Well, start off by working on the farm. When I'm not working you can bet I'll be on the 4wheeler, shooting something, chasing girls around, or going to demo derbies/concerts at the county fairs. Also probably gonna be hittin Kearney Cruise Night. (Anyone know when that is by the way?). And hopefully the Fremont swap meet. Maybe do alittle wrenching on blue if I can afford to. I'd like to fix the rear brakes and the steering, so it isn't gonna be real cheap and the motor is gettin alittle tired (7-10 psi of oil pressure at hot idle). So my luck I'd dump all that money into it and a week later the motor would let go. Oh well. How bout ya'll?

You said it man.. I love pulling. I am hoping to get a truck ready and make a couple pulls. Found another truck that may work better but still need to find a box for it. Other then truck pulling I will probably toy with my PSD some more (gotta like going fast and makin' black smoke...), playing a little golf, and playing with the boys.

Plan to spend a week in Colorado Springs visiting my folks in July. I'll probably tow the Harley along since I can't get me and both kids on it.

Usually take in a couple rodeos (Sidney, IA is a fun one). Hope to get out to Cheyenne Frontier Days.

Probably make it out to the wife's family farm outside of Gibbon a couple times. Also plan to make it out to Kearney for cruise night... I think its July 17th.

Almost forgot... the wife is heading to China to see her brother who's living/working over there for 2 years. The kids get to go to the grandparents and I get 2 weeks of bachelor time. Still gotta go to work, but I'll enjoy the quiet evenings for sure!

Will do. I am pretty sure I will be at RedOak, IA on 6/2/06 and Malvern, IA on 07/23/06. If we are running a truck then we will probably be at more. My neighbor that is helping me is from Schribner area so we will try to make that one too and if I remember correctly you are from that way, aren't you. Don't worry, I will let you know when I am running.

Hey, thanks for the info. I'm not as worried about upgrading them as I am getting the back ones to actually work right. All I can say is it's a good thing it's got discs up front!!!!

Yes it is a pretty good time. I used to go when I was little (grew up in the area) and then I went to it last year for the first time in a long time. If any of you get down that way you should try Whip's. It is a bar/grill type of place with the best Prime Rib I think I have ever had. If you are going during Rodeo, you had better go plenty early or get reservations.

If I recall, it's less than an hour... You head down 29 a little ways south of Glenwood, then head east over the hills.
