    So how much did this t shirt cost me? DUI checkpoint question

    It was a long time ago as these kids are in their 20's now but I got pulled over for having a faded orange flag when I was skiing. No cite and kids got some SO swag.

    Fuel cooler

    So last year in Powell my buddies 2007 Tige would vapor lock when we went no wake speed. We ran the blower and lifted the engine hatch to vent it and it solved the problem. This was a mid July trip. Getting ready for Powell this year we did a full service on it. We changed out the fuel filter...

    Back Disc Pain: Anyone had surgery or the outpatient treatment?

    Left leg is always numb, still have strength but I often stub my left toe as I don't lift my leg up due to nerve issues. I have had 3 epidurals over past 3 years. Pretty pain free unless I do something stupid. I can't ski 4 times a day anymore and limit it to once a day when at the river...

    Back Disc Pain: Anyone had surgery or the outpatient treatment?

    Cell phone overheats when playing music

    Been runny Sammy's since Galaxy S3. Used Slacker in the old days and Spotify now. I had a S10 prior to my Note 20 Ultra. Never have had heat issues but I run Spotify in Off Line mode so it doesn't need data to play. As mentioned, battery save mode or airplane mode as weak signal can cause phone...

    Memorial weekend picture thread

    Buddy sent the pics... DUI check is my guess as driver was in the SO boat. He did not get the orange life vest prize so he must have been sober.
