Why choose between your fishing gear and your snow gear when you can get it all in one?

When did you hear of this? I just was talking to a Ford sales guy on Thursday and asked - his reply was nope..
But then again I took a Explorer test drive and they gave me tickets for the prior year... :@

Pretty darn clever and funny! I like what Abel says at the end...

Yeah, it played during the Laker game.

P.S. Filed under ShiftyRider needs to switch to decaf, but...
Is voice-of-the-Lakers Bill Macdonald dumber than Shemp from the Three Stooges? What I'm talking about is how he ALWAYS says MWP instead of Metta World Peace or World Peace. Look, dude, it's shorter that way if you write it, but not when you speak it. Plus you're defeating the whole purpose of why he changed his freaking name! Argh!!! (I feel better now...)

Personal deja vu moment, but...
Just like saying "A 'W' is a 'W'" instead of "A win is a win."
I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

^ Heh...couldn't make it today, but "shooting" for tomorrow. Then it will be 66° in Bishop!


Well lunch this afternoon at Mahogany Smoked Meats' deli was delicious, but it was super windy down in Bishop today and a bit chilly. When we looked at the wx it was supposed to be 66, but with the wind chill it definitely wasn't. We shot in the most wind protected area of the Bishop Gun Club (membership is only $25 a yr. - you can get an application in a box at the locked front gate), but it was still too windy for me to shoot my 22 so SG shot our two 12 gauge shot guns. One was his grandfathers and the other is a Mossberg pump action he bought last summer, but has only shot it once. Both are too big, heavy and long for me to shoot. Anyway, it was even hard to keep the targets up due to the wind! I took photos/videos of him and was the range caddy picking up the casings and targets before we left. We stayed 2 hours then came home with grit in our eyes and teeth! :D We'll go back on a calmer, warmer day so I can shoot. :)

It's called exercise, and it is a lot of fun where I live and I cant wait to get dropped off at Grant
Lake this year and ride my SUP from the boat ramp to the far end of the lake to get picked up.

One of the best whole body work outs ever, and your on the water in a peaceful setting,
going as fast or slow as you want.

OR You could hang out with sweaty smelly grunting men at the Gym.
Sweaty not so smelly not grunting women at the Gym is a whole different story ;)

Like Snowman posted...SUP also is a insane core workout...

Also sitting out in the middle of a lake on a board with the sound of water and people having fun is just epic and the stress just melts away.

SkierBob my SUP has tie downs for a small cooler of beer also.


Only problem I have with using an SUP on a lake is .. I tend to prefer to sit down rather than stand. I dig the whole core-workout-aspect-rationale-thing,tho.

I've just spent too much time rowing over the years, I suppose. You know ... old habits..

These doggone SUP dudes remind me of those rebellious upstart snowboarders back in the day!

SUP punks, I tells ya!!!
