Why YSK: An infection of Emerald Ash Borers (EABs) can kill an otherwise healthy ash in 2-5 years. The loss of ash trees can impede ecosystems, bring down home values or disrupt food webs. During bad weather, sick or dying ashes can pose a safety risk if they fall or drop branches. And with the loss of these trees comes an increased risk of landslides and flooding, both of which tree roots help to prevent.

If you are a home owner with ash trees, contact local arborists immediately, and inquire about your options for vaccinating or treating your ashes to protect them. Signs of infection are hard to spot before it is too late, and treatments are only effective prior to intense infection.

There are quite a few brand names for EAB pesticides, although they all use the same 10 or so active ingredients. There are a variety of ways to apply them to ash trees, depending on the product. Some are applied to the soil, typically either by drenching the ground around the tree with a water and pesticide solution, or by injecting the solution a few centimeters below ground near the base of the tree. Either way, the compounds will be slowly taken up by the tree and spread throughout it.

Some compounds can also be applied to trees as a spray. These tend to be less preferred, since the chemicals can easily drift around while spraying, affecting unintended species. Interestingly, one of the approved sprays is permethrin, which is also effective at repelling mosquitos!

A relatively new technology, tree injectors, allow the direct injection of anti-EAB pesticides into a tree's inner tissue. Trunk injected pesticides work faster, much like IV drugs work faster than pills in humans. In studies, this method has been the most successful, however it is more expensive. Some municipal governments are reimbursing tree owners for part of the cost of vaccinating their ashes. Montreal West, for example, will reimburse tree-owners up to $250.

To read more about how EABs kill trees, what the signs are, why EABs are such a problem in North America and what other methods scientists are testing to fight the epidemic, read this article from McGill University's Office for Science and Society- https://www.mcgill.ca/oss/article/epidemic-facing-ash-trees

I've been very fortunate to have enjoyed a lot of amazing cars in my life at a young age. Each one I try my absolute best to enjoy it like there's no tomorrow.

In this case, I wanted to make sure I enjoyed my Ferrari California T to the maximum possible. So I decided to embark on a 12,000 mile road trip around North America.

Here's the route I took:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/194260524@N03/52375714520/in/album-72177720302288772/

Here's some photos of the car along the way:

The route went like this:

NJ->Philadelphia->Chicago->Nashville->New Orleans->Austin->Santa Fe->Las Vegas->Tijuana (Mexico)->San Diego->Marina Del Rey->Santa Monica->Big Sur->Pebble Beach/Monterrey->Half Moon Bay->San Francisco->Bandon->Portland->Seattle->Vancouver(Canada)->Prince George (Canada)->Kittimat (Canada)->Hyder Alaska->Banff/Jasper (Canada)->Glacier National Park Montana->Salt Lake City

I did this over the span of 2 months and 7 days. I had a carry-on suitcase, 2 backpacks, a set of golf clubs, camping gear, and a camera bag that all fit in the car. When I wasn't driving, I was either playing golf, hiking, camping, or working. I stayed at hotels where possible / required and camped when not working.

Some stats:

Top Speed: 185 MPH

MPG Avg: 20

MPG Max: 31

Miles Driven: 12,843

Issues Faced:

The only issue I faced was in Kittimat Canada where someone tried to rip the emblem off the grill (and failed, fortunately). Otherwise, people were respectful and enjoyed seeing a bright red and dirty Ferrari in places they normally wouldn't ever see one

Edit:

I got the car serviced in Seattle as sort of a half way mark

I got pulled over 5 times, only 1 ticket.
