Looks like your on top of pipe line in that long shot ! looks like a whole lot of fun !
Yes looks like it goes down the middle of the property. Found a little gun range not too far away and put a few rounds down range. Last night a dumb @$$ was pouring gas on his fire and blew the can up. Had to medi vac him out. Not sure the outcome of that but made an interesting evening. Three nights of the thoughtless, self centered,brain dead moron running his loud ass generator is getting quite old. About ready for a green tip to find its way through the engine block. Thankfully the ambulance is prettywell insulated and quiet inside20211127_191212.jpg. Other than that been a great weekend.

It really is difficult to fix stupid.
We all know ways, but it could be costly. :-(

Home safe and sound. Throw out bearing is trash. Now to decide how to start replacing the drive train and axles and minimize down time. Getting spoiled camping with the ol girl. With no wind to speak of and pulling a buggy I got a little over 9mpg, get about 1/2 that with headwind. Thinking with 4:56 maybe 11 or 12mpg. 20211129_135147.jpg

Yea ive got to find me a chart of channel frequency numbers for this thing i know its got ham ch in it .
Yes, My son said that a lot of HAM guys fuss at people that have these because it too easy to use the frequencies you have to take the test for. With GMRS you have to get a license but it restricted to GMRS use and whoever is on the license (family). We will get our HAM license one of these days but its a time thing and we dont use the radios enough. I think that I said everything correctly. Im not educated enough on this stuff.

yes for sure. I think there will be a lot of things that are licensed now that will probably be out the door then.
See if this will help.
