Bernd was busy again using his CJ-5 to haul a repaired motor in Austria, then later carried garden material to the dump, while Dan used his jeep to tow his boat to Puget Sound for a ride around the south Sound area.

    My tractor wouldn’t start the other day and rather than spend the day working on it I hooked up a drag to the CJ3A to knock some weeds down. Wow, gave me a whole new appreciation for my tractor! It had the power and the gears to do the job but was struggling to find traction.

    That an awesome backdrop.

    Crabs this summer have been plentiful and so have the 3 dollar pound shrimp.

    i used to use my cj-6 for work — I had to get to high mountain peaks , behind locked gates — we had telecommunication relay sites — I had to fix or service emergency standby generators — climb towers to fix wind , storm damage — mountain lions — mud — great fun and got paid for it

    The boat was made on Vashon Island by Larson Marine in 1956 according to Dan. This is the first time it had been in Salt Water in probably 50 years.
