Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

Mrs. Tweedy and her husband Phil stopped by yesterday afternoon and visited with us for a few hours. It was great to see them and we appreciate them taking the time to stop by Oklahoma on their way to MOAB. Phil even let me drive his latest creation. Glad there is not much brush at MOAB as his creat...

Re: Zuks of KC - Moab, 2013

We have kept putting the decision off but just a moment ago we finally decided not to try and make the Zuks of KC get-to-gather at Moab. Sure would be fun to do it again. We now know there are better hotels there and the weather should be perfect but I really just do not feel like it. Maybe there wi...

An LJ with Oblivious Inspiration

In anticipation of driving “Miss Alice” inside Yellowstone National Park after the 2007 Meet in Cooke City, MT, I had a sign made which I installed on the spare tire. (see pic below) This was done in an attempt to lessen the common question “Why does that thing smoke so much?” Since then, have had n...

Re: Alternative shifters

Someone on the forums described the LJ shifting as being vague, which is about as accurate description as I have heard. This results in the driver’s frustration being taken out on.....what else? ....the shifter..... which soon makes matters only worse. When I first got Miss Alice, the shifter had so...

Re: Parts cleaning

I used to clean bearings and shoot them with compressed air and never thought it was dangerous. My friend was cleaning a SJ413 front wheel bearing for me and used the air and the bearing failed when it was spinning. Blew apart in his hands and he was lucky he didn't get hurt. When I was a kid worki...

Re: The connection between Twinkies and my first LJ

Never been to California so can’t say Russ. Do know the population of the one in OK has been on the decline, dropping 9% from 2000 to 2010. While one more wrecked vehicle may not be noticed, with the 2010 population of 141 it would sure be hard to hide a barn full of Twinkies from the coons, bobcats...

Re: The connection between Twinkies and my first LJ

I didn't know there was a Burbank in Oklahoma, but the warehouse I am referring to is in California. I could tell you exactly where, but then I'd have to kill you. :wink: So, in addition to having the same name, it looks like the two Burbanks are kind of the same in other ways. I don't know if Burb...

Burbank is just 15 miles by road from Kaw City OK and even closer if I walk. When you get time, please do a Google Earth on Burbank and tell me jus...

Re: The connection between Twinkies and my first LJ

Cool story, Larry. Guess you could have called the LJ "Twinkie" with some justification. I remember when we were in Disney and Russ's LJ was broke on the river bed past lunch time. I was hungry and complaining about it in a loud shrill voice. Your wife, Winnie, took pity on me and gave me a Twinkie...

The connection between Twinkies and my first LJ

The connection between Twinkies and my first LJ. In March of 1947, Dad started working for a rather large farm/ranch operation. Our neighbors owned another rather large farm/ranch operation. They lived about ¾ mile away. Their names were Glen, his wife Alice and their son Arlin who was already in th...
