Six gallons? That sounds more like a field than a yard!


5 + acres


It is the Harley of mowers sucks gas (2 barrel carb)and uses a little oil.



Rain continues here

Afternoon all. 

One heck of a night here.  We had a bunch of helicopter-worthy medical calls overnight, and since I live less than a quarter mile from the helipad, sleep was not an easy task.  In between helicopter landings, there were neighbors who think riding a Harley through our little street at 3am is a good idea, a raccoon that tried to eat our bunny food (accompanied by frenzied barking from the dog) and so on.   In all, it equates to a day fueled by caffeine.

My new rifle should be in today or tomorrow now.  So then I'll be able to do the paperwork and wait my ten days.  Undecided

That's quite a yard, and mower to match. I only mowing about 1 to 1 1/2 acres, but with the estimated 25+ year old JD 38" rider, and the Lowe's push mower, it's still a chore to keep it done. about half of it is "new" yard, IE former pasture, keep having to weld the deck back together because of hitting rocks and stumps.

The decks on the box store John Deers are all a nightmare. The one sitting here was ruined second use. The throttle cable broke furst use. The stactic drive transmission is shot now. Less than a100 hours. Three summers ago it was new. The prior got about five seasons. Deck was trashed body falling off. I replaced yhe steering linkage before it decided to never start again. No more JD's . I was wanting a Kabota 4x but they are twice what this cost. This cost more than my first new truck- JD cost more than my first cars.  As a group.
Thinking about running a electric wire and bringing a couple Burros home.

3" of rain since yesterday

Afternoon all.

Weather is hot and sunny, per usual California summer.

We have a Craftsman pushmower for our yard that is in its 14th season.  It gets used every three weeks in the summer, and that's it.  It also only has to mow 1/4 acre.  Roll Eyes

Good luck with the eyewear, Cap.

Yup, that little hole might cause a problem.

Been fighting cooling problems on my latest Blazer for a couple of weeks. First leaking heater core. Stop leak fixed that real good, no water even gets THROUGH it now. Then it's overheating, but no leaks. Cap holds no pressure, replace that. Good for a day, then radiator springs a pretty good size leak(but smaller than the FieldMarshall's leak) Replace that. Drive around 40-50 miles, seems fine. Next day, 20 minutes into the route, water pump is dribbling. Fixed that. Hardly any cooling system left to replace now. Actually went all day today without problems!

Morning all.

That's quite the hole there, Del.  What year is the truck?

PE, my dad and I have had to fix literally everything you just mentioned in our Blazer...Some twice.  Or thrice.   For some reason, we still have that car, despite the fact that we spent more fixing it than we did on buying it.  And we bought it close to new. Undecided

Looking at rain today.  We'll see how that goes.

Kid, the last Blazer I owned was a 98 TrailBlazer I think. I went to put the bearings in the front, and snapped off a wheel lug or two. Get the wheel off, and find that my 2WD had 4WD hubs, doubling the price. Then I found out, there were 2 years that used special hubs made in Canada, special order from the dealer only, double the doubled price. Won't ever own a Chevy again.

The Wife's car is a 2005 Trailblazer, and so far it's the best car I ever bought. Had about 100,000 when we got it, 185,000 now, total maintenance besides oil changes and tires: 1 coil pack, couple of years ago. It's getting pretty high miles now, sure hope we can get as good when it needs replacing. Oops, forgot: the heater speed resistor continually goes out, but I blame that on the aftermarket replacement parts. currently has 1-3 out of 5 speeds working.

PE, we had an '03 Trailblazer for about 5 years.  The worst problem we had is that there was an electrical drain on it somewhere so that it sometimes didn't start in the mornings.  Besides that, we never had a problem with it.  Ours we bought at 120,000 miles, and we traded it in at 185k.  We have a 2010 Ford Explorer now, and so far it's been pretty good.  We had to replace the coil pack, but that's it. 
And then there's my truck.   '95 F150 with the 351.  All I've done is replace a couple belt pulleys and the oil.  187k miles and still gets 17mpg on the highway. Roll Eyes

I finally got the paperwork done on my new rifle.  I drove all the way to the city for it, with the dog.   I did learn that my dog does not like taxidermy.  She barked at the mounted bears and caribou off and on for 45 minutes. Tongue
