      Why Kentucky? I'm asking myself that more now, lol.
      Job offer. I've been flying helicopters for a school in Oregon for a little over a year. A coal mining company bought a new helicopter and I delivered it out here. Then the owner offered me a job to fly for him full time for salary and benefits, etc. It beats the low hourly pay I was getting (only billable time), and I didn't want to get stuck there in the winter again when the weather turns and there is little flight time to be had (ie no money).
      Kentucky seems nice, but we are bored out of our minds so far... We'll see how I feel in a year. All I know is it's nice to get a decent steady paycheck.

      The school was Hillsboro Aviation, both on the East and West side of Portland. So most likely the same place.
      I don't recognize the name but there were SO many students and instructors cycling through all the time.

      Moving day, for some reason I didn't get a pic of the trailer hooked up but there's a 600#welding maching burried in there somewhere

      And of course I had to load all the "essentials" in the back

      Pretty light weight... But it pulls the Four Wheeler. The F-150 does the heavier pulling..

      Yes, the stuff on the hitch is worth considerably more than the truck:

      And yes my girl and I are probably crazy (well I KNOW she is crazy):

      That's air temp, water was a bit colder. Oh yeah this was yesterday.

      not a very heavy load, or even a great picture, but still a trailer :)

      Towing my Cobra from Charleston to DC for a Terminator Shootout. Over 25hrs roundtrip and it did just fine!

      I'm guessing you have a V8? That Mustang is crazy, my little brother had an 03' Mach 1, he had to sell it because he was getting into way to much trouble.

      I just towed his new Honda Accord on a 16' landscape trailer 300 miles. It did great. I'll post pics later.

      Yeah it has the 4.6 in it, and the Slowbra is a ton of fun! :thumbsup:



      35% on the windshield and 20% on front windows.

      Lock up converter/overdrive

      Well, after seeing all these pics, my 2000 ex with the 5.0 should have no problem towing my 2,650 lb. mustang on an open center 18ft. trailer. The only thing I'm not sure of is if i need to have the lock up converter/overdrive disabled on the highway. I'll post pics soon.

      My little trailer for the 4 wheeler I almost forget its back there till I look in the rear view and see the 4 wheeler staring at me.
      These are crappy phone pics since I can't find my camera.
