Default My First Visit....

..to the junkyard is scheduled for tomorrow sometime. I've found one not too far away from my area so I'm going tomorrow just to check things out and hopefully pick up a few things here and there. Wish me luck.

Oh yeah, I'll let everyone know what kind of stock they have and maybe I can join in on the WishList post.

Until then....

There'* one about 45 minutes from my place on RT 83. I go past it all the time when I go to the gf'* place, I just never slowed down enough to actually take a look at it.

Have fun...Almost everyone does.

Morty and Pat are the most fun to go with. Even 4-5 times later..they still get that giddy kid in a candy store w/o direction look.
