Couple of weeks ago I was in Beautiful cape Ann MA. I like the town of Rockort especially and the Bears Neck Historic Area in particular. But the utility folks do you no favours with their cheap crappy installations. No doubt they charge you full price for your utility calls but give you cheap price installs. Nice area spoilt. Shame.,

I do. And often. But then the USA is not a 3rd world country. Is it?

But if we keep letting averyone into our country we could end up as a third world country:eek:
We are alredy in the spiral.

I love the USA, however I am just a peanut at the helm, with no steering power. My rudder is broke.

Back on track here.:rolleyes:

Frank you were in a Tourist area. The area is specifically set up for Electro-tourist’s like you to have something to gawk at and go home and tell all your friends and anybody else that will listen to what you saw while in the US.:laughing:

Just like the CAR HENGE in ALLIANCE, NEBRASKA :thumbsup:

Frank, while in the US, you will see plenty of electrical work that makes you look twice, and even more that you might admire. Your problem, like mine and every other electrician, is that when we travel we can't help but look at electrical work. So, I hope you have a good time anyhow, and that if you haven't had a chance to get to the Carmel area in California, that you do at some point, as it is one fine site to behold for both you and your wife. It also has top notch diving if you are into that sort of thing, plus plenty of nice little shops.

It's been a while since I was last in California. I remember the drive from SF to LA as one of the best motoring drives ever undertaken. Staggeringly beautiful. Spent so much time looking west towards the ocean that I noticed nothing at all electrical. Which is probably as well since i get just a tad too much of it over here

in keeping with the british/american theme, in 1973 i did that road as a
passenger in a friends mini cooper. cams, carbs, exhaust, porting, 12:1
compression.

not for the faint hearted. the only thing i remember about the trip was
that i survived. 90+ mph most of the way.

i didn't notice either the scenery, or the wiring. too busy admiring the
guardrails.

Mini Coopers.

I had a Mini Cooper S. I even took the bumpers(fenders) off to make it lighter. Changed the Carbs to twin DeLorto and shaved the head a touch. She went like a rocket and stuck to corners like glue.

If you are going to kill yourself then do it when you are younger and don't care. Rear seat activity was not recommended and problematic and as a result I now have a permanent bad back. Aahhh. The simple pleasures of innocent youth,

Definitely one thing those big old American sedans were good for!

A friend of mine in High School had a Buick Electra, and we used to borrow it for dates.... :whistling2:
