  1. Should specify that I would prefer the switch in the cab. But it sounds like it shouldn’t be too much of an issue on battery. is it possible to make it so they don’t automatically turn on when opening doors?
  2. Each will go on end of rack just past the last cross bar.
  3. Ok, so I hate light bars on the beach just as much as anyone also so please don't flame me. Hopefully these are not in the same realm and I do not plan on using them EVER on the beach. I purchased a few Buyers LED 4" work lights to mount to my lumber/ladder rack. I'm trying to figure out the best way to hook them up. Ideally I would like to set them up with their own switch. However, I thought it'd be even easier to just tap into the cargo light/brake light on back of the cab, which already has its own switch. This light does turn on when you open the door, so I assume this would turn on these utility lights as well. So for this method I was wondering if a.) is this possible and b.) will they be a significant drain on the battery when truck engine is off. But if I were to set up a separate switch, how would I go about that? Truck is an '06 Tundra and the lights are Buyers LED 4". 12-24V, 1050lm, IP67, 20G.
  4. Helps a lot my friend! Much obliged, blown away by your help/info. Portugal was the original intention, and actually keeping it open to maybe driving over there at some point.
  5. Awesome info. Somewhat disappointed that streams/rivers will be closed. Would love to target trout in those scenarios as that’s my favorite, but your enthusiasm for barbel has me all worked up. when you say weather is “bad” is it cold bad or rainy bad? I don’t mind the cold. also, by and far the cheapest RV rental is located in Barcelona. Am I out of my mind to fly in there to drive the 6+ hours to coast where I intend to do the majority of my time? I could split it up and on the beginning and tail end of trip do my fly rodding.
  6. How is weather in January? I’m kind of finding mixed reports?
  7. Wow awesome info. I probably should have specified but I was intending to fish fresh water. But now that I am seeing what’s possible in the salt I may need to bring some gear for the salt as well. I’ll be mobile as I will stay in a camper. Not 100% sure now I’ll fly into Barcelona as my main intentions are to surf along the Atlantic coasts. really appreciate the info so far!!
  8. Looks like I'll be pulling trigger on a Spain surf trip for January. So far probably fly into Barcelona and drive over to Mundaka where I'll hug the coast. So far that's how it seems it will work out as it's the cheapest option for a camper van, somewhat of a shame as it's a bit of a drive but the price could let me stretch it to three weeks as opposed to two; and I'll be mobile the whole time anyway. Since that's about a 6 hour drive I figured I'd break it up and do some fly rodding. Anyone ever been?
  9. Yeah checked that, no issues there.
  10. I keep a marine VHF radio in my truck to listen to NOAA weather reports. I live right on the LI sound and it always worked great with clear reception until this year. Ch 6 is the only one that vaguely works, but it’s next to impossible to hear the reports. Any reason it would crap out?
  11. You’re giving me some serious nostalgia. I caught a big bow on the SF last fall and absolutely fell in love with Idaho, probably the only place I could give up the ocean for. Check out the film ‘Fly Highway’.
  12. Something you can hose out the inside would be money.
  13. I’m about a year out, but I’m just about ready to move on from my ‘06 Tundra. I’d love to find something between a half ton and 3/4 ton, if it exists. I like the look of newer tundras and the new Nissan Titan looks promising. This is a personal vehicle, but will be used for work and want something that can tow equipment for landscape construction. I don’t have one now but a skid steer is in also in my planned future. any experience with new tundras towing this kind of equipment? The titan actually seems capable, even saw one with a 5th wheel and multi car trailer. otherwise I will move on to a 250/2500 series truck.
  14. I always thought they did the Ford quigleys on f250 platforms, is this not the case?
  15. It’s in park slope.
