I drive The Blue Beast, a 2001, 7.3 powered srw long bed crew cab with an overbuilt flatbed on it. Bought her abused but in good body shape. I've been fixin' her for about 2.5 years now. Fuel mileage is about 20 if I keep it above 85mph. Better if slower, but where is the fun in that?
I got The Blue Beast for RV delivery to dealers before I obtained my current position. I'm a Wind Technician, or "Turbine Cowboy" as Discovery networks puts it, though the show probably won't represent real life work. We'll see about that.
No offense, but online I prefer to keep my name as srteach. Maybe preferences will change later, but for now, that's me.
I just realized how much of an *** I look like with that comment... My name is Darrell. Mea culpa, guys.
