So it turns out I *DO* have a life...

No work on the house this weekend. Those of you who know me personally know what a car nut I am (here's a pic of my scooby):


So this weekend I did a Monte Carlo Road Rally -- my second one. This is one of the most fun things you can do in a vehicle -- while it's moving. :) Basically, it's like a big treasure / scavenger hunt with precision timing. You are given clues about where you need to go and told what time you need to be there...but it's your job to figure out exactly where you're going and how you're going to get there. It's very competitive and mentally straining so most teams have a driver and a navigator. Out of 25 or so cars in the beginner class I think my driver and I did pretty well:


These events are fun and relatively inexpensive and well-organized (this is really good if you're anal retentive like me). If you want more info: click here.

Gah. I can't belive I read your whole blog, and my first question is car-related. What material did you use to cover the door panels? I've got a 2003 Echo that I'm customizing, and I HATE the fabric on the door panels. I'd like to cover them with something else, but my door panels are contoured, and I'm not sure what kind of fabric to use and how to get it to adhere to the contours. Help!

Cool house, BTW. I found your blog through the Lotta Livin' site. I have serious MCM house envy. ;P
