This is currently in the easel. I'll walk past it a couple more days before deciding if it's done finally.

Re: The Bar 2014 Edition

Hey Thoromir, nice to see you - how've you been? Yeah, that sounds like a tricky situation, Ygmir. Not using credit could be a choice, or it could be the result of having done it badly or something. I've been, I've been. :-) Credit is a sticky thing. Finally got wise a couple years back when the fi...

Re: The Bar, Volume #4

My issue is, with my house being old, and there "perhaps" being unpermitted structures on the property, they want tons of upgrades and permits, essentially negating any cost efficiency I might gain. I can't blame them for wanting everything up to the latest standards. I can blame the stan...

Re: Travel trailer, cargo trailer or.....

Your right yggy, no brakes on the trailer. I feel better now though, as I was having some sticker shock at the price of having a receiver hitch installed, I was thinking $200, but the local hitch guy is talking over $500. The weight shouldn't be an issue as the load will be very adjustable. Thanks ...

yeah, we've tied ourselves to time, way too much. "tomorrow morning" should be a fine answer. accurate time is good, as a relative thing for stuff like GPS, and internet things. but, IMO, "natural time" has very few components, that matter. Agreed Ygmir! In fact Right now, by my...

Re: One Item for BM a Day

Those things look awesome, but the smaller capacity means we'd need more of them (looks like it would cost us roughly double). We saw them at the local sports joint in the runup to the playa this past year. Loved the idea, but we were already past the point of new business. Thicker lined and stacka...
