I have a grand plan to drive to Denali next summer (2020). Actually “plan” isn’t accurate, as that implies thought beyond “I’m totally going to probably do that”. Since I don’t own the slammed Outback pictured above, I need to choose a vehicle to coerce into my delusional adventure. I’m a little hesitant to take the…
Good thing my wife bought this lifted FJ. The parking lot at the trail head had some formidable potholes, and it was easier to find in the Costco parking lot.
My wife has been hating her Crosstour since I bought it a few years ago. Abbreviated version of the story- we were moving back from overseas and I picked it out on CarMax so she’d have a car on arrival- and like some of my other gifts, it was not a hit. Live and learn. At least she kept the engagement ring- so far.…
Quote from an article about local car thieves targeting Subarus: “whose 2000 Subaru Impreza went missing Feb. 7 out of the Vapor Lounge parking lot near the Shadle Walmart.”
I took my youngest son to the local manufacturer auto show this weekend. Lots of drooling over the M2, RS5, Cayman GTS, and an R8. Nissan had the prime position by the entrance, and you know what they had?
This is even the ultra-desirable V8 model.
“Hey dad, you remember that CO2 dragster event at school we signed up for?”
Driving back from the local ski place today. My life is really great right now, but this demonstrates that there is always room for improvement. This guy is always there, probably laughing at all the trucks on 33’s with MTFU stickers in the parking lot.
This is Peak Mall Parking.
Ironically I’m on foot. Oh well.
Nothing says dignity like being a lotto and caffeine-shot dispenser. This is like seeing the old guy delivering pizzas. Better fate than Oldsmobile I guess...
Surprisingly, not Trump related.
If these good boys don’t make you smile, maybe we shouldn’t be friends. Have a nice week everyone.
And I bagged one.
Pop culture has moved on without me. I’m ok with that, but occasionally I see something that piques my curiosity. For example, this decal:
It looks better in photos than in real life, but hopefully my day job will keep me from having to make it as a dry wall installer. Next I need a workbench and some better lighting. I’m still undecided on whether I want to do something with the floor- maybe one of those acrylic or polyamide coatings, and would…
My mom drove up this past week, and surprised me with a dozen boxes of my dad’s books. My older brothers got his tools, but that’s ok. He and I and didn’t have a good relationship until near the end, but he loved reading and that was one of our points of connection.
Montana in particular. I have cross-stitching imprints on my butt. 3275.7 miles later I have arrived at my new home. Highlights include the Little Bighorn memorial and finding that when I leave my wife and youngest son unsupervised we get a new cat.
From Maryland to Rapid City, so far. Detour to Moline to pay homage to the John Deere headquarters- my dad worked for Deere for most of his life, so I basically grew up in his shop and this was a highlight for me. Cool stuff so far:
