    I've driven a couple 5 speed cars and found '6th' at speed. It doesn't sound pretty. :)

    Just donated to EJI - almost missed the last day my employer is matching donations for this at 2:1. In the woods, beer in hand, hoping to make a difference.

    We drove by a Cabella’s on our way back from camping - the parking lot was absolutely jammed and there was no line at the door so pretty obvious they’re not doing anything to get shoppers to social distance.

    This was in one of Washington’s counties where COVID cases are out of control right now. I can imagine most going in weren’t wearing masks.

    I’m not saying anything negative about Cabella’s - I love that store and now want to go to find that same pair of pants as they look awesome for hiking. It was just surprising to see the parking lot packed when COVID is crazy again.

    Cabela's here is doing a que to get in. Was a 15 minute wait but well worth it.

    Pants are from Costco.

    Well, now maybe I need to go to Costco!

    I went to REI today (US version of MEC Co-op). They could give a masterclass on how to run a store during the pandemic.

    On that note:

    - new hiking shoes. Mine bit the dust camping this past weekend.
    - hiking pants
    - t-shirt
    - shorts
    - hiking socks
    - peanut butter chocolate marshmallows as a treat for my daughter

    And on the way home:
    - tequila
    - margarita mix

    blackcircles.ca for future reference. My new go to for tires. Bought a few sets from there, all arrived in 3 days and the prices destroyed local shops. They didn't have the tires I was looking for and I got on the online chat and they got them for me. Got a set of 18" Pilot Sport 4S for $1100 to my door :bowdown:

    I'm still torn on what i want. I don't really need an AT tire. Don't do any offroading. But i do want a strong tire for towing.

    This truck does 0 off-roading, but can carry some weight in the bed if need be on occasion, so I wanted LTs and figured I might as well get a tire that looks cool while I’m at it. :o

    Just out of curiosity, I priced those up on blackcircles. $ 885.38 shipped for the set. Good price?

    Sure they are LT? Like one can get regular passenger tires. But LT tires are generally a couple hundred more.

    where does it say they're LT tires? I priced them and was around $1080 for my size. no mention of LT that I can see. Also I find their website very buggy, pages won't load, etc

    Adblocker of some sort messing it up? Works fine for me

    https://www.blackcircles.ca/en/tire/falken/wildpeak-a-t3w

    I'm not surprised if their price is a few hundred cheaper than local prices. I've bought two sets of tires from them and they were significantly cheaper than local shops.

    I couldn't get them from my truck for that price in LT.

    It pops up if they are LT above the price. Next to if it's snow/studdable etc.

    was the ad blocker.

    Not an LT tire for me, only XL, which I could live with. $1064. Not bad.
