    Truck is looking good. Are you moving out of the area? Or just closer to town?

    And congratulations. We need to get together and have lunch soon to catch up.

    Thanks guys... It seems to be getting better. October 19th will be a very tough day. But getting past these first times for each thing is important for moving on. Liz is totally at peace now. And with her daughters. They are in a good place. My new bride is quite the gal. On board with the current day issues and a good match for me. My home has been on the market for about a hundred days now. Price lowered three times and not one looker. A year ago it would have sold inside of a week. Glenn to answer your question, I would like to stay here in the Panhandle, but I have been looking in Wenatchee. Moving internally into WA state is something I am really struggling with. A very corrupt and drunk on power governor and very new very stupid gun laws that only hurt the law abiding, I am second guessing leaving here. My wife has an 87 year old Mom she cannot leave. And a step dad with terminal cancer. Her mom needs us. There is more to be revealed here. Time will show it. I need to find a job too. Glenn I would make the drive down for a lunch. I know you are busy. You make the time and I will be there. It would be good to catch up.

    I look at my truck every day. I intend to resume work on it this winter. With a goal of paint in the spring. I need to sell and move so that may change things. I do have some input about using a civi door. You need to add a bracket inside the door to hold the Mil wing window. I plan on detailing this in my next progress posting. An unexpected find there.

    Good to chat with you guys...

    Thank you Jon. No gifts please... I have been meaning to get a post in here. I had a very weird summer. I did not get much of anything done. I did roast a boat motor from not watching my temp gauge. No smell either. I would have caught it. 109 days later I dropped in a rebuild, got the cam broke in, took it out for an hour of figure eights to seat the rings and then brought it home to winterize it. We have been down to 2 degrees already. I have been pushing the Mtruck around all summer to use the shop for stuff. I really lost a lot of time this summer thinking I was going to sell and move. Not wanting to get any big projects started. I had one looker from Seattle. He said he really liked the place but being in WA state by 1500 feet was a deal breaker. He is sick of WA politics and the wokeness everywhere. I agreed and wished him luck in his search. I am off market now. My sense of smell has gone haywire. Everything and I mean everything smells like over fragrant laundry detergent. wood smoke, exhaust, farts, dinner, everything... Hey it could be dog pooh instead... LOL Maybe it means I am supposed to do laundry. Ha.. I will be in the shop this winter working on the truck again. I need to change a ring and pinion, rebuild some gear boxes, look inside the motor etc... I will be bending up a rear bed rack to mount a Cal King sized 23 zero roof top tent on. I am eager for that to be done. Back soon..

    Well snow is here and I have been laying on a creeper under the truck. I guess it is time to get more done. I am getting ready to bend up a rear bed rack to hold a roof top tent. This rack will fit my truck and M101 trailer. The M101 is 1.5 inches wider than the M truck. Oddly the bed in the M101 is just a tad bigger than the M truck. I have the roof top tent mounted on my little M410 trailer. My late wife and I slept in it one time in the yard and that is the only use it has seen. My intent for it was to be on the M715. And transferable to the M101. So I need to finish the doors and address the issue I found with using civi doors on an M truck.
    And the reason for the creeper was to figure out the best way to fix my mistake of welding up the best exhaust I have done yet and I accidentally blocked my upper shock mounts. I blame that on the covid brain. I still suffer from being a little slow from the fog. I am trying to find a way to heal from that. So far it looks like just redoing the exhaust is the easiest ticket. Goofball.. I need axle shock mounts, a rear gearing change, skid plates, and some type of cage for the cab. The tubing I am using for the tent rack was supposed to be in the cab. Nothing like a plan change. I will get some pictures up soon.
