2013

What are your goals for the coming year?

I just want to get the taco back out on the trail on a regular basis again.

Fixed it to how I would like 2013 to go.

I would also like to get closer to finishing my build on my rig.

Not too many things left to do to get it where I want it.

goals are to get out on the trail consistantly, save money like crazy, get another dog, hit up a doctor (it has been 7 years), make it out with the ttora crew, and to enjoy time with family and friends more often.

Roll cage. More runs as i have yet to even hit a trail from 2012. All our debt is paid in full in May. So then it will be top of the list to get Felix up and running before the end of the year. We will see. Get in a Moab trip.

Felix is my Hero!

I didn't get to do much vehicle-wise in 2012, aside from learning how to ride a motorcycle. This year I want to do a lot more on the activity front and not just the working-on front.

Vehicular goals:
- Find a nice, clean, hopefully low-mileage Buell Ulysses
- Wheels and tires under the Lexus
- Mild mods to the Tacoma - e-locker, mild armor, maybe some suspension if I can find it cheap
- Probably sell my 4Runner to pay for the new bike
- Do at least one HPDE track weekend in the Lexus
- Get out on the trail - maybe in the Taco, maybe just riding, but at least get out there
- Take a dirt riding class so I don't dump the Buell on my road or any other dirt

Personal goals:
- Lose some weight and get back into shape. This starts very soon cuz I'm sick of this shit.
- Get inked. I think this will be a reward for getting my body back where I want it.
- Build a shop this year. Tried last year but things just didn't fall into place.
- Use my vacation time for actual fun stuff, not sick days and filler at the end of the year. This means I'm going to have to plan on trips and actually do them. Unusual for me, but something I need to get better at.
- Not to copy Russ, but probably put a ring on it.
- Get some big stuff done around the place. Thinking stone front porch, trees, root cellar, smokehouse, etc.
- Try and stay out from under the increasingly heavy hand of government.

I have a hood mount for now that goes into the seem and mounts down on the fender under the hood. I will probably eventually move it to rear bumper depending on how I like the hood setup.

As for actual radio; I'm planning on mounting it under my dash center dash console that has radio and such. There is a small enough gap between the bottom of that and the floor board.
