Howdy folks. Figured since the days are gettin longer and warmer, it must mean the old man winter is on his way out the door. Time for summer to roll around here real quick!
So since Summer is coming up quick, what are everyones plans? Since I'm graduating in June, I plan to make this summer one that I will never forget.
One of my closest friends (Happens to be my Ag Science Teacher's Son) and I and a few other of us guys decided to take a trip to Canada. Zeke (The son) and his family own a cabin up in the Northeastern part of Ontario on a lake. Not sure what lake, but I know it's a 12 hour drive from Central Ohio to there. I almost can't wait for a week of nonstop fishing and boating!
I also plan on taking another trip with another one of my friends to their cabin on a lake down in Gatlinburg Tennessee. Again, to go boating and tubing and what not.
Since I've bragged about my planned summer, whats your plans?
1991 Ranger XLT 2.3 5 speed with over 328,000 miles
1995 F-150 XL 4x4 5.8 351 with a 5 speed ZF Manual. 258,000 miles
lol, hanydman, you know the drinking age is 18 up there right? Or is that part of the plan allready?
Ohh man, lets see. I"m also graduating in june. So I'll be working 40 hours a week at my job, saving as much as i can. Then i'm going to try and get another job at a sams club tire center working probably another 10-15 hours a week. Again, saving. I'll probably spend alot of money on my truck. I have to convert to roller cam/roll er rockers/gt40 heads, get carpet in it, finish all the body work, put herculiner on the flatbed etc.....I'll do that until august, when i move in to my first apartment on the 1st. Pretty excited about that. Then i'll stop working the 40/hr week job and get as many hours at sams club since its in the same town. Then around the end of august the fun stops and its going to college and paying bills and living with my woman.
2004 F150 FX4 Crew Cab
85 4x4 5.0L F150 Reg Cab-What the heck should I do with this thing?
We get out of school May 11th and then I'll work full time until mid June. Then Im taking off to visit with family and friends, then on July 5th Im shipping out for OSUT and Airborne School at Fort Benning, GA.
LGOP: a small group of "pissed-off American paratroopers" who are well trained, armed to the teeth, and lack serious supervision. They collectively remember the commander's intent as, "March to the sound of guns, and kill anyone who isn't dressed like you ..."
As soon as school gets out (mid-May), do a whole bunch of little things to the truck, hopefully get it to where it runs and drives reasonably well. (Rear shocks, maybe rear brakes, replace the burned out light bulbs in the dash, fix the little spots of surface rust, try to figure out why it doesn't idle well) Then, I'll most likely spend a significant portion of the time that's left working on a friend's farm in Colorado. I'd really like to drive the Ranger out there, but with 222k, I'm going to need to really check it over good before such a trip...
Taking classes full-time, while working 2 part time jobs. One on the day when I don't have a night class, and the other on the days I do, because I can start a later shift there. Was offered to come back and work a few days where I'm interning now, so I should be able to make some cash to pay for fixing the truck, gas, getting a motorcycle, and saving for an apartment.
Damn, might hafta rethink that, I'm gonna be busier than I thought
Hmm lets see I was planning on going to California to visit family and fish for salmon but stupid tree huggers are shutting down salmon season. Its in appeal right now, petitions are out etc. If i dont go fishing i might as well hit the beaches and surf a little, when i get back ima work on the truck seeing how ill have money from my 18th BIRTHDAY!!!! WOHOO oh n since ill be 18 ima go CLUBBING or skydiving !!!
