    The Trans America Trail in a 2019 Ford Ranger

    The Trans America Trail in a 2019 Ford Ranger

    By the way? If Tim McGraw and Michael Keaton had a baby, the baby would look like you. Great story-telling - and i'm glad you told the story with video to augment the photos and writing - I think the photos and writing are probably the best - but adding a little video is a nice addition.

    An adventure in northwest Montana in late summer

    best part is, by the time i get back to the states I'll be pretty close to 50. The other aspect I was too skeerd to mention: Its nice thinking at 50 years old life still is going on. :D

    Colorado - full locking dif vs. auto locking dif

    Here's a vote for letting the driver decide when to have things happen. Auto-dimming mirrors (which have never worked as well as simply flipping a little tab on the mirror), auto headlights, auto wipers, auto locks, auto-everything. Instead of not-having-to-think about it, youd likely become...

    mods you wouldnt do again ...

    Cool air. Engineers are tasked to make car engines run well, make power, efficient, and quiet. All within the constraints of laws and available space.
