    ...but things have been incredibly busy Monday-Friday, so i've been tied up... Once i've finished Embrittlement, i'll start on my story of driving Bruce's TR, then switching it for Gus' 328 GTS... It was an awesome weekend...!

    Thank you Bruce, Andrea, Gus & Josie... i had a great time...! :)

    I must be one hell of a mean SOB. If anyone asks me about driving or riding in my car i say "do what i had to do to get a ride/drive...go buy one yourself"

    I have been told it's not a nice attitude. :)

    More reading materials to look forward to.
    Driving F's 8 & 12 cylinders back to back must be wonderful. Which one would you pick if you can only have on?

    Well, it wasn't a Ferrari but just as cool, IMO, but I got to operate a Bobcat this weekend. My house is being landscaped and when I was inspecting the work, I saw them getting the Bobcat out. I remarked that I always wanted to drive one of those and project manager was like, "really? Want to drive this one?" So I got to scoop up some dirt and drive it down the street and around the corner and dump the dirt into a dump truck. While you could read that in 10 seconds it took me about 20 minutes to do it. It's not that easy. Anyways, it was an experience I will never forget. Thanks Touchstone Landscaping!

    Ryan, that's pretty cool... What's top speed in those things...? All those levers and buttons make me dizzy...

    No kidding. The way it works is that each lever controls 4 functions (one in each direction). It takes some serous coordination. I think that I may have maxxed out at about 8 mph but the guys who really know how to use them go faster. At any rate, it was awesome.

    8 mph...? Wow, you're a pro... i watch people jump into those things in the movies and i imagine me trying to do it; i don't think i could get the damn thing started, much less figure out how to make it go... Cool stuff... You should've taken pictures...
