I'm proud of my people @thomsonmeeks and @kathryn_meeks hammering out the reps @crossfitasheville. That's the same weight on their respective bars, btw. 💪

Turn up the volume for this one!  This is @hypercade's homeschool auto shop project making a fine racket.  It didn't run when he bought it and today it does!  He upgraded the charging system, replaced the ignition, swapped the battery with a capacitor (kick start only now), gutted the electrical system - removed, upgraded or rewired every electrical component.  That's a new seat, new bars, new lights, new grips, brake levers and exhaust.  He made hundreds of choices and decisions (cosmetic, mechanical, budgetary) many of which were beyond his experience but he fought his way to success over and over again.  There's a bit more to do which does not include adding mufflers, oddly enough.  He's part of our future, America, we are going to be fine.

These zippy bags seem to like to team up.  I get that.
