“The panel “wants” to go back the way it started.” he said admiring the job.
With all the rain we had at SCARR 2015 the trails were muddy. But unlike Oklahoma’s red clay this soil took the water very well and drained away. That didn’t mean it came off any easier than Oklahoma red mud, but it was not as nasty when you were driving through it. We had quite a few creek crossings to add to the mud.
We started the first day with a lecture from Arto Pullinen. Some of us (read that as NOT Mr. Fisher) learned some new hand signals that trail guides would be using.
This has not been a very fun couple of weeks for Big White Bus. My all time favorite thing on an automobile to work on is the electrical system. /end sarcasm.
I live by five simple rules.
- I don’t play with electricity.
- I won’t live any place I’m not the tertiary member of the food chain.
- I never get less than twelve hours sleep.
- I never play cards with guys who have the same first name as a city.
- I’ve never gotten involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.*
The twelve hours of sleep has long since become merely a guideline and no so much a rule. And playing with electricity is also sometimes necessary. This week especially. […]
I’ve talked about JagGuy’s nasty hobby of bobbing deuce and a halfs. The picture is of his personal rig. It is simply awesome. The stance, the color, the massive 5 ply tires, it has “that look”. While I waited for him to get back from lunch on Saturday I checked out his truck. I drove[…]
It was another hot Saturday in Central Oklahoma. The temperature made it to 102 F in Norman. Even with the temps as nasty as that we don’t stop work because we might get a little sticky and sweaty. We just turned on the fans and opened up the doors. The Evil German Dude had us[…]
I worked on a new video today. I swapped a CV joint and some seals. I’ll get it up as soon as I have it done. Here’s a teaser. Otherwise not much is going on. I have the gas mileage up to 13.5 mpg on average. I did learn today from the manager of the[…]
With my new job providing a minor amount disposable income once again, I was able to do a small landscaping project this weekend. I took Mr. Fisher with me on Saturday to Lowe’s to pick up some pavers, gravel, and a flower requested by Mrs. Okierover. We got to Lowe’s and loaded up two push[…]
Sorry for the post drought lately. I finally have a new job and haven’t had much time to do much of anything Land Rover. I ordered a CV joint and some other bits to sort out the axle problem that I referred to in Front Half Shaft Oil-Seal Failure. I thought they’d be in[…]
Wow! Doesn’t that look great? I am chuffed to bits over it. It may surprise you but photoshop is not one of the things I’m good at. I put together the old Okierover logo more than ten years ago using Paintshop Pro. My good friend Richard Mullins did it for me. Rich and I’s friendship[…]
