    I wish my JBM'd looked half as good as that, they were so wrinkled they could have passed for Kudu and then some. I have received much better 2nds, there were gouges, blemishes and creases all over them.

    Also hopeful my Viccel socks will come soon when did you order?

    It was just an old cow. :)

    Viccel order was placed late on 11/25.

    Tires are more important than shoes. Your life and the lives of your family depend on them.

    25 years ago I was driving a set of tires worn to the wear bars and maybe a bit more.

    65 mph in a driving rain on the freeway and I hydroplane, back end fishtails left and right and getting worse.

    I had to scrub off speed quick but couldn't hit brakes. This is Pre ABS.

    Finally at 45 mph I purposely spin it out so I wouldn't risk rolling. Did a 720 - saw the headlights behind me twice.

    Came to a stop at exit ramp. Took it and sat for a few minutes to regain composure.

    New tires the next day. And they were good ones. I continue to buy the best tires I can afford and then some.

    And it makes a tremendous difference in the handing of your car.

    I am in the "waiting room" myself for this and an aortic graft. Not looking forward to it at all!

    My youngest daughter is having nightmares over the song - good ole Shay keeps singing it to her mommy.

    And I encourage her!

    New Rancourt boots. Thought I’d give em a try thanks to @BagleyBrown recommendation. Gotta say the construction is beefy, a very substantial boot. Could be a “ Gunboat” variant. The CXL is top notch , and the 115 last is great.

    Well gents, still having issues with my shell Patriot order. Ordered in early October during the RDA sale, failed inspection and a second pair was supposed to ship on 11/19. That clearly didn't happen, so my SA has been trying to get in contact with the head of custom shoes at AE.

    I'm surprised its this hard to get a pair of 12Ds made and shipped to me. Hesitant to order a pair of shell Leeds until this gets resolved.
