Good for Lowe's.
I'm not, but most of my family/friends are. I prefer to do business with companies that respect our troupes.

I got that Rat

welp...I got him!

I secured a rat trap to the board and the rat took the bait! If you look at the 1 o'clock position of the tub, you will see the rat as it fell off the board. Apparently, as he pushed on the lever and the trap sprung, he jumped backwards but was not quick enough. The trap bar slammed right across its face. I found the rat on the ground on the left side of the tub



the light kinda washes this pic out but you can see me holding the DEAD rat by the tail!

If I were single, no kids, no hobbies, and read more books, worked on less stuff, and didnt feel the need to fix things, that would be a great option.

at this point in my life, it is not a valid one though.

Im bouncing between living out in the woods with a giant workshop, or burning all of this shit to the ground and living on a sailboat on the coast

Wicked Burnt Tuna

What a great name for a sailboat.

If this wasn't the only home my Mom has known since '85, and my Daughter didn't have such a sentimental attachment to it, I would love to live in a condo/townhouse.
So long as I have a secure garage to store my stuff.
Maybe after Mom has to go to a 24hr care facility.

drain it, refill a known amount, run it, and check later, and check real good for leaks, pinion seal, diff cover, and at the ends of the axle tubes.

its going somewhere, and youd have to do something silly to get it hot enough to vent otherwise.

silly, like running a detroit locker on the interstate..
Nevermind. I figured it out. There are two screws that hold the brake line to the axle with a bracket. I remember when I installed it that these go through the axle tube, essentially making a hole. The oil appears to be leaking out through there.

And, you're right in that it must be getting hot because the oil is low. I'll clean it up, RTV the holes and refill it. Just not tonight.

Good thing the weather will be warmer tomorrow. I can take the bike.

I went in to the class with an open mind, assuming I didn't know jack about riding. The instructor was constantly telling at me to tighten up my knees, turn my head, relax my hands, etc... It was like having a personal trainer.

The class really is great for learning good habits, pointing out common mistakes and making you a better, more aware and cautious rider. I could have just jumped on my bike, but I'm glad I took the class. The one in Fort Smith was much cheaper than the ones they have here and my instructor was great.
