A Day at the Races – Charlie the Charger on a Performance Run

My favorite thing to do on a beautiful sunny day is drive with the windows down and the music up. But in Northern Virginia, Charlie has all these horses and no room to gallop.  Finally, while we were bored after lunch this weekend, Girl and I decided to take Charlie out for a proper ride. 

Empty parking lots are surprisingly hard to find, even on a Sunday south of the Mason-Dixon.  Even the high school driver training course was in use (which would have been PERFECT!)


Luckily, we found a huge, completely empty parking lot for some electronics company (which totally didn’t have any ‘No Trespassing’ signs…)

And the rest, as they say, is history.




I love the smell of burning rubber in the morning.

This is a Triumph

I want everyone, no matter how old or young you are, to watch this.




Fleetwood Mac is Flowchart Mac

I did this for a contest a while ago for some flowchart design startup. Enjoy!
