Yeah bumpers aren't rated very high and the truck I'm pulling it down with will get the job done. It's my step dad's F-250, I think it's like a 94, but I'm not sure. Saturday afernoon or evening would be perfect for me, hmm, you think you could help me get the love seat up to my Apt.:D it's really lite. You can call me at my house at 303-948-5651, after 5 or at work 303-446-8400xt1291.

Hmmm.... Help you move a love seat...

Gee lemme see... You're willing to bring down a truck and trailer from Greeley to help me move a car from one end of the world to the other... Yeah I think I can help you move a love seat up to your apt...

Hey guys I have a question that I didn't really think about before... Apparently I'm trailering the car over there because it dosen't run... My question is this... How do we get that huge beast up on the trailer??? Anyone have a come-a-long or something we could use, or maybe even a winch (hint hint Matt)???

Anyway Troy when do you want to move the short couch up to your place???

I guess this means I'll have to put air in the front tires of the galaxie too huh...

I've got a comealong AND a winch... the comealong would kind of be a pain... if you want me to bring my Explorer to use the winch I'll have to fix a few things on it first to make it driveable. LOL. let me know.

Even if you can just bring your come-a-long that would be great... At least we could get it up there... If you can show up maybe we can just push it up on the trailer... That would be three of us...

yeah, I think pushing it up there wouldn't be too terribly difficult... depends on the degree of the ramp I suppose :). I'll see if I can find my come-along... we'll see if we can get it going :).

I think the trailer has that kind of stuff on it, and if not I know it's available for it because we use it all the time for our vehicles, but it never hurts to be prepared. The love seat will just be in the back of the truck, so maybe right before we get your car? It should only take about 5-10 minutes.

Heath, it depends on if I pick up the hardwood floors tomorrow or Sunday... and how big of packages they ship them in (I'm gonna have to carry em from the truck upstairs by myself, so it'll take a while longer if they put em in big-a$$ packages :). How early are you wanting to do it? I can't seem to find my come-along... but the three of us oughtta be able to get it... if not my truck has a push bar on the front with rubber pads in front of it... we can push it up on the trailer with the truck! :).

I'm gonna be a bit hungover if it's too early;) I'm going to the Rio with some friends up in Greeley tonight. I mean I can get up and roll on down here in the wee hours of the morn. I can call your cell phone Heath when I get to my place so we can get that "short couch" up to my apt. Then we can move the whole galaxy:D

if you do decide you need some help let me know... I should be around all day... my truck may be in the garage getting worked on, but the Explorer is driveable again.

Hey Heath,
How did it go moving the car???
We got as close as 120th today, but it was around 4:00 P.M. so I was hoping you had it done already since it was snowing by then.
The ride home was fun, 25 and 35mph on the Interstate.
Had to get the Explorer out on a little road trip.

well it was kind of all of a sudden :). I've got plenty of wings left over though if you want some... Heath and I were gonna split a 50-piece, then he ate like 10 pieces and stopped! LOL. Don't worry if I know in advance I'm going to hooters, I'll always let you know :). Our waitress was kind of cute but really short (but not short enough... LOL), thats ok though...
I still say Troy is making up this great girlfriend of his... LOL

O.K. as long as you invite us next time.
Ya, if you have one of those pretend girlfriends, they can be REALLYgood looking.
As for the waitress being short, sometimes short isn't all that bad even if you are 6'8" lol
As for the extra wings, you can go ahead and keep them, I'll just wait until next time.

LOL No I'm just giving you a hard time... I hope Heath got moved ok yesterday, I was gonna help him move the rest of his crap but I seriously had to get some studying done (and I'm not just making that up as an excuse either, I actually had to get some studying done!).
