It was 30 miles from home on ALL mountain roads.
Ah, I see. So the equivalent of about 496 miles of normal road -- not like right next door then.

I haven't done nothin' just yet.......but all those yeti are located in the PNW. I am yeti hunting.

Yeah I've been watching the weather, very interesting.

In the mean time we are truck shopping, Eric is a very happy man. He has always want that big dodge diesel, now he has an excuse to look for one. It would also be useful to pull the Kern trailer that is over in storage by the LB airport now.

Talking

I would dump the bottle jack and take a good, old, any position scissors jack. Scissors jacks collapse to a much smaller height and hydraulic jacks tend to be fussy about being used in any position except vertical.

I also would like to reiterate the bearing issue. I bought a panel truck from an auto dealer. Drove it around happily including the expressway. Then took it to my mechanic for oil change and inspections. He asked about the front wheel bearings. I agreed they should be looked at. THEY CAME OUT IN PIECES IN HIS HAND. My God if they would have seized on the Xway, I wouldn't be writing this post.

4. Racheting Tie-down Strap
(at least 2, possibly up to 6)
5. Magnetic Towing Light Kit

How did you get your Boler Home?
Nix on those Magnetic tow lights, unless you strap them down with cable ties...they vibrate off.
