    277 sold about a week after we put it up for sale to a guy in Wenatchee, it's been gone for at least 6 weeks. Got it out the door for a little more than we owed on it, ate the tax. A guy in Oregon picked up the 312 for $124K, we had to get it gone as it was just sitting. My dad is an idiot, didn't know how to get out there and run that business so as soon as I left for school on the 10th of September the 312 sat for a good 5 weeks. Worst thing about this whole venture is I feel like a complete failure, but I guess it wasn't really my fault.

    Still have the F450 for sale, my dad is going to pay me to sell it over here in Lynnwood. Yeah, let me fit that into a 30+ hour work week and a full time student schedule. Life just keeps getting better and better. :dizzy:

    Man I'd love the opportunity, I may take next year off and generate some money to get my BA in Business.

    Scag........Seems to me like Ksss is beating around the bush, and oh so slightly dangling a carrot out there. You should fly out, meet the guy, spend a weekend working together to see if you guys get along........and if so, talk seriously about transfering to the Potatoe State and working part time/full time for him.

    It's a possibility, we'll see what happens. I have to go to school next summer to catch up on some credits that I didn't take last year. Rigby is 820 miles from here ;)

    Oh come on Scag we all know you want to go better pack up all your worldly possessions and head off to Idaho :laugh:

    School is important and if you need the degree you are working on you should finish it.
