Default Side Yard Crawling pics

So I finally got off my lazy butt and decided to start making my track, I have had a pile of dirt in my driveway for the winter and I had to move it, wheelbarrow had a flat tire so I had to improvise with a bucket and my mothers old electric scooter... makes a great wheelbarrow, I had to do less work hehe.






I got about half way through the pile of dirt and had had enough shoveling, so I tossed down a few obstacles and took a well deserved break... until I destroyed my 2nd plastic geared servo in the week I have had this, I need to go get a nice metal gear hi torque servo. The wood was kindly donated by a tree that had to be cut down on my front yard, was well over 100 years old and half rotted inside.










Forgive the quality of pics, it was either batteries in my controller or camera... I chose to play

I bought a new wheelbarrow last summer, my first since buying a house, and was wondering why the heck it would bounce all over the place when wheeling across the yard; turns out the tire was low on air. I'd never even looked at the wheel on my dad's, figured they were solid rubber LOL

Try this Roundup plantkiller stuff, white bottle with a red cap at Lowe's and Home Depot, works great for killing any weeds of grass you want out of the way. I buzzed the part of my lawn at the lowest setting on my mower and then sprayed this stuff with a pump sprayer (it's a concentrate, needs to be mixed with water). After the stuff died it was easy to scrape off, now I'll use it for controlling any growth this summer. Just be careful; it says not to spray it on anything you don't want to die LOL
