The plan malfed! Transition to your backup plan!

Shootin' Buddy having lost two tires to the angry roofing nail gods, this morning's plans have gone askew.

I reckon I will proceed to Iggle Crick on my own stick for my weekly dose of shooty goodness.

Later today, however: Yay! Airplanes!

What? I thought all HUMVEES came with run-flat tires...

Not only do humvees not come with runflat tires, SB probably would not be caught dead in one, he just doesn't seem the sort. I don't think I've ever met anyone so... practical. At least that's the impression I get. And I feel for him, having to fork over cash for new meat due to the incompetence of others is brutally annoying. I've had that experience twice this year.

Speaking of which, what is the difference between jet aircraft and jet aircraft pilots?

The jet aircraft stops whining after the flight!

That's what tire plug kits and 12V compressors are for. Unless one drives far enough or fast enough on a deflating tire to cause damage. Which is easy to do, with a low profile performance tire. Even more so with styling type overlarge diameter wheels.

I'm sure the tire industry loves these low profile and super low "rubber band" profile tires. Less materiel and less warranty claims makes for more profits.

BTW, the H2 Hummer is probably the most capable off road SUV available. The H1 HUMVEE would only beat it in conditions that most drivers would not even attempt.

Nah! BP has to be involved somehow. Obviously yet another Obama ineptitude fiasco unfolds before our very eyes.

Go airplanes!! A-26's are teh Awesomz fastest bomber in the war, most used in the Pacific.
Some were modified in the field to carry up to 22 machine guns. Imagine the sound of that - Holy Crap!

word: sarturga - regurgitated sartori.

Apparently I missed a heck of a good time. Wood screws, 2 in the front passenger tire, 1 in the back passenger tire.

Oh, well, the Montero is not long for this world anyhow.

And I'm all sunburned and stuff!

Damn, I thought the Montero looked almost new last I sawed it.

Ths coming from a man with 375,000 miles on his truck.

DirtCrashr:
Fastest US bomber. The Mosquito was faster. Think they mostly used the B-25 in the Pacific, the A-26 mostly went to Europe and the Med. Initially had a bad rep with crews. Poor training led to lots of crashes on one engine. Calling it a whore was one of the nicer tags by crews. Think it was Doolittle that began a demonstration/instruction tour of bases at the front to show the true capabilities of the aircraft. Man was incredible. Got the reputation of the plane turned around to where it became a favored ride.
