It continues ...

The Coot Scoot is making me crazy.

There's this part - it's called the "Boss Pin".  It's stuck on the crankshaft.  I've frozen it.  I've heated it.  I've used a gear puller.  It will not come off.  I'm being tested.  Tested, I tell you.  And I'm not doing very well.

The thing is, I can't ride until this particular job is finished.  I have to replace this part.  By hook or by crook I HAVE to get this done.  If this is a contest, I MUST win.  If this is a test, I MUST pass - I will not fail.  I cannot.

It was such a gorgeous day today.  Pleasant temp and puffy clouds in an otherwise sunny sky.  I couldn't ride.  That made me sad.  I worked at it, I can't get that part off - and that made me sad.

Your favorite things aren't supposed to make you sad.

WD-40 or duct tape... one or the other works on everything.

I hope you'll get it fixed soon. After that, the fun begins!

Wow! Tara could be a bona fide Alaskan. :)

I hope the scoot gets fixed soon.
