Default Not new either

Hey everyone, been a while!
Start right out with it...went to a brand X.
Decided it was time for a 4-door and started looking. I was trying to target an 04.5 to 06 3rd gen, 4 door, 6 speed manual, 4wd. Found a few, but all had some pretty high milage and/or were really beat up.
Then I happen upon an early 07 Duramax LBZ, one owner that wasn't his daily driver, only 61k on the clock, and well taken care of. Read up on them a bit and decided I probably shouldn't pass it up.
Had my old 01CTD for 12 years, she never once stranded me. This LBZ has a lot to live up to. We'll see.
Missed the site, the lack of drama/BS/bashing, and all the good folks here so decided I'd drop in on occasion.

Me too. I like working on rigs when it's a mod being done...not so much when it's a break down.
I think one of my last posts was in the rant thread in 2012 about going through a divorce. Had a lot of fun for a couple of years and then met the girl I wish I'd met 20 years ago. She truly loves all the same things I do, camping, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, just plain being in the outdoors. I'm the last one in my family line that had the chance to keep our family name going, I didn't ever have any kids of my own after gaining three step-daughters in my first marriage. The youngest one just graduated H.S. this year and the middle one has made me a grandpa, wow how time flies. Anyway, I have two cousins that I was hoping would have a boy to carry on the family name, one tried three times and got all girls and the other one has no interest in having kids. I decided (we) that I'd have a go at it a few years ago. Colton turned 5 in June of this year. He is 5 and I mentioned my middle stepdaughter made me a grandpa about a year ago, so Colton is already an uncle lol. Funny how things can change, but I've never been happier. Just a little catch up on the last several years.
