Re: Toilet paper shortage!!

So sorry to hear that! I was laid off once in my life, at Christmas, a month before my daughter was born...BEYOND stressful! I had to take my wife for a critical x-ray of her new knee on Wednesday, they would not let me in. Bizarre thing was we had gloves and proper N95 masks on...and most of the Pe...

Re: Toilet paper shortage!!

Morning World! How is everybody doing? Who has been laid off...still working? A massive layoff back East in Quebec may ripple down and affect one of our 510 people here on the Coast, lets hope not. I took a few days and stopped my ramblings on here, spinning off to my basement projects and went for ...

Re: drive anyone?

I caught a snippet of that also. "Russian President Vladimir Putin will refuse to submit to what the Kremlin sees as oil blackmail from Saudi Arabia, signaling the price war that’s roiling global energy markets will continue." Would it not be funny if there was so little traffic, that we did not hav...

Re: Toilet paper shortage!!

Funny that you 2 should mention a book. I spent all day Sunday taking some of my boxes apart that I brought home from work. In there was my binder of stories, which I have also printed as hard copies. The binder at this point is almost 4" thick of my ramblings, of which are a LOT of stories that ver...

Re: drive anyone?

It is 1.04.9 here in White Rock, last time I filled up a week or so ago it was 1.12.9. This will stay like this for awhile, easily into the summer I think. Did you see the price of Alberta oil, it was down to 4 bucks a barrel, I think their cost is upwards of 50-70 bucks a barrel. I'm actually reall...

Re: Newsletters from the 510 Club of B.C. 1991-2011

I will keep the calendars, they are so nice. Will be lots of boxes of these maybe still sitting around, as our membership was very healthy at the height of the Club. My next mission is to get rid of all the newspaper stuff I have, to do with my past work at the various gold companies I worked at, th...

Re: Toilet paper shortage!!

Loved the Andromeda Strain! Good to hear from you Jason, as the Realm is my only form of contact these days, nice to hear from the crowd. This weather is not conducive to getting outside either. The fear factor will be driving a lot of people crazy that are shut in, no work, mortgages or rent due an...

Re: New swap-4G63T

We run a 1 1/8" front bar, No rear bar. I get the fender issue, we built my car with the idea of running massive castor right from the start, plus, I increased my wheelbase some. be aware that some shocks when "stiffend" up, do NOT react fast enough under Solo use. Unlike road racing, Solo requires ...

Re: drive anyone?

Knox Mountain Hillclimb cancelled for this year. Will have to plan out a different drive this year, maybe do that big loop up the Canyon to Ashcroft to Merritt, then 5A to Princeton and back down the Hope Princeton, take a picnic lunch to maintain "social distance"...Cripes.

Re: Newsletters from the 510 Club of B.C. 1991-2011

Potentially found a new home!

Once, if, maybe, this virus stops, a wealth of history, stories and pictures moves on.

I actually don't feel bad, as I LIVED and BREATHED it for a lot longer than the life of the 510 Club of B.C., and, my albums and stories are still buried in my archives.

Re: New swap-4G63T

ONLY 3 degrees of castor? THAT is sure not going to help you on corners! MORE castor induces more negative camber in a corner, bare minimum you want to be running 5- 5.5 degrees. I ran just over 6 degrees at my most competitive time. YUP, made the car a bear to steer at slow speed, but, on the cours...
