    New Jeep Tires and Wheels

    by  • September 20, 2015 • Cars, Jeeps • 2 Comments

    I’d been having issues with the Jeep and death wobble, and I was throwing money at the problem (it’s a Jeep, after all).  Tie rod ends were worn so I replaced them.  The track bar was squirrely so that was replaced.  And I still had the issue — I found out on my way...

    New Colorado Toll-Road Transponder

    by  • June 21, 2015 • Cars, Colorado • 0 Comments

    This is a public service announcement.  If you get a new transponder for your car so you can take toll roads in Colorado for a cheaper cost, prepare to receive a big hunk of plastic for your windshield circa 2004. If you want the option of either paying a toll or riding for free...

    Car Accident

    by  • December 21, 2014 • Cars • 0 Comments

    I feel like I bought the Audi yesterday and it’s already been in a car accident.  We had an early snow with frigid temperatures on November 13th and that made an accident likely.  I was on Highway 287 going north and in the left-turn lane on Arapaho.  The light turned yellow and I decided...

    Yes, it Snows in Colorado

    by  • September 8, 2014 • Cars • 0 Comments

    I’ve been following the same routine every winter since 2009.  I’ve driven a Mercedes CLK followed by an SLK every summer, and I’ve switched it with the Jeep every time it threatens to snow in the winter.  I only have a one-car garage, so it’s been annoying at best.  The summer sun is getting...

    I just got home from spending the weekend with my friend Karen in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and it was truly amazing.  It’s a small but impressive national park near Montrose, and I didn’t even realize how near I’d been to it many times over the years.  I’ve driven along the Blue Mesa Reservoir...

    My car is pretty low to the ground, and when I am parked next to SUVs I have to creep out in order to see if there are any cars coming.  I definitely do it slowly enough so that other people can see me.  I thought I did, anyway.  I was doing that at...

    I drive a convertible now and I have in the past.  There’s something about the wind in my hair and the sun on my skin that makes and keeps me happy.  I love new cars (don’t we all?) so I’m always shopping for the convertible that will replace my current one.  That meant I...
