Default Cabin fever and M715s

I'm sitting here looking out over the snow pack and itching to get to work on a myriad of things with my truck.
Need to replace three MC's, swap out messed up wheel with replacement, fix battery box lid alignment, etc, etc.
(sigh)
spring can't come soon enough...

75 degrees here, with a dead M715 in the yard. That may be worse than all that snow.

We had some decent weather this past weekend, so I had the trucks out to run them for a bit and get all the fluids warmed up. No road driving as the salt around here is crazy. I'll have to wait for a few good spring rains to wash off all the roads before I head out.

I've always wanted to drive mine in the snow. Also too much salt here in CO.
