I always hate giving offers...I always think it will be offensive. I'm not looking to spend too much on one. It looks like it needs a bit of work? What rough area would you be looking, realistically? IF you sell.

Supposed to rain(30-40%) tonight, early tomorrow and clear up tomorrow afternoon. May find yourselves in snow/mud. My bfg AT's won't like either very much.

Speaking of Gamblers... I'm off to the Gamblers MC club race in Primm for the day! Tomorrow will be more jeep wrenching fun! Well, probably a few hours worth tonight also I guess.

Wheeler's Pass was fun. A little windy, but not too bad. The Pahrump side was a little muddy so I have to go pressure wash the heck out of the jeep. THanks for coming along Dwink, hope you had fun!!

After an hour under the jeep, all of the mud is gone. It was more like gravel then anything else. My windshield got peppered with gravel from one of the gusts, guessing it will crack here soon now...

Going to be gone for a few days again, but nothing bad this time. I felt well enough to fly into Texas yesterday to see if we can thin the hog herd a bit. I don't usually get sick when I fly, but this was a small aircraft and the wind was pushing us in all directions.

Below is the runway we flew into. It's a private field way west of Waco. The owner of that land is nice enough to let his neighbors use it occasionally. He doesn't charge people, but he does take donations to store aircraft for short periods. My friends donation to him is to let him hunt on his property. It's a fair trade since the hogs constantly tear up his fields.

Sorry about the picture quality. That was taken with my phone since I wasn't thinking ahead and packed my good cameras in my luggage.

I don't think there will be a shortage of hogs to hunt. This was taken during one of the passes flying around their property. We saw no less than 50 in 2 passes. We also saw a few deer, but they don't hunt them because they're pretty. They treat them like pets. There are some deer close to the house that are very tame. We were sitting outside last night and the deer were eating by the feeder right next to the patio.

Ok, men. I just wanted to pop in and post a couple pictures. I'll be back in Vegas in a couple more days. Hopefully, I'll have some great pictures to share. Have a good weekend!

One more thing. In Texas, all they drink is beer and Red Bull. They're a funny people.

Was mostly whoring around last night but between work and the whoring I did manage to break in the trans jack. Got it dropped and slid out from under the jeep.

Glad I didn't race today. Conditions were actually decent cause the wind doesn't bother me much but I hear the course markers were mostly knocked down and it was just a total cluster of racers loosing the course all day!

Got home this evening... Pulled the torque converter and the flexplate. Pretty much at this point I've gotta pull the 2 cooler lines going up to the radiator and then it's 100% removed. Will do that in the morning then go pickup a flywheel and the right CPS that I need and hopefully have a trans mounted up by mid day tomorrow! Then deal with the dreaded pedal assembly. If that somehow goes smooth I think the rest of the project will go together pretty quick but Im sure there'll be some hickups on the way. I wouldn't have it any other way! LOL

If anyone's beyond bored I'll be in the garage most of tomorrow. Shouldn't need any help honestly but another person to BS with is always better then the conversation the dog holds down! LOL

Of to clean up and down to town square to continue the whoring conquest... Had fun last night but wouldn't call it successful, tonight is round two! LOL Same group...
