Why Canada Doesn’t always Get the Car

Maybe you’ve fallen for a car only to discover the automaker doesn’t sell them in Canada. Why?

Bringing 1 car to 1 country can involve
modifying 1,500+ parts

Read it online at Autonet.

Favourite line:

Consumers would see only a few major changes Nissan made to the car, but behind the scenes over 1,500 parts had to be modified to accommodate our Canadian needs.

No More Dark Circles

I love the road but it’s nice to be home.

The only plan I had was flights and the first night hotel booked. Wandered my way over to San Deigo collecting footage along the way and staying offline. Kinda living like in olden times.

I visited some stuff so I have some neat videos to edit during the next few weeks. Good stuff.

Was surprised there was so much green in the desert… I thought it’d only look like the desert in my previous post.

I cruised around in my rental with a cooler of Miller Lite, delicious. I’m used to driving standard and so I spaz out driving automatic; I always forget if I don’t hold down the brake pedal the car moves forward.

Stayed at an Indian reserve casino. You could smoke inside. I’d forgotten how horrible that is.

Of course I played Wheel of Fortune. Didn’t win. Remember where I was.

Stuff in the States really is bigger, eh; the cups, meals, signs, the everything.

For the first time in 2+ years I don’t have dark circles under my eyes. I’m going to make sure going forward I do this regularly, just stop and disappear. Turns out it’s good for me.

Plus this tweet by Mason has always stuck with me, and really, that’s how you know you should be paying attention to something… it repeats over and over in your head:

My First Vacation in Years

Hi from way south in the States! Land of giant everything, styrofoam cups and real nice people.

I’m gone all week back Sunday and probably I should’ve posted something about my absence earlier but I’ve been so excited it never occurred to me, sorry.

I _was_ going to blog my trip but once down here I realized nah, this is a vacation, so no.

I can’t just shut it off though, I’ve still been documenting.

So next week I’ve got all kinds of stuff to tell you including why I love it here, descending into a missile silo, shooting an HK MP5 on auto, walking through a turn-style into Mexico, and whatever else happens to me.
