My siblings and I, all born in the early 60s, were fascinated by the prairie trains. Growing up in Montreal, we saw trains but usually pulled by one locomotive. Then while driving across Canada, pulling a Terry travel trailer with a Chev Townsman station wagon, we saw our first prairie train that seem to go on forever. Three locomotives and sometimes four; so cool. I may not be old enough to remember steam but I do remember when the caboose was a standard.

My parents had an early 60s Chev wagon...I'll have to dig up a photo and identify it sometime.

A brake disk. And yes and yes. I joined a bunch of stuff end to end and on a 90 degree. I also welded a nut to the brake disk and pounded it with a large ballpeen. It did come off but took quite a few whollops.

I learned much in that one day! But yes, much more practice and learning required.

Yup, fully clothed, no flip flops, proper leather welding gloves, and auto-darkening helmet, plastic not medieval armoured one.

I have soldered lots but never welded at all, stick, MIG, TIG, Flux core; nothing.

I actually had a blast with the flux core....meant to only try the machine and ended up wasting a whole day welding everything in sight.

First and last welds of the day. (sorry, could not figure out how to imbed these images in here)

Well last week, Canada's tire store had a smokin' deal on a rebadged Miller MIG/Flux Core welder. It was $400 off bringing the price down to an almost disposable level of $235. Since I had this amount and more saved up in that store's money, I got the welder and a helmet for nothing!

Wow, I can't believe I waited 61 years to try this out...so much fun!

Unfortunately and sadly, every day in this world can be remembered for something grim. 911 was sensationally grim but between school shootings, residential school atrocities, 3rd world horrors not even considered to be news worthy, despicable war crimes, and so much more, I regrettably cannot, personally, single out any horror to not forget. But that's just me. :(:(:(

How about a proper solar setup? A couple of 6V car batteries, a solar panel or two, a solar controller, and a small inverter

Or even easier, if your wiper supports it, slide out the old rubber blade and slide in a new one. Cheap AND easy.

After the winter I always give the engine compartment a good soaking with my pressure washer to avoid this kind of thing. I seem to remember reading somewhere that road salt can cause them to eat parts of you vehicle....

Bahahah...I had forgotten my Celica at first. Updated the car but not the number.

A buddy had the Firebird and Ms Charlac V3 had a Pontiac GrandAm
