I had one of those moments the other day...
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

that's excellent news! 130 for 3acre sounds really cheap.

I'll pull up the regs again but IIRC it's too long for storage in residential district. letter was about "accessory use" not allowed. you know, things that you do other than live at a house. They're accessory uses.

fucking city, mind your business and let ME be on MY lawn.

I would find out who is the town code person, and get to know him on a first name basis and have a few phone calls or invite him to the property when you are there.  This was very helpful in my situation. 

you would be surprised on how responsive they are to people with common sense and manors as opposed to the assholes they deal with daily.

I got a nice response when I responded to the Eagle complaint.

No point in having a guest when I've got 2 parts cars in the driveway.

You live in Brighton.... 
Town code says you can't have anything longer than 24' in your driveway. Also you're not allowed to park on the lawn...
There's a fire chief who lives near my parents who has a car parked on the front law... Bothers me every time I drive by it... Don't know if it's double standard or no one has reported it...

Doesn’t make me any less angry after being fine for ten years.

report it if you're going to be "that guy"

I sent my neighbor a letter to stop rutting out their driveway by the sidewalk..
guy has a lifted JK with 24" rims..
if anybody on my street deserves an obstacle to get in the driveway its me..
whole neighborhood talks about him..
whole neighborhood talks about me for other reasons.

I'm not "that guy", justbugs me that a fire chief would not follow town code..
I do all I can to follow the town code..

I agree it doesn't make it any less annoying when someone is "that guy"

Literally dreamed of another DOT check this morning (I was admiring deep drifts of snow around a pair of e250s on the trailer while at a rest area. I'd left the passenger door open, and as I was about to leave and was walking around to shut the door and take off, DOT walked up...)

So I woke up thinking about a 12k tag, and adding up to under 26. doesn't solve any of the commercial compliance stuff, but completely simplifies everything when on my own, and avoids IFTA reporting when commercial.

Skies opened up before I had a chance to pull the winch but trailer is at m4. Full continuity test completed on winch solenoid, one Buss bar was no good. Fixed that and it did NOT fix the winch. Now passes all continuity externally. Didn’t get to verifying voltages (and thereby solenoids) but I still suspect dead winch motor. Solenoids click healthy both directions.

Left the wireless remote in the key drop just in case it fixes itself and becomes useful.

Maybe while I type it’ll stop raining. Not looking good for that.
