First off.....a big thanks to y'all. Great forum....great site....great help for newbies !
I bought my first G-shock right before Uncle Sam threw me a welcome party (aka Basic). It was my best friend thru sand, surf and sweat. It was loyal to me for eight years and as I wind down my service, the EL finally is gone - probably the battery. She deserves a place of honor and will of course get spiffed up at by what seems to be the good folks at Casio Sales & Service.
In the meantime...I figured it was time for a new one. My G was always my faithful - Can Do.
After reading all the great posts here I really came to further appreciate the G line. Enter my brand spankin new Muddy ! Ain't she a beauty - and man does that fit nice. Most comfortable watch I've had !
So you gotta a new member. Course we all still have a soft spot for shiny, expensive watches - but man do I love putting on a G shock (new or old) and doing whatever I gotta do without a single care in the world.
Now...enough o that soft stuff - someone gimme a drink o that Kool aid !
