    Have it done or do it myself: oil change?

    I do my own and run the synthetic media filters, and a top grade full synthetic oil. I don't trust other people to care about my stuff.

    Up early or stuck to the mattress?

    I've always been an early riser. Can't sleep late because I always have stuff to do. Even back when I was working musician, playing clubs and drinking and such, I still woke up at 5:00 / 5:30 and got stuff done.

    I did this to give my fish oxygen. But it's in Illinois....

    Changing fluids

    A mechanic told you not to change the transmission fluid because if you did it might "blow up". Find another mechanic...

    moving form California to Tennessee

    Nashville is a good area. I used to go there often. It's a perfect blend of North/South climate, too.

    Odd noise coming from our patriot. Thoughts on what it could be.

    Sometimes it's a hiss. Sometimes it's a groan...

    Hers is about due for new shoes as well. Winter is closing in, here in Illinois.

    What do you do for a living?

    I just play them. And mandolins. And Resonators. And Bass. Hey, if you're from the Valley, and old enough, you may know of this guy I wrote this tribute about.

    Guess I'm the only Bluegrass lover here.

    Department of Environmental Conservation closed access to my favorite camping site.

    There has always been idiots. It just seems like the percentage continues to increase at an alarming rate.

    My wife's Patriot is a 2015 High Altitude 4wd. I just changed the oil last weekend at 95,000 miles. Man that has been a trouble free rig and it just eats snow. It's been one of the best vehicles we've ever owned. It has copper spark plugs that need changed every 40,000 or so. 20 minute job...
