But I do like the old Dodge Ram W250 getting close to 19MPG, and the turbo sounds cool!

Some Danner boots, cuz it's all about the Gore-Tex. They're light and quiet (that's most important) and warm.
Then the Extrema 2, soft and eats anything.

I've got more hunting stuff than I know what to do with. It has taken me many years to nail down my gear to the stuff I enjoy and trust. The gear I'm most happy about are my Meindl Denali boots, my optics (Zeiss Diascope, Leica Ultravids), my Mathews Switchback, my Badlands packs (Monster Fanny, 2200, and 4500), my tents (Cabelas Bighorn II for cold weather car camping and Big Agnes Seedhouse SL for backpacking), my Sitka Mountain Gear clothing in ASAT camo, and an assortment of Wilderness Athlete nutritional items. Gimme all that stuff, some time, and a good area and something is going down.

Can't forget the military surplus Fujinon M22 7x50 binoculars, I'll put them up against ANY pair of binos. Kinda big & heavy, but they are as rugged as rugged gets & stable, even in a good wind. If they were any brighter, I'd need sunglasses to look through them. Rubber armorized, crystal clear and no distortion. Almost no eye fatigue, even when looking through them for extended glassing sessions. About 30 ft to infinity, no focus needed (except initial focus of each ocular lens to your eyes). Focus your eyes through the brush and you can see what's on the other side. Dollar for dollar, the best you can buy. Fandamtastic! Buy a pair of these and use the $400-1200+ you save over Steiners, Leicas or Swarovskis, etc on ????

(and to whoever stole my last pair of binos out of my old boat.....F YOU!) nice binos....huh?

Not my purchase as they are just a little out of my price range ($5000), but regardless they are by far one of the most amazing tools in finding fish IMO. Yes they are that good and can out perform any regular set of binos by a long shot.

Im Talking about the Fuginon Stablescope gyro's on the left.
