Geneva on the Lake is a hop, skip, and jump from my place. Like 25 minutes.

I grew up in the TEXAS dry heat. the marine corps stuck me in PENDLETON!29PALMS and then sent me to NC before they shipped me way down south where it's 105degrees and a 120% humidity at night and even better during the day you rarely had nothing more than a shelter half and if you were even close enough to someone else that would share there other half to make a tent?
My sinuses suffer hear and every time I go home and cross that Texas line it's like full drainage and I am great the whole time I am there and most of the trip home but around through South Carolina and into NC I can feel my head stopping up again?
The Carolina coast is riddled with shipwrecks even from the 1600's and it is a metal detectors dream if you have the time to go for it.
I have a map of the ship graveyard of the Atlantic I can add if you would like to see it.
Everyone have fun.

I don't think so?
The two points on the map for NC are in the 30's at night and might be getting the S word soon?
Even down at the beach we are 50-60 highs with the 30's at night but rain,rain,rain. Not hard and fast just a slow drizzling soaking one?
Wrong time of year to visit.

The humidity just means your smoke doesn't dry out as fast!
But if you pick up more than you can get rid of then it can also kinda get moldy?
Fairly quick?
OH! Sorry? I thought we were talking about storing collard greens? That are Real popular around here in the farming community?

It's not the collard greens that are popular up here.

On another note, did you here that California is having a shortage of "collard greens" due to a bad growing season. The woods burned up and took those greens.

I think this time of year you're supposed to be in Jacksonville, Tallahassee or points south. August in Minnesota, etc.

Hey all, Merry late christmas & New years.

So i been out of commision for a bit, i flew my paraglider into a boulder & my right leg took the entire hard impact almost done recovering . But the "collard greens" have made it easy.

I recieved a question about my air intake system so i will share with everyone in case anyone else needs help in the future hope this helps..


(A&B) go together.. the worthless air box goes on the passenger side of the turbo you may need to rotate a few things to get it all settled. The picture is not how the old one sets in place. I deleted my worthless air box. If you want to delete yours you can just find a rubber end cap to fit the hole not sure the size. & hose clamp it down.





**I used duct tape on the switch for now to prevent shorts from the metal intake tube. I also just took the air sendor out of the old air box & plugged it back in & zip tied it off to the side to stop dash light.**






**How the new one sits in place.**






*** I also had to putty weld two holes shut..***







** i paid $65 for the air filter &intake .
** the reducers, rubber couplers & tubes are $10.00 or less at pepboys.
**Tubes are 3"
**4"-3"reducer (2)
**(1)90 elbow
** (1) 45 degree bend.. ( GET METAL TUBES...)

Hey, you do a lot of work when you're at home on the mend. Thinking of milder hobbies?
