Pio, I can't imagine getting an Explorer over a 4Runner. Then again, I actually do drive off-road in mine so there is genuine need for the qualities that a 4Runner (and very few other SUV's) possess. If you don't have those needs, I'm sure the Explorer will do nicely. You could certainly argue that sample size (1) is an issue, but my 11 year old 4Runner has been the best vehicle I've ever owned. It's going to be genuinely difficult to let go of her, even if I'm just...
Bought my son his first real gun today. For my money the act of a father teaching his son to hunt is one of the oldest, and probably the most manly, activity in the history of the world. Seriously. (I know that the act of buying the gun really isn't manly, but dove season doesn't start until Sep 1. The gun in question is a single shot breakover .410)
Blue steel rolling insulated cooler for the back patio.
Speaking of, last night was our first in a new set of cotton percale sheets from Parachute. I read an article in the Wall Street Journal a few months back and decided to give these a try. 8 weeks later they just arrived from Italy and I'm very pleased. $200 for a queen set.
Except that it's covered in snow 5 months of the year. When it comes down to it, no self-respecting billionaire should have less than 2 major ranches. One in Texas and one in a cooler/higher locale.
And as I said before, we had one for 5 years in our previous home and loved every minute of it. Best money I ever spent (was about $2500 both the time before and this time around).
After a couple of years of living in a rent house as we worked on the design and construction of the new home, we finally moved in a couple of weeks back. Our builder is going to come in and do some better pictures once the punch list is knocked out, but here are a couple of pre-move in shots of the great room.
We were living in a rent house for the past 2 years until 2 weeks ago, after having spent the previous 5 years in a home we had built with a central vac. Needless to say, we put another system in the new house (which we spent the past 2 years designing and then building) and it's awesome. Only difference is that we did this one with the hoses that retract directly into the wall. Works great so far.
Last Friday I hiked to the top of a 7,500 foot mountain (really only did the last 1500 ft of vertical but I'll still count it as a decent hike), and then later in the day shot a bunch of wild animals and ate them for dinner. Also killed a javelina at close range with a pistol and almost got killed when a friend rolled over the Yamaha Rhino we were in while we were driving down a mountain. The manliness from that stuff lasted all week.
Yeah but a company's goodwill is destroyed if they offer to pay for electricity and then start charging for it a few years later. People are absolutely banking on free power when they run the cost/benefit analysis and make a determination to buy this car. So I'm just saying that it's going to be a material ding on profits once Tesla is charging 50-100k of these things regularly for free. Ultimately the company needs to actually make money producing cars.
