Adventure #1



 When we head out to see all 50, we're going to need room for two cats and a George. We couldn't work out the logistics with the A.F.Y. van so we became receptive to new opportunities instead of being stuck on stupid. Fuel mileage is only slightly worse and accessibility to remote areas will be a challenge but in the words of Louis L'Amour "Adventure's just a romantic word for trouble." As you know if you follow any of my posts, I like to barter. This deal cost me our 03 Dodge Ram, our Midsota equip trailer and our 753 Bobcat. His price was reduced from 35K to 25K and I had 18K into the package. With a 7K split we were winners and headed home from Reardan smiling like a couple idiots. Five miles into our victory journey, I spotted flapping rubber out the rear wheel well. Sweaty palms and cuss words later, the outside dual gave up and we were locked in at 45 mph the rest of the way home. Upon further inspection we decided to replace all four drive tires as they are recaps and I hate caps ($2000). We drank two bottles of wine and a bunch of rum in our underwear that night in that hot sumbich cause we didn't have the threedapter that plugs it into the house.
