Never give a paint job to an illiterate.

Then again, as long as the lights and siren works,
it probably doesn't matter.

What the picture does not convey is the sound of ammo cooking off!

That's great Reilly. That's the Sherwin Summit grade, isn't it?

If so, I think it eats RV's from time to time. Was heading up that way with a pal and my kids to Tuolumne a few years back when traffic came to a dead stop (mid-week). When we got to the scene, it was just a carcass of an RV. Check yer coolant folks... it's a long hot slog up there!

Reilly,
I thought that was a scene from 'Breaking Bad!' The sound of a meth lab going off...

Edit: Fletcher, not just coolant. I've seen flaming transmission fluid literally dripping out from underneath one of those. It was a surreal moment in Sequoia, super quiet afternoon, kicking it in a turnout after climbing when this RV chugs to a stop just short of us. The driver hops out with his extinguisher, only to get a 'puff' out of it. The look on his face...I'm f#cked! I had one in my van and put it out for him...

Bull balls are the best sturgeon bait available around the Delta. I had to throw back a 600-pounder because I already had a bigger one in the boat!

Top that, catfish hunter! :0)
I have no photo to prove it, but they were similar to these beauties in size.
Go ahead, say "Fishsticks!" Make my day.

That Chilliwack image caught my eye. Been by there a bunch of times on my way up to the Merritt area. Did know monsters were lurking nearby.

Yeah, and you're right ec, that is the Breaking Bad mobile meth lab!

Philo, Just goes to show man is not the top creature.

We share a bond with all of nature.

Thanks for the post.
