On my Element, I run it for 3 minutes (I do 5) in N (after moving the stick through all the "Ds"), then shut her off to ACC 1. Then do the same thing every morning and every 8 hours.

No batt disconnects, or fuses to worry about.
Start engine - Brake and move shift through all positions - Shift to D and hold 5 seconds - then to N. - Let engine run for 3 minutes - then off. Leave ignition switch in Accessory I - make sure steering wheel does not lock. If towed for more than 8 hours repeat process - and remove 7.5 A radio fuse. Reinstall fuse before starting.

Here's a few more pics in daylight..

We went back forth on what - but in the end the Honda won us over. We didn't get many pics cause it was getting late - but I did catch the salesman putting the temp plate on.

She'll look nice behind Bonita Bounder!

Simply a sweet looking toad. Good choice. However, did you color match it to the Bounder?? LOL Roll 'em easy.

Coordinated with the black swoosh I would say - but not exact match...

Gonna have to tell Bob that one.... Thank you. He took the air filter cover off... moved the choke around a bit, etc. etc. tried again and said... "nope, it's going to need to go to the shop, I don't know how to fix it." so we loaded it into the back of the truck and took it in. Maybe he can go up there and try that one and I won't need to wait a week and a half for it.....( this is their very busy season...)

And oh man, does that stuff give you a giant headache !! Sort of creeps up on you like a sledge hammer. I always have a good supply of brake cleaner to "dry clean" grease from the bus engine. Kills the grease, melts it off, and the bare surface is clean enough to hold paint. This, of course, is an outdoors job plus I use a big shop fan to blow away the fumes. Nasty stuff !!

What kind of tree would you be?

When my dad passed away my daughter and I bought a tree and planted it in his honor. Since I no longer own real estate, we planted it at a friend's place in Oklahoma.

Now I'm trying to find a tree to plant in Mike's honor here in southern Washington. I'm going to have to go to one of those big nurseries that have a large selection of trees.

I could use your help on this. Nothing comes to mind, but I'm not really familiar with trees that grow here. This is USDA growing zone 6b. I think it needs to be something quirky. I just don't see an oak tree symbolizing Mike.

If I was planting in Phoenix I'd choose a Saguro cactus for sure. Anyone have any suggestions?w

Snow crab would be nice. It blooms every spring, just like he came back into bloom for a while this spring.

Great idea, Barb!

Ginkgo is a bit quirky; just don't get a female...stinky fruit not even Mike would like. There's a plant called something like Harry Lauder's Walking Stick ... definitely quirky: interesting twisty stems, but I think they also actually work for walking sticks. That one may be more of a shrub, but there is also the twisted willow, which looks similar and is a tree.

I'll wait for something like inspiration to strike, but y'all are more likely than I to come up with the perfect answer. I'm looking forward to your thoughts.

Cheers!
Sue
