Amtrak gets in too late
@ AARR « Fri 10:57:48 am »
Once, while flying from Wichita to Boston we had a layover in Detroit, our home terminal.
@ Jetlink « Fri 10:31:07 am »
Yeah, Why JEff L no trake AMTRAK??
@ DaveO « Fri 10:18:08 am »
Years back I had a 6 hour layover at LAX. At least I got to enjoy a nice longish hot shower before the trip down the pond.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 10:13:26 am »
Righto Jetlink. Amtrak from GRR-CHI-KCY isn’t a whole lot longer, cheaper, layover in chicago sounds better than the airport, and well, it’s a train ride.
@ Jeff L « Fri 10:10:00 am »
At DFW for a 6hr layover
@ Jetlink « Fri 9:55:49 am »
sounds like something a flight crew does

There is a small group of local politicians and advocates trying to get the new F15EX assigned to Selfridge. At this time, it doesn’t sound promising, but it would be very cool if it happened.

Of course seems like the power goes out more when I am gone than when I am home.

It’s on my list. Probably when this one craps out we will pull the trigger. It is getting harder to start. Mrs Jet used to be able to start it not problem. Last couple of times she has struggled to get it running. Has electric start but the battery is trashed. Probably should replace the battery.

Indeed. I’ve used more than I ever thought I would.

good for you getting a lot of walking in, does the body good.
@ bluewonderrails « Thu 4:42:18 pm »

does bluewonder work a job that requires walking? Not many can get 2-3 hours of walking in per day just in exercise time.
@ bluewonderrails « Thu 4:39:55 pm »
I’ve gotten about 20k+ every day for a couple years. Lil by lil getting the effect of that with how my feet are. Could be the new shoes

TONY ROBBINS LEGS TIRED. 9.2 miles complete on very uneven surfaces, took about 2.5 hours. Claims 18000 steps.
@ ~Z~ « Thu 2:02:52 pm »
if I were in an area that lost power a lot and had decent sun on the roof, I'd probably go with a solar setup plus battery storage. Feed back to grid during the day, and basically have a generator for when power is out.

Seger has great songs. My favorite is "Feel Like A Number"

He’s got a handful of great songs.

I have a Generac. Same setup as Kohler. Very happy with it and am glad I have it.
@ SD80MAC « Thu 10:54:01 am »
My parents have a Kholer that is hooked right into their natural gas line. Power goes out, generator kicks on about 30 seconds later. Power restored, shuts itself off and switches the house back to the grid

heading out on a hike soon, trying for about 8 miles.

Now time to get ready for worky.
@ Jetlink « Thu 9:29:27 am »
Consumers says estimated restoration by 11:00 am. Kids go to school Jet goes back to bed. Wakes back up at 0900 and power has been restored. Thanks Consumers. Generator disconnected and stowed until next time.
@ Jetlink « Thu 9:28:25 am »
So I connected and started the generator.
@ Jetlink « Thu 9:28:10 am »
Woke up earlier to a power outage. Kids woke me up. Something about they wanted lights and water and heat to get ready for school.

Daughter #3 won both of her matches today. The girls varsity team lost on total points however falling to Lansing Catholic Central by a large margin. Ruby was the only one that bested her opponent. And the team lost both of the baker format lines as well

We played against Olivet but bowled at the bowling alley in charlotte for some reason. Had to wait for a CN choo at the crossing on Packard hwy.
