Re: Hiking vehicles

@LindaAnn
That's what I have had on my Tacoma for years...and I love them too. :D The handling issue was relating to having them on the SUV, not the truck.

Re: Hiking vehicles

As a follow up on tires, I had a set of Michelin LTX M/S on the RAV for years. They had nearly 80,000 miles on them with good tread left when I replaced them a couple years back (they just got too old). That is a tire designed for light trucks and SUV's and I can honestly say they were awesome. Now ...

Re: Hiking vehicles

@DixieFlyer I have an older model RAV (2001 manual transmission) and I have beaten the holy living hell out of it over the years. I still use it, along with my 1998 4WD Tacoma for the tougher chores. Those earlier models (SUV) were under powered for many road situations (mostly due to the gearing),...

Re: Monsoon On The Way!!

OK...let's get this friggin monsoon 2019 going! This one was a classic building in on outflows from the east and south. (I hate distractions when I'm watching a good baseball game on TV, but I'm lucky things weren't vaporized with all the intense close cloud to ground lightning :o ) 0.62 inch rain, ...

Well said guys. No matter how good fire is for the ecosystem, some of the changes sadden me.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

I live in the part of Tucson that hit the rain jackpot with this most recent storm (roughly about a 5 mile radius from the airport, which had the highest amount 1.21). My two day total was .88 inch. That is the second most I have recorded in May, most was .98 inch back in 1992. I most enjoyed the li...

Re: It's the Solstice!

@Jim_H
No, I can't feel it. Sunsets have been getting later since December 10th, but more importantly, Sunrises won't start getting earlier until January 16th. So, I won't "feel it" (aka fired up) until March.

Re: Hiking vehicles

Whatever you buy, just make sure it has 4WD or AWD (in the case of SUV types). If you opt for rear wheel drive or front wheel drive only, you will regret that decision in tougher road situations (this does not apply if your driving will be only on easy maintained roads). Just get the right tool for ...

I don't wash my vehicles, so it's a moot point to me. :lol: I got about half inch Tuesday evening, but the last two nights the storms have favored areas up your way.
