Ugh, too warm and humid to be do much, but I visit the Midlana Builder’s forum several times a day. Progress is being made on several builds there, but as warned of in the book, Life gets in the way now and then–it’s just how it goes. Several of the builders are getting closer though, and hopefully that’ll ignite some urgency in the others, hah.

Speaking of motivation, I keep getting told that I don’t promote myself, the car, or the book enough. I understand, and even agree, but it’s because I really dislike pushy ads and salespeople, so I don’t like to do it to others. Nothing shifts me to the opposite tact faster than someone pushy selling something. I had a guy  selling a bottled water service show up at the door, and when I opened it, said “uh oh.” For a second, I thought he was going to take a swing at me – he got really angry. I was curious how he planned to transition to asking for money, or maybe he planned to demand it. I suspect he realized no sale was going to happen and kinda went off the rails after that… but I digress.

So yeah, I do plan to do some promotional stuff, more shows and videos – when it cools off, which around here is October or so. There’s also all the other stuff: cold air inlet, new engine cover, wings, and so on.
