remember when i said the ring gear bolts in the rear end got loose and started backing out? idk if i said that up here or not but w/e, i'm pretty sure the bent axle shaft rattled them loose..

same theory on the front end, im pretty sure that because the driveshaft was unbalanced it rattled stuff loose and the front gears are now done. you can move the yoke all around thats why im looking for new gears, preferably already setup in a housing

for sure!

the fire we had saturday night i saw from a few miles away!
it was on top of a hill





pop quiz for everyone.
What ever happened in Wyoming Military wise? Medicine Bow National Forest to be more exact(the smaller one)

because we found a bunker. Thick reinforced cement walls, thick steel door frame those wedge type windows on top of the hill we had the fire on.. anyone?

idk they might be Elk. but the pics are hard to tell. but they have the mouth area of a moose and the leg movements of one too. who knows i guess

female Moose



Elk are like a big deer kinda. and moose have lanky legs, and the Elk are going to look fatter and shorter

they're elk. Doesn't surprise me they came that close. It all depends on their territory. In Estes Park there's a heard that lives through the town, not surprising to be 5-10 yards away. March I was up there, saw 2 of them butting racks... thats a badass sight to see... to big, powerful animals ramming eachother like that.
