    Trail of the Cedars - Glacier National Park

    Another hike we did kind of by accident. The parking lots were full so we had to park along Going to the Sun Road and walk back to the trailhead for Avalanche Lake trail. We took the Cedars trailhead because it was a shortcut to the Avalanche trail. The other option was a walk through a...

    All reaction scores set to zero

    It has come to the attention of the mod team that for some members the accumulation of reaction scores became a contest. This distorted and devalued the purpose of members' reaction scores. We considered several options, including completely removing the ability to 'like'. We all felt that...

    Potauto cabin air filter for the Durango

    I replaced the cabin air filter in my Durango with the new Potauto filter I bought last fall, yeah yeah yeah I know, but it was cold in the garage this winter. The existing Fram had about 60,000 miles of run time on it and was pretty dirty. I made a note to myself to change at 50,000 next...

    Glider "hovering"

    I have always wanted to add a glider certificate to my license. If I lived in an area with mountains I certainly would. This glider pilot found a mountain wave and is perched in one place with a great view. Pretty cool.

    Old Toyota

    I hate to admit, but I don't know what this old Toyota is... I took this picture a while ago in Austin, TX. It is in fantastic shape with zero rust and an almost perfect body.

    How to tell the difference between a 3-way and a 4-way household light switch?

    I have either a 3-way or a 4-way light switch that I want to replace with a dimmer switch of the same type. The existing switch has 4 conductors, does that mean it's a 4-way switch? Is there a recommended brand for LEDs?

    RV towing needs Class A CDL for GCVW > 26,001 lbs and/or trailer > 10,001 lbs

    My state exempts any RVs from anything other than a normal operators license - no CDL requirement. However, I found that many states require CDLs for non-commercial (private use) vehicles, including RVs, that have a GVWR or GCWR > 26,001 lbs and/or a trailer weight > 10,001 lbs. I have to...

    Snow wave

    I've been taking pictures over the last several days of this snow that built up on my deck handrail. It started out standing straight as snow accumulated over a few days. I noticed it was slowly bending over and ended up looking like a wave about to crash on the beach. It finally fell today...

    Covering Durango grille in winter to raise engine oil temperature

    I cover most of the grill on my Durango in the winter to reduce the air across the radiator, in an attempt to get the oil temp above 165F. Below 165F the oil pump is always on the high pressure side and above it's on the low pressure side. I see no need to run around constantly with 90 pounds of...

    Snowblower started on first pull after 2 years of sitting

    We got about 9" of snow last night, so I decided to get the snow blower out. I store it with an empty gas tank and the float bowl emptied. I fueled it up and gave it a few pumps with the primer and it started on the first pull!!! I don't use it often, but when I don't feel like shoveling, it...
