My mistake. We were. Turns out, sometimes threads get hijacked. It happens.

Got it!!!!

Well, me and my buddy Brian picked up Capt. Dave's 110 from customs and it's sitting nicely at Brian's garage in Charleston. The Capt. has a pretty sweet ride coming his was as soon as the shippers pick her up. Was awesome that they put the quarantine sticker right in front of the drivers side windscreen and the tape of course barely peel off and left tape all over the drivers side windscreen. Dave, hope you don't mind me posting a pic before you do! Got too excited.

Chad, you beat me to it. I was logging on to speak you and brians praises. The truck looks great, thanks for posting a shot! I've said it a number of times but I sure owe you one. As soon as I financially recover from these unplanned expenses, the wife, kid and I are going to have to make a drive to Charleston with the sole purpose of taking you and Brian out to dinner and for as many drinks as you want. Until then, may karma repay you ten-fold

Folks - Chad (triple9music) went out of his way to pick up my truck within 3 hours of it being released (a second time) by the port. These dudes are absolute rock stars...

Dave,
It is our pleasure to help you. I am sorry you had such a hard time with this import. This just reminds me to find a good car wash service in Southampton.

Probably a faux pas to post a pic before the owner does but I just couldn't help it! Like Brian said above, we were stoked to help! and yeah, taught us to find someone with a nice pressure washer in southampton.

Glad it worked out. You guys could all go to Cafe Mosaic in Charleston/Mt Pleasant and probably save some $$ on all of those drinks you owe them. He's another board member.

That being said, I've worked with plenty of females in Combat who would put the average teary-eyed, soft-bodied Private we've received in the last few years to shame. There are still some good ones coming out of the school house, but for the most part the quality has dropped. If boys were still raised to be men, spent time outside once in a while and played team sports growing up instead of playing Airsoft and xBox then we might not have such a hard time building warriors. But I digress...
I knew several of the first female cadets at VMI (the ones who had to pass the male standards) while I was a W&L undergrad. If they kept the standards the same, I don't see an issue. Of course they won't. Same thing happened with disparate impact and civil service exams.
