    I agree with your thought on the a DIY section. A web based medium is much better suited to handle that sort of thing.

    Well my book should be here in about 3 days, so I will check it out then...I actually got it for my dad (along with a WB Traveler and a used UQ) but I just may have to order one for myself as well. I will definitely be looking through the book before it exchanges hands.

    I will give my opinion then.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    What, wait, your book DOES have a DIY section back in the back. I take my fancy shmancy cell phone, hold it over page 124 where there are these interesting looking, blotchy square things and Violet Hammock Forums pops up on my phone.

    Can't get much more current then that!

    ps, you know I've never used that scanner thing till now? I giggled and the guys at Tires Plus looked very condescending at me.

    Haha! Thanks MrClean! Yes, the QR codes are great for extended the book digitally. I'm glad it worked for you!
