watched Marcus King Band rock out in Grand Rapids MI


drove to Cleveland OH to visit R&RHOF

currently laying on the couch in our AirBnB which the host made quite clear "is NOT in East Cleveland." Its within shooting distance of East Cleveland though. I would rather have driven home tonight.

I'm making an effort to be social, despite my reluctance. So today I'm helping friends flip a house and cooking, and tomorrow night I'm going to a dance where I'm hoping to meet this girl I've heard about. That last sentence terrifies me.

No need for the gym when you have 3 cords of oak logs to cut up and split (by hand). Got through about 1/4 cord this afternoon and I am taking a brake.  Kind of a mix of cut some with the chain saw in to 12 inch logs.  Then move 3-4 logs in to position and split and put the split pieces in to the cart. Rinse and repeat u till the cart is full then take the cart over to the wood pile and stack for drying.  Great excersize!!!


what I have left by the house. This was one oak tree and a small beach. I have 2x this at the other end of the property where two other oaks came down

Autocross on the kart track at the speedway. There's a track sprint, but the civic is on a lift, and the Miata doesn't have a roll bar. 


edit: oh, and storm preparation.

Finishing up a great Sunday. Son Jason and wife Andrea and grand kids were over for dinner tonight. Great evening. And Charlie the beagle. Now they're gone and we're relaxing with leftover wine and listening to the Paul Cardall channel on Pandora. Ahhh!

It was work on the 9-3 vert weekend:

  • Replaced the coolant tank, thermostat and coolant temp sensor.
  • Pulled the rearview mirrors and cleaned/repainted the aluminum that had started to oxidize.
  • Replaced the vanity mirrors in both sun visors, both doors had broken off.
  • Swapped the manual inside rearview mirror for and automatic one with Homelink.
  • Replaced the antenna amp so the radio works again.

The better half is going to be flying to Phoenix Thursday morning and back on Monday morning for a family funeral. So I'm boarding the dogs to get some peace and quiet (and give my severe pet allergies a break). 

So I think I'm going to try to tackle installing the OEM Audio+ front speaker upgrade on the BRZ. Nothing I haven't done before on multiple vehicles, but I feel weird pulling the door cards off a car with a 115 miles. The dash speakers are just popping a grill and a few bolts to replace the two on each side.

Did another autocross, got about a top-quarter finish in raw time which is pretty good for a big course and a big field of competitors, missed 4th by 1 cone...oil cooler fitment is definitely improved but there's still 1 minor issue to fix. Gorilla Tape is great for both protecting and detecting things rubbing against each other.

Well the weather is pure E36 M3 thanks to Ian so I'm going to hang out inside with my dog and be a lazy piece of crap.  I think I'll try and finish a book, but other than that it'll probably be light chores, a few workouts, and video games.

I'm going to take the wheels off my Corvette, one at a time, and clean, polish, and repaint the black trim on them. I consider it a stopgap measure to make do with what I have until I can get some ZR1 wheels.

Now that Ian is passed, I'm gonna chop up some limbs, and probably wash the Miata.  Might hit up a junkyard if they still have the Miata in stock

Tires on the Bentley and it has developed a fuel leak I need to track down.

Get the naskart a little more done. Tertiary Seat mounts, replacement trams crossmember, kick panel close outs. 

That list is probably too long to actually accomplish. 

I also need to get some miles on the minivan. See if the third axle is correct.
