Go without a plan. Seriously. The 100 Acre Wood Rally was on the 27th and 28th of February in Potosi, Steeleville and Salem, MO. I live in St. Louis, had never been, and decided that this was the year I would finally go experience the rally. Read more...

The Last Surviving Transatlantic Ocean Liners - ranwhenparked

The first decade of the new millennium was a particularly difficult time for ocean liners.

How To Get The Boot From The Ford EcoBoost Challenge - Andrew T. Maness

Gym Rats And What They Drive - flying lap

It's the best way to directly inject caffeine into my bloodstream, similar to shooting heroin when snorting it doesn't quite cut-the-mustard. During my caffeine infused high, on ocassion, instead of my usual routine of googling Lil Wayne's net worth, or bitting my toe nails, I head to the gym for a half-ass workout and some high quality people watching.
