I bought some Sriracha Sauerkraut to put on top of some spicy Bratwurst.
Well, how was it!?
And on the gas it produced?

I ate at Whattaburger today. I ordered a #2 meal.






Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to attend to a #2.

I am reading older "political" posts from CPS.

Some interesting finds in these pages so far.

Yep.

I quickly regretted reading and wanted to stab my own eyes out.
I vow not to read political stuff here again, God help me.

I put my wife behind the wheel of the bug last night. She has never driven something with three pedals before.
After some stops, starts and shifting between 1st and 2nd in the soccer field parking lots I figured she was ready for the open road.
We were nearly killed when she pulled out onto 73 and shifted from 1st to 4th and then went into a panic trying to find 2nd. Once we turned onto the roads around the lake she did much better.

My sister had a red bug. It blew up and the fire department was there before anyone called because they heard the explosion. This was in 1995. All the lights were melted.

I just got an extraordinary email from one of my former students and advisees, Jesse, who has been working since graduation as a mountaineering guide in the North Cascades and Patagonia.

Jesse came to the college as a real problem for the registrar. All of the college credits that had been completed before attending were from graduate school. In Palestine! They didn’t know what to do with them.

Graduated from Fort Lewis with a 4.00 as Student Marshall, in three years. First in the class.

And with the “spare time” while climbing and guiding completed an MFA in creative non-fiction, finished a book about hiking the entire Continental Divide Trail as a teen.

The big news in the email is that Jesse has been selected to join an international team of scientists working on Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica as mountaineering support.

I expect a book will come from her experience in Antarctica.
Yes, her experience!

I love my kids!

Wait.

You mean to tell me not all young people are snowflakes looking for safe spaces to avoid triggers?

Mind. Blown.

(Of course I know not all young people are snowflakes looking for safe spaces to avoid triggers. I have three myself. I met a few more last weekend at the Taos Pueblo. Now that university is starting back up, I attend church with a couple dozen of them. I think we'll be just fine.)

Bugs have a bad rap for catching fire. Many have fallen prey to amateur wire wizards armed with black tape and dollar store electrical connector kits. This paired with the debris that tends to build up over 50 years makes for a rolling tinderbox.
Part of my restoration was replacing the rats nest of wiring from the dash back and inspecting every inch of wiring from the dash forward. There was lots of stuff that needed fixed. After seeing under the back seat, I paused to thank God for getting we home safe the day I bought it.
The engine cases have also been known to blow out because of the mechanical fuel pump seals failing and gas leaking into the case. That problem was just beginning on mine.
There's a reason many bug driver's keep a fire bottle onboard.

It is delicious. And concerning the gas, treat the container of Sauerkraut like you would Kimchi and open over the sink.

Just finished 14 days of normal work in 9 days in order to take time off the rest of the week and weekend. Family decided at Father's day it was time for my bucket list trip to the Bristol night race.
I have been to Talladega and Daytona so this will pretty much finish off the tracks I want to visit except maybe for Martinsville.
