Works been crazy, plus trying to get everything set up to go back to school in the spring for Electrical Engineering.

I haven't even taken her offroading since June. Hmph. I might enter COTM, gonna check out last months to see who I may end up competing against first.

I too was wondering where you were. Glad to see ya back. Nice list. Mine will soon be like that once I start making money again and buy accessories for my jeep. And I feel your pain of being busy! Taking 18 hours this semester at OU for Aerospace Engineering and it's resulting in no jeep time other than fixing it so I can drive it.
