    It's been building up since 2000 when I was 19 years old. It's time for it to be gone, and for the field to return to mostly nature instead of mostly parted out truck remains.

    So long to you parts rigs... you gave me your motors, your axles, your lifts, your tires, your parts for the fleet for basically free. You were there when I needed the little things. But now it's time for you to be scrapped.

    I love having a field full of stuff and parts... but I want the family place to not be where I have my wrecking yard. So this weekend, we'll be getting rid of most of it I hope.

    Home owners association? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I don't think I could live anywhere where there was such an establishment.

    We've owned this place since 1911, and have two neighbors (one of which is my brother... and my stuff is overflowing onto his field too).

    The rest is trees and mountains. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Now the place here in Spokane... lets just say I'm sure my neighbors here probably think I run a chop shop or something with all the rigs they see go through here on my trailer.

    At least you have a trailer to get rid of the crap. Mine just rots in the yard. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    And to think that my homeowner's association hasn't said anyting about the frame in the front yard or the engineless K30 in the backyard. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    cherry beds? hmmm... there used to be a few that were probably "fixable"... but I think from moving stuff around, those without rust in them now all have dents or vice versa.

    I tried giving away some of the usable rust free stuff before... but no one came and got it. So we just started flipping rigs and cabs upside down to get to various parts or to move them. Theres only one or two cabs worth anything up there.

    I'm trying to give away bare frames too, and any parts off them like spring hangers and stuff. Not that there are any good parts left (I stripped and sold all the good stuff long ago).

    I'll be there from Friday evening through Sunday if you want to come up and scrounge for some little parts. Might have some of the guage stuff. Most of it is '73-'80... not a whole lot '81 and up though.

    We'll be trying to clean up and also getting ready for the mud races that are coming up real soon.

    Here are the directions:

    Screw the zoning homos. I've seen 1 acre plots around town worse than that. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif A man has a right to have all the shizat he wants laying around his yard if he owns it. I guess that's why I could never live in a subdivision.
