Steering box adjustment
The van’s steering wheel has a lot of slop in it and needs to have the steering box adjusted, so today was the day.
Once I got the belly pan off, I decided to give my sore back and rest and take a break from that for awhile.
Headed up into the forest
I headed on home and when I got there, I realized I’d forgotten my phone up there where I was sitting, so I rode on back up there to retrieve the phone.
While I was up there, I walked out a trail I want to work on this winter and studied what I will do to improve it to make a better trail for humans.
Then, back down to the house for a wee nap.
New trail cams
I checked the mailbox for the new cams and they had arrived. I’m hoping these will get much better night shots than my old cams. Only problem now is I’m out of batteries for these, but they are on the list to get some. I’ll have to remove some from one of the other cams for now.
After that I put the battery charger on my Toyota and soon Tom came by with a battery out of his tractor that he said was twelve years old and was going bad. I had one in my old car that was almost new so I offered it to him. We put that battery on the charger too, with the Toyota. I have two battery chargers.
Back to the steering box
I drove the van down the road a bit to test it out and it seemed much better.
Maybe a hinge
Once I got the belly pan back on, I did some measuring to see about putting a hinge on it to get into stuff easier without removing the belly pan. I think it can be done, but not today, maybe next time I have to remove it, I’ll do it.
