I should not rub this in, but, the 2000 7.3 is still hauling the bacon!

204,000 miles and this is what it did last Sunday!
Stopped at a truck weight scale just for fun and the whole rig weighed in at 19,182 pounds.

Hey Don.....don't you know when it's time to pull the plug??? One man can only drive
one truck at a time let alone find time to work on them.

Oh guys, I never thought that I would buy a new/used truck thinking how long I would last. It is a factor in what I buy now, dang, I really didn't think I would ever get this old! Well it has happened and much of it has to do with the freakin heat. I cannot do much any more which is depressing. However, if I go down, I will go down swinging (or shooting), this is life I guess. I hope all of us will keep on going to the embarrassment of the Millennials . (spelling on purpose). I have one son (step son) that is this way. I believe I will out live him. But dang why do they think they need a new car every year and four vacations a year. Forgive me I'm cranky this afternoon, can't find a Rochester "B" rebuild kit in the hot barn. 2-ton that's great, I needed some good news. Doc.

I want to start downsizing in this phase of my life, but it is hard to shake this addiction.
My Dad told me years ago, "If you get too many toys, you can't enjoy any of them."
He was right, but, I didn't listen!

BTW, the new winch worked great!
