  1. I did not. Still in the back of my mind however.
  2. I wish someone would buy this.....you know I don't have a truck to tow the big trailer now!

    Two Bombers in one stop.

    Yep, it was a rare night indeed! I was inside the trailer and heard a familiar voice. We had a great visit! I hope the rest of you all ate doing well!

    I bought a New 5th Wheel

    Very nice....you will really enjoy that one. Ask about the Northwood Owners group and their homecoming next year. They take over 1/2 of a large commercial campground in La Grande for several days. The owner there tells me they have a great time. We will be there in our SOB...some other brand! LOL!

    F1 engine warm up

    16 cylinder H engine.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H_engine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Racing_Motors From a time when designers and engineers were not encumbered by preconceived ideas....there was real innovation in F1, not electric motors. But that is my opinion.

    I drove one!

    The 01 had 385 hp, the 405 hp engine came out in 02, but the 01 was a heck of a ride in it's day. But the technology is so far ahead of where it was then. That Hell Cat was just unbelievable. If I could find one and if I could afford one, I would have one. All it took was that ride....

    These cars were as much art as engineering. The good stuff starts about 4 1/2 minutes in.

    You sharp eyed viewers might notice the Hellcat emblem on the fender and you would be correct. This is a 2015, 707 HP, Challenger Hellcat. Since I do not fit in most HP cars, I have never been able to experience this level of performance, handling, or braking. The closest car I've driven to this one was my 2001 Z06 Corvette. It went like stink and stopped incredibly well, but not like this thing... This is truly a race car you can drive on the street. It belongs to a friend of mine, so due to respect for him and his equipment, I did not hammer the car hard. Half throttle was it, oh what a half throttle it was. At 60 mph you can snap the throttle to half way, the car downshifts two gears, the front end comes up, the blower whine becomes instantly noticeable, and the car hauls ass. I backed out at 4000 rpm, but holy crap, does that thing run. I've owned a lot of hast cars in my life but this one has no comparison in my experience. Besides the power, it has good build quality, great handling, and incredible braking.... This car will become a legend. What a ride!!!
