Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default My Nam buddy Red and his wifes camper.

Nice little camper well laid out for camping and traveling. Perfect for 1 or 2 people. Think he paid $18,500 plus extras like anti sway bars, 7 yr. warranty, road side assistance, etc..
Really would like to get one once this damn leg is fixed and travel the country visiting you guys. I really want to head west and dig up arrow heads and visit old west historic sites.
Do some long range shooting can't go more than a damn 100 yds here to much vegetation.

4th, your best bet to find arrowheads is on the surface in farmer's fields in the Spring. I've found hundreds of them.

There were lots of native Americans near your area before the settlers displaced them. Florida and Georgia had large populations.

Good tip thank yah Pogo. We have way old Timucun Indian, pre Seminole pottery all over the place here. White men gave them diseases and filled them with bullet holes then the Seminoles moved in and gave the White man some arrow holes.
Oh I am coming to see yah if I purchase one. I want to camp on your nice front lawn.

A motor home would be nice. Dad had one with a Dodge 440 back in the 70s.

A van would be nice but I need more room than one could probably provide? Trying to figure what my Chevy Silverado can pull. Getting a little confused on the Gross vehicle weights?
1/2 ton 2007 Silverado with 52,000 miles on it a big strong 5.3 liter engine tow package flow master pipes chip in the engine? Truck weighs 6,250 lbs. and the tow weight I think is 7,600 lbs max?

My Ford f350 has a tow weight of 12,500 lbs. on the hitch and 14,400 lbs. on a 5th wheel. It would tow just about any RV trailer there is.

Look up "EarthRoamer". That one will get you about anywhere you want to go. But it will cost you a kidney and a left nut.

The std M&S balloons on half ton PU trucks are not really rated to carry much over the stated load rating. The rear axles are not full full floating either (snap). Cooling systems are not really designed for heavy use. A half ton is OK for intermittent light loads but they are maxed out very quickly with a real load. Trucks are like dicks....having a big one... is never a bad thing.
