To the Crew and friends!
2012 was a tough year for us, I lost a dear cousin and my wife lost her father, so here's hoping for a much better 2013!

Skins host a playoff game so a good start already.
Ravens made the playoffs too.
But the important thing is for two sides to get together and sort out an important issue that affects us all. Time to work out a deal and avoid a disaster, come on!
We cannot miss Hockey season!

took a cat-nap from 9 PM to 1:30 AM on Friday night. Piled the family into the car and left Spotsylvania, VA at 2:30 AM
Apparently waking up in the middle of the night, having "supper" and then going back to bed for another 4 hours was pretty common a century plus ago. Not having a M-F job, we just drive when it works out. Somehow I managed a 12 hour sleep yesterday. Guess visiting all the relatives got to me. On the road again tomorrow. My '97 Outback rolled over 90,500 miles this week.
(The only issue I'd have with the hogrings these days is worrying about the airbag sensors, or side airbags themselves).
See y'all next year.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2013!
Juice, sorry, I think the Redskins are not going to advance beyond this Sunday.
#34039 of 34359 Replaced wife's Honda Pilot
Jan 04, 2013 (7:16 pm)
My wife's Pilot was getting a little beat up so I bought her a new car for Christmas and her birthday (she's a Christmas Baby). Unfortunately Subaru doesn't have a reasonable 7 passenger SUV, so I ended up getting her an Acura MDX. (The new Pilot really is ugly, the Acura is at least tolerable).
It's a lot more solidly built and quieter than Acuras/Hondas of the past. It handles really well for an SUV and she likes it. It's well made/put together, and has a reasonably luxurious interior. The third row is just big enough for an average sized adult to fit (for a short time anyway).
I couldn't justify the $75k for a Land cruiser/Lexus, didn't like the BMW/GM/Ford SUVs. I did really like the MB ML and GLs, but my wife didn't feel comfortable driving a Benz.
I have really liked Hondas/Acuras in the past but it seems they really lost their way over the past 10 years. Hopefully they are starting to do better now. We'll see how the MDX ownership goes!

You're on, loser buys first round at the next auto show we both attend.
To be honest I have no expectations, just happy that they are fun to watch again.
