New member from Indiana

Hi all. New to the forums.

A little about me:
Born and raised in Indiana. Married with 3 little girls. I'm a stay at home mom that raises chickens and hunts anything with a season. I like to go fishing and garden when the weather's nice. I enjoy fixing and building anything and everything. We currently have an 01 Crown Vic and a 99 F350, but I'm shopping for another 7.3 to add to the mix. I'm looking for a stock Excursion, but they are hard to come by, and the prices I'm going to end up paying the same or more for an Excursion this year than my husband paid for his truck ten years ago.

Probably 15 miles or so north of me. Drive by often, but never been. I'd break something for sure
