Hank Watson's Garage Hour - Cars, Trucks, Beers & Guns

...Because there's still squads of peoplelike objects shambling the streets who think Memorial Day is National Uncover the Pool Day or Barbecue Day, the Gearhead Consultancy is here to unconfuse you about this solemn day. From rules for your flag to the right time for the moment of silence (yuuuuuup), we're here to help with how y'all are going to honor those who signed on the dotted line but never came back, and why the price they paid allows you to spend the weekend Tooting on Myface.

...And because you might like some relief from all that heaviness: there's Faith No More, Tomahawk, hounds with bees in their mouths , why "2001: Space Odyssey" makes us think too much, and making hay with the hundred-dollar commuter (don't overown it).

Go get lost - in the mountains, on some trails, in the canyons, in the woods, in some history. The Garage Hour goons (with 'froading fool Fred and his Walkin' Dude) are here to help with a few thoughts about being equipped for on-trail out-thereism, with ideas on straps to use (and to avoid), where you can get heavy-duty gear for a light-wallet price, and some other need-tos for your rig so the next gotta-go doesn't turn into a never-got-there. Specifics include air, hi and bottle-jacks, "Insomnia" in Alaska (with Pacino and Williams), and a junkyard dog that might be part Velcro.

While we're at it, there's rock (Kyuss), hillclimbing (PPIHC's 100th), sub-$G commuter wonderment, truck guns, and the dumb stuff people do in the woods (that a guy with a truck usually cleans up).

Here's something: The Man is after robot cars (but not for a reason that would fix the problem), rich guys are making the twits at Twatter crazier (because geek trumps nerd), Russian tanks are thwarted by Russian mud (how ironic), Chinese-made cameras are full of software and hardware back-doors (duhh), and how about that fool who idles 15 minutes waiting to park (in front of a hiking trail).  Meanwhile, does cognitive dissonance cause cancer?  ...Because it causes a lot of other sheddy stuff, like bureaucratic dehydration (No desal for you!).

Smetal: Slayer, Sleep, Slot, Snail, Solarized, Soundgarden, Stabbing Westward, Steril, Stick, Sugar Ray and 16-Volt.

TIme to push it down and lean back - it's a one-day sprint from here to there with Hostus Maximus Justin Fort. From rating the troopers in Illinois against the meter maids in the San Diego sector (so much copulence) and talking your way out of tickets, to good behavior in the car and road-trip expectations, we've got your pricey gas right here. Just don't ask for a Chevy Equinox - those big gals tried to drive it into the ditch on the 80 (so much better than the 88).

There's more: the difference between dashboard data and dial-up distractions (it's all bad), where have all the audio jacks gone (?), and being saved by the rear-view (got to live in your mirrors when you're piling on the MPHs).

Holy freakin' sequel, Batman - the Garage Hour goons gathered up the Chi-town hustlers for another armpit-adjacent gearhead free-for-all, and spicy meatballs happened. What's it? Cutting cars in half in auto shop, why electric Jeeps still aren't going to four-wheel (but the Gladiator is semi-driveable), interior colors (Whorehouse Red, anyone?), buying neighbors' forgotten treasures, and a dynamite analysis of where the used-car market is, where it's going, and what cars we're watching to make the math.

But wait: Trinity's Kolsch, Bell's IPA, and Toppling's Pseudo Sue, pit bulls and their tails, mall-crawling versus flexing Starbucks (Jeepers), and wading the Dupage River.
