Re: since we have so many new members

Well, since you'll ocassionally get my dad or I on this name I figured that I'd classify that. I'm 16 in school taking BS classes. Working for Curt Warner Chevrolet this summer. That is if I don't go somewhere else.
My will be working for Leupold in the next few weeks. Right now he's a manufacturing manager for Pasco. Pasco is a Japaneses baking company. I've got the D50 and of course dad gets the Chevy.

Re: since we have so many new members

I'm new enough I'll hop in here. Many already have me figured out, but here goes.

I'm 26 years old with a wonderful wife and little 20 month old son who loves trucks too. I grew up in the mountains in northern New Mexico. My family owns a hunting and fishing resort up there. Gotta be the best kind of life growing up I could hope for. There are currently 20 people who live in a 15 mile radius of there. No stop signs...no post office...the only store belongs to us, and it sells fishing supplies and SPAM. We got one TV channel growing up, and that was only if we took my dad's '43 Jeep 10 miles up on top of a nearby mountain and switched out 2 Die Hard batteries running the custom made transformer he built inside two old refrigerators chained to some trees. I am an avid hunter, and return home at least once a year for elk season. I don't have the small amount of luck required to fish, but will do it as an excuse to get even further away from people. IF it gets boring, I'll start shooting at them with my guns instead. One day I will inherit, move back up there and give my kids the same opportunities I had.

Needless to say, off roading was a definite way of life for us. I've never lifted a vehicle or anything, but we always had trucks we would work on ourselves. Had to pull plenty of weekenders out of the mud on the 15 miles of dirt road heading towards Albuquerque. We do all the maintenance and everything on our place, including the vehicles. So, I guess I would consider myself a jack of all trades. I can do plumbing, construction, landscaping, welding, mechanic stuff, la la la and on.

I went to high school 15 miles away, graduated, and went straight into the military via Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Graduated there in '98 with a BS in Engineering Sciences (concentration in Space Systems design...a.k.a. Astronautical Engineering). Went into pilot training, ended up getting a C-130 Hercules, which I love. Currently stationed in Abilene, TX flying the Herc but wishing I was deployed to the desert like all the rest of my squadron. I'm also a mobility officer as a second duty, so I had to stay behind to help send 300 of my boys over there to help hunt down that bastard Osama bin fuken with wrong country.

I drove a '94 1/2 ton 5.7L 350 in "college" and beat the hell out of it. Special ordered the rig I have now, and been waiting for the military to pay me enough money to lift it and do other things.

One other thing about me....I can be long-winded [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]!

Re: since we have so many new members

I've had 2 different names also. I first joined just over a year ago with a name I quickly thought of. About a month back though, I decided I wanted a new name, and had my old one with only about 40 posts deleted.

So actually I've been here over a year, but my new name has only been here for a month or so.

About me: I'm 19, and just graduated from high school last year. Currently I attend a comm. college and plan on attending UW or U of Idaho to study fisheries bioligy. Right now I'm unemployed and cut firewood to earn some extra $. When I'm not at school or partying, I do a lot of fishing. I love fly fishing and steelhead fishing which is where my name comes from. Some may consider me poser since my daily driver has 35's and don't off road much. My truck is used daily to haul firewood though and I drive 5-7 mi logging on roads every day. I used to go 4x4'n a lot, but all the places near where I live have been closed off.

Well I think I'll stop now,
Later

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I don't consider someone with a daily driver a poser even if it's modded as long as they use it for something. Hauling wood is something ya couldn't do with a car, etc so that's not bein' a poser... Heh heh heh...</font>

Re: since we have so many new members

Evan, yeah my dad is going to work for Leupold Optics. They have a shooting range that you can go shoot in when you have free time. It's in the basement of the facility.

Re: since we have so many new members

AJMBLAZER's the name. 23, living in Middleville, Michigan. Currently wasting time I'll never get back working for Classic Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Only good part about it is the employee discount on parts for the Blazer. I hate my job, but the job market is slow here unless you have a college degree or prior experience. Got my app in at this place that just started here in town. Might be able to get on as a forklift operator, which would be great. Something I know how to do well and it's a 5 mile drive instead of the 25 mile drive I have now. Not to mention they'll have to pay pretty bad to not beat the dealership.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Was in the Marines from November 97 to November 01. Loved the life and the fun I had, hated my MOS (job) and the morons I worked for in my MOS field. Spent almost the entire time out in San Diego, CA. Great place, just to damn expensive to live there and no mud.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] I got my honorable discharge and came straight back here.

My eventual plans are to work my way out of the debt I got myself into when I was in the Marines. Young, dumb, always right, and credit cards are a bad thing.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] You younger guys, CREDIT CARDS ARE AN EVIL THING. DON'T BOTHER WITH THEM. If you do, don't get over a $500 limit and pay it off just as soon as you put anything on it! After my debt is gone or when it's small enough it won't be hard to pay, I'm gonna leave this snowy hell (sorry, cold and snow bother me) and move somewhere where it doesn't snow normally and get my pilot's ratings. My life's dream is to fly old cargo planes. C-130's, An-26's, An-12, Shorts Sherpas, BAe 748's, etc.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Dunno, have to see how it developes.

The love of my life is a wee lass from New Zealand, who due to monitary problems is in, and has been for a long time now, New Zealand.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] It's the mother of all long distance relationships. It's not easy, but it's what I have. We're both working on fixing our lives so we can get back together physically. It'll happen, slowly.

Only been wheeling for the past 2-3 years, but I've owned my Blazer since 98, when I bought it from my parents. They bought it new in 92. We've always had a Blazer in the family, I spent the first 14 years of my life riding around in the back seat of an orange 76 K5 Blazer.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] We burn wood to heat the house in the winter, so I've spent my entire life going out into the woods to get wood. Dad had to put the ol' K5 into 4lo many, many times to claw outta there with a couple thousand pounds of wood behind it.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] He's also an avid hunter, so that's more time going down 2 tracks to get out to the hunting spots.

Elk_Muncher, feel better? I'm about as long winded as they come.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]


Chrome sucks
285/75R16, 255/85R16, & 305/70R16 fit on a stock GM IFS fullsize 4x4 truck when on the stock 16x7 rims.
