Starting the beginning of April I will be leaving the farm here in northern Utah and heading to phoenix Arizona to go to school. I will be attending UTI in there diesel tech program. Due to it being such a long drive down and having limited space i will be selling off most of my projects which include 5 farmall tractors both gts and my rare 65 IH truck, and possibly my car. i will be listing the gts here soon i already have the tractors listed on craigslist but i don't think they will sell for much more than a few hundred a piece. I will still be here every now and then but probably not post much. After school i would like to get back into gt projects again but its unknow right now if i ever will.

Good luck at school, I'm sure you'll do well.
As for checking in/not checking in...Nowhere in the rules does it say you HAVE to have a GT, just a love for them.

Best wishes to the new direction.  That area of work is always in demand, so you should do well.  Hoping you do check in from time to time, and hope you do get time for another GT (or more) in the future.

Good luck with school. Like you and Jimmy G, I grew up in a rural area. I never had any real desire to move to the big city, but had to for college. I did have a lot of fun when I was in my late teens and early 20's living in the city, but I was able to get back to the country (my parents place ) on weekends. By my late 20's I was ready to get back to the country. I didn't manage it till I was in my late 30's though.

Good luck in your new adventure! Wish you could hang on to the cool old machines, but if that's what it takes to go after the education it will be worth it.
