    I hear ya on the spotter. I try to get my wife to go. Absolutely NOT anymore. She can NOT stand sitting in the truck for hours on end.

    I try to convince her that it's not that bad if she'd just get out and SHOVEL! :D

    Man with all the stuff you guys bring I guess I'm packing lite. All I bring is my cell phone, fire pager, and wallet.

    I've learned to bring about 5 empty 5 gallon gas cans. In this tight pocket area some gas stations stopped me for a one time clean up but wanted to pay with gas..... That sounded good at first but i always have my truck full. I started telling them I had a 25 gallon minimum. It wasn't too bad on the days that weren't cold. Obviously you can only do 1 every once in a while.

    I keep a tow strap in the truck. It's alot warmer in the cold.

    EyeSell that's one nice amp. My ole ladies cousin has one and they sound very clean. What i like about them is that they are not flashy. Even their radios look old styled and crappy but don't judge a book by it's cover.

    Thanks man, one nice thing about it is it's crystal clear, I paid $ 2k for it about 5 years ago, the damm thing weights about 35lbs, best of all its 5 a 5 channel amp so the extra channel powers my center speaker for the 5.0 surround.
