Just be careful about low-hanging hair......

Seriously, hair can muck up an engine.....

Just sayin' hair nets are a good idea in working on an engine. Saves the owner of the hair a *pun intended* headache in more ways than one.....

But don't be afraid! Good job!

The long can be a b!tch when it gets tangle in the wheels of your creeper and you're pinned to it, been there.
My wife wouldn't even open the hood let alone crawl under it, lol.
Best of luck.

Back in my long hair days, that's how I knew I really needed a haircut

Good job on the engine, I'm not doubting you did the work, I think the pictures are posed. Clean hands, clean clothes, long hair, clean legs, bare feet,clean face, clean arms, long hair on the floor. I've been working on engines all my life, only time I could stay that clean was on race engines and new rebuilds on an engine stand. Believe me even race cars get really dirty on a 24 hour endurance race.

Ha! Those were taken as soon as we started that day. All we did in that stretch was put in the cylinders and pistons, which we had cleaned meticulously. My dad kept telling me to smile and I am not good at posing when I'm actively trying to do something! I braided my hair so it wouldn't keep going under the creeper. Definitely had that problem, but mine's long enough that when braided I can just throw it over my shoulder and it stays put. Kinda.

All right, folks, I've been workin' my ash off for the past few days trying to get out of here on time. Still have to pack all my junk, finish to goat pen, and strap the generator on the back.

We have a 3-foot long back deck with wired tail lights, specially engineered stow away passenger seat, two back up cameras, two 30 gallon grey hooked up to the sink and tub, and one 30 gallon black water tank, and enough storage space for about twelve large totes plus more room to stack shorter totes on top of those. I've been putting zippers in all the cushion covers and I was getting really good at it until the sewing machine started fighting me. So I have to do the last three by hand. I'll have plenty of time to do that on the 27 hour drive to ND, though!

The fresh water system isn't hooked up yet, neither is the washer/dryer, but we'll get along with makeshift setup until we have time to finish it on the road.

Sorry for the lack of pictures. I'll try to post some before we leave but I honestly shouldn't take the time to do that, and we don't keep mobile internet plus my laptop screen died and it takes too much power to run the tv as the screen for long. Luckily I picked up a small portable typewriter from Salvation Army for five bucks! So I can type blog posts and use OCR at a library to shoot it into a post.

Thank you all for your help so far!!!! Everyone is so lovely. =]
