Congrats Alf. I was thinking at Grand Forks to get a photo of your rig but it didn't look its best with that Montana mud. Guess we might be the last forum members to see your combo with Frontier. Are you gonna get the Escape gold graphics for the new tow?

Is the reason they call them shrinks is because thatís what happens to your wallet after you visit one? I got a couch downstairs and will work for cold beer if you stop by again. Let me know and iíll Crayon you in.

Just a hunch

As long as we are guessing, Iím going with a Flxible Twin Coach, Restored, Modified with a towing deck, and set up for a party bus when party central needs to go mobile. Itís the logical choice for a world class bus driver. Do I win?

Hi: All... Well the tug you've all been waiting for has finally made it home. It's a beautiful Bright White 2016 RAM Laramie Longhorn V6 Eco Diesel Crew Cab w/ Black and Cattle Tan leather seats. Lots of real wood trim on the doors and console so I need to get out my Pledge to protect the finish. 5'7" box with factory spray on bed liner and trailer tow pkg. Couldn't ask for more if I ordered it myself!!! Alf

Hi Alf
Congrats on your new rig. Those are real nice pick ups. Hope diesel is more economical than gasoline in your area. Youíll be humming plug it in , plug it in, on those cold Ontario nights.

I just looked, you gained quite a bit of carrying capacity. I guess someone from the cheese state can relax now.
