Haha!! I understand your annoyance with PA bugs...I live in a more rural area near Harrisburg, and the car front and side mirrors have numerous bugs on it. I drove to Northern MD today to play some golf with a fellow forums member, and the side mirrors look horrible. And to make it worse, I just washed the car yesterday

LOL! Haha, yeah, we seem to be bug central here in PA, don't know why! I haven't gotten around to washing my car for 2 weeks and it's just starting to show it, that's the nice thing about my car, it doesn't show dirt for a while, but I'll be washing it this weekend. It has a little bird crap and some bugs on it. UGHH!!

That's one thing I hate about summertime in the midwest...lots of fucking bugs. It's useless sometimes to wash the front of your car, because one trip down the highway will leave it looking like shit again. And many times these little buggers (haha) are hard as hell to scrub off. I wish there was something you could put on your paint (besides 3M, obviously) that would make it a lot easier to just spray the bugs off. Oh well.

well besides deer, i saw 2 dead dogs, i wanted to cry, i hate seeing animal cruelty especially to dogs, cats i don't mind too much but i dogs i hate to see them get hurt. Also, i almost got into a bad accident i was coming out of a toll booth, and sped up to about 80 and there was a turn but i didn't think it was that sharp, so i went to turn and it was a complete turnaround, i drifted from the left lane to the middle lane and my nose was facing the wall, my dad was screaming at me, and i'm trying to stop the car. All of a sudden, the brakes kick in and the car was fine, silence for 10 mins, then i belt out, that was some crazy ass turn, huh? My Father ripped me a new one, lol
