    I used to stop in Hope every now and then. It always reminded me of something my mother said if we were wishing for something. ?Hope in one hand, and s@#t in the other and see which one fills up first?. I told my brother one day that there I could grab a handful of dirt and actually have Hope in one...

    I used to have to inspect the natural gas system over in Lincoln Ranch every year, plus everything else between Parker and Wickenburg. Lots of driving to the middle of nowhere. It was pretty cool driving through dry desert and cresting the hill at Lincoln ranch and seeing all the green along the Bill...

    I have my build thread over on BP ?Tip? scout 800 build. You really need to pick your direction before you start. I would have great difficulty putting a T-18 behind a big diesel, especially when a better manual is available. An engine swap is surprisingly expensive to do so the thought that you are...
