    Lightbulb OK OK,Im getting to IT

    Ok,So Finally gave up on the Quadravan since she quit on me.Note to self what do drill rigs really do??Any ways 1 dead cylinder and 14 hours just in interior to remove drill rig framing and rusted out roof!Just replaced Qvan with a 1987 Ford E350 Collins Bantam Bus,6.9 and a c6.Start build in two weeks after securing some parts from Gordon @ Pathfinder.I may be partial to E250s but im more partial to my $$$ and that pig of a 460 was not getting any more.Mapping out interior to include sink/stove , slide out rear kitchen ...etc

    Heh. Yeah, that's Grumpy and I.

    This is such a fun spot in the quarry at Badlands Off Road Park. Really good to bring newbs down. The passenger front drops, lifting the drivers rear. The rear wheel is actually a couple inches off the ground in this pic.

    The Cherokee that is barely visible in the upper left of the pic followed me down this. Family of four, first time off roading, so I spotted them down. Guy's wife in the passenger seat was "Whoa, whoa, whoa whoa!" When the front right dropped. They paused, she said, "I do NOT like this.", while the husband and kids were digging it, then I had them continue pulling forward.

    That is so nice and its a Ford! the blackout grill and bumper is way over the top on a van. O by the way keep the Ford thing Chevy friends would disown me if they knew I really really liked this.....shhhhh.....Even tho my health has improved I continue to age (sigh) and Vans like these start to look like the answer to me......maybe I'll have my XJ Bronzed.
