FWIW - I'm now a huge fan of the Harbor Freight transmission jack I picked up last year. It makes removing and re-installing the house battery an easy task. Maybe you can rent or borrow a...

Ever since a break in, we use a 12L Pacsafe portable safe and lock it to the front seat. Throw laptop, GPS, etc in there.

Hi all!

I'm not a very active forum member, and far more of a reader than poster, but I figured it was time for a brief introduction.

Re: Colorado Time??
