Sorry to hear that Griz. Montana and Wyoming is particularly bad between Motor Cycles and wildlife. A few years back a friend of mine (railroader) got called to work at about midnight. He only lives about 3 miles out of town and it was a beautiful night so he thought he would slip into town on his Harley. A deer got him, he didn't get the deer. The deer came from the side running across the road and missed his windshield but got him right across the chest and head. It didn't kill him, however, he'll never ride again and never work again. My Son rides a Harley in the Big Horns and he's careful to be off the mountain roads well before sundown, but there's always that ride that keeps you out late, so you never know.

Had a bit of rain a little earlier. Shortly after 5 this evening, we got 2.48 inches of rain in 35 minutes. Talk about a gully washer.

Got a real frog strangler in Helena yesterday. The local rag says .64 inches, but the water was running about 4 inches deep through my yard. The main storm dumped in about 1/2 hour, and we had pea sized hail. (That stuff really smarted when I was trying to get the dogs in!)

There was some flash flooding in the area as well, so I really question the accuracy of the report.

Oh well, keeps the fire danger down a little

Not a good day yesterday, blew the head gasket on my v-10 truck. That is going to be expensive but I need it for starting the wood pile again.

Winter is coming....

Sorry to hear about that problem with the Dodge.............it seems its always the unexpected mechanical problems that come at the worst time. The day after I paid my May 30th R. E. Tax bill..........I had a $227. repair bill on my 2007 GMC truck....the air lines for the air suspension shocks were leaking badly. Just turned 75000 miles..........thought those
Lines would have lasted longer than that.
How many miles on that V-10??

Do you have to change both sides?

Ketch ya later.

Hey Griz,

Don't know if I have to do both sides yet, haven't got that deep into it. Started out for work yesterday and looked back and everybody behind me had dissappeared in a cloud of smoke

I only have 300k on that truck, just getting broke in good.

The cheapest shop I could find to do the repair was $1500. I have done the work on 4s, 6s and 8s, it's a pain but can be done at home.

This 10 is a new breed of cat for me and I don't want to screw it up.

Oh well, if nothing else my brother has a v10 that he wants to put a diesel in, so his engine might become available.

I am going back to my 1967 Scout. Easier to work on

Speaking of putting a diesel in something. A good friend of mine owns Dakota Battery in Rapid City. His boys help out, one runs the shop and the other runs the towing. But they got creative and took a dodge cummins out of a wreck and swapped the engine in their International Tractor. The last time I had talked to them, they had just got it running and were going to take it out to see what it would do. Not sure of the outcome, but they posted pictures.






He built a pickup to pull his horse trailer with and yes, it is a twin screw and not a tag axel. It is a pickup, and not a semi.

Just picked up my second Winchester model 75. Giving the first one to my son. Mounted an old Tasco 4x scope to the rifle, bore sighted it by eye and set up a target in out brush pile out front. Shot from about 50yds..

First 4 shots to get dialed in, then last 3 for bull. Nice cloverleaf on my last 3 shots using CCI Green Tag target loads (subsonic).

I love these old target rifles. They were made to shoot for generations- this one was made in the early 40's..
Gonna make a dandy yard gopher buster!
