Finally got my truck back from the shop Tuesday afternoon - I took off at 330 and arrived at my door at 1AM today. It drives like new. I don't know if I left heaven or hell, all I know is that here, it's cold and wet and there, weather reports on TV might as well be considered commercial breaks. Time to grab a snack or go to the bathroom.

I enjoyed myself in SD - thank you svend and atp for your graciousness, atp is a true NASCAR stocker but.... I could have taken you on that final sprint if I wanted to. :D
I'm happy to have met everyone who I met. Real faces now.

It's good to hear you arrived home safely. It was great riding with you and sorry about the miscommunication on the Sunday ride. My wife loved the beautifully etched steakhouse bottle.

My four sample bottles showed up in a hallway.... at my house when I got home. I obviously forgot to load them up in my rush out the house last week. Never would have used them anyway as my prospecting plans were scuttled by my unexpectedly extended stay in sunny SD. They are beautiful - you guys would have liked them very much so that's my only regret in not having them.

I'm glad I didn't make too big of an issue about it with the shop foreman. They were innocent, guilty of nothing. Even though the costs tripled from the original off-the-cuff phone estimate, I'm back in business, the truck works well and I'm happy.

You deserved to win for all the work you did. You were big in many good ways. Hey, I found this place in Chula Vista with these mechanical massage beds - 40 minute sessions FREE for the first three times and $2 per session thereafter! A few nice mexican women run this place which also has two infrared saunas and some other hi-tech equipment for weight loss. Mexican music on loudspeakers are tied to a big karaoke screen and things get kind of trippy there in a fun way. It's worth a look.

well I hope your visit

aids your training schedule. If you ever need a leadout man lemme know. You got a hell of a jump, I'll bring ya to 200 or so m from the finish.I make an excellent launching pad.

get me the info, that place sounds good in a real surreal way

T'was a pleasure, Starliner. Glad you made it to SD - and back. Your truck gets the award for most miles driven. :)
