    Downsizing vehicle stable...

    I have shared with a few friends of the new path I’m on, moving to the coast, downsizing from my compound to a postage stamp of a lot near the beach. Along with property downsizing, I purged before leaving all that space, continuing to do so down here finding my new space quite snug with all my...

    Observations at GAA classic car auction...

    Killing time in G-boro, what better place to see such a wide variety of cars from model A to ‘17 McLaren. Had to share of note the FJ40 and LX470 up for auction. The FJ40 did not hit the reserve at $29k, looked very nicely built and professionally painted. The LX is well built with bolt on...

    Finally, I have a shop...

    Since my move to NC some 18 yrs ago, I’ve been stuck living in the land of yuppies and soccer moms, otherwise knows as the Containment Area for Relocated Yankees...Cary. HOA’s, small garages, kids and no room to do what I wish I could do, during the “negotiations” of our downsizing, one of my...

    School me on UTV/SxS, ready to pull the trigger on one...

    Before I do, please educate me on them. I’ve done my best to learn off of Google University, have confidence in my research but...nothing like first hand experience. Now that I’m fully retired, living on my little piece of dirt, I need a utility vehicle for my property. Very jealous of Stan’s...

    RDU fishing guide?

    Weird request...every Christmas, I enjoy hosting my in-laws where I watch my father in-law go through fishing withdrawals. Since he has retired to the FL gulf coast, he doesn't go a day without fishing. He fishes my neighborhood pond, Bond Lake in Cary (where he found a 5+lb large mouth)...

    A Cautionary Tale...

    I'm sharing this story with my friends and others in our club who enjoy being outside, seeing landscapes, horizons, sunrises and sunsets unfiltered by anything, doesn't matter what one is doing as long as it is in the great outdoors...

    Expedition Trailer for sale...

    I'm offering my Expedition Trailer for sale to my ONSC family first, if no takers, I will offer it to the WWW. Why? As much as I love traveling in this mode, my lovely spouse prefers more "comfortable" accommodations. She said that if she wants me to have her along, we need to change things...

    And, so it begins, head gasket for our FZJ80...

    In a previous post, I'm getting the P401 fault, ordered new parts from Onur, realized that I was over half-way to taking the head off with the intake off, I've decided to replace the head gasket before I'm forced to. The FZJ80 has 165k on it, had 2 overheating "events", one during sustained...

    Tell me if I'm crazy...

    I mentioned in the FZJ80 exhaust modification thread that mine threw a code but I didn't think it was due to the single cat, and it wasn't. Donald (of Henry's) fixed that with fixing the bad weld around the after cat O2 sensor, I stopped by Autozone and found that I have a P401 code. So, I...

    A little relief for working in the garage...

    I saw a link on Facebook where someone made something similar for the house, I needed something for the garage so I can get a little relief during the summer. I've got decent propane heater for the winter but summer's kill my pasty-pale @ss. So, I took my big garage fan, a bit of copper tubing...

    Our Benz needs new hands...

    Our beloved Benz (that I bought from Alex) was involved in a fender bender (really, hood bender) yesterday and it would be best served in another's hands. The drivetrain is solid (298k), interior is very good (no tears or wear), everything works (rear passenger window has a broken "slide"...

    Amateur Radio RARSFest this weekend...

    Thought I'd pass on the event in case anyone needs info or is planning on going. Its good opportunity to take the exam, maybe find a deal on a radio and network with the locals. In my opinion, this is good path for ONSC to offer local help during emergency situations where our vehicles...
