Longest trip yet.

This evening I drove the truck downtown. It is about 15 minutes and 10 miles if you head down the freeway. I am not ready to try highway speeds in the truck yet, so we drove through neighborhoods and on surface streets. It took over an hour and I think it was almost a 15 mile trip. I chose the route based on it being not too busy and a lack of major hills to climb.

The truck never missed a beat. Ran like a charm the whole way. Maybe it was my expert navigation skills.

More paint!

Still lots to be done, but I am pretty happy with this look for now.

I was gonna

pull the truck out of the garage this afternoon and cruise it around the neighborhood. Then I realized that I would have to move the junk that always accumulates in the bed of the truck when it is parked in the garage.

It looked to be too much junk to mess with, so I threw some junk out of The Boss Lady's car into the pile and called it an afternoon.

The junk laden truck will be sitting in the garage for at least the next week. I am leaving Wednesday on a week long solo road trip.

Big truckin day

On Tuesday I backed the truck out of the driveway so that I could repair the retaining wall. While it was sitting in the street, I power washed the driveway. Then, I drove the truck into the garage.

Round trip distance, less than 300 feet.

No breakdowns, no new mechanical issues.
