I just wore them when driving. I'd leave them on the console or in the glove box so they were always handy. (I mean that's what a glove box is for, eh!)
Photos are of me before and after my test drive in the Inazuma I owned for three days.
Inazuma? - a motorcycle?

Owned for 3 days?

What's the - rest of the story?

Held up well so far.
THAT must have been waaaaaaay back in the day - they got heaters (that work) in cars these days -

So, I wound up with a Chrysler Pacifica PIH as a rental, it's surprisingly not bad. Comfortable, easy to drive, has enough power to not feel super slow, and it even entertains me on the drive with a neat charge meter for energy harvesting/expenditure. I feel like there's a catch, like somewhere you have to worry about both ev and ice maintenance at the same time, but otherwise I might actually like it. Is this what getting old feels like?

Haven’t been into my old job to do side work in 10 days and how quickly it is a reminder why I left. I spent the first hour sending emails to straighten stuff out hopefully done in 4 more weeks for good.
