Took Kai for his first ride down the driveway. He can't talk, but can sure scream. He made me take him 3 more times and then we had to pry him away from the car LOL



Sean, what's the booster seat you had in your car?

So cool! :icon_smile:

It is a Volvo booster seat. They pop up on Craigslist from time to time, or can be found through some Volvo dealers . Be careful with the dealers, as they sometimes advertise the "booster" alone without including the similarly priced "booster backrest", so their actual price for the whole thing ends up being double.

No, I don't. I got lucky (after looking for 6 months) and found mine on CL for twenty five bucks out of Tiburon. Marin county has gotta have almost as many Volvos as Sweden.

New seats goes for $200. I am on CL regularly looking for used ones.

Sean:

Total number of cars in Sweden: 4,401,352 (2012)
Breakdown of top registration based on brand:
Volvo: 1 000 633
Volkswagen: 458 873
Saab: 323 046
Toyota: 286 683
Ford: 270 414
Audi: 218 517
Renault: 179 306
Opel: 170 692
Peugeot: 166 033
BMW: 162 702


23% of the cars on Swedish roads are Volvos. Nobody, and I mean nobody, beats Sweden when it comes to Volvo fetishism.

I'll take that challenge.
Counting the vehicles in our driveway (i.e. not including those in the garage), we are at 66.67% Volvos at our house!

Our embassy in Washington has been notified. Expect your Swedish passport to arrive in the mail within 5-10 business day.

Všlkommen.

Just a quick question, Morgan.

How much money have you spent on bikes during the last 24 months?

He's got it bad Magnus. It's no different than upgradeitis.

You know better than that Magnus, one should never add up how much they spent on toys


All I know is that when I die, I hope my wife doesn't sell them for how much I told her I paid for them :icon_highly_amused:

You mean I'm not the only one with this problem?

I look at all of the lotions and potions and notions in the shower, in the medicine cabinet, under the vanity... most women have dozens of containers of this stuff in various places around the house - usually in the bathroom.

On the rare occasions I have found myself in a department store cosmetics section or a place like Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I have always been astounded by the disproportionately big price tags on those tiny bottles of stuff.
So I do the math, factoring in the estimated life span of those little containers that are used daily, and derive a rough estimate of monthly or annual expenditure on these types of things. Gee, suddenly that mapping session or Raceco silencer or carbon fiber bicycle frame (all of which last considerably longer than a 1.5 ounce bottle of "daily finishing scrub" or whatever, at God-knows-how-much per bottle!) or whatever upgrade-itis treatment doesn't seem so expensive after all.

That's odd. She said the same thing about all the jugs of dangerous, volatile organic compounds out in the garage.

It's all for a good cause my friend, all for a good cause.

Vive le difference!

I shall present this brilliant argument to my wife, which surely will give her insight into the errors of her reasoning and pave the way for unlimited Caterham expenditures.

Either that or I'll end up in the ICU, as per usual.

Fortunately I haven't succumbed to upgraditis since I decided on the car I bought because it had all the bits I would have added anyway, but the bicycle thing is costing me. Of course that is all part of the fun :icon_highly_amused:
