I'd MUCH rather go sailing in the cold than work on cars in the cold. It was dry and sunny yesterday so, between the heavy winter gloves, double socks, triple pants, and my down jacket, I was plenty warm. Can't work on cars dressed like that, and cold rain is the worst. I'd rather be out in the snow than rain at almost any temperature, but especially in the cold.And here I am at 38 degrees saying hell no to even walking into the garage. Can't feel my fingers after about 2 minutes, it's miserably cold here right now! Tried diagnosing something on my dad's X3 and I had to come back inside every few minutes... the misty rain just makes everything 10x worse. I replaced the rear glass struts on my Mountaineer at least... I know it's a nasty day when I feel like that's actually accomplishing anything lol.
I couldn't imagine going sailing in cold weather... if I try it (sounds like a ton of fun) it'll be during the summer!
Definitely would agree that winter is not the time of year to start sailing lol, but that was kind of my point in that example. I learned to sail during times of year when it was warm enough that it was only uncomfortable to end up in the water, rather than extremely dangerous. Kind of like I didn't use the maximum capabilities of my 15G until I had a good sense of when it was and wasn't safe to do so.
Have you driven a 2000 GLT? My friend's is WAY faster than my mom's 99, and our 99 is fast enough to do what I need it to do but just. I'm going to turn it into a 2000 and then throw on a 15G and a 00 T5 tune.....so much for it being a GLT at that point lol but point being it would be adequate if I wasn't me and doing that kind of thing seemed prohibitively challenging.Eh, the 2.5Ts are alright, but the older LPTs just barely meet that level. Faster than an NA white block and MUCH faster than an NA red block, at least... lol. Those are borderline dangerous merging onto the highway!
