Had to put the floor jack under the pumkin(the kid not me) and give 'er shove with the JD to get it off to the side. Notice all the boxes I have to go through :hmm: plus this stuff to organize

Well good on you to get her home and inside to at least plan your attack. :clap: I noticed you seem to be a little short on parts looking at the stock pile or is there more? :hmm:

Also glad to see you finally brought her home buddy. I know it's been a very...long haul from the day I saw you dig the footing to this point!
I pray the rats nest i see on the intake didn't spread elsewhere in the truck!
I remember when I first brought BC #16 home and she had rats under the seat nested! :eek:

I dodge a bullet that day and I'm very thankful to be in the condition that I'm in. I landed on my forehead and fractured the 2nd vertebrae in my neck.
So everything is on hold for awhile


How are things? Sorry to hear about your fall- don't know how I missed it on here. Hope you heal up quick, just take it easy. Sounds like you were lucky- guys have gotten hurt a lot worse from a lot less.

:oops!: I meant to reply awhile ago....UPDATE, last visit to the Doc's(12/27)office was good...X-rays look good and they knocked off a cpl weeks. So this damn thing comes off the 30th and into a soft shell and PT :woohoo: This site helps to pass the time although I wish the arses would have left the damn pictures alone. Love watching all the projects going on..... :clap: lot of talented people

Thx Jeff got some even better New yesterday :woohoo: First, I hate to admit to having a few screws loose but, I did and it concerned the Doc. So yesterday I went back for a tighten up(mind you there's only 11 days left for take off)on my crown. Low and Behold the jailer let me loose https://www.dropbox.com/s/0y07vz0abvfoh ... 4.jpg?dl=0
