It was great to see Dave and Wendy yesterday. I wish I had more time to hang out. I got a quick crash course on TIG welding aluminum and ended up leaving with a truck full of Jetta parts! Thanks Dave!

I put 610 miles on the truck yesterday. I went from Longview to Abbotsford then to Astoria and back to Longview. That was about 12 hours of seat time. Luckily the traffic wasn't too bad and it took me 20 minutes each way to get over the border.

I'm not sure how you got across the border Ben, I guess I didn't pay Canada Customs a big enough bribe? :P
