Gotta push through bit brotha! I was blessed with an overcast day yesterday and a nice breeze today. Only hurdle I've had is the wife's brief honey do list and nagging I'm in her parking spot.
Seems like every time I turn around I have 6 things needing doin' and all important.
We'll make it!

Yeah. Starting to sweat here too. Trying to finish things up. Wife wants AC. I think it's a luxury. Be lucky to get everything else done!

I used to think AC was a luxury. It has been in the upper 90s and hit 102 on Tuesday in Cortez. I am driving my GW w/o AC. That just plain sucks between noon and 5-6pm. It was nice last night because I was at work until 9:30 and the windows were all down for the ride home.
