I got my replacement cellphone in today, another treo 600. Apparently sprint's protection plan was worth the 3 or 4 bucks per month I was paying them. Unfortunately, my charger was stolen so I need to buy another one. Now I'm going to see how the service on this one works and use that to decide if I want to stick with sprint after my contract goes up or switch.
I ordered two red jerry cans today from an army surplus store along with some mounting brackets. I think I'll bolt them to a 2x10 and mount that to the front inside of my truck bed, and replace the straps with either metal strapping or chain to lock it down. Then I'll have some durable gas cans baby. I'll just have to cover them up with a tarp so they'll let me on the ferry.
