Great Trip Log! I thought it was really funny when I saw your tire carrier! I wasn't 100% sure if it was you or not, because the chances of you being here in KY were really small, and me actually seeing you drive by would be the needle in the haystack!! I told my wife that I was about to turn around a run you down!! Lol! Your truck was a real head turner though! I noticed your truck straight away as you were passing the Schnitzel Barn German Restaurant and immediately thought it had to be you! Glad you had a safe a fun trip! Wish we could have met! Maybe next time! Lol!

Thanks.

What a coincidence that you saw me driving by. It would have really been great if I had noticed you too and stopped to say hi.

During the trip, I told my wife it would be great if I was lucky to meet someone from the forum and say hi to them. She asked me how on earth would I be able to meet someone from the forum randomly on such a cross-country trip. I said well, my Armada kind of stands out in its own way. Chances are if a forum member has seen my Armada on the forum and sees it on the freeway, I am sure they will easily recognize it and may honk, wave or pull up next to me to say hi. So, it was a big surprise to me and her when I showed her your PM, when you emailed me to say that you saw us.

It would have been one in a lifetime meets.

Heck yea, hope you taken the Go Pro, be sure and send me the link or share the vids, pic. Really looking forward to hear how the Armada does off road, Its built for it, Your brave to not having a 4x4, but if you pick and choose your trails you should be ok. I like the Gas can Idea. Better to have than to need and not have.

I have been in Canada now for almost a week. I never knew we had it good on the freeway in the US until I realized the highway rules in Canada. I had to stop and take pics.

I wonder how it would be like if these same things were posted on US highways. I am guessing there might be a lot of law suits.

The maximum speed I say on the highways was 100kmph which is 62mph for us in the US. I don't see americans being happy with such number since we have freeways with speed limits of 75mph, 80mph and even 85mph, the highest I saw in Canada is 62mph.

But even with that posted speed, the Canadians were all doing about 120kmph which is about 75mph for us. So basically most of them were going above the speed limit. Oh then guess which drivers I noticed going faster than that? You best believe american drivers.

What was too interesting is that throughout the trip, I couldn't even find a single cop car on the highway. The most threatening thing I saw were these speed signs with fines if you were caught going so fast. Also, the signs saying there is a helicopter patrol that checks speed. Well, I looked hard for the helicopter and after over 1,000km driving in Canada, I couldn't find any. Maybe next time.

Got some new lights from China today. These are supposedly a new design and Bought from ebay. Will try to go to the park and put on my Armada to see how it looks compared to the hid ones I currently have.

This is what I just bought


So now I have these 2 to compare for myself. I may do that tonight.

I had time to go to the park for a quick photo shoot. The light output is basically the same. But startup is truly quick and instant on the led compared to the hid.

Built my house and closed on it 2 days ago. Then went ahead and installed porcelain tiles in my car garage for my Armada and my wife's Altima. My wife loves it very much. Jut wanted to share pics with you guys.

Attaching the link to my thread with more pics.

So you probably live in the area also. If you can honk or wave, do not hesitate to do so. I know when I am driving my Armada, when I see another Armada I always wonder if they are on the forum or not and I am always tempted to say hello.

It is with a heavy heart that I decided to sell my 2010 Armada SE today for a 2009 Nissan Armada LE. My 2010 has 90,500 miles as I sold it today, for a 2009 which has 96,000 miles. I kept all my accessories and sold my Armada without the roofrack or the tire carrier. I will need them for my next Armada.

Link to the thread...

I will be flying in 3 days from Texas to Arkansas to buy the car and drive 9 hours back home on same day. Here are a few pictures of my Armada I will hopefully buy it on friday, if seller does not change his mind. It has a great carfax report and it is a one-owner vehicle. I look forward to my trip on friday. I had to take off work just to have time to make this trip, so I hope this will be a fruitful trip.

A few pictures of hopefully my next Armada...

She's A Beauty!

She's a beauty Petit... sporting the chrome wheels as well!

About your '09 SE, you really tricked her out as a serious off road, out back cruiser, with light bar to boot, really work horse looking. I really wished you wouldn't quite go all the way the same route with this one though, she looks so pretty, I wouldn't want her character to be changed that radically.....Now if it were a Titan by all means you'd have my approval!.......

Ah! ....... All this is just my own personal opinion though, shes your beauty give her the treatments you see fit, my man,......she's yours to enjoy, no one else's least of all me...........Just make sure you don't roast the transmission........ as I freaking did mine!

I plan on giving Thunder Maker the chrome wheel treatment amongst other things. But I'll buy like the Eagle Alloy type 079 or Motto Metal type MO951, 18 x 9s, placing on them ultimately 305/60' Terra Grapplers from Nitto or at least 285/65s if the other tire size is not available, for traction.


I'll be telling you what plan on putting on my Armada soonest on the forum.

Regards

Victor
