Thank you very much. I saw that one a few weeks back too. It was listed here as well. iir... The area code was for NY somewhere? I just figured it was a scam and didn't pay attention to it.

Coupla reasons...Dallas= hot and dry/no rust BUT all his pictures are in the shade of a big tree so maybe minimal sun damage?!?

Bill can tell you about sun and TX RRC's.

Also, Bill, is that a Brownchurch rack?

I'm the 3rd/4th owner. The seller bought from the original owner in Fredericksburg, he sold it to a friend in Austin(?), he then bought it back (Dallas) and now I have. She's what I've been looking for.

Weather was bad so had to wait an hour for it to clear, OTW and checking fluids while she leaves her mark. Great truck...

Who did you fly on? Looks like a Jetstream. Who operates turboprops anymore?

Or are you feeling so good you chartered your wings?

Right! Like I have that kind of money LOL No, there is a new charter service that flies between Austin and DFW. www.publiccharters.com or Texas Sky ... it was great and the ticket was $125 one way.

It could happen. I don't have lots of money and usually travel backpacker style. But sometimes I'm feeling really good and treat myself to the Peninsula Hotel.

Exactly, if I were to treat myself it wouldn't be on the flight. I'd extend my vacay first. The pilots were telling me about one airline charging $18k? That's insane!!

Thanks! No... hummm I could use that as an excuse but I've got two other RRCs I've been looking for that 95 LWB for months. You know how I feel about these trucks Bill...my neighbors are starting to ask questions and I'm glad I don't live where there is an HOA cause they would have a field day with me about now...

Was nice to meet you...

That's a treat for sure! Only done it once. HK for a week. Now that was something! How do the others compare?

On the way to a job from NYC to Halifax our flight got cancelled due to a snow storm and the airline could not rebook until a day after we were scheduled to return. The client decided to charter a G4 at a price of $30k plus 5k for de-icing! I had been traveling for over 24hrs & couldn't even enjoy the beautiful jet.

Good for you Carmen...enjoy all the issues you will get with electric gimmickry. Start by buying all the ECUs you can find at junkyards.

Found a sticker on it. bummer...I know, I didn't get a wink in either, but it was fun because there was only seven of us on it including the two pilots and I haven't been on a plane that small in awhile. It's like a roller coaster lol.. I'm still baffled...$18k for a one way ticket...wow
