This means that I can dress as I normally do and high step it real fast across the street to the mall.
Kyle, it can be dang cold just walking through the hallways of the airport. Reconsider the "extra layer". At least a cheap fleese from target under your light coat and a knit hat will go a long way. Gloves are nice too. Water proof shoes/boots - cold wet feet are a bummer.

Now me, I'd be showing up with my snow shoes looking forward to a good time.

Greased the starter. Pretty easy job, relatively speaking, for a v-drive.

Don't show Kyle the windchill number - he'll cancel his flight.

Windchill is over-rated.

I guess I will just go to my meeting and then head to the Cabaret. I am sure that the windchill and temperature in there will be a lot warmer. If not the cold drinks and wild women will distract the cold misery.

Ran a compression test on the MCX. I know it should be done after warming the engine but I have it mostly winterized and did not want to drag it out and have to repeat the winterization. I'll repeat the compression test after de-winterization. Below are the results. Any thoughts on the numbers even given that I did not warm up the engine before hand. The spark plugs dont' show any signs of issues so I'm thinking it's looking good.

Those #s are good. I wouldn't bother doing it again unless you're having problems you need to diagnose.

No problems. Just wanted some numbers written down in my log so I know what good was...

Thanks
