Fun fact: That lake bed is the same lake bed you see in the S1E1 intro ("Burning Van") of The Grand Tour. If you look REALLY closely at that footage, you'll see my stupid ass in the crowd cheering for good ol' Jeremy I'll-punch-you-in-the-face-if-you-don't-find-me-a-steak-in-the-next-5-minutes Clarkson and co.


Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

That was Spiff's breakfast - The Lumberjack's chilaquiles are industrial-strength hangover busters.

Nah, Spiff is a plain old non-discriminating mean bastard that is always looking for the opportunity to take out a toe, foot, or wandering small animal.

I have one last weekend of tomfoolery planned. I swear he will be flying back home early next week.

For some stupid reason I trust you.

Somehow the wife hasn't noticed yet (technically it's hers and I appropriated it) that it is wandering the wild west. The kid has brought it up a few times, but she still hasn't picked up on it. Probably best if it does make it's way home before she gets wise...
