Don't sweat it Casey - many people (if not most, these days) fail to understand the difference between being cheap and being frugal.

P.S. Using exposed tires as fenders is cheap. There are alternatives, as noted here, that work as well and don't look so trashy and scuff boats.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
