Random Thought

What if the wolf was an innocent land owner, and the three little pigs were illegal squatters, who made themselves out to be the victims, to anyone who listen?

Greetings, from the Swamp

So, that post I made, about all that water coming down in such a short period time? Apparently, there’s a price to paid, for finding fascination in such things.

The One Day Flood

This all happened from a single cloud burst, that lasted maybe an hour, if that. It’s that short period of time that it happened in, that makes it interesting, not its severity. We’ve had worse, and it’s pretty mild, by most people’s standards for a flood, I think. So, when I “flood” I basically mean “the low part of the back yard turned into a swamp, again.” Continue reading ‘The One Day Flood’

The Truck-Cat Lives

Finally getting close to finishing this thing. Mostly need to finish the new chase rack and the light bars. The rack is just set in place, in these pictures. I was more and more unhappy with the first one I built. It doesn’t have mounting feet, yet. It still needs tabs to attach the light bars, and I want to add some small tie downs to it. Those will probably just be little tabs, with holes in them for hooks or scale rope. Still need to get the fuel filler painted, too.

Just Like Old Times

Well, this is fun? No. Fun’s not the right word. This is interesting. And, I’d put in a relevant clip from Firefly right there, but I don’t think I can use YouTube, right now.

Another Truck-Cat Update

I should have numbered these….

I built a slider bar for the back of the chassis, to prevent tearing up the body, when the truck drops off of things. I built it to extend past where the bumper will be, and kick up at the end to come up behind the bumper. That kick at the end, gives me a place to attach a couple of D-ring tabs from Mad Dog RC. To those, I bolted some King Kong mini tow shackles, from RC4WD.
