Northern Manitoba's loss is our . . .

. . .sunset.

Two days of north winds brought a woodsmoke haze over northeastern Minnesota as wildfires in northern Canada sent down their cloak of atmospheric filter.

Here's what it looked like as the sun set over Ely last night. Would have made a good June photo challenge shot, too. gringrin

Interesting Steve. Unfortunately the north is under siege here in Manitoba and there's no immediate relief in sight. Currently there are sixteen fires buring out of control. The largest one near Flin Flon is alleged to have been started by CN Railway. As you are aware, trains have been responsible for many major fires in Canada's wilderness.

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.
    • seeing I will not have a bonus tag the does are safe at Ripley but a buck will need to be wall hanger before I shoot 
    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer. http://www.gpscity.com/questions?qid=56118
