Hillside chasing deer and hogs....
Did some hiking in the red rocks.
So had the meeting with the dealership and they're getting me the parts to make it right on they're dime. In the meantime I finally wrestled out the rest of the exhaust system (rear downpipes were a PITA).
Just for sheeit's and giggles I got out the bath scale and did some weighing
OEM pipes, clamps etc -16lb's
Cobra mufflers ----------- 17lb's
Stock muffler - wasn't gonna climb up and get it off the barn wall (boat anchor)
New Voodoo exhaust complete with mufflers and hardware-16/17lb's
Time to start putting it back together
Installed the new silicone hose's today and test fitted the new exhaust.
The cylinder head hose clamps were fun talk about tite fit.
And the new exhaust
Cleaning and touch-up painting today
Cup 'o' tea in the backyard
Get Ready, Get Set, MOW
Took care of the grass/manicured weeds for the folk's today.
You have a very nice place sir!
I had to go around Parkersburg, WV, so stopped at Fort Boreman Park, built 1863.
It overlooks Parkersburg where the Little Kanawha River flows into the Ohio River.

Took my friend on a desert bushwalk as he is wanting to develop some wilderness skills. Besides pointing out a bunch of different plants, eating cactus fruit, catching and cooking crawfish, we also spent time doing some fire skills (tinder selection, ferro rod, flint and steel, solar, and poachers/scouts fire lay). Also went over locating water in the desert, and we dug a seep well (and drank from it once it settled). He seemed to enjoy it and I’m sure it’s not our last trip.
Mower maintenance and more mowing
Did an overnight with a friend who is just beginning his wilderness skills journey. Definitely honored to be a part of it. Anyway, some pics from the trip.
Quick stop by the Skyline Drive-In, Hilltop, WV. (Hank's Last Stop)
Jan 1, 1953, Hank Williams' limo driver stopped here, and noticed Hank Williams unresponsive/dead in the back seat.
Yesterday, biking in the NF.
All day fog and rain off and on.
Too many up hills.
A good day.
I did a short 4 mile hike at Kanawha State Forest today.
Used my HPG Junction pack. It was pretty comfortable.
Sat in the treestand for a little while yesterday
I drove up to Dolly Sods, WV for some leaf color pics, but it was rainy and clouds/fog moved in so no views.
So went by Canaan Valley State Park for better views.

Climbed to the highest point in AZ yesterday. Definitely was hella windy and cold, but definitely worth it!
Ran into this guy too at around 11,600 feet. If any of you are on IG or hang around the Esee, LT Wright, and HPG booths you may recognize Ty (Pronghorn Jack). Not planned, just a small world.
Update on the Kennedy tool box restoration.
