My typos and I have returned. I'd encountered some automotive issues that bogged me down, and kept me from my hobbies for a while, but I'm back. Long story short, this coming summer, my beloved First-Gen Toyota 4X4 pickup will have to go under the knife for a new motor, but considering that's one every 30 years and 300K miles, I can live with that. Besides, I know keeping this truck and maintaining it will pay itself forward better than jumping ship for a newer truck. Anywho, I just wanted to let you guys know I haven't forgotten about you, and that I'm excited to continue learning for the brilliant minds here on SMF. goals for this coming year: -Finally get an AMNS -smoke anything I can lay my hands on -learn all about cold-smoking. I'm itching to try some home-made andouille! Take care, everybody!
