Since that job has been skipped over for the past 2 months, it is a possibility. It seems there is always something more interesting to do than re-pack hubs.

I was out there today and passed on doing the hubs since I heard Jim was doing it. He was MIA though.

Hubs are done. List is pretty much complete.

Did a few laps around the yard.

Everything on the list is done. We unloaded the trailer, sorted out what spares and tools we needed, and then loaded it all back in.

Jesse managed to get stuck in my driveway on the way to pick up Coville's old 4418that we are delivering to its new owner. Luckily my neighbor was home, and he brought out the deuce and a half and pulled him out of the snow bank without breaking a sweat. My neighbors rock.

We winched the 4418 up into it's perch for its ride out about as smoothly as you could expect. Then we loaded the 4517 backwards and our rear tire carrier tucks perfectly into the empty tire carrier on the 4418. Should leave plenty of room for Casey's Cherokee. Now he just has to finish his rig and get it loaded.

Tomorrow night is for packing and spending some time with our family before being gone for a week. Train should be pulling out of Fenton on Friday night.

We went through tech yesterday and weighed in. This was car fully fueled and only thing not on it was a tool bag.

She lived up to her name at 4690lbs.
