    I live in Rochester NY and I’ve been wanting a PUP for years, I’ve wanted to remodel an older one.

    Well, this weekend my dreams came true. A family friend gave me a 97 Dutchman that’s been sitting their woods for 10 years. I got it home but I can’t open it, the cable snapped.

    I’m sure this is one of those moments I should walk away. But I didn’t. I propped it up a little… it smells. The wood is rotted. But it looks nice inside.

    I’m going to give this a try. It’s a 100% gut job. But I have ambition.

    I’ll probably be asking all sorts of questions. but I’m pretty pumped for an adventure!
