I find his personality grating and unwatchable. Nice that we got some exposure I suppose.

Right?! So I have a plan. I will hit a 70 mpg tank this summer (easy) and get a hat made with the phrase "beats your hybrid" on it. Ha! You want one, Xist? Anyone else want one? I don't care if you actually pull 70+ MPG .... this club can be a mix of the aspirational, documented, and the irreverant.

He has a great setup (expensive!). But he does need a safer spot for the propane tanks, the rear corner of the trailer, at wheel height with flimsy fenders to protect it is an explosive hazzard I think. But other than that, he designed a great rig and spent his ample cash really well.
