They are heavy as fuck too but what surprised me the most is the short long arm suspension on all 4 and coil over strut all around too.

Needs more coyote swap too

Monday.

Ran a 5k Saturday. I don’t run and knew I would be hurting. My calves and foot arches are so fucked up. Hobbling around like an old man who can’t bend his knees. The calves aren’t so bad as long as I stay moving but my feet are killing me to be standing more than a few minutes.

shin splints ?

Checked out that house yesterday. Some updating needs to be done. Original owners for 39 years and they never finished the basement. Not a big deal since my brother can handle that but they have a square room in the middle of the basement with a hot tub in it.

the basement smelled damp ( as did the whole house when you walked in).
The attached garage was smaller, not sure if the truck would fit. The 24x30 detached garage has a 14ft high peak which was nice. RE Agent mentioned an offer was made on Saturday and the owners haven't countered yet.

eh, it was okay, but I am going to keep looking. I did like the area/ setting. When I was leaving, an older man and woman were walking their dog... as I drove by they smiled and waved.

so i removed the softener to free up basement space because it wasn't doing much to begin with.

new house is on a well and really needed a softener so kinetico neat lil deal got added.

id get an inspection done for sure, but be very aware that inspectors can miss a METRIC FUCKTON of shit and it's "okay"

they're like a weather forecaster bascially... almost infallible with the shit they make you sign and what they present.

also they can absolutely royally fuck a sale also by buyers who take their word as gospel.

I have this weird shit that grows, it literally looks like wheat but it's brown in color, but there's patches of it every few feet and it looks like shit. So I mowed that down.

When grass cones it takes over.. it's weird.

10 acres, and about 2.5 of which is actual grass, rest is heavy forest.

I have about 10 feet of chain link fence that I wrapped 2 heavy ass logs in and drag it behind quad, 3 times each way and it rips all Vines and shit out and also cuts down my berms from raptor

Better man than I am! Although I did ride my dirtbike for about 5.5hrs yesterday at an offroad park. Forearms are beat up today, but the rest of me feels pretty good!

what park were you at?


I ran a 5k last year around lake zurich- one of those clusterfuck events where people throw color powder at you and shit.

i hated it.

although i dont like crowds and this was basically running with a crowd of a few thousand, so that's probably where my hate stemmed from.

Pretty clean trails and hill climbs throughout most of the park. There were a few wet spots, but they could easily be avoided.

I was out with @1MEANGT working up our skills for our Hatfield McCoy trip later next month. Turns out I'm pretty good at this dirtbike stuff... at least in that, I'm not afraid of it.
