Im reminded of the phrase, "If you're going to do something, then do it right". You covered that both in how you wrecked the trans, and then how you dealt with it.
Nicely done.

You are a nasty person. You should try yoga.

You might try an emotional support squirrel.

Going to yoga won’t help. Too much “scenery” to stare at lol

Don’t go trying to rope me into this animal fetish you and a few others are in

I got to see the carnage in person...(Mike wanted to show me lol), I have seen loose things in my lifetime but lemme tell you.. You made Betty's look like it was nothing. I wanted to swing by while you were there James. I wanted to catch up since we didn't see each at the AZ races.

new trophys mike can put on his shelf! Should have stopped by! we didnt actually leave mikes till 7:00pm LA time but i had to get home that night to work the next morning. got a whopping 3 hours of sleep when i got home .

I would say we need to catch up at the Opener this year but i dont know how swamped we will be getting ready with the cummins. i gotta run the pits/crew. We will figure something out though, you cant miss my rig as ill have the toy hauler out there again for the wives and little ones.

After Thanksgiving we are going to start the prep on our rigs and get them ready to tow/race/pull.
Hopefully we will have a good amount of trucks from down here at least hitting the lanes next year. Last year it was only 4 of us I think. Casper is happy to go out again.lol.

Glad you made it home and got some sleep at least...

Well 750 miles in a week and a half on it (all towing) and she shifts smooth as butter. its evident the clunk i had going from forward to reverse as the planets jumping and nasty delay in down shift i got from 2nd to 1st coming to a stop was this as well. I just figured it was t-case related even after my rebuild a few years ago. nope lol. No more clunking and nice shifts.

the poor 15.5-16 denali dually lifted on 35s with a little larger trailer than mine passed me on the flats about 2 miles from the big hill before you come into Yuma (its a 6% grade but real short compared to going up north). i was cruising at 75 while he was doing 80. hit the hill and we both hit traffic. half way up the traffic cleared and he hits the right lane, i roll into it and around him i go. you could hear his rig zinging that dmax away while i was cruising up in 5th. poor guy
