It really is a great 360 degree camera, and the party tricks it does are at an all time high. Odd that it doesn’t have the full digital dash though.
it was a joke, I’m fully aware that the state of Georgia has no ski slopes.
This is correct, that’s what’s happening. I used to manage a property that had a chair lift. These things have at least two brakes a motor one and an emergency manual one which was just a big-ass lever you put all your weight on.
I’m a Chrysler hater for reasons, but this thing looks outstanding. Mature design that seems more grown up than Ford’s (and I like the F150) and GM’s newest releases. And it really surprises me that it looks great and useful in all its trims. Usually the low-content entry level trucks look meh, but here it appears the…
This truck is 5200lbs already and you want us to put in steel door handles?
There was so much to cram in here I didn’t even get to talk about how interesting it is that Ram, arguably the progenitor of the “bro truck” and definitely the first mainstream pickup to intentionally look “aggressive” now has the friendliest face of all half-tons.
A little lowkey extrapolation...
An Elise is a cool car and they will never be able to build something like that again. If you fit in it and can deal with the minimalism then go for it.
I think there are big swaths of the country where people are going to make pretty quick judgments about the moral character of someone who rolls up in a BMW or Mercedes, or even a Caddy or Lincoln....who basically view someone driving a vehicle with a luxury badge as perceiving themselves as being better than everyone…
Well, he was part of the first crew to step back inside this thing after 17 years of being buried in the ice. And his buddy was on the C-130 that crashed during the salvage effort (I think the two of them actually switched flights that day but I’d have to ask).
The 4Runner’s better for me. The Disco’s a fine machine.
I laughed waaaayyyy too hard at this.
DONT YOU TALK ABOUT MY Z71 OFFROAD 4X4 LIKE THAT
12 years here! McMurdo, Palmer Station (2 winters), South Pole (14 months), RV/IB Nathanial B. Palmer for two down and around. Oh, the memories... and all the great motorcycle rides in New Zealand and OZ.
We used to make those Jatos back in the day. I also refurb’d a bunch of 50's era Jatos for the Blue Angels’ Fat Albert when I first started working.
They went with white so it would be harder for the penguins to see. They get jealous of the ability to fly, and since they outnumber humans down there, you don’t want to get on their bad side.
Nah, I’m not gonna say its never happened, but generally taking a piss outside was verboten. Cant contaminate the environment. If you’re not near a bathroom, you better have a “P bottle” (standard 20 oz nalgene with a “p” written on it in sharpie) nearby to go in. Easier said than done for half the population.
I worked there 14-15 and 15-16 as a light vehicle and heavy equipment mechanic! Good times and many, many jump starts.
Anyone ever get frostbitten taking a piss?
I spent last (austral) winter down at MCM. While they’re not doing winter flights this year, they did last year, and seeing a C-17 do a NVG landing on a pitch black ice runway is something else.
