Someone posted this video on FB and so far I'm digging this relaxing full length film called "Voyage". It's about a guy and some friends taking a boat from Knoxville, TN down to the Gulf. I'm only about 10 mins in so far but enjoying the quality and narration.

This was awesome. I really enjoyed it, too.

My favorite tree in our yard is this little sunset maple. Probably because it's the first tree that we see blossom in the spring and makes me the most excited for things to warm up. I took this photo Tuesday as it's buds opened. Beautiful 60° day!

HA!! my wife and I just had the tree blooming discussion last night,

Dead ahead is our giant Pecan tree, it's the last to bloom by 3-4 weeks, the first year in our house we thought the builders had killed it because it took so long to bloom,

Another round in the books today. Tee’d off at 4:00 and was done by 6. These 2 hour rounds of golf are going to spoil my ass. I also have liked the fact they removed all the pins from the greens. Now my approach shots are so much better because I’m not trying to aim at anything other than the center of the green. Crazy to think removing the flags would have this effect.

Our first travel trailer had torsion axles and I didn't know any different till we got our 5er with the traditional leaf springs. There's a night and day difference. A much smoother ride with less bounce with the torsions. Now, our first one was an ultra lightweight model that probably had something to do with it versus the much heavier 5er. If and when it's time to replace the boat trailer it will have torsions and be able to run with 16" tires so I can run LT tires.

My boat just glides along on the highway.... it's an amazing difference!

After ONLY 5 years I think its time to start thinking about new torsion axles for my Triple axle boat trailer. After 2.5 years the leaf springs and the calipers were locking up. I went through and replaced all the leaf springs and hardware and added "greaseable" bolts to all the pivot points.
I don't trailer that often, but when I do it's dipped in SALT/brackish water. I'm pretty good about rinsing off the trailer, however water isn't always readily available. That salt REALLY does a number on my trailer. Tough to see happening on a trailer I bought NEW. I swear i'm gonna have to go through and replace every bolt there is... including axles/brakes :mad:
