What did I do???

I'm back in debt up to my ears again. I swore after I paid off my last truck I was gonna run that thing into the ground and I was working on it untill some kid in an 06 ford focus decided to fall asleep behind the wheel. Everyone was okay but both vehicals were total losses. Mine because of age and his because of...... well I'll let the pictures tell the story. So anyhow I went and lost my mind today and bought a new/used truck. I'm glad I now have another car but screw having more payments.
The new truck.

What's left of a focus.

It is a diesel. I finally got some more pics loaded off the camera. I also got some pics of my last truck that got hit. The car that hit me got the worst of it, Mine was totaled mostly because the damage amount exceeded the the cost of the truck as far as the insurance was concerened. They did give me 7300 for the truck and I sold my plow for 1200 so i came out alright in the end.


This was the old truck and a few more of the car that hit me.

sucks about the old truck but hello new one. You going to put a blade on the new one?

I don't think I will be putting a plow on this truck. At least not anytime soon. It's a big truck to start with and I don't need to hang another 3 plus feet of plow off the front of it. I'm bored when it snows because I can't plow now, but i'm not missing it all that much anymore. Screw winter and the snow. I'm ready to ride. That 40mpg on the bike is looking better and better with diesel sitting at 3.69-3.79 per gallon when you only get 15.5.
