    Um... not really any pictures of it for now. Will be soon.

    It is at a buddies house right now. He has a heated garage that makes working on it till midnight bareable.

    I hope to bring it home this weekend, but we will see how ast stuff comes along.

    Trust me... there is nothign I want more. I was supposed to have it out testing this weekend and then go to Kentucky over Thansksgiving. But unfortunately it just isnt going to happen.

    So, that leaves mounds runs for testing until spring time.
    Unless I can find a bog or two still happening.

    I will keep up to date as what the status is.

    Was there a date picked for the Mounds yet?

    2 yrs ago I started and worked real hard on it for about 5 weeks.

    Then I moved, and the Blazer got put on hold for many reasons.

    Now I have been back on it bustin ass for about 3 weeks each night after work.
