Morning All! Well today the old Dakota gets it's new Coat, hopefully it all fits well, LOL! I'm sure it will, although we went out for a birthday party for my buddys wife till midnight last night at a Portugese restaurant. Still stuffed, they just keep walking around with skewers of every type of meat you can imagine. Waiting for him to pick me up now to go do the final taping /plastic and shoot the truck, wish me luck, pics tonight!Bobby

Coffee is real good this morning...

Hello All,
Another chilly morning here in Sedona. Got back into the shop yesterday morning to 31 phone messages and 277 emails. Glad to get through them and all in all a decent 1st day back after being closed for more than a week. Suppose to have reopened on Tuesday morning and I heard quite a few "we called yesterday" and "we stopped by yesterday...." It will be several weeks before I hear the end of that.
Tim,,,, the bridge you mentioned.... was that right around Midland/Odessa? We were poking along for at least an hour maybe more.. seemed like a week. We had pulled off for a bite to eat and were seriously considering heading north up through Roswell and then to I40 just east of Albuquerque but Tricia put her foot down and said let's stay the course. So back on to I20 and then the we hit that "parking lot". She felt pretty crummy for insisting we stay on 20. but who knows... we could've gotten abducted by aliens and that would've been worse... maybe.
Just an FYI... someone mentioned nice rest stops in New Mexico just past Anthony Texas.... that guy was closed as well as the next one around Benson.

And Ron, that table looks great and I'm sure tears were involved when it was "unwrapped". Oddly enough it doesn't look anything like a horseshoe.

Happy New Year everyone and here's to good fortune and good health to all.
Steve

Gooodmorning all yíall,

I had a particularly good day yesterday. After a multi-year hiatus I finally went out hunting again yesterday. Today Iíll be feasting on fresh quail! YUMM!

I finally screwed up my courage this morning and got on the scales to determine my holiday gluttony damagesÖ I gained 10 lbs!!! When I was younger I could diet and lose over a pound a day, now Iím lucky if I lose a pound a week .

Tim, was that bridge repair just west on Benson on I-10? If so be aware that there was no easy way around it without going about 40 miles out of your way.

I have a busy day planned. My daughter gave me a hibachi grill for Christmas so I need to season it with a good hot charcoal fire to burn off any paint or oil left over from its manufacture. After seasoning with charcoal Iíll probably be doing most of my cooking on it using mesquite or oak wood. I love flame cooked steak and hamburger! While the grillís seasoning Iíll climb up on the roof and find a small but annoying leak. Not huge problem here in AZ but it needs to be done. Itís also time for a good interior cleaning and tossing out things Iíve accumulated but havenít been using this past year. Time to rein in my inner-hoarder.

I hope all yíall have a wonderful day!

Steve

Hi all!
John and I are on our way, as I write this we are climbing the long grade to fancy gap Virginia.

We are headed to New York (about 30 miles north of the city) to get his Harley trike and 4 cases of chocolate chip cookies. Yes, you read that correctly. Linden chocolate chip cookies.

I waited till we were on the road 2 hours till I shared the cookies are available on Amazon

Happy New year all!

L.

Thanx all of you for your well wishes on my endeavors to bring our Dakota back to a decent appearance! Well the paint and clear went on great, but do to my friends insistance on relying on a cheapskates advice , he used diesel fuel in the new bullet heater I bought for his shop He didnt believe me when I told him it would affect his paintwork! Well he knows nowHe switched back to kerosene last week but it probably screwed the nozzle up as everytime we turned it on it belched smoke and the right side of the bed will have to get redone and a little of the left side of the bed, everything else is a polish job, so i'm happy! Those bullet heaters are no good for a closed shop , lots of fisheyes to sand and polish , oh well, at least I can start putting it back together next week! here are some of the pics from today,Bobby

Gooodmorning!

Happy New Year all yíall!

Iím glad 2015 is behind me, it wasnít a bad year but it was quite challenging. Fortunately, none of the challenges were insurmountable, nor did any floods carry me away though they came close several times. Now Iím entering 2016 with a newly rebuilt engine in my home-on-wheels, as well as numerous other needed repairs and upgrades. In fact Iím in a great position to enjoy 2016, YEEEHAAA!!!

Steve

Happy New Years Everybody! Lets all pray it is a Healthy and Safe one! Going over to the shop to see what is in store for me as far as sanding. We need to get it over here to my garage to put it back together as he needs the room for other work. But first he has to paint the silver on the bottom up to the first bodyline. Will take more pics later. Stay Well, Bobby
