Oh, well then by all means carry on Sir!  :popcorn:

However assuming I get around to using my last 48 hours of vacation for actual vacation and not random things I wouldn't be against a roadtrip to Nate's area for some BBQ.

I?m sure we could coax Bobby south for some ?I hate you? meal and Makers.

Not even good BBQ and I hate you meals would make me go to Chicago. I detest cities... When I go to visit family in Southern Mississippi I drove down the middle of the state to avoid Milwaukee and Chicago.

However thanks for the invite.

if I could figure out the pressure canning time, I would can some up for you and send it your way.

Yea better not forget to send some this way.

Leave it the way it is and get it running. No need to swap transmission at this point. However if the cost to fix is more than you wish to put on the line, then sell it and look for a new project, like the XJs you want to build. How many headaches have you had since this project started and how many do you think you're going to continue to have whilst fighting the timelines?

You can potentially part it out or sell whole and cover the cost of purchasing and most upgrades/fixes on the potential XJs or a new project, or fix Sarge or get something you need down on the farm.

the army calls that sensor to shooter.  they get the enemy to reveal their artillery and air defense pieces with a decoy while they (we) have artillery pieces layed in wait/preperation to destroy them or observation birds to mark their locations for bombers or other fixed win aircraft to destroy them.

I know this.

Yeah, ?we?re not sure where the SAM sites are, lets roll through and see if they shoot at us?

Can you think of another guaranteed way to find things that people want to stay hidden until they shoot a flying telephone pole at you?

He wants to go to West point. I asked him what he planned for a career after the Army. He looked at me with a confused expression. "Dad, Being an officer in our Army is all I plan to do."

Nothing wrong with an XJ. You appear to have some mechanical/welding abilities ( :grin:) and I'd assume the kid can turn a wrench as well so any problems that pop up could be addressed pretty quick. What I'd do assuming I was getting another XJ (which I want to do...)
 
1. weld some reinforcement plates along the unibody

2. liberally spray wd40 and/or breakfree on pretty much every nut/bolt within eye sight., let it sit for a bit then do it again.

3. Rip the carpeting out and check the floor pans for holes or weld in new floor pans.

4. Prepare to replace the plugs/wires, actual oil change and maybe other fluid swap.

Wanna take care of my Jeep for me while you're at it?

Also it wasn't today but yesterday after work, I found out my Jeep has a block heater. Apparently the previous owner never used it either as it was still ziptied up in a corner of the engine bay.

I haven?t had breakfast yet, you two need to warn people before we walk into things like this early in the morning......

You think before breakfast is bad? I've only had 1 cup of coffee over 2 days..




Remember walking (and falling) on those things in Southern Afghanistan???

Yea, I'm done with rocks!

Bobby,
You sound like some safety Nazi

You're an Airborne grunt, act like one! ;-)

Ladder in the bucket is fine!

Probably cause I'm a Safety Trainer and Fall Protection is part of my purview. However, I can say that during the last blizzard I was shoveling dense wet heavy snow off the roof in windy slippery conditions.. So maybe I don't have much leeway either..

For the record, I can still PLF and walk away... TRN maybe not so much.

I seem to remember you bought climbing gear, I also saw trees. But I also see a roof that could have a fall arrest system mounted to provide a safe and effective system to facilitate a safe working environment for someone to paint and for further upcoming maintenance.

Ah cool, didn't realize there was a pic approval process. Must only be for pics hosted off the forum server, not linked from elsewhere (like tapatalk)?

It's possible, I just saw by the pics it said "Approve All" by the groups of photos so I approved them for you.

No, lol  :tongue:

Honestly, haven?t thought that far ahead. My opinion is there?s a market there though, I will be addressing the GLO product line in stages. Some stuff will no longer be available (once I fire sale some inventory) and more parts will then be added. There will be many conversations between now and where I end up so maybe we should discuss more. I know you were wanting bumpers, but I?m sure there are other weak spots to address as well on that Jeep.

Alright then. I'll be waiting for some news.

Well on Tuesday I paid $620 for my Jeep's service, then declined when the dealership tried to charge me $470 for labor to install a new radiator. I went to O'Reilly yesterday and bought a radiator for $160. So that's my last couple days.

Here I thought you were getting certified for a vacation activity. Are you volunteering on a local fire Dept or anything?

Nope no vacation destination for me. I pitched an idea to the VP, now President, of the Charity I'm a part of and promptly forgot about it. He eventually got it all approved and I'm one of the first 7 to go get certified. As for a local fire department... maybe down the line once I get more training and practice.

Got PADI certified many years ago. Picked up some used gear a couple years back and got a new rescue tank. No cold water for me.

Thinking about buying my own used equipment once I get my card.

Ya know, Special Forces runs a dive school out of Key West. I used to go down there to provide the Halo platform for 10,000-14,000 foot jumps into Shark DZ.
Guy like you could make it through SF training...Heck I did the hard part, and I'm just a pilut!
Just sayin...

I knew a guy who was there as a student then an instructor. I may be passing this course but that's a whole new level of Scuba.

Snowfall Bobby?

Yea snow...


Yeah, Bobby's area and north a bit got pounded with snow over the weekend.  Some places saw 33" of a very heavy dense snow.

The 33" of snow isn't far from me. I'm sure I'm a little over 29" but I'm not measuring down to the exact amount. I was anticipating having to go into work yesterday but they shut the company down. The city and the surrounding areas declared snow emergencies and said only drive for emergencies, especially since there were multiple roofs collapsing from the snow loads. So I got to stay home and study for Scuba course this weekend.


I knew they got hit, but 29" is almost beyond belief.
Kentucky having received that much snow (Over a 2 year period) would have sunk into the depths, never to e seen or heard from again!

I can send you a couple pics if it'll help bring the fun to life for you.
