    Still going to ride the RPV's to failure and see if they're worth it.

    What better environment to test out their "1,000 Hour" salt spray than our lovely winter roads?

    That is very cool. How much length do they add... now that I am wheeling pretty hard I worry about tearing valve stems off.

    Work has really dragged with the manager epsconding to Mexico for a week. I have some forced PTO coming up and he knows he'll be stressed, that's why he went:rofl:

    That and the whole month seemed to be non-stop training. We had our 2 year Red Cross renewal with extra stuff thrown in this time. Glad I have the training and hope I never have to use it, but man it was long.

    Supervisor training on the other hand has been coming in handy and the people were nice.

    Much to my wife's chagrin, I'm all caught up and done laughing in the living room.

    Definitely eyeing one of those heaters now that my next oil change is coming up. Should probably get some Fluid Film at least on before winter. I kept procrastinating on getting the Woolwax kit.

    Doesn't look like much.Screenshot_20231013-202737.png I would have honestly gone this route first if they were available back then. It's a good way to see if you'll like the ones I showed you at Tigerton without making a permanent change.

    Saw this at Ace awhile back when purchasing a mole trap. Kinda laughed because it looks like a ridiculously ineffective method.

    Wake up in the night thinking here's your potential solution to camping with an axle dump....

    File this under Bad Financial Advice subsection Redneck Ingenuity....

    Going back to bed.

    Cool offer-and thanks. I want to make my own... and even with the price reductions I cannot afford that (Well, priorities. But my wife would come unhinged...) On the upside she looked at the picture and said go for it.

    It’s amazing how location can effect snowfall. I live close to the lake 25 miles away. The snow belt!
