Working about 10 hours a day and then trying to get my online classes done at home for a little while each night. Only 1.5 more years of this and I'll have that B.A. degree! The good news for me is that I no longer have to drive to Richmond everyday. My office is now located in Yorktown (about half the drive!)

No money = No work on truck. Should be getting $800 soon from selling my drums. That will go towards some performance mods or 4.56's. Also...see my other thread!

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=456710

I hang out around the house most of the day. Gotta clean my room tomorrow. Been doing a little riding on the fourwheeler every hour or two. Front wheel bearings are shot...there's A LOT of play in them. Better cancel my riding plans for this weekend. Not too bad for 5,000 miles in water and mud up to the handlebars. Yea...I have pictures, but no way to get them on the computer...

Also playing around with my new Dell XPS 600. Need to move the wireless router...I hardly get a signal here in my room. Still at 54 MBps though...

Im going to skool for Mechanical Engineering right now.

So...how are ya'll doin out there in the flat-lands? I used to live out in Chesapeake when I was little. Between the ages of 3-5. We still go out there about once a year to visit some good friends. My cousin and her husband live in Norfolk as well...she has been in the NAVY for 8 years now...

No money = No work on truck

I dunno, but when I read that I just burst out laughing

I hear yah though on the no money thing. . .I'm sure most would agree, even when you get a job, it still tuff to come by Been getting my 4x4 kicks with the gas powered truck I got for Xmas. Pretty slick, I can cover a baseball feild in a few seconds. . .

Mechanical engineering eh? And you want WoW factor when you pop the hood of your truck? How bout this. . .when they pop the hood, all they will see is a big aluminum fuel cell. And in the bed of the truck will be 2 LEER jet engines

To help pay for the mods, you can charge money per ride, and sell clean underwear and pants at the end!

Out in the flatlands its nice. Its been in the upper 50's here for. . .most of winter. . .I'm loving it!

BigBlue, you gonna bring it down next time and rip a few chords for us? Can you do cover songs yet, or are you writing your own stuff?

Yea...that will sure get some looks. But for the price of a jet engine...I'd rather have the entire plane Besides....it would be rather hard to light up the tires and forget about driving it on the street! LOL (Roast cop anyone?)

figured I'd pop in and let everyone know I'm alive still. recently I've been enjoying my offseason from work, sleeping in every day, cleaning out the garage, cleaning the house real good, yda, yda, yda,, just basically enjoying life. About mid -march the landscape grind starts up

We know your alive, we just haven't seen you since the sticker meet

Good to hear your enjoying yourself! Making me wish I had some vacation time to turn in

The cleaning chore has kind of evolved into a goal. . .I'm finding I have room to set my Saltwater Tank back up and a fat refund check from Uncle Sam to help pay for it
