Merry Christmas,

Geek can't do that. He's on a beach, sunning himself.

Pussy.

I had my Yama-Quad/plow out this morning, and cleared my own driveway + three more for nice neighbors. After all, it IS Boxing Day.... and it was a lotta fun playing with my toys.

His snow removing challenge may be more than he is expecting coming back for a sandy beach.

I can only imagine having to shovel his way into his shop and then moving a foot or more of snow .

He does need to give us some pics of his efforts after so many of us went to great lengths to help him decide on what he wants/needs/can afford.

I was getting very aggravated with my Toro blower dying after a few minutes of running.
Spark was good, gas was fresh. What else. Until I realized that there was no gas smell, even after cranking the starter forever and giving it the choke and primer... Spark plug was bone dry.
#!@#$#$$$# gas cap vent was plugged. I'm not even sure how the vent is supposed to work. I don't see any hole.

MJ, the bottom of the filler cap usually has holes on the bottom side of the cap, from what I understand, holes on the bottom to prevent snow/moisture being sucked into the gas tank.

Hope you have found yours may be the same.

Miss you Gale!



We met a couple last night in Big Bend who were from Pagosa Springs. He said he "strapped a snow shovel to his front bumper and drove south until someone asked him what it was for".

Good on you for checking in on us here with all the white stuff. Big Bend is super nice . Sandy and I left that Mc Donald observatory on Ft Davis Mountain and before we got off that road we had to dodge two groups of javelinas. They are not anything one would like to 'smack' on 2 or 4 wheels. Sierra Alpha!!

Stay warm and dry, keep Tweety smiling

Man up GEEK!!!

Cheryl got mad at me today for running over a tarantula. I had to explain to her it was a matter of me or him! I locked the doors incase he survived

Over the last couple of days we followed the Rio Grande from the Gulf to New Mexico.

My neighbor had my driveway and sidewalk cleared before I even woke up this morning.

I love my little cul-de-sac

. I would love to live close enough that a group of us could meet there and all pitch in just to help and enjoy the smiles/laughs that for sure as hell are going to happen :

Wadscrasher has the right idea as to where to purchase a house!!!

You'll be happy to know Gale that the Sprinter is parked comfy in its garage.





Got home about 3pm.. parked on the road with the 4ways on.

Spent 2 hours with the plow and then an hour with the snow blower and drove the Sprinter to the top!



Holy heck I must have shoved 10 tons of snow off the edge of the shelf

If you look close you can see the Sprinter at the bottom (took this walking up to the house when we got home)

All kidding aside, it is very good to hear/know you are safely home. Looking down that drive I can understand how you spent that much time and effort getting into the garage.

Welcome home Well done Geek, take 5!!!
