Well, 23 days sounds about right for a Ural. That's 15 days riding and 8 days wrenching.

Happy Father's Day!

So that's why you've been quite, you been digging holes all over the ranch, trying to find a couple more cans of money.

One can of money x James wrenching a couple hours = SOG riding a few days.
