    That damned Scorpion weed got me again on the Backbone trail ride a few days ago. I recall trying to step through a patch of it when we stopped to take a break. I hate that stuff!

    Snake rescue. I found this poor thing being pecked to death by a pair of ravens. It seems to be recovering but it was almost unresponsive when I picked it up. I will keep it overnight and see how it is doing in the morning.

    Installed a 1up rack on my truck. Rad piece of equipment, though it completely obscured the license plate on my truck. I suppose all racks do to an extent, but it is blatantly and completely covered, with no way to reposition the trays. I know the 1up is a popular rack around these parts. Does it do the same on other cars, and/or has anyone caught any flack for it? I leave my rack on 24/7/365

    Ha, I almost put a disclaimer in with my post. I am not afraid to admit that I fully embrace and have come to rely on the tech features of modern cars, but for the purposes of this thread and my street cred I am going to maintain that my wife needs the back up camera when she drives the truck.

    Well, Mr. Snake made a rapid and miraculous recovery. I wasn't holding out much hope for it at all. I placed it in a container when I got home and then I checked on it a short time later and it seemed to be coming along. A little while later, it seemed back to the normal, grumpy snake that these guys are known to be as adults. It was striking at me in the container. There would be no love at all for me even though I saved the damned thing's life! :mad: So, instead of holding it overnight to see how it was in the morning (I was expecting it to be dead), we decided to release it today. My daughter and I drove over to the local foothills and set it free. But, not before I had a little fun with it. I wanted to show my daughter the hissing/striking show they put on when they are disturbed... WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW... :laugh:

    SCORPION WEED: Here's some pics. The leaves are highly variable in shape and the flowers here in So Cal are usually white but they can be a shade of purple or in between white and purple. It's in the nettles family of plants so you get stuck with tiny needles when contact is made. Beware!!! :eek:

    I have a 2018 in silver. A 2" hitch went on within 48 hours of purchase. I'll be going to Method 502's and new Cooper tires when my originals wear out. When we move to Prescott in a few years, there's no Audi dealer so we'll be getting an Outback for my wife and selling her A3 before we go.

    I have a full-size F150 and bought the Crosstrek for the same reasons you sold your 4Runner. It sits most of the time and just goes on the "big" trips when I'm loaded down with (4) guys and all their bike stuff.
