WOW! Can't believe I've missed this and its been since 2015 I guess I'm an old timer in more ways than one, I remember when the site went through changes & I lost my screen name, but I know I've been here since 2005 when I built my first Ranger which was my Son's 93. Still have my green 94, but its been sittin since 2012 when my Dad died and I got my 72 Chevelle SS back that I sold him in 97.

My latest truck is my 98 Steppie DD, here's the link > 98 Thunderbolt Build

I was diagnosed with a stroke the end of July, no aneurisms, blockage, or tumors "THANK YOU GOD!!!". So seein a Neurologist to see what goin causin the pain & discomfort on left side of my face & head. Haven't worked since the stroke & the medication I'm on is makin the discomfort tolerable.

I'm not on daily like I used to be, but do check in every couple days or so.

TAKE CARE GUYS & GALS and GOD BLESS YOU & YOURS!!!

Hello old friends! Still alive after all these years? Haven't visited in a while. Just wanted to slide in sideways and give a holler! Lets see, update if anyone cares. Working my ass off. Off road Ranger rotting in my driveway. Still awaiting an axle transplant. Has 2008 plates on it... Gold 2001 Ranger totaled. Now have a 2005 as a daily driver. Flying a lot. Big fun being had. This is how I'm spending most of my time/money now:






This is my new offroad vehicle. I laugh at people who say boats are money holes...

Cool

Finished my internship in April and got my full PA Funeral Director license. Didn't have a job to go do so I had some needed surgery on both thumbs for arthritis, right in late April and left in June so I couldn't work for a while. Feeling okay now, did PT and got my grip mostly back but now I can't find a job in my area. Did just get approved to take the Florida funeral exam which was my goal anyway. More jobs there since it's a growing state and PA is shrinking. Dude at the local and only taxi company says if I want to work a lot I can make $1000 a week driving a cab so I may call them. Just got back from spending two weeks in the Keys volunteering at a church doing hurricane relief work. Major areas totally destroyed. Only reasonably priced hotel was on the mainland and 90 miles from where I was working. Put 5000 miles on my Sport Trac in three weeks and it's time to change the oil again already.

My daughter had a baby in July so I'm a grandfather now.

Wow...congrats!

Sounds like what I went through with my IT training...by the time I graduated all the jobs were gone and it started to be an issue over what certifications we had before we'd even get an interview.

Florida sounds like a nice option...all the Canadian snow birds in the winter might keep a few places busy...

I’m still around. Don’t get on as much as I like to. And haven’t had time to work on either of my rangers. But did pick up a 96 Explorer sport 5 speed. So I’ve been messing with that lately.
