There are almost no Exs up this way. And being diesel I really stand out. No other half ton diesel SUVs around

My gasser V-10 is a 3/4 ton SUV, just one more way that the V-10 is mightier than the oil burners I guess.

They have a pro-cess for that, eh. I spent a year (in miami!) Supervising some canadian sw guys installing a new communications system for Metro-dade back in '96-97. Sounded like I was watching a hockey game, eh.

You know you drive an excursion when your architect asks why do you need a 30 ft deep garage and 8' tall door...

Stayed in the Chateau Frontenac for a school trip a few years ago. A beautiful city but I don't habla francais too well. Smaller vehicles do seem to be more common up there, a lot more European

Is there any other place to stay?

While staying in QC I spent most of my time in the "concierge suite" ...free internet, snacks, beers. The computer was in Francais (of course) and I had a lot of time on my hands so I changed all the language settings to English, American English no less.

I return to the "scene of the crime" a few hours later for refills. I see two hotel employees in a complete meltdown - Sacre bleu, nah, nah casse, sabotage, technique, clavier...

They looked at me and I said, (in German) Kann ich meine E-Mail überprüfen?

Wo ist das badezimmer?

It took them three days to change it back to Francais.

German is my go-to non-English language too. I lived there for 4 years. Around here in Texas, there's a lot of Spanish speaking folk. When I'm asked if I speak Spanish I just ask back, ¿Habla Alemana? That's always fun lol

And if you're asking for the badzimmer, the Germans will give you a pretty funny look and be speechless

My wife speaks French and I speak a little Korean and a tiny German and I like to play this game (she HATES it) where when we get around some (usually Hispanics) that are only speaking spanish and are doing so only because others are around (like in line at the grocery store) I start looking at them and laughing and speak gibberish in Korean to Wendy. If she's not having a bad day or she feels like they are being a****les then she will talk back in French. It's great, it makes no since at all and we laugh and get to use words we almost never use. My favorite is: "Der Mustang ist ein americanisher vagon" I know I spelled that way wrong, but I can only speak a tiny tiny amount and can't spell any of it

You know you are driving an Excursion when the gas attendant filling you up looks under the truck to see if it's leaking out.

I was bad about parking next to other "suvs" before but now that I have my 4wd I go out of my way to park next to them. My favorite is when a really "nice" one with wheels and a "sweet" paint job parks taking up 4 spaces way out in the middle of no-where at the mall or Target... I park the same way but in front of them and now with the 4wd I'll be high enough to completely block them out Before it was just nice to cover them up a little and make them think twice when looking for their car when they came out of the mall.

...when you search the internet for adapters to go Green.

I found the plug in the bumper, but where do I find an adapter?




Ok, the real post is:

...when you park in the EV charging spot and take a pic in the cold, just to make people on FTE laugh!
