All cars are faster when they are clean and shiny. Fast ones are just faster.

Spring?

June through November. Also hurricane season, though here, August tends to be our local hurricane season. In Belize it trended later. October/November.

Yesterday felt like winter; today feels like autumn.

I hand wash the minivans, but I use a brush for the roofs - too lazy to break out the ladder for wash day.

You scoff at the hand wash, but that's all I do (except for the Jeep). I have a cabinet in my garage dedicated to detailing supplies.

Not really scoffing at the hand wash, more just surprised at the way they said clean it with special equipment. They did value the paint at $50K.
If I had a nice car I would clean it more than once per year. When I was working I could wash my cars there. They had DI water and every product you could think of. If I helped one of the porters with their car they would clean mine for me.

I wouldn't know. If it's crappy enough out there to have a dirty truck, I'm not going fast. If it's nice, so are our trucks. They're not Porsche fast, but they're definitely faster than a lot of trucksters out there.

No cake? :(

Truth be told, it's not my birthday, but thanks anyway. I remember giving Facebook a bum BD for security reasons, but not here.

Where did you see that posted, I looked through my profile but it's not listed there. My real BD is Nov 26.

we have something in common. Today is not my birthday either.

2 out of 3 Dougs agree!

I used to use something like this on the boat when I needed some reach.

Tacos are cool trucks. Considered one when I got the current Jeep, but it wouldn’t fit in that garage spot.

Another successful band practice. It's all coming together.

Money for Nothing coming along?

LesterOfPuppets 04-19-22 08:37 PM

L'Anse Bay ice report. Man, it sure is tempting to go up there this summer, but work in exchange for rent just doesn't sound like that good of a deal, unless it's just like 10 hours a week of work.

Hey, we got another ice report from Mound!

Going there at all isn't a good deal.

They don't call it Lake Superior for nothing.

Typing that made this pop in my head all of the sudden. I spent a couple of years in the early '90s in a subterranean tavern in NW Portland where this was on HEAVY rotation on the jukebox. I've probably listened to it more times than the Beatles version.

This, however, is. Makes you want to dance, eh?

Couple of nice F-35 pics, flying out of Hill AFB last week.
