about the only nice thing about it is the drop visor, and the led blinkers, haha it is an old irving truck that was ordered with a 11r22.5 tires, 4.89 rears, a Cat c-13, and heres the kicker, a 6 speed allison 4500 series auto tranny!! It goes allright, but has alot less power then most of the trucks I am used to driving, most of the trucks we work on are at least 550's most 600's, and some 625's with 18 speeds. This was the only used truck we had ready to go, so I am going to use it for my cdl test on friday also, one less thing to worry about during the test also, I hope I pass

so pissed I'm going to miss it. I'm at my in-laws this weekend. I definitely want to go and watch a fight though.

Hope everyone is doing well - we picked up a 5th wheel camper a few weeks back, got the hitch installed this past weekend and finally got it. Now we are cleaning it up and getting ready for the summer season.

Still have to pull the boat out and clean that pig out

Sorry, we sold all the better parts and then sent the ole gal to it's final resting place the salvage yard. If I see any parts I'll let you know though.

I was leaving mcdonalds and my steering box locked up, hit the curb, busted the tire, broke the box off the frame, tried to move it out of the way of traffic, caught a trailer and it opened up the passenger side of the truck. My parts are starting to come in, it will be ready by the time the snow flies! haha

Fishing is mostly about drinking, half the time there isn't even a line in the water. The Dotty B is my Yacht but is a 16'er, we'd need another boat too

I was wondering about snowfall totals up in the Caribou area? I might be relocating to the area for work and I was wondering about the plowing up there. Thanks in advance for any info. George

Average is about 120” a year. The last few years it has been a little below that, no really big storms either. where would you be working up here?

My wife is interviewing for a job in Presque Isle. I'm still looking myself. I work on a framing crew and plow for a company on a commercial property in the winter. I'd like to find the same gig up in Maine.

If she is going to work in presque isle, I would look at living in pi or one of the smaller towns just outside. Rt 1 between caribou and pi is nasty in the winter.
