Hey I was a paratrooper and also did a lot of helicopter repelling...no problem when you have confidence in your equipment...but I still pucker up without it ... like on a ladder or roof ;D

I still get the "willies" when cleaning the rain gutters. I strap myself to the swamp cooler and get real low near the edges. 😊

Probably why my wife paid to have leaf screens installed on all of our gutters a couple months back!

I don't do this anymore.

Another great one and especially appreciated this morning, Thanks! I think I enjoyed the scenery more with you driving,  :o Arches is one of my favorite places and your photos show it off well. Like all of the Red Rock country it constantly changes with light, season and weather. It's always the same and never the same.  :)

Glad you enjoyed it.
I've been avoiding the TV lately and doing these videos. Nice to get away and look back on better times.😊

I used to love driving in the snow until so many people moved here. They close roads here that never used to be closed because of so many helpless drivers and then the idiots use their GPS to find another route that usually wouldn't be a good choice in good weather.

Sixball we were talking month or so about the minor amounts of snow that gets everything shut down these days. These days cars get stuck or just can't move with just a couple inches.

I think it's the combo of quick steering, lower cars, fatter tires and stupid peolpe around any more.  My neighbor swears the older cars had better weight transfer with the longer over hang behind the rear tire. I still like driving in the snow,   if it weren't for the other idiots out there that won't take their foot of the brake pedal!

The warning of an approaching bad driver is the one wearing the mask and is the only one in the car!

Sammons, I could not agree more with everything you said there.
 Last night I finally broke down and ordered winter tires and wheels for my wife's 2014 Grand Cherokee. They don't seem to make many aggressive tires in sizes that the computer would tolerate. Because of our unique road conditions and the lack of maintenance , me  ::), aggressive tread is necessary. It has 18" wheels  with 265/60R 18. I found some 17" tires but could not verify if 17" wheels would clear the brakes and I could not for sure locate 17" wheels. Mu old '53 pickup with 750X 16 mud and snow tires and a dead 327 in the bed handles the road well except on the worst conditions. 4 of those tires on the old blazer are killer, I wish it was on the road.  :(  I also had to buy TPSM sensors so the computer can go nuts if I lower the pressure for better traction.  ;D
