We went up Geer Hwy to Caesars Head. Close to a foot of snow on top...Hwy 11 was definitely a wreck with all the downed trees.Well my group decided to go to Hendersonville. We all the way up 25 to the big grade and cops are turning everyone around. Several big rigs couldn't get up the hill and the cops wouldn't let us go around. Hwy 11 was a wreck! Trees down everywhere.
I drove 11 from 178 to Boiling Springs after the Sassafras attempt and it got dark in a hurry. Got to use my roofrack long range lights to keep from running into the trees that were still all over. Worked great overall but they light up the street signs so much it hurt.We went up Geer Hwy to Ceasars Head. Close to a foot of snow on top...Hwy 11 was definitely a wreck with all the downed trees.
@Kajun, glad you are back on this side of the pond. In reference to your comment about being Toyotaless..... The last time I saw you, on trash pick up at Jones Gap you said... "I will be in Germany for a couple years and when I get back, I'm gonna get a 200 series." Just do it!I had two Toyotas. A 2004 Tacoma and the 97 FZJ80.
I sold both when I transfered to Germany. Two of the biggest mistakes I've ever made. I am back for a year and half and still Toyotaless.
To be fair to myself... No to simply lie to myself to make the hurt stop, I rationalize that the 80 wasn't powerful enough for future needs and plans for travel with a LC.
I see the error of my ways now. These folks squeezed 2000 hp out of their F1Z. I could have lived with less than a quarter of that.
If it were only that easy. At one point, I thought I had the better half sold on a 200. She wasn’t sure about the size and wanted captains chairs in the second row.
Loaner toolsAnyone have a 54mm socket for wheel bearings I can borrow? I refuse to spend $40 on amazon. I can order one for $14, but I expect shipping will take longer than I want to wait.
I have developed a noise in my front end. While turning the noise goes away on one side. I jacked the front end up and noticed some play on the wheels with my hands at 6 and 12. I am not sure when the last time my wheel bearings were repacked, but I am sure it is time. I may as well change them at this point. I am going to attempt to order the parts to be delivered in time to tackle the job next weekend.
