so many fucking projects i have these days kids... i sometimes feel as if I'm trying to stick too much up there, you know what i mean?!? perhaps not.. every minute i can spare on the Internet these days is spent researching parts for this project truck of mine... lately it's deciphering engines online. i have two viable Chevy 350 engines i can rebuild. one is out of the truck and from a 1975 Chevy truck, the other is in the truck and after many phone calls and hours or frustrating research i found it was made in Mexico in 1994 and sold to g.m. as a crate motor... well in the rebuilding industry that's called a "hecho in Mexico" motor.. no shit right, but those aren't really the ones to rebuild... if i were to tear down either of these possible transplants, I'm looking at about $525 in machine shop fees, plus another $950 to $1200 in parts to build a decent motor that's pretty enough for some other gear head to enjoy and/or want to purchase... on the other hand i can buy a whole complete motor already done from $1500 to $2600 and drop it in.. i could spend an ass load more than that, i found a motor that even cheese would let me bend her over onto for about $18,000 but, that's just a silly wet dream all around now isn't it?
i did manage to change my truck from a 78 to a 74 and prolly shouldn't mention that hear but i think my one police officer friend wouldn't mind, wink wink, csi Seattle...
other than that, camping season is starting and cheese and i are going to go for an over nighter into an area w call Indians on Friday, should be a nice beginning to that season.
with our shitty el fucking nino winter, our garden are having to wait, everything is starting to stack up in the green house. (it really is green in there!!!)
cheese and i are doing well, we love to love each other and hate to hate, but shit happens, plus I'm amazing and well perfect so... she saw her way to hang out for a while longer anywayz.
Ive got to get back out to "work" so keep it cool, and to those of you still checking in and commenting i love it and you, i wish i had more, since i don't do the social networking sites anymore, that addiction to get on the computer every free second of the day is fading... i try to be here, really i do... fuck it, it is what it is... enjoy the day!!!

i haven't been here writing for a while again, no surprise to any of you at this point eh? shit has been going down at my house for the past few weeks and it doesn't really make for good reading. mostly just a lot of disappointment and loss of faith but life isn't meant to be easy and full of flowers and fairy dust either... so i plod along... work has been picking up and i have been trying to not fuck around so much on the clock these days... my other jobs have begun and weather allowing that will be blossoming in no time. the Chevy project truck is coming along. I've been quite indecisive as to what to do. i found an ls1 corvette motor last week i could have put into it, then i had another truck with better looking papers (for no smog) almost fall in my lap this week. i don't want to take ownership of that until i can get my hands on it title and vins, so i wait. if that's to be the case and i get this other truck, i would pull the motor and build a racing motor for the monster truck. a stroker, exciting right?!? right... i just purchased the last bits of interior products that i need to finish restoring the inside and might even try to squeeze a couple more sub woofers in it some how... i know, i already have eleven fucking speakers in there already, but I'm feeling a little short on the ear bashing bass that my darker skinned friends enjoy so much... (one must have the absolute loudest fucking stereo imaginable in his town to be cool these days) umm.... I'm trying to get my head around how I'm going to do at least one week long trip a month this summer, from a decent backpacking trip, a week in the sierras, a week in Florida, a week long r.v. trip with dirt bikes and boats, a week off at home to do nothing... I'll figure it out, but it's also weighing in heavy on my shoulders...
that's about all i got right now. enjoy your weekends!!!
