A friend’s shiny diesel Ford for your time:
Normally I wouldn’t post a pic of a non-M E46. But I couldn’t miss this (these):
But seriously, over the summer I probably drink too much. It’s just all that Fun in the Sun (TM) and time at the lake, not to mention very late sunsets, warm nights, cool nights, rainy nights, ok I don’t really need an excuse to enjoy an adult beverage. It’s good I have a wife, kids, and job to keep myself in check…
Actually, this is the one place those yellow protectors make sense, because renters are going to scrape the bumpers up. Might as well leave them on!
Not content to let our week at the lake go quietly, we spent the day there yesterday, too. Our plan was to go out with a friend for lunch at the island where she lives, or maybe in the boat. Then go to a beach, then home for dinner. Instead, we picked her up at 11:15 and went to another island, where we stayed...…
Moved home today but not before an epic lake day.
We’re staying at a family-owned lake house this week but still going to work. That part sucks but at least when I get out of work, we go places like this:
As we’re staring out at the water, it’s amazing how dead calm it is - like a swimming pool - and despite the fact that this week is among the very busiest on the lake, only a few boats have passed since I got home at 5:00pm. The thing is, when the forecast shows rain - and especially when it’s right - people just…
That says, “when you sell your car I will buy it...” because I came close yesterday.
*Only, not. I’m staying at a family house on a lake but it’s 15 minutes from our normal house and my wife and I are both still going to work... maybe taking Friday off.

Sparcos on a Volvo wagon? A quick google image search shows me a few overland-y Volvos with these wheels. But what about for a daily-driven dad wagon? Too wanna-be-overland-but-actually-just-going-to-preschool ... ? Or what. I dunno just thinking about a second set of wheels so I can get dedicated snows and swap…
*If you count immediate family who doesn’t live with me.

Just spent a week with this view outside my bedroom window:
May or may not totally disconnect from the internet minus essential services like google maps and looking up fun things to do. We’re spending a week on a lake with two other families. Should be fun, chaotic, exhausting, wonderful.
20 years ago this might as well have been a rendering of the International Space Station:
I just sold my lovely blue E46 wagon about a month ago. I spent the proceeds on a good full cover for my boat and a mountain bike, the latter of which I just got Tuesday. I *may* have posted about it here once or twice.
Since it’s supposed to be super hot the next couple days, and I’m all kinds of psyched about my new bike, I did something I’ve never done before. I woke up at 5:30 (made coffee for wife and waited for her to finish her workout before leaving), was on my bike by 6:30, on top of this mountain by 7:15. Then the best…
