For a good while now I have wanted a GoPole so I can get some footage from different angles. But being me I am usually broke and cant justify the $40. So wandering around a store the other day I saw a mop and handle that was a little over $1.50. I soon thought to myself that I could make my own pole as I have a grab bag of mounts. So I grabbed the dremel and went to work. After about 10 min I have this! My own little GoStick

So today I spent a lot of money getting new tires for my wife's truck. They were really needed as the previous set had gone pretty much bald. But they are very nice.

But today I stumbled upon a project that I had completely forgotten about. My wing! After all the moving and training in the last two months I had put it up and "lost" it. But today while cleaning up and packing I found it! Now I have to dig up the rest of the parts and put it back together. If you look closely you can see it "buried"

So after a while in the new car I am impressed. Not only is it a comfortable, it has one of the most important things in a car that is in colorado in the winter...a heater.

Anyway according to the manufacturers MPG rating its supposed to get 24mpg. I do a lot of driving to and from work and its mostly around base (stop and go) so I expected to get around that. I have averaged over 30MPG! That is over double what the jeep was getting so I am a very happy man right now.

So a while ago(2ish months) ago I totaled my jeep after somebody hit me. Well Finally got the check yesterday and found a car today!

I bought a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer. It had a slight wobble at 70mph+ so I had them give it and alignment and its going on monday to the Mitsubishi dealership for a check up. Should pick it up on Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. Ill throw up some pictures later after I pick it up.
