    I haven't been on here in quite a while, because I've been busting my ass at college. A while back I mentioned my appliaction for the study abroad program at Oxford, England. I was accepted today, and I'm not going to have to pay a dime of tuition. I'll leave on september 23 and be gone 8 months. Just wanted to share my excitement with the brotherhood :D

    Sounds like a plan. Don't yall drink some uber strong beer, dark beer? I'll have to give it a try. I'm guessing I won't see many K trucks over there?? I'll definitely PM you when I get there. Are there any other ck5ers in the UK?

    We do have some strong bowel bashing beer but I just drink kind of mid strength ale like London Pride and Youngs Bitter or Special. We'll take you for a beer tasting session!:D
    There have been a few members over here but I don't think any of them are still around. There was one fairly near to where I live, got quite chatty with him until he ripped me off for £150! He's in for a fat lip next time I see him!
    Oxford is only about 2 hours max from here so we'll do lunch one day and I'll see if I can show you around a bit if we get the chance.
    You may see a few K5s but more likely to see loads of Jeep Grand Chickens, Exploders and F150s. Rams are quite popular now too (even I have one!lol). 'Vettes and Chryslers are real popular.
    You've got Silverstone Race circuit fairly close by for all sorts of track racing, cars and bikes, and a motocross course. Not sure if you'll be here in time for the European finals at santa Pod (drag racing).
    Drop me a PM when you know your schedule and I'll give you some contact numbers.
