    On September 17, 1787 — 234 years ago today — the delegates to the constitutional convention who had approved the final document signed it and sent it on its way toward ratification. In case you've failed to read the Constitution in the intervening years, today is a great day to do that...

    Pat Bagley is a Moron

    I mean, we already knew that; but this particular cartoon really annoyed me: From the mind of someone who knows nothing of the issues, lets turn ALL THE LANDS INTO THEME PARKS... FOR NATURE!

    Trip Report 2020: A Retrospective

    History will likely record 2020 as an annus horribilis for the world writ large. For me, though, it’s been an oddly good year. In the tradition of RME years gone by, I figured I’d offer up a photographic retrospective. While I got married on New Year’s Eve 2019, we didn’t leave the building...

    So the world is a flaming pile right now, so lets refocus ourselves on the important things in life; like whiskey (or whisky). I cut my teeth on Jack Daniels like all stupid college kids. But these days I'm more partial to rye's than bourbons. My go to is High West Rendezvous Rye, but that $65...

    Battery Operated Portable Air Compressors

    I have yet to mount my ARB CKMA12 compressor that I pulled out of the Trooper into the Patrol. This weekend's trip I aired my tires down knowing that someone on the trail would happily lend me their compressor or I'd find a service station before I hit the highway. @TEAM FRED had his DeWalt...

    I just read an article about firefighters on 9/11... damn. It seems like just yesterday that I was asleep in my dorm room at the U when the phone rang and my friend Scott just said, "They've attacked the Pentagon." I quite literally fell out of bed, turned on the TV just in time to watch the...

    Airbnb's Project Lighthouse

    I've used Airbnb a ton over the years. I can't say it really saved me a bunch of money vs. hotels, but it was a useful tool to get a decent place to stay usually a bit closer to where I wanted to be (the beach, a racetrack, etc.). This morning I got this e-mail: Now that just kinda freaks me...

    OBDII Scanner Recommendations

    Whenever I've had a car throw a CEL, I generally just "rent" a scanner from the local parts store, get the code, resolve the problem, go back to the parts store and clear the code. My wife's car has thrown a couple of codes recently, and my auto shop teacher friend lent me his very fancy scanner...
