    I grew up in Prescott. My parents still live there. I'm in Chandler now. I know there are a few K5 first gen's up there. Not too many though.

    What's the weather like there? I build log sided cabins and a realtor from Prescott contacted me about building some for his properties.(maybe a hundred) Was thinking about moving there rather than pay $5000 each to get them hauled from Nebraska to Arizona.I've only been down to that area a few times.

    100? wow that ought to keep you busy for awhile[​IMG], where would you fit time in for wheelin?[​IMG].

    The summer is really nice- 80-90 degrees with 5-30% humidity. Doesn't rain much except for the summer monsoons- July-Sep. Winters we get some snow, maybe 4 or 5 times over the winter. Temps run from 30-50 depending.

    Yes that would keep me busy for quite awhile. But I'll celebrate when the deal comes through. You have to put in perspective what's important in your life.GOD must be first, then the wife and kids, working and supporting them, then comes my love of these old trucks and collector cars.Haven't had alot of time in the past few years for the trucks , since I've got 5 kids at home. Now that I quit farming and my oldest 2 can be more help, the shows are back on the calendar.My wife is supportive of my hobby,too. She knows it's therapy when I work on them.I don't play ball or bowl,smoke or do drugs,(love a cold beer though),so she knows I'm not throwing money away with these old trucks and they are an investment.Sorry I've rambled on. Dan

    FWP,
    This is my first visit to 1st Gen. I'm in Litchfield Park (West of Phoenix). My in-laws live in Cottonwood. I have owned a 72 Sub 4x4 3/4 ton. Spent a lot of money on that truck!
