Alaskachick doing her thing... Yesterday...
Hahahah thats awesome!
Don't ya just love a woman that can do it all !!!
Yes, I do.... and Thank the Maker, everyday.... that I was fortunate to attract such a fine woman......
Does she cut firewood and split and stack it also ? If so, she must be a keeper
You want me to ship ya'll a #10 can of DAYLIGHT ( dehydrated, of course, to save shipping ). ??
The least you could do is buy her a grader with a little less rust on it.
Were you drinking a beer or cocktail, while she worked. Just poking fun at ya.
Looks like you "snagged" a gud un BT. That gal is super. My wife has trouble driving an auto car on dry ground.
Is she clearing your runway? Give the girl a break, get a ski plane!
Thank you all
Thanks for the support....everyone After so much work on that *&$#@ road grader, just getting it started is the biggest pain in the butt! Clearing the snow seems like gravy Its a 1942 Austin Western, gas/diesel engine. You start it.........or try to......on gas........... warm it up...and then switch to diesel, the same engine...no glow plugs on this baby. Chuck our pilot friend came over to help fix a problem on it yesterday, said I had done a fine job on the road. Then we cleared the few inches that had fallen in prep. for getting a wheeled plane in here today, with some visitors and mail. Well......overnight we got about 4 inches more! and sooooooo the saga continues. I may have to go ahead and replace the coil and plugs on the gas side before I think about starting it again. The points, rotor, and cap got replaced a few weeks ago because we had the parts here. But what we really need are the new coil and plugs on the grader instead of in the box.....it is kind of "jury-rigged" right now. Using a propane torch, a blow dryer, and ether are sooooo much more interesting though. [batteye]
The grader seems perfectly serviceable
A little rust gives it character, and it sends the message "I may not look pretty, but damnit...I'm tough, and nothing's going to stop me from doing my job!".
A lick of paint and it will look store bought. ; )
Having watched the film "Cider House Rules", your remarks and emote are apt. A source of ignition and ether can be a very "illuminating" experience...hope the grader has a good extinguisher and fire blanket.
