As such, I thought it made sense to get the ATV readied for winter at the same time. I leave this operation to KC Automotive, as they are better equipped and more experienced to get right into the nuts and bolts on a machine with which I'm not mechanically familiar.
The actual tire fitting and winterizing took place on separate days, so I ended up returning a day or two later to pick up the ATV (as well as deliver a computer I had repaired earlier in the day).
It was very nice to return home and find Donna and Kenny exploring the end of the driveway. Donna managed to catch a shot of me on the highway coming in.
|The prodigal father returns!|
|Heading up the driveway.|
|And I disappeared as I turned around.|
|Awesome to have such a nice helper!|
|Linking all three together to create a wide platform.|
|And fastened to the truck so nothing can go wrong.|
|Got all the tires over the hump and starting down the ramp. Time to dismount!|
|Letting the winch do the hard part.|
|Cut high up the ravine and winched down to the trail by Grandpa.|
|Nice dry pine, ready for the sauna!|
|Easier to turn the arch separate from the ATV in this spot.|
|Abandoning the next birch log at a tight turn. I'll cut it up here and just carry it to the splitting zone.|
Life with Kenny and Donna around sure is good.
