Hi Rail,
The truck has been running good, thanks (knock on wood). It has been chilly for a couple days, but now supposed to be in the upper 70's to low 80's for the next week. So I would say the weather is Great!
Frank

Tom, glad you got a break in the weather, and got a lot done! It will not last long, be my guess? I hauled to the casino's in the north part and U.P. of Michigan, and know how quickly the weather can change in the winter up there!!
By the way, the coffee was tasting very good this morning! Even with drinking the de-caf that I have to drink because of the treatments I am going thru! Will be glad to get to drink real coffee again! Rail!
P.S. Still no Bap?

I'm certainly glad to hear good news all around, doesn't seem to be enough of that sometimes, most of us have something to be thankful for, me, I'm glad every morning when my feet hit the floor. Gordon you got your money out of those tires, must be the cold weather too frozen to wear out .

Wow, Gordon, you sure got your money out of those tires! You know you can't add all the miles the truck rides in your trailer?! Glad everyone is safe and warm!

Good Morning. Well almost good evening for someone who was up almost before the sun went down!!

Yes I those tires do not owe me any money. (No - this is not the truck that rides in the trailer - these are the original tires on a 99 F150). They still had lots of tread and only slight cracking on the sidewalls. Inside did not show any issues. Just thought it was time to change. Was waffling on keeping the truck. It has become our going to the dump truck and my occasional going to get hardware so I figured the old tires may not last much longer and I do not want to deal with potential issues. (I keep looking out to see if the new tires are all still inflated - talk about paranoia = LOL). So far may observation is the old tires seemed to have better traction.

Gordon, the reason the old tires had more traction is they were experienced

LOL - I was thinking it could be the preservative on the tires - same as bikes. After 100 miles will be better.
