Am I too late?
I know were that is.  I grew up straight north of there about 90 miles. 
Hey fellow cowboy boot fans.  I grew up in them.  Wore them just about every day to high school.  I wasn't a cowboy, but worked on farms and ranches in eastern Colorado, so they were not trendy wear items.  I still have a few pairs from that time, although they don't fit well.  Justin's mostly.  I do have a couple of Justin ropers of which I wear one pair every so often, the other, in brown, is new in the box.     Quick story, but they used to make them in sea turtle....
Was just offering advice. Sorry for trying to be nice. Have a nice life.
Probably my favorite thread on here.  I have worn glasses for over 40 years.  I wore mostly contacts, but always wanted glasses that looked stylish when my dry eyes couldn't support glasses.  However, about two years ago, I got the best news a 40 year glasses wearing person can get:  your cataracts need to be removed.  So, that colony of "whatever" that was accumulating in the middle of my vision on my one eye could be removed (it pays to go to a great eye doctor at a...
I wish I could hit you up, but they are really difficult to come by unless you are close with someone who works there. My need for Nike Employee store passes has now gone down tremendously since my daughter is going to play soccer at a Nike sponsored school and all her stuff is free.  No more buying soccer shoes.  Whoo hooo.  
 Good luck in finding either of them, they are out of production and very difficult to find.  I have a pair of Krause in black and they are amazing boots.  I wear them 4 times a week.  I just bought some of the last AE Sauk Drives which are also made from Dublin leather, the same as the Krause.  AE sold them for $199, even though they said they were $350 marked down but they were a BF special and were never offered at $350.  I bought mine on closeout for $157.  I don't...
I will second this as those are the two products I use on my leather bags.  Actually I don't use the Obenaufs on my Holland Bros. bag and my Coach leather duffle bag as that leather is too fine for it.  I used some leather cream on those and the Lexol.  For Filson leather, Obenaufs and Lexol.  
  I bought a Mullholland Bros. Safari bag for my dad years ago during a big sale in NY. I now have it as he passed away. I found this one for sale on eBay used, http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/271897043545?ul_noapp=true&chn=ps&lpid=82 I also have a Coach leather shoulder bag which I really like.  I don't know if they make them anymore or not. As to Filson, I have a computer bag that is just durable as hell.  I never thought of it as boring, but I suppose you might be right....
I drive a 2006 A3 Audi.  I drive a lot.  My typical daily commute is 60 miles each way and that is after I drive 100 miles out to my work house from my permanent home.  I drive a combination of 4 lane freeway, two lane highway and two lane country road that is about a 8% grade with tons of curves.  The latter lasts about 5 miles.  The DSG is awesome on the way home where I drive downhill and use the paddles to control the speed into the corners.  The car easily takes the...
