Nissan GT-R

0-60mph in 3.4 seconds, hitting 100mph in 8.5 leaving Porsche 911 turbos and Corvette Z06s behind. I had a chance to drive another amazing car over the holiday break. In a past post I mention driving a BMW M6 and a Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series. I love driving these cars.

I've often dream of traveling with a mini-camper; one that encompasses the unified sensibility of minimalism and homey comfort. Except I want to take my legs, thus I may need to change the trailer dimensions.

Vintage Bobcat Snow Blower and Google Toy

My old snow blower, a freebie from Dad, has a cool design. I like the camelesque humped lines. It's cool that it's a Bobcat.
While doing some research on it, I found a blog dedicated to old snow blowers. (Another reason for snowmen to smile.) This blog had a link to Google Patents.
Simply typing in the patent number gave me heaps of drawings and information from the original patent application.
Patent number: 2770894
Filing date: Jul 3, 1952
Issue date: Nov 1956
Great to learn about the Bobcat. Cool to have access to drawings of many of my patented gizmos around the house. May come in handy.

Holy Crap Its Cristmas!

Who's Up For Winter Camping?

I've been thinking a lot about going camping over the my holiday break from school. Any interest? I've ordered new skis and can likely hook someone else up with skis that'll work. Winter bike camping would be wicked too.

Ullr a Nordic God at ReEntry House

I love reading bike blogs and taking tangential runs via posted links. Now that it is ski season, I though I would try to find a vein of ski blogs for similar reading. I stumbled on Ullr, an arrow shooting Nordic God. I, at once, thought of the Anders(s)on brothers who are also arrow shooting Nordic skiers.

Clicking on a link, I found a local Ullr Ski group who sings at Re-entry House. It's a small web after all.

Interesting or post traumatic stress?

Monster Trucks!

I've taken Harris to the theater, the ballet and museums, but know the boy knows The Grave Digger.

Cutting a Tree

The family went down to Hampton tree farm to cut our X-mas tree today. Always fun until someone gets crushed by a tree.

Dec. 3rd Commute

Bob Dylan accompanied me on my commute this morning. All rolled smoothly through the light snow.
