Morning everyone. Man I am sore! Two days ago we had a crazy storm rip thru here. They are calling it a microburst. All I know is that it dumped a few inches of rain in just a few minutes and the wind was so strong that it almost flipped my moms escape whilr I was in it. The wind tore thru our town and toppled hundreds of trees everywhere. One of the worst hit areas was the Silverwood theme park/rv park. Tons of rvs are badly damaged from trees landing on them. Luckily no one was injured badly that I have heard of.

Once I cleared our road of trees my dad and I took our saws his tractor and my truck and helped in recovering people and their rvs out of the rv park. I have never seen a storm like this up here.

I've been in a few microbursts, myself Micah. I understand what you're saying. Luckily for me, the microbursts I was caught in were nowhere near the intensity you guys experienced.

Kudos to you and your dad for helping out at the RV park.

Good morning Idaho! Had all of last week off, after screwing my back up the Saturday before. Ug. Not a good way to get off work for a week.

Hi everyone. Went to my exercise class "Open Gym" today. I've been a bit sore lately, so Jenn and I cut today's session short. She tweaked her back, and since she had a physical therapy appointment this afternoon, a short workout session seemed appropriate. Jenn is doing fine, but she'll be sore tomorrow.

I hope you loosen up soon. I know how it is to be sore Craig. In reference to the film camera I was planing on hanging onto it in case I decide to shoot some film.

I still have an "Brownie" that my grandparents gave to me a long time ago. Film processing/printing places are getting harder and harder to find.

I'm replacing the truck's fuel pump tomorrow after exercise class. Jennifer and I are going to my friend's house. He's going to help me (meaning he and Jenn will probably do most of the work) replace the fuel pump. He's done a few already, I haven't done any and we're heading out of town Thursday. I'm going to clean the VSS. Hopefully, we can get these done and have no more fuel leak.

That they are Craig. Thats one big reason I am retiring it. Only a few places near me will still process film. I need to get all of the rolls I currently have used developed. Hopefully you wont run into any issues replacing the pump.

Actually, Ben didn't have many issues, other than dropping tools and bolts into the valley. He has a magnetic pick-up tool and was able to easily retrieve the dropped items. From start to finish, it took us a little less than three hours. I say "us" loosely. Ben did most of the work. There isn't much space for more than one person to do this replacement.

This isn't the first time Ben has done repairs for me that I was unable to do myself. And this time, I didn't have the necessary swivels and wrench size (1.25") to this, so if I had tried to do this on my own, I'd have been stuck about half way into the process. Ben's experience (he's done two or three fuel pump replacements already) and toolbox exceeded my own for this procedure.

I think I'm going to have to grill another steak for him.

Thats good Craig. I will be running my truck over to the shop soon for its tune-up. The COP's sit under the fuel rails. add to that the leveling kit and the fact I am short it will be easier to let a shop do the work.
