OT 17: License to Wax

Jesus Christ man, Best Western? :wtf: :scrooge: I have been there... a lot. I always had Bang Bus access but it wasn't exactly palatable to drive that around in my off time. I kept a guitar in the bus for a lot of the time so I had that, but mostly just reading, walking, running, and going to the l...

Blindsided current management with my offer and they want an opportunity to counter, but it would involve no change in job role and just throw money at the problem, and it still doesn’t address double digits of income I’ve lost out on from the change in job when I started. Came home, talked to wifey...

No interview needed. Old boss called me at lunch today and he basically said "You know what the job is, so when are you starting?" Money is solid, if at the lower end of the scale, but will be revisited every 3 months for the first year while I settle in and start taking on more responsibility. Star...

So service director at Toyota liked my plan to grow into the management job, despite it being poor timing based off their immediate needs. My old service manager was there in the interview, and is now director at a sister store. Both of them have apparently told ownership its worth investment in me....

I went with the smart trainer for the realistic road feel. I’ve had to have my KICKR Core warrantied out twice, but haven’t put any time on the second replacement other than make sure it works. Wahoo definitely had some qc issues. This one is also "smart" just with a roller instead of direct drive....

I picked up Diablo 3 The Eternal Collection for the Xbone over the weekend and fired it up for an hour last night. What’s better than smashing skulls in a dungeon crawler game? I’ve always been a fan of the Diablo series all the way back to duping all the things in Diablo 1. Started up a Crusader f...

Local Chevy dealer has a 2017 Z71 Diesel with 17k miles I can have for $31k and i really miss my truck.

I find the diesel to be a bit :flaccid: on the highway. Not much passing power, feels winded. The torque is fantastic, though. Won't have the normal 8-speed issues because they're all 6-speeds, but still aren't bulletproof. My truck really has been fantastic. Zero complaints other than trans tuning...

Good speed with lower effort is exactly when I think this might actually be fun... basically the same idea as going downhill. For now it's just a painful grind that will hopefully keep me from getting fatter. If you’re seeing a pattern of this becoming a painful grind, do something to mix it up. Ha...
