Black and Bruiser, combining parts

    So after more than a month of stewing and talking with my wife, I got a buddy to run to Denver with me. We took cash, and his truck and trailer. We left his shop at 11 A.M, stopped for a quick lunch, and got to Mark's house about 3:30. (250 miles, mountains)
    My buddy Brent isn't scared of mashing the throttle!
