They just built one of those about half a mile away from me on the very road that'* getting ripped up. It was nice living in the country.

Sorry to see it slowly disappear on you. You haven't been there that long, have you? Fore ya know it, there will be a Starbucks just across the road. I live in a private lake community unchanged for 50 years. Another one just over a hill has gotten the attention of people from the nearest big city and they have split properties, flattened perfectly good cottages, built mini mansions, and drove the old neighborhood guard out because they can no longer pay the spiraling property taxes. We always give people with NY plates on their cars the dirtiest looks we can and go out of our way to be rude. Now the township is talking about enacting Zoning laws, hiring Police, and complying with a State mandated Building Code revamp. I can still target shoot in my backyard and carry a sidearm on hikes and whatever but wonder how long the luxury of living that free will remain here. I escaped here from where all this pressure is now coming from less than a decade ago, and now it'* staring me in the face.

Reminds me of that Jeff Dunham'* character, Walter. "Where the Hell am I suppose to get a job, WalMart?. I can see it now. Welcome to Walmart, get yer **** and get out!"

Started working on my tune yesterday and got a bit more done today before the meet. Upped my MAF table a bit, was very rich, dropped it a bit to compensate, and added another degree of timing. I'm not running 18* to 19* of timing at WOT with no KR. Still just a little rich. Might tweak the MAF just a bit, and looks like I need to adjust the PE table to bring my AFR closer to 10.8-11.1
