Back to the supply house topic, same one, I had a call form the counter guy last week, "I severely undercharged you the other day. Your total was $90 something, I only changed you $54, no big deal, but next time you're in, could you settle up?"

Our e550 was 15.5, this one is 14.5, so we're trimming the weight, going through ever bin and box we don't need, or have been on there for over a decade. Taking off heavy tools that we can load when needed, like pipe threading equipment and such.

Tomorrow will be day three, day one was picking it up, moving shelves and a few other errands. We'll be finished tomorrow. My Master is anal about keeping the truck clean to begin with, but I'll have to say it's coming out better. One new aluminum shelf instead of wood. The one thing I don't really like is the fiberglass box. I wanted to at least put up 1/4" plywood with 1x4 or 6 for anchoring, but not my truck.

I'm getting tired. Have a full schedule next week, might work Saturday, but I'm on vacation 9/19-9/27! Taking the family to San Diego, first family vacation other than a long weekend. Unfortunately I know it's not going to be relaxing, so much to do and show my son. He'll be on an airplane for the first time ever on his 9th birthday! He's both excited and scared at the same time.

I'll turn my phone sideways and take some pictures tomorrow. I don't think everything will be back in place, just everything we'll need next week.
Coming to SD at the right time, the first-ever Goodlife festival is the 23rd!

I'll have to look that up, or ask my mom. I can't believe it'll be exactly 14 years since I moved from IB to Michigan, plus or minus a week. Of course my kid is all about lego land, the wild animal park, the ocean... I'm in it for the food!

Well it may be cancelled, we shall see...

Food? Big ol plate of carne asada fries sounds good right now. You can feel the arteries closing up but totally worth it

Lol! Just looked it up. I heard about "farmers markets" out there, but not a festival! My mom, who lives out there is a hippie chick and into alternative medicine.

Recreational out there now, right? Medical here, but stub your toe and you can get legal.

Stopped to look at a job on the way home. Snapped a picture. V10, had her up to 80 once, rides nice! But we'll see once she's loaded. Honestly I don't think as well as the diesel, but I don't know with the v10. We're going to cut our weight, have to going from a 550 to a 450. All fiberglass box... not sure about that.

That fiberglass box will give better gas mileage for sure,not as much weight to drag around,also when you restock it don't out as much stuff on the truck,it's amazing how much useless stuff we drive around with everyday and never use Ny of it,when I traded my pos dodge 2500 truck off to a ford one ton with duality wheels I didn't put near as much stock back on the truck,get better gas mileage and not as hard on the drive train,ALSO for anyone thinking about going with dodge for a work truck,DONT,they are a junky no good piece of crap,I could say a lot more but I leave it at that,also mastermark my ford that I traded the dodge to came with a tommy lift LOVE IT and my very delicate back loves it lolololo

Gotta love supply house warehouse staff. Go to Fergs for a will call pickup. Bring me my water heater and guy leaves to bring me trim for Grohe. He brings me a 1-1/4 stainless ball valve. Good thing I checked
