Default First person to use a walker in the junkyard

Driving down with my afo brace in combination with a spring loaded carbon fiber splint....keeps my foot in constant contact with the gas pedal. I have about 1" I can push my foot down, enough to drive sorta normally. The afo brace keeps the foot off the peddle when I'm not pushing down with my calf/ancle muscle, it does not get stuck.









Thats how I drive....









Driving thru the middle of nowhere, 80 miles with no gas stations, and only a half dozen exits.





some random building.





driving in slc...capitol building in the background.




I think the movie was 40 year old virgin when whats his face met the woman that had the we sell it on ebay store...


There was also another huge ebay building....Hundreds of auditors that get paid to surf ebay work there. It sounds like an ok job, they were talking about it on the news.



.





Wheat. I dont know about those rims.....







The junkyard run.




Tail light that was just 20 bucks. Most junkyards sell these for like 50+ a piece.








the friggin gigantic junk yard.


yes....I was sweatin like crazy with just a 10mm wrench and a screwdriver...carrying the stuff back sucked in the snow...on the gravel with a walker.....



Aint nobody stopping me from fixing my center console...thats what the big piece is.

I think I know THAT middle-of-nowhere. It looks oddly familiar

I assume you needed to go down for a medical visit......and combined a JY run into the trip?

Nice tail light find.

That could be anywhere north of Tremonton and south of Boise!

Wish my '93 had only 124k on it.

You guys are all welcome. Boosty never used a backpack til he met me and saw how much I could pack into it. Should have seen him the first time we went to the yard, lugging that big tool box around.... but I digress.

You need to get yourself a junkyard rascal scooter. that'd be awesome. With some aggressive tires and a basket.

if not, go for the backpack. very useful.
