Tread Life

Last week I noticed that I've managed to keep a set of tires on my motorcycle for over a year. Previously I've been going through at least 2 sets of tires per year. I guess life's slowing down - not always a bad thing.

Wiring Diagrams

When I bough my jeep it didn't have a stereo or rear speakers and after 8 months I finally broke down and bough them. Now on the to tricky part. Apparently the last owners' brother messed up the wiring and so I can't get the stereo to work, it's starting to look like I might have to completely rewire the jeeps audio. ugh.

But I have no complaints, my jeep is a gift from God and a huge blessing on a rainy day like today.

I rode my motorcycle up to San Luis Obispo today to pick up a roof rack for my Jeep Cherokee. Last nights rain made it a nice morning for a ride with clouds still hanging heavy over the road.

piece by piece she's coming together.

Mexico


I miss Mexico. I miss the food, the landscape, the sore body after a long day of riding; I miss the thrill of having my motorcycle packed down and on the road.

Happy Valentine's Day Mexico, I will always cherish our memories.

When you work this many jobs chances are you don't get any days off...
