    They weren’t necessary as this was so easy. (Though I did check for accuracy afterward.)

    Yes!
    Very nice.
    Taken it "off road" yet??
    Looks like it's ready for some real fun!

    I'm not really an off-road guy, but I wanted a truck that was capable and looked like a truck.

    Yepper. It's fast. Rebuilt 6.0 diesel, larger injectors, larger turbo, studded and deleted. Although I'm not going to drive it fast, I like having the power.

    Mounted and powered up a set of fog lights on my spyder motorcycle.
    Set them up to a relay that will turn them on and off with the ignition switch.
    Took it for a quick ride, they work great.
    Been needing them for some time.
    They only draw 1 amp each, so I don't have to worry about overloading the charging system.

    I tinkered on, and got a generator working, that has not run for 8 years. It was given to me by some friends who used it one time, during a hurricane outage, and I was given it several months later. Replaced a pull cord, cleaned out the carb, and replaced the oil. Runs like new now.

    More forestry cosplay. I'm cutting out big leaf maple, giving the fir, hemlock and cedar more room and more light. Not a critical job, but the cat is broken down, so our little logging show is stalled.

    I tossed a big pile of big leaf maple trimmings down the slope, then did a somersault into the pile. Pretty easy to execute the full front flip on a steep grade. Fortunately the pile cushioned the fall and kept me from going to the bottom of the canyon. I'll watch my footing more carefully AND rig a safety line next time.

    Hard work is manly. (I think?) Silly acrobatics, more childish. Good luck is ageless, but perhaps limited in supply.

    I moved my target out to 50 M (from 40M) and came back home with all my arrows.

    Just installed a bed cover (at the wife's insistence) on my truck.
