It drives nice. It fits like my LJ, except the back seat is bigger.

He really wants to use it to tow the willys someday when we get that project going.

Re: Important

some things still remain gas powered, but with electric start.



i have a problem collecting sno throws.

other than that, there are no more gasoline powered tools here, and I'm slowly converting my mother in law to the kobalt 80v stuff for everything that you don't ride.

I was also a tred setter with 40v stuff, and while it doesn't suck, the 80v stuff is betterer.

Offer on my house accepted. Was on the market 6days and had 4 offers. 3 10k low and 1 full price.

Still nothing we want on the market. T-30days before im moving in with my folks until further notice.
Starting to talk about building new. Wife is liking the idea of designing everything we want to our liking. I am not liking the idea of it taking 6 months.
We are meeting 2 builders on Monday. If nothing great joins the market but then we will probably go that route...


In other news, accepted a promotion at work. This is my 3rd promotion in 2yrs with Amazon. I am now part of the Sr Management team. I am not sure how comfortable I am with the rate of promotions. Am I great at what i do? or do people fly off the shelf's faster than product around here? Only time will tell. My goal, make building improvements and be there for the techs. Old management seemed to not give a rats ass about the guys on the floor. Get some leadership experience and build my resume so if they do can me, I can find something quick lol.

Congrats on the promotion.. hopefully wherever the new house is.. its not Illinois.

I had an interview with Amazon Air a few weeks ago. Very uneasy feeling about the whole thing, if they call with an offer, it will have to REALLY blow me away to consider taking it.

How far would you guys drive for a rust free jeep? Looking at another comanche that's rust free but it's 4 hour away. Thinking it's worth the drive to get it instead of doing rust repair on one I have.
