    Any truck that has the hi beam switch on the floor beneath the parking brake is okay in my book.

    Thanks for the compliment Bushy, I'm slowly getting it to the way it should be.
    And I have to say the reviews of the Yokohama geolander MT's are true when it comes to noise, 50mph before you hear anything.

    Not at all since it's an old scool F-350, and since it ran abit hotter than I cared for on the trip to the tire shop I decided to replace the thermostat. Since you have to remove half the accessories to access the thermostat housing/upper radiator hose neck might as well replace all the belts and do alittle detailing while I'm at it ;)

    Well no wonder it was getting hot, some idiot put the thermostat in bass akward:confused:

    Been getting a million calls about the TS and if we were ok the last couple of days. So I decided to go out yesterday and get proof it wasn’t all that bad. And I ended up just watching and enjoying the storms for over a hour :)

    people who just see a vehicle as something to get into and drive, will NEVER know the joy and satisfaction that you and or I and others do.

    Seattle has earned a well deserved reputation as a free-run zone for the addicted, crazy and homeless. Until just recently, there was even an area underneath one of the freeways called The Jungle, where just about anything could and would happen. Without getting into politics, the city is still very much suffering from this problem with no end in sight. Years ago, the homeless pretty much just left you alone, more recently they are just as likely to stab you in the neck or throw hot coffee on your 2 year old, as just happened.
    With that said, my 14 year old niece was passing through town for the day last Friday and with another cousin and his daughters, met her near Pike's Place Market. She's on a grand tour of the western states and Canada in a six week, summer camp program.
    The waterfront area is undergoing a little revitalization, with the removal of a double decker freeway, as they built a tunnel to run underneath the city. I hadn't been to this area in two years and couldn't believe just how quiet it was without the clickclack of hundreds of cars running over sections of freeway, just feet away. These are all from the Pier 55/56 area.

    Underneath Pike's market is an allyway. There used to be a brick wall that people had covered in gum, hence the name "The Gum Wall." Not too long it was all pressure washed away, as it became too heavy and there was concern it would collapse on someone. Now, there's a new gum wall, which extends down the entire ally. I cannot tell you the shear level of disgust this causes me.
