Been a while since I posted, went on a much needed vacation. Rented a 12 passenger van and took my son, 2 daughters, their boyfriends, grand daughter and mother in law on a 10.5 day camping trip. We went to Capulin Volcano, camped 2 nights in Colorado Springs and went up Pikes peak and through Garden of the Gods, then Camped at Dinosaur national park, at Lunch at Red Iguana in SLC on the way to Craters of the Moon in Idaho where we camped another night. Spent 3 nights camping in Yellowstone with a short trip up into Montana. Then on to Devils Tower where we camped another night. Then to Deadwood, Sturgis, Mt Rushmore and camped the last night at the Badlands national park. Had a great trip and some much needed down time. Came back and still no engine ready. Been working on things around the farm.

Last week was stressful, thursday the company I work for laid off 1/3 of it's people at the Tulsa office or about 100 people. 131 people total laid off and another 30 positions were nixed that people had already left and won't be filled. I'm safe and actually got a retention bonus to stay through Feb of next year, but stressful all the same.

Wife and I've really started talking about downsizing the farm, her getting her compact nursing license and hitting the road since I can work anywhere I have an internet connection and travelling some. Don't know if we will actually do it or not, but we are seriously thinking about it.

On the truck, ran into head issues with the valves not sealing so we had to send it off to the machine shop to get the valves done on it. Got it back and there isn't enough clearance between the valves and pistons so I ordered a .020 thicker head gasket today. Should be here Weds. So still not sure when I'm going to get to go racing. Seems like there is one thing or another that keeps popping up. I did get the graphic on the new carbon fiber grill this weekend.

Been a long while since I've made a post to update on the truck. Been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest. I took over as Commander at my American Legion post mid July and feel like I've lived there since then. Been working on getting things done and fixed there. Finished up the flooring in the main hall and got a good portion of the flooring down in the kitchen last night.

Started making some cornhole sets, one for me and one to donate to the legion so we can try a cornhole tournament as a fund raiser. Almost have them finished. Just need to attach the legs after the paint drys and then skin the tops with the skins I bought.

Bought a new Harley a month ago and been riding it as much as possible. Managed to put 1000 miles on it before I had to buy the tag for it. It's a 2018 Limited Ultra. Nice riding bike. Still can't get used to the fans running after I shut it down to cool the heads.

Now to the truck. Machine shops suck. I've had a crank and block ruined by one machine shop. The 2nd machine shop took 2 weeks longer than they said they would. I'm slowly getting it assembled here at the shop. Still waiting on a few parts that I should have gotten with the engine parts but still haven't gotten them. Tonight I finished torquing down the head and installed a few more things on it. All the drive train is in the truck now, and my drive shafts fit like a glove. Made the 2nd loop for the front drive shaft and attached it to the custom trans brace I made.

Most of the wiring is done and hooked up in the truck, just need to finish my piping to finish with the sensors. Moved my driveline speed sensor to the front flange of the tcase. Made a new tach sensor mount to work with the 4 magnets I glued into the Fluidamper balancer.

The season is almost over. 2 more races this year and one is this weekend. Won't make it but hopefully I can make the last race of the year.
