I actually really enjoyed it (wonder why,lol) but I did get pretty good at it. Its been a long time, but I think I got to where I could bowl in the 180s on a regular basis.

Its on now.

I've seen all of the problems with these vehicles the guys have cobbled together (one is a Dodge and the other is a Chevy) and they have constant problems with them.

After what Ford has done with Mike Rowe and Dirty Jobs, they need to step in with their engineers and help one of the teams build a Super Duty based intercept vehicle. Real engineering knowledge behind the actual vehicle itself. There are a lot of people who watch this show and have seen the problems these guys have had with the Dodge and Chevy based vehicles they use.

I think it would be a great marketing tool to see a factory backed truck that could reliably take them where they need to go, not get stuck, and drive into an F4 and come out unscathed.

Not to mention they could parlay that into the life saving factor and helping people through the research and knowledge that the guys gain just by using their vehicle.

Maybe I need to start sending them some suggestions.

Just saw a Legend Lime on the show, it was parked at a gas station where the tornado came through.


I think I have a Mustang sickness.

Sorry. I was trying to poke fun at you, not her. I didn't mean to drag your better half into it. It was unintentional.

We did get the info on the physical test during our 2hr meeting with the recruiter. The minimun 2 minute requirements are 42 push ups, 53 sit ups and 15:54 for the 2 mile run. He also has quite a bit of weight to lose. I think for 5' 11", the weight is 185 and he's about 220. He's really stocky though, so I know if they don't make weight, they can go by body fat percentage. Even after talking to the recruiter, he's pretty set on Infantry


It won't even be driven that much. He's got a company truck and used to beg me to drive the 350 all the time. It's just a pain to try to park it in the lot here at work, the spaces ehre aren't made for long trucks. He said he felt weird driving it yesterday because it has so many options and it's such a big change from the 350. I'll find out tomorrow. I may drive it to work
There is no future for infantry. I would say just sitting down with him and talking it all over and seeing if he realizes that he needs a job that will help him out in the future after his military experience. Yeah a lot of jobs your not on the front lines but there are jobs that are important to keep up on to help those guys on the front lines. What I do is Sheet metal work on the helos. I am making sure that the pilots are safe when they fly and also that they have an aircraft to either go pick up the guys on the lines or to help protect the ones on the lines. I am not trying to say he needs to be aviation but it doesnt hurt to think about every option.

Has the recruiter given him a list of jobs he can do with his score??

I say wash off the area and keep an eye on it. You will know for sure if your truck is leaking or not.

**** that sucks but I say that it would be better in the long run for ya tho.










Ok here is a question for all of you. I just thought up a license plate for my Stang. What do all of y'all think of.............

I figured, but I still didn't mean any harm. I think we've known each other long enough to know that we are both full of **** and don't have bad intentions.
