looks great - and was - but the luck ran low on next one (of four) when the sausage split, all fell off the stick, and a bunch of cheese and the tortilla were lost in the fire (sausage saved with some effort).
This one however, was the mosty successful and picturesque,

another in the 'how fucking lazy we americans are - whatever man!, this shitty old palette spray painted with whatever number of stars/states we have expresses my pride as an american and symbolizes my skill at democracy' series.

On the south side road, Porc. Mts. S. Park, 2018.06.25, 21:48.
- our kind of road: no traffic and we can go as slow as we like!
This is a video, with exciting and surprising animal wildlife scene at end. Either watch full through (and enjoy the mezmorizing rocking of the camera that was balanced oon the speedometer hump) or go to ~last 30 secs. Better watch full through though.
I was testing my headlights, that's why the reflective signs light up & off. When it got dark I realized I had /both/ lo-beams burned out!
Took an extra 45' on the way home, had to stop at the fucken mal-wort in ironwood to get a couple spares...
