The circle is complete

The circle is complete

When I was in bears ears I was trying to figure out what I could bring the girls. I wasn’t really keen on bringing them back more souvenir stuff and the girls were kind of into rocks and flowers lately, so I though “I’ll bring them rocks and flowers!”

Creative I know.

So I plucked some flowers from the lunch field above and some interesting rocks I found along the way. I know it’s not strictly...

Shouldn’t be watching Twilight Zone on my lunch breaks

I’ve been watching Twilight Zone on Netflix lately, I quite like most of these ol episodes. I think its a cool way to peer backwards into the real world as its represented, and the societal norms and worries of that generation to contrast with this one. i.e. what did people worry about then, what was the general mood. Media...

Things I can count on from Jalopnik/established motoring publications

Things I can count on from Jalopnik/established motoring publications

1. Treating the crossover trend like some kind of coma were all waiting to wake from, simultaneously as a sign of the end of times.

What, you think enthusiast 20-30 years ago were clamoring for more regular sedans and wagons? Regular hatchbacks?

“as soon as gas prices go back up its so long crossovers and hello miata’s!”

Get real. Crossovers ARE the regular cars. They have a small...

Sometimes I need reminds of just how tiny the XJ was

Sometimes I need reminds of just how tiny the XJ was

Im still blown away that they were able to cram 2 solid axles, a 4 liter Iron block I6 and a transfer case along with 5 seats in this thing. I guess the secret was not caring terribly if the occupants lived or died in a crash.

Say what now?

Say what now?

Looking for a garage vent fan local to me and this popped up on Home Depots website.

My guess is that they ordered this Honda replacement parts by mistake and are just trying to get rid of them.

Apple... you suck.

Apple... you suck.

i am working from home today because my Mac pro (trashcan) would keep cashing in me when working on a specific project. i suspects it’s due to the gpu defect I’ve had repaired twice and is starting to reappear.

while working at home on my Mac book pro the cpu load goes to 700% (just on chrome mind you) then the screen goes black, the fans go to full speed for a minute and then it shuts down...

My new favorite song, and one hell of a driving song.

That time Where-in I tried (and failed) to do trail repairs

That time Where-in I tried (and failed) to do trail repairs

I’ve been aching to find dirt lately. Its been far too long and I needed to feel that joy and freedom again. So with a few emails my friend, his girlfriend and I set a date for a quick splash around in the mud with our trucks.

Did we know where we would go? no. Did we have a destination? hell nay. Did we break stuff? yes.

My friend and his girlfriend, along with his rusty but trusty Xterra and...

A most excellent conundrum

A most excellent conundrum

First, this is amazing

Trials riding is the most impressive thing you can do on 2 wheels if you ask me. Maybe not the scariest, but the most impressive. The skateboard thing in particular blew my mind apart.

Second - the lesson here is that you are more important than anyone else, and that escaping your life = being a dick to people. They’re good natured, they’ll be fine. Obviously...

Electric car road trips suck

Electric car road trips suck

In other news, rain comes from clouds.

There’s a lot to say here and a lot you don’t.

Obviously charging an electric car on a long road trip is going to suck but this really drives it home.

Im not saying there aren’t going to be solutions in the future and Im not saying they aren’t problems worth solving.

Its nice for the rest of the world to understand why westerners are struggling...

Well...this is interesting.

Well...this is interesting.

“Hey Lexus owner. So...yeah...your paint might come off. Thats about all we know right now. We’ll let you know what to do about it.”

Interesting.  my paint looks great, so I guess its not an issue for me.

Its creepy and I hate it

Its creepy and I hate it

Yes, this is really happening.

I want to share something with you that I hate. Creepy soulless breakfast mascots.

Why you looking at me with your dead eyes? Why do you ALL have the exact same expression and ALWAYS no mater what you are doing?

It’s not just these three little psychos...they ALL do this. Copy and paste the same face on the character no matter what they are doing and how they...

Defender. But what does HHFP have to say about it?

Defender. But what does HHFP have to say about it?

The new defender is here. I want to start out first and foremost by saying that I’m not onboard with the JLR design boss ethos and his works so Im likely to say that it’s not very attractive and frankly could be very ugly. Which i did do just now.

Im also an avid Toyota Land Cruiser..ite..which may color my opinions but I’d like to think I can separate the two.

Things I like

1. It exists. Its a...
