Useful Units of Measurement

Forget cubic feet. Who’s hauling 34.6 cubic feet of anything? I want to know, can my car hold four full-sized tires? Because that’s useful.

My wagon holds them so neatly, I only needed a little padding to keep them from moving around. It’s extremely convenient to carry 4 tires and still fit both kids in the back seat and my basic stuff for work.


On that topic, roof boxes should be measured in “pairs of skis” or something; again, I have no idea about cubic feet up there. All I know is I can fit 7 pairs of normal adult-sized skis. That’s a useful number to know.

I’m ready for winter! You can see it came anyway, I’m a bit behind.
