Meet BlueBert

After what seems like WAY too long and WAY too much irritation, I now have a car again.

Meet BlueBert, our new '08 Element:

In all of his 42 mile old glory (and that's after the 20 mile drive home):

It's beyond weird to drive a car that is so similar to what I'm used to, but has so many little changes.

A million thank you's to my parents (specifically mom) who let us use her Accord for an indefinite amount of time. They are wonderful beyond necessary and I don't know what I'd ever do without them.

Tomorrow the new E will haul its inaugural bike haul to the Cherry Creek Time Trial.

Do those work well for hauling bikes? Do you have to remove the front wheel?

They work awesome for hauling bikes. We rarely remove the front wheel with 2 bikes in there and we've fit 3 bikes and 3 people inside the car with only removing front wheels. It's the best bike hauling/car camping car I've ever owned.
