    Badlands ORP Next Week

    I'm planning to go to the Badlands next week. Going to stick to the bunny trails--avoid bashing up the bodywork on my Toyota. Haven't decided which day--will be during the week. Anyone interested let me know.

    Treadwright Tires

    https://www.treadwright.com/ Decided to try these tires. I generally go for some cheap Asian tires, but these are made in Texas and the same price (about $500 for 4 of them). Not bad for 32" mud tires. They look like the tread pattern of the original Kumho Venture MT. There are some videos of...

    Dana 35 spindle nut tool

    Weird thing. I am putting my 1995 Ranger front end back together and the tool I have always used (Performance Tool W1269) doesn't fit the inner adjustment nut. So I miked it, and instead of being 2.25", it is 2.45". I guess I'm going to have to buy a tool with just the prongs. Anyone know...

    My new book is done...

    finally. It will be on Amazon in a few days. My computer isn't able to use the toolbar buttons on TRS, but this is the link on my site: http://hstrial-wwills.homestead.com/Writing.html When I was messing around in college I bet my literature professor that I could write a full-size novel in a...

    New bike

    I just got this thing--it was a beach rental. Some choppers from Atturbury flew by while I was taping the kids riding it so I added them. I beat out a little chase on the drums. I didn't think the tiny mic on my Sansa Fuze would be any good, but other than not being able to hear the hat, it works.

    After thunderstorm

    We had our regularly scheduled evening thunderstorm tonight. I went out soon after to hammer on my drumset in the barn and the sky was a weird yellow to the west and there was a rainbow to the east.

    D Day

    Tomorrow is June 6, the 66th anniversary of the D Day landing at Normandy. I was in Gettysburg, PA this past week observing the battlefield on which the USA has suffered the most casualties of any battle ever. In 1994 I was at Normandy. I was a member of the Marine Security Guard Detachment...

    Nankang

    I bought some Geo-Trac tires for my Chevy 3/4 pickup 3.5 years ago because they were cheap--like $480 mounted and balanced. I drove it a year and they were worn out. I kept driving it a little when I bought my Honda Civic, but the Civic is dead and I'm tire hunting again for the Chevy. I...

    Oil a physician...

    I buy Chinese-built things because even if they break, the operator's manual is a great read. I bought this engine after the Obamacare vote. So apparently, in lieu of the payment the doctors would normally receive...

    Tug-O-War

    Warrior Fighting Vehicle VS Case IH Quadtrac These each weigh 50,000#. I think the steel tracks just grip better on that surface. I can't believe they did this.:headbang: VIDEO

    Image resolution

    Does anyone know how to increase the resolution on an image without shrinking it? I need a couple 96x96 drawings increased to 300x300.

    Factory Pubs...

    A huge amount of information on '99-up--which would also be useful for '87- trucks, and anyone else for that matter. http://www.gmupfitter.com/body_builder_manuals.html

    Remembering...

    This event was the peak of TRS for me. I was motivated; we were doing things together a few times a year. Now, 5 years on, it's just a website. It's a good website, but not having a couple events a year has really hurt things. I think we should have a TRS event every year no matter where or...

    Motivational article....

    This is from the LA Times. I lived in Sierra Leone, a little north of Ghana and there was a shop just like this with guys putting ancient Puegots and such back into service. It's amazing what these guys can do with almost no tools.

    New boat finished.

    Full building gallery >>LINK<< This was my spring project. I strive to build a boat each year. I think this is #7 completed. I also have a 26' wood dory (getting a 20hp Kubota diesel I attached a marine gear on) framed up in the back yard I hope to get working on soon. Anyway, this is a 13'...

    Telephone Pole

    Anyone know where I can get a telephone pole? I want one to put a treehouse on. We don't have any good treehouse grade trees, just forest trees without real limbs.

    Whats your engine made of?

    After seeing the "beefing up your engine" title I was thinking--how much beef does your engine have? I made this chart off the service manuals I found lying around my chair.
