When the rare winter storm hits the central plains besides electricity there is nothing I’d rather have than a Land Rover. Never been stuck (knock on wood). Here in another week or two, we’ll be wishing for cooler weather. Thanks for reading, and Happy Rovering.
I was wondering why I was sweating so much. I guess its time for a new thermometer. Stay cool…thanks for reading.
This is dashcam footage of the May 20th, 2013 tornado. This tornado went on into Moore Oklahoma and wreaked the havoc and destruction that has been reported on so much lately. We helped clean up around the Country Club Estates where this tornado set down. It’s rapid growth is something you seldom get to see.[…]
I love getting a great email like this one. Henry’s Classic, I love that color. Dear Eric,I’ve wandered around on your web pages in the past and have read a few of your tech tips and marveled at the bravery a non-mechanic can show when needs must! I’m a 40 year Railway man two trade[…]
Traffic. I drive through Moore and South Oklahoma City on my way to my job at the capitol every day. My hours allow me to miss most of the traditional 0800 and 1700 traffic pile ups. When bad weather hits, all bets are off. The recent tornado in Moore has cut the city virtually in[…]

School was hard on me this semester and my writing energy was hammered by the class. Also, one[…]

It seems like every time I drive the Range Rover I get a Code 44. This is a GROSS over exaggeration of course. It only happens every other time. 😉(did I just use an emoticon in my blog? Wow. I need help.) I saw the Check Engine Light come on during the drive home on[…]
We always kid around about going out on the porch to watch the tornado. My daughter and wife watched the 2012 Norman tornado blow by the house (2500 feet) just last month from the “safety” of our back porch. However nothing really compares to this… Here’s a longer clip from Youtube. This was recorded in[…]
