    Yeah I was talking to one of the concierge guys at the hotel. He was asking about Canada and starting talking about the area here. It’s pretty crazy. Lots of medical places I guess but nothing in rec.

    It takes a long time for a store to get approved. Lots of people wanted it legalized, but lots of those same people don't want the stores in their neighborhoods and they're fighting against it.

    I decided I had to be somewhat practical so I traded the Jeep in on a new Ecoboost F-150

    Won't happen this year, but I think the novelty has wore off after 6-7 years of Wrangler ownership. Likely get a used low mileage 2019 Volvo V60 wagon next year.

    The SRT was awesome, but I need a truck for the rentals, and it will be better on fuel.

    Do you own a vehicle that reliably runs yet?

    I've had a few XPS desktops over the years and they've all lasted me a long time.

    My latest purchase was an insanely overpriced set of ramps for my car. They will sure beat the hell out of driving on wood blocks and jacking up the car when I want to do something to it though.

    It's this most night and day difference of any mod I've done to a car, It rides like a completely different car, it's insanely better

    If I was buying $2K ramps to drive my car on, I'd want you to lay me under the wheel and back it off the ramps
