It's been in the low 30's the last few days. So, it's melting slowly (which is good). If it Chinooks I'll probably have a road to fix before the shoot. We are generally about 5 degrees cooler. Here's a pic from this morning. Snowing again.

Roads better be clear in 3 weeks. I'm paying someone else to do the ball joints in my rig, which hurts me to do, since I know it isn't that hard if you have the equipment and shop.

The biggest problem with religion is those who claim to know Jesus, then turn around and deny Him with their lifestyle. That is what a unbelieving world, simply finds unbelievable.

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.

A "couple" ? looks like you were a Canadian resident for four months.

Heck, our roads had 6" of snow this morning and they are clear now. The rest is "smooshy" at the moment.

Looks like you have the same dates as the desert 100 motorcycle race in Odessa. I will be doing one or the other this year. Still a lot of snow and frozen ground on the farm in Davenport... going to be muddy mess. Fun!

Transfer case on the ‘Beater ‘Burb sounds like a rock crusher and the rear diff on the Silverado whines like a 13 yr old girl. If I can get a transfer case in the ‘Burb before then I’ll be there. I’ve located one but a matter of getting it swapped out.
I have a couple of new shootin’ Irons I want to try out there. One from Tuscan Raider and one a Commie Rifle that some may find “interesting” complete with factory optics.

I had the ball joints on my blue palace on wheels, most every thing else is already packed and ready to load. Planning on a late Thursday, early Friday arrival.
