    Comealong cable to the knees got to hurt. I was recently in the same situation and almost encountered the same deal. Luckily I spotted the cable fraying before it broke. Glad to hear you got the EX out.

    I'm giving in to my crappy connection and taking the laptop to McD's and uploading the pictures. April 24th was my birthday, and I'm still recovering from that also! I have 53 pics, but will only post the cream of the crop ;)

    Thanks everyone for being so patient!!

    I know one thing, I believe the mud made my sas/soa itch worse!!!!!!!

    You're wife goes out in the mud with you? That's nice, I don't know many women who do that.
