Cool memory. I had similar experience with a souped up old power wagon and a gfs dad. When I have it some gas and spin the tires he proceeded to make me afraid for my life if I ever drove Daphne around like that. On came the uncovering teenaged sweating and trying to act inboard. Good times!

​​​​​​On another note an interesting experience relayed by a friend has been making me think: he had an f250 and changed his pitman arm when he raised it to an offset arm from an F350. He said his turn radius improved dramatically. He said it seemed about half an inch longer than the f250. Wonder if anyone had had a similar experience?

Maybe I'll post it in SD forum, but I'm literally drinking my morning coffee so...

That would be interesting to know about the pitman arm. I have not heard of such, but I have also not had to change one out either.

Morning everyone, college gameday is such a beautiful thing. Hope everyone is off to a great weekend!

Dang Northern California - Southern Oregon forest fires. It's so smoky you can't really get out and do anything. Can't see the local mountains and the Sun is just a dim yellow disk in the sky. Struggling to keep the lawns green. This is getting old fast, well over a month now.

Done venting ...

Weather report last night predicted winds from the SE. Hopefully that will push the smoke out to sea. No offence meant to Charley Tuna.

Jim, I can only imagine. We are getting smoky haze all the way down by me in South Dakota form the Montana fires. I am guessing your situation is way worse since you are much closer to the burn site.

Maybe start a new thread? You'll get more views that way.

Was hoping to flush the zf6 and transfer case today, now I'm puzzled on my delimma. EngineOil came in a 5 gal bucket, still have 1 gal left, not enough empty containers to put 4 gal of used oil in, nothing in the house or garage but 1 empty bleach jug to put the rest of the fresh oil in to drain my used oil pan into the 5 gal bucket to drain zf6 & transfer case..... this needs more coffee and after church solution.

along with the girls with guns posts...

those are great pics of your girls! I need to get mine back out to the range. We've been fishing more than anything lately. I've kinda fallen out of the shooting spirit.

For that oil, do what I do and drain it in a 1 gallon pail, plug the hole, go dump it in a spot in the backyard that isn't too obvious. Repeat with the other 4 gallons. Grass will grow like crazy there after a year though so get the weedwhacker ready!

This morning did come too quickly, fall did too. We hardly had a summer this year and now it's down to 52 overnight. Whew!

Guess i better get the welder out and line up some projects. Good note, bread baking weather is right around the corner, ohhhhh yeahhhh!

The smoke here in CO was Extreme yesterday. I have an Archery Bear & Elk tag, it almost hurt to breathe. Had a bear at 27 yards but it was on the small side so I let it walk. It was interesting watching the bear with the smoke in the air, he was definitely more cautious but not crazy paranoid. Know there's bigger bears in this area, hopefully I'll see something this week.

This morning came way too quick for me as well. Spent all weekend filling open grain on the oak kitchen cabinet ends and face frames, sanding smooth, priming, sanding, patching open spots and missed nail holes, re-priming, sanding, base coat, sanding, patching a few small defects, sanding, and another base coat. Still have 2-3 coats of clear top coat to finish the protection layers. All of this was after making a few cabinet repairs and removing a partition from one cabinet to convert it to open shelves. A similar process awaits me for my 40+ raised panel cabinet doors and 20+ drawer fronts which will begin this Friday. The dropping temperatures and low humidity will make this weekend perfect for spraying all the doors and fronts. Before I can start spraying, though, I have to build two drying racks to lay out all the pieces as I get them coated so I can crank it all out with minimal interruptions.

You guys' talk about the fires makes me think of my 21 yo son who just started Basic Fire School at Auburn's Fire Training Academy. In exchange for committing to 6 years with the Auburn FD, they will reimburse him 100% for any 4-year degree at Auburn University! He's been wanting this for a while and is totally thrilled with the program. Right now, he plans to end up somewhere in the midwest as a smoke jumper and wildland firefighter. He worked really hard to get into the Auburn program by volunteering for the past two years at two local FD's, and was the first one chosen as Team Leader in this year's class. It was great seeing him this weekend and hearing about how it's all going for him! I just couldn't help showing a little family pride.

Mornings in north GA are great during the fall and early spring. Back when I was riding motorcycles I would look forward to the early mornings during this time of year. Nice cool winds, sun rising, etc...

I often see wildfires when we go to north ID and Washington state areas where my wife is from. I remember one time we stopped for a beer refill at a fuel station and the sky was orange and purple from the sun trying to shine through. It sure was cool, but very anxious feeling as well.

Be safe and happy hunting! The smoke here in South Dakota has been extremely thick until that morning.
