Bitchin' Betty's Adventure Time

I'll post here once in a while for any funky stuff and Betty's adventures!

For today...we went to see the missus horse. He didn't kick me in the face so that's a win!

Not easy coming up with an appropriate retort :-)

Soooo ... Betty is the CX-3, the horse, or the wife? And what's that slant-sided yurt?

I keep thinking you're in Australia.

Our seldom-used navi was finally updated only yesterday, but when employed she loves to interrupt even the nicest music.

'Must be a good story what you were doing on the kicking end of the horse :-)

Sometimes I do wish I was in Oz, then it’s would be no hesitation on lowering springs!!

Haha! I was brushing him. I’m terrified of being kicked so I had to face my fear according to my lady. She’s had him for over 13 years so she’s fine...me, not so much xD

Alberta, you probably get a touch of the white from time to time ... a little extra ground clearance comes in handy.

They say animals sense apprehension ... sure is a small picture, but looks impressive.

Touch of white is an understatement sometimes lol. But its not the fluffy stuff, it's the iced over ruts. Where I am, they did an especially horrible job of street clearing last season.
Main roads only. Even saw a couple of jacked up 4x4's stuck spinning wheels going nowhere (I secretly cheered).

Yes with the horse I smiled at him a lot as they do remember faces. If you go in with a scowl they pick up on that and get apprehensive themselves.
With the picture, it seems to auto re-size when I'm using my phone to upload and comes out small... Not sure how to adjust that

Changed out the 2nd “floor” in the back. Big Rocky Mountain road trip soon.
Got some stronger 1/2” particle board (Home Hardware), traced the shape, and jigsaw’d it to fit.
Finished with some standard automotive carpet (Canadian Tire) velcroed on so I can change the carpet when it gets ratty.
Will store the main and 2nd floors; and just use the new reinforced one.
Gives the trunk (“boot” lol) a bit more depth and now I’m not worried about killing the flimsy factory board.

'And now you can fit that supplementary sub-woofer you were thinking about :-)

P.S. 'Love your workbench(s) ... similar to mine √

P.P.S. Betty's not going on the trip?

Haha no subwoofer for me. I’m fine with the tunes the way they are.

The workbench is a one of a kind positioning system used in conjunction with a foot. Very economical 🙂

Betty Blue is going to have to be good and take me and the missus nicely through the mountain passes all loaded up with gear. However she was a bit pissed that I sat in a 2019 CX3 while she was getting an oil change. She’s jealous she doesn’t have an armrest lol....so am I to be honest.
