Two cars purchased, one to go. Only one AirBnB booked, but many more lined up and almost ready to pull the trigger on. Schedule and route are all but final... I think we’re good! This trip is happening.
I can’t tell you what it is, how much I paid for it, when I bought it, or literally any other details... but I bought a car. (We’re keeping the cars secret from each other and the other two read my oppo.)
It has been a good car but the time has come. If anyone on Oppo is interested let me know, I’d probably give a discount to a good home.
As per my last post, we’re buying out next cheap car challenge cars locally, registering them, and then shipping them to Seattle to start our adventures.
As some of you may know, I have a couple cars. Five at the moment. However, the newest of them in a 2013. Not old by any standards, but just now starting to act like not a new car. Little things, like a pressure sensor going back and a slight weirdness at idle. I shouldn’t complain, it has given me six years of almost…
There have been some changes to the plan for our AlCan cheap car challenge, but at least we’re still moving forward.
Behold my “Nissan Rogue or similar”. Nice upgrade but I have opinions about this vehicle.
What a pain in the ass!
As I’ve posted about before, in late August three of us are going to fly to Seattle, buy cheap cars, and then drive them to Anchorage. My question is, where should we stay in the Seattle area?

As a follow up to my morning post about trying to get Windows 10 on my cheap Windows 7 laptop, I figured I’d post my troubleshooting techniques.
After my quest for a cheap Thinkpad, no I don’t know why I want one, started poorly, I spent the weekend pouring over eBay listings trying to find a good alternative.
I don’t know what was included as part of the “renewing” process, but apparently cleaning wasn’t.
Item has shown “shipped” on Amazon since the 5th, but USPS said the label had been printed but the item not shipped. Until today....
I don’t always pretend to be a mad
scientist engineer, but when I do I go full mad scientist engineer.
This is about on par with calling a Malibu a “Full Sized” sedan.
Don’t get me wrong, I really like this car. It is quirky, ergonomic, surprisingly comfortable, and well made. It, however, was never meant to have a permanent place in my garage.
This is only the second time I’ve seen so many cars I want to buy in one place.
One wet Alfa.
