Do Me A Favor

I wouldn't mind if two particular possessions of mine were stolen: 1) my snowboard . . . which I got at a Burton factory sale for fifty dollars eight years ago; the board features now defunct strap-less bindings and I hate them because I never know if I'm completely locked in and sometimes I find out that I'm not locked in while I am hurtling headlong down an icy mountain 2) my 1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport, which features no A/C, no cup-holder, self-hiding seat belt buckles, a driver side door that does not open when the temperature drops below freezing, a ripe smell, several colonies of spiders, no driver side sun visor, a burned out differential which creates a lack of Quadra-Trac four wheel drive, and a foam ceiling that is peeling away in strips.

Just buy new bindings for the board. It might double your investment but worth it. Think of your kids.

As for the truck, leave the keys in it every night and hope someone steals it.

i think that's what i'm going to do with the board, but bindings and boots are pretty expensive-- shoudln't i just buy a whole new set-up . . .

You should just use your skim board instead.

As far as your car goes, donate it to charity. They'll come and pick it up and you get a tax write-off. I got $800 for a completely non-operational 1997 Ford Contour (worst car I ever owned), you should be able to get more for a working SUV. It even comes with spiders!

Dave, you want to get rid of the Death Box? Say it ain't so. It took us to several OBFT's with only a mild feeling of imminent doom.

the nick-name "death box" isn't as funny when i load my kids into it.
