    Post you trip pictures and videos here
    Hey gang, here are a few pictures and videos of my latest trip, I went to Irazu volcano, I stopped on the way back from the volcano at an abandoned cholera hospital from the late 30's, the place is creepy, some people say it is haunted!
     
    Irazu volcano:
    This is right at the side of the volcano's crater
    Here you can see where the hot ashes burned the soil on a recent eruption
    Cholera Hospital (Sanatorio Duran):








    Stand up toilet, people with cholera had to use it a lot!, I guess it was easier to stand up rather than sitting after dozens of trips to the bathroom, eww.

    If pickup where bad you wouldn't get spark, looks to me like it needs a valve lash adjustment, or that the timing chain is off a tooth or two.

    You better cancel your order or file a claim with PayPal, I believe they are out of business but still taking people's money, something about the owner being away and one of the employees playing dirty with the customers.

    Yep, it is basically a Linux computer, pretty much all Linux software works on it, it also has IO pins that you can program to control external hardware, like switches, electronic motors, modules, sensors, and all kinds of things; the ON/Off switch is connected to those pins, it starts and shutdown the computer gracefully.

    Filtering is legal here below 25km/h, lane splitting isn't, but since traffic police is absent and don't give a flying f*ck even if they see an offender, it is anarchy on the streets.

    Lil' truck got pimped!!
    Hey guys, since the little truck was missing the radio i decided to do something about it, it all started with a plan to install a little amplifier to connect the phone, but I got a little too creative and installed a whole computer system on the thing, now I have a fully functional computer with Internet access (tethering from the phone), GPS navigation, Spotify, Netflix, ODBII reader, and dash cam. Next project will be hands free phone on the car speakers, alarm system,GPS tracker, and a reverse camera.

    I used a Raspberry Pi 3 as platform, the switch next to the aplifier is the Pi's ON/OFF switch.

    Close calls on 2 wheels
    Hey gang, anyone here using a helmet cam?, if so, post your close calls here.
    Being a 2 wheels road user in Costa Rica, the world's capital of bad drivers and stupid pedestrians, close calls are plenty and frequent, here is an example of a single day of riding:
