    So, a little over two weeks ago, I was already up in CDA on a road trip. Staying at my parent's house, woke up and got an email from LWS about the new shop. Asked if we could come up and see it, and he obliged on short notice. We drove up to Sandpoint that afternoon and saw the shop, which is on the other side of the highway from where I used to spend my Summers. Holy . Enough Toyota there to get a perma-chub. The shop is awesome. I can only imagine what the front office will look like in 6 months. Probably a maggot lounge with a touch of extra class. These guys are doing incredible work, prices seem reasonable, and I hope to get my Tundra back up for the mods LWS had in mind. I want to have these guys build me a '40 after I get my dream job.

    After the tour, and a short bit of rock crawling in a cherry FJ60, thanks to SkiLyft(just kidding), I got to take a ride in Vivian. It was soooooo smooth!! I looked for four years to find that truck, and it's the best I've ever had. Unfortunately, wife wouldn't let me keep it and the ocean air had had it's way with it. Actually, LWS, I bought that truck to drive the beach at Shelter Cove. Good thing it didn't make it up there, otherwise the rust would have been worse. Anyway, after a teary-eyed ride, dad and I decided to split before I got in trouble.

    LWS, Thanks so much for the tour, and best of luck with the shop. I know you guys will be doing great things there, and will flourish with your hard efforts.

    Now, to get rid of the Syncro...

    Hopefully the boss understands you coming in late when it snows.

    How far is the shop for the nearest slope?

    I am the boss! That's the best part of all this.

    Google says 26 minutes but it's really like 18. It's only 11 miles of driving.

    Ever the optimist. Up here we call them "traffic days." But if the bus doesn't block the road 40's doable.

    Shooting you a PM, stoked to see the shop!
    The whole human race is de evolving; it is due to birth control, smart people use birth control, and stupid people keep pooping out more stupid babies.
