Daughter got one and we're ordering the same thing.

Been working on the backyard fence as a social distancing hobby. It needed upgrading in order to keep the chickens and the Sulcata tortoise in, and the deer, coyotes, and javelina out.

Since I'm a dedicated CharMan I decided that instead of spending a thousand $mackers on high dollar exterior wood finish, I'd char the pine boards instead. It's easy to do and I'll get the whole fence done on about $30 worth of propane with a weed burner, in about 1/4 the time, too. Two things about charring wood for a finish; the char is a coating and a preservative; and the wood layer under the char is torrefied, which also reduces its susceptibility to weathering and rot.

Charring as a wood finish

Drove to home town today, just to get out. Called a buddy that works for that county to say hello and ended up helping him unload 11- 5 gallon buckets of hand sanitizer. Came out to be a little north of $27 per gallon. reasonable I thought. I'll bet you folks have heard way worse stories.
Jesus, I filled up my Jeep there for less than $25.00, and it was way close to empty. Think it was $1.38.9 per gallon. (what's with the .9 anyway) Only took a global pandemic to get us below $2.00 per gallon... I know, I know, OPEC vs Putin... Pandemic does have a voice in the decrease in petro though- a big voice..

>charring as wood finish

Of course, your fire insurance company could think it's a bit suspect.

We had to go with California's fire insurance of last resort, when all the insurers decided not to cover anyone in the high fire danger area. They just did it by zip code and city limits. Never looked at our five acres cleared around the house. So the FAIR plan is a pool of those insurance companies that want to do business in the state, and the rates are based on actual fire danger, so we have a lower premium then we used to! They do send an inspector out to look at your house and objectively rate it so they can raise your rates if necessary. Our inspector came several days after California went on shutdown, so he just took one snapshot of the front of the house and that was it. I guess it proves he was here.

This gonna be my new ride! The RadBurro commercial delivery trike. Street and trail legal! Made in Seattle, I think. It's got plenty of power to get me around my hilly little town.

I've thought of getting a little scooter instead of another car.
I barely drive even twenty-thirty miles a week these days, even before the CV19 crisis. Ever since my camera eye (right eye) got that second floater I've been pretty much sidelined as a cinematographer, so I don't drive much except for groceries and errands.

Part of me just wants to get an old classic clunker and enjoy it and part of me thinks it's a silly idea, and that a scooter might be much more practical.

Nice Greger!!! Yes Mike Radenbaugh is from Seattle when he built his first eBike to get back and forth from High School. I've always said that great inventions were born out of laziness. Hmm

That electric RadBurro sounds like a great idea for schlepping around town. smile
