    Hello, is anybody out there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?

    If your singing the above, then turn it up and :rockon:
    If you have no idea, what I am talking about, then forget my antics and read below...


    Sure is quiet around here.

    Hopefully you are all out working on your scouts.

    Anything new happening for you guys?

    The scout wiring is fried. Over the years I have slapped band aids on it, but it is time to upgrade. The problem is, if I am going to do that, then I want to upgrade gauges to the round style.

    $500+ for a new wiring harness, gauges, and a round gauge bezel for my SII. OUCH! Has anyone found the money tree yet?

    I hear you about it being quiet. I know that I don't post or even check in much unless I am actually working on my Scout and lately it seems that I have neither the time nor the money to get anything done. It's frustrating, but true. As deer season gets closer I may try harder to get some more done.

    Looks pretty nice from that distance. My scout used to be that color. Now I think it's about 5 colors...

    One day I'll get it painted.

    Hey Big Rigg,

    I'm out here just haven't checked in lately but I will in the future because I've just about finished my drive to work project that I started on May 26th of 2010. And I am starting back to work from vacation on Monday and will be driving the little puddle jumper. So back to the Scout! finally. Anyway hey everyone and hope you are all staying cool cause it sure is hot out there!

    Im here...
    We are trying to sell a house, so scout time has been limited. I have done a little work on the scout, ill update the build thread.

    My wife and I just had our 13th wedding anniversary. She is way too awesome. Here is what she got me...

    We headed south to little rock to see a Pink Floyd Tribute band; Brit Floyd. They actually put on a really great show...Here are some pics...

    My only complaint, they played the full 25 minute version of Echoes, which was really good, but due to time, they didn;t play a few hits like "hey you", or " on the turning away", or "cigar".

    But they sounded really good, so I'm not complaining too loud. :punk:

    Then we got home today, and I was surprised with this!

    I am totally pumped. The encyclopedia is really awesome. If you dont have it yet, get it!:hammer:

    Did I mention how awesome she is ?!?! So Cool.

    $$$ was awesome. I thought that I had pictures but I guess not. They had multiple sax solos and the guitarsolo was outstanding. Btw, welcome back jeff!

    Where did you get the shirt?

    I got my Scout Encyclopedia and it is a must have. There is a lot of information and pictures in it.
