05 June 2021...getting stuck with the doors off...

Looks like a good time to take the doors off :)

But first...seriously Facebook? What, people got butt hurt over tax policy discussions using a common English phrase? Dead clear, for those that don't know (like prisses at Facebook), comes from water that you can see to great depths due to lack of life like the Dead Sea and chlorinated and filtered swimming pools.

Started off the day fixing the broken 4wd shift bushing...this would've been a pain on the trail (but doable). My finger tips could just reach where it goes without dropping the skid plate, but just reach -- not enough to manipulate it into position.

It's that new white thingy in the center of the photo.

Cover for the quick access to the top bushing.

Let's go check out some stuff on Eric's property...

Well...shit. We went down one trail and I thought I might need to winch through the wet spot and then winch again on the way out, and I couldn't make a difficult corner in reverse, so I did a bit of bushwhacking to make a multi-point turn.

And forgot I had my front plate on since I didn't plan to do serious off roading :D

On the way in, we noticed the tractor was at the bottom of the hill after Scott had been cleaning up stones on the road...well shit, with it freshly dug up and recent rain I couldn't make it up the hill (with the tractor blocking my from getting a good running start).

Time for Eric to learn how to be the winch wench.
