Salem Oregon New to diesels!

Hello all.. I'm new to not only Ford, but to diesels as well. Yesterday (Tuesday the 23rd) bought a 2001 F350 crew, dually 2x4 long box 7.3 6 speed. It only had 78k miles on it and I got it for under $20,000. With a 3 yr 36k mile "everything" warranty.

Little about us.. we have a 5th wheel and boat and are in Newport crabbing and camping ALL THE TIME!! Some Fridays my wife will call me from work and say "hook up the 5er, ready the boat we are going coastal for the week end". Those always seem to be the best trips. We went crabbing 2 week ends ago, and got 12 keepers. Wife doesn't eat them, so if anyone in the area wants some fresh cooked crabs when we are over there.. give a yell!!

Awesome!! On any given week end we are there with boat and 5th wheel (we stay are the Newport Marina and RV park) we will catch, 12 to 24 crabs. We mostly give them away at the campsites. (been crabbing and cooking crabs for 30 yrs) Sometimes people look at you like "yeah, sure".. but I cook my own, I know they are safe to eat.

Wife tried them once, didn't like the taste.. I know.. whats up with that!!

This pair came right up to the boat that 2 week ends ago. My son actually fed them by hand. Not sure chicken (what we use for bait) was good for them.. but they liked it.

The 5er is easy.. I will have to upload some of the boat to photo bucket.. Boat is a SeaSwirl cuddy cabin, 5er is a 36 ft triple slide Carriage Carri Lite. All the comforts of home.. 6k onboard genny. The last pic is us in the RV lot at Chinook Winds casino this past July.
