She really is putting on weight!

After reading the weights others posted I’m thinking Erika can’t be 100lbs heavier. So, I went to another weigh station. Yep, she sure is. :shock:
My CT is increased about the same, I added it up, all fluids plus full tank, then adding on tub bumper bars, full jerry can, full ammo box, towbar, trunk lid rack (if empty), plus tools and all the other crud I normally carry around, and then with (just) me sitting on it, it can be up to around 950 lbs

Difference is, I’m not on the scale! :shock:
