well got jackies truck running and made it to arlington tx to have a few beers with Andy and had a good talk with him

Jackie said after sitting there for 3 and a half hours listening to me and andy talk I have to take her to Six Flags, after that we have to get on the road

and haul ass to make it to the next place of intrest!!!!!!
and yes it is going to have to deal with drinking beer!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, you're making it slowly. Keep hitting PSN members across the south if you need a hand with more fixes - lets hope not - Got folks in MS, LA, FL just a shout away... Good luck with the rest of the beer drinking and a bit of driving...

Good to meet you and the Mrs. last night! Glad ya'll could make it out, hope my brothers and I didn't scare you guys too much, we spend way too much time together and we shouldn't be allowed in public.
Be safe!
