    Starting a new group

    Well, headed out to another KOZ morning. Have about 20 regular attenders now. Also the 185 acre farm we had offered to us as our base is working out excellent. It has a private lake that is full of bass... Today we have 2 instructors coming to teach the boys about firearms. Due to local regulations today we will be using pellet guns. We have an evening booked at a local Fish and Game club to do a 22 night on July 23rd. This program is turning out so amazing.. Several of the boys are really blossoming with outdoor activities.. One kid even put his gaming computer away...

    Truck needs some love

    Fuel tank has two new straps( no,point in doing only one),pinion seal is replaced.. Seems dry and drives fine after repairs. Found a leaking rear axle seal yesterday,yippee. That is almost done, between cool down periods in AC in House( got overheated yesterday and felt like crap,all night)! Just need to slide axle in and tighten flange nuts, then tire /wheel goes on... Then it’s feet up and time for a cold grape knee high! Or something like that..😼

    Truck needs some love

    Is a new fuel tank strap something that I can get from a parts supplier or am I stuck with the stealership ?

    Truck needs some love

    After the run both ways on the Bamfield road last week, I discovered a few things wrong with the old girl(truck not wife). Front fuel tank strap broke and pinion seal started leaking badly. All this while at Ft Ebey on Whidbey this week. It was a good 6 days away camping..

    Bamfield trip

    Got back last night from 6 days fishing in Bamfield with Dave and Glen(former owner of Dave’s boat). It was a good trip. Good weather for most of the time. Fishing was steady enough. Got springs and coho, not our full limit but enough to be happy. I will let Dave add any pictures and comments.. Its real nice to go away with good people and have a good time,knowing everyone does their part and looks after one another. Thanks Dave, I appreciate your friendship.
  8. I sincerely hope the grin wears off soon and your right foot learns to ease up a bit. Driving a big rig like that with too much go juice happening feels excellent,but when things go sideways with a big rig,it gets ugly real darn fast... I had the grin wiped off my face a few times this year when I let the 500 ponies under the hood of the Kenworth loose and didn’t reign them in soon enough because I was having too much fun...Fortunately no damage was caused that the laundry couldn’t wash out of my undies!!

    Look out bullwinkle

    Super stoked today after my last and very crappy run with thecKenworth. Got notified that our entire moose hunting group got Limited Entry draws for bull moose. This could be an excellent fall with a real nice trip with my longtime hunting partners and my 2 kids. it might be Uncle Doug’s last trip. He turns 86 next December.. If I play my cards right Inmay get both my kids on the hunt. My daughter also got a Mulie doe draw. When she found out she got a moose and a mulie draw she was very filled with emotion. She has been walking in a very dark place the past 6 weeks.

    Grease therapy

    The tie rod ends and ball joints are pretty straightforward and simple. parts are cheap from Cascade German in Portland. A quiet car that has firm steering and suspension drives much nicer.

    Grease therapy

    All done, drives so quiet and smooth now. didnt realize how worn out the front end had got. The old body isn’t too happy with me now,but a hot soaker tub for an hour helped a bit. It would be nice to have a big shop and hoist,but I make do with what I have.
