Why would you fly, it's only a 2500 mile round trip!

Drove the 40 hour round trip to the FL panhandle and did some lounging last week. Saw some sand, a big boat, some blue planes and a cave.

Never been to Arkansas, Alabama, or Mississippi so knocked those off the list.

What ship is that?

USS Alabama, docked in Mobile like 3 minutes off I10. There is a WW2 sub and a bunch of WW2-Vietnam era aircraft there too.

I thought so. I was there last summer. Here's the Roadmaster in the parking lot....

Did you manage to make it to the Stennis space center just off the interstate? Makes a nice rest stop and never seen much of any crowd there

No, didn't make it that far west/south. Mobile is as west/south as I got.

If I make it down there again I'll try to remember to check it out.

It has to be the most convenient place I ever visited. IIRC you can see the entrance from the off ramps. They have periodic tours where they drive you around the facility, but even without that there's plenty of exhibits and a simulator that's fun whether you're a kid or adult. Just never understood why so few people make the stop - although that's great for visiting.

Took the front clip off the cobalt and half the front suspension just got the driver's side left and then it's time to remove the engine cradle and see what's needed of my parts car that's not damaged and switch swap change what I can and replace the pieces that wear out with new

Took a half day to get the ol' Troy Bilt ready to do some mowing by changing oil & filter, charged up the battery. Get buzzing around the yard just to eat the belt, see it needs a new belt keeper, maybe deck spindles. Was going to beat up the old blades just incase I missed any thingin the yard but will be doing those when I get everything needed. One good point I got the front yard done.

Got belt at Lowe's for the ol' tractor & got the deck back on in less than an hour to include the 25 min round trip (Fa-Q Amazon cause they couldn't help me pull that kind of timing off.) Before that run I got the blades swapped out, saw the spindles are good. Next on the to do list is drive belts.
