Thanks Possum!

It should be good. I love the power of the diesel. I like the quiet up front. Ride is great. Having the exhaust brake, I rarely have to touch the brakes on a down grade. That's a big plus. I now know why others have said once you've had a DP, it's tough to go back.

I just picked up my new flat screen TVs to change out the old boat anchor tube ones. I buy last years models on sale. Better deal. Just waiting for my locking swing arm mounts to arrive next week.

Well you done made the move. The unit has more awnings than West Coast Amusements and so much pizzazz. Oh well off to Craiglist or Kijiji to see whats out there can't get too far behind the dogpatch!

Am I, yes.

I could afford a diesel, but for just me, Sadie and the rail, I can't justify it. It may sound silly, but I just need more power for that one big hill going into Yuma. Plus, I park my 32'er right next to my garage. I'd like to move to a place with a little extra (very little extra) land and a small barn to park it in. Wouldn't have to be heated, but I could put a cooler on it for summer work. The only problem is; I'm a hoarder and good at it and have stuff all over the place in my current house. Sounds like too much work to move. Sure, I could have someone move me, but who's gonna unpack and put things where they belong or where I want them?

Next winter all us thread killers will come to your place and Garage sale all your Hoardings, and then it will be an easy move.

It's too damned hot there in the summer to work.

What say you Thread Killers!!

We're in as we were planning to go to Casa Grande anyway. Dunner's place is on the way so why not.

There's already a "ruins" at Casa Grande, AZ.

I'll be at the dunes almost every other weekend during the winter.

Bulk sale means we take bids and one buyer takes all.
