  1. Going from sundown zv5 to find btl neo

  2. SSA's Daily fitness iHop

    Almost 10 years LEO now, and fixing to up my activity as I'm moving to a larger department, pending the remaining psych interview (just completed a 900 question written interview) and medical exam. Passed the physical abilities exam. New department is a Department of Public Safety , so I will get cross trained in firefighting. Took the entire physical abilities test in full turn out gear, except 1 mile run. Heart rate never got above 150, so I know the lifting/running is working. Now to lose this stubborn ass spare tire.
  3. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    True that!! Lmao, jamming to stuff we wouldn't even consider today.... Speaking of...might be time for a Funky Pup mention....lol
  4. SSA's Daily fitness iHop

    Except for planned rest days, I don't know what to do with myself if I don't lift. And honestly, running everyday I lift has ingrained that into the routine. Although I cripe, I look forward to it. Being an asthmatic, I know every minute running is only helping me out! Not too mention when the bad guys are confused as fuck that the old guy is still on their heels, lol....
  5. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    As I sit and think about it, he had a Spark-o-Matic power booster thing, 3-ways in the front, 6x9's in boxes in the trunk and some small speakers on the rear deck. Those had some weird slide adjustable volume control thing. But that little car beat pretty good.
  6. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Man, I remember Sunshine Audio, Pueblo, CO, did a Astro van with 4 15's. Left front and first row rear seats in it. Sat in the rear at the State Fair, God I was in heaven!! Was Kicker gear. Just had to have it. Friend of mine had a little two door Toyota, Blauphunk (spell?) head unit, and are you sitting down? Spark-o-Matic for speakers/subs! It was actually pretty loud and musical. Well, by 1986 or so, standards,,,,lol

    It's definitely hard to stay motivated to run. Lifting is easy, but running?
  8. SSA's Daily fitness iHop

    Got arms and run in last night. Run definitely getting easier...which is a good thing. Trying to change departments, involves some running for the physical testing.
  9. SSA's Daily fitness iHop

    This afternoon will be my first day back in 1.5 weeks, flu + asthma = severe asskicking! Just prior, was lifting/running 2 days, rest, 2 days, rest 2. I stretch and run for 20 minutes just before lifting. I've still got gut to lose and other gains to make..lol. At 46, I'm in better shape then my 20's, save cardio. Also, I'm 50pds heavier, so only grabbing the rim now...lol.

  13. R.I.P. grandpa

    Just over three years ago, my family went through the same thing. I know your pain, and I, along with my family, wish you and yours strength and peace during this tough time. Grandpa was the center of our family, and it's been quiet without him. He was my son's best friend. I wish you all well, and my your grandfather rest in peace. wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (for even though this is a sad time, we must remember, and rejoice, in the good times.)
  14. SSA Customer Rewards Program

    Very nice guys!! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  15. This Ship Has Sailed!

    Wow, talk about a car audio loss! Mike set the bar so high in terms of customer service, very few, SSA being one of the few, will ever get close. Mike, you will be missed as much as your stellar products, if not more so. Was it really 7 years ago I took a chance on a relatively unknown company called SoundSplinter and rolled the dice on the rl-p 12 for the wife's car? A subwoofer I still own to this day. A subwoofer, that coupled with Mike's customer service absolutely won me over. Sealed, ported, didn't matter, it produced. Then I got the first rl-i8, signed by the man himself, available for the public. A sub I still own, and use in a small, .17ft^3 net sealed box on my gaming tv/stereo set up. Everyone freaks out when they hear it, and realize it's just an 8. It, like Mike, is just that badass! Mike, I can't believe this has happened to such a great guy. I hope you get the financial side figured out, and like the other's have said before, I hope you find a way to get back into the business! We, and the business as a whole, will miss ya man! Stay in touch, my email hasn't changed! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
