The winter weather was really pretty mild here in the southeast during my last tank of gas and I was able to pull 43.1 MPG. I'm just hoping it will stay mild, but I think it's supposed to cool down tomorrow night.

I parked the VW after the first big snow, and even though I don't drive it I keep brushing the snow off of it and shoveling around the sides and back. It's way too much work to shovel around the front and there's no need. The pile is up to the hood and when I brush more off, I have to keep going past the end of the car.

If I back the car out, it will leave a perfect negative mold of the whole front end of the car.

My current tank of fuel on THe Beast will probably be one of my worst ever. I've been using 4wd a lot this past week.

Yay, winter! Us food delivery drivers make a killing when people dont think they can drive themselves to McDonald's on icy roads.

I decided that the VW needs some exercise. It hasn't been driven in over a month. I thought I could drive it out of its spot, but the tires were frozen to the ground. So, I had to jerk it out of its spot with my truck and a chain.

When I got home, I was surprised that it readily ascended the steep unplowed driveway back into its spot.
