New Garage for my Defender

I sold my house a couple of weeks ago, so I had to put my Defender's projects on hold... I just bought this new garage for my Defender and bachelor pad for myself...

Yep, I moved from Taylors to the Cherrydale area of Greenville... I'm about a mile from the city now... this was a perfect house... it's on the small side, but it's less to heat/cool... house was built in '54, but the garage is practically brand new... a big step up from the basement garage I had at the last house. Is it bad when you buy a house based on it's garage?

Nope that is just keeping your priorities straight.

That's not out of the works yet... I may fly there in the spring and test the waters...

I'm buying this house because it would cost me twice as much (or more) to rent something similar... I'll just rent this one out if it comes down to it...

Let me know if/when you come West.

It's about 1,200 SF... there's a small loft in the garage too... great house... needs some updating eventually, but what doesn't...

Yeah, I'm definitely coming West very soon...

Dan, contracts on the great house. As I mentioned on the phone a few weeks back, I miss my days in Greenville and could see myself circling back one day.

Thanks Down_Shift! Yep, I got rid of some drama in my life, and it's been much easier for me since... I'm still contemplating getting away for a while, but Greenville will always be "home"...

Today I checked out SALAE25476A405426 that passed through your dealership between 6/29/09 (purchased at a FL auction) until 7/9/09 (sold to LR of Asheville). Perhaps you took a cut of the action back then.

I was designing and testing asphalt back in 2009... I've only been selling Rovers since last October...

Can you tell me why we can put a man on the moon, but can't make a road last more than a year or two? :-)

Yep, they skimp on the asphalt cement and anti-stripping agents... the pave over horrible subgrade... overlay old broken/alligatored asphalt with new asphalt and it reflects through after a year or two...

Hitting potholes with a Defender isn't fun!

Job security.

Or they don't have the time to put in a proper base.

There is no money is the cutting edge stuff. You show you can do it once. Then you collect revenue on a yearly (or better) basis. Putting the second man on the moon would probably have coated twice as much [at -that- time]....

The new concrete roads are so much better. I do hate having to hear the joints that are spaced every 50-100 feet...

There's so much that can go wrong with asphalt... low temperatures... bad roller patterns... segregation... there's actually a lot of testing and inspection that goes along with asphalt and concrete paving, so I don't understand why there are so many issues with it.
