Was just watching the latest Sailing Uma on YT. They're meandering up the west coast of Norway. They had a few seconds of the Aurora, too and it was beautiful. I'd like to see it for real before I die.
@tripper Super fun, really wish I had a few more days there but two was enough to hit every site pretty much. It's pretty tiny-one small town and the rest is very empty. Hotels and restaurants are pretty modest (but cheap!) and there's like two tiny grocery stores haha, but the seafood is very fresh and really yummy as a result. There's a ton of cool history albeit pretty dark, and the engineering that went into building the Moai is absolutely wild. And the whole place is absolutely beautiful. Think Hawaii if all of the geography was compressed into like 15x10 miles, plus the amazing statues...
@highlander Been warm and rainy here. Still some snow on the trails, but I'm not optimistic about how long it will last
Can hope that Thursday's rain actually falls as snow in the mountains...
@way2blu I seriously love how that car turned out with those tires and wheels. I take it you'll swap over the other wheels for autocross?
But yes, summers in the mountains here seems like a genuinely terrible idea. Full props for actually driving a rare-ish sports car in the snow, but don't be the one to block the roads lol. Conditions change fast enough I wouldn't even say 3-seasons are a good idea, but they're doable at least (but really get something severe snow rated like an allweather or AT if you don't run snow tires).
And thanks! Really happy with the photos-all phone camera too, for a change.
My area of Nova Scotia had a lot of German settlers, so I live 5 minutes from Lunenburg, and I know of an East and West Berlin, and a New Germany in terms of place names nearby 😛
What's the point of just re-using German names! Especially Berlin haha. I guess it wasn't a big deal back before WW2 when they named it.
Aus has a whole state called New South Wales. We don't have a Wales, and the state isn't South of it. It's just...the NEW South Wales.
Yet when I ask Skoda online, I'm directed to Skoda U.K., who say they don't know. Skoda in Czechia say it's up to Skoda U.K. who order what they want as Skoda U.K. are the distributors of Skodas in the U.K. and Skoda Czechia has no influence what cars are sold here. But I can order one from Czechia, etc...
I know I'm going for a Skoda Superb AGAIN next year but would of liked the Superb Scout as an option.
I'm not going petrol or all electric but petrol hybrid.
