Sometimes when I am reading this thread it makes me realize I have absolutely no clue what's going on.. Secret jeep projects, suspicious sounding coffee discussions, etc. I guess I am more out of touch with things than I originally thought.

Speaking of being clueless, I have never adjusted any of my firearms sights (all iron sights), I have absolutely no idea how (outside of the obvious tinkering with the adjustment screws, slides, etc) or what to do. If any of you old pros are ever feeling generous, I would sure appreciate the use of your time, knowledge, experience, sighting gadgets, etc. to get me set up correctly.

I need to hire a full time maintenance and mechanic to take care of my stuff so I can continue on the race truck! Would much rather be routing brake lines and stripping off the extra rear brake line and proportioning valve on the race truck then working on my washing machine, fixing my gate opener, etc...

google the washing machine. There are plenty of videos on how to take them apart. I had to take my dryer apart a few weeks ago because the pulley came off of the blower. Like it would have cost whirlpool that much money to use some freaking locktite.

I'm to understand that his laundry gnomes have gone AWOL? Very sad indeed! Shall we organize a SAR for them?

No need with help doing the laundry. Just need it to spin again! I'm not too worried, I'll have it figured out tonight and either have it fixed and working or have an idea what I need to get it up and going. Might have to do some clothes shopping though depending how long it takes to get up and going again.


BTW, I'm quite fine with my single life... I'm pretty sure the driveway of toys reflects it.

That money is slated to refund the $50 I put towards gate parts yesterday and the washing machine for sure.

Don't think it's belt cause it'll still aggitate. I'm tearing into it tonight. Gut feeling is it's the safety switch on the lid to shut down the spin cycle. That's the part it don't wanna do do no more! If it's just that, a simple wire nut and keep your arms outta it while it's spinning! I won't tell my roomie that on purpose though...


Speaking of toys in the driveway. I'm thinking about selling a dirt bike if anyone wants to get into riding? Fairly beginner friendly, it's in good shape. I've had it probably close to a year now and I've only ridden it once and a friend rode it once. It's a KTM 125, I'm thinking a $1000. Only thing it needs is a seal on the output shaft behind the sprocket which is like a $10 part and I might actually even have one. It's simple to replace. Other then that it should be good to go assuming it fires up after sitting for 6 months. I'm a bit scared to open my trailer and see how the summer treated the bikes! LOL sometime soon though I need to get them out and get them ready for riding season and take some pictures of the 125 if I'm going to sell I guess.

I'm single...

(prerunner truck, the expo, the jeep FOR SALE!, '04 KTM 125, '07 KTM 300, the race truck in the garage which isn't technically mine yet it will be at my house for 4 years and I'll probably have 100+ miles on it before the owner ever actually drives it, couple trailers, pool table where you family people would probably have a dining room table, etc...)

What's the problem? I'm thinking about down grading, hence selling the jeep and maybe a dirt bike. Although, Merrick's already hit me up about trading the jeep for a baja bug on craigslist. LOL

http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/3299240174.html

Personally I think it's a little over priced for what it is though. I'd have to see the interior and cage work. I'm actually only about 1% seriously thinking of it...

Although, now that I think about it, that baja would be fitting... see if you follow me here.

Back in the day, I owned this jeep... (best picture I have online, someday I'll scan the old pictures.)



and these days I own this one...




Back in the day I owned this explorer which I built way beyond what's pictured here...



And now I own this one...



And well, back in the day I also used to own this baja bug!




So really, in theory, it would only make sense for me to trade my jeep for that baja in the ad above right? LOL







It's like a cyclical thing for me I think...
