I've never been to that area but I sure hope to someday because that's where both sides of my family stem from.

Time to welcome a bunch of new members and thank the old ones for making this the best off road community on G+. We have been getting somewhere between 20-40 requests per day with only a few rejections (spam-bots or no profile info).* Please familiarize yourself with the subcategories on the drop down.* This helps to keep the post relevant to your audience's interests and makes searching easier. Thanks again for joining, posting, reading, and discussing. It's what makes this community great.

Also, I am going to begin switching the header picture every once in awhile to a user submitted picture. I'm going to try to pick original content and not reposted photos from another source. By posting a photo in this community, I'm going to assume it is okay for me to use this content as a header photo. If you notice I have used your photo and would like it removed, please let me know.

I've promoted a few new moderators to this community. I also spent about two hours cleaning house. Hopefully you will now see more relevant posts and a cleaner stream. Please welcome +Tanner Carpenter +Dan Cole & +Tammy -JeepMomma. Now some of you didn't ask to be moderators. If you don't want this status, please let me know and I will remove it. Basically I noticed several (if not most) of your posts were getting caught by the spam filter. This will prevent that from happening.

Have an iPhone6 or 6+ on +AT&T and some numbers are showing up as "Unknown" even though they may be in your contacts? Here's how to fix it.

- Call 800-331-0500 and go to tech support. It's helpful if you call from a different phone.

- Ask the tech support person to add the Voice Over LTE Caller ID (VOLTECID) feature. They will probably not have a clue what you are talking about and send you to the next level up. That's fine because this is the person that can fix it.

- After they add it, they will have you reboot your phone and have someone give you a test call (use someone that you know shows up as unknown).

- Problem solved.

LAND ROVER DISCOVERY  - 
 
So I'm heading out to look at a '95 Disco that sounds too good to be true. The mechanic who is selling it for the lady says the only thing wrong with it is the oil pump is starting to get weak. I'm a Jeep guy and not really familiar with Land Rovers. How difficult of a task is it replace? He says other than that, he's rebuilt the motor, repaired all rust and stuff like that. He has painted the roof, but not the rest. He says the interior needs to be freshened up but there aren't any tears. The rest of it needs to be painted as well. 

Here's his CL ad: 

I have put 15k into the vehicle including rebuilding the engine, the only thing I didn't replace is the oil pump and now it's getting weak. The lady says it has to go so it is going cheap. It has new tires and I have an extra set of wheels for another $250. I don't expect it to last long at this price. It runs and drives and has a new A/C compressor to boot. There are a few things left that need to be done to it, but it's pretty well finished. $1675

Staff was nice and the room was clean. It is a bit dated (think late 80's to early 90's. Although the TV's were antiques, they worked and there were two of them. The kids really enjoyed the pool and access to the beach is amazing. It is the Chesapeake Bay, so the water is pretty calm. For dinner and breakfast I highly suggest Hot Tuna and Citrus, both are within walking distance and were awesome.

Sticky carpet, electrical shorts in the lamps, a shower curtain that only covers half the shower, 50/50 shot of picking a working electrical outlet and a warm refrigerator. What's not to like?

The food was soooo much better when it was The Burger Stand. Now it's trying to be what it was and falling flat. I'll stick with The Burger Stand.

NO MORE BUFFET and a raging upset stomach. I've eaten here countless times for the buffet and always enjoyed it. On this trip however, we learned they have stopped doing the buffet and the menu now matches the one on 23rd St. The buffet was really the only reason to go, now that it is gone I don't think I will be back. The GI issue was just the icing on the porcelain cake. Our entrees were brought out one at a time with a good 5-8 minute gap between each person. By the time the 4th person got their dinner, the first person was finished eating. The first order wasn't complete and the rest of her order was brought out with the 4th person's plate....20+ minutes later. The food was just okay. I would even call it average for buffet food....but this wasn't a buffet. The staff is still friendly, but unless they are deciding to get out of the restaurant industry and into the "lets be friends business", they need to make some significant changes.

It's hard to believe that for years Lawrence was lacking in the breakfast department. Mirth has been added to my short list of places to start my day. They have a great self-service coffee bar and the sweet potato hash is amazing.
