I have been wanting to replace the van for a long time but I haven't found the right replacement. Til now. Just down the street was this set-up. I'm not sure what the weight limits may be be but I can adjust. The only problem I see is that the highway patrol may get to know me on sight out on interstate 10 and give me an escort or two. Heck officer Thurman already knows my van and waves when he goes by.

Back to work

Got the new floor on the trailer and re-welded some spots bent or broke by the scrap yard. Put new tires on and packed the bearings. So now it's time to take the rest of the scrap to the scrap yard. The wheels and axles were the heaviest and then a lot of other stuff to bring the total to 2780#. Whew, what a job. The weather didn't co-operate either the temperature has been 100+ for three days (we wanted to get out of Austin because of the heat, didn't work). Took the load to Fort Stockton this morning and cashed in. By the time I pay for gas for the trip I just about break even. But on the plus side all of the stuff I have been trying to get rid of is gone and in a year or so the grass and yuccas will be back and the whole place will shine.
