Nice pickup....  (pun intended)

Trucks have come a long way with gas mileage.   I just sold my 2005 F350 Powerstroke (diesel) 
If I was lucky I got around 12 mpg.

I had a Miata for a short time.  Felt like I was sitting on a skateboard.  It is the Moped of small convertibles.

Go with a jeep wrangler, a mustang or a mini...

Well, currently having fun checking out the different options. Hard to say where this will end up.  I have a feeling reliability  might end
up being a large contributing factor.  The car won't get a lot of use so it has to do well just sitting around and be ready to roll when
it's time!!

I actually should have titled it the "Whoring Thread" 

So I'll start........

Just for fun, in addition to my car and truck  I'm thinking about buying a Mazda Miata or a Honda S2000 to tool around town in. Thought it might be fun to drive to the course, grocery store. Short jaunt thing. 

Anyone have/had one. Heard good/bad things?

Had both the s2000 is the one uwant. Thing goes,like the wind.

Raining today...  First thing everyone says... we need it.

Going to make the greens very receptive for tomorrows round.  Going to have to pull the shins and use
different wedges as they produce too much spin for the conditions we'll have.

Hhmmmm....  Miura's??  Average spin, great wedges for most conditions.

Just wish the Miura's had bit more spin. Then they would be perfect.  Damn good wedges though.

Saturday night...  headed down to Vegas (100 miles south of me) in the morning to meet Mark for breakfast/brunch
and to shoot the shit for a couple of hours.  Really looking forward to it. Was hoping we'd get a game in but he wasn't
able to get enough time off in between meetings.

Just want to post this picture of our version of Pebble Beach.  The photo was taken from a newly renovated patio section of the Clearwater Bay Club in HK and the view is it's Ocean 9. Course play difficult when the wind is blowing like yesterday

Been a few years since I played there but yes once the winds starts to pick up, it can be extremely difficult course...not to mention the many 'blind' holes you need to hit your approach shot to.
