Big Rig

8 posts in this topic

Posting this here cause one of our regulars runs a big rig...Benelli Dude.

Check out the DVD "Big Rig" and see what our truckers deal with...high gas prices, govt. regulation, etc.

Hats off to the men and women who make our economy run.

Thankfully I am company driver so the only expense that comes out of my pocket is what I spend on food. Everything else the company covers. Go to the west coast and back in 4 days driving team. Only job I know that you get paid to sleep. Love them mountain states. By the way its less than 2 months til Ontario duck season. Bring it on!

At my local video store. It won a bunch of awards at film festivals. They make the point that if the truckers went on strike, the entire economy would shut down in three days. Has some good truckin' music, too.

I have taken out 14 deer with chrome since I started driving. Even a few nice bucks. Cant slow down like you can in a car. I seen bumper stickers on trucks that read " Without trucks America stops!" lot of truth to that.

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
