General Discussion / who's looking now?

attention anyone going thru newberry township, (my neck of the woods). the local police officers have just gone through an inspection course update and are pulling over lifted vehicles, Jeeps especially because they are registered as cars, for STUPID reasons. i personally was stopped and warned, (because the officer said he didnt have THAT much time), for stickers on the windows ( there are none in the sight path), bumpers too high (have to be less than 20"), fender flares not stock (cannot remove stock and add aftermarket), stone gaurds on headlights, non operational offroad lights uncovered (kc's), and numerous odd ball items. so is this a state theme or just a po'd local po.

so who else has been stopped and why, doesnt have to be recent.

National Issues / fee free days at national parks
« on: January 12, 2011, 05:44:36 pm »
thought this was worthy to pass along

January 12, 2011 – The National Park Service has announced Fee-Free days for 2011.  The program provides several fee free days throughout the year at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees.  The Fee-Free Days program was started in 2009 by U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to help Americans visit public lands in our National Parks during the economic downturn.

The dates are:

January 15-17 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday weekend
April 16-24 - National Park Week
June 21 - First day of summer
September 24 - Public Lands Day
November 11 - Veterans Day

Many national park concessions will also offer discounts on Fee-Free days, saving visitors money on food, lodging, tours and souvenirs. More information is available at

anybody know of any around here?
