    Just recharging the batteries on this one. I pretty much hate summer, but I've been forcing myself out at least once for the past few years.

    Already pinkish to start. My yellow is so faded it's almost white.

    This stuff will look like the "once-red" 1990 Geo Tracker that the guy never once waxed and always parked outside.

    The fans range from about $30-80 or so. I went with a cheap $32 version and it works great. Just moving the heat around a little makes a big difference. Also nice for those who like white noise.
