    Friends, Please be careful out there.
    The pandemic is NOT over.
    Everyday I see People who are fully vaccinated testing positive for Covid.
    Most are not getting very sick but a few are requiring supportive therapy (not necessarily hospitalization).
    So please:
    1. Get the booster dose 5-8 months after your 2nd dose.
    2. Wear your N95 mask everywhere. Do not rely on cloth masks.
    3. Be cautious.

    Life Simplification Continues...........
    On a 'whim' (we have been thinking about it somewhat) I punched in the VIN of my car at Vroom and at Carmax.
    For me it was an easy decision as the offer was much higher than I expected. For Mrs Simba it was a much tougher decision.
    I guess it is a good time to be a Seller of used cars.
    The H2 is gone.

    The other older H2 was also sold to Carmax about 2 yes ago.
    We are thinking of selling off a Buick Rendezvous depending on the offer we get.

    I wish that was true.

    Just making room for a near future purchase.
    We have been looking at a Ford Transit for a while. It makes no sense to buy a used vehicle in the current market and also makes no sense to buy a new Transit that will just sit for most of the year. Now, when I am close to retirement.........

    I like how your thinkin’! Will K let me take you on a couple month ride when that happens?

    The used market is so out of whack right now that I know a couple guys traded in their pickups and got thousands more than they paid for them originally.

    Hey Imu, just a heads up, knowing that you are a motorcycle collector of sorts - I'm going to be putting my trials bike up for sale shortly. If you or any of our cohort have any interest in it let me know. The price will on the easy side of two grand.

    Now I know that Robert (@ScotsFire ) just congratulated you on thinning your herd but I venture that that's just a temporary condition. Oui?

    Your bike will sell quickly but not for me.
    Did you get your RE Himalayan?

    Okay but if you change your mind on the way down to St George I'm right off I-80.

    Himalayan? On hold. We buried the electrical feed to the house and that project sucked up a significant amount of discretionary funds. Plus I've sort of been smitten with the idea of getting a big pair of astronomical binoculars and a fancy mount for some dark sky viewing. So it looks like the Jeep and the Beta for the time being.

    And this is why I love Michigan.

    Got this big ass DJI drone.
    Its a Phantom 3 Pro.
    The Pelican case fills the entire Prius trunk and no way it comes on a bike.
    It will be good for local flights.

    I lost count of how many drones you have.

    How many is too many?

    Is it like bikes???

    ......every single one of them has a certain purpose.

    After a recent crash of my main drone and the fact that DJI wanted $400 to fix it I decided to sell it. I took the cash from that sell and bought the drone pictured above.

    Lately been thinking about buying a new bike.......
