Thanks, Mark.

I needed that, the Jeep, today. My M3 shooting blind almost got stuck turning around in a heavy snow. The snow on top was dry and cold, but it'd been in the 40s yesterday, so the ground was not frozen and very slick. Thankfully I was able to rock it out. Plan B was to have the rangers push me out, in appreciation for the calendars I gave them at the first of the year. (Always think ahead.)

Glad you made it out! I've had a few times that I've been out shooting in the M5 where I really wish I'd taken the Jeep. Now I try to take it whenever I go out. More room for gear, and just more capable. I'd hate to miss a shot because I didn't want to take my car down a certain road or trail.

How do you like the new Cherokee? I was thinking it would be the one to replace my 04 with. Unless i move out west.

traded a non working car for it then lifted it 2 inches and threw some big tires on it.

Nice Jeep

I really like the new Grand Cherokee. It's very comfortable, quiet, and spacious inside. Power is pretty good with the new Pentastar V6. The 2011's have a 5 speed automatic transmission which I don't think mates very well to the V6. It tends to bog a bit and hunt for gears too long. I think this is something they are looking to change in the years to come. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it.

Here's a shot of the M5 from today:

Thanks! It's kinda on it's last legs sadly.

yeah, I'm noticing that with a lot of the newer transmissions, I think the companies are lost for what to do. I feel like it's an argument over comfort vs. emissions.

I had a debate at a dealership i worked at long ago at how the automatic was shifting too early and the engine was bogging down. The final answer really is that all of them are doing it to get every last drop of fuel on the EPA testing. In the real world however, it can cause carbon build up and let's face it, it is a bit hard on an engine when it bogs down. Long story short, average driver is going to get worse mileage with it, unless they drive like a grandma. But as long as it hits the EPA targets, people seem happy.

Love that version of the M5, just looks classy.

Very nice. Just shows you can take something ho-hum and on a rainy day to boot and still come up with a great image.

Comm Ave looking inbound? Near the Harvard Ave stop on the Green Line? Looks familiar.

I went into the office today, but was the only one there, so I went out in the snow and took advantage of it:


White-tail yearling in heavy snow by dcstep, on Flickr

Despite my great snow tires, I was close to stuck a couple of times. I think it's because it was in the 40s yesterday and unpaved ground was soft and slick. The snow on top was dry and if I stayed on pavement I was ok, but when I got off a time or to, to turn around and such, it was tough getting going again. It should be better in the morning, so long as the snow's not too deep for the M3.

This shot shows how heavy the snow got at times today.
