OK, so, IF I sell a CHOPPER, the DOKA is sold, or...IF I do some job placement and maybe help get a HOUSE sold, it's sold...Or if Ican find a home for 3 rust-bucket 406's, it's sold...or ? NEXT ?!? If we just pull off this Lunar Landing from my backyard...

Actually, I'm just selling a UNIMOG. I'm barely finding time to devote to that.
HOWEVER, if a crazy biker taps me on the shoulder asking if I know where he might buy a Chopper, or if one of my business contacts in Austin has an opening (for WHAT, exactly...?) I'll pay attention.But, really, I just have a UNIMOG for sale...How many Bottle Rockets for the lunar mission was that ???

Warning :Austin has lots of great live music and a bunch of lunatics (keep Austin Weird) along with all of the expected College town/Texas State Capital
stuff. Could be hard on sleep patterns...It was for me, anyway. Perfect!

To be honest I am looking for work (windows sysadmin) in the Austin area, my wife hates western washington and I'm secretly hoping that your truck stays on the market long enough for me to get the house sold, at which point I'll have a big lump of cash to put down on another place down south as well as acquire another "groundskeeping" vehicle.

I'm rooting for the plan. I think Austin is a great place...bopping. Humid at times, but not as bad as , like...HONDO ! All of my contacts there are ad Agency people, so I'm no help, probably.

The truck has certainly stayed on the market for a long time...so far.

Geeze, more snow than rain lately...wierd weather pattern this week! Oh and I did sell one Porsche Too bad I didn't have your Gerber knife when I was trying to cut that 1/2" plate for my brush guard!

Let me know when you are doing the lunar landing...sounds like another worthwile plane trip! I'll bring the bottle rockets if you bring the beer

Upon second thought...maybe I'll pass...

AH, THERE you are.
A fine bottle rocket video...the engineers are going back to the drawing board after viewing that bit.
I think the first stage is a lawn chair/helium balloon deal (Pellet gun emergency descent), then it goes to the multi (Non-FLESH mounted) bottle rocket stage to clear the gravitational forces....lifting a rusty 406 CASE cab (WHERE will we EVER find one of those ?) to the MOON, Alice. Cheaper and lighter than acid-dipping, and more aero-dynamic than a Rusty SBU cab...

NASA is on board; they are interested to see if German steel rusts at the same rate in a vacuum without moisture. It probably does, but they want to be sure. I let them in on the project if they promised to start crossing their "A's " again. They fought it at first, but I told them there'd be a special cooler for them with PBR and Miller High Life, and they jumped onboard.

GERBER said NO, after they saw what results I had produced with their
implement at the recent mass-a-cree...Well, I don't blame them.

You know, we get these bonking big nasty rockets down in BAJA...they are
like $5 a pop, but you get the m-80 chest compression when they go off, and they are way up there....great fun...until the HUMVEE full of 8 Mexican
troopers shows up and they start asking where the GUNS ARE...and the DRUGS..." ARMES??/ DROGES """(sod the spelling...)they left after a rocket demonstration and after stealing a camera left on the seat of a truck..

ANYWAY, I was thinking that THOSE rockets would be the ticket....but they might just blow the CASE cab to dust...would that be bad or good ?

Nice work on the Brush guard, by the way. I'm thinking what I'll do, but it'll be a little different...Well, to the MOON first !

John, I got a good laugh out of that, a Lunar Mog. I guess a mog is heavy enough to stay put with the moons low gravity. I recall a cow jumping over the moon, maybe they meant mog, or Kais' Moog. The possibilities are endless, you could use the vacuum of space to spin the exhaust side of the turbo..... the lubrication gets tough though.........

Seth
71 416Mog with HT11a, 92 fj80 (going soon), 98 12 valve Dodge 2500 (new 4" exhaust), 57 VW Beetle coming along, new 85 300tdt for dad, 84 300td STOLEN!
