      Got the Sierra started but the charger I used overnight gave an error, probably a dead cell, and the money light is on with 3 codes for ABS issues. Could have been from the low voltage but I'm...

      Battery load tester and some replacement blades for my weed trimmer. Definitely prefer these to the bump feed line, and even the line segments that go in the pivoting heads. :yes:

      😲 I'm more surprised that you remembered us after all this time! lol Glad to see you're still kicking :biggrin:

      Let the EXT stretch its tires today. (I guess that's the equivalent of legs right?) Buddy got moved into his new house, and now that they live an hour and a half away, no more short notice...

      Yesterday, since it was pretty cold (-30c), worked on the drive issues on the snowblower. The friction wheel was fine however, this thing is equipped with some sort of clutch or limited slip...

      Well I said fk it and put some miles on the newest sled. Wish my kids were here but they are scattered amongst the area with their friends. Had a blast as usual.

      Got a HVAC guy out this morning. Woke up to 55° in the house. Blower motor is shot. He was able to change the speed to get it to work, but we are spending $755 to have a new motor installed...

      Was only planning to measure my ladder up against the tree out back to see if I could reach those tip top branches easily, and make sure the ladder felt stable at that height. Was looking into...

      In 2 words.... FOAM CANNON!! :laugh: Since it was in the low 80s today, and my driveway is decently shaded after work, took out the pressure washer and gave the EXT a much needed bath. Some...

      During the morning commute, ended up behind a slow driver in the left lane, who did the OSB rear window mod on his F150 👎

      :undecided: The battery load tester is a great idea, and might come in handy for me. I've had my Ryobi riding mower for 6 summers now, and the last few times I ran it, I couldn't finish mowing...

      Just surviving the "piercing cold" out this way. Worst ambient we saw was -24c but we did have some decent wind over the weekend that had a -36 windchill. Still, absolutely nothing out of the...

      Getting adjusted again to having a newborn in the house, and not having a solid night's sleep. I'm dragging pretty good today. I still have my brother-in-law's Element in the garage. Got the darn...

      Complained directly to Amazon (getting past their chatbot to a real person was horrendous!) with a link to the video and they refunded the item even though I didn't even ask or need that. Nice...

      Yesterday, finally replaced the fuel line from the tank to the fuel rail as it rusted out just above the transfer case. Went relatively well except that I again had problems inserting it onto the...

      It should work fine... I use a dedicated unraid low power storage server for all my media which feeds 3 fire tv units via kodi/sql database. I don't game or transcode files. All my videos are...

      Yesterday, after a quick run to the grocery store after work, was back in the yard to break down the branches for disposal. Got the majority of them done before running out of daylight again...

      Brings back memories of some 45 years ago when I was a "tree man" by profession.

      We got some cold weather coming after the rain and sleet tomorrow. The classic pinko news channel blames climate change for "piercing cold" we got coming.... we are going to hit -25 to -27 for a...

      I've been out of the midwest for 20 years now, if I was subjected to that kinda weather at this point, I would probably die in 5 minutes, even if I was bundled up head to toe 🤣 When I got home...

      Yep, that sounds about right but modern sleds are better, albeit more complicated when they do break. Went for a quick ride on the trails. A bit rough as we need more snow for proper grooming...

      All I can add here is that, at most, we can agree to disagree. Anything beyond that, we (the staff) bring it back into line. We have rules and we enforce them. Thankfully, violations are very...
