What's up!? I've been lurking for a bit and figured it was about time to stop being lazy and at least make a profile. I bought my '79 FJ40 from Dave Spratlen's collection just after high school in 2003. It was my daily driver for about 2 years until I went into the Marine Corps, and it stayed home. Got out in 2009 and got a job overseas as a "tactical taxi" driver. At least I get to play with my company's armored 100's and get paid for it. The hard part is seeing the 1000's of parked 70's and solid axle 100's that the UN has. I get cold sweats when I see that place. My down time at work is spent planning my trail runs at home. My next leave block falls on the best time of year for Colorado, so it's on! I even get to make the Rising Sun Rally for the first time! Bonus!

As it sits these days
If anyone happens to see me rolling around Littleton (Ken Caryl/Wadsworth area), throw me a Cruiser wave. I'm only home for about 3 months out of the year, so it's kind of like spotting a unicorn. Maybe I'll see some of you out on the trails in August/September!
