I went for a cruise in the country, and stopped by a film location for the Hunger Games, about 4-5 miles from my house.
Took this photo in front of one of the old mill houses used in the film.

1. I replaced the passenger side door lock and micro switch. Finally fixed the problem with my window not dropping when I open the door!

2. Added a chrome bezel to my gauge cluster. It is a really nice upgrade to brighten up the interior.

88 MPH average?

That's awesome.

The missus and I did some serious top-down motoring this afternoon and carved some apexes on the way to BFE in East Texas.

Never get tired of this stuff.............

Finished installing a 3.6 engine in my 2003 Boxster. Turned it over and drove 4 miles.

It seems every small town in Nebraska has one restaurant - I believe state law requires that it be an absolute dive - that serves pretty good food. Tonight we drove out to Stockman's in Amherst, for prime rib and a beer. Sunny, only about 45*, but nicer than it's been in days. (It snowed on Wednesday!!) Forecast for the weekend looks good - hopefully the crappy weather is behind us!

2.5 hour drive through the back roads of East Texas with the missus, hunting down the bluebonnets that dot the Texas roadside every spring.

Yesterday was detail and maintenance day, today was drivetime only.

Never get tired of this stuff.

p.s Got premium gas for $3.56 this morning.

Placed an order from DC Auto for a used fuel pump and sending unit. I hope I can get my Boxster back on the road soon! It's been three weeks now...
