76 F - Warm in VA

Swapping a transmission outside in warm temperatures under the lift in shorts and a tank top. This is awesome!

I hate you, it was in the teens yesterday while I was doing the front suspension. I gave up on doing the rear suspension today because I can't convince myself to sit in the snow and do it.

That's just wrong Raub! It's also why you have to drive so far for good wheeling though!

Was 70 this am flying out of DCA...here in Denver...not so much.

NoVA is relatively warm but wet at the moment! Erged as a team for 2 hours and left drenched in sweat.
