I watched the river crossing video...whew, you're a brave man. Glad you made it home in one piece. A lot of campfire stories from this trip, no doubt.

Technically it belongs to the videographer so you can't just post it online without his permission.
Technically it's the Internet...
(Hand) Dismounted the 33x10.50 KM2s from the black wheels I bought then dismounted the Duratracs from the stock wheels.... then mounted the Duratracs to the black wheels and three of the KM2s to some other steel wheels I had laying around.
Productive and back breaking. You would never have guessed I had been to the chiropractor twice last week to sort out some back issues....... I wonder why?
The wheels look good. That is a huge amount of work. I have mounted tires manually with irons in the past. I'm too old for that now.

Just for kicks and giggles I taught myself how to break the bead (with multiple methods), reset the bead, and change tires with just 2 tire irons . Thankfully, the tire changing machine provides an extra amount of leverage to make the job easier. But tossing the tires around is tiring. Especially doing it in such a way to avoid further back injury. But, as they say, the show must go on.
