Desert Dog hard at work as usual. 

I decided to move Bulldog Jeep. 
So I had my assistant backup and I attached the tow bar. 


Things didn’t go exactly as planned Confused
It was a lot muddier than I thought and desert Dog quickly became swamped Ouch



I had to unhook bulldog and tell my wife to shift into 2nd gear  low range and desert Dog clawed it’s way out.She did a great job spinning mud everywhere Clap




Still waiting for it to dry out enough to move bulldog.

I watched the movie as a kid. 
I haven’t ever read it. 
I will keep my eye out for a copy. 
Thanks 

I used to read in the evenings but now I spend most my free time on the 2a page. Wink

We got a little snow during the week so I decided to take a snow day from gutter work. 
More shrub removal. 

I can see why working Flatfender Jeeps always have dented hoods, there the largest flat cargo area. 
Made me consider slats of wood bolted to the top. 
I’ve seen quite a few pictures of that modification and now it makes sense.

Project Gutenberg is an effort to digitize all books that have passed their copyright date.

So here ya go. The Call of The Wild, free, online, you never have to return it.

Well, thanks to this thread (and Stan) I had to read The Call Of The Wild last Friday.  I can cross that one off my must-read list.
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Had to blaze a trail through the sage for a new fence line.


My wife said we could sure get a lot more work done if we didn’t have to stop every 5 minutes to take a picture LOL
