Out My Window

Yesterday, I had the towing stuff installed on my Jeep and RV. Towing the Jeep back to my campsite was surprisingly effortless. Other than a little slower acceleration, you hardly know it is back there. This will work out well as I’m really enjoying the Jeep.

Out with the New. In with the Old.

Sold my NEW motorcycle yesterday after only 12 hours on Craigslist. Bought this OLD ’97 Jeep the same day. A beater: torn top, rusty undercarriage, almost 100k miles – but it’s fun to drive and feels right. I used to own a Jeep, same year even, but it was new and that takes all the fun out of owning a Jeep. I like this one better. Now I have to throw some more $$$$ into making her tow-worthy – but it’ll be worth it.

PS: Good luck Mr. Obama. It’s not about the economy, or health care, or taxes – these are all just natural and temporary cycles. Think about your old friends: I once decked my buddy Doug because of some girl whom I hardly remember, but what was far more important was our friendship. I helped him up, wished him well with her and we got back to drinking. I have no clue where she is now, but Doug’s still my best buddy.

What’s important in American politics is not the temporary issues, it is the way we get along with the rest of the world – with our friends.
