Happy Thanksgiving (and more photos from my road trip)

If there’s one thing I’ve been thankful for this year, it was my last road trip that took me from the wonders of the Grand Canyons, to my (hopefully) future dog in the mountains of Colorado.  I wrapped it up by staying in Dillon, and…

Using the STP Multi-Purpose Motor Treatment to feed the Black Stallion #CBias #engineluv
