    Got to spend New Years Eve as "tow guy". Moved a Scout II 100 miles. Then when I got home, got to tow a friend's Cold Vista Van that blew up to his house.

    The tabs expire on my '84 truck tomorrow. So I had to get my last usage of the 2004 tabs. :grin:

    Your tags expire first of the year? How does the system work there? Indiana does it alphabetically. Ours (Reding) expire in August, grandparents (Whitaker) expire in October, etc.

    Well, the truck is still registered in Idaho. I don't know how their system works, but the sticker says 2004 with no month listed. My nest step is to go get the title so I can transfer it.

    I only license vehicles that run here in Washington. If I licensed everything at once, it would be between $33-$65 per vehicle or more, times 20 or 22 or something.

    I've been amazed at this truck. I took the plow with cause I needed to plow out my roads while I was up in the area. I didn't get stuck and I even pulled a one-axled parts Blazer across my field on packed snow. After I got the Scout on, the 350 felt pretty loaded down on the road w/the plow, but it didn't even get hot. I just keep the blade low and the fact that the truck has a body lift too raises the radiator up into the air-flow zone over the blade.
