavy. Just $hithouse in my book....

    There are of course always those who can't seem to conform to popular convention. I take my 12 kids to the beach in a bus.
    Well said WCS. But please, for the love of Roy, get it right: 12 people. Roy gave birth to 12 people (says he). So you take your dozen people to the beach in a bus. Which I hope is powered by a Detroit Diesel turbo. GVWR of 46,000+ stone (is that what "unit" NZ uses?) when you put a single Hot Karl on it along with all those...people.

    What do you mean..."you people"?!?!

    Ah, THERE he is! My stalker troll has emerged from his dark & sweaty lurking action.
    Don't get jealous, Clemmy; you've still got the other members of your troll stalker posse, namely, the gnome, chucka-boo-boo & wayne the insane.
