Me too, a plate I got in 1987 for my Ranchero, and it became my password for many things. Some times you get old, or forget, but some things you can't forget. Who writes down a ton of different passwords?:cool:

exactly 😂 so technically i stole his idea i guess!

one downside of being young: no more novel ideas 😂 that being said many good things about being young, although the back and knee pain is starting to set in already 😂

Just a small update, my Bosch AGM battery that is my auxiliary power mounted above my rear axle died and wouldn't hold a charge sometime in late summer to early fall. I had at least two trips where my fridge wouldn't run overnight because the voltage dropped too low but it would work as soon as my alternator was charging it. I went with a Duracell AGM from Batteries + this time because I got a good deal on it during the Black Friday-Cyber Monday weekend. The battery took forever to come in, finally got it a week before Christmas and I just installed it yesterday. It fit just like the Bosch did in my custom tray but I had to slightly oval the holes where the terminals poke out of the top cover of my bracket.

Back in October 2022 I finally made it to a unique part of NM that I have wanted to check out for years. It is a canyon where the Canadian River cuts through the red rock and used to be an orchard before a flood wiped out the whole operation in 1904. A few old buildings remain along with some great camping.

I'm pretty sure I have the Duracell AGM in our Ram. So far so good after 4 years or so. I also got mine from Batteries +. They replaced Diehard Platinums which lasted 7 years.

Love the night sky photo.:chug:
