Florida Seas

The open sea is amazing out here. Lots of fish to catch, friendly sailors, and cheap beer. Well, all fun and games till your best friend start throwing up because he is seasick. RIP his stomach.

If you ever decide to travel down to South Beach, Florida, rent a boat (private preferably) and go fishing with family or a couple of your friends – It’s a great experience! Be sure to fish in the morning time. This is a great time for King Mackerals, Barracuda, Mahi (occasionally), etc, come out and bite. Since the boat is private, there is no concern for space to sit, rest, or fish. Best part, we got to bring our dog along for the ride! Once you make it back to the docks, you can filet and debone your fish for no cost. All together, for just one boat, private, was around $500 before tax. You’re looking into about 4 -5 hours of solid fishing!

For our trip, we caught about 6 fish. 5 King Mackerals and 1 Bonito. 


The King Mackerals we kept, but we decided to give the Bonito to the Captain so he can use it for future bait. For any beginners, give up your Bonitos. They are not good to eat. They are mainly used for bait. No worries, the 5 King Mackerals we caught can feed our whole family for two nights. That’s 16 people and a dog!

All in all, it was quite the experience and a great workout. We learned so much from the captain, and he is a Maryland man! What are the odds? We cooked these beauties and our dog even had his own plate. He left no scraps. Good dog.

Scooters

Having a great time with these 50cc scooters! For those of you that aren’t familiar to the cc measurement – it isn’t that fast of a scooter. However, it is very fun to ride! 

6 of us riding down to Fort Lauderdale and the view is amazing! I wish I stopped by a took a picture but we were on the move.

Best part, all 6 scooters costed less than $200 for the whole day! Groupon is GOAT.

As I lay here, FaceTiming the love of my life – I am missing home. And the fact that I have car parts waiting for me to install once I get back. Tomorrow will be a better day – my older brother’s is growing a year older and that means lots of food and fun! I guess I will say it early, but…. happy birthday big bro!

Family reunion

We made it! It’s not as sunny as we thought it would be. It’s raining. It’s pouring. More or less, there are old men snoring.

The beach house is wonderful, because we are near the shore and say hi to the people to boat down the strip. The best part to this vacation, is that our labradoodle is getting so much attention from tourists and locals. He loves it so much! Crazy enough, he has been spoiled a lot – with a $12 meal as the record so far. But, we love him. He’s family and we all eat good.

Today is a simple day – we travel down to south beach to have lunch with the whole family and take a boat tour of the city. The only thing that can top today, is if Bernice from South Beach Tow comes and we get her autograph!

RPMs staggering from 1k down to 400

I hate this. Half the time I feel like it’s gonna stall out from me. Don’t buy an FR-S, ladies and gentleman. (Is it an 86 now?…yeah whatever, i’m kidding.)

Maybe this baby needs a tune. I’ve heard about this ridiculous open tablet that can flash the ECU of the car to help with this issue – maybe keep it at a solid 1k. But for $499? You can kiss my sweet ass before I decide to buy that. Looks like I’ve got a lot to research to figure out a cheaper way of tuning my car.

Besides that, I just recently purchased the Fumoto Oil Drain Valve, which I will install very soon because my oil change frequency is very close to car washes, and a secret new part will be coming shortly after!

I’m excited how things are slowly growing for this car and I’m happy to have a group of friends who have a strong passion for cars. Without their help, installations would take long, YouTube would be my only friend, and I’ll magically screw up and turn my car into a piece o’ shit. Luckily that isn’t the case.

Thank you for those who are currently following my build! For those who are slowly coming in, I also appreciate your time and I hope to show you my wonderful work of art! 

Maki Ramen 

This is the first time I have eaten ramen, besides out of a styrofoam cup. It looked very close to what you would see in Naruto. Especially those Narutomaki, those fancy pink and white swirl pads,  it’s fish paste that takes pretty good.

A whole bowl of soup, ramen, mushrooms, half a boiled egg, bulgogi, and a strip of seaweed wrap. One must be crazy to not eat this delicacy.

Maki is quite small, the size of a boba shop, but with all the amazing flavors. This might be our designated ramen shop (I’m lying. I’m always willing to try other places).

If you are in the area, give it a try!

Lardarius Webb Charity Softball Game

Football players playing softball. Quite the show, but a very fun time indeed! The charity helps support family’s with low income/homeless and help with food, finding shelter, paying bills, etc.

It’s good to give. 

Thank you Baltimore Ravens for the awesome game and I hope the best for this upcoming season! All in all, I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Vacation time

Good Lordy, the moment is coming near. A week of no stress, a loud family, lots of food, and good times. 

Come to think of it, I haven’t seen my whole family in a while. I’m sure I’ll be playing 21 questions with them all vacation. Where do you work now? Do you have a girlfriend? How is she? When are you going to get married so we can go to a wedding?

People say that these type of questions annoy them… to the point where they have memes specifically for these questions! I like it when I am asked about my life. It gives the satisfaction of knowing that my family cares about what’s going on in my life.

Family. Don’t take them for granted. Gotta love em.

Coilovers are Installed

FINALLY. It brings me with great pleasure to let everyone know that the Coilovers are on! 

To set the tone of this story, I am truly appreciative of my purchase and install. The comfort of driving has changed drastically for me and expect it to get much better as I adjust it down the road. Thank you, Alex from coilovers360, for all your help with getting me a good deal and very quick shipping.

For those who plan to install coilovers in the nearby future, plan for at least 5 hours of work, grab a couple of buddies to help, a 12 pack, and leave the significant other home. For my first time installing these bad boys, the first one was a huge pain. And the pain was real. I started on the front-passenger side coil and worked my way back.

Figuring out how to remove the end-link nut (because what’s modification without a little rusted nut fun), removing the [poorly engineered] brake clips, positioning the top-hat correctly (messed up twice, third time was the charm), and bolting the end-link back on. It was a nightmare

Luckily, my friend Rudy brought an impact gun from his shop to help us with the other three sides. 

BUT This is just the beginning.



Now that all of the coils are on, I will have to continue driving around this whole week until they settle. Then, I go back to readjusting for [my] perfect riding comfort.

Special thanks to Nic, Rudy, Andy, Steven, Nikka, and Scott for the help.
