Rav's going to the retirement village, anxiety is ramping up though, now supposed to be putting the motor in this. Wham bam thankyou mam style, not how I usually work, could be some inner conflict coming.

Built as a winch challenge car, not really suitable for off road rally, chassis etc very heavy for dragging over rock ledges.

Hit three trees, went through a fence, sent a Roo to heaven and ditched into a culvert, bent a few bits, all repairable.

The Rav front bumper is all formed from 3mm steel, fully boxed, diagonal braces to the corners, it takes out small trees and hardly leaves a mark.
He barrel rolled it once, hit a kitchen table size rock with the right front at speed, bent the reinforced Patrol diff, bent the steel wheel, just touched the roof on one edge, landed back on it's wheels knocking three tyres off their beads and drove back to the pits without having come to a stop.

Sad news today of a dear family friend fighting for his life in Hospital after a suicide attempt at 49 y.o.

Former world champ in his sport with everything to live for. A passionate advocate for suicide prevention (like Annalise Braakensiak) but didn't ask for help in his darkest hour. Now all we can do is pray.

Know thine enemy, I spose:
Get close & nearly-intimate.

I'm a first-responder:
No kudos for my/that.

We need to forget status:
My shit stinks, always has.
