"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. "

I have never believed that spending a lot of money got you the "very best"

Those will work awesome when you rest your rig on a rock and yep ... free is not bad at all!!!!
