So, just sitting here today, feeling kinda cruddy, listening to some tunes and going over the future plans for my 82 resto in my head... Imagining how the interior will be and how it'll look when it's painted... And then it hits me... My bronco honey do list is about a mile longer then my life bucket list :duh ... Anyone else have that problem?

Maybe I'm just not ambitious enough with the things I wanna do in life... Or maybe at almost 50 I've done enough... But at this point in the game I'm much more inspired and motivated to work on the honey do list then the bucket list... How bad is that? :histerica

I guess they always say, the first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem...

Hi, my name is Kel, and I'm addicted to my :ford it's been about 6 minutes since I've thought about my rig :rofl:

That is one of the greatest post I've read yet so far when I started reading it I thought I was reading something I had just written as I am literally sitting out front not feeling good drinking my tea and mentally building my truck in my head also LMAO. People that have heard my life story and figured I've done just about everything there is to done to do so my bucket list at this point should be complete. And my Bronco list AKA honey badger. Is a hell of a lot longer and I like doing that list better anyway

Well, I've been alive for a lot longer than I've owned my bronco. But I don't think I've ever finished any to-do list on any vehicle I've ever owned, sadly.

I think you're in the right place. :drinkbud Hell... it'll be a miracle if I ever get my Harley painted.
Too many Bronco issues keep popping up but I am trying to maintain 2, 2nd gens and 1, 5th vs. 1 strong running, beat to hell and rebuilt back, old softail. :brownbag

I reduced my bucket List down to "slapping a weatherman" because... I'm way too old and beat up for my age. :toothless

Haha, you reeled me in with the title :toothless I thought you were thinking of selling your rig :shocked

I don't see a "problem" and don't even like the term "bucket list" :smash

But hey, we're here to help you with your "addiction" :ford

I read your post as/perceive it as/translate it as/interpret as/opine as being PART of your bucket list.

Not; choosing just one, or the other.


I'm going W.A.G. and say you'll probably live at least another 35+ years or so.

Is that long enough to complete your bucket list, which includes your Bronco restore?

Lmao @SRWillis :histerica u know they say a good writer can do that (lure u in with a simple sentence) and I'm no real fan of the term bucket list either. It just rhymed better with bronco then lifetime achievement goals :rofl:

Selling the rig :shocked not in my lifetime... My 14yo has already called dibs on "the farm truck" when I'm done with it.

I can't tell you enough how thrilled i am that y'all are here to help with my addiction... Feelin' the love :grin2:

Awe... U went and got all philosophical on me there @CDA 455 :thumbup a real glass is half full perspective. I like that :thumbup

Thinking of it in that sense, yes they're one in the same BUT do u take that extra $3500 and take the trip abroad, or do u spend it on the new Edelbrock top end? Do u sacrifice the bucket list side of the page and fulfill one on the bronco honey do side of the page? Personally, I'm not independently wealthy so... Realistically it's going to have to be a balanced sacrifice. I'm optimistic that I'll get to complete it all... But I'm also a realist...

:histerica I bout pissed myself when I read the last two lines!
And...I appreciate the beginning. I currently have the engine out of my rig and have the short block back together. Oh, and smack dab in the middle of a "frame off" restomod build of my daughters Falcon. And finishing the installation of my paint booth. And building a shop on my farm. And blah, blah, bunch of other stuff I won't bore y'all with.

We each have our own list of...desires of life...bucket list...etc. I say trust your gut and listen to your heart...In other words...

Everybody all together--Hi Kel. Welcome to the club. You are not alone. I've been an oval addict for 40ish years myself

Hey @89Survivor sorry for the incontinence check, but I'm glad I could make u laugh... It definitely sound like you have your hands full. Hopefully most of them are want tos instead of need tos. Would love to see that falcon when u get it together. I do trust my gut and listen to my heart... The logic in me says spend the $800 and fix the soffit but the heart in me says get the new suspension parts... So conflicted :histerica and yay! Not alone is good. The only times I ever really fit in anywhere is gear head groups and dog groups (canine behaviorist my profession). Thanks for the welcome :smile2:

You're in good company all around FSB and I know you already found the dog lover thread. ;)
I've got an adorable, somewhat autistic AmStaff you'd just love to be ignored by. :toothless

Banshee loves her FSB. I just take care of it and chauffeur her around. :whip


She hates my bike. :whiteflag

I love all my kids! My two legged daughter will even tell you my other two are my kids as well...even though they have four legs and bark.

The later two love riding almost more than eating.....almost! :histerica

Hey @BikerPepe` i love amstaffs (even the slightly autistic ones) and dogs never ignore me. I'm fun and I come in wreaking of cookies. They love me :smile2: I imagine the bike hurts her ears. With hearing 30 times greater then ours they're really sensitive to loud. Cotton balls can help with that. Haven't had any of my dogs in the Bronco yet. Will have to do that soon before we lose the good weather. :thumbup
