Dogs are the one place I would be tempted by an RV. I drove across country with 6 dogs, 3 cats and 3 kids (I would have needed a Yurt from Harry Potter to camp), and RV would have been a pain to drive, but the hotel clerks might not have shot us so many dirty looks.
I see your point. I think the thing that I’ve wondered about is my old neighbors. Out of that dozen or so RVs I saw.. I don’t remember any of them missing during weekends or the like. A lot seemed to be garage queens, which REALLY doesn’t make sense for something that likely costs $50k even used.
The imperial system makes sense in certain places. Well, not sense, but is more standardized. I work with steam. When all the piping, fittings, flow formulas and the like were standardized, Imperial Units were used. For example a standard run of the mill 1" pipe is around 1.05" inside, while a standard DN25 pipe is…
The issue is that, as you said, not everywhere is Seattle.
3rd gear. I’m not sure I’m digging the idea of the first public road automated vehicles weighing 40 tons. I see why it is logical that this will be our first AVs, but I’m not sure I want a computer problem impacting a semi.

It’s like WWE with Car faces. We have a battle royale going here.
I lived on the other side of WA for a while. There is a lot of cool stuff within a 4 hour drive of that area. I can see how, assuming the traffic isn’t too insane, you can get to some really cool places in 2-3 hours of driving from Seattle.
Yeah, math error. I wouldn’t get this for a traditional 5 day a week job, drive on Saturday, camp Saturday night, drive back on Sunday sounds like not a restful vacation. If I had a 9/80 or a 4/10 job where I had regular 3 day weekends... maybe.
I don’t understand vacation math. I get 3 weeks off a year. If I combine it with the holidays, I have of 5 weeks or 25 days off a year.
I worked for a German company. They had a central planning board that was equal parts of the investors, the managers, and the unions. Major decisions had to get agreement of this board. If VW is organized similarly, having a Union to represent the workers in a central board would be desired. The problem I have with…
And I don’t understand the obsession of the UAW with that plant. Just thinking off the top of my head, I can think of Nissan, GM (old Saturn Plant), Toyota/Mazda, Honda, M-B all within 2-3 hours of driving from Chattanooga. I think the GM plant is UAW, but I don’t think any of the others are. The UAW has fought to…
Years ago, my van was in the shop (deer) and the rental place gave me an F-150. Meh. A week into the van repairs and a basketball backboard fell on the F-150 during a storm. Replacement was a Ram. The Ram had the air suspension and it was dramatically nicer to drive than the F-150. Don’t know how reliable the air…
GM is trying to out-Toyota Toyota. GM saw the “Imperial Death Star” Toyota and raised it with “Frank took 8 oxys and forgot to take his Movantik” Silverado.
Seems logical. A Hummer that Hums.
My sister went from a public school to a private school. Many private schools have nearly no funding. Hers is a Catholic school in a depressed area and is funded by charity not the students. She took a 50% pay cut to switch to that school and loves it. But many teachers cannot afford these massive pay cuts required.
I’ve worked with union guys and non-union guys. The unions that ensure the workers are well-trained, certified, and treated well (like the IBEW) are popular with their members.
“Today my innocence was destroyed. I have just found out that some internet videos are fake.” D.J.T.
Admittedly, the Note comes with more features standard and the price difference is something like $1000 or so typically with the same cars at the same package, but on the super cheap side, sedans are cheaper. No idea why.
Most of the “Smoke” appears to me to be from a fire extinguisher. At the beginning of the video, there appears to be a lot of powder from a dry one already on the ground. Given the car is carbon fiber, if I was the driver and a bit of smoke leaked out, I wouldn’t mess around and keep dumping extinguishers until I knew…
