If you're going to be doing any off-roading, head up to Tinkham Road in North Bend off of I-90. That's the most popular Jeeping place on this side of the Cascades. If you're looking for non-Jeep related fun in Seattle...good luck, I still haven't found any

Tinkham is exit 42 if you're Eastbound, or 47 if you're headed West. If you get off on either exit the road will come out at the opposite one. Here's a little bit of info on Tinkham:

That rollover pic might scare you a bit, but like the author said, just listen to your gut. If you think it's going to get better...it probably isn't.

This link below shows you pretty much all the major offroad spots in the state of Wa. As far as the drive from Michigan there is PLENTY to see on the way out....Devils Tower, Badlands, Blackhills, Glacier NP, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Bighorn Mtns and on and on. What exactly are you looking for?

Is there a way to mount a CB in a Jeep without having to be afraid someone will jack it?

Ya, it seriously looks amazing! Maybe I can put it on my Christmas wish list... ;-) My parents never know what to get me and this is totally up my dad's alley. He'd actually have fun buying this. Win, win?

Definately a win! I hope you can get one. I am planning to mount a CB overhead of the rearview mirror, but I am just going to use a normal bracket mount. I have a hardtop and harddoors, and no where to store them, so the security isn't as big of an issue at this point for me.

Ya, you'll probably be fine. I know mine wouldn't last a week. Doors and top off in an apartment complex. No chance... Thanks for the link!

No garage. The doors are currently in my bedroom, soft top is just pulled back and the back seat is currently in my spare room's closet. Haha. Ya, the only clutter in my home. It doesn't bother me though cuz its Jeep related. :-)

My backseat is sitting in my bedroom....but I also have a bunch of mountaineering gear and motorcycle parts in there too. Sigh for apartments with limited storage space

Hey I have an idea...since tntviper was disappointed with 104 views and 4 comments....we should try to get the comments to match the views

I know. Sometimes I think it's a good thing though cuz I think people tend to just gather stuff until their place is full. This way I'm kinda forced to pick and choose what I actually use and don't have a lot of junk around. Makes moving a lot easier too. Haha.

That's y I didn't feel too bad interrupting with my non related question... It was at least a comment! :-) I'll hang in here a while but it may not be long before I crash...

:Cringe: Ya, some of those are so gross. I always feel like cleaning and getting rid of stuff after watching it! It's one of those things that I can't stand to look at but I can't turn away either.

I know...its like it trips some subconscious fear that we could maybe end up the same as those people even though they have a medical/mental condition. I guess maybe its the lack of knowledge of what actually causes someone to end up like that is a contributing factor. It doesn't take much for me to clutter my small 1bd place after getting a couple packages of jeep or motorcycle parts and just throwing things on the ground instead of finding an organized place for them. I can deal with a little clutter for a few days or a week or so...but I can't stand dirty....and what I see in most of those hoards is just nasty dirty. I have a hard time seeing how someone could allow the straight up uncleanliness to get out of control like that. The other show that I find similar is "my strange addiction". Now that one is just scary weird lol.

That show is nuts! Ive seen a few of those and that's way beyond out there. I'm trying to think of the ones I've seen... Addicted to snorting baby powder, having sex with their car and drinking urine are the ones that come to mind. Yikes!

A little bit of everything...I was doing alot of technical rock climbing up until about a year ago when I got a pinched ulnar nerve from overuse which was causing tingling and numbness in my pinky and ring finger. Basically the doc told me to lay off the climbing so the nerve compartment swelling would go down. He said that if I didn't it could cause permanent damage and muscle wasting in the hand etc. It took about 6 months before the tingling etc. went away and I haven't been on the rock since because I am still kinda nervous about it flaring back up.

Now I have been doing alot more ice climbing (glacier...no waterfall ice yet but hopefully next year) and just general alpine climbing (more nontechnical). Are you a climber?

No. A few years ago I thought about getting into it but I don't know if I trust myself to not make a fatal mistake. Don't fear heights... just a brutal fall because I pick a bad part on a rock or something.

Well how long has it been since it completely healed? Do u not think u could go for a test climb to see how it does? If u love to do it I'd hate for u to stop.

I know....makes me wonder if its scripted in any way lol. The one I found the oddest was the lady that was straight up drinking gasoline!!! Like a cup a day or something over multiple years....I just don't see how she could even still be alive if that was really true...I imagine her liver was just about finished.

Oh gosh the urine drinking lady LOL...I suggested to one of my friends that she should get together with Bear Grylls LMAO! That is just soooo freakin sick though....I mean this is your bodys waste products and you are going to put it back into your body and think its a health benefit! crazy! Plus she like bathed in it or something too.....oh my gosh I can't imagine running into that lady on the street smelling like piss....ugh...

Did you see the one about the lady who was drinking bleach? Or the girl that was eating plastic

I didn't see the gas one. I'm sure her insides are shot! How old was she -ish?

Ya and the lady would put some in a tiny cup and let it sit on her eye ball for like a minute each... Not sure what benefit that was supposed to have! Lol. I could definitely see Bear doing some of that though! You're right! Her poor kids having to smell her... And her friend didn't even know... Must've had no sense if smell.

I didn't see the bleach or plastic one either. I really don't know how the bleach girl didn't die. That seems a million times worse than gasoline!!

Well how long has it been since it completely healed? Do u not think u could go for a test climb to see how it does? If u love to do it I'd hate for u to stop.
So I would totally try it if you have any interest in the least (rockclimbing right?)...as with anything there are obviously levels of risk...and you are not going to have to try anything riskier than you are comfortable with. So I would say you should just go to an indoor gym first and get comfortable with bouldering and toproping...some of the gyms even have autobelay devices so you don't need a partner right away to belay you. Plus bouldering is easy to just get the feel for whether or not you are going to want to get further into it....you are close to the ground and have mats under so theres no worry about getting hurt and no need to buy a harness or biners yet. Just get a decent pair of shoes and some chalk and you will be set. Maybe the gym will even offer you a technique class where you can learn some different moves etc.

After you have done that for a while and and can comfortably climb 5.8's on toprope in the gym, then I would say go outside and try the real thing. See if there is a climbing group around and get with experienced and safe climbers and you wont have any worries. The good thing is that when you are a beginner, you won't need to lead up and worry about taking a whipper fall or anything. Most likely you will start out by go to a cragging area that is bolted and someone will set up a toprope first and then you can climb (you will only fall a couple inches or so with a good belayer on toprope) so its not even a big deal. And if later on if you want to start leading you can do bolted routes first which are mostly completely safe (no worry about pulling gear out of the wall). The only time when things really start to even approach dangerous is when you start leading trad....basically setting your own pro (cams, nuts, etc.) because a fall could pull out gear based on how well you set it. Some climbers are strictly sport climbers (bolted routes), some just climb in the gym. Point is...it is what you make it difficulty and dangerwise

Oh I've pretty much been healed most of this summer best I can tell...but part of the other reason I haven't done it was just a bit of burnout. Truthfully, I was climbing 2 times a week at the gym and then just about every weekend (not always rock on the weekends though) for nearly a year and I kinda lost a bit of drive. I'll definately get back out there....just right now I have no motivation....its kinda odd how that happened. But pretty much this summer has been spent trailriding on the dirtbike.

I've actually gone top roping in an indoor gym before but I kinda barely think that counts. As long as you're not afraid of heights it's super easy. I'd actually never heard of bolted routes before. And I wouldn't mind going outside and doing the real thing as long as at first I didn't have to set everything up. I just always thought it was either indoor gym or you go out there with a couple friends and your own gear and get to it. I'm curious now... Although I'll have to wait til we move out west again. Not a lot of mountains in Augusta, GA. Ha. Doubt we even have an indoor gym here.

I'd definitely wait til the burn out passes then. At least you're still out doing something fun. You'll eventually get to where you're excited again to get out there.

Ya and the lady would put some in a tiny cup and let it sit on her eye ball for like a minute each... Not sure what benefit that was supposed to have! Lol. I could definitely see Bear doing some of that though! You're right! Her poor kids having to smell her... And her friend didn't even know... Must've had no sense if smell.

I didn't see the bleach or plastic one either. I really don't know how the bleach girl didn't die. That seems a million times worse than gasoline!!
the eyeball part OMG....I totally forgot about that. Seriously...I think what that lady needs is counseling haha.

I dunno some of the stuff seems soooo far out there....I mean how in the heck could a real person even come to the conclusion to try that let alone become addicted. One thing is for sure....the entertainment value is out the roof...its like theres no way you can't watch that stuff lol.

Speaking of tv....I was wanting to check out that "One car too far" show....but missed it on Sunday....apparently I'll have to wait till next Sun to see it again. Did you watch?
