How hot is that? you think average June-August Phoenix temps would do? :)

The worst one I've been in was on the outskirts of Reno.

I had to go look it up. Motel 6 Reno - Livestock NV. Never go there :)

I can't be certain, but 120 degrees seems to be what I remember. So, a box in the sun in the middle of the yard should do it!

Raise your hands if you're tired of gusting wind.

I've been to two of the Clevelands, that I remember (TN, OH).

Mojo31 04-11-22 10:13 AM

Been to one. Don't care if I never see another.

Also, tired of wind, gusty or otherwise.

Iíve stayed in 2. Youngstown, OH, and Clarion, PA. They were both decent. The rooms had clearly been remodeled recently.

I rode through Cleveland, OH, crossing the country. Decent place.

surprisingly I have never had bed bugs. I have seen one in my time at the airlines. Thank god it must have been left behind or something but I have personally never been bit by bed bugs.

I have been bit my spiders multiple times.

Wind makes power. Embrace it. No other way to keep the EV rolling.

I'm surprised I haven't either, being a huge fan of cheep motels.

Some of my coworkers check the bed, I donít even bother. If the luggage rack isnít already set up my bag goes on the floor.

Noticed something today. Zero wind condition, flat ground I was putting out 140 watts at 96 rpm and was holding 18 mph.

Seems crazy that when I go harder and my power increases by 100 watts I only go 3 mph faster.

Just an observation, today I was really trying to keep the zone power at 2. Made hills take forever.

Wut?

I just plug it in. I don't need any wind to do that!

Seriously, there is also electricity produced by solar, natural gas, coal, steam turbines (nuclear and other), water turbines, etc. Less than 10% of electricity generation comes from wind.

I listened to a podcast back in 2009 about bedbugs. Essentially, it said that if you get them, burn your house down with all of your contents. I assume that means your cars, too. :lol:

A FB friend I went to high school with had to deal with them at home.I think they cooked the house twice.

Burn it with fire is the answer to all of life's problems.

I'm all for being friendly on the environment but, if we had bed bugs in the house, I totally mustard gas the place if I thought it would do the trick.

Yup, that's the way air resistance works - power requirements ramp up exponentially. The difference between 13 and 15 is negligible, the difference between 20 and 22 is significant.

Watch it there whippersnapper.

There's hardly any wind power generation here. Had there been, we could have powered the entire US the last month, probably.

Except fire.

I might get to road test the 09 tonight! It's beautiful outside but will rain around 6pm. Gotta get outahere!

ls01 04-11-22 12:16 PM

My sister brought the bed bugs to my parents house when she lived there. She is/was a councilor for drug addiction and picked them up at a client's home. Cost for eradication was 5k. And a butt ton of work cleaning sorting etc.
