Looking forward to living vicariously through you on this one Bill. This is just the configuration I'd like to put together- if only I had the skill and a wife that wouldn't kill me for adding another Rover to the stable. Subscribed!

I thank you for the offer. There's plenty of room at the house, which is waterfront with all amenities save for computer connectivity. I get two or three bars of 3G on my iPhone. There are 4 kayaks.
I am free the weekend after MAR onwards. Maybe Columbus Day weekend we can do the demolition on both, which will be extremely helpful. The place is about and hour and forty five minutes away near Cambridge MD on the Eastern Shore. Thanks.

Ah, well, she bought this truck for me as a 5th wedding anniversary present back in '95. I have to get it back on the road so she'll quit razzing me.

That's 2.5 hours from here so 5 hours of driving for a day trip. With my current workload to finish my garage project and the perpetual list of rover projects I doubt I will be able to assist anytime soon because I can't spare more than a day at a time and I'm not sure I'm willing to drive 5 hours to help for a day . But who knows. remind me closer to the time and I'll see. Columbus day weekend is doubtful for sure.

Yeah, it's awful much for a day trip, even for me.

Bill I might be able to help the weekend after MAR, if we start early as it is a tad over 2 hours for me

I drove to St Michael's to pick someone's Series ( DON'T WANT TO USE NAMES *LOL* ) so I could spare some for a tear down

Lets talk as the day approaches

I thought exactly the same thing when I saw it. He's got the sweet tractor, that 109 and Range Rover in the yard, a bunch or kayaks and he lives on the water. It's like fantasy land for us Rover geeks!

I power washed it. Got more grime spattered on me and the tractor than I removed from the engine.
Tractor is a 2006 Kioti DK45 with cab (heat and air) and backhoe. It has a few bumps and bruises. Love it.

If you come pull the stuff it's yours. I don't want the hassle of selling/shipping off used parts. Tailgate is OK, just needs some minor attention. I think the heated glass is not heating, otherwise very usable. Interior is typical; all the seating good except for the driver's seat bottom. carpets need cleaning. Headliner was done once but it's saggy again. Console not too good. Wood pieces generally good, save for window switch panel.
There is overnight accommodations, as I believe that the trip from Raleigh to Cambridge will take you about 8 hours each way.

I think Pedro needs to drive his truck over there and show the PO what he's done to it.

I'm warming up to the idea of coming over, if just to see this shed.

I'll save you the trip C. This is what it looked like before I filled it with boats and tractors. Note piles of construction debris:
