Big thanks to Brangle who found that my angel eye issue was a blown fuse, and my headlight angle issue was a loose bulb. .. I swear that i did check both items previously... I swear!

Even bigger ups to DrewDown and SwiftMotorverkes who worked through 8pm on his birthday to install the M3 suspension in my car.. damn, what a difference, along with the turner sways/links the thing feels PLANTED.


Rt 17 ride was a joy oh joyous joy...

I'd be dead, very fun and challenging but treacherous as well... 830 on a Tuesday night was joy.

The thing that scares me most on that road are the deer. No, I'm not afraid of Bambi. I am afraid of hitting something that weighs as much as a refrigerator though.

That's when it turns fun. I was in the truck with my mom one day on a corner like that and a deer was sliding down the hillside right for the highway

So many accidents happen on that road that they actually built a helipad at the Summit.

Plenty of people taking up parts of both lanes... and way too many trucks when I came across in the am.
