i’ll add one more: capability. my current truck doesn’t have the space, either inside or outside, for what i want to do with it, nor the power to tow much, hence having an eye toward bigger. Read more

With coupons, the 4x8 harbor freight flatbed kit (with tilt) is under $300, rated for a little over 1200 lbs. Add some plywood, take a weekend to repack the bearings with decent grease, and build it, and you have a good little carrier. Little extra money gets a heavier rating. Registration is cheap, even in CA. Pair Read more

the lady and i have both detested the theater experience for a long time, and have literally only gone to one movie since we started dating...”Machete Kills”. We went on a weekday morning (worked nights at the time), so admission was more reasonable, and not many people there.  haven’t felt anything was really worth Read more

at least here (central CA), hertz wasn’t drastically cheaper the last times i rented from them (compared to budget/avis), and their rental fleet was pretty crap. one visit it was “we can upgrade you to a prius instead of the corolla”, another it was a chevy cruze that looked like someone had been parking by braille Read more

maybe i’m blasphemous, but i do use sharp cheddar for grilled cheese when that’s what we have (it’s always about what we have at the time, but we buy our cheddar in the 2 or 2.5 lb blocks at costco, and alternate between sharp and medium).  never used mayo, though, i’ve always used butter for grilled cheese.

nor am i a fan of musk, and not a tesla fanboi. that said, one of the statements in the chronicle’s coverage pretty much reeked of it being a power issue, rather than 100% a health issue Read more

you know, i WILL give the seller credit for only keywording it for relevant stuff (mostly “dump truck”) instead of 25 or 30 lines of unrelated junk like “sports car truck motorcycle kawasaki chevy honda harley davidson yamaha yugo guitar shirt donkey go kart free”
