Well I’ve fallen behind again on posting. The HondaSUV Olympics have come and gone. It was a great event hosted by the talented Varmint (aka Kyle). We had one more car than we had the previous Olympics. The events were a blast as always, and amazingly enough mother nature held out and gave us some beautiful weather. The event was in the Franconia Notch of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Cannon Mountain played host to us again. We did our usual blindfolded auto cross, and then I think it was called Crazy Commute. I ended up coming in, in 3rd place. Which I wasn’t even trying, so I guess I can’t complain. Day 1, we did the Olympics events, went to the top of Cannon, and then continued our games. Craig had to work, so we drove up in two separate […]
For the 4th of July weekend, we were invited down to Virginia to celebrate my cousin Will’s graduation from High School. btw Will CONGRATS! We had a wonderful weekend. My Aunt and Uncle kindly enough provided hospitality for us and were gracious hosts. We drove down Friday night after work. Didn’t hit much traffic. I went to use my trusty cell phone with my laptop and it wouldn’t work. Tried calling Cingular but of course my call dropped and I lost coverage. So we arrived around 11:30 and packed it into our bedrooms. Saturday we went out and picked up the grandma and also got some foods for the party. The graduation party was great, Will made out very well. We had a really great time. Sunday, we got up and drove down to Fredericksburg to meet up with Majomortensen. […]
Yesterday was the annual NEMC BBQ at FDR Park over in Yorktown Heights, NY. We had a fairly good turn out, but still didn’t get the 10 cars we were looking to make. Even though the North East Member Club has one of the highest member numbers, we can never seem to get more than 9 cars to an event. The picnic went very well. Rudy did all the organizing and planning. Craig and I showed up around 1:30, and we stayed until almost 7:00. The weather held out wonderfully, couldn’t have asked for better weather. We had one new person show up. It was great getting to see everyone again.
I haven’t posted yet about my CRV. Well the CRV has long been in my life. Well I guess not really that long, but since 1998. I got my first one then, a black one which I loved. It was what hooked me on Honda and I went from being an American car person to looking at overseas vehicles. My current CRV is a 2002 EX. I’ve done a few mods here and there. Nothing super expensive because my budget is pretty tight. So far have been the sport stickers, tinting the front windows, painting the calipers, door sill plates, side-markers (my biggest undertaking), cargo net, accent lights, accord key fob, super white parking lights, door edge guards, Sylvania Silverstar headlights, i-Vtec emblems, EX emblem, a Thule roof rack (thank you), wheel locks (thank you) and lastly my new tires […]
