Dude just go for it.

It needs a decent scrubbing inside, and some odds n ends but it's better looking than most of the beaters you see people limping around.

Yeah, that Astro is amazing!

I'm currently making call to see if we can get a truck out your way. I've got a stash spot for the car, but I'm short on drivers.

Yeah, our shed cats [no barn here :P] have unlimited food, and they still kill all the mice/squirrels/voles/bugs they can.

Mouse vs catfood is probably like steak vs cereal for you & I.

x3 on the safety shake after lifting.

I've done it in the dirt, that's no fun.

If you're on a paved surface it's much nicer.

If you're under some kind of cover, it's a walk in the park.
