Haha, that's basically where I'm at already! I need to work slower and enjoy the process more.

The good news is that when it comes in you dont have much work left to finish . The bad news is that Tates legs are going to get tired of pushing you around the cul de sac ...

Funny you say that.... we've pushed it up and down the driveway into the garage several times now...... he's less than enthusiastic especially when I make him get in and steer with no power.

He is probably just embarrassed because you keep making motor noises

The neighbors are probably like "why in the HELL does he keep bringing it outside if he has to push it back in"! It's NOT easy and If I quit posting on here.... I'm probably seriously injured from being run over by my push toy.

Morning Nate, when you get your White lightning done, drag it up Kaiser pass and run the 9 miles from the Dusy trailhead to Ershim lake, will be a good shakedown run. Much more fun than anything on Swamplake, loved the scenery there just couldn't find the tough stuff, somebody must a took it
We found one lil ledge that was fun.

Grouse lake is gorgeous to camp on. By the way if you trailer your Jeep up Kaiser pass stop and leave the truck and trailer a few miles before the trail head. The last part is something else, climbs like mad, poor truck didn't want to go over 10mph with the pedal on the floor and a few spots were so narrow, rock wall on one side, nothing on the other side and a road that is at the most 1 foot wider than the trailer, was interesting to say the least.
WAs a pretty darn fun trip for sure, you woulda liked it

An important piece of the puzzle installed today! I don't know why driveshaft's are cool.... but they are. 5 business days from order to install. I think that's pretty good for a custom driveshaft. Looks very high quality all the way down to the finish. Glad to have this piece done!
