Look what is getting put in, just in time for winter.
What is all the white stuff outside and why is it cold? Why is the human going out in this?
Not much snow at the house.
More where I was hiking at rescue trail.
I never knew there was a lake over there. I also found a sign, but couldn’t read it because it was only on one side. When I made it to the side it said to not go past the sign. I was walking where I wasn’t supposed to be.
Scared a few big horn sheep.
Found a few tracks.
Few elk hanging around work.
Few more waiting on me when I got home.
This was also the day where the battery in the BMW could take no more and died. The jump box I had worked for one jump and I had to get another from a coworker. Got the car home and will have to get another battery. Another car part adventure awaits. I have never changed a battery myself and this one in in the back to add to the fun.
First I have to take the door apart. Didn’t realize that I also had to remove the airbag from the door. Was very careful doing that.
Have to get the old locking mechanism one out and the new one in. The black tip with the ball joint is just supposed to pop on. Well after about an hour of messing with it I figure out that the replacement one and the original are not the same size. I had to take the old and new one apart and swap some of the parts to make it work.
All of this had to happen through this opening into the door as I didn’t want to take the vapor barrier off and have to get yet another part.
All back on and the door lock works!
But not a complete success. I ended up striping the left side of the handle connector. I have to open the door with more pressure where the key goes or the left side will pop out. Not happy about this, but I can now open the driver side door and the locks work again.
While winter is fading at the house, it hasn’t let go in the park. We have to go out with the Bull Crew so we have people that know what they are doing with bad travel so they can help us if needed.
This house is where we were working setting up a network and connecting PCs.
The snow ended for the ride back to the office.
Back at the office the snow is almost gone as well. Just have to watch out for this guy while walking around.
