A common internet complaint is that pickup truck owners, do not use them for their intended purpose. I have actually found that to be true for the most part. Obviously not on Oppo, and not in my direct circle of friends, but my neighbors/colleagues that have pickups...All top shelf trucks that have never seen more than a rough piece of tarmac.

Not me though, RedTed did work this weekend. Saturday I picked up lumber for a raised garden bed, built it, then went a picked up a cubic yard of soil. I carefully drove right into the backyard to dump the dirt too!

From there it was back to the depot, to get compost and a sheet of Masonite for the top of my work bench.

Sunday I had to stop at my parents to feed their dogs. So I threw my now retired winter wheel setup for the M3 in the bed, and snuck them into my parents attic:) I had to move my mom’s corvette to do that, so obviously I had to take it for a spin...gotta let it warm up.

My wife said “should we tell her that were taking it out?” I replied in my best Bobby Boucher voice “what mama don’t know, won’t houite her.”

After that was depot trip #3 to buy all of the wood for the gigantic chicken coop we are building. Somewhere along the way I managed to finish up the power locks/keyless entry too.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, some additional pics below.
