Getting Back Into Gear Update
I still have to finish up my two projects but I actually have been catching up on the other jobs that had been building up. My bet is it is safe to assume I won't need to mow anymore this year so I have been getting everything arranged for Winter now. Pulling the log splitter out and boxing in the mowers that sort of thing. The blade is back on the 8N and all parked in it's own little area with it's own door to come out for plowing activities as needed. Which I am sure won't happen before January but I am ready.
Another few days and it will be time to finish Winterizing the bee hives as well. After that comes putting away the rain barrels and the new hand pump for the cistern then back to work spreading out the piles of wood chips.
The last act of Fall will be tearing down the garden completely and giving it a good tilling then the tiller will go into storage. I will leave it in an easier location though because it will be the first thing to come out during the typical false Spring dry period. Usually that is in March.
Total vehicle repair costs for the month. Slightly over $4,000.00. There goes my brush hog once again.
Another interesting little tidbit. About 9 months ago I tried to buy a Ruger SR1911 and no one had one available. The guys said they would put one on back order and they just called me today to tell me one was available.
I was like...errrrr. I value my life too much for that right now. The wife would kill me after the repair bills we had this month.
I really wanted that pistol too :(
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
