    Red Leifson (L) a firefighter from Spanish Fork, Utah stands at the edge of a 30 foot plus deep crater on U.S. Highway 6
    at mile marker 191 in Spanish Fork Canyon as a Utah Department of Transportation worker walks in the bottom after a truck
    reportedly carrying blasting caps and cord overturned and exploded Wednesday August 10, 2005. The explosion took out both
    lanes of the highway which will be closed indefinitely to both west and east bound traffic.

    No worries on leaving at 7am or so on Monday. I was a day off on my schedule, I should be in salt lake late sat/early sun. So we are good. See ya in a few days, I hit the road in about 20 minutes.

    As far as the V8, it will destroy the VX, I made San Diego to here vvia I70, pulled through Colorado, never slowed down, the 5.4L and 6speed tranny are very nice. Set the cruise and forget about it...

    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

    rowhard has landed in Salt Lake City, well, actually Sandy with Sandy. There is a place called club 90 (old name I guess) that is just around the corner if anyone wants to collect their birthday drink. Better to call me cell then expect me to see it here.
