Re: Whipsaw, Canada 2017

neither the location or the date are that important to a retiree, just let me know in time to get there. As long as the trails are not pure ROCK CRAWLER trails I am up for it. I just want to meet others that have been bitten and infected by the LJ bug.

Whether the tube is gray poly tube or white pex tubing call around and locate a brand of fittings called Flair-It these will solve your water line splicing trobles without any special tools.They fit both types of tubing and wont leak or break (good stuff) Lows or Home Depot should have.
