Come summer, my 200 will be boozing it up again, eveything is cheap enough that even is the spread sucks, I'll take the cost per mile loss in favor of the gain in smiles per gallon and cooler running temps in hot weather!
OK, you put Carol Stream, FL, the snowblower part kinda threw me there. What amazed me is the number pf people who pulled that stuff and had money in the first place. Kinda like the folks who complain about having to cross the Fox River to get to the east side of St. Charles............
I had that position at Toy's "R" Us for some of the time I was there Harry.............and I HATED, HATED!!!!!!!, working service desk! The people that would lie to your face, or expect to return stuff from Target or Wal-Mart (with those stores' tags still on the product!) was unbelievable, and then, so long as we carried it, I would be told by a manager to just take it back! I had no problems going out and collecting stinky garbage bags, sweeping goose dropping out of the parking lot, cleaning the bathrooms, unloading trucks, stocking shelves, ect, but I hated the service desk with a fiery passion!
Been working on some of my R/C stuff and half of the zip ties I've used broke off at the head when pulled tight, usually when tying wires to each other. Not sure if Lowes had a bad batch, if they're junk no matter what, or if the plastic has become brittle over the last couple years.
