Hibernation Time

The fuel stabilizer has been poured into the gas tank, the repaired cover is back on the truck, and Johnny will now count the days until Spring 2012. Tried to fire it up one more time before the cover went on, but the battery had apparently been done in by the freezing temperatures we've had over the last couple of nights. She cranked very slowly a few times and quit, as if to say "Um, yeah. Don't think so. Thanks for that fresh antifreeze. See ya around April."

I really wanted to have it rolling before this happened, but just couldn't come up with the cha-ching for the brake drums and front bearings we need. Hopefully the job situation will improve and come Spring I'll be driving this truck for the first time. That will be another video for sure! Speaking of that, the views are adding up at a pretty good clip for the first video. It's getting 80 to 100 hits every day. Very cool!

The weekly posts will continue, so keep coming back! And of course, please feel free to share the blog with your friends. Thanks!
