    That is very close in size to the one that is on my Ranger with a 6 foot bed. Your Wildernest should fit any small pickup with a 6 foot bed.

    Time to get a new GPS

    I have been using a Garmin Street Pilot 2720 for many years and it has proven to be somewhat useful off-road too. I shows many of the off-road trails I have been on and it provides GPS coordinates...

    Thanks for all the information. I have some reading to do but it looks like I don't have to do anything about the missing ball.

    I have to lean toward safety as its main function.

    It appears Frenchie is not the only one that gets confused. I got nights 3 and 5 mixed up. I guess that makes me officially an Ol' Fart.

    I just happen to have a picture of the beaver pond with the flying fish. So, most of that story is true. The fish were shy and would not pose for me.
