Default I'm back suckas!

The big fella is back on the road! No hand controls, no adaptations, no restrictions. Look both ways for another few weeks though, it's been a while.


I've put exactly 0 miles on my Land Cruiser since September. I had to get my wife and my brother to drive it for the last 5 months just so I could sit in the passenger seat and feel at home. I feel like I'm 16......... with an 80 year old back.

See ya' on the trail!

I had to drive all day with those huge STUDENT DRIVER magnets all over the car. I forgot what it was like to drive as a student. It was crazy. If the speed limit is 40, you can't do 41. If you stop and cannot see the ENTIRE tire from the car in front of you, it's a ding. Hands at 9 and 3 (10 and 2 is no more, who knew?)

But, because they need to make sure you're ready for evasive maneuvers and emergency braking..... I got to beat that 2015 Honda Accord like it was a trail truck. If you're in the market for a used Honda, don't buy one that was used in the Craig driving school. I'm gonna guess that it needs brakes and the alignment is bad. I had my GoPro mounted too. 30mph figure eights with emergency braking in the turns....... yup, I did it. I said "Are you sure you want me to mash the brakes with the wheel at full lock and the tires already squealing?"

If you've never taken a break from driving for 3-6 months and then get back on the highway, it really is strange. Except for the 3 months while I was becoming a trained killer in the USMC, I've driven every day for more than 25 years.
