I love it but I've always wanted a crew cab short bed manual duramax. And mine is half paid off and worth about double what I owe on it so I've been considering changing things up.

see some on CL any downside to buyng a 250$ kayak and usuig that? why are some 3 feet and some 14 foot. which is better.
I agree, keeps throwing me off as a sticky. We will all get used to it.

Long vs Short- up to you. Some pros and cons to each

Shorter Kayaks
Easier to turn and maneuver.
Able to make quicker turns.
Best for estuaries, small lakes, rivers; less suitable for long trips.
good on smaller bodies of water.
Weigh less.
Less affected by winds.
Less cumbersome to transport.
A bit slower.
Good for kids and small adults.

Longer Kayaks
Easier to paddle over long distances (once you get them up to speed).
Able to hold a straight line better to stay on course.
Best for open water
A bit heavier.
Able to carry heavier loads with less performance loss.
Glide farther per stroke for greater efficiency.
Move faster.
Hold more gear.

A good resource for kayak info is from REI
And I see nothing wrong with buying a used kayak from CL. In fact, I have my 14 footer up on CL now. Looking to downsize, as I am just not able to get out on the water enough to justify storing a 14 foot kayak. When I was out on it every weekend, and most week days in the summer- the longer one is where its at!

I'm confused Jesse, what do you mean you are going to pay the difference and just get the car painted?

Vs just getting the front fixed, im going to pay the difference and get the whole car painted as long as I can afford it.
I still have to source a bumper and non blinker fender or just weld in the blinker whole.

Ya sorry thats what you said before, and I just don't understand what difference you are paying. I'm very much used to the auto insurance I had in Manitoba, and over there you bring your car in, get an estimate, and then you can choose to get it fixed wherever you want. They give you claim forms to give the shop. The shop then bills the insurance company directly, and they will also ask for more money if it costs more than the estimate. But my point is there is no way around repairing exactly what was damaged unless you just don't make a claim.

His insurance will send me a check and I do with it as I choose.

And can we sticky the archived thread...otherwise, it's naturally going to fall to the back of the threads because it won't have any recent posts. Pretty please???? Pretty pretty please?

And I'm the same way, I keep strolling down to find the thread. I can't find it then I remember it's stickied

And finally, too bad we didn't hit 3M views. That would have been a perfect note to leave on....oh, well.

I HATE eval time. Was promised a promotion last year, but didn't get it due to internal red tape (not being in the role long enough). Have no idea if I will get it this year, and won't find out for about 3 weeks. Just had to submit my self-eval, which is driving this rant. /over

Afternoon coffee time.

Ugh I hate self evals, it always almost means that if you give yourself a really good self evaluation, they just poop all over it, so they have leverage in the future.

Perhaps you should go all Horrible Bosses and do the Jason Bateman throwing Kevin Spacey out the window...and that is self sacrifice people!! Good luck...not with the window thing, with the promotion.

I will do a lot of things to ensure a raise or promotion, but I kinda draw the line at pushing people in front of Metro trains...
