re: tOfficial Cycling Thread - billjamin
[quote]Hit that up a lot with my wife. It's amazing what they've done over the last 10 years to the trail system. I can hit Keegan's to brays bayou to columbia to downtown to buffalo bayou to white oak and back. For good casual riding and enjoying a nice day on a bike, it's hard to beat.[/quote] Ye...

re: Interesting graphic on number of power poles damaged by Ida compared with other hurricanes - billjamin
[quote]Ive also read that ground water would be a huge problem, leaking into the lines. Then at that point, as someone pointed out, it would be a nightmare determining where the problem is.

I held my arm about chest height horizontal to the ground (maybe 5ft high) with the sleeve on. It launched its body at me and the combined force of a 65lb dog at full speed knocked m...

re: Interesting graphic on number of power poles damaged by Ida compared with other hurricanes - billjamin
[quote]Not feasible at all. Not for distribution lines. Wires run on the poles are not insulated. That is by design. If cables are put in the ground they would have to increase the size of the cables and drop the voltage that they are carrying on them. Which then would increase the power needed to g...

re: Anyone here drive a 4Runner? - billjamin
[quote]What’s your budget and needs? Because there’s also the Lexus gx out there in the same ballpark. Maybe a few years old but give me that over the 4Runner any day.[/quote] I think the GX is actually cheaper than a TRD 4R. You get the V8 and a nicer but equally dated interior. The biggest down...
