Yeah but half the fun is the project of converting it. Good points though. I just think it would be fun to have a small camper to use rather than a whole RV. I already camp in my truck plenty and have done sub zero temps in it.
Multiple vendors make photochromic lens that are supposed to do what you are asking about. I have heard mixed opinions on them. Personally I just carry a low light lens for later in the day and swap as needed.
I was thinking about the beer more and it's actually the one thing that my friends and I usually go cheap on purpose. Not sure how it exactly came about but it's pretty much become a tradition for us to drink PBR, probably because it was the cheapest keg in college, but that's what we still drink now.
When my friends and I rent we will spend extra to ensure that our place has a private hot tub. It's nice to be able to have beer and people out there without having to worry about small children coming by.
I usually buy a day of lessons when I travel but I have stopped doing that as much. I have gotten to a point where I want to work on very specific things and unless I know for sure the instructor I am going to get can help on that, then it's not worth the money.
I don't think anyone made them pay for an addition to the house. I don't know what the settlement accounted for but depending on how much you make them just paying for missed wages could result in a significant amount of additional money since that money isn't taxed. If they paid $100,000 for missed wages that's roughly $30,000 the recipient gets that would have gone to taxes. I took it more as a joke making light of a bad situation.
