Pinch of dead husband in an ivory and gold owl pendant, box'o'dead husband went up with the temple in 2011, and the rest of him to Lake Powell, (at his request,) just days after returning from the '11 burn.
No more dead stuff for me, at least for now. Too busy living!

Dammit Bill, he's still here, and I don't mind his presence at all. He makes me do all the right stuff.
Thanks, Dammit Bill! 8)

Dammit! I cant wait to be done with this job. I finally found a job I like doing but my Boss is horrible (and its her company so I cant do much but quit). Giving English Horseback riding lessons, fun job, get to work with horses (I grew up on a horse ranch so its nice) but what started as an "Assistant" position has turned into me giving 90% of the lessons when she isn't even there. Now I work with Her and two other people, one a friend from high school and the other a friend of his. All of them are buddy buddy and hang out all the time with me being the odd man out. Next week they are all going to Hawaii for the week and leaving me to take care of 16 horses and give lessons on my own for no extra pay (She payed me next week in advance so I do know its no extra pay). If I wasn't just a animal person I would just give the lessons and lie about working the horses, but I would feel bad about the horses not getting out all week. They complain all the time about how much time I spend sitting or taking breaks, then when I show them the board (where we write which horse got out and what we did with it) and that I get out around half the horses every day on my own out of four of us and they just shrug it off. I've been told that while I was at the burn barely anything got done, you would usually think they would realize how much I do and treat me a little better but I guess it just doesn't work out that way for the people who do the work...

Well that's about half of the rant that's running around my head. I need to get my vehicles figured out so they will run and I can get some real money off of them instead of selling them as projects then I can pick up and go on an adventure. I could really use some happiness for more than just two weeks out of the year.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

GODDAMMIT BILL! OpenOffice/LibreOffice has been actively deleting inserted comments in documents since at least 2011 and not ONCE has a developer bothered to write the five line patch it would take to warn the end user about it? Why in the six bleeding hells am I the Nth user to complain about having lost hours and hours of work in more than two years!

So angry I could spit.

Dammit Bill! today there was a potluck at work. Big push in morning meetings: "remember the potluck!" The store was supposed to provide plates, and utensils.
Let's see what we ended up with:
two plates of baked goods, a sugar free apple pie, bowl of candy.
I brought pork chile verde, rice, beans, and tortillas.
There were no plates, or utensils.

REALLY? Bill?! wtf? over one hundred employees?

Poor Elorrum. Even the store didn't come through. Well, burners appreciate your dedication to carrying your end. Don't party with those idiots. Unless, you find value in being the only person, or almost the only person, to do this.

Dammit Bill!

The axle is rated at 2000.

The "Pod" so far is at 1800.

The tires are 195/65r/15 91H.

I would be suprised if it weighs 2500 packed for the playa, but you know how we like to over engineer.

I would have liked to be safe at 4000. 8)

well, I tell ya FJ, why not tag another axle on? easy enough, I may even have one here you can have. Meaning I have 3, just depending on the lug pattern of your rims, so they all match. Or, I have a matched pair we can cut down (very wide now). springs and hangers included. evenr rims and tires.
flat tires become less hazardous by degrees!! you can run on 3 or even 2 two. way over engineered, spring wise etc.

It's more the tires themselves I'm concerned about.

Found some 225/75/15 Es that would have handled the wieght, but whoever built the base trailer got the tollerance to close on the wheel wells, so nothing bigger than what I have will fit.

I didn't think about it when I started building, so now it would take more work than I want to do to fix it, since it's almost done. :lol:

My own fault.

again though, seems it'd be easy enough to hang another axle under on the nice flat frame.I can make it for you. what is the bolt pattern, 5 on 5"? 4.5"?

even if the new axle is a little wider, than the one behind it, it's ok.

Figjam, as Ygmir says, two axels would be better. Specially since you seem to say that you want to weigh 4000 punds with one 2000 pound axle, which does not compute.
But with the tire clerance problem, you may be able to buy wheels with different offset (less "back spacing"). Or even have the old wheels modified. Car racers used to have the center reversed in the rim. Look for a wheel shop, they are out there.

I was told by the seller that it was a 2000# axle, but according to this site and the messurement I just took, it's 2 3/8" which is 3500#.

Damnit Bill! sorry about your sliced digit, AntiM. When I big owie a finger, I hold it up about eye level, and squeeze it in my other fist for a while. If it's bleeding, I think pressure helps it to stop. If it's throbbing and gonna swell up, holding it up helps too. Either way, it gives me something to do, and I don't have to look at it.
