I didn't want to get one, but work pretty much made me. I've only needed to drive a vehicle that would require one twice in the last 7 years i've been with Cummins and for those times I just found a tech to drive for me.

Hannah kept yelling at me for how I was driving all weekend after being in a truck during the days. Apparently I was taking turns excessively wide and driving too slow

Got a job offer for the electrification position with Cummins today. Should have an offer letter by later this week. Will be working on pre-production electric powertrain development

Good weekend. Uneventful really. Ran a 3.8 mile trail run that's part of an 8 race series that I'm doing between now and December.

Heading to Asheville this weekend to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary.

Thanks! We also just paid off all of our student loans recently, so life feels a bit different financially as well haha. Look up the tuition for SCAD and then assume we both went there. It's been a long road over the past 7 or so years.

Well, hopefully the coolant leak on the MK7 is taken care of. New water pump, auxiliary water pump, and thermostat under warranty.




And yay, a new recall notice with no fix yet.

On another note, I got to visit Max for the first time in 5 years when I was in SC fixing an electric delivery van so that was cool

Anyone know how to check to see if The Fed is okay? GolfMK7 is worried about him.

The guy doesn't/didn't want to be found though...just sayin'

I remember him posting something about getting a "burner" phone just to do logging or use OBD11 or something...because he didn't want it to be traced
