Yep, I'm looking forward to seeing the slabs coming off of the mill.

in the mean time 4x4, try painting flames on it. ;D
It's been proven many, many times. Painted flames and chrome add horsepower.

If you really want to push the HP numbers always use the super duper silicone spark plugs wires, the difference on a diesel is incredible.  :laugh:

What you need is a rear view mirror to hang a set of fuzzy dice from.

I was guessing about 3500, somewhere between live oak and ipe.  Probably tough enough to chip a tooth on unless simmered in the crock pot for several hours.

When I used to go see my kin deep in the Kaintuck hills and hollers, they would always pull out the good Chinette, and slaughter and serve up pot roast goat, and we'd eat it for dinner pretty much every night.  Man, it was tough and stringy.  So I started stopping by the Wal Mart to get a couple canned hams on the way up there, generally enough to last the week, that way I could bring a present of food and also have something decent to eat.  After awhile, when they would come out to meet me at my truck when I showed up, they would always ask how I was doing, and if I brought the ham. :D  

I havenít eaten goat in a long time, but sure can still remember how it tasted
