Just kidding.... (sort of)

Seriously though, which store and who is it? lol

She told me a long time ago... I think it was named after a dog I bought her.
(Found it)
Abby's books and more
Danville Manor Shopping Center
1650 Houstonville Rd, Ste 233

She was a hottie... major hottie. My parents now lovingly call her "The Psycho Bit*h."

Brian, beautiful. I love it, makes me wish I had an FX4 all the time. I really like those tires too. wish I could afford some for the Ranger.

I always get the old "y'all ain't from around here, are ya?" with a sideways look. People here are so close minded if you don't look and talk like them, lol.
sounds like Indiana, i get stared at and I have lived here all my life!

Well atleast I know it's not just me!
And if I play with the truck in the driveway my retired neighbors come out and have to ask what I'm doing. Either that or just stare at me from behind the blinds. Oh well.

You have one of the only F-150's I like on this site. The others are to stock and way to ugly.

You have done very well with yours.

Yeah I always go with the white lettering in, but it looks good. If only I knew how to get the whites white again, but I would feel obsessive if I caught myself scrubbing my tires so they are bright white, lol.



I am home sick a little, honestly.
But really it's just the people here. I'll refrain from saying anything other than that. lol.

I'd appreciate that. I'm just 10 miles up the road from you, but never have had an issue in the 2 years I've been here...

True story. I have to try and stay ahead of Zach on the F150 since his ranger is so freakin awsome!
If I was pulling around a lot of weight I wouldn't have gone with 35's either, unless I actually had the money laying around to re-gear.

Don't get me wrong, I've met some REALLY nice people here.
And I know a lot of people back in Oregon Washington who I can't stand....
It's just a much different culture, and a much different way of thinking.

I'm sure it is. I've been to CA several times for work (Toyota) and there is a huge difference between West Coast & East Coast. I believe I'd be as frustrated out there as you seem to be here. Hopefully it won't get you down too bad though

Yeah I'm from Oregon. All of the Oregon meets I see make me miss the area.
California is different. I like it but I wouldn't like to live there as much. Too many illegals down there, and too many kids driving their cars that their dad bought them with 26" wheels.
But there are some beautiful areas there.
I like the Northwest. I like where I was living. Just outside of a big city, 30 minutes from a small mountain range (3-4k feet), an hour from the beach, an hour from the mountains (11k feet, skiing/snowboarding), two hours from the high desert.
Plenty to do out there!

just reading that makes me want to move!

wait until the heat/humidity rolls in this summer.

I did see a set of 09 badges PTM all one color on a black truck, I think that would look great on yours.

Westleys tire bleach will whitein those letters for you.

Ya I also know exactly what you mean if I try and flex somewhere around here people will just come out and look at me like I'm doing something major illegal. everything around here is private property also and that bugs me.

and your F-150 looks awesome man. Big fan of your Truck.

Maybe. Depends on what my wife finds for work. She's been doing retail stuff for now, trying to get state jobs. Had a few interviews but got a lot of "Oh we didn't know you were from Oregon..." comments.
She got a call yesterday for another opening so hopefully it works out.
IF she gets a state job, we'll try to keep her there for a year. Then maybe looking for either work out West, or a job like yours that allows me to live out that way.
Ultimately I'd like to get into utility work or law enforcement work.
My thought is to find a 14/14 schedule and try to become a reserve or something, who knows... It's hard to get on somewhere doing utility stuff.

Plenty to do?! Kentucky is the home of BOURBON!!! The sweet sweet nectar of the Gods. Or the largest cave system in the US. One of the few places you can see a Moonbow from the waterfall at Cumberland Lake. And the inbred people of the mountains...... I miss Kentucky.
