    I haven't heard of anything that does that - they sell something that goes the other way and can hook up existing speakers to a Sonos system. On the plus side you can resell Sonos stuff and get good value if you want to just pull it down and add your own rear speakers. Sell what you have and go all Sonos? Join the cult.

    They're technically taking the speakers but leaving these thenos mounts. I would have bought the satellites if it was possible, but I just have too much money dumped into my own stuff to bail on it.

    Been thinking about these since they came up a little while ago. Pulled the trigger yesterday afternoon and they were on my porch this AM. These were on final sale close out so they were under $40 and got a free shipping code. I can understand not trusting these outsoles to last very long because the shoes themselves are extremely light but they are comfortable and most importantly for my needs, easy on/off. For the price I couldn't go wrong and if these soles prove me wrong I'll be a pretty big believer. I'll know by mid summer.

    Not sure the picture does them justice but got the Mitchell leather passport holders. Now if the pandemic can fuck off so we can use them frequently and in short order.

    This might be the best recommendation of the last 50 pages.

    I've been making simple recipes like Strawberry. Also tried Coconut Pineapple.

    Let me tell you, life is pretty good when this thing is churning and you're dipping the spoon in to sample the soft serve.

    Highly recommend for the upcoming Summer.

    You just use the rower, or have you joined any of the online row-clubs?

    I just row. Also pro tip, there’s a resistance on that. So there are some canned workouts as well, which is usually what I do. I keep pace through the amount of time it takes me for certain workouts. I normally keep the resistance at 5. One day I literally thought I was dying and had something seriously wrong me, literally had to stop mid workout. Walked around and cooled down only to realize one of the kids moved the resistance up to 9. I was smoked.

    C2 has an online log where you can enter your meters rowed and participate in their challenges. You also become eligible for stuff from their store as you hit certain milestones ( meterstones?). I wear my 5MM shirt proudly even though I don't row much anymore

    Wife has a ‘17 NX200, the little brother to the RX. It’s aight. She really likes it. It has a touchpad thing to navigate the infotainment and that sucks shit. Good car overall, just small. I’m not really a fan of some of the stuff Toyota/Lexus does on the inside of the car but that’s a me thing.

    i read that the controls to the infotainment suck and the interior could be set up better. Oh well. I like the way Lexus rides more than BMW . She was also looking at X5 I think. Toyotas are super dependable and hold value really well.

    I have run through this a few times and usually kind of taper off rowing for a while when the weather is nice out and have to get back in it again when it gets cold.

    We test drove a X5 (I think) and it was fun. The seatbelt auto tightens and the seat cushions kinda hug you when you start the car. I liked the BMW more but it was also like $20k more.

    Biggest complaint I’ve had about Toyota/Lexus is their delayed uptake of android/CarPlay. Do your research, but I believe you need to get into 2019 or later RX350 to get CarPlay.

    The CPU is the difference, as the p5 monitor is light years better than what the Water Rower offers. The WR, wins all the other categories you listed & isn’t an eyesore.

    They burn clean with very little smoke. The only draw back is you have to buck up your wood into pieces smaller than you ordinarily would to keep wood confined to the cylinder. The Yukon may make that a non-issue, but I have the next size down, Bonfire.

    I have found it’s a great pit for burning things like piñon chunks, hanging out on the deck for an hour or so in the evening with wife and family. Not a party type pit, but again Yukon sizing may prove me wrong.

    The Yukon is the same internal size as my "open" pit so I'm hoping it works, that said the cord of wood I got a couple weeks back came cut down into like 8-10" long logs so they should be perfect. My only fear is that I'll have to order more wood, it sounds like this thing just eats it when it's in full burn.
