"then BrowningBAR will be owning beach front property. Cool!"
--That's funny that you mention that. We named the property "Arizona Bay". A poke at when Cali slides into the ocean (Both the band "Tool" and Bill Hicks reference the term Arizona Bay), but it is just as applicable for when the oceans rise up and swallow everything.

That's the great thing about trucks, they never really go out of style and always maintain their usefulness. I plan on doing the same thing. I'll just throw a new engine in it when it's needed in 10 years.

The land is good. The price hasn't shot up all that much, but that doesn't worry me one bit. Mostly that means the idiots with Big Ideas haven't found the place, yet (They found Sedona, though). There is talk of build a town in the area to alleviate traffic/pollution in the Grand Canyon area. Something about shuttling in the visitor via electric powered buses, or something warm and fuzzy like that.

I figured I need about two more years before I can build anything on it. I'm doing some renovations to the Farmhouse over the next two years, so that takes priority.

Right now I have a contractor over here jacking up some of the foundation to level out the flooring in the living room. Man, really old house are freakin' cool! The first floor support beams are these gigantic hand-carved wood beams that are about 10-12 inches wide and about 8 inches deep. It's like the floor is sitting on 10 full grown trees.

Our area is zoned rec only, no utilities and 5 acre minimum. It's also at 8500 ft. The pansies who need cableTV, microwaves, etc gotta come up with their own power. This keeps the lawyer riff raff out.

You can be arrested now for smoking in some cities in Cali. I'm glad I won't live to see the Brave New World of the future with everyone implanted with GPS locator chips and the govt telling you where to live, who to marry, etc. Oh yeah, they'll also be telling you when to die. We were very lucky, you and I, to live in a time when freedom still existed, as brief as that time in human history was. When I see the huge numbers of ignorant fools that infest our society with no understanding of history I know that it's coming to an end within the next 50 years max.

True enough. I think we actually lived during the best time this country will ever see.

I'd love to agree with you guys but my govt' mentor sitting next to me forced me to take another bite of cereal and it's against the law to type while chewing.

I can't complain, coming from some of the worst inner city slums on earth, growing up in 3 different countries and being a 10th grade drop out to a decent house in the 'burbs and a legal 6 figure income is pretty good. I think the smartest thing I did was joining the Navy, I sweated blood for 4 years, ran coal, cleaned boilers and worked 18 years worth of nights and weekends to now where work 8 hour days, have most weekends off and sit back and cruise most of the time. Couple of bikes in the garage, a good running 5 year old Explorer and my dads 18 year old Range Rover in the driveway, two healthy kids and a good relationship with my ex-step kids, a girlf friend who thinks the sun shines out of my backside..... I really don't have anything to cry about.

I did, but it turns out I kinda' like her after all.....

We've split up and got back together a half a dozen times at least....It seems like difficult and impossible relationships are my forte` .

Hey Buz man, I think I may be buying a two-smoke soon. Another Kaw H1 that looks pretty damned good. All original and priced right. I may pull the trigger today. Listen for a big boom!
