well I guess I won't make it afterall. I have to get the jeep smogged so it will sell and that is gonna take most of my money. :(

My tags we're up in Feb. I still havn't had time to smog it...:rolleyes: At least the tags are paid for though:D

I still have two things to do before I think I'll make shows hill easy..

LS up front (its sitting in the shed).. and the SOA in the rear... The broken spring and broken RA bracket repairs put a hold on those additions..

...you are open up front??? ...well, each time i've gone out there show's hill has gotten smoother...when you went thru it, it was recently roughed up by the rain, un-earthing the boulders...;)

...dang-it, now i really want to go...:(

Yup.. open up front.. thats why i can make the turns in the ditches.. unlike some people *Big Grin*

That hill is cursed though.. it took out a radiator hose, a rs9000 shock adjuster, bent the RA brackets some, added some dents... But it was still worth a shot.. and was fun..

They gave Char some good pain killers. She'll be home enjoying herself while we're out playing;)
I guess I should read all the posts before making any replies.....Good to hear she is okay, wish she was coming out though. No Char, No Kevin, No Danny............why even have a campfire???:p:

Hmmm, I did get the Loaned Ranger running again and have no major plans this weekend. I'm just being a cheap ass. I already gave Uncle Sam $9,000 this week.

You know you wanna come danny!!:D:p:


Well I made it to work, with the truck and trailer. I think I have a short somewhere though. Already lost 2 fuses this morning on the truck, one for the trailer brakes, and then on the way here the trailer running lights:rolleyes: Also I noticed this trailer is alot hevier then that u-haul I had last time:( I may stop at the truck stop and weight this hole thing. Need to move the explorer forward on the trailer too, it's not sitting exsactly on the support rails, so it's starting to sink through the mesh floor:eek:

Life is good... I'm online through high speed Internet at Truck Haven:D:thumbsup:

So far it's just Paul and I. We're both taking advantage of the solitude and just chillin' this afternoon.

But all that gas and rum gets expensive!!! Plus I'm living in a tent, not a fancy motorcoach with internet service.

One a side note, my Superduty started choking out and dying on the way home from work. Not sure if it's fuel filter or fuel pump, but either way I'm thankful I'm not sitting between here and Truckhaven having these issues.

I've been to Truckhaven 5 times and never seen a rollover. All the rollovers happen when I'm not there so be careful.
