I got the OK from Noreen so tomorrow I'll be taking the wife's Fit to get my VP160, M60s and other assorted bits and pieces. That certainly will answer the question "Will it fit in the Fit".

I'm bringing the camera and will try to share my journey. Keeping in mind everyone up there is very camera shy.

Enjoy the drive and don't forget the IV drip for the new Timmies extra large. Might also help to review the video Murph posted on ordering the new sizes.

It's about 300km (180m) each way, the only downside is the parking lot called the QEW/401. With any luck it's about a 3.5hr drive, might be a little longer as it's the bosses car and I'd better treat it with respect.

I love driving so I am really looking forward to it.

*ahem*

Wayne, this is a perfect opportunity to make multiple trips in the Corvette. Seeing as how you're only gonna fit one piece in the car at a time. . .

Well lets see ......what can go wrong?







1. Leaving bank; managed to find Ancaster's deepest pothole.
2. Tire blew out.
3. Called for roadside assistance.
4. Tire changed, got back home, thank god I called for help and didn't try to use the pos jack that came with the car.
5. At 10 I can leave for Costco to see how good their roadside hazard warranty is.
6. Get an alignment (It hit very hard, only about 10kph but it was a vertical face of about 5")
7. Did I mention it is my wife's car?

Emailed Noreen and called it all off, will have to go next week. I'm sure she is devastated to the point that she is simply giving VP160s away. I suggest you order today.

On the positive side, I did have a camera so I got LOTS of pictures. I phoned the property management company and left a message. Note to self, breath, do not hold.

Did I mention it's my wife's car?

the adventure continues......

That sucks Wayne.

But thanks for the VP160 "giving them away" tip!
