Raising Hell Victory Tour: The Album


Bex here.  Loki took me on the Raising Hell Victory Tour this past weekend down to Green River, UT.  Loki had his own agenda to fulfill over the weekend, about which he will post himself.  I went for the photo ops and a giant jacuzzi tub in our hotel room. Since I wasn't able to fit the tub into our truck, I guess y'all will have to settle for the pictures I took.

The first stop was the Rock House.  This one room home can be yours just as long as you can live without things like central heating and air, indoor plumbing and electricity. 

The local herd of big horn sheep were all too willing to pose for pictures for me.  Even the ram decided to grace me with his presence for a few shots.   



The other photo op was down at Crystal Geyser on the other side of town.   Unfortunately the geyser doesn't have any set time schedule as to when it will go off, so instead of seeing boiling hot water shooting into the air we got to walk around the mineral deposit terrace and chase lizards. 

For those of you who prefer to be more active while visiting the sleepy town of Green River, might we recommend rafting or whatever it is that you call this guy is doing. 

And remember kids, be sure to keep your puppy safe from drowning!

Raising Hell Victory Tour

By the time you read this, I'll already be well on it.  Can't tell you the details, that would spoil the fun.  However, I can post fun times music videos!

I'll catch everybody when I get home, hopefully with all sorts of cool pictures.

D Day

I know it's late,  it's been a long day.  But today, this picture pretty much sums up all of my thoughts and feelings about D-Day.

Official Redneck Command Product Review Policy

It's gotten to the point where I have to have one, so here goes.

Yes, I do product reviews.  My email is on the right, feel free to drop me a line.  However, know beforehand that I value honesty above all else.  I've been helped by the honest reviews of gunnie friends, and I feel obligated to provide the same honesty for up-and-coming gunnies myself.

Any product I receive for review will get a published review.  I can't call myself honest if I don't do that.  If there is a problem with the product, I will first behave as I would if I were a paying customer.  The real world is an imperfect world, and the willingness and ability of a company to make right on problems is at least as important as their product.

As much fun as torture tests can be to watch, they aren't really my thing.  They don't tell me anything about how a product performs day-to-day.  Sure, your truck can tow 5 tons through fire up an impossible incline (my current favorite overblown TV torture test.)  But what really matters to me is what the oil looks like 50000 miles down the road, or whether or not the brakes can stop that 5 ton trailer coming down the back side of one of the mountains I tow through.  Real-world is where my focus lies.  (Not that I won't do a torture test if a vendor asks.  The phrase "Try and break this" is exceptionally motivational to me.)

In short, I owe it to myself, the vendors, and whoever reads my reviews to be as honest, forthright, and practical as possible, and to frame all of my reviews in the mindset of the capitalist's greatest determinant: "Would I spent my own money on this?"

I hope I can help somebody like I've been helped.
