    I worked my fricking rear off. And lemme tell you, it's HOT outside. From May 30 to last night I was up at the Boy Scout camp working the first week of camp. If I didn't have a real job in the real world, I think I'd still be there. But man, am I tired.

    I had a busy weekend.
    I cut down a large maple tree in my front yard and sectioned it for fire wood on Saturday.
    Sunday I excavated and leveled the sides of my driveway 12" out on one side and 10' out on the other, formed it up, and prepped for a load of paving blocks that are due to arrive any minute now.
    Tomorrow I'll be laying bricks around the side of the house and finishing a brick planter out front.
    Wednesday I'm gonna change the oil and do maintenance on the bike and the boat.
    Thursday I'll be on the lake all day.

    I went down to Rock Springs and raced RC Cars. :) Nice and chilly with a rain/snow mix Saturday morning, highs in the mid-50s with 20-30mph winds. Here's a pic of my 2wd truck.

    Awesome. When I was a kid these batteries only lasted like 5 minutes, are they any better now?

    There is a defunct RC track near where I used to live. It would be fun to buy that and resurrect it and turn it into an RC megatrack.

    Completely different now. Most guys are running lipo batteries with brushless motors now. So upwards of 20 minute run times. Everybody uses 2.4Ghz so now frequency issues. Lots of changes in the last 5 years.

    This race also had several nitro classes. In all, your average electric racer probably has about $500 into it per car. Your Nitro racer is upwards of $1200-$1500.

    Fun stuff,great big boy toys. :)

    Went camping for the first time this year. First weekend with my cast off in 3 weeks. SWWWWWEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTT! Course I was at the camp site 20 mins and the water pump blew out on my camper. The same camper that I had brought to the dealership for 4 weeks and cost me $600 to fix. But I learned how to replace the pump in my camper.

    I got my hand chewed up by some fire ants over the weekend. Picked up some mulch that had been sitting in one spot for three weeks and there was a whole fire ant colony under there. They started moving like crazy carrying their eggs away and about 20 of them bit me on my hands. YIKES!

    :grrrrrr: Fire Ants Must Die! :grrrrrr:

    Installed the 2500HD rear leaf springs in my truck, with a little torsion bar crank to level it out, and was able to fit the 35's... Overall, a productive weekend.
