I posted a video a week or two ago getting a car wash in my Gen 2 Honda Ridgeline trying to show how the hood wiggles like Jell-O in the air dryers. It wasn’t really clear, so I thought this time I should bring my real camera, and try to get a shot from outside. It turned into a little, getting a carwash vlog thing or something. I started editing to the music and then well you get this.
As you can see here, the hood does get to jumping and jiggling pretty bad. I don’t think it’s harmful at least for now and probably what you can expect having an aluminum hood. I do wonder though over the years if the aluminum will get brittle from the motion. Only time can tell though at this point.

I had my action cam with me with new upgraded lens (4.35mm) and decided to grab a car wash since the weather was above freezing. Figured it might be something interesting to shoot in slow motion to test the cam out.
It’s 720P footage and doesn’t look great but may be interesting to someone out there who finds an SJCAM M10+ for cheap. Also at the end as I drive through the dryers you can see the jello-like Honda Ridgeline aluminum hood going nuts.
Footage was filmed 720p120, slowed to 720p24. LUT applied in Premiere Pro.
Maybe this will inspire someone to get an action cam and go film something more interesting in slow motion…
Emboldened by a thread over on the Ridgeline Owners Club, I decided that we should finally replace our old mattress and go bigger to a queen size. It seemed like a good chance to document the journey and put together a video for other people wondering about the capabilities of the G2 Ridgeline.
On the expressway we were going a little over 70 and there was no risk of the mattress flying out or really anything bad happening. The ratchet straps were crossed from the front tiedown to the rear to get around the fact that the RL’s cab side tie downs are VERY far forward. I think if you tried to strap straight accross there’s a good chance the mattress would slip out from the front strap. With the mattress and box spring tucked into the bad behind the cab it is perfectly secure. This is only possible due to the fact that the Ridgeline’s bed is a full 60″ wide between the bedwalls. Let’s see you do that in any other midsize truck!
Things don’t always go as planned. If Android 4.3.3 was good enough for my pappy and his pappy before him, then DAMNIT it oughta be good enough for Milwaukee!

“Did you mean ‘fireworks fireworks’?”
This is a short clip I shot during the Unity Point Health Red White & Boom fireworks show in Peoria, IL. It’s the largest fireworks show in Illinois.
There’s really no reason to watch this.
Last night we were bamboozled by some incorrectly forecasted swirling plasma. The National Weather Service declared yesterday that due to a particularly strong solar flare, the Northern lights would be visible as far South as the Illinois/Wisconsin border. We took a chance and packed up the truck and headed as far North as we could get before dark.
I just bought a new 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I thought this web browser was a pretty cool little addition so I figured I’d make a video showing it off quick!
Expect more videos to come as I totally love this truck. Not only that, they’ll be real videos because I’m putting out my hard earned dinero towards car payments, rather than the million videos from people who got to borrow the truck for 3 days.
