Merry Christmas to me!!

Santa did good this year and I get to have fun next week. Just scored a bunch of goodies for the rig.

Super Track spacers (the new CorrecTracks), Firestone Ride Rite air spring kit and a Scan Gauge 2.

Hopefully will have a decent afternoon w/o too much snow next week to install the spacers/airbags seeing how I don't have a garage just yet...if we get a bunch of snow screw the install I'm going skiing...

Anyone else treating themselves or their rigs to a X-Mas goodie or two??

Happy Holidays!

Nothing as fancy as what you just got. But I did buy a diesel locking gas cap from Napa auto parts for the SMB last week!

I rented my SMB a garage (with a house for her people) but she won't get to try it on until Dec 28th.

I'm heading toward yosemite for a stupid type camp session through Christmas then off to...? Any suggestions? Where can I go? DV? Coast? Never really been out of Ca for the most part (led a sheltered life), so where is a good spot to visit out of state?

Hum? I don't think so.
Where's an SMB to go? Don't say anywhere .
Really any suggestions that are close? Might involve some friends with tents.
Dave.

Sedona AZ. A few movies have been made there, but more were made in the Mounument Valley area of AZ. Sedona is absolutely beautiful, but you'll have to have a lot of tolerance for crystal wearing, incense burning, new age mystical wannabees. Quite pricey too.

I'd still recommend it if you get away from the crowds.

Just picked up the sPod from John this afternoon. This will allow controlling six switched items. I just installed 4 work lights up top and will hopefully install the sPod early this week. BTW John, the owner is super helpful and very nice meeting me today, Christmas Eve. I will photograph it as I install it and post photos here.

Also picked up a set of used Lightforce 240 Blitz lights. I'm happy.
