I got my girlfriend a 2000 Subaru Legacy 8 months ago, $1500 bucks for a daily driver..got her out of the other car that had a payment.. lastnight she called me on her way back here from Fresno, engine died.i took my Truck and trailer to pick her up. Broken timing belt that bent 12 of the 16 valves. Replaced both heads with some other good heads and back in action. 20 hours later ive said it a shit load since I was at KCW, JJ said it a few times to me. <b>It’s all about how react to the problem.</b>

Yup, I,m probably not the best example, but………headed into town to feed the Hotchkiss rescue horses at 4 this morning and found three of the Crawford rescues out of the pasture wandering around. Got them inside the front gate and secure and went on my way to town. Ran over to the Stop and Save ,grabbed a cup of coffee and headed to my office to check for messages, turned off the highway and right rear tire went flat. Started to change it…spare was flat. Not quite 5 in the morning, I’m sure not calling anyone. Walked short way to my office where I keep the Suburban. Battery is dead, and nothing close to jump it from. Well, crap. The ranch is only three miles from here and I can probably catch a ride up to there. It’s a holiday and not one single vehicle comes along the entire way. At least my little red Subaru is at the ranch and I can count on it. Another dead battery. Walk to the back corner of the property, feed the horses there, pull the battery out of my tractor (it’s inop due to a broken fan belt which takes hours to change due to all the crap driven off the front of the engine that has to be removed in order to replace it) and lug it 1/4 mile back to the main house and install in the Suby. Fire it up and head back to the highway and it quits before I get there. Out of gas. Hike back to the far barn were there is a spare 5 gal can of gas, get it, haul it back to the car and get ‘er running again. Back to town, hit the Short Stop to gas up, grab another (LARGE) cup of coffee and back to the office to see what happens next, stopping along the way to put the spare from the red car on the white one.I’ll walk back later to recover the white car. BUT, Beth has been prepping all week for today, turkey is in the oven, I have great family and friends. This afternoon I’ll eat like a pig, fall asleep watching football with our rescue cats and dogs by my side, and tomorrow I get to watch the sun come up again. I’m so better off than most I can hardly stand it. Everyone have a great day !Baja MarkParticipantNovember 22, 2018 at 11:41 amPost count: 449
☝️ Yeah that sounded like a sucky morning! If you’d lost your temper it would have been far worse though. 🤙🏻alykatParticipantNovember 22, 2018 at 11:49 amPost count: 477tlambertParticipantNovember 22, 2018 at 4:44 pmPost count: 313

Funny story alykat (John)
I hope corporate sees this too, my girlfriend and I adopted another dog. I’ve had my black and white dog for 6 years(before I knew my girlfriend)
we went to the shelter to get a dog, we got the #1 dog on the list to be euthanized. Only reason she was on the list because she’s been there 90 days, super sweet dog! Someone beat her, otherwise she’s a great mellow pup. Hopefully she can slow down “Kim” my current dog.
I love any type of dog, Pit bull mixes are great.

Yeah Andy. We have two Pitty rescues. One full Pit and the other a Pit mix. Both are absolute lovers. Another is a Border Collie and the last and way older is a Chihuahua / Rat Terrier mix.John JonesKeymasterNovember 24, 2018 at 6:24 amPost count: 6700

As per Pat’s instructions, I now have obtained another 90 legacy. I would like to convert the 73 bay that I have, or start with the rolling pan that I picked up from Peet’s old baja.AndymParticipantDecember 1, 2018 at 11:17 amPost count: 935
Oh fuck, don’t let them talk you into buying extras..just buy drivers donors.
Rent me and KCW for 10 days and I’ll be there!

Dan’s going to have a new “favorite” road tripper.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.AndymParticipantDecember 4, 2018 at 7:23 pmPost count: 935

We did a swap in this girl’s bay. It actually had a type 4 that ended up on fire. So she decided to shit can the air cooled.
