First of all, how do I determine what the IRS would consider a fair value for the deduction. Second, like you said, even if they want to check and I know it's fair I don't want the hassle.

The trouble with that is that as of today the car is running great with no problems but tomorrow something expensive could break with a car this old. If it does even though I had no clue whomever ended up with the car would no doubt harbor bad feelings towards me.

Hmmm, you're not in this pic; were you taking the shot??)
so how did you get kemo to take off that dreaded mask ...and did not his sidekick come ??

O.K. let me try again.

First of all he can not look up your address in your phone book if all he has is your license plate number.

Now back to what I explained poorly in my last message. Although this forum clearly attracts a great group of folks there is always the possibility that there is a bad apple or two out there.

You mention your plans to go out of town for a week here, so we're not all worried "what the heck happened to colorider?!" . One of those bad apples remembers that a picture of your Pilot with license plate showiing was posted a while back and searches for it. He happens to have access to Motor Vehicle records somehow, looks up your address, and discovers that he lives 30 miles from where you do. Knowing that no one will be home, while you're gone he goes to your house and breaks in.

Not a real likely scenario and not trying to scare you but a reasonable amount of caution is prudent on the internet.

The guy who sees your license plate while you are driving down the street has no way of knowing you are going to be out of town.

While kemo left his mask home, he did come wearing a very attractive green Honda Pilot cap!!! Kemo in fact had hoped to bring along his sidekick (of sorts)--his 2-year-old son--but, unfortunately, he was under the weather and had to stay home.

As for my cat---he doesn't travel very well!!!!

How do I know the difference?

I guess some states are better than others checking out your story/paperwork but that's of little comfort while you're sweating out criminal charges or fines.
Thanks for the warning! I never would have consdered that!

aerostar45 also has everyone beat in terms of mileage: over 20K, I believe... I can't remember who had the fewest...
Well, actually my mileage is just under 20k. It is 19535 right now!

Wow - yeah, now I'm really worried!!! Gosh - I don't think I'll even post here anymore!!!

I'll also quit posting to my motorcycle list where close to 3,000 people know my name and where I live.

I better quit going to work too - people there know me and sure know when I go on vacation. I'm going to close all my window shades too. Use only the REAL low wattage light bulbs so no one will be able to see any shadows when we move about the house.

HELLO? Reality check!!!!

Yes, I lock my doors at night - but then I also know that just about any lock out there is only to keep the honest people honest. I'm pretty darn sure (and perhaps FLPilot can help me out here) that the majority of home break-ins are from the person down the street. Usually someone you know. Not from the "bad apple" you refer to that is stalking me on the internet.

YMMV

BTW, I'd rather be talking about Pilots than bad apples.

Motorcycle Man!

Are you okay?
I think they're trying to keep us safe We love you!
I really think all that browse here are great people, and we really have nothing to worry about, but yikes- you just never know.

I visited your photo gallery today, excellent snowpilot photos. Is this your gorgeous home? Not that I plan to break in, just thought it was a beautiful place. I too, did wonder what the heck the license plates were blurred for. Not exactly worried myself, but very considerate of them to do it anyhow.
I hope you had a great father's day after your wife returned.
We launched estes rockets, visited my (pocketless! )Dad at his Harley shop, and bbq'ed some yoshida burgers It was a good day.

Pictures I took #1

Interesting enough, the licence plate in the picture are all glared out by themselves without any help.

Klowry was trying to shut the door as soon as possible when she got in her Sagebrush. It was pouring!

Hey - thanks!!! Probably the picture you are referring to is at my wife's nephew's cabin up in the Black Hills. We are also going up over the 4th and take our bikes (pedal) for some riding.


After the Mrs got home we went out for lunch and then took a drive up to Estes Park with the top down on her convertible! It was great!!

Now - back to work tomorrow!!!

Picture I took #3

I have two more pictures waiting Kemo's touch before I can post it. However, my Taffeta White finally made its way into the garage, which was another thing to celebrate that day. Here is the picture. Man, is my garage small!
