    Works been boring, but its been paying the bills and then some. If there was a 2021 ETK out now I would probably buy it. Looks like a snowless winter here in Maine, although you never know. I kind of want to buy a project car, but I feel like the ETK is too luxurious and fast for me to drive a Moonhawk or something.

    After being Gifted the ownership of my current place of work ( Thanks to my old boss @Cory5503 ). I decided that I would need a shop truck and trailer if I wanted to stay successful since some customers cars were either on the side of the road, or sitting dead in their driveway. Thankfully for me, there was a car dealership just next door with some eye-catching deals on a few HD trucks.

    And finally one hour later, I'm now driving home in my "new" truck. It's a '89 D35 Army spec Diesel, with 123K miles. The transmission, and rear differential were both rebuilt in 2004 with 107K miles on them. The turbo has since been upgraded, along with the injectors to give it a "bit" of a power jump from it's stock factory HP and Torque readings. The dealer had it listed for 13K, but I haggled them down to 10 on the final price. They also had a older goose neck trailer ( with some slight rusting ) on sale for 5k so I got that as well. All for the grand price of 15K.

    I just asked him and he said he'd be interested in setting up a job interview. He wanted me to ask if you're available tomorrow around noon?

    Today's going to be a good day, I've finally gotten all the parts for the crashed ETK. And the frame shop just called me saying that it's fixed. I hooked up my new truck and trailer combo and was on my way. As soon I got back, I wasted no time and got to work on it so I could perhaps drive it out to the west coast. And get it tuned on a dyno, and detailed since the interior was filthy.

    Halfway through assembling it, I decided to install a Nomi N400 Turbo kit that I had bought for 2600$ I figured that since the car was still in pieces, and the turbo was still easily accessible. I just had to-do it, before it was too late. And a hour or two later, It was all done.

    My first full day of work at the sawmill started today. I rolled up in my Hopper a half hour early just to talk with my old friends (and now co-workers).
    screenshot_2020-01-19_15-32-25.png
    Once it was time to clock in, all of us hopped into the work trucks and took a drive down to one of the logging yards.
    screenshot_2020-01-19_15-33-51.png
    Typically, we don't do a whole lot of our own logging, as logging companies will deliver downed trees to the sawmill for us to process. However, the we have a right-of-way to a small area of land off of one of the logging trails, which we are logging ourselves. (how many times can one say logging in one sentence?). We cut down some of the larger and healthier pine trees on the land and loaded them into the 8 foot bed on the blue truck.
    screenshot_2020-01-20_15-19-04.png
    On our way back to the sawmill, we stopped for lunch at the Firwood Cafe. I forgot how good the food was here!
    screenshot_2020-01-20_15-24-54.png
    Back at the sawmill, we ran all of the trees that we had gathered through the mill, turning them into usable lumber such as 2"X4"s and 4"X4"s. We bundled the completed loads, which will be picked up and delivered to the store in town tomorrow.
    screenshot_2020-01-20_15-42-20.png
    After work I made a major decision. I visited the real-estate agent who is selling the house that I looked at a couple days ago. After talking numbers, I put an offer in on the house.
    screenshot_2020-01-18_00-49-04.png
    I felt that it was a safe decision because I have quite a bit of money saved up from my time in Utah and my new job is stable. Now I just have to wait to see if it was approved...

    After a very long hiatus, I am back.
    NEW RP CHARACTER
    Name: James Clinton
    Age: 34
    Occupation: CEO of Vikon USA (export branch of East European car manufacturer Vikon Motors https://fictional-companies-fanon.fandom.com/wiki/Vikon_Motors)
    Vehicle(s): 2015 Vikon Familycarrier, 1972 Autobello Piccolina

    Oh yeah, I live in Belasco City.
    --- Post updated ---
    After a very long day at work, I sit down on my couch and turn on the TV.
    BEAMTV 22- Belasco City, California
    The new expansion to the mall includes things you wouldn't expect.
    As we all know, the Belasco City Mall is getting an expansion. But there are a few things included in the expansion that you wouldn't expect.
    1) There will be three new dealerships inside;
    a) a Vikon dealership,
    b) a Gavril dealership, and
    c) a Burnside dealership

    2) three new food courts, and
    3) fourteen new department stores
    That might sound like a lot. But the state says it will have the airport be moved for the rapid expansion. According to current governor Charles Quincy, it will be all for tourism. "I think that Belasco City is growing because so many people come here to visit, and then they like the city so much that they move," Governor Quincy said in a press conference. It is unknown if a second mall will be opened in the new decade.

    My offer on the house was accepted and there were no other offers higher than mine, which means I'm now the owner of a 30 year old house in the Firwood fishing village for a grand total of $139,000 and a lifetime of payments. I immediately started moving in whenever I had free time throughout the past couple days.

    In other news, I purchased some used 17x9" white wagon wheels for the D-series. Stupid, yes, as I replaced a much more functional set of beadlocked SamPerf Trophy 1000s, but the STX wagon wheels fit the look so much better. The SamPerfs will probably wind up on the Hopper eventually, but beadlocks are a pain in the ass to mount tires on and I don't feel like dealing with that anytime soon.

    The Barstow was also delivered from Utah, but it will most likely instantly find its way into storage for the winter.
    screenshot_2020-01-23_18-29-04.png
    But of course I had to "drive" it at least once before it goes into hibernation...
    screenshot_2020-01-23_19-07-08.png
    And finally, we acquired a new unit for the sawmill. This is a 1984 Ibishu Pigeon straight out of Japan with a custom flatbed on it. The ol' bird came up dirt cheap on an international auction and we just had to have it. It's going to take a month or so to be shipped to the US but it's gonna be perfect for the occasional shenanigans here and there.

    Since the weather has been unusually warm this winter, I'm going to keep the Barstow out of storage until we get some significant snow and the town has to salt the roads.
    screenshot_2020-01-24_13-44-30.png
    I took the opportunity to drive the Barstow to work today due to the nice weather.
    screenshot_2020-01-24_14-21-56.png
    When I arrived at work, I had to swap in a new P-pump on the T65.
    screenshot_2020-01-24_14-23-45.png
    I then hitched it up to the flatbed trailer and loaded some bundles of lumber before delivering the load to a retailer in town.
    screenshot_2020-01-24_15-36-36.png
    Back at the sawmill, one of my friends/coworkers had found themselves in quite the predicament, as he left the crew cab truck in neutral when loading a bundle of wood, prompting the truck to roll forward and bend its rust-weakened frame right between the cab and the bed.
    screenshot_2020-01-24_16-00-36.png
    With the truck obviously totaled and everyone laughing hysterically, including the boss, me and one of my friends loaded the wounded D-series onto my old gooseneck trailer and dragged it down to the scrap yard.
    screenshot_2020-01-24_16-04-34.png
    Now we're on the search for another company crew cab truck or SUV of sorts. If anyone has any leads on one, feel free to let us know.

    I've decided to take a break from my current character until he gets promoted. For now, I'll be taking control of Jimmy Mays, an 18 year old boy with abusive parents and a younger sister (13). He only cares about his sister and is willing to get beaten almost to death by his parents to protect her. Recently, he had to move away from all his friends in Belasco, California, to Firwood, Maine. Due to his terrible upbringing, he frequently breaks the law, from drinking to vandalism to driving irresponsibly. He is pretty popular at school, but doesn't go often.
    upload_2020-1-26_16-54-51.png
    My parents are fighting as usual, so I'm gonna go drop my sister at a friends house and drink a ton.

    upload_2020-1-26_16-57-19.png
    Now that she's safe I can go do whatever I want. The law enforcement sucks here.

    I decided to come over to this sawmill to part in my car. Looks like its used, so hopefully they won't notice me. Not much they can do if they do catch me though.

    It was a long day hanging out at the sawmill. I drank a lot, and now I'm picking my sister up. Hopefully mom and dad have stopped fighting.
    --- Post updated ---
    Sofia (The sister): Jimmy... are you drunk?
    Jimmy: Yeah. I can't quit. You know i'm trying.
    Sofia: Whatever...

    *10 minutes later*
    upload_2020-1-27_22-10-18.png
    Jimmy: We're home. You guys done fighting?
    *The house has empty cans of beer everywhere*
    Father: No we're not done! Get out of here!
    Jimmy: This is my house too!
    *With a yell, the dad knocks Jimmy to the floor and begins punching him.*
    Sofia: Stop dad! stop!
    Father: You're next!
    *After hopelessly watching, Sofia finally pulls Jimmy out of the doorway, and they stumble down to the car.
    Sofia: Drive! Damn it Jimmy, drive!
    *The two jump into the ETK I-Series and drive off into the night. Eventually they come to an inn, where Jimmy pleads a free stay the first night. Looking at their tear stained faces and Jimmy's cuts and bruises, the innkeeper lets them stay. Jimmy almost instantly falls asleep, and Sofia settles in with him.*

    Looks like I need a job if we’re gonna be staying in a hotel. If anyone has one, I’d be happy to have it. It has to be part time as I still have school, though.
