Oh, and my FaceSpace feed told me that five years ago today I was replacing the first dead center differential; and now it's in the capable(?) hands of the Lounge Leader

With that being said... Who's bringing a Sawzall?

No Sawzalls unless you're installing a big pink knit hat on the car.  wink

I am. It's part of my "rear differential failure" contingency because the axle shafts are permanently seized to the diff.

Re: Are you bringing a CB? What else are you bringing for tools/ spares?

I just picked up a SWR meter that I'll bring with me if anyone wants to fine tune their CB set-up. 

I also have an extra 28" antenna.  If you want me to bring it, let me know.

I could use that when we get there.  Not that I will know what I am doing, but the CB forums seem to think they are useful/necessary so that your radio doesn't die a fiery death.

Re: Are you bringing a CB? What else are you bringing for tools/ spares?

Since CB lore has largely faded into the distant past, I'll remind anyone running a vehicle with a fiberglass body (e.g. Speedycop's Reliant Regal) or anyone else who is otherwise planning to mount their antenna somewhere not on a large metallic surface that you'll need a "no ground plane" antenna. They're still readily available for use on fiberglass boats, for mounts attached to West Coast mirrors, and so forth.

There are CB forums?

Anyway, why the hell not. I want to see how you tune an antenna.

Co driver got us a cb, with the magnetic base. I was hoping for the long  antenna , but what can ya do.
Anyways I guess we will be on channel two, are we supposed to have "handles" 0r what ever the kids call it these days?

Re: Are you bringing a CB? What else are you bringing for tools/ spares?

My teammate didn't find my 24 inch magnetic mount sufficient.
So we pulled into a truck stop and he got a 36 inch center load.
