With the Caterpillar reassembled and working properly I finally started on a project I had been putting off for too long... cleaning up my shop. I started yesterday and made a lot of progress, enough so that I could actually walk without tripping, overstepping, or jumping past anything lol. I had actually started to pick up around some of the tractors and managed to gain enough to walk around a few of them. This morning I picked up where I left off and cleaned off the Elec Trak E20 the rest of the way, and with that it was time to sweep under it so... I took it for a spin!! LOL

I drove the E20 all around in between the rain for mabey 15-20 minutes of just messing around before finally putting it away, mudding up the area I had just swept... lol. So this is a huge victory, I haven't been able to get the E20 out since May of last year. I am going to head back out in a few minutes and clean off another tractor. Won't get it out or move it, but it's a small enough goal that I can accomplish it in short order lol.

Who else is doing their Spring Cleaning in the middle of Winter?? lol

I think for most of us that is an ongoing, never ending project, just means we have been busy.

Gee Casey, almost sounds like you need a "map" to navigate your way around your shop! LOL
