    General Tech What did you work on Today?

    Put some Headwaters seat covers on the front seat of the Ram. The Kryptec Raid is a bit lighter than the Typhoon on the back seats , which I like. Full coverage now.

    What did you work on Today; Home Edition

    Pulled out the stump of a nectarine tree the bores killed last year. The cheap tree strap that came with my high lift recovery kit wasn't up to the task. I'll take recommendations on a good US-made replacement.

    Proud daddy moments

    No fancy pictures, but my son (a junior is HS) just finished his year with a 3.7 GPA and his little sister completed sixth grade with a 4.0. So yeah, I'm pretty proud of them.

    So now what

    What TRD says. I have kids in school too, and I don't like it. But further restricting the rights of those who already obey all the laws will do little, if anything, to solve America's moral crisis.

    Mount Rushmore Trip

    That part of the country is cool. We did this trip from southern NM a few years ago. Some highlights for us (aside from the monument itself) include: We did a gold mine tour with after-tour gold panning. Little kids dig it. If you like trains, ride the 1880 train: https://www.1880train.com/...

    Favorite Toilet Reading

    I rarely take my phone to the facilities, instead reading magazines like "Bugle" from the RMEF or paperbacks. As a diehard Fantasy/Sci-Fi guy, I often gravitate that way.

    Which 40 is good these days?

    I've had 295/75 Yokohama Geolander MTs on my 2006 Ram 2500 since November 2019. They have been great - mud, snow, sand, whatever. I only have about 10k miles, give or take, but they still look great and will probably age out before I wear them out. I'd recommend them.

    General Tech What did you work on Today?

    Every time I read something from Mike I wish I lived closer so he could work on my truck. I'm sure it needs something! Thanks for all the very informative and drool-worthy posts Mike.
