Hey Troy! I hope you got some sleep last night. I'm sure towing to end and start the year was fun and all though! lol

I was thinking about a good title, and we were talking about camping so it fit! lol

Good morning and happy new year.

I sure hope the economy continues a turn around. It will make work a lot better and get a lot more people back to work.

Thanks for starting the new thread Dave. It is a great title

Good morning Dave, Jay and Scott!!

Yeah Dave I did get some sleep. After I posted that last night at 2 I went home and went to bed. I didn't get a call then till 6:30 this morning. I am caught up and back at home now and plan on keeping it that way. It is blowing real good out there and cant hardly see down the street.

Yeah Jay I hope the economy turns around as well and maybe the price of fuel could go down a little also!

All the dinks in the media are predicting $4-5 a gallon gasoline over the next couple years. I suspect that they all play in the stock market as speculators. They are the ONLY reason fuel gets so high.

Glad you were able to get some sleep finally. We got a coating of ice and snow here but nothing bad.

Got a long way on the sled suspension last night. Today I have to shorten a couple shafts then I should be ready to put it in. I do still have to buy 4 idler/bogey wheels but I can put those in with the suspension installed

Yeah Jay it really sucks about the prices of fuel! Sounds like you are making good headway on your sled! So how is your furnace in the garage working is it still flaming up funny?

I think it still is Troy but I will check the next time it kicks in. The weird thing is it only does it as it warms up the burner. Once it fully fires it does not do it.

Found out a bit ago that I don't have to shorten any of the mounting shafts so I am about ready to drill a few more holes and slide this puppy in.

And the furnace just fired. The flames rolled for a bit but it fires pretty quick so I don't think I need to worry much. Might just be the way this unit runs

Edit: It is a Modine

Oh ya, you betcha! We are a little full. I think the tally from last night was around 26 intakes, give or take a few.

We still have a lot of left-overs from last night. It reaks of stale beer and stinky feet in booking. Well the day is almost over, then its nap time!

Sounds like you were busy last night! The sound of that just has a smell that doesn't sound good!
