@winterlegacy A big shame, but not surprised. We actually stopped having it with a manual in the current Soul generation when that generation debuted, so it actually stuck around with you guys in the States longer than it did here... 😞
We hit 78 today in the San Juans, but we have a concrete pad as our floor and live in the sea breeze coming off the water so our house never really gets above 76 and cools down to 60s during the night. That being sad the biking dirt is starting to get dusty.
June 21, 1961 – The first flight of the Aviation Traders Carvair, an aircraft developed from the Douglas DC-4 by entrepreneur Freddie Laker to allow travelers to take their cars with them on holiday. The DC-4 was modified by placing the flight deck in a raised section above the main fuselage to provide room for five cars and 22 passengers, or three cars and 50 passengers. The flexible design of the Carvair meant that the configuration could be changed on the ground between flights in as little as 40 minutes. A total of 21 DC-4s were converted and flown by various airlines in Europe, and one remains in service, based in Denton, Texas, which set a world record in 2005 when it carried 80 skydivers aloft.
And yeah, shit like that makes me hesitate to drive the hour or so to Fredericksburg to look at one that seems even nicer (except for the color: silver. Ugh). Man, if I drove three hours and dealt with that bullshit I'd lose my mind.
@beefchips German was an own goal away from a draw with France. But they were two own goals away from a draw with Portugal also. I do think their defense is good and they have had the edge in posession in both matches also.
@hfv You were lucky if security was fast at Orlando. It's been a decade since I was last in that airport. I remember the day well, July 8 2011. I had meetings that week in Melbourne Florida. The meetings ended on the afternoon of the 8th and I had to drive to Orlando to catch my flight home. I-95 was at a dead stop heading north, and the traffic map showed the backup going a long way. I headed inland on back roads to get to Orlando.
I got to the airport with little time to spare. I got to the right terminal and had a few minutes to grab food for the flight. As soon as I picked up my food, I noticed people gathering at a window. I went over, and 60 seconds later, we saw the bright light and white plume as Atlantis made the last shuttle flight ever. I had been so wrapped up in meetings that I didn't know when the flight was scheduled. At least I found out why the highway was backed up.
