From the Desk of John Rourke – December 13th, 2017


I have now convinced myself I must have this……

Well – Life Happens.

My older son had a driver run a red light and Jonathan t-boned him. He was banged up a bit but is OK. The accident was witnessed by a police officer so the blame was rightly placed on the other driver. He was driving my youngest sons 1994 Jeep Cherokee.

Project Jeep Cherokee is put on hold….for now.

The Cherokee will be totaled and I am waiting to hear what the payout will be. The plan is to buy another one . Hopefully, we will get enough to pick up a slightly newer model after the interior change but I’m not really concerned with that. A lift kit already included would be great. Of course, when I look around it is possible a different make and model might be found.

A budget 4×4 around $2000 leaves limited options and after working on and driving the Cherokee I am biased in that direction.

Think forward to 2020. How nasty is this next Presidential election going to get? Of course, we’ll have other elections on a State-level as a precursor.
