No, they want the body, UHaul never lets these things change hands so that theres no incentive for anyone to steal them, since there’s no legitamate excuse/path to having one without a rental contract in hand.

They are great but UHaul has a solid reason not to re-sell them. If theres no mechanism for anyone besides UHaul to ever own one legitmately then there’s no point in stealing them, because without a rental contract or employment with UHaul, you’re a theif, 99.99% of the time with one of these behind your vehicle.

I always explain that motorcycles have a lot more in common with modern skis than they do cars as far as how fast someone can go on them. All decent skis are good but better ones wont make the average skiier much faster materially - skill is 10x more important. Old powder hounds on ancient sticks will blow your doors Read more

For the sort of lower speed off-roading a Bronco is designed for as opposed to a baja inspired rig like a raptor, N/A is better becuase no turbo threshold and no turbo lag. Throttle response is key. Desert style off-roading is the opposite, you’re in the throttle all the time and the turbos are spooled. Read more

I’m a die hard manual fan but for slow speed crawling/technical terrain torque converters make life a lot easier. No burning the clutch and no loss of torque while shifting at really low speeds means no loss of momentum. The same reason torque converters exist in the first place is what makes them very useful for Read more

Is mountain climbing worth it? Free climbing? Cave diving? Motorcycle racing? Wingsuiting? All activities plenty of people do without any likelihood of a world record that they consider worth it.

Coronavirus got me to finally get off my ass and ditch my Comcast bundled internet for the standalone gig service I can get in my area. Fuck me, I wish I’d done this before - I can save a 50gb file to Google Drive faster than it saves to an external HDD (SSD > gig > cloud is faster.) Maybe this will be the push that Read more

Five of those six came from a retirement home and were 75+ all with significant geriatric health issues. The other was not from the home but was also an older woman with underlying health issues. Read more

Every Sherpa blanket will eventually wind up full of crumbs, hair, and various detritus. Anything that is impossible to clean properly - is gross.

This is the kind of joke a creepy uncle makes about his nieces after picking them up from soccer practice and then goes “hurrrr nobody gets humor anymore!”

These sorts of AWD systems are designed to get Mom unstuck from her snowy parking spot outside of soccer practice, not smoothly initiate oversteer while hooning a sports car in the snow.
