    Latest Book Recommendations

    I tried to read Tolkein's Fall of Gondolin recently. I don't know if it is because his son edited the book, but i could not get through it. Quit after about 50 pages because it was just too tedious. Very disappointed as I really enjoyed all his other books. So not recommended.

    +1!! AEV had a Brute Double Cab conversion package based off the Rubicon the that looked much like this but at likely much steeper price. The cost was somewhere between $80 - 100k depending on package selected.

    RORC Transat

    Yes I am well aware that they are not participating in this year's transatlantic. My question is where is Phaedo/Beau Geste now . . . as in why are they not in this year's race and do they have any races scheduled?

    Some of the newer high end construction does have metal roll down shutters. I've seem some in south Florida that have mounts for storm shutters to be easily mounted in the event they are needed and then removed and stored so as not to spoil the architecture.
