    Woot! My "yellow monster" is built, crated and ready to ship! I'm overnighting the payment balance in the morning and hopefully, will have it sometime next week.

    Congrats! The wait is a killer but well worth it.

    Seeing "it" will likely come much sooner than "up and running". LOL

    Jim...
    That's not a kit you bought there. Fully assembled, ready to run, right out of the box.

    That I absolutely know...my comment about "up and running" is relative to the human side of things. The learning curve, in other words.

    I had the pleasure of picking up my machine at the factory.

    I toyed with that idea, but after doing the drive for training, I'm glad I didn't. I'd be concerned about my small utility trailer doing that kind of mileage and speeds over 12+ hours of drive time each way. So I'll do the dance with a roll-back once the machine gets to this area via whomever is the over the road trucking firm that gets the short straw. The crate is too wide to fit on my 5'x8' trailer without building at least an 8" riser so the crate can clear the fenders, so I can't just use it to pick up at the trucking terminal like I did with my slider. (If I had decided to do factory pickup, I would have done so un-crated with a tarp with the computer goodies in my Grand Cherokee)

    Maybe I need to take some vacation time off work and come help you "work" to uncrate and set it in place.
    Thanks & Happy Wood Chips,

    They will have my final payment tomorrow...apparently Cartersville is just far enough off the beaten path that the USPS couldn't provide one day service for my twenty five bucks. I "hope" that I'll have it by the end of next week...but I'm not going to make any assumptions until it happens. The shop is ready and I'm ready. And I really need to know this, too, because I need to schedule the paving work for our parking areas and long driveway and I can't have either that or the delivery conflict with each other.

    The guest room is ready for you, Dennis. Food is pretty good here, too...

    Woot! Have Bill of Lading. Hopefully, the "yellow monster" will get picked up today, but it could be Monday. I had to do a little dancing and persuasion around what happens on this end because of being at a residential address that's not safely accessible for transfer to the roll-back, but I'll get that worked out with the nice folks at "Road Runner" once the dispatcher calls me.
