Rafters all up. Making sure they are all square to the ridge beam and nailing them in.  Then hurrciane straps on each tail and then snap a line and cut them off at 14.75 inches to get the overhang correct.

Then I’ll start the lookout rafter and barge rafter construction on the gable ends.  Then 23/32 sheathing.  Then order the R panel roofing to match the houses.

Here’s where I left it today. All the rafters are cut and a little more than half hung. Ran out of Simpson rafters hangers so I hope the rest I ordered are in when I go to HD tomorrow.

Let me throw this out there.

In tribal Africa they still had a two parent household.  Who taught them to be baby daddies and hoes.  The liberal left.

Now,  why is it that Asians come here with no language skills and smoke white kids in school and bulld empires in business?  Work ethic and strong family bonds and respect for elders.

Harvested tomatoes again this morning. It’s getting out of control.

Harvested about 25 lbs to go with the 15 pounds I already had on the counter. 

Time to break out the pressure canner and jars.  18 quarts of tomatoes up.

All we need to know is right here in Romans 1:24-32 

Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

You could always just buy a new 2021 Suburban with the 3.0 duramax in it. Then you have it all plus warranty. It’d be like being back in the army, just drive it till it breaks and drop it off for someone else to fix. ;)

This one is 23ft




It’s barely y’all enough at full extension. The crappy part is standing the beam upright from one end while it’s laying on its side. All while standing on an 8ft ladder. Don’t want to over rotate and have it go off the front side.

Anyway. Two down

To avoid re gearing, 40s would be the ticket.  .614 final drive (second OD ) with 4.88 has you turning 1636 at 65mph

Yes its expensive.  I offer no apologies.

Done, if you have the funds then the max swap is the cats arse.  You already know what its like to chase gremlins and a 12v swap would be like a battalion of gremlins.

Ive said this before and I’ll say it again.  LLY Heads and injectors on a LB7 block and LB7 ECM/FICM allows plug and play.  64mm turbo and basic tuning with 30 overs and you have a phenomenal machine with little stress on components.  As Ken pointed out you will have to regear.  Or get really really big tires.

It wasn't a dig at Shawn. I was just referring to my other trailers.

I didn't go all in, mainly because I'm not ready for a dually yet. This one is 22,500gvw. 10k axles. Only 20' plus 5' dovetail... but the wedge ramps make it a useable 25 footer.

Local company has Kaufman build them to their specs and put their stickers on, and still a couple grand cheaper. It's basically a 26k trailer w/10k axles.

Funny you mention that Dave
....not 15....8
Yeah that would get you pulled over in Texas by DPS.  26000 max cgvwr including truck before CDL required.  They usually pounce on the guys with dual wheel trailers and no DOT sticker

In any event, nice trailer, nice score.  I almost bought a 40 ft one like that when I had the dually.  Friend was selling it cheap but I didn’t want to hassle with the class A

I’m going to assume just the tip, which is what I would think I would want since I usually take the temp in the thickest part of the meat.

This will really come in handy for the bird at thanksgiving.  I’ll know the thigh temp and breast temp and can take action to slow the breast cook down

Yup.  Gonna report back.  It should monitor air temp and 3 separate probes, that I can use to monitor meat.  Each will have a separate alarm for when it reaches the desired temp.  No more running back and forth sticking a thermometer in the meat.
