What great stuff!

Follow-up Post:

Is it possible for those who participated to place orders and have me be billed? This keeps me out of the shipping business and saves a lot of commo.

Here is the free shirt crew, please help me with any I forgot:
Pendy (advice)
Yusef (material assistance)
Michele (artwork)
Ron & Mike (uh, everything else)

Jim, yes kind of.... They can PM me their sizes and I can order direct with my discount and have it shipped right to them, then I can bill you for what it cost me. Lets get these people's sizes and take this to PM or email and we'll get it rolling!

Thats awsome Mike. I still remember you driving away from the shop in the rain with no doors, in a rig that was to say the least a little, well, sketchy. I'm thinking wow, there goes one sick for a good time fawker. I think I was really just jealous.

Thanks Matt! When I first drove away I thought This could be real fun, or a complete disaster! And it turned out to be BOTH!

The legend lives on, I hear Ron (evilfij) has a big road trip planned this summer for Janey (as she has come to be known). I cant practically take her to my next duty station, so Ron will be assuming custody of Janey. Maybe he'll chime in with the plan...

I've come to believe that Janey is not a truck so much as an object of solidarity among the Rover community. I have met so many great people because of my involvement with this truck that it would be shame to keep her out of circulation.

LOL...I had to phone Ron last week (in his words this is such a Mel thing to be doing) about a legal matter and he hinted about this "next" journey! I am very game, I see a t-shirt being made Mike!

ROAD TRIP!!!!!

Have you got an older sister that might want to hitch a ride with me? Anywhere she wants to go, thats where.

I just saw the cartoon. I may have to buy a couple more now, since your bagging on my state.

I used to have a redheaded girlfriend in College named Janie. My current steers me out of view of the redheads, even now.

Roverchic, where did you get that shirt. I need it for my girlfriend. Although she does since she is a wayward mormon.

Matt...
