    I kinda do the car thing for a living so use to taking things apart. Generally get them back together without any extra bits. Bikes are the same but not if you know what I mean.
    Dave, the kayak was a father/daughter project we started when she was 13. Trying to keep her on track. Thought I would finish it and give it to her. She is now 36. Time flys by when your having fun doesn't it???

    Every couple of years I move every thing in the shop out to the driveway and clean the shop. I find a lot of circlips, springs, screws and ball bearings for some reason.

    You don't need to put on your reading glasses to see the vehicle. My solution is to have a 9 year old standing by.

    When I cleaned out the sidecar after getting it home from your house, I didn't find any 10mm wrench, just a wad of 100s in the glove box, I just figured it was a rebate:-)

    I saw Don post a picture of your arrival at the Arctic Ocean over on ST Riders. Are you doing a trip report?

    That looks like a newer rig than the one I saw before. Wishing you a safe trip home.

    Made it, now on the way home. Rig is holding up well, touch wood of course. ! Paying the price for a couple of lazy days, I have some long days in the Saddle over the next bit. IMG_3227.JPG IMG_3229.JPG I didn't want to leave the Yukon. Such a beautiful place with so much to see.
    It is going to take a year to clean things once I get home. :-0

    I disagree. That Aerostich gear comes out pretty nice if you take it to the laundromat and use their big front loading machines.

    I wasn’t really referring to the gear. Just adds nice patina. The rig has mud and bugs and debris in spots that are going to be fun to get at. If I bother
