    Built a PVC bike rack to carry 3 bikes in the bed. I have a 1UP 2-bike hitch rack on order but it is going to take a while due to backlogs, plus a Prinsu on the way which I will have 1 or 2 additional carriers on. So this is short term solution for the bed, but a permanent solution to stand up the wife and kid's bikes in the garage. I have wall racks for my bikes, so it is nice to finally have an inexpensive solution for the family bikes.

    Used the above link for the build plan, took about 2 hours. Looks real easy but you have to plan some of the final gluing sequences very carefully. I did make one mistake when one of the joints seized up before I had the piece in its correct position. Had to cut it out and reposition with a coupler. The plans call for 4 10' pieces of 3/4" PVC. I have two full 10' pieces leftover. I would advise to only get 3 so you have some extra for mistakes. Also get some 3/4" couplers and extra elbows and T's, also for mistakes. They are inexpensive insurance to avoid another trip to the store.

    I bought clear glue hoping to keep it a clean look, but couldn't find clear primer so used the purple. I am going to end up taking a rattle can to it at some point because it looks messy with the glue joints.

    I believe my Giant Trance has ~2.3" wide tires and they fit snug. Be cautious with the smaller ~2" cuts to not make the wheel section too narrow for your tires.

    Ah. Yes it's reused in the instalation. You can prob buy one from Toyota. Hopefully it's relatively cheap.
    Maybe.

    Installed Frontrunner tracks and crossbars on my Diamondback cover. Drilling through the cover wasn't much fun, but it looks good and it's super solid. My install definitely isn't perfect (not sure how you get perfect on this type of thing), but I'm relieved I didn't totally screw it up.

    Installed a QC3.0 dual usb socket in the back of the console. Definitely had to do some filing of the usb socket assembly to get it to fit right. Overall I am pleased.

    Dear moderators: Please note this is a historical context on origins of Memorial Day. It is non-political. So please do not delete or ban me (again).

    Now having said that, since today is Memorial Day, I thought I would share of the tidbits of knowledge I picked up in one of Civil War history classes I took at Ole Miss.

    One of the stories that floats around in the history world is that after the South’s defeat in the American Civil War, there was still a great rift in the nation after the war. So on April 25, 1866, in an attempt to reconcile their differences, local ladies of Columbus, Mississippi laid flowers on the graves of both Confederate and Union soldiers to remember both sides of the war. This took place in Friendship Cemetery (how appropriate). Now as an interesting side note, various Southern States also have on their calendars (and some still celebrate) Confederate Memorial Day (with various dates in each). But that is completely separate event. A noted poet of the time, Francis Miles Finch, heard what the ladies had done, and wrote a poem called, “The Blue and the Gray.” This perhaps his most famous poem.
    (Also it should be noted that various other locations claim the right of starting Memorial Day, but without the inspiration from the poet. And since this is Mississippi I'm talking about, we’ll take the right of claim.)

    And I think it only fitting, since it is Memorial Day, to repeat his words here today:

    By the flow of the inland river,
    Whence the fleets of iron have fled,
    Where the blades of the grave-grass quiver,
    Asleep are the ranks of the dead:
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgment-day;
    Under the one, the Blue,
    Under the other, the Gray

    These in the robings of glory
    Those in the gloom of defeat,
    All with the battle-blood gory,
    In the dusk of eternity meet:
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgement-day
    Under the laurel, the Blue,
    Under the willow, the Gray.

    From the silence of sorrowful hours
    The desolate mourners go,
    Lovingly laden with flowers
    Alike for the friend and the foe;
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgement-day;
    Under the roses, the Blue,
    Under the lilies, the Gray.

    So with an equal splendor,
    The morning sun-rays fall,
    With a touch impartially tender,
    On the blossoms blooming for all:
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgment-day;
    Broidered with gold, the Blue,
    Mellowed with gold, the Gray.

    So, when the summer calleth,
    On forest and field of grain,
    With an equal murmur falleth
    The cooling drip of the rain:
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgment day
    Wet with the rain, the Blue
    Wet with the rain, the Gray.

    Sadly, but not with upbraiding,
    The generous deed was done,
    In the storm of the years that are fading
    No braver battle was won:
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgment-day;
    Under the blossoms, the Blue,
    Under the garlands, the Gray

    No more shall the war cry sever,
    Or the winding rivers be red;
    They banish our anger forever
    When they laurel the graves of our dead!
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the judgment-day,
    Love and tears for the Blue,
    Tears and love for the Gray.
