I need Ford to create a dating app that works with the Ford Pass. All that's missing in the Ranger is a cute female co-pilot.

I just discovered something interesting today.

The Loan Ranger was parked at my daughters, which is 18-miles away in a straight line. I started it with the Ford Pass app on my phone, and my daughter went outside and verified that it was in fact running.

Looking at the app, I can see the address where it's parked, how much gas is in, what the air pressure is, and lock and unlock the doors. It's not like a remote where you have to be so many feet from it for it to work.

I think if someone stole it I could easily find it.

Pretty cool! (y)
Yep. That has potential to be fun but it opens up to potential hacking issues too. I'm not sure if it's all a good thing or not having that kind of remote access. And, they now can track you down if you are behind on payments and it has come time to reposes it. No hiding it behind your buddies house now!

John Deere has had something similar for years. If a warning light comes on the dealer calls wanting to know when you want them to come out or if you want to bring it in and when. It is all monitored on their end somewhere.

Trans America Trail - Oklahoma - Tennessee

August 13th, 2019:

I started the unfinished part of the Trans America Trail (TAT) today. I did the sections from Oklahoma to Port Orford Oregon in June. Now I'm doing the sections from Oklahoma to Tennessee where the TAT starts.

This stream crossing was my first obstacle. There was actually concrete under the water. I decided to throw on my rubber boots and walk past it a little way just to make sure the road was passable before I continued. The water wasn't deep, but it was slippery in the middle.

Check out this bridge. The deck is covered in mud, and there's logs on top of the bridge's structure. Makes me wonder just how high the water actually got!

Just another old bridge...

There were no shortage of water crossings today.

I stopped and talked to two TAT riders that were riding across country on the Trans America Trail. These guys actually loaded their bikes up in a rental truck, hauled them to North Carolina, and started heading west from the Atlantic Ocean. At the point where they were right here, they still had 14-15 days of riding ahead of them. It's hard to get Ford Ranger guys to show up in Ohio just for a weekend trail ride. LOL :icon_twisted:

I saw some open range cattle today, and a field with more horses than I could possibly count. I really wish I would have stopped and taken a photo.

Miles:

Today I drove 368 miles. 192 of those miles were off pavement.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Oh cool. I was due for another period of living carefree through Jim’s adventures.

I’m deployed to the Middle East. What’s everyone else’s excuse?
