    RJ, you're so much cooler since my recent revolation.


    i'm looking to get out of debt within the next year by selling off projects, such as my Grand Ams, and parts that i have for my truck that are not needed and taking up valuable space. i'd also like to find myself a good woman within the next 2-3 years, maybe buy a house. and who can forget, drink some beer and smoke some cigarettes.

    Think you mean revelation, but anyway, what was that revolation of yours? I'm glad you think I'm cool

    Right on! Get her a LOT of books and maybe a 10/22 to start with

    Well I still have My old Marlin .22 that I got when I was a little kid that She will learn with. In the mean time The Wife was just nagging at Me tonight to take Her deer hunting:thumb: So She gets to take the hunter safety class and I get to buy Her a new gun. Oh and she will have books. I'm a history nut and I plan on Her knowing a little of why and how she came to be.

    I had ambitions. Right now I'm in an automotive depression though. How can I get anything in the fleet "done" when before I even get a second vehicle completed to the point of satisfaction, the only one I had finished blows it's newest part, sending me back to square one?

    Ambitions for 2005:
    The following vehicles of mine need motors: Blue '84 K5, '81 Crew Cab- big and little; My GMC, my red '78 K20, the Truck Blazer, the Camo Blazer.

    The following vehicles are receiving axle changes and/or tranny T-case changes: Blue '84 K5, '81 Crew Cab- big and little, my GMC, my red '78 K20, the Truck Blazer, the Camo Blazer, the '72 Jimmy.

    Pretty much everything I have is getting taken all apart again, some down to the body and frame, and changed or re-done. I'm starting to get tired of this. Anyone want to buy some projects?

    Ambitions -


    *Record ENTIRE run of Cowboy Bebop on my TIVO because cowboy bebop rocks
    *Buy more Ghost in the Shell dvd's as they are released
    *Watch more Family Guy and laugh at matricidical, english accented baby Stewie
    *Join band and play my Bass Guitar with people instead of playing alone
    *Shoot more stuff with my SIG P220
    *Practice bump-firing my semi-auto AK-47 until I can shoot as fast as a full-auto AK-47 and be able to aim it while doing so. (Got the speed thing down, need to work on aiming)
    *Convert my Mosin Nagant 91/30 to a faux Sniper style 91/30
    *Buy more guns
    *Buy MIG welder and start fabbing things for cash
    *Finish rebuilding BMW
    *Finish modifying K10
    *Build a working jet engine out of junkyard parts
    *Attatch Junkyard Jet Engine to some kind of wheel/ski vehicle and laugh in the face of death by driving such a suicidal device

    ...that's about it for now.... Oh, and maybe start writing a R-rated violent/sexually graphic comic of some sort. Possibly in Flash since I could then add music.

    Yep... those are my ambitions.

    1. Finish paying off accumulated debt from raising two kids. That includes helping them after they had moved out, were self sufficient and supposedly grown up. It's a never ending job. Less than a year to go and we're free Bwhahaha.

    2. Home repairs: New front steps and porch, rear deck, back fence, retaining wall, insulation, and windows. Call in mud-jackers to raise a few settling slabs. Buy a new lawnmower, lay in front of it and get the latest haircut.

    3. Pull 350 and fix rod knock, stroke to 383 while at it. Install 465/205 with 14 bolt rear. Change 12b front to 8 lug outers, unless you give me your D60 because I'm such a likable guy. Oh the mod possibilities, this place is like a Siren Song. OK MASTER SHAGGY - GLITCH IN MY BRAINPAN/ DANA 44 IS WHAT I MEANT.

    4. Make it to a wheeling event even if it means riding shotgun. Hey I don't eat or talk much, just throw me a salted peanut every so often and I'll be your monkey.

    5. Spend more time with Grandson Elijah, work on baseball.

    6. Get to know the old .303 Enfield my Grandpa left me. Never seem to find time. Leave it to your gramps to leave you his old pick-up and gun. Which reminds me I need to get back to Indiana and see Grandma.

    7. Work on the business, lots of potential with a little more effort.

    8. Eat less junk when I'm busy running around. Work out on a schedule, too easy to skip days and lose ground. Got a free standing pull-up/dip center on the way that I put off for several years. Beats using the basement rafters and smacking your head.

    Most of 'em are long term:

    1. Pay off the mortgage within 5 years.

    2. Find a big piece of property to sit on until I retire

    3. Retire at 48

    Short term?

    1. Fix the goddam power window wiring in the K5

    2. Take Katrina on her first overnight backpacking trip

    Sorry, that's about it. In the meantime I have a lot of digging to do if I want my plan to work.
