adventures in the industrial zone

seems like a good time to finally switch to b99 biodiesel. that's fuel that is 99% made from recycled vegetable oil.

tried to call the local guy who got the tank put in in durham, then tried to call the co-op. no answer, so i just went on down to the tank to see what's what. figured i'd walk away empty-handed but it's close, so that was ok with me.

oh, how i love the industrial zone. the combination of nature and junked cars and cement plants and unexpected businesses (a funeral parlor, f'instance) makes me excited.

the tank is behind the fence of a mechanic's yard. the mechanic was there and he explained-- you join the co-op, call the local guy and he gives you a key code so you can fill up any time the yard is open.

all pretty cool. i can probably get it all arranged before my current tank runs out.

plus i got those photos of the english car place. they totally need to get sarah to model for them with that mini for an ad.

Hi Lisa -

I thought you might appreciate some of the pictures Brad and Dave took at Flying Circus the last time they went trolling for spare Land Rover parts.

There's some interesting ones of the Double-Decker bus.

Also I managed to snap a few shots of my favorite vehicles.
