Chevy Flex!

I've been bored out of my mind since moving, so I went wheeling two weekends ago with the Chevy. Nothing too muddy, just a couple of trails. Almost got stuck once coming up one of the hills, but I made it out, and I only got a small dent on the bottom of the rear fender on the passenger side.

Also made a little headway on the Ranger. Got some more stuff out that I want to replace and clean up, but I still haven't gotten a T-55 to finish getting the head off. My dad said he's going to look for his, and I'll take a look through my room mates tool box to find something.

And here are a few pictures of the new house. I think it's like, 3 acres or something. 2400 square foot 3 bedroom 2 bath and a 2 car garage.

And of course, the truck in the drive way:


My room mates are getting married next month here at the house, and after that, I'll be bringing the Ranger over to work on it in our garage. Hopefully the land lord will have his stuff out of there by then.

The Metro is the land lords, and it is totalled. The rear axle was used as a tow point to pull it out of the ditch, and it got bent in half.

The dent on the Chevy happened from low ground clearance and hitting a rock shelf. I didn't take any picture of it because it's minute.

I moved, and it took this long to get the damn internet hooked up and working. It was hooked up early this week, and I spent lots of time trying to get it to work, but had to have a tech come out and fix it today.

Hell yeah, Mikey. I'll even have a spare room for ya if you want, and a **** load of couches, lol. We even just got another one for down stairs. And one of the coolest bars in the area is only about a mile and a half away from my house. Quiet, roomy, and POOL TABLES!

If you want to come out too, then come on out. Like I said, there is a spare room, lots of couches, and a **** load of floor space. The room mates are getting married on August 1st, I believe, so any time before or after that is cool with me.
