*thinks I’ll get so much done today!*
I know you’ve heard me make this rant and see this macan before but this one really drives it home
Sand boarding. This is, apparently, still a thing people think is cool and outdoorsy in almost 2019? To anyone who’s never tried sandboarding, its not popular for a reason. Does the truck come with a case of surge and a couple of sweet burned mix CD’s?
Im supposed to relay the best advice I’ve ever gotten in one sentence for a work thing.
This is my Grandma, she wanted me to come with her to pick out her brand new TJ. That was a fun car. We put it into limp mode with a CEL light on with 500 miles on the ODO going through mud puddles in Moab. it was idling at 2500 rpm and we had to use the brakes to slow down through town. It cleared up and drove…
