UPS didn't get dirty or break a sweat! He considers that a success!! Musta been a state job! :wink: :lol:

UPS: "I'll just stand here with my hands on my hips, I had to sit on my ass and drive for almost 8 hours yesterday at work...you guys don't understand how demanding that is on a guy my age!" :lol: :lol: :lol:
But he probably would have made the prettiest hooters girl in the bunch!

He he... careful guys. 8.5 hours a day, 5 days a week gives Pirates lots of time for plotting and scheming. I'm just sayin... :| :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wayne,

Looking Good!

Man that thing looks big! Most of your pics don't have anyone in them for scale, I didn't really get the idea of just how big your rig was until now!

Keep up the good progress!
