Snow. Wet snow. Lots of it.
It looks like Christmas again!
The tires have always been awful, so I had ordered new ATV tires for it. Well, for those tires, now it also needed a lift kit and new shocks for the back end and some kind of thingamabob for the front end. Definitely beyond my mechanical capabilities!
Vernon can do it. He’s a pro.
But I try to be helpful… I can grab the 12 mm wrench, and hold that, and tighten this nut, and shine the light here, and roll the tires over here and put them on!
(Speaking of which… did you know ATV tires have a direction for rotation? They do! So I put the second one on wrong, but I never knew you could put a tire on wrong! Now I know…)
The rest of the time I spent sweeping, or lining up the buckets of oil, and straightening up this table or that bench. I can’t do too much, because my organizational skills are mighty different from the guys’. They’d never find anything if I got too anal about things out there!
Daniel finally explained it to me. You group things from projects together… so those bolts and that part and that spray and the whatchamacallit tool are together because you need them to work on, say, the snowmobile. Those bolts and that part are together because they go to the sprayer.
Me? I would put all bolts together and all parts together and all tools together and all sprays together… which would be totally wrong!
I can pick up trash and pile it though! So I did a lot of that while Vernon worked.
The back tires were easy, and wow! Look at the difference!
My minitruck is stylin’! OK, it’s halfway stylin’!
