I got a concrete floor that the top layer on concrete, maybe 1/4" thick,
has flaked off over the last few years. The largest spot is maybe the size
of a basketball and the underlaying concrete seems to be very solid. I see
that Quickcrete has a cleaner to remove the accumulated grease/oil, a
bonding agent to make it stick better and a vinyl concrete overlayment mix
that you just add water and trowel it on.. Am I on the right track???
How many spots or area's are lifting?
Just a few small ones your all set with the plan you outlined.
You will get a laugh out of this. A friend and I went for a 20mile ride with
the atv's. Real nice 50 degree day, not much wind at all, the sun was out,
I'm sure ya get the picture. Anyway on the way back running about 25mph
along this trail it takes a hard left and turns up hill. My buddy is ahead
of me and I see his rooster tail as he makes the turn and hit's the gas, I
get there start the turn and nail it and the left front hooks a log and up
and over we go. I jump but the friggin atv rolls and follows me and it rolls
quicker than I can. Actually it stops rolling when it lands on my right leg,
all 600 ponds of it. Now I've got this damn thing pinning me, I'm trying to
kick it off me with my other leg and shut it off at the same time(damn thing
was still running). Finally shut it down and got it off me but man does the
ankle hurt. Call my buddy who hasn't a clue where the hell I am, he figured
I went straight as I was so far off the trail into the bush's he couldnt see
me or my machine(not to be confused with "the machine" that mac has). Gotta
love those cell phones. We flipped it back onto it's wheels, no damage to
the quad. In fact it fired right up. Made it home without further bs other
than getting hung up crossing a stream but I winched my friend out. Now my
ankle is out like a tennis ball, hurts to walk but Sue made plans for us to
go out to some party tonight, maybe with a few drinks I'll feel better.<G>
Who the hell am I kidding, in the morning I know all the bumps and bruises
will be screaming.
Just a example why ya never ride these things alone and the need for a cell
phone on vibrate 'cause ya can't hear them over the engine.
Probably 10-12 in all. It's the area that's under the engine/trans area of
the work stall that takes a beating. The wheels of the tranny jack catch in
them and makes it a bitch to roll.
Damn, you left so many openings that I just can't count them all. But in
light of your probably broken ankle that you'll have checked out tomorrow
when you can't even hobble out to the couch, I'll be a gentleman..........
<BFG> I know you are careful when riding but remember not to do stupid
things on them. Thursday night, a 27 year old guy from around here got
killed riding an atv down a railroad track after dark with no lights on. He
hit another atv coming at him with no lights on either. Shit happens but
being stupid is well...stupid.
well up here in canada ehhh it's really safe -- your atv would go nohere --
we just got close to another foot of snow yesterday -- you wouldn't even
need a helmet (LOL)
actually when i first skimmed through it, i only felt sympathy for you -- no
chance of running into anyone in the bush up here AND it's so quiet youwould
here them -- but i just looked at roy's reply, forgot you were on atv's and
was thinking to myself; full faced helmet, full skidoo suit or you'd freeze
to death going at speeds over 70mph
actually if you want to pick a fight with your atv go ahead -- this time you
came out quite well -- hope the golf ball if going down
Well bro.. I haven't reached you age. Actually feel pretty good, managed to
get my boots on and the plow on the truck, so I guess I'll go into work this
afternoon and see how things go. If the swelling get's unbearable I'll stay
home for a day or two and stay off my feet.
Yup, you know the place where ya go and hang out for 8+ hours a day and they
give ya money(never enough) to pay bills and buy toy's
For 36 years, only 16 months to go, I hope.
It didn't work out that way last night. Everything that could go wrong, did.
Anyway I was on my feet all night and found by the end of the night I
couldn't get up into a locomotive without a bunch of pain. It was real puffy
this morning, it may be more screwed up than I first thought. So this
afternoon I'm going to get it X rayed and see what the doc has to say, Sue
has been after me since it happened to get some pic's taken so she will be
good idea Sue ;-) -- i figured a somewhat black ankle could be normal for a
tear so took me three days until my leg started going cold and i went for
pics and found out i fractured my leg below the knee and broke it clean off
at the ankle -- actually breaks can take less time to heal than tears so try
not worry. if you need a cast, try to get an air cast -- they are much
lighter, don't cost much, and you can open them up a bit to let the
leg/ankle breathe and gently rub at the scum with a cloth or even get in the
bath, take the cast off and soak it if you are allowed
best of luck, it's not fun either way
Had the x-rays done, nothing broken, but a hell of a lot of bruising. They
were curious as to the metal that showed up in the pics. Some things just
never go away, eh bro..
Now I have a elastic brace deal and instructions to stay home and keep my
foot up for the rest of the week. Hmmmmm.. wonder if I can sneak to the
range and go through a few hundred rounds.<VBG>
Just goes to show you shoulda landed on something soft . . . . and Denny's
never around when you need him . . .
Wait-a-minit . . . .when the pink fuzzy bunny is around you never see Denny
. . . .
Hey bro!!!! Just went through your home page and ya left out a couple of
pictures. A picture of those things ya use to make that I can never think of
the name of. The things for chucking, tribect or something. And a picture of
the gray haired, pony tailed old man. <BFG>
