When I became unemployed I inherited an iPhone 5s from my daughter. She replaced it when the battery wasn't holding a good charge. I replaced the b...

I have a 2000 Nissan Frontier. Great truck, only lacking 4WD. So good a vehicle that in my search for a 4WD I haven't found anything "used" better than it so I keep what I have.

Re: Mountainsmith Day Lumbar pack review

Looks like a great option, with fantastic upper back ventilation. Looks like maybe the hand straps could get snagged but could be cut or somehow strapped to prevent that. Thanks for sharing.
