I kinda want to take the Ranger on the Dalton, just to see if I could do it.

I'd need a better CB setup though. I know my radio itself it good enough because its the same one Jack from Ice Road Truckers uses. I just need better a antenna setup, something co-phased maybe (yes, I know they need to be at least 8" apart to work right).

while i enjoyed watching Ice Road Truckers ....... I think they over dramatized the actual job...... i wanted to drive the Dalton before IRT was filmed on it, but now you hve to work for Carlise for a year before they would even think about giving you a shot at the Dalton.

Cobra 29 with a K40 60" fiberglass whip would be just fine... looks like they have either 2 meter or 10 meter for any long range com.

back on track.........

I found some rockabilly girls last night but I would get banned for posting the link ......

You won't get banned for PMing it.

The only dangerous job on those ice roads is the plow guy that runs the road first. By the time those truckers head out someone already ran the road and knows the ice is safe.

And as for the droid, I love it. I had the iPhone and it is a slug in comparison. Some of that may be At&t and their networks being clogged in metropolitan areas but being able to run many apps at once helps things move faster too. If the headphone jack was bigger, or my cock smaller, I would have sex with it.

hmm, computer aids. very serious, we may have to remove the dongle, and replace the USB hub. The registry will also need a total lobotomy and virualectamy.

Make sure to run your blood through a Mr. Coffee filter to get the iron out too. Don't want to end up getting zapped every time you go out side Urkel style.
