Tore into the other 4e, only to find that the engines shot. I'm going to source a used one and just throw it back together, if anything It'll be one that I can say I managed to put back together for a change instead of throwing pieces all over the place in anger.

Sloooooowly getting parts for the "gas powered watering can". That's next up.

New shoes on the 2013 F250 - that purchase hurt! Averaging 71k miles per set.

Our shower mixing valve went out and of course even though Lowes said there were two in stock…. I found this. A super helpful employee helped me look through all the other parts on the shelf in the hope they misplaced and no dice. Glad we have other bathrooms, all cold or all hot showers are not pleasant.

What brand of valve? I very seldom change valves. Cartridge yes. Mixing valve, it must be a Delta? Don't buy that Danoc, nothing but problems.

Have 3 sets of those on our vehicles. Good all-round tires and long lasting. Only thing I’ve noticed is they seem to want higher pressure than what the vehicle manuals call for. With lower pressure the mpgs really fall off.👍

Cartridge… I’ve looked at so many parts diagrams that all the parts are blurring together. We were thinking maybe try and find a new style for the bathroom while we were at it. I think that dream has passed….. reassemble the old stuff once the new cartridge gets here.

I prefer Michelin as well, at least for my Explorers. I've had a variety of brands on the RV over the years (depends on availability).

Yesterday was take-down-the-holiday-wreaths-day at Arlington Nat’l Cemetery. We have helped lay wreaths in the past, but this was my first time on clean-up duty.

The old pros used hockey sticks, long poles, and even lengths of rope to collect large bunches of wreathes. I just used my arms, which was not near as effective/efficient. Live and learn - - next time I will come prepared.

The turnout for clean-up was solid, but nothing like for the laying of the wreaths. I was worried we’d be there all day. But it was impressive to see what a swarm of eager humans can accomplish when all focussed on the same singular objective. We finished sooner than I thought possible - - just a couple hours into it.

Still, it occurred to me how much more efficient the whole operation could be if assisted by a large fleet of garden tractors towing carts. Maybe a potential volunteer opportunity for we garden tractor enthusiasts?

Anyway, whether laying the wreaths or cleaning-up after the holidays, it is a moving experience to walk among these hallowed grounds. So much history and sacrifice.

"2 In Stock"
Fine print: "Unless there ain't any on the shelf"

File it along with things like this:
"Ran when last used"
Fine print: " just before it blew up and got left out in the rain and snow 12 years ago"

It's raining, so I'm not really doing much of anything today. Waiting on the engine for the 4e to get here, so everything's pretty much at a standstill until I get it off the bench.
