A tool run, some light off-roading to the foothills, and a phone drop!

 This morning's task was to replace the gear oil in Mariko's Transfer Case with new 80W90 oil.  Why?  I'd found the oil in the transfer case contaminated with water last month.  I had changed it out then, and this change was to ensure no water remained.I found I was missing the 24mm socket I'd used in my garage.  So before I could do the swap, I drove into T or C and the Autozone Auto Parts store there.  Before I got to the store though, I stopped Mariko at nearby buildings to take pictures of t...

Boondocking near New River, AZ

 Spent three days at my FIL's place in Sun City, working on the paperwork related to Fiona's insurance claim, the camera insurance claim and just trying to get my mind straight on this event.Spent some time as well trying to clean up the tools I managed to recover from among the ashes in Fiona's trunk where I carried the tool cases.  Most likely will end up buying new versions of most of them I think.As if to memorialize Fiona, the sunsets for visible from Sun City were pretty good:Saturday, Nov...

Trump’s tariffs could knock Tesla’s Autopilot off course

The White House has refused to exempt the “brain” of Tesla’s Autopilot technology from punitive import tariffs, a decision that could endanger the company’s self-driving ambitions, TechCrunch has learned. At a special “autonomy day” event last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled advanced Autopilot 3.0 hardware, including a new custom chip intended to enable full self-driving (FSD) operation for all of its new vehicles. This hardware is now standard in all new Model 3, S and X vehicles. Custom...

The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 59: Hanging with the Machidas

Spent the day hanging out with RichardM and Bridget at the campsite near Quartzsite, AZ.The weather was warm and not windy at all which made it quite enjoyable to sit in the sun and chat about whatever was on our mind.  It would have been a perfect setting, but the large number of RVs surrounding us tended to ruin things a little bit.  Here's three views from the top of my URRV: We did take RichardM's truck into town to check out e-bikes for Bridget but nothing suitable was found.  One plac...

Penrose Boondocking, Sunday: Temple Canyon Park and a ride to Silver Cliff, CO

Sunday.Not a bad sunrise this morning, my last full day of camping here in the Penrose Commons BLM area. Soon after breakfast cleanup, I headed on out to check out the camping sites at the Temple Canyon Park located SW of Cañon City on CR3.  The road was quite doable by an RV, in spite of some tight turns as one nears the park.  However, the road turns to shit inside the park!You go through BLM land on the way to the park, and I saw a couple of sites with campers in them.  I got 2 bars LTE vi...

ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway

After the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio, five drivers had solid chances for the 2018 championship: four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champions Scott Dixon leading in points with Alexander Rossi, Josef Newgarden, Will Power, and Ryan Hunter-Reay in chase. Before the tenth lap of the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono, a shocking shunt on Turn 2 sent rookie Robert Wickens flying into the fence with only the car’s tub landing back on the track, bringing out the red flag and ending the race for the five drivers i...

Checking out WMAs in Nebraska

WMA: Wildlife Management Area.So, long day driving the URRV today.  The plan had been for a short day of driving and boondocking at the Twin Lakes WMA near the town of Bassett, NE. However, once I got within 5 miles of it, the road became loose sandy dirt, not great for a RV as you might imagine.  Heck, I would have had reservations on some of the spots about using the Ural!  Still, I was committed once I started down this road as there was no way to turn the URRV and trailer around, not without...

Car with Personality: Are we ready for this?

I admit…I have always named my cars and talked to them too. Not because I am a lonely and sad person but because I want to imbue good feelings in my space—talking to my car seems to do that for me. Every car should have a bit of personality that makes it ours. How can something so intimate and personal that we use every day not? Of course, a car ultimately is a tool that gets us from one place to another. Up until now, talking to a car has been one sided but in the near future that could change....

UTB: Factory Butte SRMA while doing a Recce

After an unusual productive day at work, I left a bit early to run down towards Hanksville, UT to gas up, get some more groceries and do a little recon of possible boondocking sites to the west of Hanksville along UT24.  We did have a pretty good sunrise Uma, the URRV, was out of position for the sunrise,  but her window captured it just fine. Once I got to Hankville, I filled up and then continued west towards the last location I'd stayed near when I towed Scarlett with Martha's Bim...
