    Where in IL will you be moving? Im in Central Missouri, but would be glad to show you some offroadness south of St. Louis (1.5 hrs south) Welcome to the area. So, does this mean we will see you in this forum more? Good luck on the move.

    Yeah you'll probably have to put up with me some now. I dont know if I'll get my truck up here asap, it may be a few months for that, but I've got a few little projects I can bring and work away on in the garage! I'm moving to Batavia, just west of chicago. A little far north of you, but once I get my stuff together and get a trailer and all, I'll be able to go on some weekend trips and stuff. Thanks for the offer, i might have to take you up on that!

    I take it you havent seen my blazer in a while....it's going to take some solid engineering to fit ANY type of top on my k5...although, maybe a 2nd gen top shortened with a bikini top to cover the front and half/canvas doors would get me by. Then I could just use the bikini top the rest of the year!!!

    Hey Bryan,
    Congrats on the job. I am looking for work too, and may end up in Chicago after all. I grew up there and my relatives are all there still. Dowtown Chicago, and Aurora. The wife and I visit them a few times per year. I'll look you up and we can visit a few bars /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
    Stay in touch.

    Welcome to IL, I'm in Momence, near Kankakee. Give me a shout in the spring and we can go down Attica. I say spring, cause my truck should be done by then. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Congrats man! Glad to hear you have made your decision. When do you expect to be coming up? Have you found a home here yet? Hope your wife was able to make arrangements at her school.

    AGAIN, let me know if you need anything. I am within 30-45 minutes from Batavia, and would be more than happy to help with anything you need.

    Congrats and Welcome!

    -Dan

    Hey, once you get settled in, consider a trip to Attica!! Probably about a 2-4 hr drive from central IL. Love to see you there /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Re: Well looks like I\'ll be in your neck of the woods...

    Well as of Saturday, I'm a yankee right now. Never thought I'd say that....but I like it here. Way different than anything I've experienced before, but I accept the challenge! And the job is very different from what I expected too. We found a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhouse with a full basement and one car garage. Not optimum, but I'm going to try to get some light fab done there. You do what you can afford I guess, and just didn't have the down payment to buy right now, and also didn't have the guts to quit K5s cold turkey and just go for a garageless apt. Anyway, I think I can do some sort of minor fab to the blazer while i'm here....hoping maybe someone local can hook me up on a weekend strip/swapathon....hint hint....

    Anyways, just wanted to sorta update yall.

    And Dan, I'll be calling you ASAP.

    Bryan
