    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Been scrubbing and keeping pain at bay with properly spaced beers. Getting some help from my robot doesn't hurt either.

    6:30- 26.4 FC & 0.4 CC
