Many thanks to everyone who helped make this happen, especially Casey for hosting the wildest 20 hours of wrench throwing I have ever been a part of.

I started listing names and my brain vapor locked... ...maybe later it will come to me with some help from Krista. You know who you are and we salute you.

So glad to be a part of this!! Chris is having "technical difficulties" (with Tad over his shoulder...) but, should be on the board soon. Thanks to all who put up with my endless questions and eternal hovering. You taught me so much, can't wait to journey with you all.

We're home! That's an 8.5 hour drive if interstate 40 is clear enough to pull 80 and 90 mph! We are so pooped and happy! We are falling into bed right now. Have to be up at 5 am. Ugh. I'll try to start uploading pix tomorrow at work.

I think we missed mentioning Ron.... He busted hiney with us all day saturday.

This was the most amazing, exhilarating and exhausting weekend ever! And the pulled pork was awesome!!!!


THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!!!!!!!

Glad you made it home! I was tired after a 100 or so mile drive back to Phoenix. I can't imagine how exhausted you must have been after 3 days of wrenching and then that long drive.

I am happy to hear that p2 is running under her own power.. What are the thoughts on the tranny???

So what's the next plan? Paint and then grill/interior? Any shots of the Bob body work? It was fun helping but I learned a lot too. Watching the guys who know how to work metal is the best.

Next phase is paint/body. We might have to have a day long final assembly WOT when she goes totally back together

What got fixed on the Subey was the alarm system. One of the mechanics there was very savvy with alarms and said he could fix it no problem. I said "can you just remove the alarm system?!" yes said "no problem" We are gonna eBay that thing to get some lost money out of that thing. I hate that car. Verified Hate. Not many things cause me that kind of feeling. I tolerate the car because... well I am fairly tolerant. In 1100 miles it leaked 6 qts of engine oil. The front seals are blown out. Again. And now needs brakes. Again. Oh Well - this is really just a car. Not anything near an FSJ.



OK - on with Jeep talk...


I dunno about purple woodgrain. You gotta deal with Krista on that.

The word that is totally not adequate but keeps coming back around in my head is:
WOW!!!
and I said that several times today to Krista and she knew what I was talking about. OH heck yeah - the pulled pork was the best and addition of cole slaw was over the top!
THANK YOU SO MUCH - EVERYONE!
This here connection goes beyond the cyber space and is real.

I like the sound of that. We want everyone to know we do not want to push the clock on this. It will take a couple days to catch my breath on what has already been done. My heart did double time when she started up yesterday, oh my.
