    You'll eventually get those "wishes" all in due time. Keep plugging away, and you'll get there. Then start working on the next wish list.

    Fine young man, everyone has got to have dreams. But while your dreaming dream bigger and go with a F250 Ranch King, they are sweet.

    Did you follow scouting all the way to Eagle? I did, and I'm glad. For as much crap as people give you for being a Boy Scout, it's amazing how good it looks on your resume and during interviews. I've only had 4 jobs (Target 6 mo, Pepsi-1 yr, Coors/Miller- 4 1/2 yrs, and SAFD 1 1/2 yrs and counting) but in every interview it has been at least mentioned, if not discussed.
    I don't mean to hijack your thread, just encouraging you to stick with it and see it through.

    Yes, for it to be a dream list I'd get a 3/4 ton 250/2500 as well.

    Yep i attained eagle scout this year. When i first started out i would advertise "Eagle Scout Mowing lawns". I noticed people trusted me alot more. There was one guy who was insane about security and he was going out of town and needed someone to mow his lawn. I don't think he would have trusted me otherwise.
