Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If I was on Strava then and you could see all the miles being ridden.

A block is not seven miles long.

Nope. You said "East Coast" though. Even construing that very narrowly, there is a large area of the East Coast where cars don't rust.

My Ranger and Mrs. LAJ's Ranger didn't have a spec of rust on it. Obviously, your east coast sled does, hence my revulsion to actually touching it.

The Saturn’s side panels never rust because plastic. Looks like a few bubbles under the paint on the hood suggestive of rust but no biggie. For 23 years old, it looks pretty good.

When I finished school, I took my ancient, rusted Celica to trade it in. Cut the deal on the new car, and asked about the trade in. The guy looked at me and said, “The thing has cancer. We’ll only charge you $50 to haul it off.”

It was 10 years old, so it was really cheap. It passed inspection. You could see the ground through the trunk, and smell the exhaust in the cabin. I remember riding with her, about an hour to her family's home in Syracuse, and smelling the exhaust - well laced with partially burned gas - this was a 1969 Chevelle, after all. I wonder whether we arrived in Syracuse with rosy cheeks from the carbon monoxide.

Didn't even have it up for sale. Two different people stopped and asked if I wanted to sell it. I haven't used it for quite a while, so I sold it.

I did some brake (break) work on a 3/4 ton truck from New Jersey one time. That was it. Never again. The next vehicle that came in like that, I estimated everything I figured I'd break (brake), which was everything, and doubled the hours I expected it would take. Easy-Peasy.

Dang I should've done something special for my 10-year Stravaversary a couple months ago.

Check out my activity on Strava: https://strava.app.link/1JJl3lVdclb

oooh, they even specified Hazel Dell, WA!
