The countdown that had an unknown ending is about to end.
The project finally sees an end..
The EV I was working on for months finally found a new owner, away off to California. (thanks to e-bay)
It fetched a very good price, ended with quite a competition among the several people who wanted it. Loaded on a big car hauler and sent on it's way.
Now I'm doing a bit of work on my old 3/4 T 4x4 dodge, decided to try it for the trip south. I purty much know it inside and out having had most of it apart and repaired at some time or other. It dosn't look like much having been rolled twice before I got it, an old beat up off road truck pulling an old rusty stock trailer, just my kind of rig LOL! I'll be taking a pile of tools along, I've had to do repairs on the road before. Bearings gave out in a front wheel once, but it happened right next to where a retired man lived who was happy to take me to a parts store.
For the uninformed; I'm chasin after a horse I discovered for sale a year and a half ago, wanted because he was out of the line of horses I'd already rode and found them the nicest ride I ever had, but couldn't afford right away He was still there a year later when I was able to go down to FL and ride him, made the deal to buy him as soon as my EV was sold, thinking I could sell it in a month or 2, but every time I thought it was about ready something else popped up to be fixed. but finally all the fixing came to an end when I could drive it without issues. It was a 16 year old electric car made by US electricar I bought dead as a project. Anyway, it's gone, I'm happy with the sale. And ready to pass a little on to the trainer of my soon to be trail runner.
Some people like these particular horses so much someone has started a facebook group to pull them together. And as pleasure/trail horses in spite of a poor econimy they're still bringing prices good enough for a breeder to make a profit. After riding one myself I understand, the quality is evident.
If it wasn't already obvious, I'm a mechanic, an electronics technician, an inventor of sorts, farmer, and several other things, along with being a lover of good horses. I'm self employed, always have been, I just do whatever shows up to be done, and lately I've had to turn down some jobs/projects in order to persue those things I really want to get done. Never made much $$ because I was always doing stuff to eliminate the need for much $. make my own hay, clearing land for some pasture lately and selling pulpwood for $ to get by. I'm on the verge of some technology that may make me a steady income once it's set up. I'll get it going and then retire (from tryin to make $ anyway) But I'll never quit working, gettin things done is just too much a part of life. growing my own food and ridin horses is what I wanna do.
