    Funny the Finke is on my bucket list now, I have a 2014 commander sitting around, im looking at it with crazy eyes going yeah that will do, might not win but ill get in...
    Thanks guys!
    Totally agree with ya Doc - 55 is the new 26! - well... mid 30's.
    I remember, back when I was a teenager looking at the 30+ guys on the line thinking "Man, you're too old to do this stuff". Now I'm wishing I had my present riding skills back then. I'd kick my younger self's ass all over the place and say "So you think I'm OLD, do ya?"

    See ya at the Finke! - TALON's got something working in the wings once the new B&B Offroad shop is online and chugging away.
    I'll be the long haired old fart with the funny accent hanging out with him.

    Dream big mate. Life is for living.
    Much appreciated Jimmyg! Yeah, it's been a LONG term project - but the end result will definitely be worth it all.
    Every time I look at something and see the need for a part (from itty bitty wire harness holders to big-assed bits for suspension) I know it's gonna be "another day's worth of work". My goal is that the end of those days is before the end of the year. It's gotta be Mini-Raptor 2020!

    And as for your last line - totally agreed. This follows me where ever I go:

    Honestly don’t have a clue when it’ll go down. Don’t worry- it’ll all be posted here and on FB as the plan develops.
    I see an epic couple of weeks in my future, one day.

    Holy crap Doc! Your a local. If time and place fits I'd be more than happy to meet you all. Looks like Au is not so out of the loop as I thought it was.

    Ps I'm the duck all dressed up thinking the party was 4000miles away. Whereas the beer?

    HOME!!!

    3,300 miles (5.3K) and 66 hours behind the wheel of traveling. GOD I HATE I-10!!!! F'n road goes on forever.

    Had a great time with family and friends. Got to watch a MASSIVE condo fire on South Padre Island, TX on the 16th. Lightning storm all around us at the KOA campground and zap - condo up in smoke right across the street from us.

    Didn't get to race. They cancelled it due to weather that ended up not panning out and moved it to this weekend - just got a message from my sister-in-law that my brother, who was racing right now just broke. No details, as I literally just got it.

    --------------

    On the Mini-Raptor front - have had 66 hours of thinking time.

    First off I HAVE A TRACKING NUMBER!!!! WOO HOOOOOOO!!!!! My supercharger is on the way back. Supposed to be here Thursday.

    Got a box full of power window stuff. Yes, if I'm gonna have A/C, I'm gonna have power windows. Bow-chicka-bow-wow

    Been throwing around ideas for rear engine bay paneling - still scratching my head too. Need to pull out the CAD system and start cutting/folding/fitting cardboard sheets.

    Also starting to be able to visualize the dash. It's gotta work with the A/C so that gets incorporated in the dash and front footwell areas as well.

    Plan on getting my fingers dirty tomorrow.

    Oh - think my louvers are going to end up being carbon. Mold coming soon.

    Good to be home.
