We had a large maple tree removed from our backyard recently. The tree was in bad shape and we felt it was a good time to have it removed. I asked the crew to cut up and leave one of the large limbs so I could split it for firwood to be burned in our fire pit.
I wanted to keep it dry while it seasoned, so I designed and built this firewood rack. It was a simple project, and the first time I decided to record building something just for YouTube.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jessi on a couple of occasions in Moab, UT. She was super nice and took the time to answer some of my questions about her race car. Jessi was the real deal, no doubt about it. She was one of the pretty faces on TV that actually knew what the hell she was talking about.
Jessi was killed trying to beat her land speed record. She already held that record at 398 mph. The off road, fabricating world lost a real bad ass.
I installed this wireless backup camera. It’ll work OK for the trip, but I think I am going to move it further towards the truck. I can’t see the edges of the trailer. I especially want this for when I am backing up, but it’ll come in handy as a rear view mirror as well.
I also added TPMS sensors. I got a flat tire last year in western Colorado and we didn’t notice it until after the tire was destroyed. Hopefully, this will prevent that from happening again.
Went to a Willys Flat Fender get together. Saw a lot of really cool, old, Jeeps. I am hoping to build a WWII era Jeep someday. I want to make it a project. I have no idea where to start, I am hoping I get some ideas from these pictures.
Happens more often than you would think. With the tires aired down so low, branches on the ground can sometimes get wedged in the rim of one of my tires. The solution is simple, just jack it up, take all the air out, and I can dig it out with a blunt screwdriver.
