So whats everyone up to with their machine in winter?

A few shots - the first was a split logs and pile firewood kinda pic. The other was our old Polaris caught in a bit of a puddle... 'do you think it's deep?' 'nah - it's probably shallow - go on, are you chicken' and then the exhaust was making bubbles and we needed to pull it out - two people pulling as no one wanted to hook a winch up

up to about 102 degrees of bend in my new knee , progress is going slow do to all the scarring .. but that's what happens when ya have complications and get a late start on rehab ..

did I tell y'all the my partner / lady broke her wrist and had to have surgery for pins .... so been doing all the household honey do's .. now that's a job n a half , between laundry and vacuuming and cooking Im busy as heck and now my Border Collie is starting to have a spring shed so we are overwhelmed with fur LOL

so that's what I am doing wishing I was back home in Coeur d'Alene and doing some rides in the snow n mud with a ton of warm weather gear [on edit ..ooops cold weather gear] on Oh well soon enough.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

I have owned three border collies, first one when I was about 12. Last two have been gone now for a while, really miss them, momma almost 15 and her pup at 13. Really good dogs, very smart.
