One Year Exploring the USA April 2022-2023 ~61k Miles
Hello,I had posted earlier about my trip on the WA State BDR. After that adventure I ended up staying on the road, without any real plans, for roughly another year. For those of you who I have already met here in the community - it was a true pleasure chatting.:)
Anyhoots, I thought I would share some of the highlights of the trip, photos, and how my 2015 Toyota Tacoma and Overlanding teardrop did in a combination of Overlanding, Stealth, and Camping scenarios.....roughly on a path of Live Music, National Parks, good Vegan food, and connecting with new and old friends.
Oregon Desert
I am not exactly sure how to share the depth of my trip with the community here, so I though a combination of my setup, stats, gear that served well and didn't, some personal takeaways (there are no armature philosophers), and some other facts/favorites. If this sparks up some conversation, Ill do my utmost to answer any questions.
Relevant Portions of my rig setup:
2015 Tacoma Limited: ~193,000 ODO (Bought new)- Old Man Emu Nitro Sport Suspension w/3" lift and heavy duty leaf spring additions- Full body armoSnorkel/roof racks- Roam Adventure roof boxes- Two 5G Jerry Cans (used ~8x)- Starlink RV WiFi (legit)- 1Kw and 200Mw Yeti Power Banks w/solar- Heavy duty dog barrier (Panda Safety)- 10k Lb Warn wench (used ~12 times)- Electric Chainsaw (used ~5x), Full Toolkit- Planer mobile kerosene heater (Used frequently)- Bumper Stuff
2015 TrailersNW Ambush Trailer: ~100kODO- 2" sorta-heavy duty steel frame (reinforced after BDR)- Matching KO2's - carry only one spare- Timeberland Axeless Suspension w/4" drop- Custom Aluminum Build/Marine grade battery- RhinoRack Batwing 270' w/full panels- Tepui Heavy Duty four season rooftop tent- Coleman propone stove- Dometic 45L FreezeFridge Combo- Couch/Matress- Baltic Birch stain-resistant interiocabinets- Geyeuser Portable Shower
My trusty travel companion, Panda, and I set a rough course from Astoria, OR to Virginia Beach, VA.
Highlights included:
States Visited: 28 + MexicoCities/Placed Visited: 236National Parks: 13Total Miles: ~61kTotal elevation gain/loss 1.5M Feet

Gear Fails:- Truck window broke into 3 times. The tint from last break in never settled in the cold weather and ended up peeling in the 4th window.- Timberland wheel bearing. I didn't grease per schedule and it caught fire on the freeway. It was quickly put out and I was able to creep ~20mph to a hotel to order a new bearing assembly.
Personal Fails:- Lost my wallet and ID in epic Northern CA snowstorm. I had my passport and my banks sent new cards ahead to my new location. I had some emergency money in the armrest safe.- Laundry was a challenge on the road. I now carry 5x the same of everything. Shirt, socks, pants- same.
Some of my personal lessons learned:
  1. People everywhere seem super cool- I met hundreds of new friends. The polarization of people via the media, to me, is absolutely shocking. I am constantly reminded of the saying, "Hate doesn't move armies, devotion move armies"
  2. You NEVER know who can shred on an instrument. It's really a magical thing....a persons relationship with their instrument. I tried to find live music in every town I went to, and it was a pleasure to watch the post-covid music scene thaw . I practiced almost every day on the road, and people seemingly are always helpful to teach.
  3. Do not eat 3lb of pistachios in a 24hr period.
  4. The steath/overlanding out-of-the-way areas to camp are the absolute best way to go, not only from a budget perspective. The people you meet in these areas, whether locals or travelers, seem to have a more authentic-ness about them.....less in a rush.....more relaxed....easier to strike a convo with.
  5. I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to take this trip, in a solo manner, with a senior dog. It truly has changed my perspective on this country, people, business, finance, religion, and politics. My life philosophy framework comes from am emerging thinking called Sentientism, through which two questions about everything are asked: 1) What's Real and 2) What matters. Through these lenses on this trip I have determined: 1) Anything with living energy I am willing to call God. 2) Self-Discipline = Self-Love. 3) Nobody is greater than me, nobody is lesser than me.
Anyhoots - again, thought I would post my adventure and some of the relevant highlights.:)

Spider living in my bathroom
Found in El Paso, TX. This lil guy/gal has been living in my bathroom’s skylight for a couple weeks now. I managed to get the clearest photo of a spider I’ve ever taken. (Canon). Luckily this spider was hanging upside down so I hope the markings are identifiable. This photo has not been altered, only cropped to get the full view.

2023.05.21 16:59 Cyndercrys [FO4] Game Won't Load Past ENB Screen

Title says it all. My game won't load past the screen with all the ENB information on it.
I haven't added any new mods lately and the one mod I updated I've since uninstalled since I thought that was the problem. I've verified files with Steam, and just yesterday redownloaded ALL my mods and reinstalled them. Problem persists.
I was playing just fine until a few days ago when this issue mysteriously appeared. I use Vortex and BethINI.
If anyone has insight, that'd be great. I'm truly at a loss here.
Posting my load order below but be warned, it's fucking long:

2023.05.19 14:38 EfoDom I created a 16 page collection of UFO sightings from an amateur astronomy forum

I created this collection of comments 2 years ago but I haven't posted it to this sub yet. I keep coming back to it from time to time. As an amateur astronomer myself it was a real eye opener at the time to see so many accounts from different amateur astronomers. A lot of these have similarities which was pretty incredible to see after collecting the comments. There are a lot of similarities with sightings of members of this subreddit as well.
There are definitely more comments like this describing UFO sightings and I might update it in the future. I'm a sceptic but for me personally these comments are one of the most compelling things I've ever seen. It was the reason why I decided to collect them. I have no reason to believe that all of these people just made it up.
Original post: April 30, 2021
I've recently been reading a lot of threads on forums where amateur astronomers describe their UFO sightings. Some of these were very interesting so I thought I'd share these with you. Keep in mind these are people that in some cases have spent their entire lives looking at the sky and can distinguish between different types of phenomena and objects but couldn't figure out what these objects were.
I created a 16 page pdf file about sightings from members of Cloudy Nights, an amateur astronomy forum. Please note the OPs aren't aware of this but their comments can be easily found by anyone who wishes to do so. I picked a few interesting ones to post here. I personally enjoy reading about sightings more than I do just seeing (in most cases) blurry photos that aren't simply as compelling to me. These threads usually started by someone asking whether anyone has seen a UFO. Please let me know what you think.

I live a few miles from Billy Mitchell Field in Milwaukee. Six years ago I was outside on my deck at around midnight looking up, searching for my next target. A black triangle flew over head, completely silent, at a fair rate of speed. It was low. There is is light pollution in my area with considerable sky glow on most nights. The black triangle stood out from the sky glow. It was an eerie experience. I assume it was some type of military craft. But something I never forgot.
Yes , totally dark and silent , 'V' shaped travelling east to west blocking out the milkyway's stars as it moved , took probably 3 minutes to cross the whole sky , gave me the heeby-jeebies .
Looked about 1/2 a degree across in relationship to the stars behind it ..
Broad day lite, less than 500yds away about the size of a school bus, all silver with no wings, rotors, no markings or even rivets or panel lines and most of all, no sound! My crew and I watched it maneuver up and over a ridge for about 1/2 mile. Sorry, but anyone who thinks they are not here is just fooling themselves...
I am not prepared to say that I saw a U.F.O. I just don't know what it was. One night I was at work and I saw something very bright and big out of the corner of my eye, it seemed to be hovering right above me. When I looked up it was a bright green orb, that seemed to be floating for and instant. After a few seconds, it just took off at a very high speed and was out of sight within seconds. Afterwords there were reports of meteors, but it certainly didn't look or move like a meteor to me.
Regarding have I seen a UFO, yeah , I have. A few years ago when one of the ,Hale-bop maybe,great comets was off ot the north west I was out with a pair of 10 x 50 binoculars chicking it out.
All of a sudden a large dark object ,with no running lights or sound went through my field of had a v shape. I spun around and found it again and followed it completely across the sky till it went behind some trees and buildings.
What was it, is any bodys guess.Do I think it was piloted by aliens, I dunno.
My sighting was back in 1996, and came only a few months after the military airbase was closed-down and put in moth-balls. I was outside observing with a pair of 8x30 binoculars on clear winter's evening, when low-down to my north I observed a triangular formation of lights. I continued to observe the object/s only to very quickly realise that it was going to pass extremely close to me.
As it approached I could see that it was a single Black triangular object that had a series (around 8-10) of soft illuminated lights running along each edge. There were no other forms of lights on this craft.
As it encountered the boundary of the town the underside became illuminated by the stray light- pollution that was shining upwards. The underside was not a shiny black surface but rather had a mat appearance.
I could not see any protrusions i.e. landing gear etc. It appeared as a flat bottom. As it went overhead I could see that the lights running down the edge were in-fact ports or openings in the edge of the wing, out of these ports came a soft type of light, it was not harsh or over bright.
It was totally silent, as it moved away to my south I followed it with the binoculars and got a very good look. It appeared to have two outer wings that were bent over in a curve. Again absolutely no engine noise.
Late '70s, wife and I are at the beach late at night, enjoying the coolish breeze and the sounds of the surf. Our "activity" was interrupted by "something"... it was LARGE, and flying low and slow, practically soundless, dark, but with what appeared to be lit portholes around its perimeter. It was bowl shaped, wingless. It went directly over us. I did not know what it was, but I was pretty sure what it wasn't.
This was near a USAF base. USAF craft were a regular sight and I knew many of the planes flown out of there. This thing matched nothing I was familiar with, and it was not a blimp, as I knew and could identify those as well. It was soon gone, disappearing over the Gulf, but in an unusual way... it did not break the horizon, but instead seemed to drop vertically into the water and was gone.
About 25 years ago, I was living in rural Kansas, way out miles of dirt roads where it was DARK. I had a 16" Orion telescope that my son and I frequently hauled out in to the back yard for an evening's viewing. On this particular evening, I swung the Dob over to Saturn, as I have never been able to resist a look at that jewel of the heavens. On this evening, the seeing was exceptional and as a result, I was using close to 300X with near razor sharp views.
To my amazement, I saw a moon. It was above and traveling parallel to the rings. I hit the stopwatch and timed the rest of its transit, including the time it took for the 'moon' to disappear behind the planet. Looking at the time, I did some quick mental arithmetic and figured out what its orbital period should be +/- , and waited for it to re-appear on the other side of Saturn. While waiting, it dawned on me that it was impossible for a moon to have an orbital plane that was only about 1/3 of a planet diameter from the pole and did not pass through the physical center of the planet. I also re-visited my earlier calculations, only to discover that the speed of this 'moon' had to be insanely high to have made the transit in the time I had measured.
An hour after I had calculated the 'moon' should re-appear, I still had not seen it and finally gave up waiting.
This thing was huge. It was big enough to be visually round, like a sphere.
Fortunately, I had a sketch and my notes, so I took them to work with me the next day to share them with a couple of my friends. This turned out to be a most excellent decision, as three days later, one of them brought in an article they had found where some professional observatories had reported detecting an object in the vicinity of Saturn the same night and at the same time as my observation.
Did I mention that I have been an aerospace engineer for over 40 years?
That's my best and nearly my only story and having it validated by a third party only sweetens things. I do not know what it was and wouldn't care to speculate. It was absolutely huge. It was FAST. It was bright. Its trajectory was not that of an orbiting body. That's the best I can do.

Never seen anything at night but did see something interesting during the day 10 or 12 years ago. Was driving east on I-10 between El Paso and Fort Stockton and watched an object to the east way off in the distance dancing around above some hills at a fairly high altitude. I assumed it was sunlight glancing off something, as all I could see while driving was tiny light speck. After 20 minutes of watching through the windshield I was startled by a couple of sonic booms as 3 fighter jets flew overhead towards the object. I pulled over and got out my binoculars but could only see the jets making wild manuevers when they reached whatever it was. The object seemed to dart in various directions much faster than the fighters, then went straight up and dissappeared. The fighters continued to circle the area for several minutes than flew back west over me. No idea what it was, but was something for the airforce to scramble fighters for.
Also it was crisp and cold, deep blue sky. The fighters were leaving contrails, the object was not. Maybe it was some sort of training exercise, or maybe not. Was all very strange to me.
It's unfortunate that people's bravery, honesty and objectivity with this subject are often met with ridicule and dismissal.
Ten years ago, I took a friend observing at the dark, western end of a residential development south of Phoenix. While enjoying the views of a pair of planets setting in the west, we were startled to see three amber colored orbs (not point sources of light) that appeared to be connected to a common structure. The lights were stationary relative to each other, and all three were motionless just above my line of sight to a distant mountain ridge. Each light flashed one at a time in a cyclic sequence 3X before turning off. I know estimating distances in a dark sky is challenging, but the span of these lights was clearly enormous. My friend was so shaken he insisted we leave. Interestingly, there was an uncorroborated report from someone 100 miles away in Tucson seeing a "immense, massive triangle" just 30 minutes prior to our sighting. I worked with missiles in the military. I've seen the U-2 and SR-71 in flight, a myriad of aircraft foreign and domestic, and many weapons systems in action during the first Gulf War. I'm at a loss!
In 1954, my mother, aunt and both grandparents witnessed two disc shaped objects maneuvering around a Navy cargo plane flying overhead, in the middle of the day. My grandfather was a 26-year Navy and Coast Guard aviator. He would speak of this in amazement, and this was one of my mother's favorite topics of discussion.
I suppose you just have to be in the right place at the right time?
When I was 12 I witnessed an aircraft of some type that exhibited flight characteristics that couldn't be explained (at least by me). I later worked on military aircraft for 6 years in the Marine Corps and nothing in my experience during that time could explain what I observed when I was 12. At night (approximately 2100 hours) on my parents' property in Mississippi the dogs began barking and whining at the back door. As I let the dogs out I observed a single aircraft with multiple lights hovering above the treeline about 150 yards behind my parents' house and approximately 150 yards in elevation. The aircraft did not emit any detectable sound and was hovering perfectly still above the treeline. It was clear by the dogs' behavior that the aircraft was what had them wound up. The aircraft was dark, with the exception of the non-blinking lights, and the shape could not be determined.
I then went inside and grabbed a concentrated spotlight (headlamp) and as soon as I aimed the light at the hovering aircraft it sped off to the right with instant top speed (not gradual) acceleration until it was out of sight within 2-3 seconds. At no time did the aircraft make any noise at all.
I have no idea what type of aircraft I observed. The flight characteristics don't match anything I have ever observed or even read about related to a variety of military (or civilian) aircraft.
Laugh if it pleases you, In the summer of 1959, I observed a light about the size of an airplane with no flashing wing lights moving from East to West, I was looking South, at about the same speed an airplane would have been traveling. I was just watching it, when all of a sudden it just stopped moving. It stayed still for maybe 5 seconds, then it shot straight up at a very high rate of speed and was gone out of sight in, I would guess, less than just a few seconds.
I remember it was around 9:30, maybe 10:00, clear unobstructed view across farm fields. I will never forget it, and I have never seen anything like it since. I was almost 13 years old at the time and have wondered my whole life what I witnessed that summer night.
…Having said that, 40 years ago my father and I were out fishing about 10 miles west of the Coronado Islands off Mexico (which was not far from where the Nimitz pilots had their encounter). It was about 3:00 AM and very dark but something either came up out of the water and hovered behind the boat or came down to the surface and hovered for a minute or so then we believe it went into the water. It made no sound and had no lights and the shape was hard to distinguish. We think it was fairly large but not huge and it shook us up pretty good until it was light out. It might have been a submarine but we are pretty sure it was airborne. We reported it to Mufon and they came out and talked to us but of course nothing ever came of it.
First one I saw was triangular white lights with one red light in the middle. I watched it for about 15 minutes. That one was seen by so many other people that it made the front page of the newspaper. It was there one minute, began slowing moving and about 5 seconds later it just instantly disappeared.
Second one was a daytime sighting. It looked like a small silvery disk very high in the sky. Binoculars showed no details, just made it bigger (but still pretty small). The object was moving fairly slowly and perpendicular to the direction of the wind. I grabbed the camera and shot a few images to get exposure right. Then I set the camera in burst mode so I could be zoomed in all the way (202.5mm equivalent, 24MP APS sensor). The object was very high in the sky making it impossible to lean the camera against anything and, even with image stabilization, it was tough to keep things rock steady. So I figured that, with a 10-shot burst, I would be guaranteed of getting one or more razor-sharp images (I did). Image #7 of the 10-shot burst (at 10 frames per second) was the last to show the object. It simply vanished completely. It should have still been visible naked eye but I could see nothing. Tried binoculars all over the sky, still nothing.
So for what it's worth, those are my experiences. I have had friends over the years, including a military pilot and a commercial pilot, that have had some pretty exotic experiences. I'm pretty confident that anyone who has done the least bit of homework in this area (fake YouTube CGI videos aside) would have no doubts that these craft are real and that some are ours and some aren't.
In 1976 my fire crew and I drove up on an object out in the woods in broad daylite that was no more than 400yds away at a altitude of about 150ft. It was about the size, color and shape of a 45ft airstream travel trailer. I stopped the truck and turned it off and we got out and watched this object for 5 plus minutes. It hovered and maneuvered and was obviously under someone’s control. This thing had no wings, rotors, fins or any markings or windows, nor did it have panel lines or rivets. most striking of all, it was completely silent. We watched it slowly travel uphill for about a half mile before dropping out of site behind the hill.
UFO? Call it what what you want but no one here even to this day has a machine that can fly like this thing did.
As far as I’m concerned, anyone who thinks these things aren’t real are just fooling themselves...

Old review from when I bought this about 1 year ago.
Disclosure - None. * Seller’s name: Laddy * Wechat: Laddy910
Price of item: 1250 CNY + approx. 120 CNY (International Shipping) = 1370 CNY = ~202 USD * Payment method: Wise (~5 USD fees) * Price of shipping: 120 CNY (within Asia)
Order timeline:


Quality - 9.4/10

  • Leather is nice, smooth and feels weighty. I love touching it and there's nothing but the beautiful leather smell when I first unboxed it. Even 1 year later, the bag still smells of leather, though not as strongly.
  • I left the bag with the flap opened for overnight but there were no creases, so plus points to the quality.
  • (-0.1) Stitching is mostly neat, even and consistent, except for some double stitches on the inside of the strap near the bag. It seems too random without purpose and appears on only 1 side of the strap. Update: Unable to confirm if auth has this too.
  • Strap came just the slightest bit creased from being folded. But no long term effects.
  • Zipper is perfect and smooth. Other hardware is good quality and substantial.
  • Base of the bag does deform a little when you fill it up.
  • (-0.5) Small stain on the outside of the strap that wasn't caught in the PSPs since Laddy didn't remove the wrapping from the strap. Tried leather conditionecleaner, water, soap, alcohol and nothing removes it sadly.

Accuracy - 9/10

  • Overall shape, weight and feel seem accurate. It has a good weight to the flap and in the bag generally.
  • Factory measurements are 24 x 14 x 11. Auth measurements vary depending on method of measurement (just the frame or the widest possible points).
  • Length of strap measured as 81cm, and on the auth I found online, 83cm. No deduction since human error is a thing.
  • Hardware looks accurate and tone looks right to me.
  • (-0.5) Inside stamp and inner compartment date code look good (and it's on the inside so who's gonna see anyway), but the outside stamp for CÉLINE looks a little off compared to auth 1 and auth 2. Slightly messy stamping on the C, and also on the bottom horizontal line of the last E, and PARIS generally. And wrong font for the E's (middle horizontal line of the Es should be shorter than the top and bottom). This doesn't bother me since the logo is so tiny!
  • (-0.5) Base of the bag also isn’t as flat as auth but honestly no one will know especially when the bag is loaded up.

Short Wear and Tear Update

  • I haven’t used this bag a ton since I find it hard to match with my wardrobe but I’ve used it at least 10 times? I can comfortably crossbody this bag and am 164cm. The bag doesn’t show ANY signs of wear even though I load it up when I use it and am clumsy. Think 500ml water bottle and roughly slinging the bag around.
  • I actually enjoy using it, other than the colour… I regularly spray this bag with Collonil Carbon Pro to prevent colour transfer.

Satisfaction - 7/10

Update: Was 10/10
  • I had first fallen in love with the mineral and dark green combination, but since it was OOS, I was sold by another review (no longer accessible) and decided to take a chance. Update: This is actually a big reason why my satisfaction fell so much and now I’m even considering rehoming this bag.
  • I was floored when I first unboxed it! I LOVE THE SIZE ON THIS. The thick strap is a godsend but if you’re taller or bigger sized, you can only carry this side shoulder style. The little compartments are also helpful. The clasp has a little of a learning curve.
  • The only problem I've experienced is when I bend over without closing the clasp... That resulted in everything spilling out, but this is just a bad habit I have.
  • Overall, I'm absolutely thrilled with this bag. Update: Other than the colour of course

Seller Communication and Service - 10/10

  • Laddy is SO patient and kind, but I would mostly recommend her for if you already know what you want. She’s not the most helpful in explaining factory differences (based on my singular experience).
  • PSP lighting made it seem like there were discolourations on the leather. She assured me that it was lighting, and tried to send more pictures to prove it, but the same issues persisted. Since it was late and she had been sweet and patient with me, I decided to just GL. My concerns were unfounded on this!
  • When I found the mark on the bag strap, Laddy was prompt to reply and suggest ways in which to try removing the stain. Nothing worked unfortunately, but I appreciate her help. She probably could have been a bit more thorough in her QC and taken pictures of the straps, but it was also partially my fault.
  • I'm happy with her service overall and would go back. She doesn't have any standard discounts though, and this adds up.

Cost Performance Ratio (CPR) - 10/10

  • Excellent quality and materials for the price. I would buy more from this factory if the situation arises.

Wrap Up - 9/10

  • I generally try to avoid wearing the bag of the same brand into the boutique but that’s just my personal preference. Honestly if you act natural no one will pick anything up. Also SAs are not trained to pick up this class of reps unless it’s really a bad rep, which this one is not.
  • I would still wear this bag into the boutique if it came to it and would also let the SA handle it. This bag isn’t super popular and it’s design is also simple yet elegant so there isn’t much to call out on. Additionally any discernible differences can be pegged to the bag being old.

2023.05.09 12:24 bob_the_impala Current CAL FIRE Air Tactical Aircraft - Air Attack

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (commonly referred to as the CDF or CAL FIRE) has an Aviation Management Program to provide aerial firefighting services. Headquarters are at KMCC Sacramento McClellan Airport (McClellan Aviation Management Unit and McClellan Air Tanker Base). The state is divided into a Northern Region with 12 units and a Southern Region with 9 units, for a total of 21 units. Aircraft are based at 14 Fire Attack Bases (also referred to as Air Attack or Air Tanker Bases) and 10 Helitack bases, plus one shared CAL FIRE / San Diego County Sheriff Helitack base. Additional aircraft are used as needed, including aircraft from local law enforcement organizations, local fire departments, contracted private companies, and military units (National Guard, Air National Guard).

Air Tactical Aircraft - Air Attack

Fixed-wing aircraft that flies over an incident, providing tactical coordination with the Incident Commander on the ground, and directing airtankers and helicopters to critical areas of a fire for retardant and water drops. Crew of two: Pilot and Air Tactical Group Supervisor (also referred to as Chief Officer, Air Attack Officer, or Fire Captain).

Current Air Attack Aircraft: North American OV-10 Bronco

All aircraft are ex-USN/USMC OV-10A or OV-10D types. Six aircraft were previously used by the Bureau of Land Management, with an additional 13 - 15 aircraft acquired starting in 1993 via the Federal Excess Personal Property program. An eventual fleet of 20 aircraft is planned. Ejection seats, armor, weapons, and weapon systems (including fuselage sponsons) were removed. A 125 gallon fuel tank was installed in the cargo compartment. The electrical system, avionics, navigation systems, and radios were updated. The OV-10A all originally had three-bladed propellers, while the OV-10D had four-bladed propellers. All existing operational aircraft have been upgraded with MT-Propeller five-bladed propellers.
The aircraft are owned by the US Forest Service and CAL FIRE, flown by the California Fire Pilots Association, and operated and maintained by Amentum (formerly DynCorp/Amentum and DynCorp International), and Logistics Specialties Incorporated. They are located at 14 Air Attack Bases throughout California. The CDF holds the FAA type certificate for the OV-10A, operating in the "Restricted" category.
Aircraft are assigned a call number based on the unit number to which they belong. While just the call numbers are painted on the aircraft, they are often referred to with an "A" or "AA" prefix, e.g., A110, A-110, or AA-110. This essentially makes it a civilian aircraft designation system.
One of the three aircraft based at McClellan sometimes may be based elsewhere, e.g. A505 was based at Redding in 2016, while the other two are used as spares. Source

There seems to be some confusion as to the fate and current identity of two OV-10s: BuNo 155479 and BuNo 155480. Both serial numbers are listed in the FAA type certificate data sheet.
(MSN 305-90) converted to OV-10D. To AMARC as 1V0048, to PA0009 Apr 30, 1993. Later operated by California Department of Forestry as N408DF. Conflict here as Registration N47892 originally reserved but cancelled Aug 20, 1998, registered N88970 Feb 21, 2008 to US Department of State, Patrick AFB, FL. Registered 15Jul09 to National Vietnam Veterans Museum, Mineral Wells, Texas. Registered 7Dec17 to Mangic Foundation, Costa Mesa, CA; current [Mar20]. For restoration to airworthy condition by Aerofab, Chino, CA and operation with the OV-10 Squadron Sold to Blue Air Training Also listed as being with VAL-4 and hit by small arms fire 30 mi W of Saigon Sep 29, 1970, and crew ejected and were rescued by helicopter.
Since BuNo 155480 was never upgraded from OV-10A to OV-10D, then it seems that N88970 is ex-BuNo 155479 and N408DF is ex-BuNo 155480. The simplest explanation is that when 155480 was registered with the FAA, the incorrect serial number was used (305-90 instead of 305-91). However, I have no way of confirming this.

Surprise bitch! I bet you thought you've seen the last of me.
A new season of DRES means a new bunch of Spaniards speaking at light speed and a new bunch of cultural references for me to explain! I have to say, I was not sure I wanted to go through all this work again (even more so after watching the first two episodes this season... vaya cuadro.) but episode 3 won me over! So, without further ado, open google maps and prepare to learn a lot more about Spanish sayings, slayage and shennanigans!

2:49 - When everyone is congratulating Pink Chadora as the winner of the previous episode, she confesses that some of them think she’s “pesada”. WOW’s subtitles translated this literally as “heavy” but in this context, “pesada” means “annoying”.
03:24 - Hornella compares Vania’s hair to Camarón (arguably the most famous flamenco singer ever) when she was still wearing her wig from the previous episode. She had a point.
04:07 - Pink Chadora tells the girls that Chikilicuatre’s pussy “mola mogollón, lo bailan en la China y también en Alcorcón” (it’s so cool, they dance to it in China and also in Alcorcón). These are lyrics for Rodolfo Chikilicuatre’s song for Eurovision 2008 (well, minus the pussy part).
05:02 - In their little entrance skit (derogatory) Vania pronounces “(lip sync) Assassin” in a way that’s closer to the very ungrammatical Spanish “hase asín” (does it like this).
05:27 - Chanel really wanted to say “una menos en Canarias” (one less in the Canary Islands) after Drag Chuchi’s elimination. The Canary Islands are in a different timezone than the rest of Spain, one hour behind to be exact. So, when you watch any TV news they used to start their broadcast saying something like “It’s 9pm, one (hour) less in the Canary Islands”.
07:00 - Pink Chadora doesn’t want any more dance challenges. She compares her experience in Drag Race so far with the 2000s teen show “UPA dance” (actually called “Un paso adelante) and the dance TV competition “Fama ¡A bailar!” (Fame, let’s dance!)
07:23 - This is the tongue twister Supremme says in her video message: Tres tristes tigres tragaban trigo en un trigal y en tres tristes trastos tragaban trigo los tres tristes tigres. It was hard even to write it down.
07:48 - When Supremme enters the werkroom, The Macarena asks her about a “fiesta ibicenca” (Ibiza-style party). In this kind of party, everyone is supposed to wear white clothes.
08:45 - The sentence that Supremme uses to define Drag Race as a place where “se dan más puntadas sin hilo que con hilo” (they sew more without than with thread) is the opposite of the actual popular saying “no dar puntada sin hilo” (to never sew without thread), which means to only act when a benefit is to be received. Supremme is shitting on the show a bit right now, ngl.
11:44 - When Pink Chadora gets to the Asturias traditional costume, she calls that place “patria querida” (beloved homeland). She’s only saying that because the anthem from that region has that as lyrics and everyone in Spain knows that.
13:23 - So, you might be asking yourselves, who the hell is Palomo Spain? In short, he’s a fashion designer whose style mixes traditional southern spanish influences with a genderless approach to fashion. He has dressed Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and Harry Styles among others. He’s also one of the main judges of the TV sewing competition “Maestros de la Costura” (Sewing masters), so he’s used to judge contestant’s garments and that might be why he’s kind of hard with his critiques this episode. Palomo means “male pigeon” (it’s his actual surname…), that’s why he says something about pigeons in his intro video.
13:31 - When she talks with that raspy voice, Hornella is impersonating Lorenzo Caprile, another designer who worked with Palomo as a judge in that sewing competition I just mentioned. She’ll do it again a couple of times later in the episode!
14:09 - Pink Chadora doesn’t think she could design anything charro-like (rememeber, charro = people from Salamanca) with the materials she got and Kelly says they remind her of “Charro” Mohedano. Chayo Mohedano is a singer and TV personality, who’s related to the late great Rocío Jurado.
16:56 - Her dubious sentences make Pink Chadora get reminded of our ex-president Mariano Rajoy who, let’s say it gently, wasn’t blessed with an ease for public speaking.
17:31 - The gorgeous suit Ana is wearing when she enters the werkroom with Supremme was designed with the (not Arantxa) Castilla-La Mancha traditional costume in mind, specifically the Pisto handkerchief.
20:44 - “Pakita Putita” should be on her merch right now.
23:44 - Pink Chadora compares Vania’s sultry, sensual, a bit creepy, voice with that of Samantha Hudson who was one of the two guest contestants of DRES S1 Snatch Game.
23:55 - Starting now the count of how many times someone is going to make a joke with the similarity of the words “pubilla” and “putilla” (lil’ slut).
33:18 - When Supremme asks Ana if she prefers wine or beer, Ana says she prefers beer because she likes “tirar la caña”. While this expression means “to flirt”, the word “caña” could also be used as a synonym for a cup of beer.
33:31 - I’m not sure any other country has “gildas”, so for those who were utterly confused by WOW’s subtitles, these are sort of an aperitif or snack to be eaten while drinking. It’s usually olives, anchovies and other pickled stuff pierced through with a toothpick. Oh, and a “piparra” is a sort of pickled pepper.
33:50 - When Javi Ambrossi tells Calvo that he likes a good “matrimonio” (literally, marriage) he’s referring to the name given to the combination of two types of anchovies.
RUNWAY: COLORS (AKA. Why it gotta be so white?)
34:53 - PAKITA is dressed like a devotee on her way to El Rocío, a small town in Andalucia that holds a 13-century statue of the Virgin of El Rocío. This is a huge event every year where people from different places go on a pilgrimage (by foot, horse, carriage, etc).
35:05 - Supreme says “Yo iba de peregrina…” (I was on a pilgrimage) which are the starting lyrics of this song by María del Monte.
35:08 - Pakita washes the dirt off her feet using a bottle of beer, paying homage to this famous photo of Carmina Ordoñez in the 90s. She was a socialite and TV personality that came from a family of renowned bullfighters.
35:10 - When Javi Calvo says “Carmina o revienta” (Carmina or burst!) he’s mixing the name of this woman with the title of this movie, directed by episode 1 special guest judge Paco León (starring his own mother).
35:25 - Palomo and Ana wish that Carmina was still with us. She passed away in 2004, part of her ashes were scattered in El Rocío.
35:27 - Javi Calvo tells Pakita “nos alegramos de verde” (we’re green with happiness), a wordplay in which he exchanged the word “verte” (see you) with “verde” (green).
35:40 - HORNELLA is representing this boulevard in Alicante. She also says she’s waving like a “Bellea del foc” (beauty of the fire), which is the name given to the young women chosen as queen of the bonfires of Saint John, a popular festivity in Alicante.
36:03 - When Javier Calvo says “One Pamela…”, Supremme is very fast to respond “Two Pamela” and then everybody laughs. This is not only in reference to the spanish name of the kind of hat Hornella is wearing, but it’s also a well-known bantery joke that’s funny because “two pamela” sounds like “chúpamela” (suck me).
36:16 - PINK CHADORA stomps the runway representing Málaga’s flower, the biznaga.
36:24 - Ana makes a joke mixing the word drag with “jazmín” (jasmine), which makes sense here because bizganas are not natural flowers, but compositions made with jasmine stems made by artisans.
36:44 - Supremme says that Hornella has his head “llena de capullos” (filled with buds), and “capullo” in slang for (surprise!) dick.
37:00 - VANIA VAINILLA is representing Zaragoza today. Her skirt is a deconstructed “cachirulo”, the traditional Aragonese headscarf which is typically black and red.
37:03 - Ana couldn’t control herself and makes a put mixing “zorra” (slut) and “Zaragoza”. Hence, “zorragoza”.
37:11 - The flowers in Vania’s dress are representing the flower offering to Our Lady of the Pillar, Zaragoza’s patron, that takes place every 12th October in the city. Her headpiece is also similar to the halo that particular symbol wears.
37:17 - Ana calls Vania “mañosa” (crafty) but only because the demonym for Zaragoza is “maños/mañas”.
37:27 - As CHANEL ANOREX goes out the door, Javi Calvo calls her “Quinqué San Francisco”. “Quinqué” is an old-fashioned way of calling the type of lantern Chanel is holding in this look, and it also sounds similar to the name Quique, as in the spanish actor’s name Quique San Francisco.
37:36 - Chanel is representing Salamanca and the golden Villamayor stone, used in many of the numerous monuments that city holds.
37:43 - Supremme says this looks “le encandila” (dazzles her), also making a joke with a different name for that lantern: “Candil”.
37:55 - And third time is the charm: When Chanel is leaving the runway Supremme says “ella va de farol” (she’s faking it), which is a common Spanish expression that contains the word “farol” which is, you guessed it, yet another word for lantern.
38:06 - THE MACARENA is wearing Cádiz today. She’s representing the white towns filled with flower pots very characteristic of that region. Cádiz city is also known as “la tacita de plata” (the little silver cup). She could’ve found a nicer cup to bring to the runway but ok.
38:22 - After Palomo comments on the bridal air of the runway so far, the Javis say “¿Dónde está el gramo?” (where is the gram?). This must be a reference to something else, but at the very least they are talking about drugs making a pun with the word “gramo” (gram) and “ramo” (bouquet).
38:52 - During CLOVER BISH’s runway, Javi Ambrossi says “que vivan los cubatas” (long live the cuban drinks, as the WOW subtitles put it), in which “cubata” is an informal way of calling any mixed alcoholic drink. The term comes from the particular cocktail known as “Cuba Libre” (rum and coke).
38:53 - Supremme adds “(que viva) el malecón” (long live the esplanade), referring to a sea-side street in Havana, Cuba. It also rhymes with “maricón” (f*g).
39:21 - PITITA explains it all very well. El Molino (the windmill) is a cabaret venue in Barcelona which opened in the early XX century and it’s still going! It used to be known as the little Moulin Rouge.
39:29 - Pitita refers to the queer world as “este mundo del plumerío” (this feathery world). I know this has been a topic of discussion in the subreddit for a couple of weeks but in a nutshell: In Spanish, when a guy is effeminate or flamboyant, we say that they have “pluma” (feathers). Fun fact: guys with the infamous “no fems” in their hooking-up apps profiles would be labeled “plumófobos” (feather-phobic).
39:45 - When Pitita is leaving the runway Javi Calvo makes up a dialogue in which someone asks him if he’s going out tonight and he replies “no, estoy molino” (no, I’m windmill). This doesn’t make any sense if you don’t know the expression “estar molido” (to be ground down), which means to be exhausted. Note the similarity between the words “molino” and “molido” here.
40:03 - When KELLY ROLLER flips her jacket from Partido Popular’s blue (right wing) to PSOE’s red (socialists), the judges call her “chaquetera” which simply means “turncoat”.
40:05 - Javi Calvo calls her Rosa Diez, a politician that started her career as a socialist and then founded her own right-wing party.
40:19 - Spanish politics used to be very bi-partidist until quite recently. The back of Kelly’s runway represents the purple of the left wing Podemos. The words on her back read “Elle no es una errata” (Elle is not a typo). “Elle” is a word in inclusive language (think your they/them in English), something that this party has been trying to push forward officially.
40:40 - Ana is one of us!
40:54 - Ana remarks that you can see VISA’s “panocha” (pussy), which is also a word for corncob.
As Visa is leaving, Javi Calvo says “Nunca Maíz”, a play on words between the anti-pollution slogan “Nunca máis” (never again) popularized after one of the worst environmental catastrophes in Spanish history, and the spanish word for corn, “maíz”.
41:10 - I think this might be fairly common in other countries, but it’s pretty common here to get a bumper car thingy installed in your city/town when there’s any kind of special occasion.
41:17 - When BESTIAH reveals her light-up bra, Supremme says “sube que te llevo” (hop on, I’ll take you), probably a reference to this 1993 trance song of the same name. This is something that definitely Supremme heard while riding some bumper cars 30 years ago.
41:22 - Bestiah calls his breast “las intermitetas”, a portmanteau of “intermitentes” (blinkers) and “tetas” (boobs).
41:28 - Javi Calvo calls Bestiah the real Motomami, in reference to Rosalia’s last album. To that, Supremme replies “a comprar ficha” (go buy some tokens), presumably to ride her.
42:33 - Javi Calvo recites the starting lyrics of this song which goes like: It was a sunday afternoon, we were at the bumper cars.
42:03 - During PAKITA’s eggy runway, Ana says that her egg is “muy bien cosido” (very well sewn). The joke is that “cosido” sounds like “cocido” (boiled).
42:05 - Palomo comments that her egg comes with “puntilla”, which can mean both “lace” and also the brown, crispy part in a fried egg outside.
42:12 - As she’s leaving, Javi Calvo tells Pakita “a ver si te aclaras” (try to figure it out). The verb “aclarar” (clear things up) sounds related to “clara” (egg white).
42:28 - HORNELLA’s outfit is an homage to Fideuá, a seafood dish quite similar to paella but with noodles instead of rice (I know this is an oversimplification, please don’t kill me paella warriors).
43:04 - During PINK CHADORA’s wine-inspired runway, Javi Ambrossi makes one of the oldest jokes I could think of, but it’s still quite funny. I think we already covered this last year, but our kind of “knock knock” jokes start by explaining a situation and then saying “the curtain closes, what’s the name of the movie?”. In this case, the answer is “Es-tinto básico” (it’s basic red wine), a play on “Instinto básico” (Basic Instinct, 1992).
43:19 - The whole judging panel demands Pink Chadora to “drop the glass” in reference to this iconic TV moment where Manuela Trasobares, a trans opera singer, makes a whole speech about the unfortunate situation of her peers in the Spanish society of the early 2000. Then she starts smashing glasses and asks the other panelists to do the same saying “¡tira la copa!”.
43:32 - As VANIA VAINILLA comes onto the runway, Javi Ambrossi calls her “Susi Caramelo”, a comedienne that was one of the guest judges on DRES season 2 and whose surname means “candy”.
43:48 - As Vania explains, she’s dressed as an “adoquín” (literally, cobblestone), a huge piece of candy from Zaragoza.
44:16 - CHANEL is repping strawberries from Huelva, Andalucia, are quite famous for their quality and size.
44:35 - Javi Calvo continues with his puns. He quotes “yo no soy fresa que tu te imaginas” (I’m not that strawberry you think I am), a play on the lyrics of this song that actually go “yo no soy esa que tu te imaginas” (I’m not that girl you think I am). IMHO, we’re overdue for a Mari Trini lip sync.
44:44 - When THE MACARENA is announced, Javi Calvo asks “¿quién pincha hoy?” (who’s DJ-ing today?). The verb “pinchar” means “to puncture/poke” but it’s also the act of playing records as the word for DJ in spanish is “pinchadiscos” (disk-poker).
44:56 - The Cádiz Carnival is one of the most famous in Spain.
45:00 - When Ana says she gets goosebumps just looking at her outfit, she’s making a pun with the expression “se me eriza la piel” (literally, my skin turns into prickles) and the Spanish word for sea urchin, “erizo”.
45:12 - Supremme calls The Macarena, “Espinete de luto” (Espinete in mourning). Espinete was the name of a huge pink hedgehog that was one of the main characters in our version of Sesame Street in the 90s. The name comes from the Spanish word for spines, “espina”.
45:25 - CLOVER BISH is wearing a look inspired by the catalan dessert “Mel i mató” which consists of a kind of cottage cheese mixed with honey and walnuts.
45:27 - The name of this dish is in catalan, meaning honey and cottage cheese, but to a Spanish speaker the “mató” part could be understood as the past tense of the verb “to kill”. Also, “Meli” could be the shortened name of a woman. This is where Palomo’s comment is based on.
45:29 - Javi Calvo does a similar comment when he says “¿Qué hago, me-li-mato?” (What should I do, kill myself?).
45:45 - Javi cannot contain himself and does yet another pun with the Spanish word for honey, “miel”, when he says “a mi-el me da igual” (I don’t care about him).
46:06 - When PITITA reveals from a croquette into a squid, Supremme calls her “Calamar Flores”. The Spanish word for squid is “calamar” and Mar Flores is a model, actres and TV presenter.
46:13 - Javi Calvo praises Pitita’s ass saying she’s got a great “Tenta-culo”. This time he didn’t even need to mix any words as the spanish word for tentacle is “tentáculo” and it already contains “culo” (ass).
46:18 - In case you’re curious, this is Pitita’s favorite croquette. I personally hate them but this look was amazing.
46:37 - During KELLY ROLLER’s runway, Javi Calvo asks her “a ver si vienes a Vermeer” (why don’t you come to Vermeer?), in which he exchanged the word “ver me” (to see me) with the name of the dutch painter.
46:41 - Javi Ambrossi says that Kelly is not “cortada”, which in relation to milk means “curdled” but when you say this about a person it means that they are shameless.
47:01 - After Kelly splashes milk all over her bosom, Javi Calvo calls her “la marrana de la Campurriana” (the Campurriana’s whore). This is a line taken directly from The Javi’s Netflix show Paquita Salas. There is a scene in which Paquita, an agent, is trying to get more gigs for one of their clients, an actress. She’s trying to convince her to make a viral video in which she shows different branded products so these brands call her to make their commercials, but their attempts take a turn to the filthy.
47:05 - Right before leaving, Javi Ambrossi asks Kelly if she’s “lechera” (literally, milkmaid). Informally, asking a guy if he’s “lechero” would be asking him if he cums a lot.
47:27 - As VISA is walking the runway, Palomo comments “le importa un pimiento”. This is an expression similar to your English “I don’t give a damn”, but in Spain we don’t give a pepper.
47:30 - Javi Calvo continues making my life impossible when he says “no le, no le, no le, chi le”. When I was a little kid, kids my age used to collect stickers with the goal of completing an album of them. These stickers came in randomized packs so you ended up with a lot of repeated ones to exchange with other kids. When you were going through another kid’s stack you would say “si le” (I do) if you already had that sticker and “no le” (I don’t) if you didn’t have that one. In this case, the joke is that Javi says “chile” (chili) instead of “si le”.
47:39 - There is a quite famous brand of intimate feminine hygiene in Spain called Chilly whose motto goes “en lo más íntimo, quiero Chilly” (I want Chilly in my privates). The thing is, we call “chili” this kind of spicy peppers so… let’s say everybody knows this motto.
48:17 - As BESTIAH leaves the runway, Javi Calvo calls her “Rega-liz Taylor”, as “regaliz” means licorice. Ana asks where her “puta zeta” is, mixing the name of the pop-rock candy “peta zetas” and “puta” (slut).
As a little bit of background, Spain is divided in 17 autonomous communities (and further split up into 50 provinces). Each of these regions have their own traditional garments, and these are the looks they queens are asked to reinterpret today on the runway.
48:41 - For those of you that have been following DRES from S1, you might remember Hugáceo’s Fallas look. PAKITA has been tasked with reinterpreting the garment worn for that festivity. Las Fallas of Valencia have everything to do with fire, hence her soot stained legs.
48:49 - When Javi Calvo says that he’s feeling that “caloret faller” (the heat from las fallas) he’s making a reference to Valencia’s mayor Rita Barberá’s botched attempt to give the 2015 Fallas opening speech in Valencian. A right-wing politician trying to appeal to regular people in such a sloppy way obviously became viral.
49:01 - Javi Ambrossi was right: TV presenter Núria Roca is from Valencia.
49:20 - During HORNELLA’s runway, Javi Calvo says “se llama Sara, y goza” (her name is Sara, and she enjoys herself). Sara+goza sounds like Zaragoza.
49:30 - Hornella is repping Aragón’s traditional garment, and that’s why Supremme calls her Hornella “Aragón-gora”.
49:46 - PINK CHADORA defines herself as a “charra”, another name for the people from Salamanca. Supremme even calls her “Charra Carbonero”, a pun on Sara Carbonero who is a TV presenter.
50:05 - Pink Chadora says that her look is a mix between Dolly Parton and gossip journalist and TV personality Lydia Lozano[email protected]) (probably because of that wig).
50:08 - Just as the queen is leaving, Javi Calvo makes a joke saying “mira a esa, la manca” (look at that one, the one missing an arm) just because it sounds exactly as Salamanca (esa-la-manca).
50:21 - More jokes about how “pubilla”, which is the name of this traditional garment from Catalonia, sounds almost like “putilla” (lil’ slut) during VANIA’s runway.
50:37 - Javi Calvo name drops Judge Mercedes Ayala, not sure why.
50:52 - The first thing anyone says when CHANEL turns the corner comes from Palomo. He says “ahí va la hostia”, which is an expression of surprise very identifiable from the Basque Country.
51:11 - At this point, I’m convinced Javi Calvo just says whatever comes to mind. In this case, he says “Eskerrik asko-nverters”, which is the mix between the Basque words “eskerrik asko” (thank you) and the name of the chain of second-hand products, Cash Converters.
51:19 - The most well-known and important museum in the Basque Country is The Guggenheim, in Bilbao.
51:20 - Javi Calvo continues his stream of consciousness style of commenting by saying “Gabon” (good night in Basque) as Chanel leaves.
51:52 - Javi Ambrossi changes MACARENA’s name to Tena Lady, a brand of undergarments for people with incontinence. Lovely.
51:55 - Right after her reveal, Javi Calvo comments that Macarena has “a coño de aquí a Logroño” (a pussy from here to Logroño), a popular expression that means someone is quite bold or brave. Logroño is the capital of La Rioja, so it fits even better.
52:03 - Supremme compares Macarena in her old-lady make-up to Carmen Gahona, a lady who is the ex-wife of a famous singer and was relevant while she was fighting for her widowhood pension after his death. She’s now a Youtuber?
52:12 - As soon as CLOVER BISH comes out, Supremme exclaims “¡Arsa!”, an Andalusian expression that used to cheer someone.
52:23 - Palomo starts singing something about a frog jumping but he’s not having a stroke, he’s singing this classic tune by María del Monte (again!). The singer compares the jumps of a frog with her heartbeat when her lover calls her name.
52:52 - I’m not sure about this one, but during PITITA’s runway Javi Calvo says “tetas tiene dos, Cáceres y Badajoz” (she has two tits, Cáceres and Badajoz). These are the two provinces in which Extremadura is divided.
53:07 - I expected someone to make this comment because it’s the oldest in the book. Extremadura can be divided into two words: “extrema” (extreme) and “dura” (hard).
53:32 - Ok, listen, I’m from Asturias and was personally offended by KELLY’s look.
53:38 - Supremme makes a joke based on the Spanish Netflix show “La casa de papel” (Money Heist): Úrsula Corberó plays Tokyo, Kelly plays Asturias and Supremme plays… Fuenlabrada, which is a town in Madrid.
53:49 - Asturias is probably the main producer of milk in the country and one of the biggest dairy companies in Spain is called Central Lechera Asturiana (Asturian Dairy Company).
54:16 - During VISA’s runway, Supremme starts singing this song by Paco Clavel while the Javis remind us that bananas should have specks using the phrase “y si tiene motitas, mejor que mejor” (and if it has specks, much better) that comes from a 2010s TV campaign about Canarian bananas. I couldn’t find a video of this but that slogan is ingrained in my brain for forever at this point.
54:23 - When they say that Visa just came from the dunes, they are talking about Maspalomas in Gran Canaria, which is both a nature reserve and a well-known gay cruising spot.
54:26 - The only thing I could find about a “Yumbo” in the Canary Islands was a gay shopping center that includes at least one cruising bar, so maybe they are sending their regards there.
54:36 - BESTIAH’s is not the first chulapa representation in DRES as Killer Queen, Pupi Poisson and Juriji did their own versions of Madrid’s regional garment.
54:46 - Javi Calvo makes a reference to this song changing the lyrics from “¿dónde se mete la chica del 17?” (How does the girl from apartment 17 do it?) to “lo que se mete la chica del 17” (what the girl from apartment 17 puts inside of her).
54:58 - As she leaves the stage Bestiah sings a little bit of this chotis, which is the traditional music and dance of Madrid.
55:04 - When Palomo decides he wants Bestiah as the next mayor of Madrid, Javi Ambrossi says “Más Madrid y menos ropa” (More Madrid and less clothes). “Más Madrid” is the name of a new political party that wants to get rid of the current president of Madrid, Isabel Ayuso.
01:00:46 - People that vote for Partido Popular are informally called “peperos/peperas” because the acronym of this political party is PP (“pepe” in Spanish).
01:02_29 - When Hornella says Our Lady of the Pillar didn’t tell her anything, not even whether she wants to be french or not, she's making a reference to the lyrics of a very famous “Jota” (the traditional music of Aragón) in which the Virgin says she doesn’t want to be French, but the captain of the Aragón troops against France.
And that's all! Chanel is sent home (or is she?) and the rest of the queens are free to slay another day. What did you think about the episode? Did I miss any references you want explained? The part I enjoy the most about making this posts is the comment section so let's get this roast a cookin'. Also, as usual, let me leave my paypal here in case anyone wants/can afford to tip me:
¡Que suene la música!

Crime scene picture of Neil Gardner's flattened .45 bullet just outside the West doors
How does a .45 caliber bullet flatten like this and fall to the ground in the middle of an open area without striking an object that it can't pass through?
A: It doesn't.
This is not a fragment. This is what a bullet looks like after striking something bulletproof and falling to the ground.
#2238 Gardner's bullet outside the West doors
This is Neil Gardner's bullet that was found several feet in front of the West doors, the exact location where he shot - and thought he hit - a suspect wearing a bulletproof vest. The evidence speaks for itself - Gardner hit that suspect.
Gardner had a shootout with a suspect he described as wearing a dark blue bullet proof vest. Gardner said the suspect was standing outside, just a few feet from the doors. Gardner fired, and thought he hit the suspect because he spun around in a full circle.
Later, a blue vest with a bullet hole and bullet fragments was found hanging in a science room. Neither the fragment evidence numbers nor test results were ever released to the public. A blue vest with a bullet hole and bullet fragments? Like the one the shooter was wearing when Gardner shot at him?
Gardner described the suspect as tall, specifically taller than Eric Harris, and he initially stated that he thought it was Dylan Klebold. Gardner said the suspect was wearing a blue flak jacket over a white t-shirt and a backwards ball cap. He saw only one suspect, which would make 'transference' impossible. Or, would it? Certainly you wouldn't have transference if only one suspect was seen?
What is transference?
Transference is when a witness 'transfers' details from one person to another. For example, people who saw both Eric and Dylan might remember Eric as wearing the backwards baseball cap, and they might remember Dylan as wearing a white t-shirt. This is extremely common.
It appears that Neil Gardner's memory of the suspect at the West doors has been influenced by transference. There was a backwards baseball hat, a white shirt, and a tall suspect, but not on the same suspect. What does this mean? Gardner didn't just see one suspect that day. He saw both suspects, which is why his description of the suspect he engaged at the West doors includes a very clear case of transference.
But, didn't he just see one suspect?
Yes and no. He had a shootout with one suspect, but ballistics show he was in the library. Radio traffic also confirms he went inside briefly and then came back outside to regroup behind the Bronco.
Gardner saw one suspect during the shootout at the West doors, but he chased the suspects into the library, which gave him a view of both shooters. This is where the transference comes from.
Now what about that blue bulletproof vest the suspect was wearing? Is it the same vest that had a bullet fragment and bullet hole found hanging in the science room? Maybe.
We already know police lied about the suspects' attire in a small way. Police stated that none of the suspects wore a mask that day, and no masks were found, but photos of the dark green balaclava found in what appears to have been Eric's trench coat pocket, were published in the El Paso report. Numerous eyewitnesses saw a suspect in a ski mask. Some say it was Dylan, others say it was someone else.
Regardless, they lied when they said the suspects were not wearing masks and no masks were found during the investigation. What makes anyone think they wouldn't lie about a suspect wearing a flak jacket?
Sure, Eric had black webbing on his body, but it was open and unlikely that police would mistake it for a flak jacket. We have early statements from the physician who pronounced everyone dead saying that one of the shooters was found wearing body armor and was either still wearing or was lying on top of a black trench coat and had a gunshot wound to the back of the head.
Keep digging...

2023.04.30 15:00 Muffinfeds Interview with the Founder and CEO of Beelder

Interview with German Vega. Founder and CEO of Beelder.
Tell me about Beelder.
Beelder is the integration of many opportunities that the construction industry has, not only in Latin America, but across the world. The construction industry has seen little technological innovation. Today the form of construction is exactly the way it was over 100 years ago – McKinsey can show that with their studies, they demonstrate that productivity only moves when labour is increased. In other words, it’s the mindset: “we’ll create more with more people”, zero technology. As a result, over four years ago I got into the construction industry. I have twenty years of career experience in the world of mass consumption with multinationals and technology. I’m not a coder, my experience is in business and leading groups of technology. I arrived in this industry because my family has over 40 years of experience in this industry and I took over the management of these companies before quarantine. That’s when I discover that technology does not exist here. Beelder comes to try to solve many of those pain points and we want to be the first Super App for the construction industry, where Beelder is a hub, a one stop shop, and you can get the main resources for the construction industry. And by this, I mean first, is machinery and construction equipment leasing. Secondly, localization and contract hiring of personnel, these are blue collar workers. Thirdly, construction materials. All this is wrapped around a financial web, because inclusively, the access to credit in the construction industry is – it’s incredible that traditional banking continues to see the construction industry as if it were you or me, but the construction industry moves completely differently. Cash flows are different, which is why we see many companies or Latin American entrepreneurs who want to start their construction company and end up going bankrupt. It’s because the credit conditions of traditional banks are suffocating them. So, while all of these things are going on, the industry is so focused on continuing construction and building that they haven't looked to stop a little bit and say how can we do better what we’re already doing? How can we integrate technology into all of this? The traditional training has kept them from pondering these questions. They haven’t been trained to look at the technology aspect. The condition of competition, that is, the act of someone who is disrupting my company with technology and putting me at a disadvantage, does not exist. We are all without technology. Beelder comes to that, to take the first step to enter technology and continue to take the next small steps.
What inspired you to create Beelder?
As I was telling you, my family has always been linked to the construction industry. My dad and his brothers, who are seven brothers, have a civil construction company that builds, and they also have a company focused on energy issues. These issues include electricity, construction of all power lines, substations, electrical design, and photovoltaic solar plants more recently. They have another company that does construction machinery leasing. And here this is important for us to know because not everyone outside the industry knows about it. Builders come to buy machinery, expensive machinery. In other words, machines like retrofitters, excavators, cranes, etc., which are very expensive, and you buy them because you are going to develop a long-term project and you need that machine for a long time so it makes all the financial sense to buy the machine. The problem is when the project ends, and you have an asset that cost you more than $200,000 USD sitting there. So, if you don't get another project to use it, you are having a sitting investment that isn’t monetizing itself. Many construction companies end up leasing these machines to other construction companies so that they can use them, let's say when the machines are on standby / idle. This was the case with our family company. We had machines that were on standby / idle, so we formed a new company that’s focused on the leasing of these machines. When I joined I was like what is happening? Why is there no technology? There are so many people who have to go find someone to rent the machine when it’s already evident that there are many construction companies looking for the machines. They just don't know where to look for them or end up always going to the same five companies they know about. The little company that wants to rent out its machines is always missing out on business because the clients are always going to the same five companies they know about. The usage times of those machines is less than 50%. For example, let’s say you have a machine and let’s say you have 8 hours available for that machine to operate. What’s happening is you are only getting 4 hours of operating time on average. Why isn’t the machine operating for the other 4 hours? “Well, because vendors can't see what other projects these machines can be located in. In the same vain, my potential clients don’t know I have that machine available.” As a result, Beelder was a no brainer for me. I can one single place where all the demand arrives and all the supply is there, right? We connect supply with demand. The machines are not mine; the machines belong to my associates. They tell me what their available times are for their machines, when there machines are idle, I can monetize it for them. So instead of having a vendor who has 8 hours a day to rent machines, I have a bot that rents 24/7 and it’s in a location close to your project, where you need your machine. The construction industry has always been about friends calling their friends, whom they already know. They may have to pay much more for transportation of machines – it creates more CO2 in the atmosphere, it takes longer, and it turns out that next door there is a supplier that has a machine, but the two parties simply didn’t know each other. Builder connects them now. That was how the idea started, first just for my company but then I saw the opportunity to share this, why limit it to just my company? I started talking to my colleagues in this industry and they would say, “What a great idea if someone made this!” I was like I’m right here! You can apply this same concept with the blue-collar workers I was talking about earlier. We’re going to start a new project where we connect blue collar workers with construction companies. There’s a company called Faber Connect in Canada that does this. However, in Latin America the process is outdated and horrible. If I have a project 200km away from my head quarters, in Latin America we have to send almost an army of our HR team, to look for these blue collar workers. As you can imagine, there’s so many people who arrive to fill out the HR employment forms. With the amount of poverty in Latin America, many individuals leave their forms done by hand, every form is filled out differently, you have some putting some information, others putting other information, some that are filled out by friends, and some that aren’t legible. With the hunger and necessity that Latin America is filled with, people arrive and talk themselves up. Of course, we bring the stacks of resumes, and we start moving them into tools that a lot of people think are technological, like Microsoft Excel. We start to fill out Excel sheets and after we have tabulated all of that, we start to call the individuals who applied: “Hello, I need you for a project here, you say you’ve built walls, laid pipes?” The individual of course will reply, “Yes, totally!” No one can guarantee me that they’ve done what they said they’ve done because construction companies hire people by the project. One that project’s done, they let the workers go to another project with another company. That’s a challenge: when you don’t know how much experience an individual brings to a project. Beelder will have one single database for all workers, geographically referenced through their phones, which will allow us to know which projects they have worked in, for which businesses they have worked for, all in one database. It won’t matter if it’s construction company A, B, C, or D. If you need a worker with a specific background in this zone, you can go into Beelder and find that worker. Beelder validates that individual’s past history. The hiring process is incredibly faster. You don’t tabulate the resumes and look for people all over, you enter Beelder and it’s all there. We even have the rates for the workers listed so there’s no mismatch when it comes to wages. We can apply this same idea with construction supplies. It’s incredibly funny how the industry operates with data. For example, let’s say I have an Excel file where we have 10,000 Excel lines of materials that I am going to require to build my building. I start to shoot these Excel sheets to 10 large suppliers, to large warehouses, so they can tell me if they have the materials. I then have to be following up with them. Once they send me the 10 Excel sheets back, it’s all filled out differently because some download it from a certain system, others send it in a Word or PDF, etc. Then I have to start to tabulate that information and I found out that Provider 1 says he has these 500 items and the others do not, and then Provider 2 has 500 items that are different but also the same as Provider 1 with different variations… All that time is simplified if one has the inventories of each of these small to medium suppliers connected with an API. When we connect the inventories only once and you enter your Excel sheet on our platform, it tells you in real time who has that material. For example, in these 10,000 lines, these 3,000 lines are in these suppliers’ hands, these are by price in cheapest to most expensive, these ones are the ones that are in stock, these are the ones that are through credit, and these 7,000 are found here with these shipping times. This is all in one place through Beelder, you have the three things you need for construction: the machines, the personnel, and supplies.
Tell me about what you do on a typical day. What do you do at your job?
I’ll give a bit more backstory here too. Last year in May was when I decided to pursue Beelder. However, I didn’t have a co-founder, I was all alone. I started looking for a co-founder here in El Salvador. Then and still now, you have many American companies paying Latin American developers with the U.S. dollar. A lot of these developers are incredibly young, but they don’t have the motivation to create something themselves. They’re comfortable earning a lot of money working for an American company. As a result, it was hard trying to find a co-founder. Everyone wanted to be an employee and earn a big salary. I pursued the idea alone and I ended up buying some platforms in India to make a white label marketplace software solution and begin the machinery rental platform. My day to day then was a lot about finding and creating the platform. In December of last year, I found a co-founder and we were able to launch the second version of Beelder together. My day to day now starts very early. Often, I start at 2am or even earlier. I like to bike so going at that hour, there’s little to no cars. Believe it or not, at 4:30am there’s already a ton of cars so I prefer to go at 2am. I either go out to bike, run, or to the gym. I then come back home, shower, and get ready. I do intermittent fasting so that helps me not eat breakfast. I arrive to the office at 6am every day. Beelder is my startup, but I also have other businesses that I lead, my family businesses where we sell different products. Daily, I touch basis with every one of the businesses. I start at 7am meeting the management team of each of the businesses. Each meeting lasts 30 minutes and I like to take a space of 30 minutes between each meeting to be able to note down in bullets the actions that I need to take. At 10:30, I finish my meetings. At that time, I look at my emails and who I need to contact. Religiously, I always take a break at noon. I like to cook; I don’t like it when others cook for me so at noon I stop and cook my own lunch. I try to follow the healthy food trends so I’m not tired during the day. Then I take some more time to rest and around 1:30 – 2pm I’m back in the office organizing my Calendly. I’m always open for anyone to contact me if they need help with anything. Likewise, if something came up in the daily meeting, they could schedule a call with me to go deep down on that subject matter. Then around 6pm I go home. At 7pm is when I have my meetings with my Beelder team. My co-founder, my developer, and an intern join in. Why 7pm? It’s the time that we are all free. At 8, 8:30, I’m ready to start my night routine. I stop looking at my cell phone because if I don’t my mind continuous racing. I always stop looking at it one hour before I fall asleep. I try to read before going to bed and if there’s nothing to ready, I share something with my family, I have a wife and four kids, so I have to share with everyone and give each one time with me! At 9:30, I am in bed falling asleep and the routine repeats. This is my routine every day except Sundays. Mondays to Saturdays this routine is always there.
What do you love about what you do?
Everything. I have a session once a week with my psychologist and that’s super important because it keeps my mind organized. I’m always an active person, I always need to look at the problems and work on them. Having problems gives me energy. Every day there are problems to solve and so problems aren’t something I dislike, I love solving them. I’m passionate about seeing the changes, I love seeing the dream idea that was Beelder and seeing it come to reality. I love understanding that people are finding value through our proposition. Those 30 minutes that I take between each meeting helps me refresh my mind meetings and they push me a sense of wanting to learn more about a specific topic. So, every day I'm looking to learn something, and I like that, my whole day is learning something.
What’s the hardest part about what you do?
I think the hardest part of my work is learning how to be a better leader in each distinct role. It’s not the same leading people who are older than me, way younger than me, there are people I manage who are 20 years younger than me and 10 years older than me. You don’t necessarily need to be the expert of an area to be a leader. I lead teams where I’m the one who knows least about the topics, so I need to go and try to learn. This is hard because they get frustrated when they explain a ton of stuff and I don’t understand it. In addition, you’re trying to have everyone be motivated, not just them doing their work because it’s what the boss said. I want us to have internal motivation in all of our teams across our businesses. I want them to feel like if they have the opportunity to lead, they want to do so. This last week I was on vacation and now that I’m back, I can’t wait to have them call me and tell me “You won’t believe this, but while you were away, we managed to do this.” This shows me they have the intrinsic motivation. This is very difficult, keeping that intrinsic motivation in place for everyone. Like I always tell my employees, my job isn’t to motivate each and every one of them, my jobs is to be an example of discipline. I strongly believe once you have discipline down, the motivation follows, and people can lead on their own. That’s why I’m so meticulous on having daily meetings where we look at the results, we come to talk numbers and not talk about the soap opera that aired last night. After the daily meeting we can be friends and talk about whatever.
Tell me about some plans Beelder has for the near future.
Following the trend of 2023, we have been friends of artificial intelligence. We’ve begun to see how we could use AI across our roadmap. There’re limitless opportunities no doubt. Many people are using AI for customer service, for example. As I was talking about with blue-collar workers and projects that are starting for them this coming season, we have an opportunity to help them with AI and help us as well. We want to give them a platform where they can create their own resumes. We started tests on initial Facebook groups and wee sent out a form they fill out to get to know them more, things like background, experience, etc. Through AI, these individuals will then get their own resume with their photo, experience, etc. branded and powered by Beelder. This of course helps us because the resumes end up in the hands of construction management companies so the constructor can contact us to know more about Beelder. At the same time, the worker is happy having a professional resume powered by Beelder. We’ll be launching that product in a month or so.
