Zuwharrie Info / Official 2017 Zuwharrie weather girl
Ah!  The all important element while we're out wheeling...the weather!  We all plan for the worst and hope for the best.  Hey, we'll have fun anyway.  Maybe even with the forecast.   ;D  Still, we'd like to know what to plan for regarding weather.  So here we are!  We have our very own weather forecast, right here on the Zu. 

Now, it's tradition we have the annual weather girl.  Let's just say some are uh..."hotter" than others, just like the weather!!  So will it be hot this year?  Could be....

General Chit Chat / Zu Do list
Tick, tock.  The clock continues to rock.  And so does the Zu!  What do you still have to do?

Jenn's 3 speed is operational that still needs odds and ends.  Maybe a locker?  Who knows!  Or just wheel it like it is.   ;D
General Chit Chat / 'runk posting
You could Giggle it.  Or you could simply search for it here.  Truth is, there's no need.  I'll provide an example for you.  ;D

Let vacation begin biotches!   [lol]

General Chit Chat / Happy Birthday Mikew

General Chit Chat / RIP Bill Paxton
We were watching Tombstone just last night.  Another great has checked out too soon.  2017, please stop being like 2016.   [worried]
General Chit Chat / Minor update, slight headache
Hey gang.  A minor update was missing a key bit of info from the devs: old themes won't work.  Many apologies for the inconvenience.  I'll fix the things that aren't working properly.  The theme will get repaired as well.  Thanks for your patience! 
General Chit Chat / Banished. Second night
I write to you from the camper.  This is my second night sleeping in the backyard in Feb.  You may ask what I've done to deserve this?  Was it another woman?  Did I get drunk and lose all the bill money in a game of Old Maid?  Or...gasp...did I park on the wrong side of the driveway? 

The answer is even worse than anyone could imagine. 

Jenn tested positive yesterday for the flu.  This banishment is self imposed!  Can this evil plague be avoided?  I don't know.  All efforts must be exhausted before I am.  Wish me luck!

And just so it's said, the camper sleeps very well.  ;D
General Chit Chat / 2017 Zuwharrie event registration
Hey gang!  Quick reminder:  the 17 Spring registration is up and running!  We will be basing the food order off the number of people registered beforehand.  We try to have extra for stragglers.  However, should we run short, preregistered people will have preference.  You know that tax refund is on it's way shortly.  Don't be afraid....sign up!!!!!!!   [thumbsup]
General Chit Chat / My big ol' sack o' nuts
I had a birthday just before Christmas.  My brother in law and sister gave me a sweet gift.  A big bag of peanuts!  These things are delicious.  If you have the opportunity pick up a sack of your very own!
General Chit Chat / Moar server work
The basic plan is to move to a new, upgraded server.  I will try to make this happen with as little downtime as possible.  In order to minimize the impacts, attachment uploads will be disabled until we're up and running on the other side.  Thanks for your understanding, and thanks for being part of the best Suzuki site on the planet.  ;D

Happy Birthday!  Have a cold one and celebrate in style.  ;D
General Chit Chat / Thread chaser - you're doing it wrong
Anyone who's used a thread chaser knows what maddernhell is.  That T handle thing that's such a pain to load with the actual tool, the cheap ones that strip out, the invariability the work location is juuuuust tight enough that T handle won't fit in there, all make ya maddernhell.   ;D

Clever tool use.  It's what makes some of us marginally smarter than a baboon.  Occasionally even I have an epiphany.

That chaser drive sure looks quarter inch.  L.I.B.  It is!  Flip around a 1/4" to 3/8" ratchet adapter, slip and 11mm ratchet wrench over it (or 12 point socket).  NOW we have something.  Easy loading.  Works in pretty tight spots.  Much easier on the wrists too.  Boom shacka lacka!
Samurai Tech / Rockingirl build

Jenn's new rig will be a basic build.  It's already spoa with a 1.6 8v.  It rides and drives better than any Zuk I've personally experienced.  So I don't want to negate it's strengths.  It's super road worthy.  8)   But, it could use improvements and personalization. 

First up?  Power steering!  Just the basic track kick swap, with my own twist to it.  Mostly straightforward.

Remove the box and radiator bracket.  An impact gun makes life much better.  Remove the steering shaft.  Grind the cup off the frame.  Clean up the area. 

General Chit Chat / Going to Uwharrie
If you're going to Uwharrie here is a stop for you.  Just south of Denton on 109 is a taco truck.  The pictar can say the rest.

Zuwharrie Info / Spring 17 Official Zu announcement
The dates are set!!  With the way Easter falls this year, there has been some, uh, confusion when it comes to setting these dates.  My apologies to everyone trying to set their vacation time.  Blend in other schedules and we end up with....

....and it actually should be good timing....


Spring Zu will be April 27-30, 2017! 

It's still early to include all the details.  Stay tuned as we hash those out.  [thumbsup]
