On my ride up the coast yesterday, I needed to pull over and make a call. First, however, some information was required, and I had to open Google. This network seemed to be available.
Currently, I am in the process of scanning old slides and photographs. It is a very long and tedious job. Anyway, I came across some old pictures of my 1963 VW 11-Window Westfalia Van. These were taken at the Badlands in the early stages of an 11,335 mile cross-country trip during the 1980s.
Well, here is our new 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with a 6-speed manual transmission, STI strut tower brace, and STI alloy wheels.
Missed it by 3 miles.
There were a lot of Jeeps at New Smyrna Beach yesterday. It was not very sunny; but the temperature was in the mid-80s, the humidity was low, and there was a mild breeze – overall, a very nice day.

Cleaning the garage the other day, I came across two ceramic apples sitting in the back of a shelf. It is amazing how two simple objects can evoke such strong memories and emotions.
Some traffic signs from a few days ago.
Like most kids of my generation, I had a fascination with motor vehicles that started well before I was legally able to drive. The attraction continues to this day, and it has been the motivation behind my owning some interesting cars and bikes over the years. None of them were exotic or expensive, but a lot of them…
The owner of this Honda should have 50 caliber (or larger) flash suppressors fitted around the ends of these towing points. Others would likely use turn signals and exhibit more courteous driving behavior.
My truck has become a meeting place for Cardinals, who like to leave their calling cards. I was tired of washing the long white trails off of the paint, so I tried this, and it really works.
