Regular price is $250. It's been at $199 quite a bit but I haven't seen it below $199 in quite a while.

Obviously not something you'd go and buy just because it dropped $20, but if you're in the market for one it's a good deal.


I've had one of these for probably 8 years. It's been through 10's of thousands of miles with pretty much every weather imaginable. Driving through the desert at well over 100 degrees, sub-freezing Northeast winters, snowstorms, hailstorms, torrential downpours (everything stayed dry,) and probably just about everything in between.

One thing it did not hold up well to is kids jumping on it so alas it's time for a new one.

I haven't seen any real difference in gas mileage when using this.

when I got mine it was twice the size and half the price of anything else out there.

It's branded as X-cargo but it's actually manufactured by Thule.

Pretty decent price for heavy weight forks, even if not compostable.

I have an RV reservation which it doesn't look like I'll be able to use.

One way ORD > SFO
Brand new unit, straight from the factory.

$39/night, 2500 free miles.
Must be in SFO by 7/1 (there MIGHT be a few days leeway here, I can't say for certain. I already got them to extend the time once, I'm not sure they'll do it again.)
My reservation is picking up in ORD 6/20, that should be flexible.

DDF DO Board / Photography Lesson DO
« on: December 06, 2013, 01:46:10 AM »
Heck, even a day trip lesson to Miami (Everglades?) this winter would be cool.
I was about to suggest a day trip lesson sometime this winter!
I was thinking something more local in the northeast but FL should work for me.

It's that time of year again, time to get really serious about planning my cross-country road trip with my family.


I'm going NY > CA, I plan to take a more southern route this time. I have a whole big chunk of the south-central part of the country that I haven't really been to yet (Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas & New Mexico,) I plan to remedy that somewhat over the course of this trip.


I don't really have very much of a plan yet.


I'm thinking to go  NY > Great Smokey Mountains National Park > Nashville, TN and head west from there.


On the western end, I'm kinda leaning toward hitting up the four corners monument > Grand Canyon north rim > maybe a quick stop in Zion NP > LAX


My questions are:
1. Is there anything in MS, AR, MO, KS, OK or northern TX worth seeing/doing? (I'm considering possibly Crater of Diamonds State Park and/or Hot Springs National Park in AR)


2. What are the must-sees in New Mexico?


3. Other than the Grand Canyon and Sedona, what are the best sights/activities in AZ?


(for 2 & 3 I'm looking for things for which I won't need to pay a fortune to some Indian tribe...)

General Discussion / (Crown Heights) "The Marketplace" CC system hacked?
« on: February 19, 2013, 01:01:02 PM »
I just got a call from somebody telling me The Marketplace in Crown heights had their CC system hacked into and if I shopped there I should check my statements etc. as people have been getting all kinds of charges from around the world.


Anybody else hear something like this?
