Pool Party at Pullstart Stables

Recommended Posts

Very cool to be able to visit the Pullstart family at their place for a change!  The kids are loving to hang out with each other and anytime I can get my hands greasy—I’m a fan!  

 

Mrs. P made a delicious supper meal which we thoroughly enjoyed—many thanks!

 

The kids loved the time in the 70 degree water while the air temps were dipping into the low 50’s.  I have been around pools many times but have never seen someone through a bunch of glow sticks in the pool...B3C247AA-3C40-4668-9DBA-F61C14248B98.jpeg.6eae3d7daa56b41b7469de0231695edf.jpeg

made for a really cool ambiance! Judge was drooling all over Kevin’s full dresser Harley!  I told him that he needs to grow a little bit more before he can drive something that size😉

 

Hopefully tomorrow we can make some more headway on Norman.  With Pullstart’s mods, this truck should not only be bulletproof but also a really strong towing machine.

Mrs. P’s idea... our third execution of the summer and the most successful by far!  500 sticks in the pool!

Claudia did a great job gathering the most, but in the end, it might be this guy cleaning the rest up!  It’s still above 70 at least!

Norman made leaps and bounds of headway in the shop

Watch the help they don't leave wrenches in the bell housing!

I dropped a socket in the auto bellhousing taking it apart, couldn’t fish it out for the life of me until I separated the two!

Camping out in Pullstart’s awesome camper is like a mini home away from home.  Much to the kids dismay, right now it is a school house...

I love the pull out sides...this is my first time to spend any serious time in one and I’m amazed how much larger it makes the living space.

@Coulter Caleb working on Geometry and Claudia is pushing through Algebra.  One consolation is that the sooner they get this paperwork done, the sooner they can get to some real “education” with the pullstart Gang—wrenching on Norman, driving horses—testing out gravity, inertia, and friction in a real world setting!  

 

Thanks Kevin for the awesome digs!

My parents love to go RV-ing. They have a small group of friends that meets at several different times and places throughout New England over the course of a summer.

 

I accompanied them to a dealership at one point when they were looking at campers for sale.

We went inside one that was too big for them to be interested in but we just wanted to check it out.

It was meant to be pulled with a 2 ton medium duty or larger and was compatible with standard tractor trailer fifth wheels.

The living space box was a full 40 ft long.

The living room area was at the back and was a double slide.

When both of them were open that area was roughly 16 x 16 ft. 

 

King size bed up in the front over the fifth wheel hitch. That was also a slide out.

 

Impressive rig to say the least.

 

Across the front were the words

Honestly Uncle Jim, I didn’t know I was coming up here for sure until Monday morning.  We had two weeks of meetings scheduled in Ohio and when I realized how close Toledo was to Pullstart Stables, I reached out to my man Kevin...

 

 

However, I’ll gladly take my penance. You just point me to the furrow...

Well besides the extra furrows it would behoove you to fix Dan's @Achtos spindle when it breaks again!

Really nice to see you guys running that 401 Kev! Told you the the best running Clinton I had. Better than sitting in my shed collecting dust. Enjoy! :)
