All of Washington D. C. is abuzz regarding the impending visit to our nation’s capital of a parade of affordable golf carts Florida arriving straight from the city of Port Charlotte. This parade of golf carts have driven all the way up the east coast of the U. S. A. starting in Florida, crossing into Georgia, then through South Carolina, then through North Carolina, then into Virginia and finally into Washington D. C. Once in the city limits of Washington D. C. the golf carts will head over to the national mall and take a tour of all the great monuments and museums situated in that physical locality.
AFFORDABLE GOLF CARTS FLORIDA FROM PORT CHARLOTTE WILL SOON ARRIVE IN WASHINGTON D. C.
The entire D. C. Auto Geek family and readership base shall be in attendance at the national mall in order to greet this fantastic parade. In fact, this amazing cavalcade will be driving all over the city of Washington D. C. through all four quadrants including South East, South West, North East and North West. This parade might have a problematic effect on the traffic within the city limits of Washington D. C. but sometimes it becomes necessary to throw caution to the wide in order to fully ingest the marrow from the bone of life.
Of course the crown jewel of Washington D. C. is the national mall itself. There the many monuments, museums and government buildings are all on prominent display. The monuments include, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Memorial for World War I I, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and many others. The museums include all the Smithsonian Museums including the Air and Space Museum, the Native American Museum, the African American Museum and many others.
The latest craze in our nation’s capital is for people to drive an automobile around the national mall with a drum pump built into the car itself. Citizens and resident aliens alike are getting in on this cultural phenomenon. The reason as to why this particular craze has taken a hold of the national zeitgeist is a little difficult to pin down. That is, if one were to put his or her finger on the pulse of the population he or she would in fact feel the pulse but he or she might not fully understand what is the cause of that pulse in the first place.
PUTTING A FINGER ON THE PULSE OF THE AUTO DRUM PUMP CRAZE
This is not the first quirky craze to sweep the Washington, D. C. metro area. It is no wonder that this state of affairs happens to be the case. For one thing the Washington, D. C. metro area is a melting pot of different cultures from around the world. Never has such a plethora of Ethiopian restaurants existed sided by side with Vietnamese Pho joints next to standard American fare. Along with this mixture of ethnicities comes a mixing of cultural norms and ideas. This must be the genesis of what we like to call the quirky craze potential inherent in the D. C. metro area.
Once one has a proper appreciation of the quirky craze potential inherent in the D. C. metro area the picture of the situation begins to take its proper form. Just what this proper form turns out to be will naturally differ from person to person and time to time. This is no matter. In fact we here at the D. C. Auto Geek blog revel in the diversity. It is the very essence that make living in D. C. exciting.
Just because I am a D. C. Auto Geek does not mean that I cannot take a ride in a Park City taxi from time to time. Indeed, although the city of Washington, D. C. is my home base (so to speak) I do frequently travel around this country of which my city of origin is the capital. You might say that it is through my many varied travels that my love for the city of Washington, D. C. is both strengthened and honed. This is not to say that the rest of the country is inferior to Washington, D. C. but rather that I have a special affinity towards Washington, D. C. and when I am absent from this city my heart grows fonder as it were.
MY EXPERIENCE RIDING IN A PARK CITY TAXI
You might wonder how a D. C. Auto Geek ended up being in Park City Utah. Actually, it is not that difficult to figure out. Park City, Utah happens to be a posh destination and as such, people from all over the country and the world for that matter are drawn to it in order to enjoy its many varied attractions.
Once one arrives in Park City the question as to how to get around it becomes an issue. This of course, is no matter because there are many options available. As an self described Auto Geek I am partial to transporting myself in an automobile. There are actually only a very limited number of other transportation options that do not involve automobiles. Certainly one can walk around the city and this is actually a great way to do it because it is healthy and carbon footprint neutral. However, if you are like me and prefer to travel by automobile then there really is no better option than to make use of a taxi.
There is a small segment of the Auto Geek community in Washington, D. C. that drive affordable carts Florida all the way from Port Charlotte. Many of the regular car driving Auto Geeks look down upon the golf cart drivers. The logic behind this condescension is that larger, regular cars are more powerful and the golf carts are small and wimpy by comparison. Some golf cart drivers do not accept this lower status, however, and there is a growing protest movement calling themselves the Port Charlotters. Their argument is not without merit. Washington, D. C. is the capital of the leader of the free world. And equality goes hand in hand with freedom according to the liberal credo.
AFFORDABLE CARTS FLORIDA DRIVING AROUND WASHINGTON D. C.
Who can say whether one day golf carts will be considered on par with regular, full sized cars. When we speak of equality we generally are referring to equality before the law. In other words if a golf cart and a regular car had a dispute which was settled in a court of law the law would treat the golf cart and the regular car equally in terms of the application of the law.
Of course we know by many objective qualitative standards a golf cart and a regular car are not equal. For one thing, a car is larger than a golf cart. In this very straight forward measurement we can see that the two vehicles are not equally large. However, equality before (or under) law is not the same thing as physical equality. Many people do not understand this distinction. And many people will choose to remain willfully ignorant of this distinction. The law, however, cannot afford to be biased in this manner and the entire legal system has been structured to weed out this type of bias.
I might be making a rather geeky distinction here but when a person argues that it is impossible to take Park City transportation in and around Washington, D. C. they are incorrect on their face. What do I mean by this? True, one may not take transportation “in” Park City in Washington, D. C. That would be impossible. However, one can take transportation which originates from Park City around Washington, D. C. Do you see the distinction I am making here? In other words, transportation is labeled “Park City” because it originates from that location and not because it is physically located there at this moment in time.
WHERE TO FIND PARK CITY TRANSPORTATION IN WASHINGTON, D. C.
Now it might be difficult (but in no way impossible) to locate this type of transportation within the city limits of our nation’s capital. One simply needs to know where to look. Now that is an easy assertion for me to make (I understand) but when teaching people subtle lessons such as the one I am attempting to impart upon you (gentle reader) at this moment we must start with the easy and work our way methodically towards the ever more complex.
Finding this type of transportation might involve befriending a person who is from Park City. It matters not whether they permanently moved from Park City to Washington, D. C. or are simply visiting and taking in the majestic sights. What matters is that they originated from Park City and are now physically located in Washington, D. C. After meeting this person, the next step is to determine whether they are in possession of transportation. Now just what exactly constitutes a form of transportation is beyond the scope of this blog post. But when it has been determined that the individual in question is in possession of a form of transportation you have now reached the threshold of the topic of this blog post.
One of my favorite autos to geek out about is a golf cart Florida that I sometimes use to drive around Washington, D. C. To clarify, the name of the golf cart is Florida and I procured her from the Port Charlotte area of Florida which is why I christened her with the name Florida. My loyal readers might not be aware of the fact that I name all my autos. If that makes me a geek then so be it. What do I care what you people think of me anyway? I write this blog for my own purposes and not to entertain you people.
Driving My Golf Cart Florida
Sometimes I drive my golf cart from Port Charlotte down to the Washington Mall. Because it is a golf cart I can drive on the side walks and in and around all of the magnificent monuments. I start on Capitol hill near the Capitol building. I then head down Independence Avenue past the Native American museum, the Air and Space museum and the old Smithsonian building. Sometimes I stop and take in a congressional staffer softball game if I happen to be driving my golf cart during softball season.
After the softball game I climb back into Florida and continue on towards the Washington Monument. Once there I drive a couple of laps around the giant white obelisk. I look to the side to see the White House as I circumnavigate and then I slingshot myself in the direction of the Lincoln Memorial. On the way I pass the World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial before reaching the Lincoln Memorial. Then I drive up the other side past the Vietnam Memorial, the White House, the National Archives, the National Museum of Art and the other Smithsonian Museums on that side of the National Mall that presently slip my mind.
What does Good Friday, a body shop Salt Lake City and Washington D. C. have in common? The answer to this question is that these three items are among Jerry the Geek’s favorite things of all time. First of all, I love Good Friday. Although I know that it is a somber occasion I also know that it is the doorstep (so to speak) to Easter Sunday. So in this way, I know that good things are around the corner. Jerry the Geek loves three things (in addition to automobiles) and one of those three things happens to be Easter.
NEXT COMES BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY
The next item on Jerry the Geek’s list of favorites is the body shop. Now this body shop need not necessarily be located in Salt Lake City. If it is then so much the better but really it can be located in any city. The reason why I like body shops so much is because I love cars and I do not like to see cars suffer damage of any kind. This is where the body shop comes in. You see, a body shop is specifically designed to fix any sort of damage inflicted on a car.
Finally, the city of Washington, D. C. tops off Jerry the Geek’s list of favorites. Not only is Washington, D. C. my home but it is also the Capital of the United States of America. There is so much to do and see in this city. People come here from all over the country and the world to see the monuments and government buildings. They also come to see the many museums that make up the Smithsonian including the Air and Space Museum, the various art museums, the Native American museum, the African American museum and many others.
There is no auto body repair Salt Lake City shop in Washington, D. C. Why would there be? All auto body repair shops that are located in Washington, D. C. (to my knowledge) are not affiliated with other states or cities. They all just seem to be auto body repair shops that are located in Washington, D. C. But there might be a need for an auto body repair shop that caters only to people who have transplanted themselves from Salt Lake City, Utah to our nation’s capital. It is conceivable that people who miss their ancestral homeland will want something within Washington, D. C. to remind them of the things they left behind.
AUTO BODY REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL
Just think about it. A person who grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah who went to school or got a job in Washington, D. C. will naturally have a fondness for the place where he or she lived his or her formative years. Washington, D. C. can be an intimidating city for someone experiencing it for the first time. Accordingly, it might be helpful to have something in Washington, D. C. that would serve to remind them of their roots.
What could be better to serve this purpose than an auto body repair shop that is designed to remind this person of the city in which they grew up. And we are not just talking about hanging a picture or two of the Mormon Temple in the waiting area. Nor are we talking about leaving a Book of Mormon on the coffee table amidst the other periodicals. What we are talking about is hiring Salt Lake City natives who both walk the walk and talk the talk. If we are going to do this, it should be authentic.
This is Jerry the Geek and in today’s installment I would like to tell you the tale of how my D. C. auto came to require the services of a collision repair Salt Lake City shop. Actually, the facts of this story are pretty predictable. I drove my car which is registered in the District of Columbia (a. k. a. Washington, D. C.) all the way across country to the great state of Utah. I remember being in good spirits as I entered the Salt Lake City metro area. This good mood however was dashed on the rocks of despair when another car side swiped me causing no small amount of damage.
COLLISION REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY ENTER STAGE LEFT
The operator of the other vehicle was friendly enough. He apologized profusely and accepted the blame for the accident. He told me that he had a friend who owned a collision repair shop located near by and promised me the guy would be fair and honest with me. I took him up on this proposal and made the call for the tow truck. After about a fifteen minute wait (which seemed more like a couple of hours) the tow truck pulled up.
After a short drive I found myself standing in the lobby of the collision repair shop. The mechanic looked my car over and told me I could be up and running by the following day. I was grateful the damage could be repaired in such a short amount of time and I took the opportunity to take in the sights of Salt Lake City. Certainly no visit to Salt Lake City would be complete without seeing Temple Square. So I called up an Uber and in no time at all I stood before the Mormon Temple. I ate dinner got a hotel and the next day returned to the collision repair shop to retrieve my car. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
When giving a speech it is generally advisable to structure the speech so that it includes (1) an introduction, (2) a body shop Salt Lake City and (3) a conclusion. Speeches that are structured in this way will generally provide the audience with an easy to follow format. Having an easy to follow format is important so that the audience can understand what the speaker is saying and follow the logical progression of the speech. The introduction of the speech should set forth in a general way what the speech will be about. It should not take too long as the real meat and potatoes of the speech is in the body.
DELIVERING A SPEECH ABOUT BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY
Suppose a speaker decides to give a speech on the subject of body shops that happen to be located in Salt Lake City, Utah. In the introduction the speaker might say something along the lines of, “Today I want to talk to you about body shops that are located in Salt Lake City.” That is all that is needed to set up the speech. From there the speaker can proceed to the body.
The body of the speech should ideally include three points related to the subject. Three possible points for discussion might include (1) What is a body shop and what type of work is performed there, (2) under what circumstances might one require the services of a body shop and (3) how might one find the best body shop to suit his or her particular needs. Each of these points might include three sub points to flesh them out. Of course this will all depend upon the time constraints for the speech. Three points per topic seems to be the best number in terms of making an impact on the audience. After the body of the speech comes the conclusion which is basically a condensed summary of what was covered in the body.
