mobile transporter repaired

If the CAO is like the space station, and our cars and trucks and mini-vans are the rockets and space craft to get humans on orbit and back to Earth, then the Stargrazer lawn tractor is like a shuttle craft.

I guess I switched metaphors there. NASA and RosCosmos et al to fiction, Star Trek...

OK. If I must keep the reality angle, the International Space Station analog, going then perhaps the lawn mower is like the Mobile Transporter on the ISS. Yeah. That's it! Short hauls. Small. Limited capacity, limited range. For maintenance purposes.

That Dietmar retrieved, purchased, and delivered parts for Stargrazer, I was able to affect repairs. The left-front axle is functional. We can steer again. We can cut the lawn again!
