Good Morning DieselRam...
Cloudy but only down to 73 overnight...few showers yesterday and 50/50 today they say. Could reach 90 and feel like 105 if the sun peeks out.
Two far away repo's for Tuesday...2nd one I knew was heavy. Opened it at the lot...FOUR HYABUSA'S (Suzuki GSXR 1300) inside!!!
Supposed to have a 16x40 for tomorrow, if it's dry enough..

Never made it to 60, may get there today. May be rain free over the weekend. May get around to doing something. Maybe not. On plan C trying to do something about my trailer hitch on the 1st gen. Someone hit it, left a big crease in my bumper as well. The hitch insert will only go half way in. Tried to find a replacement, but nothing affordable. Looked into a mini belt sander to dress out the high spot inside the tube, but the only one I could find that could reach far enough inside was as expensive as the hitch. So, rummaging through my tool box I found my little sanding drums and an extension that could work.

Good morning DR, typical day for July, real feel near 90 and Tboomers around. But don't worry, in 6 months we will be complaining about the cold. May go to KnoxVegas today

Good Morning DIeselram...
Overcast and 73 with rumors of mostly getting wet.
Hope not...We put the 16x40 off till Monday.
Feels like a swim just walking to the truck.
Revived an ole husqy riding mower yesterday.. One I pieced together 10 years ago...
Husqvarna frame that had a blown engine and 18hp Kohler from a craftsman that fell off a truck and broke the frame.
I had thought the fuel pump was going out but found a crack in the fuel line...tank on the rear... so replaced them all.
Then the starter was stuck cause it hasn't been cranked since last summer.
Running now.
I like small engine work... Simple stuff.

On the clock today Hoping all stays quiet.
Taking next shift off just cause I can I guess cause it's probably gonna be wet and the little lady will be working.
Vacation days have to be scheduled before the end of the previous year.
You don't have to take them when scheduled, but you probably won't get another chance. Already passed on 2 in May.
Looking forward to 2 in September. Might go walk on the beach.

Good morning DR, cooler and breezy today.....80ish for the high, real feel is near 90. Ever present Tboomers here and there. Pleasant day in KnoxVegas, Harvey Donaldson joint, Famous D*ves BBQ and a host of other meaningless places to waste money.....Last stop was a local chain type Italian place with Butterfinger Cheesecake. Food coma time. Not a bad day

Good Morning Vietnaaaa....er....DieselRam !!!
Trying to get crunked..
Overcast, just showered a little. Radar shows a good sized batch coming our way.
Looks like the 16x40 might have to wait a couple more days..
Still need a shop to tinker in on rainy days..
Could go look at a truck camper I found 100 miles away.. Looks like a good deal at $3200.
Short bed model so it would fit behind the tool box and fuel tank in the dually.
Is that a good idea? I've never owned one.
Had one on my brain for a while now. Wonder if I'd use it if I had it..
I like the idea, wandering RV nomad.
