How I did it: You know that this-person-is-totally-trying-to-screw-me feeling? That's what happened when I took my 2002 Suzuki DRZ 400E to the dealer with the cracked crankcase. It's funny because the parts and sales department has always been so good to me: honest, fair pricing, helpful. I must have bumped into a rat in the service department - they nicely identified the issue and correctly pointed out that the crankcase couldn't be welded in this cas… Read how I did it…
How I did it: I've been having some patch hair growth on my head -- not full hair growth, but chunks that aren't fully realized. I also have big missing patches between the parts with partial hair. I decided to grow it out to see what would happen. Today I stopped the experiment because it was looking not-so-pretty. Read how I did it…
How I did it: I just finished putting together a recording studio in my basement fully equipped to record a live drum set.

I’m testing this out with Buster and it seems pretty hot.

Specifically, a VW Eurovan with a pop top, the theory being that I prefer car camping over tent camping. Just enough of the creature comforts to make it more fun than adventuresome. I’m working on buying a 2003 with low miles. If so, I’ll either love it or it’ll be that stupid thing I bought compulsively in order to fulfill an invented need. Pretty much the modern condition. Sometimes I feel that way when I order french fries. I didn’t really need (or want) french fries … I just ordered them because they were there on the menu. But once in a while french fries are simply wonderful.
Okay, so back to camping. I want to go camping this summer and sleep in a well-appointed van. I think that would be awesome.
