We started thinking about retirement in mid-March when covid-19 caused the public schools to close. Then when people we know in the education and childcare department told us what we could likely expect in new regulations that confirmed for us that retirement was a good idea.

I don't think this virus is going away easily or quickly and we will all be having a new normal for some time.



Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

Spanish Flu is still around :) aint likely this one will kick it any sooner.

So I guess in the end we all have to decide what we're willing to give up for the rest of our lives ;)  After all, there still is not a complete Flu vaccine....lest folks not realize, it's a 1 in 3 vax that might work if you get the right flu an all...but won't if ya don't....

Guess they could do the same for this coronavirus and call it a vax so we can get back to it ;)

Ok, so here's a voice from the past! 

Hello all (figured this is just the place to show up after such a long hiatus - good as any, I guess)

I too, was pretty much forced to retire because of this thing that is commonly called corona virus... altho I've heard it called many other things (no, real scientific names, not the other ones  c* )

I have a story to tell, but will save that for my own post.

Rogo!

Well after some 6 years or so of not having a jeep I finally couldn't take it anymore and bought one! :D  Woot!  [cool] :) ;D

Was looking for a Ruby (Wrangler Rubicon) and wasn't that interested in new ($$$) so kept my eyes open for something not new but not too abused....found a 2013 Rubicon and went and checked it out.  Had 22k miles on it (yes!) and was basically new.  Had some curious badges and things about it and the salesman thought it was aftermarket work....the wife and I both loved it and brought it home (after a little, but not much, price haggling)....

Here's an article on this particular model:  https://www.fourwheeler.com/vehicle-reviews/129-1302-2013-jeep-wrangler-rubicon/

In truth I kept looking at the hood and thinking something was off as it wasn't flat...did some research (after bringing home) and discovered it was a limited addition!  It was ALL STOCK (except the winch which I am guessing a dealer installed or a pro shop as it's darn excellent install work).  We also paid about $4500 under what it's worth as the dealer had no idea what they were selling and the 10th Anniversary addition sell for a lot more than a box stock standard Ruby does!

Ya, we're excited and I'll post some pics soon! :)

We're off to the cabin for the weekend in it and can't wait to kick in the lockers and see how it does in the snow :D

Can't link the pics from FF anymore so here's a link to my post there with pics of the Jeep :D

Too bad all the old servers are gone :(  None of my pics are up anymore and I hadn't thought of that.

You had a post demonstrating your passive solar collector on here a while back, but I can't seem to find it.  Do you recall what year that was?

Or was that at FF?

Anyhoo, I'm thinking about using one to keep a generator shed warm in the dead of winter.  As I recall yours worked great.

Mine worked too well! lol  d*  I made a YouTube on it...


My advise is to use the best high temp insulation you can!  Mine just wasn't good enough and it vaporized (I tried a baffle to stop cold air coming back in at night -- which wasn't a major issue) and the fan quit....so without the fan to force the baffle open it just got so hot it vaporized the insulation!

Did another video, a short one, on milling

and ordered a drone to get some cool shots of the cabin build, milling and other things.

Should be fun!

Gotta get back to the cabin soon!   I've been doing some Jeeping and camping lately (and ghost town hunting) but need to get back to milling.

I've decided to move to 6" D Logs for the addition like the extra cabin I plan to build after my ghost town hunt in Montana as many of those old log cabins were 6" logs and some were hand hewn down to 4"!  Amazing.

Anyway, for the curious, here is one of the vids I did on the ghost town trip and there are a couple more on my YT page.

Soon I will be back at the cabin milling more logs!  I promise!

Thanks :D  We had a GRAND Time!  I shared 3 vids from that trip.

Now, to get back to the cabin!  I plan to get at least one night up there this weekend to check on things and run the sawmill a bit.  I really need to get back to it!

And I need to get working in my shop too!  Finally, for the first time in my life I have a big woodshop but work has been too much lately (took 61 calls in about 9 hours day before yesterday) to leave me much to get out into the shop with....but I'm starting to get the itch big time and need to get back to projects like making T&G paneling!

So this cabin trip I will likely grab a truckload of pine to start working :D  Woot!
