    My christmas's are pretty simple as my family's celibrations are up in the midwest ....(in florida)
    I keep myself busy with all sorts of odd toys.
    I purchased one of the older p/c flight simulators and am indulging in flying the European continent while up in a DH 88 Comet, via Flight Simulator 2004..I wonder what this will be like with the Shockwave Powerpack add-on I bought too!?


    Ski wise, not much has happend in reguard's to riding... rain and a iritating head cold have set in,to make going out 'not fun'... have continuded to assemble parts for engines..

    Hope you have all had a great Christmas!!!

    I'm there ...going to start early tomorrow and get the pump back in her and drain the remaining 110/93 mix clean the tank out and reposition the exhuast etc in the back. I moved it to get to the hull inserts and now it vibrates on the hull slightly...driving me crazy.

    Been a while....

    Working on the ski came to a screeching halt due to weather, and the fact I bought a 1996 Grand Cherokee for a steal... It is in Damn near pristine condition.

    I got halfway through the FPP installation when I realized I need to shorten a bunch of bolts..

    I am also getting the ski painted Hugger Orange. A friend who owns a paint/body shop is doing it for me. I have to strip it down to the bare hull. When I do, I am sending the cylinders off to Dan Lamey. Not sure if I want to do the case porting also....

    Here is a pic of the Grand Cherokee:

    Sounds good...be a nice difference in power for sure! I love the Grand Cherokee's however...the trannies kept me away from them. I've pulled my friends tranny 3 times in 7 years for a rebuild. I love the room inside and the looks....shame there is not a updated tranny for it =0(
