    Damn I wish I had some extra cash, but I'll be supporting the filthmonster when he hits SD.

    That's... a tough one to answer
    All you gotta do is sit back and watch the magic happen.

    Janis and one very happy pilot have left the garage just now. (wow,lot's of room now). He will travel with my trustworthy friend "walker" who,trust me will either crash him,get him arrested or convert him to something!!
    They got about 60 miles slab and 60 miles dirt with very nice scenery
    to enjoy,and a couple lakes cause it's 90+ right now. BIG smiles coming
    from Alex today and also from me!!! Thanks all. What else????????

    That was my stunt double you saw,I am way better looking and
    ripped than that old gray haired skinny mofo.
    Probably will meet ya in person if the Alex grand plan goes thru.
    P.S. Folks, he must be having fun on the ride cause we "kinda"
    thought we might see him today but not yet. His destination with
    my buddy Walker was to a beautiful lake (apache lake) to work on,
    party on,puke on,supervise on, some old houseboat that they are
    rebuilding,remodeling etc.,sounds like TFN's cup of tea. Plus
    I'll bet it's close to 100 today and I am jealous. Have a great day.

    Thank you DaFoole for another BIG contribution to Theee Fiilthy NooooMAD! WooooHoooo :thumb:dllamaI always wanted to use that emoticon...

    I think we're at 800- from the inmates sooo far, plus another 500- from an anonymous Craaaazy Phucker, plus a Bike from DaFoole, a new Lid, an Engine (not sure which inmate Jack???) and a new IMS tank..... not a bad start to get the kid rolling again. Just think another few thousand and he could do a South America RR for us... :rofl

    Alex is starting to feel uncomfortable probably about now. He started another chapter this morning (leaving AZ for the coast) in a rental van and his knees hit the dashboard in this thing (seriously) (what a POS).
    And he really does appreciate all of our support,in fact he shakes his head sometimes not believing it's all happening. I'll let Alex explain the rental etc. It was great having ya again Alex!!! Also folks,you would never know that he was ever in a crash,he's doing great.

    TFN is on his way to Sunny (not really, its cold and cloudy today) San Diego. Actually, headed to the RaceTech Electric warehouse in Carlsbad. We're getting started on a few projects that should keep us busy for awhile!

    I can't wait to see all the present's he's bringing in this crappy van, it's gonna be exciting.

    We should have a BBQ here at the shop for all local ADV'ers and fans of the Mighty Nomad!

    Anybody interested? I'm voting for a Friday night, it'll be here at the shop in Carlsbad, CA 92011 (North County of San Diego, right off the 5 fwy & Palomar Airport Rd)

    jeez tough crowd. I was being generous since he had a long drive today in a shitty rental truck. He got here, we've been rearranging the shop. Turns out he's just as filthy as ever, my bad. I'll post some pics of our new venture tomorrow.
