If my family would go with me, I would buy some land in Idaho and make myself a nice bubble to get in for a long while, my work may get really thin because almost all of our business has to do with fossil fuels, and it ain't gonna get any better.

I moved to ID from WA almost 2 years ago. It's been awesome so far and only looks to get better. I'd highly recommend it, family or no. :lol:

I really hope this year goes better than last year. I don't want another year of everything being shut down.

WE must all be busy, or we have all the bugs worked out of the old trucks and nothing to talk about.


long live the VE. :)

I have one that is on the road, one has charging issues, one has bad tires. The one I use hauls my small equipment around on a 3 axle 9 ton 5th wheel trailer. The other 2 are just toys, so they don't have to run, and when money is tight they wait. They may be waiting for a long time. :roll:

I thought maybe y'all saw the one on e-bay listed for 49,000, and just decided not to drive them anymore, :roll:


I really don't want to sell mine but dang, it would be hard to pass up 30+k if someone offered.

Mine's on the road. Going on 1000 miles on the new engine. Don't have the nads to take it to the track just yet. Mostly antifreeze leaks at all the cab/trans hose connections (reused stuff in good working order). I've managed to blow out the front freeze-plug (new). I've modified its replacement so as to never happen again.
I like to think I'll be able to drive it to he coast and back in the very near future.
