    Default Those GM engineers don't get enough credit

    From my last generation Burb to my newest one, I've really appreciated some of the features they've added.

    Like the interior light override button. When it's activated, no lights will turn on inside when you open the doors. I call it the "Drive-in movie theater" button. When I take my kids to the drive in it's nice to have that button because I keep the barn doors open in the rear. The way I cancelled the interior light in my old Burb was I took a credit card and jammed it into the door sensor in the rear. ;D

    And today, I was getting ready to clear the rig for my Home Depot run. When I tilted the second row seats I heard some strange rattling.

    Now the center of the second row has a hole where the seat belt buckle comes thru. Ah **** I thought, I bet a bunch of crap fell down there. My two little monsters leave and drop crap all over the place. I figure maybe whatever was trapped in there was stuck forever.

    Lo and behold, I discovered that the bottom of the seat is actually velcro. I was able to just pull open the bottom and pull out the crap.

    I found some additional goodies that I know didn't come from me, it must have been the previous owner's kids.

    Some Lego's, a dollar bill, and a Gameboy Advance game. :D

    Kind of like cleaning out from under the cushions on the couch! The last time I was in Oregon, I noticed a few "drive in" movies. It's been awhile since I've been to one though!
