Complete repair and go out side to install it and discover its been raining out. Crap! proceed to crawl around under truck in wet driveway and install driveshaft.

Take truck for test ride to gas station, Got gas for the bike this time. Observe large wet snowflakes come down on way home. Sigh and mentally prepare myself for another studless snow run that wasn't supposed to have any snow
I'm 8 miles from the start and no snow here still!

2316 hrs truck loaded.
Discovered its below freezing even though my computer says its 34.
Did you know when you step from inside your garage into the back of a frozen (it was raining earlier) pick up bed the residual heat in your boot will cause you to stick to the ice just long enough to throw you off balance before it reverts to its normal slippery surface?
Having your truck facing down hill on your rather steep driveway will only increase the entertainment value to anyone who is lucky enough to be watching you as you do this.

Im off to bed. Wish me luck

Good luck tomorrow...Oh as per the slippery bed in ice. I know it well, broke my wrist in 94 unloading a bike, slipping on the bedliner.

Finishing a NETRA enduro is an accomplishment in and of itself.

As long as Crank and GBG keep their wood to themselves...
