  1. The Car Thread

    Glacier is our favorite. Going to the Sun, Polebridge, Ptarmigan Tunnel, Iceberg Lake... I've spent a good amount of time cruising and hiking there. Someday we are going to stay at the Prince of Wales in Waterton. Thanks for the suggestion on Beartooth! Never been but we are always up for a great road trip. I think the best part of buying a Jeep was the instant recognition of the Jeep code. Other Wrangler drivers were waving to us even on the test drive It's like joining a club that I didn't know existed a week ago.

  4. The Car Thread

    I live in the closest south suburb of Chicago. We like to travel west a lot though - Glacier, RMNP, the Black Hills. We were supposed to go to Yosemite and Napa for our 10 year anniversary this year, but COVID...
  5. The Car Thread

    I'm a camping/outdoor enthusiast, so this is definitely going to be put through its paces. On the other hand it's technically my wife's car. We were out in CA for a wedding last year and I rented a convertible Camaro to drive up the coast from LA to SLO. When we got to where we were going she fell in love with a Wrangler that our friends had rented and has wanted one ever since. It's a good thing she likes the mountains and road trips too! I'm still stuck in my 14 Corolla...
  6. The Car Thread

    Damn, I keep finding these threads late haha! The wife and I just bought a brand new 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited North Edition in black. I'm not much of a "car guy" but this thing is so much fun to drive.
  7. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    There is a huge variance in testing per capita by state. High positivity rates imply that the outbreak is really bad, that they aren’t testing enough, or both. In Arizona’s case it seems to be both as they are just under the US average in tests/million people.

    Oh I don't know about that. I'd certainly rather have Kamara or Henry than Bell or Mixon - depending on contract status.
  9. The Iron Chef!!

    Is this based on analytics, eye test, relative value? I don't really have a problem with someone saying Le'Veon Bell is better than Aaron Jones, or that Derrick Henry is better than Nick Chubb. I probably wouldn't have a problem with the opposite either. I think there are a lot of really good running backs all pretty close to each other. Cook seems about right to me - borderline top 5.
  10. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Deleting the app from my phone has been extremely helpful. I have to have an account in order to manage my band's page, but getting rid of the boredom reflex has been a big plus for me.
