    As I write this it’s still not here but online tracking shows it as being delivered today at noon. Yay! I payed the taxes and duty online a couple of days ago. It must be getting close.

      Man, they send that thing by Pony Express?

      It's been almost a month!

      Hope the replacement ECU resolves the problem.

      Keep us posted

      I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

        Thanks Mike. Shipping has taken 28 days. That sucks, I guess that’s why Fedex and UPS are in business and charge so much.

          Who did you use to deliver it?

          And if I may ask what did they charge to ship compared to Fed Ex or UPS?

            I just had Dan send it USPS. I expected a 10 day delivery not 28 days. I wasn’t in a hurry but 28 days is “covid” ridiculous. It cost $20.75 US to ship it. I expect a courier would have been triple that plus the couriers then rape me for another $40 for Canadian customs clearance fees. I use USPS as it’s cheaper and 10 day delivery is generally fine with me - 28 days is going back in time to the pony express.

              Wow!

              I didn't know they'd rape you for an additional $40! Fucking customs fees

              You'd think you were shipping something from a third world country half way around the earth

              Even $20 seems outrageous.

              Anyway, hope it arrives and you are able to get out today and give it a test.

              I'll check back later tonight.

                      • NDY, there's a Covid19 outbreak at the Canada Post sorting facility by the airport, so I'm not surprised there's a delay getting from there to you.

                        the day Moto Burrito opens let's meet up for Mexican coffees and some breakfast. I'll try not to lose my license on the way

                          • Made a 6.7% ABV hydromel (mead), most of it's aging in secondary but some is aging in two small barrels: one is 1 liter, the other is 2 liters. Both previously aged American Spirit Whiskey's White Dog, 100% malted rye (previously clear) liquor. Daily tastings are required.
                          • Started a 4.6 gallon waterless blueberry mead, targeting 16% ABV, and I plan to backsweeten it. It'll likely take 6 months before it's ready. This one will be called Bluegrass Blueberry (more on naming below).
                          • bottled and labeled my 2nd/3rd meads! My home meadery name is Up the Neck Meadery (banjo reference), and the names of the meads are Orange Blossom Special (old time banjo/fiddle tune) and Blackberry Blossom (old time fiddle tune)

                            This sounds much more fun than installing insulation and ceiling panels in my shop!

                            I do fully intend to buy or build a still after I retire and start making moonshine!
