Wow I actually have a cooler with pump already. From when I had knee surgery. I could DIY that easy.

You want to the tubes to be right next to your skin for maximum effect, if there's a bunch of layers of insulating cloth in between it won't work anywhere close to as well.

Our race car uses a cool seat, works wonders. Doesn't get the head, same as a shirt, but our drivers were still flipping it off and on to keep from over cooling during a 80+ degree day.

congrats, now get to work. :-P

mine took me 5 1/2 years, but it was worth it. I'm sure yours was too. I feel like many get degree's, but few get educations, and it seems like you are part of the latter group!

Congrats.

I remember mine. Ronald Reagan gave me my diploma. USNA administration said he was going to award diplomas to the first 100 graduates (I was in that group), but he stayed up there to the very last man. Now that's a President.

Oh, and his speech was uplifting and forward looking. A different era I guess. Miatas didn't exist yet, but F/A-18s were just starting to roll off the line.

People who enjoy flying for a living are, in general, a little touched in the head ( I am exhibit A). Congrats! You're doing it right.

<p>Gratuitous use of the engine lift made unloading a breeze....not really. Almost lost a toe.</p><p><br /><br /><br /><br /></p><p>Garage is starting to come together. Need to build some shelves and organize some stuff. A standup freezer will be added by the engine lift at some point, and the box spring will be gone.</p><p><br /></p><p>Couldn't resist going to Day Donuts after Ed raving.</p><p><br /><br /></p><p>House is starting to grow on me, I have a feeling I won't be happy when we have to leave in the fall.

<p>Haha love it!</p><p>Progress has been slow on everything right now. I have a million things going on and it feels like none of them are getting done. Exhaust manifold should be pulled by this weekend and I will be stripping the auction car on sunday. Everything else car related has been put on hold until I start my new job and life calms down.</p><p>But thanks to Mobius I am the proud babysitter of a hardtop cart!</p><p></p>
