I took momma for some ice cream and then a drive out through the fields.

Our friends Todd and Lisa showed up with their recently finished LJ.

Then cruised through the field, for sunset, saw many deer, but the dash camera did not pick them up which is to bad. While we saw about 10 or so deer out at the edge of the lights. and some nice colors of the horizon, the return presented a sweet moon.

Went to the Admiral Twin drive in movie theater while visiting my home town Tulsa, Oklahoma. Several Jeeps there with tops and doors off. Another JL parked beside me for an excellent photo op! Refreshing to see how the drive in theater is thriving.
Pics are not in any particular order.

BTW, this is the drive in where the drive in movie scenes were filmed for the movie the Outsiders.

He, Todd did the full restore including the paint work. It is even better in person. He finished it a couple weeks ago. He owns probably 10 or so Jeeps. Very super guy, his wife is a great person also. Just an all around great couple to hang out with. They will be meeting me in Moab for EJS in 2022.

Put it to use for yard chores. Pulled several deep rooted bushes that had died. Wrapped tow strap around base of bush, connected to rear d-ring, and gave it gas.
Man, I wish that had worked on my pear trees. About 10-15 years ago, some wild pears took root in a whiskey barrel planter sitting on top of patio blocks. I cut them back every so often, but never got rid of them while I still could. They eventually sent roots out of the barrel, through the blocks, and down into the ground. Now I have an impossible nightmare to figure out. Most of the roots are in the center of a 24" mass of multiple tree trunks that have glommed together over the years, along with chunks of the patio blocks that broke off inside the root mass.

I hacked through as many roots as I could access, hooked a tree saver around the whole mess, and tried tugging on it with my 10,000 lb. winch. Yeah, that's not happening.

If I had tried yanking it with a kinetic strap, I probably would have just ripped the back bumper off, or busted out my patio door.

I'm just screwed. I need to rent a back hoe or something. Or maybe call one of those wreckers for big trucks. That might actually be an option. I got pulled out of a mud hole myself the other day, and that guy had like 1" diameter steel cable on his four winches.

Hmmmmm....

Anyway, I'm glad it went well for you.

I prepped it for 8 days of wheeling in the UP, 4 days on Drummond Island, and then 4 days of wandering the shore of Lake Superior. The colors should be at their peak. Bonus, my wife retired yesterday. There will be 10 of us with 3 JLURs, a trail hawk Cherokee and a 4runner. 6 of them will only do Drummond Island and head home on Sunday. While the 4 of us continue on.

Just have to add water to the camper in the morning and we are gone.
