Or you can get a more aero triangular flag. Lighter and more smooth skinned flags will run higher up just fine. The whip's stiffness matters too.

I know where you're going, but I don't want a triangular flag:


This one sends the message:

FJ Obsession?

A friend of mine just bought an 08 Toyota FJ Cruiser - Brick Color. He bought the FJ primarily because he'd seen and ridden in mine and liked it. I spoke to him on the phone a week ago and he said that he was concerned that I have become obsessed with my FJ. I replied, "and when did you arrive at that opinion?" He said, "I saw your mod list on the Forum."

Does the mod list define the man (or the FJ) or does the man define the mod list?

Furthermore, he said that I seem to be spending my weekends on the Mojave Trail, heading for Colorado, criss-crossing the desert between California and Nevada hunting for turquoise or airplane wrecks. I replied, "What's your point?"

I said, "Driving the FJ in remote places is like searching for a bird's footprints in the air." It's not the finding that is important, it's all about enjoying the journey. And an FJ is a fun way to enjoy the ride. Not unlike Thoreau on Walden Pond when he wrote that men go fishing all their lives without understanding that it's not fish that they're after.

He said I was frightening him.

He called me from outside Sedona, AZ today. I asked him what he was doing there. He said, "I started driving Friday after work and kept going. I drove east from California and have been hitting trails and hanging out. I called in sick from work today and need to get home. But I'm not sure that I want to go back, I'm having more fun in the FJ than I think I've ever had."

He's frightening me.

Nice Build.
Can you describe in more detail your "Large First Responder First-Aid Kit including an adult ventelator"
A ventilator to me is a machine I use in the Emergency Dept or ICU that I hook up to a patient that is endotracheally intubated, and provides automatic mechanical breaths. Do you mean instead that you carry a bag-valve mask?

That is a great story Larry.

I would ask though, is this obsession with the FJ her self, or where the FJ takes us and the story's she tells us on those journeys. And are the mods just gifts of thanks to her for what she has done.

Yes, my error. It's now corrected.

PM sent regarding kit contents (near as I can recall).

Looks good Larry. If the exam gloves are not packaged where you can fold out the packaging and use it as a sterile field, it might be a good idea to add that to the kit. Makes it easy to spread some things out and definitely helps when cleaning wounds. Saline solution for eye irrigation might not be a bad idea either.
