Pinelands pictures posted

Ok, I didn't get any work done on the Scout this weekend, but I did manage to get some pictures posted from Scout the Pinelands. See the link here:

Carl and Mary and I will be exchanging disks, so more photos and a compilation video will be forthcoming some time in the next few weeks.

Just a taste...

Here is a little taste of the fun at Spring Pinelands. I'll be posting photos and video in the next week or so, so stay tuned...

Another Pinelands is in the books...

As always, we had a great time. Great food, great friends, great wheeling and of course great trucks. No damage that isn't fixable, no major calamities (aside from the park ranger with an itchy pen). This year we added a new feature - Scout games. I'm sure the games will become a regular features. Pictures and videos to be posted soon!

...and away we go

Tonight is pack night, getting ready for Scout the Pinelands. Alas, I am without a Scout this time. My brother graciously donated his truck to drive (and abuse), but his Scout is a no-go too. He's got a fuel delivery problem. It's either the pump or the lined clogged at the tank. Will need to go a little checking on that issue.

I'll be a rider this year at Pineys, but there should be plenty of seats. As wet as it is, I hope my car can make it back to the lodge. Otherwise, I'll be the first stuck! Stay tuned for pics.

cut a little bit, cut a little more...

It seems all I am doing is cutting out more metal. Well, I guess that's what I am doing. Today out came the rest of the floors. Good, solid metal, but unnecessary. Perhaps I'll use the scraps elsewhere. I did spend a little time wire brushing the newly exposed frame. I'll be painting it with POR-15 while I have easy access.

...oh the pain

So, the plan was to get up and work on the Scout today before doing some yard work, but... getting out of bed proved to be an issue. :-( The back is just a little bit sore today. I knew I shoulda done my stretches before bed last night. Maybe this afternoon I can tackle some work.

another one bites the dust

Today was spent working on a Scout, but this time it was Allan's parts rig. We tore it down to the bones, betting all the good bits out of it. Well, except for the engine, trans and transfer case. Hacked a few bits out to use on Hanky, so the work was relevant to the task at hand. I cut out the passenger A pillar and most of the rocker, along with a full dual exhaust and a few other scraps. With Hanky down, I had to drive the Crossfire. Not the best parts hauler, so everything had to stay at Allan's, save a few small bits. We'll get them here one way or another.
