Quote from: jumbojak on September 14, 2022, 02:31:36 AMIt bothers me that there's only a working brake on one wheel. Don't know who is going to crash it through the gate when the last brake fails but I hope it isn't me.

the brake stuff is kind of, important.

is it a fix they wiuld let you do?

That missing wheel is important. The bigger the truck the more it counts on points of contact.

I can live with ours not having a straight axle. It bothers me that there's only a working brake on one wheel. Don't know who is going to crash it through the gate when the last brake fails but I hope it isn't me.
I can see that, but this was one of them... Them-looking things, only with bigger huwheels (Or maybe same wheel size, though in a smaller vehicle)


A crane or a bridge or some combination thereof, methinks. Its load under transport is basically whatever is always on its back.

They keep talking about fixing it. Honestly, if it worked properly another department would say they needed the truck and get it, which would put us in a terrible bind. That's probably part of the reason for putting it off.

The doors don't lock. Some days the windows don't even go up and down. Today I got a photo of the truck going down the road. Two out of four wheels touching pavement. Too bad I can't post it here.

equinox!

tonight at 2103 EST

that would be GMT plus five.

this evening i can stand on my front porch and watch the sun set behind my neighbors barn on the ridgetop two miles to the west. it only does that twice per year.

tomorrow it will set one diameter north of the barn.

the big cosmic clock ticks twice per year, and i wont get another tick for six months.
