$593 installed. doin' it, or rather gettin' it done.Scheduled an electrician to come out to quote (and possible just go ahead and install) a price for another NEMA 14-50R along my side of the garage, with conduit, cable, and a breaker to the appropriate sub panel on the garage wall just outside where it'd be.
I like the look of them, but not for $110k specced appropriately. S doesn't like them so I won't get one any time soonI drove a Rivian R1T today. Very quick at full throttle. Sluggish off the line accelerator pedal calibration. Materials felt nice enough. Greenhouse felt quite similar to that of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, if you're familiar with that, so not airy but not claustrophobic. My head touches the headliner in the rear seat with nominal 38.1" headroom.
Thus I ended up with this for her:
Yellow bindings to be like my yellow Look Pivot 14s. (Look Pivots proper are out of the question for her since they have about 6 mm of adjustment capability for BSL! plus most of them don't go down low enough in DIN for what she'll need, which is about 3.5.) Those bindings are GripWalk compatible via that GW bit in their name, so she can get comfier-to-walk-in boots next fall, potentially Nordica HF Elite W fancy rear-entry ones.
Hell, even if she goes for Apex boots at some point then she'll fit. 281 and 291 BSL for Mondo 23 and 24 Apex boots, longer than one would expect because the exoskeleton is exo and all.
you're kidding, right?new-school rear-entry design.
New school in that Nordica is bringing rear entry to nice boots. Not just for 1980s rental stock!you're kidding, right?
Built-in heat is very bougie. well done.
On the perennial topic of floorplans of RVs I'll never buy since ultimately we're not RV people, here's a Super C layout that'd work out nicely for me in the theoretical sense:Wasting time during my (actually busy) 5-10 PM shift tonight. What would relaxing the 35' limit a bit yield, still in the gas Class A realm (so F-53 and 2020 V-10/2021+ 7.3 V8)?

38' length or so. 22.5" wheels! and optional air and hydraulic (?) suspension options. 26k GVWR but only 30k GCWR so 4k towing. On the upside one gets 1.5 baths and perhaps better construction? nah, probably still slapped together! Optional 2 kW inverter and 2 solar panels--weak sauce for true off grid, not that this can leave pavement much at all.
Fleetwood Boulder 36F
38' 9". Very similar structurally: 22.5", 26/30k GVWR/GCWR, air/hydraulic suspension options. 2 full baths in this one, though! Not on floorplan but in options list is the extra overcab bunk. Otherwise amazing how similar these layouts are.
Ok, back to work.
in relation to the stupid-expensive RVs, my plan to renovate the mountain house's interior, or both?
Does this mean she's now cycled further than you this year?View attachment 183254
Baby Aya’s first journey over the road: 3 miles back from her preschool to home. Quite nerve wracking. No one got run over.
Recall that on my Highlands Ranch bike-train-bike-train-bike adventure I was forced to take my old drop bar acoustic commuter bikeDoes this mean she's now cycled further than you this year?
