Hard to Leave

As you may have noticed, there have not been many updates since Hunter was born.  As I am sure you all know, things have been a bit hectic.  There just does not seem to be enough time in the day.  I have had several posts ready to go in my head and just no time to actually type them out.

Not a scratch or speck of dirt in the undercarriage, and a set of street tires. This was obviously somebody’s pavement queen and had rarely, if ever, seen a dirt road in its 73,000 miles. Oh, I almost forgot Paige’s favorite features, dual climate control and heated seats.
