Thanks for the nod, man! As you know I’ve been lurking, but not terribly active around here for quite a while. Call it a case of blogging burn-out. Let me think about some ideas, and I’ll shoot you an electronic mail.

Damn, Torch. On some of those, I was, like, “Nah, that’s a totally wrong answer...” I never should have doubted.

Bless you, my son.

All I discovered when I went to Vietnam was more fun on a moped than I ever thought possible, mind-blowing noodles, and beaches that rival any in our local interstellar space.

And yet, somehow, I think you are having more fun than I did. Read more

Yeah, those songs are embedded in my limbic system at this point.

I was extremely lucky to see NMH on their “farewell” tour a few years ago, and at the show I was at they played every track from “In the Aeroplane”, but... out of order. It was disorienting. But still one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

Yeah, I grew up with the unfortunate term “huggies” also - that was in Wyoming, so... who knows.

Such a great band, but I believe the Pavement show I went to remains the absolute worst concert I’ve ever been to. Had to leave early.

My main complaint with Facebook Marketplace is the automatically generated response button that says, “Is this still available?”

This is absolutely the dumbest possible auto-reply. Read more

Eh, why not? I say you’re probably more likely to get stuck in your Crosstrek, than your Wrangler Rubicon. So in this case, the winch might actually prove to be MORE useful on the front of the Subaru.

I heard a rumor that Rico opened his own shop recently! But that’s a good idea, regardless.

This is kind of where I’m headed with this now as well. When I get stuck back into this tomorrow, that’ll be the first thing I tackle, I think. Thanks!

Eh, not a bad idea, actually. I’m going to go back through and make sure all the grounds are good and clean.

Lol, I already ordered the electronic ignition, and I think I am also shading toward a possible battery problem as well. I’ll drop the one from my Suby in there and see what happens.

Hmmm, yeah, good question - currents seems to be fine through the switch, but I will double check that again.

Yeah, I’ve regapped the points like 5 times now, lol. But, I just ordered an electronic ignition for it, so I’m going to just get rid of the damn things all together.

Thanks! All good suggestions for sure - the engine only has about 9000 miles on it after the rebuild a few years ago, and it was running nice and sweet until this problem cropped up, so I’m guessing it’s probably not a compression issue, but I’m going to re-gap my plugs so there’s no harm in sticking the compression Read more
