And dear god... This video is fvcking insane. I've never seen a car jump so gracefully.

That is absolutely spectacular how smoothly he drove through all of that! It was obvious the driver knew the course but holy crap that was fast and clean!

That was mine. 3 people and it wasn't quite finished by the end of the day. We did have some surprises like needing to rent a slide hammer, though.

God love 'em. Brave, idiotic fools that they are.
The thing about this proposed law is that it only allows them to legally consume 2-3 alcoholic beverages before driving, which on average will bring a male's BAC up to about .04%, which is half the legal limit in most US states.

My compression test for this weekend just got canceled. I just found out I have to help my brother and sister-in-law move. Not fun.

I moved from DC to MA on New Year's Day 2012. Packed the truck, drive, sleep for 5 hours, unpacked.
Ohh forgot to mention on the 31st I flew in from Germany.
Then 3 months later, bought a house a moved AGAIN... I'm done moving for at least 3 years.

Moving, then moving again like that is awful. When we finished building this house I told my wife at least 5 years. And that I would hire someone next time. Whatever it is, it's worth it. Only thing worse to me is painting.

When I traded my truck in I thought I was done with it. I bought an SUV and a utility trailer, thinking they can borrow the damn trailer but I'm not helping. Now it appears no one ever even buys a vehicle (in this case a Toyota Highlander) with a trailer hitch. So here we go again, can't duck it since its family.

Picking up a set of custom SRD Recaro's Sunday night. Guy sent me pics of the stickers and there's keiper recaro stamping all over it. Only odd part is they don't have the belt guides in the headrest area. All the stamping on them though refers to them as a Custom SRD I have been researching for an hour or so and have yet to find another without. Making me nervous might call Recaro tomorrow with the serial number and get it checked.

guys!

I'm back. Grand Cayman was great, even without the butter or the babyface . Cliffs: Good weather, snorkeled bunches, got my SCUBA refresher, read 2 good books, and slept loads. Pics to follow tomorrow.

Better news: I picked up my M3 tonight. How I missed the CookieMobile!

Best news: Was found not to be at fault for the accident

Time for bed.

Thanks guys...Planning my next trip. Likely a week in Culebra, Puerto Rico late next month. Have much vacation time and stress to burn off.

Undeveloped beaches, loads of unmotorized water activities (snorkeling, kayaking, HobieCating), lots of local color and virtually no tourism development. My kinda place!

Culebra is awesome, but Vieques is my favorite. Bigger town. More access to cheap rum.

Welcome back!
