I got my new to me 01 7.3 F250 4wd long bed a few months ago. I am in East Bend NC which is 16 miles west of Winston Salem. I look forward to talking and learning from this group. I have had Fords since 1968 but this is my first PU, My other ride is a hot air balloon.

Thanks for the welcome. I really enjoyed the old stuff these new machines are rtoo complex.
Yea I am one of those tree scrapers. Most of my uh oh moments came years ago now I am a fair weather flyer I try to avoid any excitement.
Welcome aboard Captjack. Glad to see another member. Especially one with a hobby that has fascinated people for so many years. I am one of the idiots who just stand and stare at the hot air balloons when they fly overhead. I always think of how peaceful and tranquill it must be. But back to my world. Good to see you here and don't be a stranger.
Thanks I am happy to be here I hope I can add some value to the group.
The balloon thing is a little more than a hobby. It is one of the things I do to hopefully keep ahead of the tax collector. That's one of the reasons I got my rig.at least that's I told my wife.
