More Yard Work

Sunday - Thank you, Tim, for letting me borrow your truck to haul the brush piles to the transfer station. I thought that the yard debris dumpsters would be full but they had at least two drivers hauling away the full ones. It took four trips to haul away the brush. I still have four trees already cut down but need to be limbed and cut into manageable pieces. But there is enough room for a pump truck to back in which is the immediate goal.

I took this picture at Tim's home when I picked up the truck. Does the other sidecar rig look familiar? The current problem is the Nivomat rear shocks are sagging to the point where the rear tire is rubbing on the fender.

Monday - No yard work today! Just a Costco run with the Ural for a handful of items. And like most days in Fairbanks, you run into people you know at most stores.

This evening, we went to the Airheads get-together out in Fox hosted by Ralph at the Howling Dog (still closed for business). We took the Ural and about 20 people showed up.

Good to see your old rig is still tooling around!

"More yard work" - reminds me I need to get out to weed, and clear some unruly brush. Or maybe you are working hard enough for both of us! :)

Still around but not doing much “tooling around”.

I don’t care for yard work at all. It seems like that’s all I’ve been doing these days…

You are getting in some cool trips!

Speaking of....The Mrs and I are planning on riding RT 66 end to end next year date tbd. Interested in going?

That sounds like a really cool trip. I have no idea what's on the travel itinerary for next summer but our paths would definitely cross. We will be on the east coast in the Spring and headed to the PNW by June.
