Come On Get Happy

What’s up, y’all!
2023 is off and running, and so are we. gnob and I have agreed that it’s time to go hard. Though maybe it’s slightly insane, we’ve set an official departure date of February 14. That’s six weeks away, folks. Can we do it? Yes we can! Will we do it? Who knows?😁 We won’t fail for lack of trying, that’s for sure.
With the Fairlady issues mostly resolved, we’ve turned our attention back to Danny Bonaduce. Not the actor, the 1985 4Runner. I originally bought the truck so I could have my own to wheel alongside the Snale - you know, his and hers trucks, vomit inducing cuteness type of stuff. 🤢
While that sounded cool, I quickly realized wheeling wasn’t as fun if we weren’t riding together. And how would the dogs ever decide which truck to ride in? 😢😄 Plus, if we traveled the country in both trucks, then we’d need to buy a diesel and a gooseneck to haul the 4Runners around, plus a truck bed camper to live in.
All of that started adding up, and it didn’t sound nearly as fun, it just sounded expensive. Plus, we’re both minimalists at heart, and that’s a lot of stuff! The idea lost its shine, and though we’re still going to finish the truck, it will be for someone else to enjoy.
gnob ordered a Dobinson’s lift kit from our friends at Mike’s Custom Toys and we’re busy putting it together. He went with a beefier kit because we’ll also be installing a winch on the front. It’s bittersweet, because I was looking forward to crawling in my own ride, but we have so many other adventures ahead of us. Sometimes, you have to let one dream go to make room for another. Though I still can’t help but envy the lucky person who’s going to end up with Danny Bonaduce.
Video of the Week
Ep. 5 Snale Racing removes Danny's Broken Heart (22RE pull from 1985 Toyota 4Runner)
We pulled the engine out with a quickness, because supposedly a donor truck was showing up later that day with the 4.0 liter that was going in initially. Long story short, dude flaked on us for MONTHS, and we finally gave up and got the 22RE rebuilt instead. If you want to make the short story long and full of bad language 🤬, ask gnob about it some time! 🤣
What We’ve Been Into
We finished the Mad Max trilogy over the week. gnob decided The Road Warrior was his favorite. I still like Beyond Thunderdome the best. Found out that there’s another one coming out next year: Furiosa. It’s a story about the character from Fury Road before she met Max, so does that even count as a Mad Max movie? I’m sure it will be fun, regardless.
Don’t know how many more movies we’ll be watching this month. What’s that saying I got thrown at me 400 million times while I was in the Navy - oh yeah, “If you’ve got time to lean, you’ve got time to clean.” We’ve got a lot of sh*t to get done in a short amount of time, but lord willing and the creek don’t rise.
