    Ouch, walk like a old person.
    Took this winter off from jogging a few times a week. Paying for it this Spring after starting up again, aches and pains, walk like I hurt. Hiking somewhat off trail yesterday with Repo to camp o/n. Ended up taking the long way as I couldn't find dry ground after finding a small log to cross a creek on. So had to go back across it, ended up loosing my balance and jumping to clear the small log and it's limbs. So, wet shoes, socks, at least I had shorts on. Wet feet, too cool to dry anything o/n, so wet feet again today, temps were only 32 this AM, so my feet weren't stumps while fixing breakfast and packing up. Got home, all gimpy from falling all the log and the hike of course, little under two hours yesterday, little over an hour out this AM. Snow patches on the Forest Service road home. Was trying to avoid them yesterday is why I tried the way I went. Needed some trail time anyway.
    Repo had a great time, at camp he found some bones and had a great time working on those and running all around, he had a blast.

    Evening..

    Chili burgers down the hatch.

    Just got done doing the alignment on the trailer. Went from about 2° neg camber to 1/2° Neg camber. Allowing for resettlement I figure another 1/2° neg so about 1° After a few trips. So I should be good for another 20 years on that part..

    Sounds like a fun day. For me I am off to HD and pick up 18 10' 4X4's. Building a rain/butterfly garden at our church school.

    Been working filling up my woodshed for the coming season, two rows finished, so 40% done already, still using the woodstove. Would be nice to have the remaining wood out of the way as it is all the way to one side, over half a row high, so a task to move if I went that route. Trying to get ahead of the game, so I can start cutting trees this Spring. Had a nice snag spotted, but appears to be too rotted as with my axe was able to chop into it 4" maybe and the wood was bad, inner part may be ok, but splitting away the rotten wood off of rounds makes for hard work. Did find another smaller Sugar Pine close by, it appears to be ok or at least acceptable. Need to scout for more trees, but know where some Lodgepole Pine is, but need quite a bit of snow to melt so I can get up high to it, close to where I camp at a deer camp.
    Got both my motorcycles washed, will take the dirt bike in to get valves adjusted as it has enough hours now since I bought it new three years ago. Can list the dual sport on Craigslist to sell, been dragging my feet to list it, dont know how I'll handle the money if it sells.

    So last week I purchased a new lawnmower to replace my 15+ y/o Husqvarna. The Husqvarna served me well over the years, no problems what so ever. Ran great, cut nice..etc. Over the past 2 years I noticed the deck starting to rust and just some other little problems. Ok, this is going to the curb.
    On a side note: where I live you can put anything out on the curb and sooner or later someone will come and take it. That's most convenient way :)
    I purchased a Craftsman w/a Honda engine and self propelled. That was a mistake.
    It didn't propel very well...not at all like the Husky.
    Returned it and bought another Husky.
    The moral of this is if something has treated you well and it needs to be replaced...stick w/what works.

    The only problem that I have found is that when I find something exceptional, and I need to replace it, they no longer make it.

    Just got done washing, drying, and waxing the 66 Impala, this used to be fun! :rolleyes:
    Hey, at least I got it all done in one day. :D

    I have a old Monkey Ward mower I bought used from a lady over 20 years ago. Too bad it is so hard to keep the wheels on it. Old style as you can adjust the throttle. I usually idle around to hack off weeds around the place. Had to replace the handle bars and the throttle cable then. May have to recycle it so I can move on to the more modern stuff and quit trying to save pennies. Just hate tossing a good motor.

    Sell the extra motorcycle and Monkey Ward mower both on Craigslist and buy a new mower. Easy Peasy way to solve both situations.

    Finally listed the KLR650 on CL today. No emails yet. Value must have changed, as I'm asking $600 more.
