    Nothing exciting for the truck except it went into storage for the winter. Hard to tell, but it’s not in my barn. We decided with the housing market the way it is to sell our house. It literally sold after 2 hours of being online. Plans are to stay at my parents while they’re in Florida for the winter and move into our new house (currently under construction) in May.

    I bought my house in 2008 as a bank foreclosure. Literally tore it to the foundation and rebuilt it. Built the barn in 2016 and finished up the landscaping. This was my place before I got married so we’re excited to be building a new place together.

    What a great thread to read. Great job on everything, the truck, the baby and the house. I'll be following, I've owned a 98 since 2003 and don't plan on getting rid of it. Luckily, I'm in Nevada so I don't have to live with all of that rust. Great Job

    Not much going on in the world of my truck, but the new house is coming along good.

    You probably will at some point. I’ll be putting it back on the road around May when the salt is gone.

    Update on the house...electrical is being ran currently. We’re being told drywall will be in a few weeks. Just ordered my lighting for the garage the other day. Going with 32 4’ Barina LED’s. Somewhere around 208,000 lumens altogether lol.
