I知 going to kill this fan again

She survived a fight with this fan last summer bending a blade and won the fight a little sore with a small cut on her head. Now she is posing for a photo op with her kill. Fan repaired but with a screen so she can稚 get inside and kill my fan again. She said I killed this fan once and I will do it again lol. My legs are fried so it is lawn watering day dang I am bored Trying to resist the beer cave and the meat market it is a great day for a beer and something tasty on the smoker. I will probably cave in.


Go ahead turn that fan on. I dare you!

Everyone has heard of an "underdog". I appears you have an "overcat". She is exerting her dominance over the fan by napping on top of it. Such is the nature of cats.

Yup went to the beer cave and the meat market got a slab of bacon wrapped pig and added some more Fiesta local San Antonio pork rub. Jamming to Iron Maiden and TOOL and smoking a pig with a cold beer lol.

That bike behind the fan, I can't recall seeing it in your photos before. Is that a 3" tire? Looks about the same as the volume on my Krampus

Motobecane Boris. 2x10 upgraded the crank to Sram added better grips basic slight upgrades. The Panaracer tires worthless in snow but great in sand and loose gravel so no problems there. 26x4.00 plenty for the local environment. Odd setup for a fatty 135mm front wheel a 170mm for the rear. Non typical I can’t recall what most fatbike dimensions are because this is a fun F off bike lol. BB in 110mm will throw off that Q factor if you even give a F. 5 inch tires will not fit but I will never need them so that may be a draw back. But in S Texas and the SW USA it rolls like a monster truck over everything. I will run 15-20 psi which is extreme fie fat-bike tires so I can roll over the terrain. Tire pressure just experiment find what you like. Spent only 700 and the bike has been great.

I could see snow every winter if I wanted, by driving up into the nearby mountains: Julian, Laguna, Palomar, or up nearer L.A. there is skiing at Big Bear and, um, the other one

I usually have to drive to see snow too. Went to Cabin Creek for the first time this weekend, did the black diamond Ozbaldy. But not as fearlessly as I like.

If it were a Big Ass Fan you had, you'd be considering names like "Two Points," "Flyin' Kitty" or some such. Or even, given the size of some of those things, she'd be your "One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple ..." Well, you get the idea.

Be thankful for the little things.

neighbors that moved left me that fan. It痴 a fan you see on warehouses that store cotton or other ag products. Moves a lot of air and cools the garage down ok in the blazing summer. Makes it at least tolerable. Home made wooden frame house the fan.
