frick 57! It will rut for a long time. Go with 610 as others have suggested and rent a vibratory roller that you can ride on and has a water tank. Roll it wet for a while and once it feels fairly packed, turn the vibrator on and do it some more. Roll all the way to the ends, don't stop in the middle ...

I don't know about all that. If beer were available in TS, even swill, I'd probably slow down at the tailgate. I've one-eyed many a first half until I could see clearly for the second half. ...

Agreed, I like the geaux font and I can't wait to find nike dry-fit with the tweaked helmet head. I wonder if Nike didn't put toonces on their higher end merchandise because they knew it wouldn't sell? I really can't recall ever seeing it on any dry-fit.
The only thing I own with toonces on it is...

Look for jellystone's. They are all family oriented and have clean facilities. All are different but they have things like outdoor movies, snack bars, pools, playgrounds, etc.
We stayed at a few and the kids loved it. I don't know if there's any close to you but there most probably are. They're ...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Made in Italy - a Jeep? - DLauw on 3/4/14 at 7:58 pm|
It's based on the fiat panda which, for like 15 years or so, was a very capable off-road vehicle. The jeepster and jeep commando were small off-road vehicles too. This vehicle is getting a lot of hate from the jeep people but, in my opinion, it's unwarranted. I just hope fiat has the foresight to fi...

I live on the opposite side of the state from New Orleans so our mardi gras isn't as bad as new orleans'. We go to three parades- merchants, children's and crew of crews. I'm not catholic (anymore) so I have no reason to participate other than my kids.
Favorite part of mardi gras- king cakes. Th...

With apple TV's in every room and 100mb cable we don't watch anything on regular tv until football season comes around. We still have cable because when I tried to cut it off and just keep internet, Suddenlink basically cut the cost of cable to almost nothing.
Of course, I hit my bandwidth cap (...

I'd pull the toilet and watch the drain as the shower was running to be sure the water was coming up from the drain and not seeping up from the slab. After inspection I'd replace the ring and the bolts. But if it was backing up like that I'd be worri...

It sounded like it was superior steel. Heard a boom last night too not as loud as tonight though. They had a bunch of cops and firetrucks over there a little while ago but they've all left now. I don't see how it could be them though, they're just a giant laydown yard for metal. ...

I probably would but my jeep was down since Monday with taking everything out, prep, spraying and reassembly. It's a lot of work. I don't pay to advertise on chicken's site so I'd rather not say our business name.

It's a factory lift that comes on the rubicon. I think it's only like a 1/2 inch. I'm not lifting it until I wear the tires a little more and can figure out how to hide an $8k expenditure from the wife. Sometime this year though. ...
