1st Snow of 2012~~~~~ 1-21-12

1st real snow of the season.....

- A quick-hitting winter storm brings the heaviest snow since the late October snowstorm to parts of the Northeast.

- Additional snow accumulations of 1 to 6 inches are expected from Pennsylvania to central New England.

- The heaviest snow, 3 to 6 inches, should fall from central Pennsylvania through Connecticut.

- City forecast totals: 3 to 5 inches in New York City and 2 to 4 inches in Philadelphia and 1 to 3 inches Boston.

Looks like I will have to postpone any jeep plans I had for this weekend .. Really needed to get some good pict of the XJ to sell it

And put on the new trailer hitch + wiring on the WJ.

We had about 5"

Pure One Filter..14670
$18.98 oil change..

I have only been Driving about 3k per year.....so in 8 more years --- should have only 73k...on it..

Inspected the systems. Looked it over..Have some more fluids to change..possibly in spring.

Aired up the really really low tires ( 14,16,front 21,22 rear)

XJ -------------------------------------- end games..?....1-11-12

Well with 4 days left with the '00 XJ..... the Jeep continues to give me a tough time til the end..

The Starter went on Monday..... starts very strong now...I guess the starter has been losing power for some time now...
get it home--- let it idle in the driveway for 5 min...no heat sink but the engine light comes on ......again.( checked it with my code reader ( Po303 = #3 cylinder misfire.)

9 years and hardly a problem-- now in the last 2 months:

- Cat Back...$400
- Water Pump ..$379
- Starter $ 300
- 2 Inspection tickets $50 & $75 Dec 15th and Jan 5th...

every since the water pump blew - it's been heat sinking like crazy --- cooling fan come on with in 10 min of driving..

happened again this AM as soon as I got to the train.

...

we'll see how well it sells....got get rid of it ASAP.

Breaking up is hard to do...

Went over to Sign the Docs for the WJ tonight. Awesome POTROAST dinner to boot.

pd


ps -- 4 year Anniv of the closing on our house...went to LI Grill and it was terrible... Raw fish + old menus..old knives -- old everything.. falling apart.. not worth the $50.. sad

New Year's Day / reel maintenance ~ 1-1-2012

New Year's Day/reel maintenance ~ 1-1-2012

Starting off the new years with the bad really sick 4 days on the couch not moving ....

got all the good reels from the garage ,took off all the old line swapped on some semi new line from a never used Daiwa..still need new line
on one or two reels and I'm planning on getting a new redesigned 2012 Shimano stradic 3000 FJ for spring no more used reels now i have a good fleet of 4 Saros 3000f reels...

So far I am most impressed with the shimanos .. Have to sell many old reels to get the new one including a used stradic 3000fi I picked up for only 66 on eBay .. That was never right.. As well as some other reels that we're never used

Can't wait for spring already and it's just the first day of the year
