Default Re: Introduce yourself

I'm Bob. I'm retired after 30 years with IBM. Have 3 grown kids, 4 grand kids. Wife has PhD in Marriage and Family Theropy (so I don't stand a chance). She heads a family violance agency in the local area.

I acquired a 2004 Dodge 3500 flat bed in August of this year from dealer in Ohio. It had only 1500 miles on it and they were ready to move it. Deal so good, I could afford to fly up and drive it back!

My business is making custom furniture so truck configuration will be perfect for hauling raw materials form lumber yard/mill and delivering end product. See www.saladosawmill.com

Look forward to your entries on this forum.

Greetings...I'm Brian and I teach MIS/Computer classes at a mid-sized regional state university here in TN. I love flying and was a pliot (AF) for a living in my former life. I still have a little airplane that I fly on most days where my schedule allows and the WX cooperates.

I like the format of this site and look forward to seeing it grow and prosper.
Cheers,

Hiya,

Although I don't technically own a Sprinter, I do drive one every day. It's the perfect display vehicle to show a few lines of vinyl railing and composite decking that my company distributes. I'm most often found in New England either at lumber yards or jobsites. People like to walk thru a rolling display and the high top means not much bumping of the noggins. I guarantee if you've seen me on the road, you would instantly recognize the vehicle. I'll get a pic as soon as I get it out of the repair shop. She's a 2002 Freightliner Sprinter 2500 with about 140,000 miles.

Hi all, my name is Derek greetings from the wet coast of British Columbia. I'm a father of two with #3 on the way. My wife and I just purchased a 2003 140 shc passenger van from ebay. We flew down to San Antonio and picked it up. We absolutely love it, nothing like a 2800 mile trial by fire. It was missing the rear seats when we bought it but thanks to Rudi in Phoenix we got matching benches and a Mercedes grill. Thanks Rudi. Aside from the surpentine belt beginning to fray and blowing a fuel line clip it was a pretty uneventful trip.
This Sprinter will carry my growing family and their friends on all their outdoor pursuits for years to come I'm sure. A set of Blizzaks and she's gonna be the ski bus of choice.

Hi everyone,
My name is Al, my wife's name is Janet. On 7/22/06 he purchased our first RV,a Roadtrek RS. We looked at every concievable make and model for at least 5 years. While traveling back home to Gettysburg we passed an RV dealership late one Sunday afternoon,we both saw our unit sitting on the corner. This vehicle immediately filled our wants and needs,rare for a married couple. We like the size,efficiency,driveability,modern appearence,diesel,open view,accessories,warranty,workmanship,German practicality,turning radius,small is beautiful,less is more,it fits our personalities,what a TOY. I am looking forward all other Sprinter owners,I even talk to the Fed X drivers.

With common interest,
Al

I'm another retired Navy guy (hello Llarry), living in the Cincinnati area, doing a bit of driving and a bit of boating...well, maybe a lot of boating. I have a standard, high-top, windowless cargo '04 Sprinter. I did the conversion from cargo van to camper van. If you suddenly woke up in the bed, and you had never seen my van and had no clue where you were...you would absolutely swear you were in the captain's stateroom onboard an old wooden sailing ship. Well, you just have to see it. And most significantly, I don't think I spent over $200 on materials. Of course, when I began buying accessories, the $$$ went up. I love the idea of driving over to PA for a Sprinter get-together, but then I like to drive to the grocery...or where ever. Ahh...I've gone on too long here. Nice meeting y'all!

Ah'rr...Richard: The difference is (drumroll) Donald Trump owns a ship, and I own a boat.
