    Well so far this week has been rough, Let's just say I HATE 25 year old American plastic.

    But my latest 10,000+ round range ammo order arrived this afternoon and put a smile on my face.

    Gearing up for another doozy of a week. On top of my normal 80+ hour work week, I have parts arriving so I can finally fix and reassemble my tow rig. Have two new firearms I have been pining after for months finally supposed to arrive at my gun club Monday, but they are closed then, so I must wait till Tuesday. Tuesday morning I am supposed to report for jury duty for God knows how long. Thursday I promised my parents I would make and then bring them dinner. And then somewhere within all that I need to make time for an hour of daily stretching, 3-4 trips to the gym, 1-2 trips to the range, take my pup for an hour long walk each day, water around the property for about an hour and a half each day, mow, and find some time each night to have dinner with my beautiful wife and let her vent about her newish management position.

    Adulting can really wear a dude out sometimes. Guess the saying is true, ain't no rest for the wicked.

    So what are you all up to this week?

    WooHoo!!! Just called to check to see if I have to report for jury duty tomorrow. The auto recording told me that I was not needed, and thanked me for me service. Thank goodness! I really didn't have time for that nonsense this week.

    Finally got it back together late last night/early this morning. Got the new dash installed and fixed a couple of the aftermarket gauges during the process. Was not a fun process as most of the screws holding the top cover are behind the ducting. And that has to be put into place before you screw the cap on. Really going to kick myself if my heater core goes out soon. I even have a new one sitting on the shelf, but the original one seems fine and I honestly didn't want to spend the extra 30 minutes of work last night as I needed sleep more. Oh well, it looks a lot better than the annoying cracked dash cap. Now to move onto the fuel delivery issue.

    Now for that windshield...

    I've run a few deliveries in the company's ol' F-350. The engine sounds like a box of hammers on a rotisserie. It feels like it has a hard time getting out of it's own way. When it gets to a hill, I mash the go pedal and the cars can't keep up. I like it!

    Crap, I am in need of a new turbo... I have been avoiding this day for a while as I already knew but didn't want to admit.

    Went to the Pennywise and The Offspring show last night. Boy, if you want to feel old, just head to a show featuring some of your favorite bands from when you were a kid. Most of the crowd was my age or older, but man has everyone gotten old. The Pennywise crew has aged pretty well. But Dexter and Noodles really haven't. Old, fat, and off key. At least Noodles can still rock that guitar. Was a good show overall, and enjoyed going to a show with my wife for once. But looking over the videos from last night is a little depressing listening to how off Dexter was.

    Depends on your definition of easy. Going from a relatively stock system to a complete custom spec'ed compound turbo system. I spec'ed the setup so who knows if it will really work. But I had a lot of help from some smart individuals and vendors so hopefully it will be pretty slick.

    Going through parts for the compound build and am finding invoices from 2013! Have I really been sitting on parts for that long??? Wow.
