I don't care for the car. It feels small although it is a midsize. It has every bell & whistle so the wife can have this one.


It is called a Mazda 6 Grand Touring Reserve. My wife found it, test drove it, and came home and told me that is the car she wants. It has the air conditioned seats which is a requirement for her. I am not a big fan of it but it gets pretty good reviews. Happy wife, happy life.

She's happy about that. Not the other
49 things she's about to bring up.

to give them whatever they want

But he periodically cheated on her,
so he had an ulterior motive..

Electricity is not your friend, contrary to Bill Murray in Groundhog day.

I hate 12 volts dc , and it hates me right back.


I'm starting to.

Can I just run this winch off its own deep cycle? Beside trying to run 2 gauge the length of my truck without pinching or burning it, that much wire plus hardware is gonna run $300. Will a deep cycle be Good Enough to pull a rolling vehicle forward 20' and up 1'? And if I needed extra oomph in an emergency, couldn't I just jump the mf'er with a neighboring vehicle?

I'd rather spend and mount a whole gen than wire this in ><
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

Short answer, yes.

Always be on the lookout for unwanted welding leads, or large size jumper cables with worn out clamps that no one will repair.

In my own way, I was a bit of a building materials "hoarder". Working for power company's gave me access to nearly everyones backyard. I enjoy repurposing things.

Did you get the 8k?

Some of the best 1st person racing footage of any kind, I've ever seen both from the challenge point of view, and terror perspective. My bones hurt just looking at some of the rocky places one could crash. They are not wearing a hella lot of protective gear IMO. Even if you only watch first 10 minutes, you get the idea. Just when you think they can't keep going downslope, there's a another 1000 feet dropping.
