    Arrows are very quiet, just be sure to cover vehicle bumper with blood, and make story sound good about running over top of deer, after it fell.

    We've got a fishing tournament this Saturday, Low of 24, High of 48. Sounds like fun... At least it will be mostly sunny.

      LOL!!! Me? With a bow and arrow? I'd probably hurt myself!

      • I struggled too much with my bow, so I sold it to my cousin. I paid $50 for it used and stripped down, spent over $150 on sites, arrows, broadheads, a case, and quiver, then had it tuned professionally. I shot it a few times, lost two arrows, and decided guns work better. I sold it for $50, with accessories. I'm still on my first box of shells for my 30/30 Marlin, and have killed several deer with it. I bought it new in 1996. I think it was a better deal. I have a few more boxes of ammo, but still have 6 rounds left from the original box of 20 that I got when I bought the gun.

            • It's a water rebellion!!

              After years of being sprayed into the heart of fire, our friend, H20 is trying to get back at us. It's slowly trying to dissolve away at our lives and cover the entire earth! Beware! It's already got control of over 70% and can only get worse. In all of its forms, water is trying to take us out! Be on the lookout for the runaway nozzles!!! Watch for that mysterious "Black Ice" that causes mayhem on the roadways we depend on.. Try to avoid the evil "thick fog" that blankets areas causing havoc. You have been warned...

                    Usually, after the wayward driver has turned several rounds on top of the once steady roadway, it will actually have a brown tint, eminating from their pants... Facts are facts.. I do not discriminate against red either, but I haven't seen much red ice, except for at the local Slush Puppy counter. I think that technically, they call it "Cherry." As further proof of water's attacks, if you eat the Cherry Slushie too fast, it attacks your brain, causing severe headaches after turning your tongue a bright red color..

                        • How about favorite kitchen tool (since I don't work with fire trucks )? Mine is my Kitchen Aid heavy-duty mixer.

                            This is what's used to mix foam for vehicle fires. Be sure to plug it up as soon as you get on scene... Use the big 2 1/2inch hole marked 'outlet' on the pumper, then ask for the operator to "Charge the line.."

                            • Why do you need a tool to get off of the truck?

                              Do you get stuck easily?

                                It's for the Chief...

                                Or..

                                Maybe, we are a small no budget volunteer outfit that hasn't got the funds to fix the parking brake on the truck, and if there isn't a nearby hydrant to tie a hose to, the truck might roll away from the scene, taking the tools with it..

                                Our ariel unit is a deer stand mounted in the back of a pickup truck with a garden sprayer on top.

                                If we had a budget, then we could afford to get some checks printed for our account..*
