The Zestimate is akin to Strava power. It is likely in the ballpark but has major limitations. I believe their algorithm is quite stupid and based on local comps and price per square foot. Does not reflect detailed neighborhood (eg busy street vs cul-de-sac) or upgrade status of roof/windows/exterior/kitchen/bathrooms etc. Caveat Emptor.

Our rides these days start in the boondocks, so no problem to jettison the liquid ballast just before the start.

Oh yeah but what I was posting were listings, I thought, not price estimates for houses not on the market. That'd be a whole disaster. When we sell this place we'll let our realtor set the price, which she's been very good at.

We start right out the door, so no difference there.

How far do you live from the boondocks?

Pretty close. I actually ride to the start. And by boondocks I mean you can go for a long ride and not have any traffic lights or traffic to speak of. You might even lose your cellular signal for a bit.

Missed the post pics of yourself.

Believe it or not, those glasses are the small size.

A good guess on my part. :lol:

That way, if I don’t die from the sudden impact of car meets body, I can suffocate slowly from my helmet.


Contingency plan.

never heard of it.

Mrs Abshipp's AC has once again stopped working in her car. 2012 Ford Escape.

Seems like every 1.5-2 weeks it stops working. We take it to a shop, they have so far (1) recharged, (2) replaced expansion valve, (3) did something to the computer because the compressor wasn't turning on.

It just stopped working again. When the car is turned on, after 5 seconds the compressor kicks on and air blows cold but between 5-15 seconds after engine start the air blows hot.

The shop that's been working on it has been very helpful as far as not charging us for repeated visits since they haven't yet fixed it, but I think we may need to go elsewhere now. No AC down here is just not sustainable :notamused:

An older one.

windows down, speed 55 mph. Problem solved.



I don’t have AC either. It sucks.

Our club rides have started at the college in Northridge since before I joined in 1989. Always a building open for restrooms until last year.

With humidity to match.

Reminds me of this classic.
Fun fact:Billy Joe Royal grew up in nearby Marietta.

LesterOfPuppets 08-22-21 07:52 PM

We're only about 1.25 miles from the nearest horse, dunno if I'd call it the boondocks though.
