This seems like a number that is rarely celebrated outside of class reunions and wedding anniversaries. As I have stated many times before we had no idea that this truck project would still be going ten years later; yet here we are.
Before setting aside time to sit and type my thoughts out I did my usually routine of talking to friends and members of the original crew. At first, my thoughts were a mad jumble of disconnected sentences. Then it was brought to my attention that it would be best to put this all into perspective as succinctly as possible.
How do you quantify ten years?

Thank you to everyone who has helped with the project as well as to those of you who have followed us since the beginning.
