Well guys and gal's. I have to let ya's all know that I've sold my truck. :(

I'll be delivering it to my little brother in Calgary the Monday or Tuesday after Fathers Day weekend, depending on when I leave here.
The wife and I have had some problems here and some unfortunate issues have happened at home here in the past few months that pretty much says I have to look forward to buying a brand new 2010 model when there ready. I've already got her approval for what she refers to as a brand new "quiet one" :lol3:
Things here at home seem to slowly be working themselves out for those of you with whom I've shared some already. Life is getting better for everyone involved and thats a GOOD THING :thumbsup

I'll still be driving an oil burner as I've still got the Jeep Liberty CRD here and its a lease, I've been driving the Jeep as much as I possibly can with fuel prices the way they are but I cant turn it in till next August! I just cant afford to pay almost $1500 a month for 2 vehicles and insurance the way things are right now I'm definitely going to miss all that racket I've grown to love as it was my Dad's truck and holds alot of sentimental value to me BUT the fact is my brother NEEDS a truck to haul his new 28' travel trailer in as he calls them "hills out west" and his 01 Ram with the 318 is giving up fast he says. I'd much rather keep it in the family then let somebody just beat on it or me not know where it's going or how it's going to be treated.

Billy knows the truck and how its been maintained and he will hopefully join Cummins Forum and be a part of our family as well.

I'll be posting up my trip plans as I know for sure what I plan on doing and the route I'll be taking, Maybe a couple quick stops to say "HI" to a couple guys along the way might be in order but we will see, its a long haul to make in 2 - 2 1/2 days!!

Maybe a get together in Alberta, say HI and welcome Billy to the Cummins Forum family would be in order, I know he and the wife have plans to attend a rodeo the weekend of the 20 - 22nd and I may stay for a few extra days, get a taste of the west as he calls it then fly home on Tuesday the 24th.

When I'll know more about what direction I'll be heading out I'll post back up.

Thanks guy's, Were well on our way to working out what it is that needs working on and thats a good place to be right now. :thumbsup
Its like building a truck ya know...it takes time and some effort and most likely is gonna cost ya a few bucks along the way but in the long run its worth it to have it the way you want it. :woot:
Gotta put fuel to it first then add the injectors and a bigger spinny thing or even 2. One step at a time, I was not looking forward to having to get myself a new truck BUT come to think of it a 2009 or 2010 might not be a bad idea. I do like the looks of em and I got the wifes OK as long as it's a quiet one she said!! :w:
I'm about 5 or 6 years away from being able to retire (and only if the wife says I can) :lol3:.... and we have had a long term goal of traveling so we might have to look at some sort of trailer or 5th to go along with it?
