I wouldn't worry about it too much. I have never been hassled about it way out in the boonies. Not saying you shouldn't get one but it's probably more of a concern during hunting season. I was going to buy an annual fishing license soon anyways. That way at least one of us will have one.

I'm near Roseburg.



Not much into fishing and the best chair at camp is a tailgate.



Got my ball joints the other day. Gotta get those in the truck. It'll be a 450-500 mile trip to break them in since we are not taking my buddies focus again. Not nearly enough room. Should be fun but last time we got 28MPG in a boosted focus. This time we will get 17MPG in the truck. Lol!

If the water is really shallow you can always shoot the fish lol. I am pretty sure I have a couple of extra chairs I can bring. Coolers work well too.

A boosted focus, huh? That's got to be a blast. I have only worked on and driven regular ones.

I couldn't figure out what you meant at first. You mean a Ford Focus? Oh, okay. Bring a folding chair anyway. You'll need it.

Roseburg? I lived there when I was a kid. You know, back when dinosaurs were still roaming the Earth. NE Klamath. Back then, all they talked about was that truck exploding downtown and wrecking all the windows for a mile around. And the big crater it left behind. We should do something down around Roseburg, then. Has to be three nights though, or it isn't worth driving all that way from the Seattle area. Not bringing the TV though, just the projector with the screen, and the DVD player for it. Same thing, easier to transport. You can run video games through it if you want, movies, whatever.

If you want to blast off the ridiculous SKS, pick up some 7.62x39mm ammo. It's cheap, like five bucks for fifty rounds. I will bring my 22 as well, but that's probably it.

Things like to rocochet off water.



Yup, it's a fun little car. The seating position and the shifter position is kinda weird. The shifter location is borderline uncomfortable for me. It's a 6 speed.

I am joking, of course. That can't be safe.

My sister had a 2014 focus for about a year. It was actually pretty nice to drive and it had the tightest steering of any Ford I've ever driven (not saying much lol) but it also had one those horrendous dual clutch transmissions which totally ruined it. With a regular old manual transmission it would have been fine.

I drove a focus rental car with that stupid automatic. It was horrible. No power, couldn't figure out how to shift or when and when it did change gears it felt like the clutch was toasted and warped. Starting off from a stop felt like trying to slip a stage 3 clutch for 30+ seconds. It just shuttered and stuttered all over. Was terrible. Riding a goat would have been smoother and faster. Was not impressed. Never looked at a focus again till I got to ride in and drive my buddies ST.

Floor freedom is just not an drawback except if you're introduced down. Mine is a stock two vid setup and it influenced it to up there with floor freedom to save. Regardless of whether or not you might be introduced down a few inches it is without doubt nonetheless perfect on the off risk that you are watchful.

Sadly the price on that stuff has gone up. It's around $9-10/40rnds these days. Besides, I buy it by the case. Lately I've been going through 5.45x39 though.

Hey...you are right. I checked at my favorite place. It's still five bucks, but the fall-apart cardboard boxes only hold TWENTY, not fifty. Doesn't matter. I might leave that loud SKS at home and just bring the 22's instead.
