America's Got Talent? The Voice?...

Man, the operatic talent coming from the depths of the Trump administration is deep!

And when he said he was hiring “the best”…man, I assumed he meant something that was applicable to government…not aria after aria after aria!

Driving down a National Forest Service Road...

this morning:

These are called “dikes” by the locals, but may be the official name also.

They were horizontal strata that were uplifted by tectonic/seismic forces to the vertical position. They may run for miles.

I liked this one because the road was put thru it, and then those beautiful aspens this time of year.

Question re: older vehicle maintenance...

1) 1999 Ford Ranger, 6 cyl, auto, 230,000 miles

2) 2003 Ford E350, 7.3 diesel, 260,000 miles

Both have been mechanically very well maintained, despite their looks.

What would be the best maintenance/repair manuals for this age of vehicles? Chilton? Something else?

You know…electrical diagrams, part numbers, etc, procedures/instructions for removing/replacing that hard to reach doohickey that you can’t even see up under that other stuff that you don’t really want to remove if you don’t have to.

And where would I purchase such a manual?

Thank you for any suggestions.
