Yep! My burned up old 74 Ford pickup just got replaced! It sure did give us some great service and lots of great memories but I know from experience once a vehicle burns it is smoke up to the truck gods and dont even try to bring them back to earth. Let them go to Pele! Done Deal to say the least! These were some good times and I think I only owned one Khukri at the time sadly it wasnt an HI but since then all are HI thanks to Yangdu. Whats this got to do with Khukris you might ask? Well (as Uncle Bill used to say) EVERYTHING!!! Eight years later and few good crypto trades... enter an entirely new beast! Ford Super Duty 7.3L Diesel 4X4 custom flatbed, exhaust, toolbox, 6" lift kit, and 35" ATV tires. Did I miss anything. I can go down the beach or any damn place I want now and as far as I want to rid of drunk teenagers and associated drama. Nothing against drunk teens as I was one too ya know (still am sometimes) but I got dogs and family now so theres a fine place for me and a fine place for them and it aint the same place. I did pretty good then but them logs I couldn't pull up from the wet sand for firewood are now officially kindling, marshmallow sticks, back scratchers, toast on a stick, whatever you want to call them! I now got room for my big dogs in the back seat and Mernie has air conditioning and tunes! I got to figure out how to get the dogs up there tho. They need an extra step i guess? Cant wait to tell my grand kids (add 8 years to this pic)! Never mind the warning on the bucket. She survived Mernies wash bucket! Dogs love the beach too! Still got to ring out some maintenance stuff on the truck before I take it out but the previous owner just took it 1000 miles to the mountains and another trip before I bought it and it did just fine so I should be hauling some Khuks soon! Hope yall like my new haul. I still got to make some removable woodie side rails and maybe a tailgate but should have plenty of new adventures soon. This makes me a happy man beyond what I can say. Stay tuned!
